Obama claims ignorance far more than he should

info@islandpacket.comDecember 4, 2013 

President Obama refuses to lead, preferring to be a bystander.

He knew nothing about Fast and Furious, NSA spying, the IRS targeting conservative groups or the Benghazi tragedy where four Americans were killed. He also claims to know nothing about the illegal phone tapping of news professionals.

He is aware of the Cambridge police incident, the Trayvon Martin case, the NCAA college tournament and the Washington Redskins controversy. He was also aware of and took full credit for the Navy SEALs' elimination of Osama Bin Laden.

His disastrous signature legislation (the ACA) is a bait and switch plan. Since 2008, he has lied, repeating over and over, "If you like your health care plan, you can keep it, period" and "If you like your doctor, you can keep him, period."

He compounded his lie by saying that if you like your health care plan you can keep it, provided it conforms to Obamacare mandates. It signals he has no respect for the intelligence of the American people. Over 5.5 million plans canceled so far and estimates are that 100 million will be canceled in 2014. Millions of cancer sufferers will die without coverage.

Obama blames Republicans and insurance companies. I'm surprised he hasn't blamed Bush. Obama and Democrats have known cancellations would occur since 2010. Can we believe anything they say?
