In a healthcare town hall meeting in New Hampshire, President Obama made the claim that the AARP had endorsed his healthcare plan. The only problem with that is the AARP hasn’t endorsed any plan yet. The AARP endorsement claim is just another in a long line of “exaggerations” by the President.

Obama AARP endorsement claim

President Obama

Is it possible he just misspoke? Sure. Is it probable that he just misspoke? Not likely. Obama’s AARP endorsement claim is a symptom of a deeper problem with this President. He has a complex that will not allow him to be wrong about anything he wants. The simple fact is he is having a tough time selling the democrats healthcare plan to the American people; he’ll go to great lengths to make it happen. AARP statement:

“While the President was correct that AARP will not endorse a health care reform bill that would reduce Medicare benefits, indications that we have endorsed any of the major health care reform bills currently under consideration in Congress are inaccurate.”

Saying his statements are inaccurate is just a nice way of saying he lied about it. Of course we remember the Caterpillar incident, remember all of the instances of saying one thing in the past and now having a totally opposite position? Political expediency I like to call it. Or should I say, he likes to call it.

Let a Republican change positions and the media swoops in like buzzards on road kill. Obama switches positions ( well he’s actually still denying the first position) and everything is just as it should be.

Make no bones about it, the AARP will probably endorse whatever abomination the democrats end up with. But as for now, the Obama AARP endorsement claim is just a bunch of hogwash; just like the rest of his presidency to date.
