Meacham: Americans ‘Not as Slow’ as Obama Thinks They Are

by Andrew Johnson

President Obama should think twice before trying to pull a fast one on the American people, according to historian Jon Meacham. 

After the president tried to add an addendum on Monday to his promise that if you like your health-care plan, you can keep it (he told a crowd, “What we said was you can keep it if it hasn’t changed since the law passed”), Meachem charged that the president is acting “as if we weren’t quite bright enough” to know what he originally said. He warned that the president needs to “really understand that we’re really not as slow as he thinks we are” and that the public will see through his attempts to modify his misleading promise.
