Rep. Keith Ellison (D-CAIR) : Obama showed ‘integrity’ by apologizing to anyone who ‘misunderstood’ his promise...
“He owned it,” Ellison told a panel that included U.S. Rep. Tom Cole, R- Okla., who chuckled at his remark.
“He said, look man, if you misunderstood what I was trying to say, I’m sorry about that,” Ellison said. “I think that shows integrity. He didn’t do anything to self-promote.”
Ellison misquoted the president as saying, “If you like your decent insurance that works, you can keep it.” Which is tweaking what Obama actually said: “If you like your health insurance plan, you can keep it. Period.”
Try as they might, there’s no amount of spin that can erase “period.” Period.
