Communications Director for the White House Office of Health Reform Linda Douglass bemoans in her rebuttal (awkwardly and without explanation entitled “Facts Are Stubborn Things”…what does that even mean?!) to the video I posted yesterday that the president’s words about the Stalinization of health care were (all together now) “taken out of context” but then provides no context to make her point.
I had a great idea this morning when I saw this pathetic attempt at hand-waving by the White House: If they’re bitching about Obama being taken out of context, why not just show the context? If the White House wasn’t willing to do so, one could probably presume it’s because the “context” is even more damning. Well, one would be right:
Facts may be stubborn, but the man’s words are even more so, eh, Ms. Douglass?

OH, ONE MORE THING: I forgot to mention (the lies sometimes fly by so fast, I have a hard time keeping up), that, although she may not find it to be within her job description, does the GentleCommunicationsDirectorLady wish to explain the “context” in which Barney Frank (at about 1:11) and Congresswoman Jan Schwakowsky (starting at 1:17, and whose support for the Stalinization of health care only grows more emphatic as her segment continues) both offer basically their full-throated endorsement of a government take-over of the health care industry? Considering the president has farmed out the actual writing of and direction for HIS health care proposal to Congress, perhaps they’re the ones who sholud also be asked to clarify their own statements (as if it weren’t clear already).
As a refresher, here’s that video again:
