Michelle Obama on Barack: ‘He Keeps His Promises’

ABC’s Barbara Walters did another in a series of sycophantic gushing and fawning interviews with the Obamas Friday.

In the wake of the President’s fallacious claim that people could keep their health insurance plans if they liked them, the most preposterous part of the interview was when Michelle Obama said her husband “keeps his promises” without any pushback from Walters (video follows with transcribed highlights and commentary):

Well into the 20/20 interview, Mrs. Obama said, “He did talk about wanting to help people, and that inspires me and us to think about how we can keep having impact beyond ourselves.”

The President responded, “I did promise her an interesting life.”

This led the First Lady to say, “That he did. And, you know, he keeps his promises.”

Really?

Without a doubt, there are millions of Americans that have lost their insurance as a result of ObamaCare who don’t agree.

But fortunately for Barack and Michelle, Walters didn’t point out this obvious hypocrisy.

Must be nice for a President and his wife to know that they can say whatever they want in an interview with a member of the press and not be challenged – especially when what one of them says is totally ridiculous.
