Skip to comments.Mika Brzezinski Literally Hits Herself in the Face After Watching Obamacare Promises Montage
Posted on 11/04/2013 1:20:58 PM PST by Tailgunner Joe
Mika Brzezinski channeled the frustration of many liberals this morning when she gave what has to be the best reaction yet to New York Magazines supercut of President Obama telling Americans that if they like their current health care plan they can keep it.
Joe Scarborough set up the clip, in which the president says repeatedly over the course of four years that under the Affordable Care Act people who already have health insurance and want to keep their plans will be able to. As we have learned over the last few weeks, insurance companies have been terminating plans that dont measure up to the Obamacare standards. Whether this development is the fault of the Obama Administration or the insurance industry is up for debate, but the reality is that Obamas definitive statement is proving to be false.
Heres how Brzezinski reacted once the montage ended, much to surprise of her co-host and guests:
Even Chris Matthews couldnt defend the presidents promises about keeping health care plans, but later in the segment Ezekiel Emanuel argued that it was the insurance companies, not President Obama who should take the blame for the contradiction. The law did not kick anyone off their plan, the law did not say you have to cancel those plans, he said. Whos making that change? The insurance companies.
“You’ll like this ‘Mika hitting herself’ gif ....” ping.
When New Yorkers are turning on O -— you know that the thing is blowing up big time.
Just as we predicted. For years.
Legalese for lying to get the another party to act in a way beneficial to the liar.
Notice how the liberal media are only concerned about the “optics” of him lying. Not concerned about the fact that they continually lied to the American people in order to get it barely passed by a pure partisan vote.
Imagine at the time if they would have told the American people if you like what you currently, you CAN’T keep it.
O’s statement will go down in history along side Klintoon’s “I did not have sex with that woman” and Papa Bush’s “Read my lips, no new taxes”.
If the Republicans had any sense, which they don’t, they would run this as an ad. Just the Big One making his false promises. No commentary. Nothing else. Just the montage.
Maybe that will convince a few million people that they elected a big mistake in 2008 and 2012.
And “I’m not a crook”
gee...not a lot of people of color in that clip (snark)
Actually, no it's not. It's just another lie.
Because of some of the laws in the o care, the insurance companies had to drop their clients or raise their rates to a point their clients couldn’t afford. Are there any truth
tellers in the liberal media?
Slithering weasels trying to not be held accountable or culpable to Obamacare in which they forced on America day after day after day for the last 5 years.
The media leftists and Obama-lovers should be smacking themselves
The hits are going to keep on coming, so she might as well get used to them and start reporting all of them.
No way Obamacare ever gets passed without that lie!
My favorite. And every time that deranged nitwit Pelosi speaks, I envision that scene.
If they were actually honest, they’d never see the halls of power - ever, but...
if they were honest in this case, they’d actually state what some of their defenders are stating -
“We know better than you do what kind of insurance you need, so just obey us.”
Now, I use that with my children, but they’re all... well, CHILDREN. And they’re MY children, so I have a duty to shepherd them that way.
The American people are NOT children.
Obamacare needed good little sheeple everywhere in order to do anything close to what it was formulated to do.
Now that said sheeple are acting more like herds of cats, Obama is busy blaming people for not being sheeple.
Must be getting real difficult for some Democrats to keep defending the lies.
As it should be.
Sometimes I kick myself for not learning more about editing video and audio. The perfect opportunity for a killer satire in Baraq's own words.
He must have said, "If you like your health insurance, you can keep your health insurance. Period," or variants of it on video, between 20 and 40 times in different places at different events.
He has also, in his speeches and sermons, used the words "I" at least 83,629 times, so the material is there.
Put together every available video into one continuous video, and modify the audio so each one says,
e.g... "If I like your health Plan, you can keep your health plan. Period! No one can take it away from you!"
The collection would last between 1 and 2 minutes, and, played over and over 24/7, it would be devastating.
An added laugh soundtrack, or perhaps rap music in the background, would make for a classic.
ooh I like that
ALL the major insurance companies should SUE THE GOVERNMENT
“I’m really good at killing people.” Is that one of the montage of comments Obama said about his ACA?
Too bad she didn’t use a full copy of the ACA instead.
It always “amazes” leftists when people act in rational response to leftist directives that would cause harm to the people.
“You were supposed to stand still and let us shoot you!”
The talking point is “It’s the insurance companies fault that everyone who loses their insurance can now buy better insurance, even those with pre-existing conditions.” Basically, it’s the insurance companies’ fault but it’s good anyway. And not one republican is smart enough to come up with a “come back”.
The public should sue to have the 2012 election results voided since he got his winning majority of votes by fraud in the inducement.
You might have to fight Laz if you want to hit it first...
That was a very funny movie, I enjoy it every time I get to see it.
Another example of sheepie. Remember all the predictions there would be massive riots if the food stamp cuts occurred. I am still waiting and the noise of the crickets is deafening. I am beginning to think these leeches are so lazy about working, they are also too lazy to protest or care about the cuts.
This incident could easily have provided 100% satisfaction if Scarborough had replaced her papers with a small sledge or maul at the correct moment.
“When New Yorkers are turning on O”
I don’t think their turning om ol “0”. I think they are
all in a twitter because of their inability to spin
this for Obama. Their brains are overloading. Even Crissy
starts to babble and froth at the end of the clip.
No doubt some of them are exasperated.
Can’t figure out how to spin the latest disaster from O.
You couldn’t be more wrong. When your enemy is getting torn up by his own supporters it is time to shut the hell up and let it happen.
It’s like Prohibition. Nobody said you had to “destroy” all that wine and beer your restaurant sells. You just can’t sell it or get caught having it anymore.
The Republicans may not want Obamacare to go away. The Rinos, at least, want it as an issue. They want to promise to fix it, to make it run more efficiently. Probably they are getting money from insurance companies to take this stance: criticize, use it as an election issue but do not destroy it.
I’ll trade her the papers for a nice piece of rebar.
The American people are NOT children.
Tut, tut. Don't you realize, that's how statists view you and me? Dr. Sowell wrote about it in this excellent book:
You may be right about the RINOs wanting to keep Obamacare as a "wedge issue".
But ask yourself, "What's in Obamacare for the insurance companies?" They know they are just one House Democratic majority away from single-payer -- and being out of business.
Sure, they enjoy all the business under Obamacare. But they had all the business before. No company wants to cancel current customers. Sure, they'll get subsidy payments from the government. But they have to operate on a much thinner margin than they did before.
I can't think of a single reason why the insurance industry would want to keep Obamacare and wouldn't be delighted with a return to the status quo ante.

It's like the federal income tax, which anyone in government will be glad to tell you is "entirely voluntary."

Mika Suggests Obama ‘Too Smart’ For The Job

Yep, one of his early works. Read it a long time ago.
It was funny - I read “Conflict of Visions” way back when as well, and just saw it through political eyes. Then I became renewed somewhere along the line, and read it again with spiritual eyes. I came away with a new understanding of his concepts the second time.
He’s really got a good grip on the truth of the human condition.
Ha! I saw the show and was disappointed she didn’t use a frying pan.
