“I am sorry that they are finding themselves in this situation based on assurances they got from me.”
They should have known I was lying. Where have they been for last five or six years?
Those people will be better off for it. If they knew! Dumb people to actually believe what I said. Now I can’t be responsible for the stupid ignorance of American people.
His loyal base doesn’t care one bit that millions of people are losing their medical coverage. They just don’t care! They care about destroying the coal industry, the Koch brothers, or statements in Rand Paul’s book, but not this.
What Obama hoped is that this would be like any of his campaign promises he broke. Actually, that is expected. Everyone knows he doesn’t keep promises. He’s been clear.
He assumed it would be treated as another broken promise rather than the calculated big, fat lie it always was. He thought it would get lumped in with that pile of other broken promises. So not only do those people have crappy plans, but they have crappy sense to let themselves believe something he says.
