Obamacare speech, Obama cited Lincoln as his role model for Truth & Honesty, HEH!

The day before Obamacare passed the House, President Obama spoke to Democratic lawmakers about the debate surrounding the so-called Affordable Care Act, and stated: "I was tooling through some of the writings of some previous presidents, and I came upon this quote by Abraham Lincoln: 'I am not bound to win, but I'm bound to be true'..."

Whether Abraham Lincoln actually uttered those words is doubtful; historians say that there is no evidence Lincoln ever uttered the aforementioned statement.

Nevertheless, the President continued on with the, "I'm bound to be true'" theme, and later went on to say: "I noticed that there's been a lot of friendly advice offered all across town. (Laughter.) Mitch McConnell, John Boehner, Karl Rove -- they're all warning you of the horrendous impact if you support this legislation... It turns out that in fact people who like their health insurance are going to be able to keep their health insurance.... People will discover that if they like their doctor, they'll be keeping their doctor..."

Truer words have never been uttered; Honest Abe would be proud of Obama. Heh......

"I am not bound to win, but I'm bound to be true..."
