Skip to comments.Pathetic Dreamer: Obama’s Doublespeak Are Lies Meant to Fool Himself

The power of holding two contradictory beliefs in ones mind simultaneously, and accepting both of them, to tell deliberate lies while genuinely believing in them, to forget any fact that has become inconvenient, and then, when it becomes necessary again, to draw it back from oblivion for just as long as it is needed, to deny the existence of objective reality and all the while to take account of the reality which one deniesall this is indispensably necessary. Even in using the word doublethink it is necessary to exercise doublethink. For by using the word one admits that one is tampering with reality; by a fresh act of doublethink one erases this knowledge; and so on indefinitely, with the lie always one leap ahead of the truth.
In his brilliant dystopian novel, 1984, George Orwell perfectly and presciently described the kind of doublethink and doublespeak we have now come to expect of our modern politicians:
I dont know about you, but I am sick of being jerked around by this administration. I feel like I have been whipsawed this past week and my head is spinning.Things were bad enough with the disastrous Obamacare rollout and the millions being thrown off of their health insurance plans.We were all trying to calm the rocking boat, sit down and try to make some plan for the future, whatever that might be, when wham!...we were hit smack in the face with doublespeak and more chaos from Barack Obama.
To save his Democrat party members that were being skewered by their constituents over this disaster, Obama turned the entire Obamacare law, insurance companies and American people on their heads once again! In an abrupt oops, sorry, I didnt mean to say that I didnt mean what I said the first time speech, he double talked his way through a press conference and basically told everyone that what he had said before; if you like your health plan, you can keep your health plan period was actually what was going to happen now.If your policy had been cancelled, it was magically going to be reinstated just like nothing had ever happened.It was all a bad dream.
Are you still with me?
No one was able to figure out how he was going to accomplish this feat of magic, but he hoped that by throwing this out there the American people would be calmed and appeased, therefore taking the vulnerable Dems in the 2014 elections out of the frying pan.Really?Weve seen this movie before and we know the story.This whole thing was a political stunt and everyone; even the low information voters know it.
There is no way that the insurance companies can do this.Not only have they spent the last three and a half years figuring out this transition, sending out notices and getting ready for the millions of new people that they have to insure, but they are still trying to keep from being demonized and taking the blame for all of this!
Obama made one thing clear in his double talk speech; if the insurance companies wont reinstate your plans for another year, dont blame Obamacare.Once again the blame is not on him, he had nothing to do with this.Realistically the insurance companies cant reinstate these policies.It would be an administrative nightmare for one, and it would be against the law for another. The premiums would necessarily skyrocket so your old plan wouldnt be your old plan anyway.Plus, the jury is still out on whether or not Obama can even do this according to the Constitution!
It was a quick political fix.One more game that this administration has played with the American people and also the insurance companies that thought they were in the cat-bird seat with Obamacare.
Dont cry for the insurance companies though.With the rushed meeting held on Friday with insurance CEOs, Im sure Obamas doublespeak assured them that if they take a significant hit from this, he will make sure that they get bailed out.We the taxpayers will be on the hook once again for the reckless decisions being made and the Presidents fat cat cronies will benefit.Same storydifferent day.
My prediction is that this thing will implode anyway.That was the plan from the start and it is on the trajectory toward disaster.Obama just has to keep jerking us around and keep up the game playing and double talk until after the 2014 elections.If he wins the House back for the Dems he can throw out Obamacare and push a simpler law through, thus fulfilling the 100 year liberal dream of socialized medicine.
Morgan Brittany may have over-analyzed this. I think Barry is simply a damned congenital, pathological liar.
You’re right (I didn’t even need to think about it ;’)
How well we deserve this curse God has given us, through the ILLEGAL ALIEN IN CHIEF, the FASCIST Obama.
Barack Hussein Obama II IS a Muslim.
His actions prove it.
To believe Barack Hussein Obama II, when he claims to be a Christian, is to trust Satan.
Muslims are well know for lying about their faith.
The problem for the dims is that it collapsed in hours.....not months.
I think the “he does this to fool himself” concept explains a lot here.
Of course, I’m constitutionally adapted to agree with pretty much anything that Morgan Brittany might choose to say.
Me too. His lies are not to fool himself. He knows he has enough funds and that the Government will always look out for an ex-president. His lies are to fool the idiots who believe in him.
He does not give a good damn for anyone but Barrack Hussein Obama.
Indeed. It is the simple communist government algorithm: get liberals to lodge a complaint against the Tparty for the mess they put themselves in with a government lying to them. Just like they do in divorce courts attacking the bread earner with the coaching of children and spouses against him or her.
We saw this with Jews blaming others for running away from cattle cars, to Marx/Lenin attacking capitalists with the help of pseudo victim useful idiots in typical salem witch trial.
Government ownership and custodies over certain creeds (gays) who hurt themselves and then blame christians or conservatives in order to extort hostage ransom is disgusting.
These people are terrorists... finding their little Alinskies or rotten Meghan lesbian McCain cute.
I am sick of these people.
One thing he does give a damn about is his fun in raping black america with impunity and making them blame whitie.. he enjoys that for sure.
Just a futile attempt to assign benevolent motives to a malicious socialist.
Yes, I think they actually expected it to take a few years so they could milk it and spin it in their favor more. They may have planned for it to collapse but this instantaneous implosion was not what they had in mind.
That last pic with Obama morphing into the devil scared the bejeezus out of me.
It’s a pity that Obama doesn’t scare the bejeezus out of more people.
The ‘constitutional scholar’ has once more proven himself to be anything but. He’s a moron. He believes himself to be a king and not an elected official. He’s an arrogant buffoon.
I'm not sure about the whole pathological liar thing. The whole party gave the same story. It goes beyond individual pathology, so she may be on to something. "Groupthink" was another version of "Doublethink" and was used to explain a lot of bad decisions and deceptions in the Vietnam era.
FWIW: Straightening out "pathological liar," "compulsive liar," "chronic liar," and "habitual liar" is something somebody ought to do. Some online sources claim they're all the same thing. Some sources claim there are differences.
Thanks Kaslin. Uh, ping, though I doubt it.
Hitler’s health insurance is cancelled
This is the funniest bunch of Obama clips without his teleprompter I’ve ever seen. Too bad we won’t see it in the MSM. It should go viral. Don’t miss it.
Yowza. Put her in the pantheon of beautiful conservative women.
It’s interesting that George Orwell never included a dictatorial healthcare program like ObamaCare in ‘’1984.’’
People will put up with many types of tyranny before rebelling. Even Americans seem perfectly satisfied to live with an all-seeing Big Brother watching them in the form of the NSA.
However, healthcare is different. In fact, all sudden negative changes produce anger. Doubling people’s already high healthcare premiums all at once has hurt ObamaCare, maybe fatally. Having to wait months for operations, a feature of all socialized medicine, will make ObamaCare more and more hated the longer it endures, and rebellion will come, and then deliverance. Maybe next November.
Sadly for the Democrats, Saul Alinsky failed to warn future revolutionaries like Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama that socialized medicine was a bridge too far. The Clintons figured that out for themselves when they put HillaryCare to rest. But Obama can’t seem to get it, and maybe he won’t in time to save the Democratic party.
