President Obama is the Real ‘Pretender’
President Obama made yet another attempt to mitigate the unpopular political disaster that is ObamaCare. His hopes seem to rest on making Americans believe that he used RomneyCare as the sole example for ObamaCare. I guess I can’t really can’t blame him for this. I mean, if I was running for re-election and close to 3/4 of the country thought a individual mandate at the federal level was unconstitutional? I’d want to blame someone else for it as well. It’s not the politics of it that makes me laugh, it’s the word choice he uses trying to hang Obamacare, which more than half the country wants repealed, around the neck of Mitt Romney. From CNN:
Mitt Romney is “pretending” the health care plan he instituted in Massachusetts is different than the national plan, President Barack Obama said.
In an interview with Public Radio International that aired Thursday, Obama pointed to the similarities between the two plans, without mentioning the Republican frontrunner by name.
We designed a program that actually previously had support of Republicans, including the person who may end up being the Republican standard bearer and is now pretending like he came up with something different,” the president said.
Pretending? Really, Mr. President?
Who was ‘pretending’ when we were told, with a now famously debunked chart, if we passed the $800B+ ‘Stimulus Bill’ unemployment wouldn’t go over 8%?
Who was pretending when we were told negotiations for Obamacare would be held on C-Span?
Who was pretending when we were told there would be no lobbyists in an Obama administration?
Who was pretending when were were told Gitmo would be closed in one year?
Who was pretending when George W. Bush was called “unpatriotic” for adding $4T in debt and then proceeded to add more debt than that in less than half the time?
Who was pretending when we were told ObamaCare would cost $940B only to find out it will now cost $1.7T?
Who was pretending when the White House says its ‘budget’ would reduce deficits by $3.2T over 10 years when it actually adds $3.5T over the same period of time?
Any idea who was pretending then, Mr. President? No? Here’s a hint: Look in the mirror.
