attack from the White House. Unmasking the joker isn't something they take kindly to.
Need more proof? A recent column by CeCi Connolly in the Washington Post:
Administration officials have also begun whispering a phrase used during the presidential campaign, speaking of putting the nation on a "glide path" to universal coverage rather than the insurance-for-all trumpeted by many Democrats. Though few remember, Obama never promised coverage to all 47 million uninsured Americans. A slower, phased-in attempt to cover everyone would help reduce the cost of legislation.The White House is trying to say that the clips above give an untruthful impression of Obama's views. We're not supposed to believe Obama in 2007 or 2003 but somehow we are supposed to believe him now?
"A bill that gets us on a glide path is a win," said one Democratic strategist who recently visited the White House and spoke on the condition of anonymity because he is not authorized to comment on administration strategy.
