Despite having had seven years to come up with a working solution to the wrecked junker that is ObamaCare, Congressional Republicans choked when practice became reality. This was something that I feared would happen though, so I’m at least not shocked by it.
Removing May Take Longer Than We Thought
Please understand, however, that I always knew that the process of repealing and possibly replacing ObamaCare would be exact that, a process. I also truly do understand that it will be what most of us would consider a long and painful process.
The Democrats, quasi-led and certain sheltered by their precious token, Obama, made sure that ObamaCare would be nigh on impossible to repeal. It’s octopuslike – some would say Cthuhluian – tentacles stretch around and strangle the entirety of our nation healthcare and health insurance systems. That’s a hard thing to remove at a stroke.
Still though, the GOP has had seven freaking years to come up with a treatment plan. So far, going by their first effort – if one can call it that with a straight face, all that time for practice has been wasted.
The ironically – or Orwellian – name Affordable Care Act (ACA) aka Obama is and was from its inception a failure- a fail of care and a failure on the part of Democrats to care about the consequences of their actions. Hellfire and their damnation! It was a failure on their part to even read the omnibus bill before forcing it into law and upon the American people.
It Just Needs A Few Minor Tune-Ups
This failure resulted in a new “healthcare system” that was broken, that needed more than minor fixes to work even so well as what America had before – despite all of Obama’s tap-dancing and the Congressional Democrats’ dissembling. ObamaCare needed to be sent to the proverbial scrapyard and, in theory, replaced with something that could actually work in America.
Over the course of the intervening seven painful years, it seemed that Congressional Republicans understood this.
There! Better Than New
Sadly for we, the People, seeming isn’t being. What the GOP seems to think are fixes for ObamaCare are, in my opinion, merely a hodgepodge of removals of various components and restrictions within the ACA with – once again – a failure to care about the consequences of their actions. No, instead of the promised “Repeal and Replace,” the American Health Care Act (AHCA) aka RyanCare is little more than a shade tree patch job of ObamaCare and a bad one at that.
“Laughing Joe” certainly was feisty and entertaining though. The Vice President’s chuckles, sighs, interruptions, and odd asides during the debate with Rep. Paul Ryan really stole the show, something that was not predicted to happen.
The two biggest problems with Obama are that he is nothing better than a narcissistic, petulant, little boy and that he’s utterly incapable of speaking the truth if doing so won’t perfectly serve his purposes, which are completely centered upon the image of himself he’s spent a lifetime creating.
Despite that being common knowledge it’s still amazing how much he and his cronies are decompensating as we near the 2012 elections.
It beggars credulity that Obama’s deputy campaign manager Stephanie Cutter would say that the terrorist attack at the US Consulate in Benghazi that killed four Americans was only important because Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan talk about the attack.
STEPHANIE CUTTER: In terms of the politicization of this — you know, we are here at a debate, and I hope we get to talk about the debate — but the entire reason this has become the political topic it is, is because of Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan. It’s a big part of their stump speech. And it’s reckless and irresponsible what they’re doing.
BROOKE BALDWIN: But, Stephanie, this is national security. As we witnessed this revolution last year, we covered it–
CUTTER: It is absolutely national security–
BALDWIN: –it is absolutely pertinent. People in the American public absolutely have a right to get answers.
When one takes into account that the Campaigner-in-Chief’s deputy – and whatever other positions she might be in under Obama – claims come not long after Obama had already politicized the Muslim terrorist attacks, this is essentially a “nuanced” admission that the Obama Regime didn’t and still doesn’t care about these Muslim terrorist attacks except in how they might effect the boy keeping his job a few years longer.
Obama Foreign Policy – Leading From Behind
Yeah, Obama’s foreign policy of “Leading From Behind” has run into few “bumps in the road.” Sadly, those bumps were the mutilated corpses of Americans foolish enough to think that they’d be protected by the Obama Regime from the Muslims they were told serve among.
Which Bump Was Ambassador Christopher Stevens, Boy?
That’s not too shocking, actually. Obama’s only political experience was in Chicago’s South Side and was, therefor, more attuned to insurrection, terrorism, vileness, and violent crime than to defending against them.
I certainly wouldn’t mind four bumps in my road – not if they all had the last name of Obama and I could back up to my car make absolutely sure of each of them. 😉
Add in the logical conclusion as to what she was alluding to with her “And it’s reckless and irresponsible what they’re doing” line and any American can see that Islamic terrorist attacks aren’t the only thing that Obama just doesn’t care about.
America needs a POTUS who cares about our laws, our people, and our security in this ever more savage world and that leaves Obama out of the running. The boy just doesn’t care about anything or anyone except the vision he’s created of himself for himself.
He will be responsible for letting a condition develop in this country which will create a climate that will bring seeds up out of the ground with vegetation on the end of them looking like something his people never dreamed of. In 2012, it’s the ballot or the bullet and either one is a valid means to salvation.
As all Americans know, the Lamestream Media is strongly biased against us and any politician we might strive to elect to office. They’ve been the enemy of the American people for decades.
Their narrative is simple: Americans are vile, vicious, and cruel; Liberals and Progressives are kind, inclusive, and caring; and the minorities are the everlasting victims of the American people.
Explaining The Media Narrative
How they’ve chosen to portray Joe Biden and Paul Ryan respectively is a perfect example of this. That perfect example, however, also provides them some slight defense for their bias and their perfidy because they are not free agents in this matter. The Obama Regime does not believe in or tolerate a free press.
And, as Obama tries to shuck and jive his way into being given another chance, the White House’s demands to control all of the message grow ever more strident and tyrannical. More and more they throw the provisions and restriction of our Constitution into the gutter in order, in the words of Valerie Jarrett, to “really take power and begin to rule.”
It has been months since Obama took any questions from the White House Press Corps. In fact, that situation has degenerated to the point when even MSNBC, who might as well be officially part of his campaign staff, is questioning it. That is an odd thing since the Obama Regime has developed the habit of requiring the White House Press Corps to submit drafts of their stories for review, editing, and approval to Obama’s campaign staff before they are run or disseminated.
Obama’s campaign takes even more despotic measures to protect itself from harm when it comes to anything that Joe Biden might jabber in front of the press. They are actively editing the drafts of pool reports before allowing them to be shared with the media at large.
Of course, my sympathies are somewhat limited since there’s nothing that the Obama Regime is doing that is forcing the Lamestream Media to go far against the proclivities. Still, as much as it pains me to say it, the Obama Regime’s attempted destruction of a free press does provide the media with some slight defense for their actions as they relate to Campaigner-in-Chief, his coterie, and the current situation.
Remember always that, if the First Amendment were to be destroyed by some despot, it would be necessary for a People desirous of Liberty to apply the Second Amendment without restraint or mercy to the tyrants and all their kin unto the least babe.
