The problem with Obama

Obama in the state of the union address:

[I]n that speech, he said of healthcare, "So instead of re-fighting the battles of the last two years, let's fix what needs fixing and move forward."

But, Obama three days later:

"You may have heard once or twice that this is a job-crushing, granny-threatening, budget-busting monstrosity," he told Families USA, a consumer-oriented healthcare group that gave him an enthusiastic reception.

"That's about how it's been portrayed by opponents. And that just doesn't match up to the reality," he said.

That's the problem with Obama - - he says one thing to general audiences (he'll agree to fix what needs to be fixed), and another to closed groups of supporters (there's nothing wrong with the healthcare bill).

Obviously, he's not telling someone the truth.
