CNN's analyst LZ Granderson has defended President Obama's outright lies about Obamacare with some of the most insidious, cynical logic seen in recent years. According to Granderson, the American people have rationalized the health insurance lies fed to them by Obama by rationalizing them this way: "We can deal with the lies that President Obama tells us because we believe in his heart, he has the best interest for the American people."
To his credit, Granderson doesn't try to insult the CNN audience, or host Rosa Flores, by pretending Obama didn't lie. Jay Carney, President Obama and most of the cable news minions who do their bidding continue to try to deceive the American people by saying the President just wasn't thorough enough when telling the American people they could keep their health insurance, even though he knew very well they could not.
No, Granderson admits the President lied, but, according to this Obama sycophant, these lies are just fine by him and the American people:
"He should have been more forthright with how the Affordable Care Act was going to impact the country. But with that being said, all Americans know politicians lie. The question is, which lies can you live with? And, time and time again, Americans have said, 'We can deal with the lies that President Obama tells us because we believe in his heart, he has the best interest for the American people.' Every president is going to lie to you. Every politician is going to lie to you. The question is, which lies can you live with?"
