UPDATED:Phony Alert-Obama’s Kinda Sorta Apology for Health Plan Lies

UPDATED: So sayeth the One: 

“I am sorry that they are finding themselves in this situation based on assurances they got from me,” the president told NBC in an interview recorded at the White House on Thursday afternoon.

Barack Obama’s internal poll numbers must be really grim because about 2 hours ago he tried, in an EXTREMELY uncomfortable, cringe-inducing way, to almost accept responsibility for his Obamacare debacle. He gave an exclusive interview to the modern American equivalent of house organ Pravda, NBC News. Here’s Chuck Todd:

I’ll start with health care. It’s probably the most quoted thing or requoted thing you have said in your presidency, “If you like your health care plan, you can keep it.” You said it a lot during the run up. At this point, though, it’s obviously something– a promise that has not been able to be kept. Just today, the Denver Post — 250,000 people in Colorado are seeing health insurance policies cancelled. Some of those people liked those policies. And they can’t keep them. What happened? PRESIDENT OBAMA: Well– first of all, I meant what I said. And we worked hard to try to make sure that we implemented it properly. But obviously, we didn’t do enough– a good enough job– and I regret that.

Seriously? It wasn’t implemented properly? Uh, no. It was implemented EXACTLY as it was designed. In the summer of 2010, that Barack Obama’s Department of Health and Human Services wrote regulations that would necessitate that millions lose their policies. The One crisscrossed the country for over two years reciting the lie that he now claims to “regret.” Now, wait, he doesn’t regret lying he regrets not doing ” a good enough job” on implementation. Let me translate. “I regret that we couldn’t keep this con going because too many people found out about what a disaster my health care scheme is. Damn you  internet and talk radio!” Notice that he isn’t really apologizing for, or promising to do anything about, the cancellation notices. Of course not!  Those cancellation plans are part of the design. Over the weekend we learned, that the policy advisers in the Obama White House suggested that he qualify his assertion that “you can keep your plan” because for millions that probably wouldn’t be true. They were over ruled by the political operatives. We discussed this inconvenient fact on last Sunday’s show. This ridiculous “apology” doesn’t make anything better for Obama, and more important, for Senate democrats running for re-election next year. Barack Obama, and his health care scheme, are toxic. That’s why when B. Hussein travels to Louisiana tomorrow, Sen. Mary Landrieu will not appear with him. Scheduling conflict, donchaknow.

CHUCK TODD: Do you feel like you owe these folks an apology for misleading them? PRESIDENT OBAMA: You know– CHUCK TODD: Even if you didn’t intentionally do it, but at this point, they feel misled. And you’ve seen the anger that’s out there. PRESIDENT OBAMA: You know– I regret very much that– what we intended to do, which is to make sure that everybody is moving into better plans because they want ‘em, as opposed to because they’re forced into it. That, you know, we weren’t as clear as we needed to be– in terms of the changes that were taking place. And I want to do everything we can to make sure that people are finding themselves in a good position– a better position than they were before this law happened.

“Weren’t as clear as we needed to be?” No, Barry, you were perfectly clear, crystal clear, and you lied in the interest of political expediency. More lies, and lies about lying, trying to salvage his pathetic legacy. That’s all this “apology” is, and it’s a disgrace like nearly everything else that comes out of this administration.

Think of it this way: I apologize for the fact that you are too stupid to appreciate that I was trying to make sure that you got something “better” than what you, in your ignorance, chose for yourself. I apologize for the fact that you feel bad, even though you shouldn’t.

Hey Obama worshippers: is this really what you voted for?

All the rest of you: will you ever believe on word this man utters ever again?

What You Know, Joe? Show Notes 1/13/13

Joe Biden prepares to release his carefully considered recommendations to prevent “gun violence,” which he has had in a drawer for the last 30 years, while Lame Stream Media continues to pretend that the emperor has clothes.

They’re back. The “No Labels” group, as in No Principles, No Brains and No Commitment to our rights wants to “compromise” on our liberty. I say screw that.

Taxation Without Cessation | The Weekly Standard (A MUST READ)

According to White House, Congressional Budget Office (CBO), and U.S. Census tallies, when John F. Kennedy was in the White House in 1962, federal tax revenues were $534 per capita, or $4,178 in today’s dollars. Last year (according to those same sources), federal tax revenues were $7,793 per capita. So, from 1962 to 2012, taxes rose 87 percent even after accounting for inflation and population growth. In other words, across the past 50 years, real (inflation-adjusted) per-capita taxes have nearly doubled.

Of course, this 87 percent increase in per-capita taxation hasn’t remotely kept the federal government from racking up higher deficit spending. With JFK in the White House in 1962, the federal government spent 7 percent more than it had available to spend—$1.07 going out for every $1 coming in. With Obama in the White House, it has spent $1.56 for every $1 available.

Carney Decries GOP “Obsession” with Four Dead Americans; Susan Rice Still Lying

As nearly everyone with a pulse now knows, on September 16, U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice infamously appeared on five Sunday morning news shows to present a false and deceptive narrative to the American public. Her ostensible purpose was to explain the murder of four Americans in Libya on the eleventh anniversary of the original 9/11 attacks. We know that she told us that these deaths were the result of “spontaneous” demonstration, caused by a “reprehensible” (Hillary Clinton’s word) “offensive” YouTube video. Give Ms. Rice credit. She was able to recite this risible story with a straight face. As of today, she’s still lying. After meeting with the three Republican senators who, unlike Barack Obama, don’t consider the murder of 4 Americans “a bump in the road,” and want to get to the bottom of what happened, she issued a statement describing the meeting, which included the following statement:

“We stressed that neither I nor anyone else in the Administration intended to mislead the American people at any stage in this process.”

Please stop insulting our intelligence, Ambassador Rice. This story is not believable, and it’s outrageous that after these four brave Americans were killed, you, at a minimum, enabled the Obama Administration’s deception and continue to try to deceive us with ridiculous lies. The reason that you went before the cameras to read grossly inaccurate talking points is contained in one statement that you made on “Meet the Press;” specifically, “ We have decimated al Qaeda.” The truth about Benghazi renders that statement a pathetic, and tragic, joke, and you know it. Have you no decency, Madam? Of course, that is a rhetorical question. Like the jug-eared leftist jackass she so willingly serves, Susan Rice doesn’t give a rat’s rear end about those murdered Americans. They are collateral damage, “a bump in the road,” and those of us who know that we have a moral obligation to seek justice for them, have what Obama’s mouthpiece Jay Carney calls “an obsession,” Damn right, Skippy. Any time four American are murdered by head chopping Islamic maniacs, we are going to be obsessed with finding out what happened, and also with making certain that those who sacrificed them on the altar of political expediency are called out for the contemptible lying vermin that they are.

Let me repeat: this is no time for another affirmative action appointee.
