White House: Tells how Obama Gets a Pass on the Lying

white_house

In his attempt to take on the misinformation that the White House says is being spread about health-care reform, President Obama himself misspoke, the White House admitted Wednesday. (President Obama seems to misspeak allot……..does this mean we should “rat” on him?)

White House press secretary Robert Gibbs acknowledged that Mr. Obama spoke inaccurately in New Hampshire on Tuesday when he stated that AARP, the nation’s largest organization for retirees, was endorsing his health-care-reform proposal. (No President Obama thought no one would disagree with him from AARP……I guess President Obama’s needs a czar to watch FOX NEWS so they will know what is being said by AARP before the President goes on national t.v. and LIES ……..ooops….misspeaks)

Mr. Gibbs, who continued Wednesday to accuse opponents of the president’s reform plan of distributing “misinformation,” said the president was not trying to mislead anyone. (Bull!! He thought if he said AARP endorsed him all the elderly VOTERS would feel more a ease about the health care reform bill.)

AARP has endorsed an $80 billion White House deal with pharmaceutical drug manufacturers that will save seniors money under Medicare Part D, but has not expressed support for any of the specific pieces of legislation currently making their way through Congress.

Yet Mr. Obama on Tuesday mentioned AARP three separate times as a supporter of his reform plans, saying they were “on board,” that they are “supportive” and finally that the group of roughly 40 million is “endorsing” a bill. yes he misspoke  over and over and over…….once is a mistake……3 times is just lying!

“AARP would not be endorsing a bill if it was undermining Medicare, OK?” Mr. Obama said at a town-hall meeting in Portsmouth.

AARP’s chief operating officer, Tom Nelson, quickly rebutted the president on Tuesday.

“Indications that we have endorsed any of the major health-care-reform bills currently under consideration in Congress are inaccurate,” Mr. Nelson said.

White House officials said privately that the president spoke accurately in general terms because AARP does support the reform effort but that he crossed a line when he used the word “endorse.” ( Did he get a pass on the lie?)

White House “officials said” EXactly what President Obama wants them to say!!
