Mitt Romney Says “Fundamental Dishonesty” Over Obamcare Is ‘Rotting it Away” and “Put in Peril” Obama’s Second Term (VIDEO)
Barack Obama, ‘The Lying King’: Oh what tangled webs we weave, when we practice to deceive …
Former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney said Sunday on NBC’s ‘Meet the Press’ that President Barack Obama’s “fundamental dishonesty” over his signature health care program, Obamacare, has “put in peril the whole foundation of his second term.” Romney went on to say that Barack Obama intentionally mislead the American people on the core elements of Obamacare. Romney went on to say that time again that fundamental to his plan was the right people would have to keep their insurance plan, and he knew that was not the case.
“Perhaps the most important lesson the president, I think, failed to learn was, you have to tell the American people the truth. When he told the American people that you could keep your health insurance if you wanted to keep that plan, period (VIDEO), he said that time and again, he wasn’t telling the truth. I think that fundamental dishonesty has really put in peril the whole foundation of his second term.”
“… but the key, I think, that has really undermined the president’s credibility in the hearts of the American people is that he went out as a centerpiece of his campaign and as a centerpiece of Obamacare over the last several years saying time and time again that fundamental to his plan was the right people would have to keep their insurance plan, and he knew that was not the case. He could know it by looking at Massachusetts and seeing people there lost insurance. He could have learned those lessons and told the people the truth, but he didn’t. he told people they could keep their plan. and, you know, it was NBC News that said, look, some 6 million people are going to lose their insurance. that’s not some little number, that’s 6 million American people.”
Last year’s losing Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney said Sunday that President Barack Obama’s “fundamental dishonesty” on the Affordable Care Act has “put in peril the whole foundation of his second term.”
Appearing on NBC’s Meet the Press, Romney said Obama’s handling of Obamacare’s promises “has undermined the foundation of his second term – I think it is rotting it away.”
He added that what “has really undermined the president’s credibility in the hearts of the American people is that he went out, as a centerpiece of his campaign and as a centerpiece of Obamacare over the last several years, saying time and time again that fundamental to his plan was the right people would have to keep their insurance plan, and he knew that was not the case….”
He said “had the president been truthful and told the American people that millions would lose their insurance and millions more would see their premiums skyrocket… there would have been such a hue and cry against it, (that) it would not have passed.”
NBC News Reports … Obama Administration Knew Millions Would Lose Their Health Insurance & Mislead Americans (Barack Obama, The Lying King)
#YOU LIE … Guess who knew you could not keep your health insurance when he promised that you could keep your health insurance if you wanted to? What else would you expect from a “Community Agitator”?
NBC News is reporting that the Obama administration knew for years that millions of Americans would not be able to keep their insurance, even if they liked them directly contradicting the promises of Barack Obama before, during and after the passage of the not-so affordable healthcare act. Yes, you read that correctly, shockingly NBC News is breaking this story that Barack Obama knowingly lied to to “We the People”. Over and over and over, Barack Obama stated from 2009 to the 2012 Presidential election that with Obamacare you can keep your insurance if you like it, no one is going to take your insurance away. LIAR!!! As stated at PJ Media, it is bad enough that Obama completely and knowingly misrepresented the truth. However, the real tragedy was that so many Americans bought this con man’s “snake oil” hook, line and sinker. Thanks to the uniformed and easily lied to individuals, the US has to suffer through another term of what might be the most dishonest and non-transparent president, EVER!
“If you like your plan, you can keep your plan.” – Barack Obama
President Obama repeatedly assured Americans that after the Affordable Care Act became law, people who liked their health insurance would be able to keep it. But millions of Americans are getting or are about to get cancellation letters for their health insurance under Obamacare, say experts, and the Obama administration has known that for at least three years.
Four sources deeply involved in the Affordable Care Act tell NBC NEWS that 50 to 75 percent of the 14 million consumers who buy their insurance individually can expect to receive a “cancellation” letter or the equivalent over the next year because their existing policies don’t meet the standards mandated by the new health care law. One expert predicts that number could reach as high as 80 percent. And all say that many of those forced to buy pricier new policies will experience “sticker shock.”
Buried in Obamacare regulations from July 2010 is an estimate that because of normal turnover in the individual insurance market, “40 to 67 percent” of customers will not be able to keep their policy. And because many policies will have been changed since the key date, “the percentage of individual market policies losing grandfather status in a given year exceeds the 40 to 67 percent range.”
That means the administration knew that more than 40 to 67 percent of those in the individual market would not be able to keep their plans, even if they liked them.
Guess what, this deceitful administration is still lying to the American people with regards to individuals can keep their insurance at White House.gov. As Weasel Zippers opines, Obama may want to update the website. But we all know the difficulties this White House seems to have with web pages.
From Breitbart.com comes the following post on 1.5 million individuals will lose their healthcare coverage and a VIDEO of White House Press Liar Jay Carney attempting to spin and backtrack on Obama’s promise to America that if you liked your health insurance, you can keep it. Obama is in serious trouble on this and so are the Democrats in 2014. When Americans finally figure out that Obama’s promises were out-right lies, he will have an approval rating in the 20′s.
UPDATE I: Hmm, isn’t this interesting … the NBC report slamming the Obama administration that they knew Americans would lose their insurance has gone bye-bye. Looks like NBC got a call to take the story down. The story still exists in the Google search, but as the Gate Way Pundit points out, does to a dead link. Didn’t NBC get the memo after their latest SNL skit this past weekend ripping HHS Sec. and Obamacare that they were no longer to make fun of the imperial president?
UPDATE II: The story is back, I guess NBC is having some “glitchy” issues like Healthcare.gov.

Liberal Sports Commentator Bob Costas Does DNC Infomercial on “Redskins” Rant During Cowboy-Washington NFL Game
Thanks Bob Costas for that DNC infomercial … More liberal media bias.
As if following the lead of Barack Obama on suddenly making the name ‘Redskin’s’ the most important issue in America as we face a government shutdown, debt limit default, over-spending, jobless recovery, and record number of American on food stamps, NBC’s Bob Costas decided to provide us with some perils of wisdom to pressure the Washington Redskins into changing their name. Yup, during half-time of last nights Cowboys – Redskins game, Costas provided a free DNC commercial.
So, at halftime of the Sunday Night Football game between the Dallas Cowboys and the Washington REDSKINS, Bob Costas decided to lay down some wisdom on America. He started out okay in his discussion of Obama’s new pet project, to pressure Washington into changing the name of the football team, but almost at the end when you were sufficiently sucked in, he threw out the bombshell…..the use of the term “Redskins” is indeed offensive … a nasty slur.
And there you have it. Just like Global Warming, um, I mean Climate Change, the debate about the term “Redskins” is now settled science. Expect for Washington to be changing their name very soon.
Just curious Bob, you have been a sports announcer for 30+ years, why is it all of a sudden that you decided to speak out against the name change? Oh that’s right, you got the talking points ok to do so from Barack Obama. Even though a majority of Americans, including Native Americans are against a name change. But Bob and Barack know better.

Pulitzer Prize Winner Seymour Hersh Says The Obama Administration Lies Systematically and American Media is Pathetic and Carries His Water
The MSM, from watchdogs to Obama lapdogs … And we wonder why investigative journalism is dead?
The Guardians’ Seymour Hersh calls out Barack Obama, his minions and the lapdog main stream media. Hersh says that the Obama Administration lies systematically and American MSM is pathetic, bias and afraid to actually report the truth regarding Obama. It does seem lately to actually get an investigative, non-bias news story these days, we have to look to The Guardian or other foreign media as the Americans MSM is in the tank for Barack Obama. Hersh is hardly a right-winger, who is calling the Obama administration a bunch of liars and the MSM in the tank. Hersh all but calls the American MSM propagandists and chicken to stand up to Obama. Instead of acting like objective “outsiders” the MSM instead acts in a partisan manner and tries to get their president reelected.
Remember when the MSM used to report the news, not act as a propaganda wing of the White House?
Seymour Hersh has got some extreme ideas on how to fix journalism – close down the news bureaus of NBC and ABC, sack 90% of editors in publishing and get back to the fundamental job of journalists which, he says, is to be an outsider.
It doesn’t take much to fire up Hersh, the investigative journalist who has been the nemesis of US presidents since the 1960s and who was once described by the Republican party as “the closest thing American journalism has to a terrorist”.
He is angry about the timidity of journalists in America, their failure to challenge the White House and be an unpopular messenger of truth.
Don’t even get him started on the New York Times which, he says, spends “so much more time carrying water for Obama than I ever thought they would” – or the death of Osama bin Laden. “Nothing’s been done about that story, it’s one big lie, not one word of it is true,” he says of the dramatic US Navy Seals raid in 2011.
The Obama administration lies systematically, he claims, yet none of the leviathans of American media, the TV networks or big print titles, challenge him.
“It’s pathetic, they are more than obsequious, they are afraid to pick on this guy [Obama],” he declares in an interview with the Guardian.
“It used to be when you were in a situation when something very dramatic happened, the president and the minions around the president had control of the narrative, you would pretty much know they would do the best they could to tell the story straight. Now that doesn’t happen any more. Now they take advantage of something like that and they work out how to re-elect the president.

When Comedy Meets Reality: Jay Leno Rips Barack Obama as He Waits in Green Room … “How About Solving the Problems That Brought Our Country to a Halt”
The Comedian in Chief … the sad reality is, that the joke is really on all of us.
They used to say that Obama was not good for late night comedy shows because he was not funny. Looks like the times are a changing as Jay Leno makes it a nightly occurrence to make fun of and mock President Barack Obama. Leno is a master of the obvious when it comes to humor and comedy … in order for something to be really funny, there has got to be truth involved. Jay Leno did not even hold back in his monologue even when Obama was making an appearance last night on ‘The Tonight Show’ … “How About Solving the Problems That Brought Our Country to a Halt”
“President Obama has sent John McCain to Cairo to help solve the political problems that brought the Egyptian government to a halt. I got an idea. How about solving the problems that brought our country to a halt.”
This was just a case of more media bias as Barack Obama was provided a softball interview that basically was an infomercial.
We will not even go into the fact right now that what the hell was Obama doing on a comedy show discussing the problems of the economy, Obamacare and terror in the Middle East? Really, this is the venue that this president thinks is appropriate? It was not like Leno was going to ask a tough follow up question.

George Zimmerman Attorney James Beasley Says All Ahead Full in Lawsuit Against NBC News Now that Verdict of “Not Guilty” Returned by Jury in Murder Trial
James Beasley, George Zimmerman’s attorney in his law suit for defamation of character against NBC News for doctoring and mis-editing Zimmeramn’s 911 call, stated that they are going forward and full speed ahead now that the criminal murder case against Zimmerman is over and he was found “not guilty”. Every one is talking about George Zimmerman’s legal troubles, a most certain civil lawsuit by the estate of Trayvon martin and a possible federal civil rights charge by the DOJ, even though the FBI has previous found that Zimmerman was not racist and did not display any prejudice or racial bias. But it would appear the most immediate legal action is going to be that of George Zimmerman suing NBC News for defamation.
Last night’s not-guilty verdict in the George Zimmerman trial will enable the neighborhood-watch volunteer to resume his case against NBC News for the mis-editing of his widely distributed call to police. Back in December, Zimmerman sued NBC Universal Media for defamation over the botched editing, which depicted him as a hardened racial profiler.
The company also noted the pivotal nature of the second-degree murder case: “[I]f Zimmerman is convicted, that fact alone will constitute substantial evidence that the destruction of his reputation is the result of his own criminal conduct, and not of the broadcasts at issue which, like countless other news reports disseminated by media entities throughout the country, reported on the underlying events.”
That formulation is now null.
According to Zimmerman attorney James Beasley, the case against NBC News was stayed pending the outcome of the criminal case. Now that’s out of the way, and Beasley is ready to proceed. “We’re going to start in earnest asap, we just have to get the stay lifted which is a ministerial act,” says Beasley, a Philadelphia lawyer, via e-mail.
Brent Bozell and Sean Hannity discussing the media and political bias against George Zimmerman … the NBC doctored 911 tape
NBC News presented the 911 call as follows, in a March 27, 2012, broadcast of the “Today” show, abridged the tape of Zimmerman’s comments to a police dispatcher on the evening of Feb. 26, 2012:
Zimmerman: This guy looks like he’s up to no good. He looks black.
However, the undoctored and full tape went like this:
Zimmerman: This guy looks like he’s up to no good. Or he’s on drugs or something. It’s raining and he’s just walking around, looking about. Dispatcher: OK, and this guy — is he black, white or Hispanic?
Zimmerman: He looks black.
NewsBuster reminds us that NBC has since fired three employees because of this incident, but claims that it did not engage in a deliberate misrepresentation of the facts. Oh, of course not. This was an obvious case of NBC News going out of their way to doctor a 911 call to present a narrative to the American people that would support the LEFT’s witch hunt of Zimmerman. It could not be more clear. As Patterico’s Pontifications opines, one of the biggest villains in this case was “Big Media” and NBC was at the head of the list.
EXIT QUESTION: When has the news media ever had to edit a 911 tape except to take out expletives or addresses?
Just curious, how come the LEFT and Barack Obama do not complain about the following not being fair?
It must be nice to be the daughter of a former president of the United States, otherwise Chelsea Clinton would never have landed this plum position with NBC. Watch the following video and listen to this riveting interview with the GEICO Gecko. Good grief, are you serious? Talk about getting the big gets. If the material was not bad enough, the interviewing style and her voice are just unreal. Does anyone honestly thing that if Chelsea was not the daughter of Former President Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton she would ever have got this job? Talk about nepotism and the rich getting richer.
From News Busters:
CHELSEA CLINTON: Getting pigeon-holed is a worry even for a gecko. So he was only too happy to answer our questions. Are you concerned about being typecast?
GECKO: Well, I definitely don’t get the hunky leading man roles. Although I could probably get the hunky leading gecko roles.
CLINTON: Have you always had that accent?
GECKO: Sorry, Chelsea, what accent?
CLINTON: After 15 years of selling insurance, this commercial star is looking to branch out.
GECKO: I’m out on the road promoting my new book “You’re Only Human.” Shameless plug there.
CLINTON: Is there a down side to all this fame?
GECKO: Well, it seems the more famous you are the more likely someone is to dig up your old yearbook photos
If she can’t properly interview a lizard, why does anyone think she is qualified to run for political office? Oh, that’s right, it does not matter, she offspring of the Clintons.
Barack Obama, the Lying King: White House Econimic Adviser Gene Sperling Admits WH Proposed Sequester After Obama Lied About It in Debate
BARACK OBAMA, THE
LION LYING KING: SEQUESTRATION EDITION …
Yesterday on NBC’s ‘Meet the Press,’ White House economic adviser Gene Sperling admitted that, yes, in fact, the sequestration was President Obama’s plan, even though Obama lied about it during the 2012 Presidential debates and more recently. Obama claimed that the sequester was not his idea and something he did not propose. Mr. President, YOU LIE!
“We put forth the design of” the sequestration, Sperling finally admits after a long back-and-forth
What is interesting is that the liberal MSM actually did pursue this story. Although it happens of rarely as Halley’s Comet, David Gregory did make Gene Sperling twist in the wind until he finally admitted that the sequestration was Barack Obama’s idea. Weasel Zippers asks, could there be some hope for the MSM to actually hold this administration accountable? Probably not, but anything is better than the nothing that we have observed for the past 4+ years. Which begs the question, what shape would the country be in and would have Obama ever been reelected, let alone elected if the MSM had done their job and held Obama’s feet to the fire?
From Ann Althouse comes the portion of the transcript regarding WOODWARDGATE:
DAVID GREGORY: Here was an e-mail from you to Bob Woodward that was released. In it: “I do truly believe you should rethink your comment about saying that the president asking for revenues is moving the goalpost. I know you may not believe this, but as a friend, I think you will regret staking out that claim.” When you said “you will regret staking out that claim,” what did you mean?
GENE SPERLING: I meant that, while the first issue of whose idea it was, the sequester, was one I disagreed with him on but I could see how honorable people could disagree. I was trying to explain to him, from a substantive point of view, that the idea that the president of the United States was moving the goalpost by asking for the type of balance of tax reform that raised revenues, that the Speaker Boehner himself, as you noted, had called for, as well as long-term entitlements, together, to get rid of the sequester, was not only not moving the goalpost: That was the whole idea of the sequester. And I think that e-mail was cordial. It was substantive. It was polite.
DAVID GREGORY: But you say, “You’re going to regret it.” I mean, does the president think that’s a good idea to say to reporters, to challenge them that, “You’re going to regret staking out that claim”?
