President Obama's Bubble

I hate to break it to the President but it's not just Fox network that is seeing his inability to lead our country.  The launch of the Affordable Care Act has been so disastrous only a bubble encased chief executive could be so benign regarding the ineffectiveness of its launch.  Not only are people unable to sign up, but hundreds  of thousands are being dropped from their coverage due to the new law.  Many times on the news I've watched as Obama promised back in 2010 that nobody would have to lose their coverage if they like their health insurance.  This was an impossibility as soon as it came out of his mouth.   Nobody, not even his royal highness, can prevent  a private enterprise in the United States from doing whatever it wants with the coverage it offers.  If Obamacare causes them to change their approach to who they cover, it's absolutely out of his control and really none of his business.  Once again, the President and his Democrat cronies are  surprised that he was not elected King, but President of a nation of  free thinking individuals and companies that are able to make whatever  decision is best for them and their shareholders.   This is all regardless of his noble speeches and promises to "help" all of us little people out here.

How ironic that after the Tea Party makes an ass of themselves shutting down the government and nearly driving our country into credit insolvency that  the President and his beloved Obamacare prove themselves to be the disaster the Tea Party was warning about from the beginning.   The Tea Party Right ?!  I wouldn't go so far as to exclaim admiration for them but it is looking more and more like they weren't totally off-base.  At the very least their shrill hysterics regarding the probable failure of the "affordable care act" look to be somewhat justified.  (that is not an endorsement of their tactics).   I never supported Obamacare and I especially dislike the lack of bi-partisan support such a far-reaching law had in Congress, but I was willing to give it the benefit of the doubt until it proved itself the disaster the right was predicting.  Well, it didn't take long.  It seems to be the sooner we come up with alternatives to Obamacare, the better.

Wake up Mr. President.  The  press cannot protect you anymore from you and your administration's incompetence and there is no good witch of the North that can wave a wand and make the bad stuff go away.   Establish some alternatives and show us some leadership.  It's not too late for you to deliver on at least one or two of your many promises, but the clock is ticking.

In my humble opinion.

ACA isn't a known disaster at this point. A lot depends on who signs up and how much it all costs. Will the costs spin out of control for the insurers? That would signal a disaster, but it won't be known for several months. Are the subsidies going to be much higher than expected--that could doom the program too because it won't get extra funds from this Congress.

If people can't sign on by Jan. 1, that means you need a delay which will be pretty terrible, leaving people with gaps in their insurance. That definitely shouldn't happen.

There's no doubt in my mind that the creation of the website was badly mismanaged considering it's the most important new initiative for this administration. Sebelius is a crappy manager but she's got to stay around to oversee the fixes or take the blame if they aren't completed.

I'm not sure I agree with how you globalize the incompetence in the administration. I think each part should earn that label on its own, if and when it's true.

I'm not fair reporting about Obama would be like. It's so long since I witnessed fair reporting that I can't imagine what it would sound like. Would they rag on Obama, but then ease off some when the GOP alternatives seem so hapless? I just don't know.

Thanks for another great image to illustrate the story. Love it!
