Obama Unaware He Said "If you like your health plan you can keep it." Sarc. (revised)
October 29, 2013 | MrChips

Posted on 10/29/2013 8:02:53 AM PDT by MrChips

It was reported today by the intrepid investigative team at 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," said Chris Matthews, who points out that the president of the United States can hardly be expected to remember such details. "That," concurred Lawrence O'Donnell, "would be like asking him to remember 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 they both agreed that the President just wasn’t personally aware. Besides, they said, he was on the golf course at the time . . . every time. "Moreover, we have his word for it," agreed Keith Olbermann, from his new position at another network where he is a sports reporter, "And we also have his adorably smudged and erased golf game scorecards," beamed Olbermann, "which will, no doubt, make their way into his presidential library someday." Fact diggers for MSNBC pointed out that 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 aggressively points out, that "he did not use precisely the same words at 378 of those events, but some variation thereof, and 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 said others with the network, and, therefore, the President 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 about the health plan, 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," said Ms. Sebelius, "any more than I can be held responsible for my underlings who are still managing the recently troublesome website at the heart of the Unaffordable Care Act." Her slip of the tongue was "precious," said Chris Matthews, who immediately corrected it after the interview. All things being equal, says the investigative journalists at MSNBC, what is known for certain is that the president simply was not made aware of the trouble at HHS, much less made aware 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. And in the spirit of bipartisanship, the President has invited all Republicans to the White House for a meeting to clarify what he said, or what they think he might have said when he was unaware that he said it. Representative Joe Wilson of South Carolina announced that he would not be able to attend.

Proving to a bunch of conservatives that Obama lies is like a graduate course in astrophysics teaching that the sun rises in the East every morning.

We already know. Those who don’t care, will never be swayed by a demonstration of his mendacity.

The issue is, how do we make our opponents care about a president lying to sell socialism, when it is socialism that they all want?

For all we know, they would approve of the lies to get what they want.

Obama is unaware of having been unaware of having been unaware of.....

And on and on and on, to infinity.

On every major issue and scandal.

He not only didn’t know, but now that he knows, he doesn’t know anything about not having known about not having known...

Like the fake headline posted earlier said “Obama is unaware he’s actually the President, claims he read about it in the newspaper like everyone else”.

Well it depends on what the definition of “keep” is.

Keep can be defined as a fotified tower in England.

So when The One said “If you like your health plan you can keep it” what he meant is you could place your Obamacare insurance papers in a fortified keep.

There ARE some Americans who are very angry at Obama for lying to them about this.

There are others who are rejoicing that Obama lied and got away with it so far...

If Obama destroyed America, as he is in process of doing, these type of people would dance on America’s grave.

Even if it led to their own destruction as well.

It is Satanically EVIL.

God said in Holy Writ: “All who hate me, love death”.

Glen Beck was asking who's really in charge of the government. 0boober knew NOTHING about Fast & Furious, Benghazi, NSA spying on citizens (he heard it on the news) , NSA spying on our allies, now millions losing their insurance thru 0bamacare.

Seriously other than golf, vacations, and flying on the jet for fund raisers, what does the community organizer in lieu of a president know about anything, and why are we still paying him?

He's no more than a figurehead by his own admission!!!!

The world view of Obama:

Always a victim, and never a leader.

Leaders are thrown out, but victims will suffer for ever.

If it’s not on his teleprompter, he doesn’t know about it.

He is the pure solipsist; he doesn’t even believe the objective evidence of his own voice. Truth is what he thinks it is.

obama and satan cannot destroy America as long as some of us love GOD and HIS SON JESUS and keep the ember of Freedom and Liberty burning in our hearts and minds. Millions will stand and fight tyranny so we may go through horrible times but we will endure because the FATHER will endure! Our way of life was a direct gift from GOD and he will give to us that which we need to defend it.

Yes, he found out that he said that the same time as the American people.

Nobody told him. So its not his fault.
