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 MSNBCs Kristen Welker about the stumbling health care laws 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 youre 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 theres no
WELKER: Well Kathleen Sebelius has said 7 million people, that thats the goal.
SCHILIRO: But that was because it came from the Congressional Budget Office and it had become an accepted number. Theres 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 didnt face a penalty if they didnt. 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:

A corollary to this is that Obama is always doing the exact opposite of what he says he’s doing.
Been trying to find a large version of that famous "Greek Columns Event" Obama Photo, for years. Anybody have a clue what the source is? Or the name/date of the event?
