Piers Morgan once said "a lot of things are just perfect about Barack Obama," but now the President is in the liberal CNN host's doghouse. According to Morgan's repeated comments on his Friday night show, the President's credibility had been completely shredded.
"I find it very difficult, this ObamaCare thing. When I see the repeated footage of him standing there saying, you can keep your doctor, you can keep your plan, just telling it outright porky pie to the American public, I don't like it. It's not the Barack Obama that I expected," Morgan lamented. [Video below the break.]
The liberal CNN host argued to Democratic guest Howard Dean that Obama's lies were repeated and premeditated:
"It wasn't, Howard Dean, like he just said it once and it was a slip of the tongue, he said it repeatedly. He went on and on and on and on telling the American people, 'you can keep your plan, you can keep your doctor.' He must have known that neither of those things was true and he must have known the reason he was selling it was to sell his program."
Obama's "credibility problem" is undermining his campaign message of transparency, hope, and change, Morgan added:
"Here is the problem. It's the President's credibility. You know, when I watch the video mashup of him just saying endlessly to the American people two complete falsehoods, it is very damaging because you want to believe that guy, that's why he got elected."
Later in Friday's program, Morgan ripped the ObamaCare rollout: "I'm not happy with him, alright? Because I think this ObamaCare thing has been an unmitigated disaster."
And Morgan insisted that he is "very, very angry":
"But you can be like me on this, though, Harvey. You can you be supportive of the principle of ObamaCare, which I am. Coming from a country that has universal healthcare for all. You can support that but you can also be irritated by the rollout failing because it may kibosh the whole thing. But you can also be very, very angry that the President lied.
