Obama flips and flops on health care rules

I give up. "If you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor. Period," Obama said in a speech to the American Medical Association on June 15, 2009. "If you like your health care plan, you'll be able to keep your health care plan. Period. No one will take it away, no matter what."

During an appearance in front of supporters at the Nov. 4 Organizing for America summit in Washington, D.C., President Obama said, "What we said was, you could keep your health care plan ... if it hasn't changed since the law passed."

You can't have it both ways. How can our president stand before the American people and continue to repeatedly make contradictory statements? Does he not realize what he is saying or does he think the American people will believe anything he says?

To quote presidential Press Secretary Jay Carney, at the Nov. 4 press conference, "I give up."
