SC Congressman Trey Gowdy was a guest on the Kelly File tonight to discuss the latest ObamaCare BS the Regime is peddling. At issue were the new documents released by the House Oversight and Reform Committee that revealed that while Obama was encouraging Americans to call 1-800-FuckYo or mail in applications to sign up for ObamaCare, the Regime knew all the applications would end up in the same queue. “The president already has a Nobel Prize for peace, I think he’s shooting for one for fiction, Gowdy quipped. “To send to people to the mail instead of the website when you know everyone is going in the same queue — it’s a facade — it’s a Potemkin Village that is calculated to mislead folks and create this appearance that everything is going swimmingly when you know otherwise.” He also commented on the president’s infamous healthcare promise which has now been slightly altered.
Obama altered his health care promise on Monday evening in a speech to about 200 of his campaign supporters and health care activists, claiming “what we said was” you can keep your health care plan “if it hasn’t changed since the law’s passed.”
“I could have sworn he said ‘period’ after that statement and now he has added a rather lengthy footnote”, Gowdy noted dryly. “Instead of saying we made a mistake – we made an intentional misstatement, we need you to forgive us, the response is to evade – to answer questions falsely, and then worst of all is to assume that the American people are STUPID enough to believe the explanation that he came up with today!”
According to POLITICO’s Manu Raju, Democrats are not happy about the awkward position the White House has put them in as the trainwreck continues to derail, and they’re expected to defend it. And some are placing the blame squarely on Numero Uno.
“You got to have it, to lose it,” said one unidentified Democratic senator when asked about how the ACA’s roll-out is impacting Obama’s credibility.
Obama’s increasingly beleaguered mouthpiece, Jay Carney, is not doing any better credibility wise. His performance today at the White House press briefing has been characterized as a “Meltdown“, “losing it”, “over-the-top”, “flustered”, “sneering”… The low point came when Carney desperately tried to enlist the help of the lapdogs in the room, saying derisively, “I think everyone else is looking quizzical because there’s a reason to be quizzical here,” as if to suggest that Jonathan Karl was the only person there who was too thick-skulled to get a very simple concept. Anyone want to place a bet on the likelihood Jay Carney will be back next year?
