Four years ago Jim Geraghty said that all of Barack Obama’s statements come with an expiration date. Almost three years ago I told you (some might say less charitably) that you have to be an idiot to believe anything Barack Obama says. Then I gave you more proof of why you’re an idiot to believe anything Obama says. A few days ago I provided an Obama Bullsh*t Decoder. Today I offer you DrJohn’s Law:
Whatever Obama says is a lie. The opposite is the truth. That includes the entire incompetent administration because he owns everything they do and has fired exactly no one for anything. To wit:
White House denies promising 7 million Obamacare signups: ‘That was never our target number’
I immediately know, without even reading, that this is a lie. And it is.
White House health care adviser Phil Schiliro denied that the Obama administration ever set Obamacare enrollment goals of 7 million consumers, saying Tuesday it “was never our target number.”
Schiliro spoke with MSNBC’s Kristen Welker about the stumbling health care law’s prospects moving forward. Current numbers show roughly 2 million signups for Obamacare at the end of December — 1 million short of what the White House projected months ago. Previous administration estimates counted on at least 7 million enrollees by the March 31 deadline, with concerns that government health exchanges could function poorly — or even break down — if a smaller number signed up.
The conversation went like this:
WELKER: Are you confident that you’re going to be able to meet your target of getting 7 million people by the end of March? And is that still your target number?
SCHILIRO: Well, that was never our target number. That was a target that was put out by the Congressional Budget Office and has become the accepted number. But there’s no –
WELKER: Well Kathleen Sebelius has said 7 million people, that that’s the goal.
SCHILIRO: But that was because it came from the Congressional Budget Office and it had become an accepted number. There’s no magic to the 7 million. What there is magic to is that in the month of December, a million Americans signed up for insurance. Not because they had to. They didn’t face a penalty if they didn’t. They signed up because they wanted insurance on Jan. 1.
But, but, but….
Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius did, of course, set a goal of 7 million sign ups back in June, calling it a “realistic target.” The White House has since backtracked: In November, spokesman Dan Pfeiffer lowered the bar to simply “as many people as possible.” But Tuesday marks the first time an administration official outright denied issuing the target in the first place.
But heck, they know they can lie to MSNBC. There’s not enough water on Earth that they can’t carry for Obama. It was a lie. Whether it was healing the Earth, stopping the oceans from rising, raising the dead or fixing the economy in three years, Obama is a full of sh*t. There is simply no other way to put it. And I for one am tired of it.
Watching that still makes my stomach burn. It’s that stupid. It’s that egomaniacal. The guy is loaded with charisma but nothing beyond that. He is accustomed to being dictatorial and has sown only the seeds of division. The people who voted for Obama would have voted for Hitler. He had charisma too. He was inspiring too. He made big promises. He was full of sh*t too.
I know some readers will get bent out of shape over this comparison, but this is about style and they absolutely do have similar characteristics. Both were and are grandiose bloviating egomaniacs, both divided their countries, both promised pie in the sky and both depicted their fellow citizens as enemies and both asked others to take action against those enemies. Remember Obama the Greek God?
That reminds me of this:
I knew full well back in 2008 that Obama was full of sh*t, as did a lot of people. Electing him was stupid, re-electing him was criminal. That was akin to the second marriage- the triumph of hope over experience. He had accomplished nothing other than get elected to offices. Nothing. The only thing he has accomplished is the initiation of Obamacare, which is more about controlling your life and wealth redistribution than it is about healthcare. An administration that refused to disavow the assertions by its underlings that Mitt Romney was a liar, tax cheat, felon and murderer is hopelessly corrupt. Wait- let me remind you:
Obama deputy campaign manager Stephanie Cutter suggested that Mitt Romney may be a criminal on a conference call with reporters this morning about a Boston Globe report that shows that Romney stayed at Bain Capital three years past when he said he’d left.
Cutter said that there were two ways to interpret the story. The first: Mitt Romney was “misrepresenting his position” at Bain to the Securities and Exchange Commission, “which is a felony.”
And Obama? What did he have to say?
“We point out sharp differences between the candidates, but we don’t go out of bounds,”
Another lie, or course. It was so far out of bounds that it was evil.
Our friend dan from squirell hill has assembled a list of over 500 Obama lies and that’s probably still not all of them as pretty much everything that comes out of Obama’s mouth is a lie. As already mentioned, Obama is great at promising pie in the sky but he can’t build you a ladder tall enough to get it. Thing is, he knows it. He knows he’s lying and he knows how stupid his base is. He knows it’s why poor people keep voting for democrats despite the fact that all they’ve done is create more poor people. Hope over experience.
And so the lying continues. DrJohn’s Law.
Happy New Year!
