Who’s up for another Obama broken promise flashback?

If the “you can keep your plan” promise was the lie of the year in 2013, this (via Twitchy and @BaseballCrank) has to win that distinction retroactively for 2008:

More on that here. Like some Obamacare mandates, the president has decided to unilaterally delay indefinitely implementation of that particular promise.

The video version:

This is a related partial transcript and video from 2008 featuring Obama discussing why he’s not a fan of Justice John Roberts:

“John Roberts … I will tell you that, how I’ve seen him operate since he went to the bench confirms the suspicions that I had and the reason that I voted against him. And I’ll give you one very specific instance, and this is not a stump speech [pause for laughter – DP]. One of the most important jobs of, I believe, the Supreme Court, is to guard against the encroachment of the Executive Branch on the power of the other branches. And I think he has been a little bit too willing and eager to give an administration, whether it’s mine or George Bush’s, more power than I think the Constitution originally intended.”

Considering the favor Roberts did Obama and the Dems in 2012’s Obamacare ruling, Roberts’ “flaw” in 2008 turned out to be a feature for Obama in 2012.
