That pretty much sums it up to me.

Jackie Mason took a chunk of Obama’s ‘tukhus’ for misleading the public about his signature health insurance overhaul
Jackie Mason, the aging comedian best known for his borscht-belt Jewish schtick, slammed President Obama on Sunday as a compulsive liar who sounds ‘like a maniac in an asylum’ when he talks about health care.
‘He’s saying things that nobody believes,’ said Mason, 82, during an interview broadcast on WABC radio in New York.
‘He was always lying every day of his life. Every time he talks it was a lie. The only time he tells the truth is when you didn’t hear from him.’
Mason took issue with Obama’s repeated pledge that Americans who wanted to keep their health insurance plans would be able to do so even after the Affordable Care Act became law.
The Washington Post has since awarded that promise its dreaded ‘four Pinocchios’ rating, the least-truthful grade its fact-checker offers.
‘This is becoming so ridiculous, that even the biggest liar can’t top himself,’ Mason said of Obama, the conservative World Net Daily website was first to report.
‘He looks at you straight in the face, and tells you that if you want your plan, you got your plan, you keep your plan. Now, a month and a half later, you got no plan, you lost your plan, and he tells you you still got a plan.’
‘It’s such a ridiculous thing,’ he added. ‘The whole country’s walking around wondering if this guy’s really the president of a country. He sounds more like a maniac in an asylum.’
‘If this is a president of a country, how come he’s the only one in America who doesn’t seem to know what’s going on here?’
