Hey, Obama Said It, Not Me ...

After beating up President Obama for bullshitting about his healthcare plan, I should give him props for being honest in some comments he made Monday:
Would health care reform bring "greater inefficiencies" to the country's health care system?

That's exactly what Obama said Monday when he spoke about health care reform at the Childrens National Medical Center in Washington.

"The reforms we seek would bring greater competition, choice, savings and inefficiencies to our health care system," Obama said in remarks after a health care roundtable with physicians, nurses and health care providers. "And greater stability and security to America's families and businesses."(emphasis added)
How refreshing.

Wait, I've just been handed an update by TtP's crack reporting staff. He's backing away from the comment:
The White House quickly recognized the mistake and inserted a "sic" in the remarks sent to reporters on Monday afternoon.

Josh Earnest, a White House deputy press secretary, said Obama "misspoke" in his remarks.
Ah, well. It was nice while it lasted.
