Obama’s Pointless Dog and Pony Show

> on December 3, 2013 in Washington, DC.As the flaws inherent in Obamacare become increasingly difficult for even the most news-averse Americans to ignore, President Obama is embarking on a probably futile crusade to sell the public on his signature legislative monstrosity.

Obama seems destined to get an even less enthusiastic reception from the public than George W. Bush received during the 43rd president’s ill-fated and largely forgotten 2005 crusade to reform Social Security.

Although Obama announced he is embarking on a three-week tour to convince Americans that socialized medicine is the answer to their collective prayers, Americans are recoiling at the brazen incompetence of the Obamacare exchange rollout. They seem to know almost instinctively that Obama’s statement foreshadows the looming disaster that we know as later-stage implementation of the Affordable Care Act.

That horrendous legislation is throwing millions of Americans out of the health care plans that Obama promised again and again they would be able to keep. Citizens have learned not to trust government with their health. The government made virtually no effort to ensure the security of data entered into HealthCare.gov and as a result a large proportion of insurance applicants are now at an elevated risk of having their identities stolen. The Obama administration claims the website is improving, but there is no way to know if it is telling the truth given its persistent lying about the condition of the health care program.

“The next three weeks are just a propaganda campaign and the American people are going to see right through it,” David Hogberg, Ph.D., senior health care analyst at the National Center for Public Policy Research said in an interview following Obama’s speech.

“Nothing the president can say will change the fact that millions of Americans are losing their insurance and suffering sticker shock when looking at prices on the exchanges. Propaganda doesn’t work when the truth is smacking people in the face.”

Just like another failed left-wing Democratic president, namely 1970s throwback Jimmy Carter, Barack Obama fancifully believes if he repeats his stale old talking points long enough and passionately enough and promises to work harder on fixing problems that one day, somehow, the American people will see the light and come around to his way of thinking.

Obama continues to advance the myth that Obamacare is actually meant to function and succeed, as opposed to being a cynical, Machiavellian vehicle to redistribute wealth, cripple private-sector insurance companies, and impose a single-payer system on the United States of America. In other words Obama is even more aggressively pretending that his through-the-looking-glass health care system is actually supposed to work.

“The bottom line is this law is working and will work into the future. People want the financial stability of health insurance. And we’re going to keep on working to fix whatever problems come up in any startup, any launch of a project this big that has an impact on one-sixth of our economy, whatever comes up we’re going to just fix it because we know that the ultimate goal, the ultimate aim, is to make sure that people have basic security and the foundation for the good health that they need.”

At a staged White House event Tuesday populated by specially selected lickspittles, partisan hacks from both inside and outside the media, Obama maniacs, and true believers in socialized medicine, an angry, defiant-sounding Obama subjected his audience to a smorgasbord of lies and logical fallacies.

Pulling out an exhaustive, hyperbolic litany of sob stories from thin air, Obama contended that Obamacare would end the near-Dickensian suffering of low-income Americans without health insurance. Cueing invisible violins Obama rhapsodized that

For too long, few things left working families more vulnerable to the anxieties and insecurities of today’s economy than a broken health care system. So we took up the fight because we believe that, in America, nobody should have to worry about going broke just because somebody in their family or they get sick. We believe that nobody should have to choose between putting food on their kids’ table or taking them to see a doctor. We believe we’re a better country than a country where we allow, every day, 14,000 Americans to lose their health coverage; or where every year, tens of thousands of Americans died because they didn’t have health care; or where out-of-pocket costs drove millions of citizens into poverty in the wealthiest nation on Earth. We thought we were better than that, and that’s why we took this on.

Never mind that government studies project that after full implementation of Obamacare has been achieved there will be roughly the same number of uninsured people in the population as before the Affordable Care Act was enacted three years ago.

Americans were better off under the health care “status quo” that Obama rails against almost daily, yet Obama demonizes those who long for the good old days of 2012, before Obamacare began to take effect.

Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-Ohio) is acutely aware of the growing sense of unease among the American public. Voters know they’ve been hoodwinked.
“When you look at Obamacare, what you see is a government-centered health care delivery system,” he said.
“That’s not what the American people want. The American people want to be able to pick their own type of health insurance; they want to be able to pick their own doctor; they want to be able to pick their own hospital. That’s what a patient-centered health care system looks like.”
President Obama has little interest in what health care consumers want. If present trends continue, his party will pay a terrible price for its dogmatic obstinacy in congressional elections next year.
And that’s a good reason to be bullish about America’s future.

    KevorkianCare is a more accurate name for the ACA. It puts the lives of millions of people under the control of a deluded, totalitarian cult with a long track record of killing those who refuse to contort themselves to fit the procrustean bed. Full implementation of Obamacare will be national economic suicide. It is a mechanism of economic and biological destruction.
    Naturally Obama, the deranged narcissist, won’t give up on it — the pain and suffering of others is inconsequential to his rapacious lunge for total power. Anyway, he can’t be expected to quit now…it has his name on it!

    And let’s remember another brazen lie that we have just experienced. We were told that the website would be “fixed” by Dec. 1. Nobody with any knowledge of software believed that, but the admin DID say it. Like everything in Obamacare, that promise was just empty air, what sounded good at the time. There was no schedule of development, no death march to actually ACCOMPLISH that goal. It was just thrown out there in the panic to sound like something was being done. Just meaningless noise, But they DID say it, and AFTER the initial lies were exposed. These are people who have absolutely no idea what they are doing. All this self-congratulatory b/s about who is the “smartest guy in the room.” Let’s face it, they ALL became politicians BECAUSE THEY COULDN’T DO ANYTHING ELSE. NONE of them is the smartest guy in the room.

    Obama is in the news a lot.

    Early in his presidency there was a dearth of press conferences. Now they are a dime a dozen.

    3rd quarter financial news was upbeat, but most companies will miss their earnings in the 4th quarter. Expect to see more Obama crooning like a Siren

    obama is being sent out on a mission to distract by doing the only thing he is capable of doing: reading a teleprompter. Meanwhile, the people who are actually in charge will go about their business of destroying our country.

  • BenJabo1Machal

    Simply stated, if Obama say’s it, you have to be fool to believe it

    • ziggy zoggy

      If he said he liked boy bands and glory holes I would believe that, but not much else.

  • Gee

    Okay so 14,000 people a day lost health insurance. Under OdumbaCare over 5,000,000 lost their health insurance in what a month? Next year another 90 million will lose theirs as well.

    How is that getting better?

    The Deceiver ‘n Chief is a pathological liar. It doesn’t matter what he says as long as he can hear himself saying it. Self worship knows no limits with this malignant Marxist/Muslim savage.

        I will never be convinced that Obloody’s partner is a woman until I see the DNA evidence..It may be named Michael or even Michaleen. Who knows?

        Your little limerick provided the most laughter I have enjoyed all week! I didn’t vote for the Marxist Manchurian Candidate and I’m still in shock over his re-election last year. What is wrong with the voters of this country?!

        • OnlytheTruth

          It is called voter fraud and buying/deceiving voters. Other parties could win like that too, but they have too much character and integrity to stoop so low.

      • OnlytheTruth

        Or at least as delusional as I am.

    “President Obama has little interest in what health care consumers want.”
    Or what anyone else wants for that matter. He was elected, in his mind, to impose a socialist, government-centered system on this country and he is determined to pursue this goal to the bitter end. His determination is fanatical and uncompromising and oblivious to how many people are damaged in the process. He is a revolutionary in the same sense that Alinsky, Lenin, Mao, Castro, Chavez and the like were, with the same single-minded pursuit of ideological goals.

  • OnlytheTruth

    It is all he knows — just go out and impress people (his) with speeches. But, some (a lot) of the glow is gone..
    I think he ought to be spending the taxpayers’ money and time doing something governmental. But, maybe he realized that is impossible. One has to be more than a “community organizer” to be an effective, productive president.

    Surprise Surprise, who would have thunk it, by some Miracle (or Obamas orders,) the Unemployment rate has been reduced to a mere 7%.
    That almost what happened before the 2012 Elections, Unemployment plunged by a similar percentage
