Obama Dissembles On His Plans For Health Care

A friend says to me -- Unlike our current president, for all his shortcomings, former President G.W. Bush at least was not a narcissistic liar. That about sums it up. It is clear to all with open eyes that President Obama is a man of the left, if one pays any attention to his actions and associations, past and present, rather than to his words. But he fools the foolable with his verbal misdirections and falsehoods. He soothingly and earnestly assures us that he is not leading America to the left as he carefully and methodically does just that. For the left, the end has always justified the means.

Obama, strongly pitching his “public option” government-run health plan that he knows is nothing more than a Trojan Horse for nationalized, government-run health care, said this (link) today to a gathering of leaders of the American Medical Association:

"What are not legitimate concerns are those being put forward claiming a public option is somehow a Trojan horse for a single-payer system," he said. "I'll be honest. There are countries where a single-payer system may be working. But I believe — and I've even taken some flak from members of my own party for this belief — that it is important for us to build on our traditions here in the United States. So, when you hear the naysayers claim that I'm trying to bring about government-run health care, know this — they are not telling the truth."
Small lies might not convince, but the big ones ….
