Low Information Senator

I have understood for years that politicians are power-hungry, irresponsible, ego-driven, and not nearly as bright as the image they like to project.  But some people still seem to trust them, even at times idolize them.  Post-Obamacare, how is that even possible.  Check out this interview with Senator Feinstein.

SCHIEFFER: The president said in the beginning that one thing was that if you liked the health care program you had, you could keep it. We now know there was debate within the administration before he said that as to whether that was actually a promise that could be kept. Should the president not have made that statement?

FEINSTEIN: Well, as I understand it, you can keep it up to the time — and I hope this is correct, but this is what I’ve been told — up to the time the bill was enacted, and after that, it’s a different story.  That part of it, if true, was never made clear.

You have heard the term, "low information voters" but this is the low information Senator.  Either that, or she is the dumbest liar on Earth.  She seems to have no idea what is actually in the most substantial piece legislation she has helped to pass in the last 10 years.  And as spin goes, this has to be the lamest.

    What a weird defense. It seems to say that the words in the claim were the opposite of the truth. It's like: "Pass my anti-gun legislation. Don't worry, if you like your guns, you can keep them. Period. [up to the time the bill is enacted, and after that, it's a different story]". Who would say the [non bracketed] words without an intent to mislead?

  2. Simon Fraser:


    Just like Obama.

  3. Scottvan949:

    Is it really lying if they never understood or even read what they voted on?

  4. Russell Cook:

    [Then Hillary Clinton walks into the room and screams, "What difference does it make?!"]

  5. Joshua Vanderberg:

    Feinstein just strikes me as stupid.

  6. nehemiah:

    So, you could keep your insurance up until the time the law was enacted. So the Prez spoke truth right up until the law passed. The law made him a liar, poor guy.

  7. Nehemiah:

    Very good Russell, well done.

    Plausible deniability.....?

  9. mesaeconoguy:

    Notice the euphemistic doublespeak from the Marxist Schieffer:

    “Should the president not have made that statement?”

    Note how he doesn’t say “Why did the president make this promise when he had at least some knowledge that it probably couldn’t be kept?”

    Feinstein is an offensively stupid socialist. (redundant)
