It's amazing this hasn't been posted to ATS yet. After attempting 5 different search arguments to make sure, here it is.

Greetings
This was published in the New Yorker on Nov 16, '13

The article is short, so, in keeping in compliance with ATS policies of not quoting an entire web page, the quote is reduce to the key points in hussein's Official Statement.

It appears that hussein lost his temper at a recent press conference.


telling the stunned press corps, "You know what? Everybody can keep their damn insurance."



"You know, I really wish I hadn't spent the last three years of my life on this thing. I should've just gone around invading countries for no reason. That would've made everybody happy.



Well, guess what: I'll make their day and repeal it myself. Really, it's my pleasure. But I swear that this is the last time I try to do something nice for anybody."

I'm pretty sure this is a fake news story. It's gotta' be.
Obama is an idiot and bad for America IMHO .... but I haven't seen him melt down like this.

ETA .. I expect this'll be in the LOL forum soon ... I'd be surprised if it's not.

I wish someone had that on tape because I would really like to believe he said that. This is one person's report on what was said. However, I do believe that Obama would be having a hissy fit and acting like a baby when he doesn't get his way. The ACA is a joke anyway and he is not happy everyone is not so gullible anymore.

Maybe the reason why it hasn't been posted is because it's satire.

Obama Says Americans Can Keep Their Damn Insurance



The article below is satire. Andy Borowitz is an American comedian and New York Times-bestselling author who satirizes the news for his column, "The Borowitz Report."




aced with a barrage of new questions about the Affordable Care Act, President Obama cut short a White House press conference today, telling the stunned press corps, "You know what? Everybody can keep their damn insurance." Glaring at the reporters, the President continued, "You heard me. If your insurance is crappy, then you just go ahead and keep it-the crappier, the better. Let's pretend this whole thing never happened."


Sorry but you fell for an article that's about as accurate as an article by the Onion.

It is from the "Bowowitz report" section, which is described as "a satirical news column".

Dunno. You may be correct. The scholars and subject matter experts of this, the ATS website, have the information resources to determine that. It was re-quoted on some websites.

Wow,
Thanks for fast replies.

This goes to reinforce the quick expertise right here on ATS.

I should have posted it quietly to selected ATS members before doing it out in the open.
Oh well.

Dear Moderator, you might see fit to move this to off topic.
Thanks

"Maybe you should read your link.


Yes I did, Yes, Yes, but I read it TOO LATE.

I expect disciplinary action to be forthcoming.

I recommended the moderator move this message thread. I have no admin rights to do so.
