The ever-morphing albatross that is Obamacare continues to fail spectacularly. It changes its colors and mutates like a deadly fungus. As they say, if I don't laugh, I'll cry.
A few days ago, amidst much fanfare and pom-pom waving by an obsequious press, the Obama administration announced that 7.1 million people had signed up for Obamacare by the "deadline" (it was a deadline like a lace curtain is an iron wall). Even someone who doesn't keep up on the news knows that 7.1 million figure is a blatant fallacy coming from the same liars who claim inflation is only 1.5 percent and the recession ended in 2009.
First of all, this piece of garbage passed by Congress in March 2010 has already been revised an incredible 38 TIMES! It literally is a nonstop chameleon. Millions of the people who supposedly enrolled in this hideous metamorphosis are really Medicaid enrollees -- perhaps as many as 4 million of them. Millions more already had health insurance and are signing up under this program because their policies were canceled and they don't want to be slapped with a fine. Many of them had better insurance before Obamacare (lower premiums, a greater choice of providers) but are simply going along to get along.
Aside from all of that, 7 million people is just a drop in the bucket when you are talking about 325 million Americans. Would the brain-dead press PLEASE point out the absurdity of this euphoria? This is all part of the endless cheerleading and utter lack of critical thinking that has brought us to our knees.
To say Barack Obama is a fraud and a tool is simply too cliche. Let's dig a little deeper. He's so narcissistic, so arrogant and so delusional, he is incapable of humility, unable to be deferential or admit that one of his precious ideas didn't quite pan out as he'd hoped. He is so utterly lacking in empathy or self-awareness, he just keeps digging himself deeper and deeper, obtuse to the carnage around him.
It seems to be an unwritten maxim that those who think they are failures or have only modest accomplishments to speak of often have done great things, while those whose heads are puffed up with hubris frequently have been miserable failures, their works nothing but detritus strewn across the roadside. Case in point: The Chicago community organizer; the collectivist-in-chief whose wondrous aspirations, Ivy League credentials and ivory tower idealism have been crushed by that monstrous force known as reality.
It is so much more enjoyable and ego-stroking for this man-child to smugly insult the tens of millions of people who know we're on the wrong track and suffering because of it.
The people -- many of whom live in the dreaded "flyover country" -- who know that improving our admittedly flawed pre-Obamacare healthcare system did not need to be costly, disruptive and chaotic.
The people who have a sense of self-restraint when it comes to the federal government and what it can accomplish when dealing with complex, multi-faceted systems such as health care.
In recent weeks the O-man has repeated his charge that Republicans have an "ideological fixation" with Obamacare. Ideological fixation??? Pot, meet kettle. There aren't enough hours in the day to describe the number of issues on which Obama and his leftist brownshirts hold "ideological fixations."
Listen, Mr. President. No one ever accused you of being stupid. Off-the-charts-arrogant and stubborn-as-a-mule leftist, yes. But stupid, no.
Consider this: If a left-winger like Jimmy Fallon is mocking you, the game is up. Believe it or not, the American people might actually like you a bit more if you would admit you've made some mistakes, show a little humility and resolve to clean up the mess you've made.
...SIGH.... I'm not holding my breath....
