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.

    Dear Friends,

    Here, we see a plain public confession of treason.

    This criminal conduct must not be tolerated. No tyrant ever resigned by request. Hostile alien, Barry Soetoro is neither the actual president nor the cause for the massive calamities and strident insurrection. LIke his many predecessors and cohorts, this bogus president is merely a surrogate for the Kosher Kabal of the Bogus Bank of Credit Fraud. These criminals simply take more money while demanding more bloodshed to empower a Greater Israel.

    Know you not that whose law you obey is your god?

    As it was in 1776, the Current Insurrection by Renegade Public Servants presents a clear and present danger. As it was then and is again now necessary to repel this forceful insurrection. This requires force of arms wielded by Citizen Militia.

    For this reason The Bill of Rights includes the Second Article: “A well regulated militia being necessary for the security of a free state, the right of The People to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.”

    For this reason you will see the surrogate hands of Tyrants reaching to remove the means necessary to secure Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness. Never tolerate this!

      you are a nut!

        Bob Bear: Do you have something to say?

        I see that you wrote: ” Then pay the fine fool, cause we ain’t paying for your health care anymore!”

        Apparently the semi-literate are unable to perceive the actuality of the Current Insurrection.

        Are you able to articulate a meaningful expression of a worthy position?

        The People have arisen to suppress the insurrection that you embrace. It will be imprudent to stand with the insolent Renegade Public Servants bent on the destruction of private wealth and the abrogation of individual Rights.

        It is a fool that surrenders his Eternal Rights in order to gain a temporary benefit. Read the story of Jacob and Esau.

        Samuel Adams, firebrand of the American Revolution declared to those Tories like yourself:

        “If ye love wealth better than LIberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace! We ask not your counsel or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand of these that feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you and may Posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.”

        Americans cannot repent because American will not confess.

          You did!

    2. Doug says:

      You almost made a full post without trashing the Jews.

      1. reinhold says:

        Doug, When discussing the collapse of Christian Civilization it is not possible to exclude world Jewry. This fact is magnified by the abysmal stupidity the Masses. Cleansing the trash from a polluted population is a nasty task to be sure! Thy sputter and whine. The Masses are Asses they wish to remain where they are required to do nothing.

    what a load of horse pucky. perhaps the media will finally stop peddling these lies.

  4. Mike says:

    We are in Alice in Wonderland now. Did anyone see a rabbit? So, what only 5% of the population will lose their insurance big deals he says. It’s like in Nazi Germany so what only Jews are send to the gas chamber rest of the country is ok. This is scary.

    1. bob bear says:

      Interesting how the Facist right wingers in our country are always the first ones to bring up the Nazis!

      1. Mike says:

        Bob Bear, truth is hard to swallow isn’t it axxhole. Nazis and you fascist liberal ideology have a lot in common.

        1. bob bear says:

          look in the mirror and you’ll see the axxhole!

    CBS should be looking inward after their 60 mins. story attacking Obama on Benghazi which turned out to be a lie, now they’re trying to get people to believe insurance companies never canceled policies before!
    Does CBS tell you what the Republican plan is, they can’t because there isn’t one!
    My family had our policy canceled 5 years before Obama care became law! Obamacare didn’t start cancellations!
    Now with Obamacare our policy limits have been raised to unlimited, we got back a rebate check the last 2 years because Obamacare restricts Corporate profits, and we don’t have to worry about losing our policy if we get sick!
    And we are sick of paying for freeloaders who have no insurance, which was the Republican way before Obamacare!
    Anyone with a brain knows Obamacare is the Republican health care plan supported by the right wing Heritage Foundation in the late 90’s! But after millions in campaign donations from the health care industry, which allowed unprecedented increases in health care costs during the early 2000’s while Republicans owned DC, Republicans did nothing but take the millions in donations!
    Now Republicans state thousands are losing their insurance, but ignore the millions they kept from getting health care with Republican governors opting out of Obamacare!
