But It’s for Your Own Good

Behind the scenes of the Professor’s infamous promise:

At one point, aides discussed whether Mr. Obama might use more in-depth discussions, such as media interviews, to explain the nuances of the succinct line in his stump speeches, a former aide said. Officials worried, though, that delving into details such as the small number of people who might lose insurance could be confusing and would clutter the president’s message.

“You try to talk about health care in broad, intelligible points that cut through, and you inevitably lose some accuracy when you do that,” the former official said.

The former official added that in the midst of a hard-fought political debate “if you like your plan, you can probably keep it” isn’t a salable point.

So they chose to lie.

Let’s be perfectly clear. They knew millions would lose their coverage. HHS deliberately wrote the regulations to cancel the existing plans of as many millions as was possible under the law. So the Professor wasn’t being inaccurate. He wasn’t being misleading. He was lying, with a cool and repetitious calm.

Wiggleroom is, to a coin a phrase, a lying liar who lies.

Megyn Kelley has been skewering the administration on this. Her case has been irrefutable, and it has a populist appeal. Very effective.

Oh, come on, Mr. Green! That's as preposterous as claiming that, during a government shutdown, President Obama would want Americans inconvenienced as much as possible, even to the point of posting guards around open-air national sites!

Oh, wait...

The disastrous and depressing fact is that the American media is desperately attempting to medicate the American people into apathy concerning their plight. Leftists have already started blaming the GOP for the failure and brow beating people who complain. Also, I would guess that the next step is for the media to try and build a determination to fix the Obamacare disaster rather than get rid of it.

Where does the media think that their relentless cheerleading will end up? Do they know? Do they care?
