Obama If You Like Your Doctor

By now the statements are legion.

You can keep your doctor and your insurance plan if you want to.  Guaranteed.

It was more of a “lie” than George W. Bush’s statements regarding Iraq having WMD stockpiles, which were in reliance on faulty intelligence that most Democrats and others in the world believed too.

Obama No Negotiation Press Conference 1

Press conference now over. If you missed it, you missed one of the most demeaning, pejorative performances I’ve ever seen by any President. I say “one of” because it’s possible there’s a more snide performance I’ve forgotten.

But today was memorable.

Just more of the eliminationist rhetoric about ransoms and extortion and so...

Any guesses?

Basically what was expected.  The 2012 election was about Obamacare, he won, we lost, it’s done, move on.  The election was about Obamacare?  Actually, it was about everything except Obamacare:

As of this writing, it’s unclear where things stand.

There is a vague offer by Vladimir Putin agreed to by Syria to turn over chemical weapons, but Russia opposes a binding U.N. resolution to that effect and the details are to be worked out. Putin also insists that the U.S. agree...

Not the indecision and delayed decision about the use of force in Syria.

The Golf immediately after the Rose Garden statement.

Right after shipping responsibility for authorizing an attack on Syria, President Barack Obama returned to his comfort zone: The golf course.

I headed off to JFK Airport for my trip to Israel on Friday not long after Obama gave his surprise speech on the Florida jury verdict finding George Zimmerman not guilty of Second Degree Murder and Manslaughter in the killing of Trayvon Martin.

The presidential statement elevated the Martin case to a historic...

Politico hasn’t been this excited since Herman Cain.

Looking at the tweets from attendees at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner was nauseating enough.

Obama’s speech was fine, he had some good one liners and some cheap shots, but it certainly wasn’t the funniest speech ever:

I just heard Jonah Goldberg make reference to it on Special Report with Bret Baier.

No need to watch Obama’s inaugural speech.

Text is here.

Same old, same old straw men, platitudes, and ode to big government and collectivism:
