WUSSY: ‘60 Minutes’ Reporter Doesn’t Press Obama on Misstatements

Video of the president’s “60 Minutes” comments Sunday that Obamacare was “actually a little more [politically] costly than we had expected” has been making the rounds (below). But what some haven’t noticed are the inaccuracies contained in it. One blog did. Can you pick any?:
Here’s what Gateway Pundit noticed:

- The health care bill was passed before not after the unpopular financial bill.
- Mitt Romney is not currently running for president.
- We’ve never [seen] a bill like this proposed nationally unless you count Hillarycare.
- Obama was pushing the bill for over a year before democrats rammed it through.
- It was the central focus of his first two years in office.
- They didn’t even read the bill.
- Democrats thought it would be more popular by the midterm election.
- His other emergency economic proposals were complete bombs, too.

Reporter Steve Croft didn’t pick up on, or push back regarding, any of the inaccuracies.
