You know, the thing about Washington is, nobody ever says anybody else is lying. Even when they’re lying. They’re accused of “saying something erroneous,” being “misleading,” or, if things look really bad, “making a false statement.” It’s a very high bar to call someone a liar. Honestly, I’m hesitant to do it myself, though on Obama’s lies about Obamacare, I got over it.
Because there just ain’t no gettin’ around what went on with the Obamacare con job.
When someone of the stature of a former vice president calls something the sitting president said a lie, you know there was serious mendacity going on.
That’s what we got this morning when former Vice President Dick Cheney appeared on Fox and Friends and said unequivocally that the White House was lying about being able to keep your insurance if you like it.
Steve Doocy: Is it a matter of lying?
Dick Cheney: Yes. They knew it when they did it. That’s what really offends me . . . What they said was “If you like your doctor you can keep your doctor. You can keep your insurance policy. And, it was a lie. It was deliberate. They knew if they told the truth the bill would have never passed.
Note the video below also includes the remarkable statement by former White House Obamacare guru Ezekiel Emanuel Sunday that you can keep your doctor IF YOU’RE WILLING TO PAY MORE, putting on inadvertent display the capacity of the Obama people to sit in their offices and bend the truth beyond recognition.
I mean, how stupid does Emanuel think we are?
