Obama Lied, Media Credibility Died

On Monday evening, NBC News reported that President Obama wasn't just wrong, he was willfully lying when he said that if Americans liked their insurance plans, they could keep them under Obamacare. "(T)he administration knew that more than 40 to 67 percent of those in the individual market would not be able to keep their plans, even if they liked them," NBC News reported. To clarify, that's some 7 to 11 million Americans. (Must be really blatant if NBC says it)

The administration, NBC News said, had known all of this since 2010. Even as President Obama repeatedly told the American people that nobody had to lose their insurance, he recognized that millions would lose their insurance. But just as importantly, the Obama-defending media knew all of this years before the 2012 election ... and they downplayed it or ignored it altogether. In June 2012, PolitiFact, a supposed nonpartisan fact-checking site, said that Obama's "if you like your health plan, you can keep it" language was "half-true." The media routinely ignored President Obama's provably false promise.

And so he was re-elected.

And now, here we are, almost a year after that re-election, and some in the media are now telling the truth about Obama's lies. Too little, too late.

But Americans should be glad to get any honesty at all from the Obama sycophant media. A huge swath of the media continues to maintain that Obama never lied. Even when called on their "half-true" rating, after it had been completely debunked, PolitiFact stood by it: "Overall, Obama's statement was partially accurate but left out important details or took things out of context." CNN's Joe Johns explained that the statements might have been "over broad."

In fact, the media went even further. The NBC News scoop prompted Obama administration matriarch Valerie Jarrett to tweet-lie that insurance companies were truly to blame for tossing people off insurance -- a nonsensical take given that insurance companies (set ital) must (end ital) throw people off non-complying insurance plans under Obamacare.

Nonetheless, that falsehood quickly became the favored meme of the media echo chamber, with Chuck Todd of NBC News stating, "They were making promises that that they were hoping the insurance companies were going to keep." President Obama's favorite "conservative" columnist, Josh Barro of Business Insider, actually tweeted that Americans should be fine with the government throwing them off their insurance policies, since Americans are stupid anyway: "Vast swathes of policy are based on the correct presumption that people don't know what's best for them. Nothing new." He added, "Elitist technocrats are also the ones making you buy pasteurized milk and buy cars with seat belts."

So, for many in the media, Obama's lie didn't matter in the slightest. Obama clearly fibbed to the American people when he told them they could keep their insurance, but that was of no consequence: the tyrannical ends justified the corrupt means.

That always seems to be the case with the media, which ignored the Internal Revenue Service scandal, Obamacare lies, Benghazi, and the failing economy to boost Obama back to power. And now, the coverup continues -- a "60 Minutes" feature on Benghazi this week failed to mention either President Obama or then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. No wonder our power-hungry president thinks he can get away with anything. To this point, he has. (It does seem that the more scandals that come to light, the less they seem to matter).... Maybe WE can break the law, ignore the Constitution and no one will care????? Some how I don’t think most of our Politics are the right kind to get a pass....

When Bush lied, thousands got killed and inflicted with life changing injuries, not to mention the mental toll on our soldiers, so I guess we're heading in the right direction as a country. Nice of you to take notice. Thanks vets! You have a president who has your back (finally).

It really must suck to have your sole response to Obama's failures, is a response that was long ago proven to be a lie.

3 separate independent investigations said that Bush didn't lie.

That mean YOU are worse than Bush.

Obama recites, so he never lies personally.

 

What he was told to say, was a lie he trufully believes. Therefore he is of virtue denying real like every other character saving humanity and those kind of citizens never lie collectively.

 

Yet, these collective ideals lead societal evolution to where no gender can know whaat real is as a physical absolute now has always been the eternity threatened and promised to an afterlife by not accepting reality with Hell or Heaven.

 

Hell is reliving yesterday's mistakes over and over knowing it wasn't right and Heaven is repeating yesterday's mistakes believing it will change by using new definitions of directing social justification to beleive tomorrow is a better time than today.

 

Now is present in all three categories of time spaced artificially in theory and theology genetic coninutaion is only s=assembled currently in this atmosphere absolutely.

 

What is a lie again? what does truthn have in common with now being eternity? Please say nothing or everything? Actions speak louder than words when balanced between contracting results expanding the details only adding now to be this universe every where all the time.

 

I know my placement within molecular migration never duplicating details here. Does anyone else admit they do also? I haven't heard a soul of societal evolution even coming close.

Millions will now die due to barry's death panels and those that will lose their current coverage because of his lies.

All the Democrats at the time told the same exact lie. Many other governments also told the same exact lie. You are an idiot. Look up the definition of a lie. If you make a false statement believing it is true you are mistaken not lying. In point of fact Saddam had used WMD on the Kurds and killed thousands of them. In 2006 WMDs were found but since they had not received the needed maintenance they were in bad shape so you looney tunes libs claim they did not count.

 

YOU ARE THE LIAR
