Dem Keith Ellison Interprets Obama: 'If You Misunderstood What I Was Trying to Say, I'm Sorry'
NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein

Being a leftist of the Obama ilk, you have to assume that Congressman Keith Ellison thought he was doing the president a favor in offering his interpretation of the president's "if you like your plan, you can keep it" line, as well as his subsequent non-apology apology.

But on today's "This Week with George Stephanopoulos," Ellison wound up putting words in the president's mouth that very literally added insult to injury. Ellison first falsely claimed that Pres. Obama had said "if you like your decent insurance, your insurance that works, then you can keep it." Obama of course never said any such thing. Moreover, according to Ellison, by his apology Obama meant "if you misunderstood what I was trying to say, I'm sorry." So the fault lies not with Obama for having blatantly misled the American people. No, it's those ignorant Americans—too dense to dig the real meaning of the great man's words—who are to blame.

One Muslim covering for another, by telling lies upon lies.

You just can’t trust a Muslim. They’re always lying and stabbing people in the back. Obama lied. There was no “misunderstanding” about it. Barack HUSSEIN Obama lied to get his sorry, lying ass reelected. However, he didn’t fool the informed and intelligent half of the country who didn’t vote for him.

"If you like your health care plan, you can keep your health care plan. Period. If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor. Period."

I can see how that statement would be subject to interpretation, Keith.

</sarcasm>

Not all of us. He represents an area in Minneapolis full of libs and muzzys. I doubt he’d win a state wide election.

That's right, it's OUR fault WE misunderstood the lie.

"C'mon, people, you know me! You know how I work. You know the hidden message. Don't play stupid and blame me for bad communication. I don't want to have to explain everything to you. That's too much work."

Quite possibly Keith Ellison’s is the most laughably moronic defense of Obama’s lying to date.

I gotta give Ellison some props here.

He's Reid-level Evil, but at least he's not Pelosi-level Crazy.

Ellison is little Squealer with his paint pot, revising the text his primary holds out before us, changing the deal to "enable" (ugly word) his Dear Leader.

I'm still waiting for them to explain, patiently for us children of a lesser god, that white people are existentially inferior to People of Color (praise be upon them), men one-down to women, Americans two-down to every foreigner, and that OldThinkers of all pigmentations need to be reeducated in a 24-hour-a-day "immersive" experience that will be facilitated in cheerful, open-air camps built expressly for the reeducation experience. Oh, and four legs good, two legs better.

The explanation is “You only think I lied, because you’re stupid”.

The AFT and the NEA(teacher's union, not the artsy-fartsy a-holes who fund Crucifixes dropped in urine with our tax $$$, but they're all one and the same anyways) are fighting tooth and nail to prevent passage of a bill barring convicted sex offenders from working in schools. Keith Ellison, the ONE AND ONLY MOOSLIME in the house, supports the teachers unions on this. What does this tell us?

Let’s interpret Obama - I really am not sorry for destroying the USA. It was part of the plan. In 2015, 90% part of the USA will not be employed. When I was at Columbia University I studied husband and wife team Cloward and Pivens desire to destroy America. I also studied abroad through Columbia University’s Extended Degree program - in the Soviet Union, China and Cuba. This is why no one saw me at Columbia. See, I as Obama have many people whom will support me in my desire to end the USA. So you suckers in the Midwest get ready for America to implode.

He lied to get re-elected. But the republicans let him get away with it. Remember, Obama’s a good guy but he shouldn’t be president.

And, the voters were stupid enough to believe him. And they’ll vote for him again if they get the chance.
