The lies keep coming: Even as President Obama issued a weak-kneed apology for his lie about keeping your health plan, he added a whole bunch of new lies and misstatements.

Update: Meanwhile, even today the White House official website still claims “if you like your insurance plan, your doctor, or both, you will be able to keep them.”

    Well, it is nice to know that the President is sorry that he lied to us and will do everything in his power to make us whole again.

    Wait. He didn’t apologize that he lied, he only said that he was sorry that we misunderstood his clear promise. Period. He is only sorry that he finally got caught in his lie.

    He is laughing directly at us that we fell for his Hitlerean lie, telling a lie so colossal that no one would believe that a world leader “could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously.” If you tell a big lie over and over, people will believe it. Even Goebbels believed this philosophy: “The English follow the principle that when one lies, one should lie big, and stick to it. They keep up their lies, even at the risk of looking ridiculous.” Now that Obama has been caught in his lie, he looks so ridiculous that he had to pretend to apologize.

    And while he laughs at us, he gives us new lies, such as “We’re gonna do everything we can to get [it] fixed.” (Is that the royal “we” or are others going to get involved in whatever he means by “fix?”)

    He continues bragging about his fooley by saying that only a mere 5% of the population are adversely affected (but will end up with “better” insurance, but he does not say for whom the insurance is “better,” but it clearly is not better for those of us who liked our insurance as it is/was). This is yet another big lie. His own administration has written that a much larger portion of the population (93 million, or about 33%) will lose its current insurance, so Obama is risking looking ridiculous again.

    We may be able to determine other lies of his by seeing which other statements he has said over and over again, such as: “I will not rest until …” whatever problem is fixed, then we find him relaxing on the golf course that afternoon.

    Even though we remember the past, Hitlerean/Goebbelean history, it is repeating itself right in our back yard. George Santayana was not entirely correct. There is more to it than just remembering the past.

    Of course you could keep your present plan.

    As long as it qualifies as good enough.

    And as long as you never change anything like loose your job, get married or claim a dependent.
