On Wednesday’s broadcast of FNC’s “The O’Reilly Factor,” comedian and radio talk show host Dennis Miller reacted to the pitfalls President Barack Obama has faced in recent days due to his 2010 health care reform act, riffing off of Obama’s broken “if you like your health insurance, you can keep it” promise.
Miller said in his view, he hoped Obama had been misleading Americans in the push for Obamacare because otherwise it would indicate a degree of ineptness.
“The only wealthy guy I talk politics with is you,” Miller said. “So you would have to tell me. I will say this. This thing has got so crazy that the Rev. [Jeremiah] Wright lost his health care today and blamed the Jews. Listen, I don’t talk about politics with my friends because, you know what? Obama — Barack Obamas are a dime a dozen — debonair grifters, man. The good friends — they’re hard to come by. I will say this about Obamacare — I hope at this point Barack Obama is simply a liar because, if he is this inept, you and I are Gary Lockwood and Keir Dullea way out past Jupiter with a defective Hal 9000 unit, my friend. We are screwed, and I would like to get home, all right?”
