As Twitchy reported earlier, even lapdog Rick Klein has admitted that President Obama’s promise of keeping your health care plan if you like it was “never possible to keep.” So it was strange to hear the president talk about “impossible promises” in his 10-minute appearance in the White House briefing room this afternoon.
Those impossible promises, though, were promises made by Republicans to the “wacko birds” that they could stop the flaming train wreck that is the Affordable Care Act. As as we’ve heard said before about Obamacare, you can’t stop it. Promise or threat? You decide.
The president really should look for work in a movie theater, because he’s a master of projection. You see, the far-right wing of the GOP is trying to save face over an impossible promise they made to their base. We’re not sure who it was who promised to repeal Obamacare, though, although some like Sen. Ted Cruz vowed to speak against it until he couldn’t stand anymore. Now it’s time for the president to come through on those promises of lower premiums and freedom to keep your health care plan (if it isn’t canceled, that is).
Yes, yes he is. Obamacare is the one red line the president has drawn that he’s actually serious about. That and slowing the rise of the oceans.
