Hollywood got there first: AP’s spin about Obamacare *UPDATED*

Here’s the AP, an unofficial arm of the Democrat party, telling us that Obama had to simplify his Obamacare promises to the point of fraud because the American people are too unintelligent and uninformed to deal with the Act’s complexities:

President Barack Obama’s early efforts to boil down an intricate health care law so Americans could understand it are coming back to haunt him, leaving a trail of caveats and provisos in place of the pithy claims he once used to sell the law.

Think about the message implicit in that well-crafted sentence:  How do you sell an “intricate” law to morons (i.e., Americans)?  You lie!

Where have I heard that before?  Oh, I know:

UPDATE: Rich Lowry imagines what Obama would have said if he thought well enough of the American people to tell them the truth.

    Hey at least they’re consistent.  The same argument justifies all the voter fraud they do. In fact scratch a leftist and you’ll find a euro-supremacist (and yes this applies to the minority ones too. They have no problem being a second class citizen if they can make you into a third class citizen).
    Next up “examples” of people who only liked their previous insurance better because they’re racists. Is ingratitude a hate crime?

    Excellent Book, a fatal blow.
    Does it count in the colonel’s defense that at least he did love America?

    We still can’t handle the truth of who defeated America in Vietnam. So that’s not surprising.
