Oh Obama, why did you lie to me?

I don't understand at all why Obama would claim he didn't campaign on the public option. Stretching it to its most technical meaning, it could be said to be accurate, but it smacks of the kind of doublespeak the GOP turned into an art form. It certainly won't placate any of the critics from the left and it makes him look like just another political hack who thinks the electorate is too stupid, or has too short an attention span to remember.

I'm going to assume that he's as burned out on this debate as any of us are, probably moreso, and just made such a silly mistake out of exhaustion. Mercifully, it will probably blow over during the holiday lull. But I do hope he doesn't do it again soon. Bad strategy.
