Giving yet another speech when there’s a website and a failing signature policy to fix, President Barack Obama changed, ever so slightly, his central Obamacare promise. The crowd of human props, party funders, entourage and hangers-on lapped up the president’s new line, which goes something like this.

“Now, if you have or had one of these plans before the Affordable Care Act came into law and you really liked that plan, what we said was you can keep it if it hasn’t changed since the law passed.”

Here’s an extended video of Obama’s remarks.

Everything after the “if” is new. His original line, which he spoke about two dozen times over the course of the past few years, was “If you like your healthcare, you can keep your healthcare. Period.”

No “if” and none of the stuff after that was in the original. The original was a lie — the administration knew that it wasn’t true three years ago but it stayed in Obama’s speeches anyway. Now Obama is lying about that. He’s added some fine print to what was a clear declaration.

That fine print, which negates everything he said previously, goes hand in hand with another story that broke today. CBS reporter Sharyl Attkisson details how the Obama administration granted itself a waiver allowing it to launch Healthcare.gov without adequate security testing.

That puts every user’s personal information at risk. Use Healthcare.gov and you have no guarantee that your information will stay secure.

What if Barack Obama was just a corporate CEO selling a product through bold-faced lies, and it turned out that not only was his sales pitch false, but the product stood to put Americans’ identity information at substantial risk?

If CEO Obama did that, wouldn’t President Obama give speeches attacking him and making him the poster boy for everything that’s wrong with corporate America? Wouldn’t the lying itself be a prosecutable offense?

And by the way...Big Brother is watching. So is Big Nanny.

How are YOU enjoying your Orwellian nightmare my dear countrymen?

For the Weathermen who run this land of ours, Animal Farm and 1984 were not cautionary tales, they were textbooks and primers.

All animals at Animal Farm are equal, except some are more equal than others.

The rules are written on the blackboard. It's just your imagination that they keep changing.

Now, let's all sing the State song.

That's okay. All Obama has to do is get passed the 2014 elections then the Dems can throw him under the bus. Back him, build up everything he says until then. Once passed the 2014 elections, their selection for 2016 (Hillary?) can come out on a platform about how badly Obama screwed up and how She/He will fix all the wrongs and cure all the ills. Obama won't know what hit him. His signature piece, Obamacare will be torn to shreds, everything about it will be criticized, but their next candidate will have all the right moves to fix it. Of course they will be a little short on exactly how they are going to do that but their constituents will eat it up, the MSM will declare it the best thing since peanut butter and here we go again.

so the libs are now telling us that a horrible law, based on lies and deceptions, and based with bribes to senators is something that is not up for debate and change when the facts have come to light.

Seems to me that if a company worked this way, the law suits would be flying, and criminal charges and perp walks would be the news of the day

His second presidency, was won on a lie.. and where do we go to redress that outright fraud?... his sycophantic media viciously called any truth about the ACA a racist lie, fear mongering,.. and time has proven every critic was stone cold right.

It's as if he thinks we don't have recordings of what he already lied about..

That reality is what he says it is, not what we have to live in.. hubris?... or insanity?

and you have to be a special kind of ideologue to believe anything that Obama says at this point... and especially cruel, low rent moron.. or just a twisted dogma spewing thug..

His people are attacking a cancer survivor...

You couldn't predict that once exposed, they would suddenly dump anything like common sense, and just go full on hysterical douche bag..

well.. with Obama, yeah, we could have predicted that..

it's what he is.

Saying it makes it so, common defining characteristic of those on the Left. Can turn Islamic terrorism at Ft. Hood into "workplace violence" with a turn of phrase.

Barack Obama is king of delusion, self- delusion and any other kind.

He knows that the media, the universities, the idiots who have re-elected him will drink anything he will pour.
He's the king and he is never naked.

The left's bubble remains their security blankie,..

When they surround themselves with nothing but party faithful, purge any dissenters from the collective.. when Obama tells them, blue is green, and green is orange.. who's going to doubt the "light bringer"?

when he claimed credit for lowering the seas.. you know he's a few fries short of a happy meal.. and to believe that he's all that he claims, it's almost a religious cult like devotion..

you can't save someone determined to not see what is real... all you can do is wait till they step in front of the inevitable reality bus and it flattens them out.

Obama is used to people in the Democratic party's inner workings and the Dems in the media backing up his claims all his political life, so it's no shock he'd say this here, to a room of fawning acolytes where nobody's around to challenge him.

If Obama says he can make the oceans recede, the sky's full of pink polka-dots and his crap's rainbow colored and smells like lilacs, he's convinced that the spin army is going to get out there and convince all the swing voters that's true, all evidence to the contrary. So why not lie and pretend that YouTube video -- compiled by that evil right-wing outlet, New York Magazine (hey, Rupert once did own it) -- doesn't exist.

It's the "Who are you going to believe, me or your lyin' eyes?" gambit that's worked before. But as long as more and more of those moderate voters and folks in the media keep getting insurance cancellation notices, along with higher premiums and deductibles for their ObamaCare plans, it's not going to work now.
