Obamacare's Threat to Liberalism

BY FRANKLIN FOER

There’s a term of art that the Obama White House uses to describe its neurotic supporters who instantly race to the worst-case scenario: They are known as “bed-wetters.” Two months into the dysfunctional life of healthcare.gov, however, that seems a perfectly appropriate physiological reaction.

Liberalism has spent the better part of the past century attempting to prove that it could competently and responsibly extend the state into new reaches of American life. With the rollout of the Affordable Care Act, the administration has badly injured that cause, confirming the worst slurs against the federal government. It has stifled bad news and fudged promises; it has failed to translate complex mechanisms of policy into plain English; it can’t even launch a damn website. What’s more, nobody responsible for the debacle has lost a job or suffered a demotion. Over time, the Affordable Care Act’s technical difficulties can be repaired. Reversing the initial impressions of government ineptitude won’t be so easy.

But that never stops them. They will just blame the incompetence of Zero and argue that if there was a real intellect running things, i.e.; Hitlary, this would be running smooth as butter.

You're exactly right Frank.

The Lefties will never admit that their utopian policies are adventures in lunacy. It's just that those policies have yet to be implemented on an enlightened populace. It's the people's fault...

...and that damned Tea Party!

That's the sad thing. They are so brain washed that they never learn, just find creative excuses, and do the same thing over and over again.
