Can ObamaCare Survive Obama?

Although Democrats and the mainstream media are desperately seeking to blame the colossal failure (thus far) of Obamacare on anyone and everyone but Barack Obama, the truth of the matter is stark, and remarkably different.

Indeed, public skepticism of Obamacare, and big government in general, continues to soar in magnitude and intensity, in large part because of Obama’s petulant denials about his namesake health care fiasco and his confounding refusal to accept responsibility for yet another huge national embarrassment sponsored, and botched, on his watch.

Obama’s machinations, intended to soothe the nerves of anxious Americans about the Obamacare guinea pig, are instead highlighting the dramatic decline of the American brand. His aloof detachment and insolence are key in advancing the notion that there is not now, and perhaps has never been, any such thing as American Exceptionalism.

One need only refer to the president’s hokey sales pitch in the Rose Garden on October 21 to understand the depth of his self-delusion and denial. 

As reported at the reference:

The nation’s commander in chief Monday became the salesman in chief, repeatedly touting the 1-800 number for his crippled Obamacare health network.

Operators are standing by to receive calls from people who can’t use the malfunctioning website, Obama said at a press event held in the White House Rose Garden.

They can take calls in 150 languages, he said.

“It may be a good deal for you,” he announced.

“Thousands of people are signing up and saving money as we speak,” he declared.

Telephone wait times are only a few minutes, and sign-up only takes 25 minutes for an individual and 45 minutes for a family, he insisted.

“The product is good. … It is high quality and it’s affordable,” said the pitchman.

People are getting medical coverage for the cost of “maybe the equivalent of your cellphone bill, or your cable bill, and that’s a good deal,” he told his midday TV audience.

On and on The One continued with a pathetic snake-oil pitch consisting of misleading and blatantly false promises destined to fool only low-information voters.

Unfortunately, the 800 number Obama touted was always busy, or, when available, refereed callers to the woeful government web site, a technological failure of epic proportions. Another major embarrassment for The One!

After watching Obama’s dreadful Rose Garden performance, the big question of the day is: Can Obamacare survive Obama?
