Say all of the negatives things you will about Barack Obama (and I certainly have) but the one thing we can all agree on is that he is a cold and calculating ideologue!
With that said, does it strike anyone else as somewhat curious that despite all of the time and all of the money and all of the warnings from the website creators, this Obamacare rollout was such an abysmal failure?
I know what the naysayers are going to say about that question.
Nay, they will say! Failure is no great surprise because little that this President has done has been competent so why should Obamacare be any exception?
To the naysayers I say that while this is certainly true, the fact remains that as of right now the focus of the conversation about Obamacare has turned to the website failure rather than the failure of the law.
This plays right into the hands of a President who is masterfully skilled at the game of running out the clock on one issue while waiting for some other issue, scandal or cover-up to take its place.
And, as we know, when it does his lapdogs in the media will take their direction from the White House and dutifully turn their collective noses away from Obamacare and onto something else.
Then, by the time this website is fixed (if it ever is) and all of the glitches are ironed out we will be many many months down the road and by then it may unfortunately be too late to do anything about repealing Obamacare.
Then, when it all fails, it will only be time before we are living under a single-payer system, joining our friends across the pond and to our north and doing our best UK/Canada socialized medicine dance.
Don't sell Barack Obama short!
He may be an incredibly bad President but he is nothing if not a Chicago community organizer who knows what he wants and will stop at nothing to get it.
