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?

So now he lies about his repeated lie and makes his Party lie for him too. Evil.

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
