Misspeaking is something you do once, extemporaneously. Continually saying the same mistruth to mislead people…that’s lying:


“No matter how we reform health care, we will keep this promise to the American people: If you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor. Period. If you like your health care plan, you’ll be able to keep your health care plan. Period. No one will take it away, no matter what.” — Pres. Barack Obama to the American Medical Assn., June 15, 2009. [emphasis mine]

“And if you like your insurance plan, you will keep it. No one will be able to take that away from you. It hasn’t happened yet. It won’t happen in the future.” — Pres. Obama, April 1, 2010.

“If you like your plan, you’ll be keeping your plan. No one’s taking that away from you. Three months from now, six months from now, you’re gonna look around, be sitting in your doctor’s office, reading the old people magazines, you’ll be saying, ‘Hey, same doctor. Same plan. It wasn’t Armageddon.'” — Pres. Obama, Sept. 25, 2010.

“I want to speak plainly, clearly, honestly about what (ObamaCare) means for you and the people you care about. Let’s start with this fact that even before the Affordable Care Act fully takes effect, about 85% of Americans already have health insurance either through their job, through Medicare or through the independent market. [Emphasis mine — these are three words I’m not sure Dear Leader knows the meaning of. SR]

“So, if you’re one of these folks, it’s reasonable you might worry whether healthcare reform is gonna create changes that are a problem for you, especially when you’re bombarded by all sorts of fear-mongering. So, the first thing you need to know is this: If you already have healthcare, you don’t have to do anything.” — Pres. Obama, Sept. 26, 2013. [Emphasis mine — particularly when that what it is going to do…]
