    “I happen to be a proponent of a single payer universal health care program. I see no reason why the United States of America, the wealthiest country in the history of the world, spending 14 percent of its Gross National Product on health care cannot provide basic health insurance to everybody. And that’s what Jim is talking about when he says everybody in, nobody out. A single payer health care plan, a universal health care plan. And that’s what I’d like to see. But as all of you know, we may not get there immediately. Because first we have to take back the White House, we have to take back the Senate, and we have to take back the House.” BHO

    Apparently, this statement was taken out of context and Obama does not advocate a single payer system.

    WASHINGTON (AP) — The White House is turning to the Internet to hit back at a Web posting that claims to show President Barack Obama explaining how his health care reform plans eventually would eliminate private insurance.

    The three-minute White House video features Linda Douglas, a former network television correspondent and now White House Office of Health Reform communications director, sitting in front of a computer screen showing the Drudge Report Web site. That site carries a series of video clips from another blogger who strings together selected Obama statements on health care to make it appear he wants to eliminate the private health insurance business.

    In the video Douglas says the site is "taking sentences and phrases out of context, and they're cobbling them together to leave a very false impression."

    In related news, the Whitehouse also announced that The One was quoted out of context regarding not raising taxes on people who make less than 250k.

    "What he really said was 'I will not raise taxes for those making less than 250,000 a year to pay for my <A href="http://features.csmonitor.com/politics/2009/01/15/obamas-new-limo-ugly-but-it-can-fend-off-asteroids/">Pimp New Ride</a>. But you can bet your [butt] that we're going to tax the snot out of the middle class for everything else. WTF should all the money be given to the people lucky enough to have jobs? The people who don't have jobs deserve money just as much as those lucky Winners in Life's Lottery. I am going to spread the wealth like you've never seen

    "Strangely, this last part was conviently removed from the public record, no doubt part of a Vast Right Wing Conspiracy to keep the black man down."

    Whoops. This release hasn't happened yet, guess it's been rescheduled for a few days from now.

  5. Bush had an awesome first pitch...but lets not blame Bush for a girly Obmama.
     
  6. A bunch of red necks on this forum. Who gives a damn how the president throws a ball? If you wanted a pitcher as president you should have created "draft Kenny Rogers" movement.

    Regarding context, as long as you keep in mind that BO's a lying Commie you will never get him out of context...
