President Obama Encourages Democrats to Defend Obamacare: 'I Do Not Think We Should Apologize'
Breitbart ^ | 17 Apr 2014 | Charlie Spiering

Posted on 04/18/2014 7:38:16 AM PDT by Cheerio

President Obama proudly promoted record Obamacare signup numbers Thursday, boldly calling for Democrats to defend the law.

"I think that Democrats should forcefully defend and be proud of the fact that millions of people like the woman I just described, who I saw in Pennsylvania yesterday, we are helping because of something we did," Obama said. "I do not think we should apologize for it. I don't think we should be defensive about it."

When questioned by reporters, Obama dismissed the idea that the law was deeply unpopular.

Ubama is True Believer. Reality is irrelevant to the True Believer.

I do not think we should apologize...

I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

The scary thing is...he’s RIGHT. The entire media complex, with celebrity assistance, will promote the “runaway success” of ObamaCare. Couple this with Boehner “hell-bent” to pass amnesty, and this November could be a disaster. WAY too much arrogance on our side.

Does he mention that most of those signed up with obamarcare already had insurance. These aren’t people that now have insurance for the first time in their lives.

Anything goes here in the Kingdom of Lies.

Except the truth.

The truth drives “progressives” (even their name is a lie) crazy.

How do you defend policies that lead to thousands dying prematurely because of problems that were not addressed in a timely manner?

Because the cumulative effect of the denial of care to hundreds of thousands of patients under Obamacare is going to vastly dwarf the sources of early death from almost every other source short of wholesale genocide. The death count may one day be as high as the wrongful early deaths that may be attributed to late-term abortion.

“Saving lives” is going to become a meaningless concept, unavailable to the vast majority of residents of that territory once known as “the United States of America”.

And that is before the Independent Payment Advisory Board, or IPAB, a rationing body equivalent to a death panel, is fully operational.

Obama still hasn’t read it, but he will defend Obamacare right down to the last steaming pile of crap it creates.

If he tries it, he’ll be in for a bigger burning. “If you like your XYZ, you can keep your XYZ” is still making all but the most hardcore lefty Dems extremely wary.

Yea, don't to the one thing that could save your party. Or the country.
That's out of the question. Just keep blaming Republicans.

I bet e-Bay and Amazon wish they could count "shopping carts" as sales and profits also but alas those pesky auditors won't have any of it.

But with the clown admin every time he opens his mouth out comes another one.

Lips moving out comes lies

Liberals CANNOT STAND THE TRUTH, and they will never ever let it get in the way of their way or the highway. TRUTH to a LIBERAL is irrelevant - it is all about their intentions and one must never try and measure the real outcome of those good intentions.

It’s a republican commercial that should be run across the country.

“Obama ”forced” you out of your health care plans and into Obamacare. And if you don’t comply, the IRS will come after you. And Obama claims Obamacare is a success. “
