"... and what you've done and that you're an open book,".
Heading toward the November elections, the federal health care plan will likely be a major issue. In New Hampshire, the state has sent back federal money intended to set up insurance exchanges, and it's likely that the state will opt out of funds for Medicaid expansion out of fear that after the federal government stops picking up the tab, the state will go bankrupt.
But Obama said those fears are wrong.
"They're wrong, first of all, because the federal government picks up the tab for a long time," Obama said. "Second of all, when it comes to the exchanges, all we are talking about is putting together a pool where people who don't have health insurance can get the same kind of bargain that those of us who work with big companies do, which will benefit a lot of folks in New Hampshire."
The president also put pressure on his presumptive opponent, Republican Mitt Romney, to disclose his financial records involving overseas accounts.
"What's important is if you are running for president is that the American people know who you are and what you've done and that you're an open book," he said. "And that's been true of every presidential candidate dating all the way back to Mitt Romney's father."
That's pretty ballsy, pretty galling, coming from a guy who most are now finally learning isn't who he proclaimed himself to be leading up to the election in 2008.
Hot Air summarizes things for us with appropriate links:
Oh, I don’t know. I suspect America’s willing to elect a guy who takes liberties with his personal narrative; who refuses to disclose certain basic details of his education; who’s cultivated an image as a “blank screen” onto which people can project their own aspirations; and who as president has battled to keep documents secret that might reveal the inner workings of a scandal that resulted in a U.S. Border Patrol being killed.
Don’t you think?
Many who think have seen who this guy is from the get go.
Those who emote, not so much.
