Nope, it’s not a joke. Although, the New York Times editorial board itself is a joke. Say hello to ludicrous hackery!

Your “betters” know best, you see. Except, of course, they totally don’t.

Ridiculous. The entire piece is beyond parody. But Twitter is buzzing over this most outlandish statement:

Serious You Guys. He totally just misspoke.

Congressional Republicans have stoked consumer fears and confusion with charges that the health care reform law is causing insurers to cancel existing policies and will force many people to pay substantially higher premiums next year for coverage they don’t want. That, they say, violates President Obama’s pledge that if you like the insurance you have, you can keep it.

Mr. Obama clearly misspoke when he said that.

Clearly misspoke.

Over and over. PERIOD.

Yep. No one is buying the pitiful lies y’all are trying to sell.

Take it away, Twitter!

Bingo. That is all that needs to be said.  President Pants on Fire lied. Outrageously and consistently, no matter what pitiful euphemism-spin media lapdogs try to put on it. Lies are lies. The end.

Some exit advice for the New York Times


And Dana Perino zings the fish wrap of record:

Boot-licking fail.

Update: In a nutshell:

He is SMART PEOPLE.

          • SideTraKd

            Oh, I completely agree. If Obama’s college transcripts showed him to be as brilliant as his sycophants claim him to be, they would have been broadcast repeatedly over the media hundreds (if not thousands) of times by now.

            Obviously there is something in those transcripts that puts Obama in a bad light, so they must remain secret.

      • pajamakat

        Because the NYT readers love Obama. I went there the other day. They all blame the Repubs and the govt’ shutdown for the failure of obamacare. There was also a doctor on there stating that we need to have a single-payer system. After reading all those comments I am convinced – liberalism is a mental disorder.

      • Brad Donald

        The top comments are all critical of the NYT story and its EDITORIAL board. Basically they just all but admitted that they are no longer and institute of journalism, but one of propaganda for the democrats.

    • Rusty Jewell

    BHO seems to have a propensity for misspeaking. The book “The spirit of Islam,” by the Muslim scholar, Afif A. Tabbarah was written to promote Islam. On page 247, Tabbarah stated: “Lying is not always bad, to be sure; there are times when telling a lie is more profitable and better for the general welfare, and for the settlement of conciliation among people, than telling the truth. To this effect, the Prophet says: ‘He is not a false person who (through lies) settles conciliation among people, supports good or says what is good.”

But they’re not doing what they were meant to do and we have people like Obama running around being able to fundamentally change EVERYTHING because they sweep it under the rug or twist everything for him.

      Oh, man are you spot on! We have to destroy them by refusing to buy their product. This includes visiting their website as every NYT/Lib media page you click on earns them a tiny amount of money.

    • AnneCameo

      Yes, totally correct. Obama “played” the MSM; and more and more people are leaving them, for not doing their job of honest reporting. It is why free speech was/is considered so important in the U.S. to maintain our rights and freedoms.

      But, let’s not leave the “citizen” out of the responsibility to learn and take an active part in their governing. People have become lazy, enjoying this great country; and many don’t bother to even vote. We need to change, as a country, take our power back. All polls indicate what the majority favors – yet the results weren’t the same at the polls? VOTE. 11/2014

    • CustomDesigned

      The media would have no power if people didn’t read/view and believe it. Those people spend their money on it because they want to believe it. As fewer and fewer people are willing to spend personal funds on government propaganda, expect some government “bailouts” of media giants, along with more editorial control.

  • John Howard

    Those who put Obama and the Party of Criminals into office need to understand they “misvoted” and correct themselves next time around.

    • OLLPOH ~ OurLifeLiberty

      Great sarcasm, John! ;’)

    • AnneCameo

      Although, I really like your “misvoted”. These Lib followers were stupid, remain stupid and uninformed, and the MSM is assisting them in that goal.

      Obama LIED, and if his mouth is moving, he’s lying.

  • BeevaloBill

    What is particularly amusing is that the NYT closed the comment section after 119 comments. Apparently they do not want others judging their smarmy boot licking.

  • Davis Thompson

    The New York Times has officially jumped the shark.

  • in_awe

    Come on, the fishwrap of record has a long history of these explanations starting with Walter Duranty in the 1930’s:

    – those peasants in the Ukraine weren’t starved to death, they were transitioned to a better place through dieting.
    – those army officers weren’t murdered they were transitioned to a better place through high speed conversion of their sentient status, not lead poisoning as reported elsewhere

    – those Jews weren’t persecuted, they refused polite opportunities to embrace the state religion in place of their stale beliefs

    The list is endless…

    • AnneCameo

      Sooooo, do you write for the Libs? I’m sure I’ve seen them use your words? (lol)

  • Fhalkyn Phoenix

    “Clearly, Obama misspoke.”
    Clear as mud! So, on an unrelated topic NYT, how do Dear Leader’s boots taste today?

  • David Broderick

    Stop the excuses … he’s reading an f’in teleprompter, not misspeaking.

  • John Kerry’s Forehead

    Why is anyone surprised? NYT, along with most rags and alleged news programs stopped writing their own stories 5 years ago. All stories come fromWH now. Valerie Jarrett tells them what to report and when to report it.

    • AnneCameo

      As the MSM is and has so severely “failed” to do honest reporting since 2008 and their “Obama love”, they are, and will be, more examples and subjects of the disastrous leadership of Obama.

      I refuse to patronize newspapers that only do lib biased stories, and local news that only have the Lib biased viewpoint; and DEMONIZE everyone else and everything else who disagree with this miserable ruler. They prefer to stay uninformed, refuse to open their eyes to the facts, and unfortunately many will stay stupid.

      We have an important election in 2014 (regardless of the focus on 2016 and Hillary – who cares). The GOP can retake Congress, repeal ACA and Impeach O. Our country will not survive until 2017, without this change. Vote in new GOP – and demand they represent CONSERVATIVES – who actually represent 50% of the country, and have had no representation since 2006 – when Dems took over Congress and O. took over ruling.

      2014 all conservatives need to vote.

  • sanirab

    There is a song that was performed by the Eagles that could fit perfectly for Obama if it didn’t insult a group of great musicians. “You Can’t Hide Those Lying Eyes”.

  • Daniel

    No, I am most certain that Obama “quoted” what his teleprompter “misquoted”. The fastest way to resolve this is to call Google, Verizon, and James Cameron.

  • Snarkey1968

    The scary part is…there are people out there that believe the NYT and will defend them! Yikes!!!

    • AnneCameo

      Has anyone else seen the interviews of some college students and people in the streets? They have no idea who Pelosi, Kerry, Reid, etc. are; and didn’t realize that Obamacare and ACA is the very same thing? Now, this is more than 3 years since ACA became law. And, of course, they blame everything bad on the GOP?

    • Snarkey1968

      Good God! I went to the editorial and read some of the comments… Folks, we are doomed!!

  • K Fahn

    Just sit right back and you’ll hear a tale,
    a tale of an ego trip.
    It started in some foreign land,
    although he won’t admit.

    His mate was a mighty clueless man,
    a verified dim wit.
    Five cronies came along that day
    to help him make his hit.

    The polls they started getting rough
    the constitution would be tossed,
    If not for the courage of a fearless few
    our country may be lost.

    His law was placed on the shores that day
    With Joe Biden
    Obama too
    Pelosi and Harry Reid
    Kerry and Sebelius
    here in Obama’s Land

    So this is a tale of the establishment,
    been here for a long long time.
    We’re told to make the best of it,
    to speak out becomes a crime.

    The clueless mate and media too,
    will do their very best
    to make you believe his words
    are not filled with lies and trash

    So join us here each day my friends,
    you’re sure to get the shaft
    from seven ego maniacs
    here in Obama’s Land


  • OLLPOH ~ OurLifeLiberty

    Time after Time…
    Somebody did a song that was titled that didn’t they? Lib?

  • Eddie frOly

    Wow but hey they are totally unbiased and objective!! How can he have misspoke probably at least a hundred times over three years! Every stop he made while campaigning he made that statement. You have to be allergic to facts and logic to believe that he misspoke.

  • JoJo58

    obama didn’t lie to those that voted for him. He lied to the ENTIRE country and anyone within listening distance. Period.

  • Oxbow

    lily white knight liberals coming to the rescue of the poor black man who can’t articulate himself properly.

    • TDS

      But… But… He’s so “well-spoken and articulate”…

  • lilwren

    Yet, he keeps prefacing his fiats with “Let me be perfectly clear…”
    Yes, he is the most transparent of politicians. We can see right through him.
    However, it is translucency – shining the light – that so frightens OBoy.

    • AnneCameo

      It’s been reported by Congress, news media, that the O. administration is the most secret in our history.

  • vidgamenerd

    “misspoke” huh? just like our once great country your newspaper has a problem…. a liberal one. As your ad revenues decline and your cost to the subscriber go up,and the quality of your reporting having been in the toilet since 1993 or 1994; you ignorantly stick to the business model of failure. Cannot wait to see that the NYT has gone bankrupt in a few years..Maybe the Koch Brothers or Rupert Murdoch will buy up the dregs that are left and make the Grey Lady relevant again…….

  • Steve Graham

    I think it is time to say “The Democratic Party” lied… not just Obama.

  • ObamaFail

    So in liberal land if a Republican lies, he lied (which is how we in reality feel as well), if a Republican tells the truth, in liberal land that’s also still considered a lie. But in liberal land, if a Democrat lies, he “misspoke” or “told the truth.”
    And who is Barack Obama and his cronies to tell us “your policies weren’t good enough?” Who the hell does this jerk think he is to tell us what is good for us?

    • ErikandKathy Muller

      Well darn…don’t ya know..He is the president of the USA! I sure as he’ll didn’t vote for him!!

  • neoface

    Of course NYT is a cowardly lapdog, not enough guts to call Obama for what he is. An freaken incessant liar!!!! Looky, all these lapdogs keeps on covering Oblunder’s scandals. At what point do they actually become journalist, rather than political hacks. No one should buy their dishonest paper.

  • Skevvy

    Misspoke, yes. He meant to say, “If I like your plan, I may let you keep your plan.”
    Of course the next line is even more damning, He said, “Nothing in this bill will require you or your employer to change anything.” PERIOD.


    If they would know the horrors that socialism brings, why do they still want to protect Obummer?

  • OldmanRick

    Come on. The spiteful, whiny, snively, sissy snitch, blame everyone else, inept, incompetent, irresponsible, divisive, disingenuous, mean spirited, Marxist puppet, brattish, girly emperor wannabe can add pathological liar to his portfolio of faults.

    • mickeyco

      That should about cover it.

  • Skevvy

    Miss Spoke or Miss Directed? At this point, “What difference does it make?” Notice: When George HW Bush broke his “Read my lips… new taxes.” promise, Republicans/Conservatives abandoned him in droves, but when Obama breaks this promise, Democrats/Liberals will make fools of themselves to defend His “honor”. And Bush only made that pledge once, while Obama repeatedly made His promise. His only defense is He didn’t write it , He was only reading the teleprompter…..

  • Noneya

    Who in their right mind believes Obama is not a liar?

  • FlatFoot

    But… but… the Free Stuff!

  • Bob Beatty

    Come on you guys – Obama didn’t know he had “misspoke” until the rest of us found out from the media. Give the guy a break – how is he supposed to know these things? He is only the President, he has a lot on his plate. “said no-one”

    Odumbo’s hair is getting whiter and his nose is growing by the mile. I guess that’s what happens when you continue to LIE and are caught doing so. As far as the NYT, there whole infrastructure will collapse into itself if it ever admitted that Odumbo lied. Where would it put them….in the same category.

    Obama lied… PERIOD!

      Lie verb
      1: to make an untrue statement with intent to deceive
      2: to create a false or misleading impression

      Misspeak verb
      1: to speak (as a word) incorrectly
      2: to express (oneself) imperfectly or incorrectly

      Which definition describes this “you can keep your plan” issue?

  • James Barrett

    So, basically, we have Obama using the grown up adult version of a ghetto hoodlum claiming to the police, when accused of a crime (AND presented with overwhelming evidence) saying “I din do nuffins!”

    (Seriously, this liar obama needs to be impeached)

  • Frank Priviti

    it’s cjust totally disgusting what they are allowing him to say and do

  • will roberts

    Maybe everyone mis-heard, NYT I believe we have something!

  • Jim Rasmussen

    “clearly misspoke” is liberal dog-whistle-code-words for “pathologically lied”.

  • ErikandKathy Muller

    Give BO a break…he mis-spoke, because he mis-read his teleprompter!

  • LegalizeShemp

    “Clearly misspoke” is Demonrat Party Newspeak for “lied out his rear end”.

  • GulfPundit

  • TheRMSDave

    Did he say “let me be clear” just before he lied? Here is another lie the administration repeats almost weekly: No one is more upset about (insert latest failure of Presidential leadership here) than I am.” Really?! I can show you long lines of people!

  • EyesWideOpen

    Let me be clear. Obama lied. Period.

  • Erin Bullock

    This makes me so STINKING MAD! UGH! I wanted to rip them a new one on their comments on that hideous lying article – insurance plans not worth keeping my @**! I had a plan I was perfectly happy with. I paid high premiums yes, but I am SICK. I USE it. So it follows that I pay more. But now, no thanks to Obamadeath, now my premiums are (slightly) lower, but rather than the $20 copay I had before, now the best I can get is 80/20 AFTER a 10K deductible. Thank you Obamacare. My PPO plan literally kept me alive. And now it’s cancelled, and the closest to it has a $750 premium (over twice what I was paying with NO deductible) AND a $1K deductible. Oh yes, Obamacrap is just wonderful. Misspoke my @**.

  • Siobhan_McCallen

    It’s quite possible he really did misspeak. Thing is, you only get a pass on it if it was accidental. Misspeaking ON PURPOSE is called LYING.

    • Erin Bullock

      He went past the ‘accidental’ phase a long, long time ago. 37 times is not a coincidence.

    Don’t you people understand, Obama supporters do not care if he lies, and he knows that!

    So, either Obama lied to millions of Americans or he’s so damn stupid that he can’t speak competently speak on his “signature piece of legislation.” Those are some great alternatives, huh? 😉

    He never lied, that would imply he knew something about insurance or business. NYT shows it’s lack of knowledge of politicians and politics by saying he merely mis-spoke.

  • APW

    I think the NY Times article is great for us. Their own disingenuous explanation proves their reporting cannot be trusted. They have jumped the shark and can no longer be relied upon. The Times editors will ultimately kill the rag–hoist on their own petard.

    The ‘misspoke’ excuse only works for one, maybe two instances – but the Liar said this several times off a teleprompter- it was a premeditated LIE.
