Of course Obama isn't lying; she merely restructured the question. President Obama is saying that the new plan isn't intended to cover illegal aliens. She pretends that that means Obama is guaranteeing that there will be no illegal aliens getting healthcare under this plan. Well, there's no way that Obama can guarantee that.
It's kind of like how Obama apparently promised that his election would end all racial divisiveness and then we still have racial divisiveness. The pretended promise is set so high as to be impossible for any mortal to live up to.
Then there is this bit.
Liberals never, ever drop a heinous idea; they just change the name. "Abortion" becomes "choice," "communist" becomes "progressive," "communist dictatorship" becomes "people's democratic republic" and "Nikita Khrushchev" becomes "Barack Obama."Hence the title of this post; even the slightest move towards liberalism is, for Ann Coulter and many conservatoids, the equivalent of enacting the entire liberal/leftist/socialist/communist platform. Because then you see we have our foot in the door. You give us an inch and we'll destroy your whole society. Or such is the demented way many conservatives think.
It doesn't matter if liberals start calling national health care a "chocolate chip puppy" or "ice cream sunset" -- if the government is subsidizing it, then the government calls the shots.
Liberals are perhaps too willing to compromise (which is why the Public option seems to be dead) and conservatives are totally unwilling. Or, to put it another way, "The best lack all conviction, while the worst / Are full of passionate intensity."
