Worse than the lie

It's easy to make hay from the fact President Obama lied in saying "If you like your plan, you can keep it."
It's much better to watch the president's allies sweat.
Since it wasn't supposed to be that way.
You are, rather, the embodiment of a movement, Exhibit A in the argument that a new America is taking shape before our eyes. So, the rules and expectations are different for you. No one who has been buoyed by that movement, no citizen of that new America, wants to see you acting like just another president, any more than anyone wanted to see Jackie Robinson strike out or Neil Armstrong stumble while stepping off the lunar lander.
He's stumbled off the ladder and rolling down the hill. With nothing to slow the bad momentum.
