We can add former Bushie Brad Blakeman's name to the list of Obamacare enrollment truthers.

BLAKEMAN: The American people know better. The 7 million was promised, then it was denied that they ever said 7 million, then miraculously, on the last day of registration, they got the exact number they wanted. It wasn't 6.2. It wasn't 5. It wasn't 8. It was 7.1. This is a sham and here's why. If the president was serious about the number and was truthful about the number, you'd follow the Reagan principle, trust but verify. There is no trust in the president, because there's nothing to verify.

No number or verification is going to satisfy them, and even when this latest talking point gets shot down, they'll just move on over to a new one.

Can you help us out?
