I wondered when the media would finally come out and state it

I wondered when someone in the main stream media was finally come out and say it, President Obama cannot even keep his own themes together when talking about health care reform.

As the Wall Street Journal points out today, we are constantly hearing how bad our health care is in America, the system is broke, yada, yada, yada. Then in the next breath, Obama states...if you like your health care, you can keep it. The President is constantly a contradicting himself and he wonders why Americans are losing faith in him.

Read the WSJ:

He likes to start off explaining our catastrophe of a health system. "What is truly scary—what is truly risky—is if we do nothing," he said in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. We can't "keep the system the way it is right now," he continued, while his critics are "people who want to keep things the way they are."

However, his supporters also want to keep things the way they are. "I keep on saying this but somehow folks aren't listening," Mr. Obama proclaimed in Grand Junction, Colorado. "If you like your health-care plan, you keep your health-care plan. Nobody is going to force you to leave your health-care plan. If you like your doctor, you keep seeing your doctor. I don't want government bureaucrats meddling in your health care."
