He reminds me of a mule getting hitched up to pull a wagon through a softy, sandy desert. Put the blinders on so he doesn't see the sidewinders on both sides of his path as he plods on looking straight ahead, which means in his case staying in sync with the teleprompter.
After his remarks, a little later I heard Charles Krauthammer, in his usual direct fashion, tear apart every lie or shall I say big fib that Obama had just told. Appearing on Fox News with Bret Baer, Mr. "K" quickly pointed out the two problems with his numbers. First, they don't tell you how many people who previously had no insurance now have it because of Obamacare and, secondly, there is no way of telling how many of the sign-ups were people who lost their previous coverage which was both cheaper and better quality. He also commented on the precision of the numbers, given as 7.1 million, when in the past they have always been either fudged or nuanced or both. Until we find out the net number of those gaining insurance for the first time we will have no idea of what has really taken place.
Folks, the big lie continues and as long as Americans are more interested in basketball scores than what is happening to their country right before their eyes it will continue. This program must be unmantled and soon or there will be no healthcare to revive. With doctors beginning to bail out, hospitals closing and bureaucrats dictating medical procedure approvals and costs, the likelihood of returning to a patient-doctor centered program becomes more and more remote. All we have done is to transition from the best healthcare in the world to that befitting a Banana Republic.
In other times I would say that perhaps with election of a Republican Senate some changes might come about but, sadly, I don't see the opposition party as being anything more than a shell of its former self. The Establishment Republicans have more in common with Obama than they do with us and with John Boehner and his boys meeting in Amelia Island this weekend to sign a pact with the Devil to block Conservatives, it will take a united effort by all in flyover country to bring about the change we need.
If I had my way I would throw out the entire Congress and start all over. Nothing short of a major earthquake in the Halls of Washington will be required for government to do the people's will. Is that a rumbling I hear under the Washington Monument and the Lincoln and Jefferson memorials? I guess only time will tell.
I hope you will join me every day in prayer for the hope and strength of America to overcome what we face. Remember, there is great strength in community prayer and, in the end, whatever is God's will is what will happen. We just need to be ready to deal with whatever he ultimately expects of us.
