The world spins out of control. The crazies press the accelerator. It gets more difficult to understand what people are saying. Panic makes for dull thinking and thick tongues. Loss of control morphs into psychotic episodes provoking group disassociation.
In an honest effort to understand, may I ask: do I have this straight? Recently, the president, in full CYA mode, said he sees the problem, he is sorry for the misunderstanding, to address the confusion he will move to allow you to keep your insurance. Then people said he does not have that authority, about the same time insurance companies said ‘no deal’ even as Oprah blamed in all on racism. She announced from Great Britain she has found 8 conservatives who hate Obama’s guts and all of them are to blame for Obama’s troubles. In typical fashion, reporters simply asked for new cars.
Concurrently, there was the ridiculous presidential press conference: 99% ‘answers’ and 1% questions. Beyond embarrassing to the point of being a national humiliation, the press conference accomplished higher disapproval ratings, more confusion, more ‘misunderstanding.’ (It’s remarkable how statements like ‘let me be perfectly clear’ tend to muddy the waters as the misunderstandings pile up.) Thank goodness for distraction relief coming from Incognito and the Mayor of Toronto! (CYA)
Then, the Queen of Crazy Sheila Jackson Lee rushed in to help. She insisted insurance companies should not have canceled policies. She said private insurers should have been promoting the exchanges. (CYA) When told that was not their job, she called them racists. When informed the website was down, she blamed the KKK. According to business guru Sheila, insurers should have shown their appreciation for being repeatedly screwed by the feds. According to Sheila they should have shown their appreciation by recommending a fed screwing to their customers. No doubt Sheila’s constituents will show her their appreciation in short order.
Today, having spent many days condemning health insurance CEOs, the president met with them, begging them to help him by asking them to do the impossible: restore five million canceled policies in 22 days. Certainly, they reminded the president ObamaCare demanded those policies be canceled. (No one is bothering Sheila with the facts.) Today, the House passed a bill to do what the president said he wants to do but can’t do or isn’t authorized to do, and he promised to veto it, begging the question, why ask the insurers anything? (CYA)
There is a Democrat version of what the House passed pending in the Senate, if King Harry approves. It too suggests restoring policies, to dream the impossible dream, and it too meets with disfavor from on high for one simple reason. Attempts to un-ring the bell will eviscerate ObamaCare. Perhaps it’s time to bring Dr. Death in to accelerate the spiral. A growing majority believes the only treatment option left is assisted suicide. The trouble is Dr. Death is too busy defending the indefensible by shouting down people on Fox News. (CYA) They say by spring there will be 15 million newly uninsured. Rationed care? How about No Care?!
Meanwhile, some Democrat genius (Biden?) actually said today that the way to fix ObamaCare is passing immigration reform. That rabbit trail (CYA) is not even worth considering since reform is about as dead as creative intelligence in D.C. In other news, tuberculosis is spreading, thanks to non-citizen residents clustered together in vans, box cars and labor camps. Now, even those poor souls will be without healthcare. Certainly the solution is encouraging more lawlessness, more poverty, more entitlements and more false hope driven by broken promises and outright deception. It is a BFD Joe!
Earlier this week the IT guys had no answers about the dysfunctional website, and the president said ‘nobody told me.’ (CYA)
Mr. Obama, has anyone told you the Egyptians have charged you with crimes against humanity in the international criminal court, the Republicans are moving to impeach your attorney general, the Iranians are about to blow up the Middle East, most people think you are an incompetent liar, the Benghazi and IRS investigations proceed, and your Democrat pals are jumping ship?
Maybe it’s time to MoveOn, meet with Valerie, and discuss the farm bill. Perhaps that will salvage your spinning legacy. Whatever you do, stay away from Gettysburg. Lincoln wants nothing to do with you at this point. Well, at least you still have the youth vote.
