Well, no, it is not exactly what he said….but it’s what he meant. We’re always told after what he really meant instead of what he said. So I just cut to the chase.
All along we’ve been told that what he said is not exactly what he meant, like when millions lose their medical coverage, and his minions run out to say what the president actually meant.
He did say “I was burned” on the website. He had to correct himself to say we all got burned. But the Freudian slip popped out that everything is always about him. Like the phony fainters at the rallies always happens to him.
And now comes Obama’s apology to all those people losing their healthcare coverage, which is just as meaningful as everything else he has said – including his five-year-old promise. Of course, it’s as close to an apology as President Broke-Back will ever come. It is not his fault it must fall short. He cannot possibly take full responsibility, really, and apologize. That cannot happen. The faux apology:
“I am sorry that they are finding themselves in this situation based on assurances they got from me,” he told NBC News in an exclusive interview at the White House.
“We’ve got to work hard to make sure that they know we hear them and we are going to do everything we can to deal with folks who find themselves in a tough position as a consequence of this.”
You are sorry people are “finding themselves” screwed based on something you said? But no, it did not happen to them just based on what you said, it happened based on your plan. Since you are not changing that, the disingenuous apology is worthless because the offense still stands – doing what it has done. Convince people that you hear them?
In fact, we all said there would be these problems all along. But you stepped up your campaign to punctuate the lie that if people liked their plan they could keep their plan. You had your comrades repeat that
lie promise across the country and guarantee people would not lose a plan they wanted to keep. It was a propaganda campaign.
When questions were raised about your plan and consequences, the media cut criticism short by repeating your promise that if people liked their plan they would not lose their plan. Questioning that would be calling you a liar. Joe Wilson proved that is taboo.
You made everyone complicit in your lie, even media. It was a great system. Arguments could be shot down with a single line, saving your administration the trouble of repeating the lies. Just repeat: “Obama said “if you like your plan, you can keep your plan.”” It was guaranteed — insuring not that promise but the sale of your plan. People took the bait to the bank and the ballot box.
If anyone wondered how incompetent and backwards Obama is, exhibit A:
Mr. Obama promised at a fundraiser on Monday that the site “would get fixed,” but then there needs to be a discussion “about federal procurement when it comes to IT.”
Shouldn’t that procurement discussion have happened before not after this? Not in Obama’s world. The record of the CGI can not even be called spotty, but it matches Obama’s record. Hey, maybe “procurement” problems caused the site problems?
Wa Times reported:
Whatever the reason for giving CGI this contract, it was not based on a successful record of maintaining sensitive personal information for a government.
Even worse than the financial loss for Canadians, the computer system has had repeated privacy breaches.
So maybe the contractor and their record are consistent with Obama, and just what Dr O ordered? Another thing he can claim he was out of the loop on, and be fully responsible for but not in this lifetime. If anyone could make this company look stellar in comparison, it’s Obama. But how about that apology? It all depends on the definition of apology.
Now sorry seems to be the hardest word.
