ABC News (!) takes apart Obama's credibility:
"I didn't campaign on the public option," President Obama told the Washington Post yesterday.
Is that true?
It depends on what the meaning of "campaign" is.
Was it a major emphasis of his campaign? Not after he won the Democratic presidential nomination.
But did he mention it?
Was it part of his "campaign"? Yes.
He told Planned Parenthood activists in 2007 that he wanted to set up "a public plan that all persons and all women can access if they don't have health insurance. It will be a plan that will provide all essential services, including reproductive services."
Ok, so no one is really surprised by this. Every time Obama opens his mouth these days, his credibility sinks lower and lower. Here's one blog that hits Obama head-on:
"Talk about hopeless audacity. Barack Obama’s petulant performance today presented a persona to the American people that they are likely to see with increasing frequency over the next three years. And the more they see the less they will like."
And yet another calling out Obama for his, um, lack of candor.
Now compare and contrast this campaign video:
I guess he truly believes that the American people are stupid. Well, Mr. President, we are not. And, sir, don't think that we're not keeping score.
