Gee, how on earth did that happen?

Monica Crowley sums it up with a simple truth:

Bam! People don’t like bald-faced liars with pants a’fire. Period.

Other Twitter users pointed out that basic fact of life to Chuck Todd as well.

Funny, that.

Gasping for breath, period! Obama describes his ‘keep your plan’ lie [Photoshop]

  • Jennifer

    The shocking part is that it took this long.

    • Jack Deth

      Some people require tangible and often empiric evidence to slap them upside their heads.

      • MrApple

        Like seeing that the “free for everyone” plan they pushed is getting paid for by THEM.

        • Jack Deth

          You mean the L.A. woman who opined and whined:

          “I was all for Obama Care. Until I found out I had to pay for it!”

          Classic liberal logic at work.

          • Thale Taxurfeet

            “You mean the L.A. woman who opined and whined:

            “I was all for Obama Care. Until I found out I had to pay for it!”

            *shakes head*

            Must be soul mates?

            Or maybe separated at birth?

          • Mark81150 Never/Trump/Hillary

            saddest part.. so many black voters actually bought into this.. That the only thing holding them back from getting free stuff and moving to the top of the power pyramid, was not having a black president..

            The upside world of believing all you need to better your life, is get somebody else to pay all your bills for you..

            How did it ever get this bad..

            and because they have a lock on that vote, the democrats will never tell them the plain truth.. no matter how many lives it ruins.

          • Thale Taxurfeet

            “How did it ever get this bad..”

            Initially? Good intentions run amok. And to throw out just a few of examples.

            Rewarding fatherless homes with additional public funds versus the amount of assistance given to homes with both a mother AND father? The unintended consequence being generations of fatherless children not having a positive male role model in their lives.

            Having a culture develop where education is demeaned as being something to be avoided, as in acting/speaking/thinking like a <fill in despised race/socio-economic demographic here>.

            Public [funded] education freed from the constraint of public control/oversight.

            Public unions who fund public representatives which are the ones who are supposed to bargain on behalf of the public at contract negotiation time.

            The list can be right long if one really wants to dig into the matter.

          • Erin Bullock

            Most definitely separated at birth. Even soul mates have some differences. They could be clones.

      • WhoMeToo

        ….with a bat. >:^)

        • TugboatPhil ✓Mate

          Or as is sometimes referred to as a “knowledge stick.” That causes the recipient to have “knowledge bumps” on top of their brain.

          • Jack Deth

            “Knowledge stick” is good, Phil.

            I prefer the good old fashioned 1″ Male Drive Snap-On Ratchet, or “Whompin’ Stick”.

            A thousand on one uses!

          • TugboatPhil ✓Mate

            It’s like the “duct tape” of motivational tools.

          • Thale Taxurfeet

            “It’s like the “duct tape” of motivational tools.”

            I’m leaning more towards giving all the positively persistent pestilence, aka Ocare supporters, this piece of advice.

            Call it automotivational. The old give ’em a fish vs. teach ’em strategery…

          • TugboatPhil ✓Mate

            Kind of like: If you give a man a match, you’ll keep him warm for a day. But if you set a man on fire, you’ll keep him warm for the rest of his life?

          • Thale Taxurfeet

            Well thanks Phil! I just cycled the first beer of the day in through my mouth and out through my nose… 😉

          • TugboatPhil ✓Mate

            I think I read that in Mad Magazine or something similar.

          • Thale Taxurfeet

            Alfred E. helped me navigate the wonder years.

          • WhoMeToo

            I like it! ~_^

    • John Howard

      What will be even more shocking it I bet he bounces back. Love is blind, you know. His adoring public will be eager to find an excuse to give a pass on this.
      Actually, it’s not so much love as bribery. Enough free stuff and they’d forgive anything.

      • Chevypowered

        Between my people (Black Americans) and uber White Liberals that is the base that will keep him above 40%.

        • constitutionminded

          I do wish that the Blacks would wake up and realize that the Liberal Democrats are no different from the plantation owners in the 1800’s. If they ever do, there won’t be enough light poles. And then they will be truly free.

          • Mark81150 Never/Trump/Hillary

            Maybe it will happen someday, after Obama’s gone, and the empty promises, and broken dreams are all they have to show for blind allegiance..

            maybe they’ll learn that his skin may have been black, but his soul was socialist red.

        • TugboatPhil ✓Mate

          Good use of “uber” with the liberal elites. They would have enjoyed Der Fuhrer’s on-time train schedule.

        He’ll start bombing the Vatican or someplace else to give the MSM a distraction. Works every time. We’ll never hear them mention BamsterCare again.

        • therealguyfaux ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

          There are some out there who think that he KNEW what a shambolic rollout this would be, but he figured, if Syria was the main story, he could demonize Repubs and cow them into not “shuttin’-‘er down” — and we’d all be too busy with Bashar al-Assad to worry about Kathleen al-Sebelius. Ooh, look, Squirrelzilla!

    • Bill Phillips

      Remember you CAN FOOL SOME of the people ALL of the time!

    • Karin_A

      No kidding! Jeez!

    • rssllue

      He’s been getting away with it for so long, he thought he was untouchable and that all he said would NEVER be questioned by the public as a whole. So sad that he was wrong, isn’t it?

    • Chris

      I am not shocked, most libs really are that dumb. Some still wont believe he lied even though its been proven….

  • j p✓ʳᵉᶠʳᶦᵉᵈ

    Oh to have enough charisma to blatantly lie and still be loved and trusted.
    I noticed that B.O. didn’t come out with this statement: That boy in Danvers, Massachusetts, if I had a son he would have looked like him. (much more the spitting image than Trevon)

  • Andy Rigo ✓ᵗᵉʳʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    If the media had ACTUALLY done their job by investigating Obama’s claim that people who like their healthcare could keep it when he first started peddling that provable lie, we wouldn’t be saddled with this Liar In Chief for another term.

    • Chrissy the Hyphenated

      They’re still not doing the job we want them to do or that a Democratic Republic requires them to do. They’re still following the orders of whoever is the true power, exactly the way they did when they suddenly dropped Hillary in 2008 and went all in for Obama. Whoever the true power is has obviously decided that throwing BHO under the bus is the best move to keep us all continuing to be distracted from what’s been going on since 2007 when the Democrats took over … which is to demoralize and downsize the military, disarm law-abiding Americans and drive the nation into bankruptcy. All these are necessary for destroying our ability to stay free. And all of these are STILL ON TRACK.


    How can they still be that high?

    • Chevypowered

      The media. Until they start doing their jobs Obama’s ratings will tank but it will be a slow crawl at best.

      • pinupartist

        Chuckles must’ve cried himself to sleep after having to report that…

        • Chrissy the Hyphenated

          This is a man who keeps careful count of every slight and nurses grudges for a long, long time. Having even Chris Matthews dumping on him is no doubt pushing him over the edge and he’ll be having a public meltdown some time soon. I’m glad his daughters have their own body guards.

  • Captain America’s Wife
  • sb36695

    He’s always been a liar. Did people just start noticing?

  • Jim Denney

    “The Juan Williams” and the rest of the black racists still like him though, so there’s that. There’s a reason they’re called “base.”

  • Garrett Gripling

    58% of this country is racist obviously.

  • cscape

    not SIMPLY a liar…… that would be explainable or even forgivable….. but a LIAR who believes his own lies, and is angered when others take issue with it – in other words, DANGEROUSLY DELUSIONAL

  • disqus_eric

    “You lie!”

    America was warned.

  • Chevypowered

    Don’t worry the media has a plan.

    40% will be the new 50%

    39% will be the new 51%

    Hope everyone is taking notes. There will be a test on this later!

  • therealguyfaux ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    “No– NO!– it can’t be! Our Dear Leader would never lie to us! It’s Bush– or the Koch Brothers– or the Tea Party– or somebody– that MADE him say those things that turned out to be untrue! You mark my words– when we finally get to the bottom of this, we’ll find out he was misled by those who had been ‘gotten-to’ and been forced to give him faulty data…”

    You just know you’re going to hear some tin-foiler come up with this one. Anybody want to start an over-and-under on how soon this becomes the official position of the more mainstream of the Obama-right-or-wrong brigade?

    Obama is a pathological, serial liar. He can’t be trusted, his word means nothing, and no one should take him seriously going forward.

    • alanstorm

      Yes, this was obvious to just under half the country 5 – 6 years ago. The fact that over half were unable to see through his BS is scary.

    7 Awesome Things That Took Less Time Than HealthCare.go
    1. The Empire State Building
    The iconic 103-story skyscraper reigned as the world’s tallest building for nearly 40 years. And it only took 410 days to build! At that pace, workers could have built two more Empire State Buildings in the time it took to create one health care website that doesn’t work.
    2. Defeating the Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei (National Socialist German Workers Party)
    3. This Thing
    Just as useful as HealthCare.go
    4. The iPhone
    5. The Rose Bowl
    6. This Awesome Baby
    7. Pretty Much Every Website Ever
    If big government can’t even build a website that works, how on earth are they going to handle your health care?

  • Robert A> Reed

    42% WOW that’s still a bunch of Dumb Asses

  • Bill Phillips

    It’s ONLY a matter of time before the MSM starts using Obama’s favorite excuse “He didn’t know!” … “He was kept out of the loop!” …..I mean after all, how could he. They think Obama is LIKE a god …but know he’s not really God. Besides most of the MSM don’t believe in God anyway!

    • TugboatPhil ✓Mate

      Well they do worship A god, but his name is Lucifer.

  • Bryn Watkins

    Hopefully people realize that the lying was aided and abetted by the MSM, and blame them accordingly.

  • constitutionminded

    We predicted that the Democrats would eventually have the truth thrown up in their faces. Now if they would just commit hari-kari and get it over with.

    • LegalizeShemp

      If you’ve ever debated a Democrat, you’ll know that facing the truth is not their strong point.

      • constitutionminded

        All they can do is name calling.

  • cltcat

    Unfortunately, politicians know the general public has a short memory. They count on it and it never fails. The 5% of people whom took this long to wake up will be back in his loving arms after he throws them another bone paid for by hard working Americans. Needless to say I’m not optimistic that this drop will amount to any change in 2014.

    • QueenB ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

      He will have a small problem next year when the employer mandate delay expires and millions more people, who currently have insurance through their employer, start getting their cancellation letters.

  • Attila

    Obama is a pathological liar. He should be impeached.

  • rightpower

    What’s shocking to me is that 42% still approve.

    • HanaFiveO

      They took this poll when the media was caught between covering for him and being forced to report on people loosing their insurance. Cant wait for the next poll in two weeks when the website still sucks gas and the media is forced to report in earnest, the deluge of people losing their insurance.

  • nc ✓s & balances

    It all hinges on the Media. Trouble is they got themselves in so deep this time there is no way they can expose him without exposing themselves as well. But the lies are too obvious for even them to ignore.

    Did you see Chris Matthews getting all INDIGNANT on his Monday night show about Benghazi, demanding to know why wasn’t help sent during those 7 hours! But of course, if 60 Minutes hadn’t run the story the night before, does anyone think he would have said anything?

    So now we see little blips here and there from them about truth problems with BHO, and SHAZAM! His poll numbers drop. No kidding. Thanks, Media, for EVERYTHING.

  • AmericanMom

    The time is ripe for someone to write a book: Obama’s legacy of lies. It’ll be a thick book.

    • Tantalus XVI

      Too bad the author would be called racist before they even write it 😛

      • AmericanMom

        Obama and media declaring if we’re white we must be racist is another lie, both complicit in spreading it.

      The MSM kept the truth hidden as long as they could, but it eventually leaks out.

  • Ron Morisseau


  • Ed McDowell

    He never lied – he was taken out of context AND Fox edited his statements and inserted ” you will not be able to keep your insurance” for “can, will be able to, etc.” Damn that FNC! Look at the trouble they caused.

    • ELC

      I guess you don’t watch tv often. Of course he lied and now he’s trying to backtrack all his words. Blame Fox all you want…but they didn’t make up this story or take it out of context. Only you who would like to believe he’s a Messiah.

    • ObamaFail

      You’re an idiot. He wasn’t taken out of context. Even the MSM played those sound bites for years to help promote insurance, using it to keep up the “insuring the uninsured” talking point. Now you want to accuse Fox of editing his statements? You libs are pathetic. HE LIED!! And it’s not the first time. HE LIED, SO STOP DEFENDING HIM!!!

      • Ed McDowell

    I predict that Odumbo’s continuous lying to the public which is on record will be his permanent downfall if it hasn’t happened already. Ladies and gentlemen we now have a LAME DUCK PREZ.
