It must have seemed an innocent enough way to mark Presidents Day. Is it possible Diane Sawyer, as a long-time member of the mainstream media elite, really didn’t know that her solicitation of followers’ favorite presidential quotes would result in a catalog of President Obama’s greatest misses?

Drum roll, please. After careful consideration of all the nominees, Sawyer has picked a winner.

    “Everybody knows that it makes no sense that you send a kid to the emergency room for a treatable illness like asthma. They end up taking up a hospital bed. It costs when, if you, they just gave, you gave, treatment early, and they got some treatment, and uhhh a breathalyzer, or uhh, an inhalator, not a breathalyzer…”

      Actually, the second quote is from election night 2008 in Chicago, IL in his victory speech. That’s what makes his god-complex line even more ridiculous.

    “Already the Affordable Care Act is slowing the growth of healthcare costs…”

    • $36544368

      LOL…yeah, sure…that’s why my employer-sponsored health care premium cost went up almost $4,000 for my family this year.

      • Infinite_Indeterminism

        And the percentage of increase was ?

        • $36544368

          Interesting question…the percentage was a little over 60%…but that isn’t the point…even 10% would be too much…here’s why: Obama said that families would see their rates go down by approximately $2,500 per year. So I guess I’d say that to keep in line with this thread, my favorite quote is “I will sign a universal health care bill into law by the end of my first term as president that will cover every American and cut the cost of a typical family’s premium by up to $2,500 a year.” So not only did it not go DOWN the $2,500, but it went UP $4,000, leaving me with a $6,500 broken promise.
