NYT: Obama's Health Insurance Lie an 'Incorrect Promise'

The New York Times has now decided that President Obama’s lie about Americans being able to keep their health insurance wasn’t a lie at all – instead, it was an “incorrect promise.” That’s the language Times reporters Michael D. Shear and Robert Pear used in describing Obama’s big fib in their Tuesday piece, “Obama in Bind Trying to Keep Health Law Vow.”

The reporters did point out that Obama apologized for “wrongly assuring Americans that they could retain their health plans if they wanted,” but then labeled that wrongful assurance an “incorrect promise on health care coverage.”

An incorrect promise is sort of like a “white Hispanic” – a phrase made up by the media in order to reach a predetermined political endpoint. There are those of us in the real world who label an “incorrect promise” what it is: a lie. And then there is The New York Times.

An incorrect promise?  Is that sort of like a big loser, a jumbo shrimp, a kinder and gentler war, actually being for something before being against it?  "What difference can it make now" what the term is?
Abraham Lincoln:

There is no grievance that is a fit object of redress by mob law.
--January 27, 1838 Lyceum Address

Don't interfere with anything in the Constitution. That must be maintained, for it is the only safeguard of our liberties. And not to Democrats alone do I make this appeal, but to all who love these
great and true principles.
--August 27, 1856 Speech at Kalamazoo, Michigan

Let us then turn this government back into the channel in which the framers of the Constitution originally placed it.
--July 10, 1858 Speech at Chicago

Or the 'least untruthful answer' a la James Clapper.

It's the new normal...
