Obama was unaware that he said “If you like your healthcare plan, you can keep it.” (sarc)

It was reported today by MSNBC that President Obama was unaware that he had ever said to anyone the words “If you like your healthcare plan, you can keep it.” As is commonly known, the details of policies put in place by various departments of the Administration are considered beneath the purview of the office of the presidency. The President is above all that and, as Chris Matthews points out, he can hardly be expected to remember such minutiae such as who gave the order to stand down at Benghazi, which is thousands of miles away, or who ordered the IRS to harass certain Tea Party members, let alone members of other terrorist groups, or even what was happening in Fast & Furious down in Mexico. That’s somebody else’s country, said Matthews, and the President just wasn’t personally aware. Besides, he was on the golf course at the time . . . every time. Moreover, we have his word for it, along with his adorably smudged and erased golf game scorecards which will, no doubt, make their way into his presidential library someday. There were only 4,673 events between 2008 and 2012 where he uttered this healthcare plan remark, and his failure to remember them is completely understandable in light of the fact, as Rachel Maddow points out, that he did not use precisely the same words at 378 of those events, but some variation thereof. So, there was some confusion in his mind, and that is completely understandable. He’s a busy man. It is also true that he was reading from texts prepared by White House aides and, therefore, can hardly be held responsible for them. His Secretary of HHS, Kathleen Sebelius, having recently returned from a funeral in Kansas, where a house tragically fell on her sister, was at a loss to explain the President’s previous words, but suggested that they were glitches taken out of context and mis-characterized. He could hardly have known that 15 million people would lose their health insurance and can hardly be held responsible, any more than Ms. Sebelius can be held responsible for her underlings who managed the recently troubled website at the heart of the Unaffordable Care Act. Au contaire! And all things being equal, what is known for certain is that the president simply was not made aware of the trouble at HHS, much less his of own words about healthcare, which were uttered in the rush and confusion of the 2012 campaign which was in effect in 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, and 2013. But, in the meantime, he has invited all Republicans to the White House in a show of bipartisanship. Representative Joe Wilson of South Carolina announced that he would not be able to attend.

Obama was unaware that he said “If you like your healthcare plan, you can keep it.”

The first time he heard about that was last night on Fox News like the rest of us!

How can you tell that Obama’s lying? He immediately follows all of his made up ‘facts’ with the statement: “You can’t make this stuff up!”

Obama repeatedly misspoke; He intended to say “If I like your health plan you can keep it.” (sarc)

He was unaware he’d ever said it until it was reported on the news.

Very good!!!! I particularly like the “money in motion” line. One needs to “follow the money” with this administration. There are dozens of examples of major money mysteriously disappearing.

Of course she does. Milburn Stone always ran a cash or barter concierge practice.

Oh, I get it. OK. Fred was his brother, who played the Scarecrow in the early stage production of the Wizard of Oz.

Wow, never heard of him. Did some searching and found he was Milburn's uncle (you were close) and he was born in Longmont, CO (about 35 miles from me) in 1873 in a log cabin. Ran away at age 11. (that probably reduced the population of Longmont by a third at that time)
