Politico Hack: ‘Obama Had to Lie About ObamaCare Because the Public Can’t Handle the Truth’

‘The truth’ according to this turd, is that the public is too stupid to grasp the ‘unpredictable complexities’ of ObamaCare, or the evil profiteers.

Excerpts from Todd S. Purdum’s trope:

.. it’s little wonder that the glaring contrast between the White House’s perpetually optimistic talk about its health care plan — “Try it! You’ll like it!” — and the messy realities of its rollout has sent President Barack Obama’s job approval ratings to all-time lows, and for the first time left the public with a negative view of his honesty in some surveys.

From the start, the plan was more complex and unpredictable than Obama liked to acknowledge, reliant as it was on the profit-driven market forces of the private insurance industry [1], individually regulated in all 50 states. And his strategy for selling it was always based on an unspoken assumption that the public could not tolerate such unpleasant truths. [2]

To be fair, the all-out partisan war to pass the bill, and then to defend it in the courts and Congress, was hardly the time for the president to warn, “This might not work right away, folks.” [3]

… Obama tried a similar — if wordier — mea culpa Thursday with respect to his repeated pledge that people who liked their current insurance plan could keep it, explaining: “There is no doubt that the way I put that forward unequivocally ended up not being accurate. It was not because of my intention not to deliver on that commitment and that promise.” [4]

Newsflash, Purdum:  The ‘rollout’ itself isn’t the fucking problem. The problem is the toxic law itself.  Even the most ardent Obama lap dogs have seen the skyrocketing premiums, the tax increases, the penalties, the loss of their current plans, and the fact that they will be forced into a socialist train wreck.
This harkens back to an Andrew Sullivan piece in Time Magazine, that oozed with indignation over Obama’s ‘dumb’ critics.
You’ll note that Purdum doesn’t specify which people couldn’t tolerate the unpleasant truths, but I’m betting that he’s  referring to the 47%. They really believed all that “Hope and Change” crap.  You could draw them a simple cartoon in crayon, and they still wouldn’t understand the complex and unpredictable nature of unpleasant truths.
Those of us who actually paid attention and read the bill weren’t fooled for a fucking nanosecond.
