Now That’s Chutzpah

Ana Marie Cox beggars belief with this one, so here’s a little more just in case you think the headline was misleading:

All those accusations about how “Obama knew there would be cancellations and still lied about it”? Yes, the administration knew. But so did any reporter that read the press releases put out be the Department of Health and Human Services. To be sure, that language favored the interpretation the administration still prefers: that policy holders would have to “transition” to “ACA-compliant” plans. But there was no subterfuge about the fact of change.

Most Americans, I’m sure, still feel they were lied to. Obama’s deception will cost him and the Democratic party goodwill moving forward, and in the short term, he will face even more resistance in moving along any substantial policies. (One can reasonably ask if that’s enough of a price, given that it’s no different than the situation he was facing before.)

Yes, reporters knew. Yes, bloggers like me knew. Yes, readers like Sharp VodkaPundit Readers™ all knew.

So how come this wasn’t front-page stuff in 2010? Why wasn’t the media hectoring Wiggleroom for his lies before his lies became settled law?

Because, Ana Marie Cox, you and this lapdog media you belong to didn’t want the great unwashed getting too upset before the damnable thing built on damnable lies became the law of this once-blessed land.

That’s why.

So why don’t you “stop the faux outrage” over the very real outrage? After all, Ana, I’m not telling you anything you didn’t already know.

She does need to get out of Washington. When someone lies to you and it does not hurt, it is like when a man looks at a pretty women and goes eh. Time to pile the dirt on.

I didn’t know she was still around. Good for her.

She has a lot in common with Obama.

She turned one good blog post into a career.

Just like Obama did with his 2004 Dem National Convention speech.

If she's such an astute observer of American politics, and such a dedicated journalist,perhaps she can explain why she, and others like her, didn't bother to report and weren't suspicious whatsoever of -

1. Passing a 2000 page law in the dead of night, in conference or as a reconciliation with zero republican votes.

and 2. If it's all that wonderful a thing, why are it's implementation targets after elections?

The whole thing stunk on ice from the start and she's telling us that smell was roses all along.

Do they have no common sense or logic?

"Most Americans, I’m sure, still feel they were lied to." Feel?

FEEL? We know it. Why?

Because Obama said the same thing, the same way, again and again. As did his lackeys. And they did it on purpose, because, as I read elsewhere, Most Americans took him a face value and reasoned that as long as they can keep there's helping others is good deal.

And she knows, as well as anyone, that those that read the bill, and knew what would happen were called racists, pretty much, just for pointing that out.

The more they keep kidding themselves, the harder the fall is gonna be.
