The Background: Appearing on This Week with George Stephanopoulos, Keith Ellison somehow tried to claim that Americans misunderstood Obama's if-you-like-it-you-can-keep-it claim, and that Obama was showing integrity by apologizing to them for their misunderstanding.
You know, I just want to say I think that everything that the President said and did was in pursuit trying to get all Americans health care, so, I think, even though he may have said, if you like your decent insurance, your insurance that works, then you can keep it, I think that people really get that. And when there he, he owned it. He said, 'look man, I, if you misunderstood what I was trying to say, I'm sorry about that.' I think that shows integrity.
