One of the many things that annoy Americans about politicians is their nasty habit of sticking a finger in the wind to see which way the wind is blowing before taking a stand on an issue.
“I have not said that I was a single payer supporter.” — President Obama, at a town hall meeting in New Hampshire this afternoon
And, like this:
“I happen to be a proponent of a single payer universal health care plan.” — Barack Obama, at a Senate campaign rally in 2003
OK, so let me try to understand. President Obama was a supporter of single payer before he was against it? Just like gay marriage equality. Mr. Obama supported it back in Chicago but once he was elected president, he was against it.
