"The president already has a Nobel Prize for peace," Gowdy said. "I think he's shooting for one in fiction." 

Kelly then asked Gowdy why he thought the President couldn't admit he broke his now-infamous "if you like your plan, you can keep it" promise. Obama defended that promise earlier Monday at an Organizing for Action event, asserting that what he said was "you could keep [your plan] if it hasn't changed since the law was passed."

"I could have sworn he said 'period' at the end of that statement and now he's added a rather lengthy footnote," Gowdy responded, accusing the president of assuming Americans were "stupid enough" to buy the explanation.
