What do the statements have in common?
“Read my lips, no new taxes” — George H Bush
“I did not have sexual relations with that woman” — BJ Clinton
“”I can say categorically that his investigation indicates that no one on the White House staff, no one in this administration, presently employed, was involved in this very bizarre incident.” Richard Nixon on the Watergate burglary
“Not even a smidgen of corruption” – Barry Soetoro, Barack Hussein Obama
“If you like your plan, you can keep it” – Barack Hussein Obama
“If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor.” – BHO
“No matter how we reform health care, I intend to keep this promise: If you like your doctor, you’ll be able to keep your doctor; if you like your health care plan, you’ll be able to keep your health care plan.”
“If you like your current plan, you will be able to keep it. Let me repeat that: If you like your plan, you’ll be able to keep it.”
“If you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor, period. If you like your health care plan, you’ll be able to keep your health care plan, period. No one will take it away, no matter what.” – Barack Obama, June 15, 2010
Fuhgedaboudit! Of course, they would like us to forget these
statements… lies. But people don’t tend to forget them, especially when constantly repeated, even by allies.
With respect to the first three, there was at least some accountability for them. Bush lost, the blue dress came out, Cinton was impeached in the House, and Nixon resigned.
Now a few words from Nixon:
“I was not lying. I said things that later on seemed to be untrue.” — President Richard Nixon, reflecting on the Watergate scandal in 1978
What really hurts is if you try to cover it up.” –President Richard Nixon at the beginning of Watergate.
“People have got to know whether or not their President is a crook.”
“I don’t give a s**t what happens. I want you all to stonewall–plead the Fifth Amendment, cover-up, or anything else. If that will save it, save the plan.” – Nixon to his subordinates during Watergate
Obama has his own theory: If you like your lie, you can keep your lie, period!
