White House: Obamacare hasn't damaged president's credibility
Washington Examiner ^ | 12/11/2013 | BRIAN HUGHES

Posted on 12/11/2013 1:35:04 PM PST by markomalley

The White House insisted Wednesday that President Obama’s credibility had not been damaged by the botched rollout of Obamacare, despite a series of recent polls showing his diminished standing with the American public.

"I don't think I agree with that conclusion,” White House deputy press secretary Josh Earnest said of the assertion that fewer Americans trust the president because of broken promises over his signature domestic achievement.

However, a new Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll found that 54 percent of respondents disapproved of the president’s job performance, driven mainly by the problem-plagued rollout of Obamacare.

Fifty-eight percent of those surveyed said Obamacare was the issue that most affected their perceptions of the president. In comparison, one-fourth of respondents identified the economy as driving their views of Obama.

White House officials believe they have turned the corner on the technical problems with healthcare.gov and counter that more Americans will support the law as they become familiar with the benefits of the Affordable Care Act.

More problematic for the White House than issues with the website, however, is the president’s broken promise that all Americans could keep their insurance plans under Obamacare.

Since Obama apologized for his unmet pledge, polls have shown a continual downward trend in whether Americans find him trustworthy.

He had no credibility to begin with. So there was nothing to lose.

That never happened. Why must we keep reading this lie in the media?

He never did have andy real credibility.

What he did have was a bunch of blind, deaf and dumb worshipers.

What credibility?
Liars don’t have credibility.

These people are unbelievable. They think that if they say something, then that automatically makes it true.

My father used to call assertions like that of White House mouthpiece Josh Earnest that he 'doesn't agree' with polls showing the America people have lost faith in Obama's credibility as 'whistling past the graveyard'. That is, pretending they're not frightened when they really are - and for good reason. Obama's cloak of immunity is slipping away and his socialist agenda is threatened. Obama's 'signature' legislation - Obamacare - may well sink his presidency.

Hey dork, nobody asked for your conclusion, or your agreement. The polls speak for themselves.

Lack of credibility came when he declared his administration would be the most transparent, then began locking down all of his own records to keep citizens from knowing whence he came.

Most transparent administration in history? Hardly.

As it was pointed out on SNL last week, the President says so, the WH Press Secretary says so, and the Obama Administration says so, so that’s THREE INDEPENDENT SOURCES and that proves it’s true.

In other news, comrade Obama has achieved record new highs in the levels of love and affection of the workers. The Supreme Affordable Health Directive is credited for this outpouring of joy and affection to our great leader!

Pretty sure they’re training the bown shirts and warming up the ACPs for martial law when he has that moment when everbody realizes the emporer is naked. They would already be out and about but they couldn’t get enough idiots to sign on for removing the 2nd amendment.
