On Tuesdays broadcast of Hugh Hewitts radio show, MSNBC Morning Joe host Joe Scarborough hammered President Barack Obama for what he called lies during the sales job for his 2010 health care law.
Scarborough was asked by Hewitt if he had any idea how many people would ultimately lose their health care coverage because of that law. Scarborough replied by saying many more Americans would be impacted by that law than what then-President George W. Bush had said in his 2003 state of the union speech regarding Iraq trying to procure yellow cake uranium from Niger.
Im trying to figure it out right now, Scarborough said. Somebody thought 10 million, 11 million. This morning we were talking about it and you know, you had administration officials coming on saying it wasnt a big deal, but its a huge deal. I mean the president especially and I talked a lot this morning about it I asked Mike Barnicle this morning, How many people actually sift through the words of a state of the union address and allows the president of the United States to say something Lisa Myers found out last night, several members of his administration knew about and the president knew about?
I mean for the president to deliberately mislead millions and millions of Americans in a state of the union address certainly seems to me to have as much impact or more impact on the day-in, day-out lives of millions and millions of Americans than the 16 words George Bush is crucified for saying in the 2003 state of the union address.
Hewitt pointed how some left-leaning pundits have openly admitted Obama lied, to which Scarborough said they didnt have much of a choice.
What else can you do? Scarborough replied. You know, I asked everyone this morning a lot of White House reporters this morning, whats the White Houses spin? I asked Chuck Todd, whats the White Houses spin? He said they dont have one. It is such a deliberate it was such a flagrant lie when youre telling people they can keep their insurance policies if they want to. Now I had a lot of people, a lot of conservatives last night, tweeting, interrupting my Red Sox game, tweeting saying why didnt you guys report about this a couple of years ago?
Well, I think we all knew this was the case, that the president and the administration was misleading the American people, Scarborough continued. What was new with Lisa Myers revelation was last night was it had three or four people that were actually working with the president who said the president knew at the time and let them know at the time that what he was saying was not the truth.
Hewitt went on to ask if he thought Obama knew at the time he wasnt telling the truth about Obamacare.
Of course, Scarborough replied. How could he not?
Careful, Joey. You’d better remember who pays your salary.
It was pretty obvious he was a deliberate, flagrant liar before he was elected as Impostor-In-Chief.
And the “news media” covered for him.
Well of course, *Morning Joe* has to keep up his conservative credibility, ROTFLMAO!
They are the masters of the big lies for 100+ years now.
Joe will walk it back in 3..2..1
I thought you were going back to bed.
Obvious to thinking people. Not to the 43% they didn't care ZERO was going to make US pay not them.
And yet they’re all still tiptoeing around the word “lied”.
Back ain’t hurting anymore, but now ain’t sleepy, I can’ts win.
I hear you.
That's a pretty long count for old Joe :)
Is he shooting for a FNC contract? When is his PMSNBC contract up?
Maybe he thinks he can co-host with Megyn Kelly.
Mooslimes engage in taqiyya.
Comrade obamatollah does both.
