PrezBo "Borrows" Survivor Tactics In Campaign

For those that watch the reality show Survivor you may recall an incident from one season where a guy named Johnny Fairplay concocted a story about his grandmother dying to help him move on in the competition. Tell me this story from Byron York about Obama's characterization of his mothers fight with a health insurance company doesn't smack of the same ploy.

A dozen years later, her son turned her ordeal into a campaign pitch for national health care. But the story Obama told, Scott writes, was "abbreviated" -- the abbreviation was to leave out the fact that Ann Dunham had health insurance that paid for her treatment. "Though he often suggested that she was denied health coverage because of a pre-existing condition," Scott writes, "it appears from her correspondence that she was only denied disability coverage."
Obama and Johnny has something else in common. "Promises are like wicker furniture and fat ladies, easily broken."

By any means necessary, it's not just for breakfast anymore.
