Obama: "I'd never ask the American people to sign off on something w/o knowing the details"

Two days ago, at the end of his regional security "summit" with six Gulf countries, your emperor held a solo press conference.  A reporter asked him if the representatives of the Gulf countries had decided to agree with the deal his administration made, or thought they made, with Iran about nuclear weapons.

Obama replied, “We didn’t have a — a document that we presented to them to sign on the bottom line, will you approve of this nuclear framework deal, because the deal’s not completed. And in the same way that I wouldn’t ask the United States Senate to — or the American people to sign off on something before they’ve actually seen the details of it."

What the hell??  For ol' Bullshit Barry to claim he wouldn't ask "the American people to sign off on something before they've actually seen the details of it" is an astonishing, brazen lie.  The details of the bill that eventually became Obamacare were not only totally unknown to the people, but even to some congress-critters.  Hell, the Democrat who was speaker of the House at the time, Nancy Pelosi, is on video saying "We had to pass the bill to find out what was in it."

Not only were the details not revealed, but they've since been changed something like 20 times by executive decree. 

If one example isn't enough, consider the Pacific trade bill being pushed by ol' Bullshit:  He's refused to reveal a single detail of the proposed bill, and won't even give copies of it to members of congress--they're only allowed to see it in a guarded room, and can't take notes out.

When an administration won't even give congress a copy of the draft, the emperor's claim that he "would never ask the American people to sign off on something before they've seen the details" is pure bullshit.
