Posted on 10/29/2013 5:09:27 PM PDT by mdittmar
The White House argued Tuesday that President Barack Obama didnt mislead the public when he repeatedly promised Americans If you like your health plan, you will be able to keep your health plan under the Affordable Care Act.
Press secretary Jay Carney said the presidents declaration was still technically true even as almost two million Americans across the country are getting, or are about to get, letters canceling policies purchased on the individual market.
No, the president was clear about a basic fact, Carney said Tuesday when asked directly whether Obama had misled Americans about the impact of his signature domestic achievement. If you had insurance that you liked on the individual market, and you wanted to keep that insurance

Truly, we have never had a more craven WH press secretary than Jay Carney.

One wonders how it must feel to be a paid liar.
Gives smoke and mirrors a bad name.
You CAN keep your insurance until they are required to cancel you by law according to 0bamaCare.
0bama is always right.
For once he’s right. Obama did not mislead; he flat out lied.
ROFL AT RALPHIE PIC!!!
OK, thanks for the "clarification." How does that change anything? Obama knew a fact and stated the opposite. That is a LIE. He is a LIAR.
All depends on what your definition of "plan" is . . .
Obama believes that you don’t know enough to realize that you don’t really like your plan so he has decided for you what would be better.
” There really are people and institutions made up of people, who respond with hatred in the presence of goodness and would destroy the good insofar as it is in their power to do so. They do this not with conscious malice but blindly, lacking awareness of their own evil — indeed, seeking to avoid any such awareness. As has been described of the devil in religious literature, they hate the light and instinctively will do anything to avoid it, including attempting to extinguish it. They will destroy the light in their own children and in all other beings subject to their power.
Evil people hate the light because it reveals themselves to themselves. They hate goodness because it reveals their badness; they hate love because it reveals their laziness. They will destroy the light, the goodness, the love in order to avoid the pain of such self-awareness. My second conclusion, then, is that evil is laziness carried to its ultimate, extraordinary extreme. As I have defined it, love is the antithesis of laziness. Ordinary laziness is a passive failure to love. Some ordinarily lazy people may not lift a finger to extend themselves unless they are compelled to do so. Their being is a manifestation of nonlove; still, they are not evil.
Truly evil people, on the other hand, actively rather than passively avoid extending themselves. They will take any action in their power to protect their own laziness, to preserve the integrity of their sick self. Rather than nurturing others, they will actually destroy others in this cause. If necessary, they will even kill to escape the pain of their own spiritual growth. As the integrity of their sick self is threatened by the spiritual health of those around them, they will seek by all manner of means to crush and demolish the spiritual health that may exist near them.
I define evil, then, as the exercise of political power — that is, the imposition of ones will upon others by overt or covert coercion — in order to avoid extending ones self for the purpose of nurturing spiritual growth. Ordinary laziness is nonlove; evil is antilove.”

What does NOT apply here?
No. He could quite possibly, (comma) intentionally stated punctuation, (comma) knowing his meaning was different. (period)
IOW, an equivocation or, more precisely, and enthymeme.
What we’re talking about here is the 5 percent in the country who currently purchase insurance on the individual market, Carney said. And that market has been like the Wild West. It has been under-regulated, it is the place where Americans have most keenly felt the challenges posed by the insurance system in this country.
The unregulated wild west! Where the elderly could have insurance that didn’t cover maternity care and pediatric! Where teetotalers could have insurance that didn’t cover drug rehab! Oh the humanity!
Right out of the Clinton playbook.
1. deny, deny, deny.
2. After a month, say that it is old news and has already been discussed enough and it's time to move on.
3. If called before a legislative committee just say: " at this point what difference does it make?".
4. When asked how we got here, “I don’t recall.”
Someone lied to him. It was an innocent misrepresentation. He didn’t really know. The important thing was that enough people relied on that material misstatement so that we got what he wanted.
OK, forget that last one. I never said that last sentence.
The president beat Lebron James the other evening, five out of five pickup games. How about that? I hates myself, my Precious.

This half-bright lawyer thinks he’s debating a point in moot court. He’s screwing with peoples lives and their health.
Must see video montage of Obama lying about keeping your health care plan. A lot of times. Just in case you had any doubts about what Obama actually said.
I am so damn sick of the f-—ing lies!!!
People made life choices based on the lies these bastards have told. People are going to lose everything, maybe even their life, based on Obama’s words.
I can’t help but think that our Founding Fathers would have already... well... they would have brought justice and been done with this nonsense.
I worry that we will not be able to vote ourselves out of this nightmare.
Actually, he never mislead me. I knew he was lying the whole time.

Valerie Jarrett is a COMMUNIST from a family of COMMUNISTS
The Communist Party USA continues to back their friend Barack Obama.
How deeply has the Communist Party been involved in advancing Obamas political career-through the Jarrett family, or by other means?
The answers to these questions will have major implications for the future of whats left of the free world
It is now well established that Barack Obama was linked to the Hawaiian Communist Party network through his boyhood/teenage mentor Frank Marshall Davis.
It is also well known that after moving to Chicago, Obama linked up with the local communist networks.
Manning Marable, a leader of the Communist Party offshoot Committees of Correspondence for Democracy&Socialism claims that Obama understands what socialism is. A lot of the people working with him are, indeed, socialists with backgrounds in the Communist Party or as independent Marxists. There are a lot of people like that in Chicago who have worked with him for years...
This leads to two key questions.
A Were the Hawaii and Chicago networks connected?
B Did Obamas connection to Frank Marshall Davis in any way influence his progress up the Chicago political ladder?
If the answer is yes to both, there are significant implications.
Valerie Jarett is a COMMUNIST
Dee Myles is a Chicago activist and chair of the Education Commission of the Communist Party USA. In 2004, after Vernon Jarrets death from cancer she penned this tribute for the Peoples Weekly World of June 5th.
Readers like me can be extremely selective of the journalists we read habitually... We are selective about the journalists to whom we become insatiably addicted, and once hooked we develop a constructive love affair without the romance...
Such was my experience with Vernon Jarrett, an African American journalist in Chicago who died at the age of 86 on May 23. I became a Vernon Jarrett addict, and I am proud of it!
Vernon Jarretts career as a journalist in Chicago began and ended at the Chicago Defender, the African American daily paper. In between, he was the first Black journalist at the Chicago Tribune, and I first began to read his articles during his tenure at the Chicago Sun-Times
Jarretts claim to fame is that he was a partisan of the cause of African Americans in the broad democratic tradition of Paul Robeson and W.E.B. DuBois...
Robeson and DuBois were both Communist Party members. On April 9th, 1998 at Chicagos South Shore Cultural Center, Jarrett hosted a Paul Robeson Citywide Centennial Celebration event, with his old comrade and Party sympathiser Margaret Burroughs and former Communist Party members Studs Terkel and his old friend Oscar C.Brown.
Dee Myles continues;
Jarrett was fanatical about African Americans registering and voting in mass for socially conscious candidates. He championed Harold Washington like a great warrior, and this March, from his hospital bed, wrote an article appealing to Black Chicago to turn out to vote for Barack Obama in the Illinois primaries. Obama astounded everyone with an incredible landslide victory as the progressive, Black candidate for the Democratic Party nomination for the U.S. Senate seat from Illinois. From his sickbed, Vernon Jarrett issued a clarion call, and the people responded.
The Jarrett/Obama conection did not end with Vernon Jarretts death-it moved to a higher level with his famous daughter-in-law Valerie Jarrett.
A former Deputy Corporation Counsel for Finance and Development under Harold Washington, Jarrett continued to work in the mayors office into the 1990s.
In 1991, while Deputy Chief of Staff for Mayor Richard Daley, Jarrett hired Michelle Robinson, then engaged to Barack Obama.
Later Valerie Jarrett ran the finances for Obamas 2004 Senate bid and served as treasurer of Obamas HOPEFUND.
The relationship is more than professional-Jarrett is regarded as one of the Obamas closest friends and advisors.
According to Take Political Action May 24th 2008;
Shes always been the other side of Baracks brain. Thats how an Obama insider described Valerie Jarrett as an Obama campaign aide announced Thursday night the former CTA chief and current Habitat Co. CEO is taking on a larger role to help her close friend win his White House bid.
The development comes as Jarrett, a charter member of Sen. Barack Obamas kitchen cabinet, has been formalizing her portfolio and stepping up the pace within the past few weeks as a top advisor within the campaign.
Though she will be part-time, Jarrett will be one of the most visible and powerful African-Americans in the top rungs of the Obama operation...
Today Valerie Jarrett serves as one of three Senior Advisors to President Obama. She is Assistant to the President for Intergovernmental Affairs and Public Engagement, and Chairs the White House Commission on Women and Girls.
Would there be an Obama/Jarrett relationship today, if there had been no Frank Marshall Davis/Jarrett connection through the Communist Party of post war Chicago?
I can’t imagine what it must be like to have a burned-out hole where your soul used to be, just to maintain a paycheck.
We’ve let the red diaper babies do their thing, namely act in direct opposition to the Constitution.
