Flip Flop: Shep Smith vs the White House

And who do you think won this fight? File this one under “Who you gunna believe me, or your lying ears?’ Shep comes dangerously close to losing it on this one. His frustration is understandable. The White House plays fast and loose with facts on a life changing piece of legislation.

OK … just to warm you up … here’s how Shep started his hour segment.

Them, Shep Smith questions White House Deputy Press Secretary Bill Burton, asking him to explain how just one month ago the president said he would sign no bill without US Grade A government insurance. Now, it’s a sliver. It’s a flip says Shep. No, says Phil, it’s not.

Fun with video clips see if you can spot the key Obama phrases used by Bill … “as we’ve always said, let me be clear, and open to new ideas.”  It’s a six minute bite so it will keep you entertained. It’s the swallowing hard on Bill’s part that’s the dead giveaway. Dry mouth. Gulp.

One wonders if these guys understand that it’s their  willingness to play politics with health care … read that other people’s lives … by trying to twist and confuse, that is causing people to reject, not just health care, but the entire Democrat party. Who ya gunna believe them, or your lying ears.

    Whatever Bill Burton exudes should be canned, because it is slipperier than WD-40 or the best silicone spray.  I bet he could stand there and insist that the sun is purple.

     

    Shep should sell window cleaner….

    Obama: “Any plan I sign must include an insurance exchange: a one-stop shopping marketplace where you can compare the benefits, cost and track records of a variety of plans – including a public option to increase competition and keep insurance companies honest – and choose what’s best for your family.”

    Shep summarizes: “Must have…blahblahblahblah…a public option.”

    Is that Shep’s idea of  a gotcha moment?

    Is IF ONLY Obama were strongly endorsing a public option.
