CBS’ Major Garrett lays into Obama at ‘Obamacare fix’ press conference

CBS New Chief White House correspondent Major Garrett brought the entire Obamacare fiasco into focus at Thursday’s noon press conference when he asked the president if he had any regrets making his repeated promise, “Of you like your present plan, you can keep it — period.”

You said while the law was being debated, if you like your plan, you can keep it. You said after the law was implemented or signed, if you liked your plan, you can keep it. Americans believed you, sir, when you said that to them over and over.

Do you not believe, sir, the American people deserve a deeper, more transparent accountability from you as to why you said that over and over when your own statistics published in the Federal register alerted your policy staff — and I presume you — to the fact that millions of Americans would, in fact, probably fall into the very gap you’re trying to administratively fix right now?

You were informed, or several people within this building were informed, two weeks before the launch of the website that it was failing the most basic tests internally, and yet a decision was made to launch the web site on October 1st. Did you make that, and if so, do you regret that?

Watch the president’s response below.


Mistakes, missed deadlines and wrong predictions can be forgiven — they’re a part of human nature. Presidential lies of this caliber cannot be forgiven because they tear at the very fabric of trust we expect from government.

    Boy! He sure is a smooth talker.He is still an ass.I wouldn’t trust him any farther then I could throw him

    • Press Watchusa

      If he was a smooth talker
      -
      You wouldn’t realize it
      -
      Therefore – he is just a LIAR!

  • Jimmy Midgett

    More lies. Why do even bother to listen to this man?

  • SuburbanMan

    He has perfected the ability to talk around and around and around, burn up the clock and NEVER give a succinct answer. “It’s on me.” Cute on the bball court, not the President of the United State’s answer.

    • francoamerian

      He has made Bill Clinton’s denials about Monica Lewinsky look like child’s play. Clinton is an angel compared to this lying scrotum sack.

      • bob bear

        Clinton, Obama, forgot the guy in the middle who lied us into Iraq costing us 3000 lives and 2 trillion dollars! Its called convenient memory for ignorant people to be manipulated!

        • francoamerian

          Guess what Bob, I didn’t like Bush either. However, Bush did love the US. He was a patriot. Obama loves the Muslims because he is one. He insults our true friends and helps our enemies.

        • francoamerian

          Yeah, how about the lie he (Bush) said about weapons of mass destruction that no one could find. The people of Syria seemed to have found out what happened to those weapons.

      • Doug

        Now you didn’t always feel that way.

        • francoamerian

          No. I just started feeling that about a minute ago.

  • patriot1742

    Since when does a president make law, change law or repeal law – AFA needs to be dumped.

    • Troof Detector

      Since Obama was selected to office!

      • patriot1742

        That is scary to think that there is a group that would do that to this country – the low information voter just wants the freebies.

        • bob bear

          Stupid, 90% of Welfare goes to the rich in tax breaks, subsidies, etc.!

          • patriot1742

            Bob Bear – please go to GAO – there is a chart there that shows where all money spent is listed – by far Social Security and Social Programs make up almost 89% of the the total money spent – the rich tax breaks are a myth.

          • francoamerian

            Bob, you are what’s called a low information voter. In case you are from Rio Linda,CA that is someone who believes any and everything Obama spews out of his lying piehole. People who don’t want to work and people who want the hard working taxpayers to support them love Obama. He promises them something for nothing. He even lied about that. He told people they could have Obamacare health insurance and it would cost them little to nothing. Guess what? It costs them even more for less insurance. If you get Obamacare don’t forget, you can now have maternity benefits in case you ever get pregnant. LMFAO!

      • bob bear

        Really bothers you that you’ll never vote for another President who will win!

  • Lucktoday

    Obama takes responsibility now that nothing can happen to him. He’s so full of crap his eyes are brown.

  • Doomedfuzz

    People already LOST their plans, they are not going be reinstated, come on. And we have now kicked this past the next election, just sick as sad. And this whole explanation about when you get sick you lose your plan? That’s BS too, my wife had a tumor on her spinal cord and we didn’t lose out plan, and this was while Obama was in office. Lies, lies, lies and more BS.

  • Press Watchusa

    IRS AUDIT for the MAJOR

  • Press Watchusa

    It required a simple YES or NO answer!
    -
    He said NOTHING in 5 minutes!

  • doximom

    Anybody believe any one word he said? Liar, liar, liar!

    • bob bear

      No I don’t believe you!

  • Diana Smith

    Once again he pulls the old “I wasn’t aware” BS. What a lying dog. How in the name of God did anyone actually vote for this criminal?

    • copperpeony

      BECAUSE no one actually took the time to investigate his past, his fraudulent SS# number, his fraudulent college records and his fraudulent birth certificate.

      HE HAD BLACK SKIN. That was good enough for the politically correct media and kool-aid drinkers.

      Pay the piper you cretins that voted for him!!

      • bob bear
