While discussing Obamacare’s individual mandate in Roanoke, Va., today, President Barack Obama said, “If you have health insurance, you’re not getting hit with a tax.” The obvious conclusion is that if you don’t have health insurance, you will get hit with a tax.

Oh Barack, now you’ve tossed Twitter into a tizzy:

And the Obamabots are upset we’re even talking about such a thing! Leave King Barry alone!

Meanwhile, conservatives add a little commentary on Obama’s rhetorical bumbling:

It must be tough for Obama to keep track of all the taxes he wishes he could impose on America  — he said as far back as 2009 that Obamacare was “absolutely not a tax increase.” Even the leftist dimwits at ThinkProgress can’t get it straight. And somewhere orbiting another universe, Donna Brazile has tried and failed to relabel it a “wellness penalty.”  Good luck with that.
