David Axelrod claims Obama line on keeping your coverage was 'substantially' true
Washington Examiner ^ | 11/05/2013 | Charlie Spiering

Posted on 11/05/2013 6:55:41 AM PST by theruleshavechanged

"The fact of the matter is, the president went out and said, I think he said what he believed to be the fact and what was substantially was the fact, because 90, whatever, 95, 96, 97 percent of Americans are in the position where they can keep the insurance they have and they're going to see no changes," Axelrod explained to MSNBC's Chris Hayes on Monday night.

Axelrod dismissed people currently losing their health plans as a "small group" of people who bought "substandard policies" in the individual market.

Axelrod speak:

"small group" of people = mostly self-employed and small business owners who didn't vote for ObaMao anyway. IOW, the enemy.

"substandard policies" = policies which don't offer unlimited coverage for substance abuse, mental health, abortions and all the stuff our people are likely to use.

As laughable as this is... why does anyone now believe them when they say it’s only the individual market with this problem?

What about losing doctors?

What about losing employer coverage [half will.]

And NOBODY will believe them when they answer these questions... if anyone will ask.

Just damn

we need to ask for a revote

Axelrod explained to MSNBC's Chris Hayes on Monday night

To get anywhere, the protests need to start directly against the media organizations. THEY are the ones who are perpetuating the collapse these guys are bringing. Rather than marches on DC, protest should be directed at the media.

A small group of several million people, at least.

The ARROGANCE of these bast- er, jerks! I’ve never seen such a high-handed, condescending administration in my life. Clinton’s flunkies wallowed in gutter politics, but this...this is a first in American politics for me. Wow.

he said it is substantially true because “90, whatever, 95, 96, 97 percent of Americans are in the position where they can keep the insurance they have and they’re going to see no changes,”

HA! That is a big lie too. Is it subtantially true if the number proves to be 75%? or?

and what constitutes NO CHANGES? HA! An increase in premium of 50-100% is NO CHANGE? a doubled deductible is NO CHANGE? etc.

That’s what I’ve been gathering -

the ones losing their insurance are, for the most part, people that Obama wants to punish anyway.

David Axelrod claims Obama line on keeping your coverage was ‘substantially’ true.

open mic on David: “And by ‘substantially’ true I mean, of course, that it was a cynical, calculated baldfaced lie designed to manipulate public opinion until we (the revolutionaries) gain complete totalitarian control. Then you who opposed us will PAY for your lack of vision.”

That’s all they got now...well Obama only lied to about 129 million Americans who within the year will have their plans canceled, incur higher premiums and deductibles, and potentially lose access to their current providers.

Well, it was about as “true” as any other Democrat promise. “Truth” to a Democrat is whatever they can make the public believe and what they can get their partners in the media say.

Duh, it looks like we now know who came up with the money quote: “If you like your doctor, you can keep him.”

Maybe Axelrod also came up with the other money quote: “If you have a business, you didn’t build it.”

Obama’s arrogant LBR, (Lie-Blame-Ridicule), management style is finally obvious for all but the Leftstream Media to see.

Reporter: David, you stated that what Obama said was substantially true. I don’t get it.

David: That’s because you don’t understand the term “substantially true”.

Reporter: I thought I did. It means that Obama’s statements were mostly true or at least weren’t outright lies. Where did I go wrong?

David: Like I said, you don’t understand what “substantially true” actually means. It certainly does not mean that the statement is true. I mean this is politics 101. Substantially True means that it serves our purpose at the time it is stated. It could be a complete lie. Truth is really not the key criteria. How much help the statement contributes to getting Obama elected was and is the only measure of what we choose to call The Truth. Third Term anyone?

Adolf Axelrod is a lying scumbag. The truth, like honor, is unknown in him. He is an ass kissing sychophant of Obama.

Other than that, I hear he’s a great guy.

Is the small group of people, 5% or 15 million folks, going to come and bite them in the butt?

After all, if 15 million people are inconsequential, then 11 million illegal aliens are even less consequential.
