"But frankly, [Obama] should never have said as much as he did, that if you like your current health care plan, you can keep it. That wasn’t true. And you shouldn’t lie to people. And they just lied to people."
- Former Congressman Barney Frank (D-MA), July 2014
It’s good, don’t get me wrong, but they left off a few of my favorite Obama cliches, some of which are straw men, some of which are rhetorical crutches: “We inherited these problems”; “the alternative is to do nothing”; “Let me be clear”; “Can’t get distracted by . . .”; and finally, “As you know, I’ve consistently said,” usually used when announcing a change in position.
The presser starts at 8 PM ET. I won’t be watching it, but in the event that you are, please feel free to use this thread to discuss it.
