No He Can't

Nine months ago, Obama seemed like the world’s greatest bamboozler. I mean, he came out of nowhere, had a weak resume, a lot of nagging questions, yet he won the job of president of the United States, the most powerful and important job in the world. And never before held by a black man. Yet he over came that obstacle and others. Many people thought he was going to be a miracle worker because he seemed so confident and smart.

Of course, many of us where not fooled. But that’s another story. Obama fill has his fans, but his poll numbers are dropping like a stone and even his supporters are asking questions. Check out this article by Camille Paglia.

Obama’s aggressive endorsement of a healthcare plan that does not even exist yet, except in five competing, fluctuating drafts, makes Washington seem like Cloud Cuckoo Land. The president is promoting the most colossal, brazen bait-and-switch operation since the Bush administration snookered the country into invading Iraq with apocalyptic visions of mushroom clouds over American cities.

You can keep your doctor; you can keep your insurance, if you’re happy with it, Obama keeps assuring us in soothing, lullaby tones. Oh, really? And what if my doctor is not the one appointed by the new government medical boards for ruling on my access to tests and specialists? And what if my insurance company goes belly up because of undercutting by its government-bankrolled competitor? Face it: Virtually all nationalized health systems, neither nourished nor updated by profit-driven private investment, eventually lead to rationing.

I just don’t get it. Why the insane rush to pass a bill, any bill, in three weeks? And why such an abject failure by the Obama administration to present the issues to the public in a rational, detailed, informational way? The U.S. is gigantic; many of our states are bigger than whole European nations. The bureaucracy required to institute and manage a nationalized health system here would be Byzantine beyond belief and would vampirically absorb whatever savings Obama thinks could be made. And the transition period would be a nightmare of red tape and mammoth screw-ups, which we can ill afford with a faltering economy.

Yes, there is no way government health care can run in this country as socialized medicine, which is what Obamacare would become as they have imagined it. It would bankrupt us, and rationing would be very fast and very brutal. And the ham handed way they are trying to shove this down the public’s throat is turning most people off.

So today, faced with all these Townhalls where people are screaming at Congressfools, Obama has decided on doing his own town halls with cherry picked supporters who are bussed in before a sprinkling of regular people are let in so he can say it’s not all pre-screened. He had one today and has two more after that. Based on today’s laughable effort, he is far from the master salesman. Even Jon Stewart made fun of him.

He started off today’s town hall with a bunch of false statements. The biggest being that the Healthcare plan wouldn’t cost anything. That’s a bald faced lie. His other claim that there are no “death panels” is meaningless. When people talk about that stuff they’re not referring to what’s in the bill but what the inevitable result of this monstrosity would be. In countries where they have socialized medicine like Japan, the UK, Canada, they are cutting off older patients and others they deem unfit or too expensive for the service. The wait times for operations are deadly, the quality of service is even worse.

We live in the age of the internet. People can look this stuff up. The facts are out there. Obama can spin it all he wants, but the public is increasingly less interested in what he has to say because they have seen how wrong, and how utterly foolish his administration has acted regarding the bank crisis, the auto industry. The trust isn’t there. And besides, he lies.

Let’s hope Obamacare goes down in flames and his administration soon follows.

UPDATE: Sure enough, Obama was caught bussing in supporters to that town hall yesterday. Told ya.

  1. I’m beginning to wonder if Оба́ма’s supporters can live with a President Biden and VP Pelosi….
    They also have to go. How, I don’t know.

  2. I’m hoping they all go too, Macker.

    I hope they do…

    Good to see people are finally waking up.

    What gets me besides the fact some people believe believe the government can take charge of healthcare is the fact that they’re not bothering to check on some of the nitty-gritty details of this package.

    They really have to pay attention to who’s surrounding Obama.

    Rahm Emmanuel, for instance, has a brother who’s a physician who’s apparently in favor of letting the sickest and most elderly be denied medical care to save costs. He’s a Social Darwinist in the grimmest detail. Dead serious that this guy is the most undoctor-like, Mengelish individual you’d come across in the medical field.

    Serious — he wants changes in the Hippocratic Oath and the ability for doctors to let people go and die off on their own. He’s written about his views in JAMA, Journal of the Medical Association, so it’s on the record and not “some rightwing, made-up stuff.”

    But then again we all know Obama’s for letting the most radical crazies kill perfectly healthy kids left and right.

    There are persons in the Black American community who are very much NOT okay with this and realizing that Obama’s social views do not reflect their most sacred beliefs.

    There are plenty of sick twisted people in this Administration.

    Quoting an article (on Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel) “Savings, he writes, will require changing how doctors think about their patients: Doctors take the Hippocratic Oath too seriously, “as an imperative to do everything for the patient regardless of the cost or effects on others” (Journal of the American Medical Association, June 18, 2008).

    “Yes, that’s what patients want their doctors to do. But Emanuel wants doctors to look beyond the needs of their patients and consider social justice, such as whether the money could be better spent on somebody else.

    “Many doctors are horrified by this notion; they’ll tell you that a doctor’s job is to achieve social justice one patient at a time.

    Emanuel, however, believes that “communitarianism” should guide decisions on who gets care. He says medical care should be reserved for the non-disabled, not given to those “who are irreversibly prevented from being or becoming participating citizens . . . An obvious example is not guaranteeing health services to patients with dementia” (Hastings Center Report, Nov.-Dec. ’96).”

  3. The lefties are always trying to demonize anyone to the right of them as being inhumane monsters. But they reveal their true colors whenever they get power. They want to wipe out large parts of the population and completely dominate and tyrannically control the rest.

    I’m glad this info is getting out.

  4. What it boils down to is that there are four health care systems in the USA. Three (Medicare, Medicaid, and the VA) are grotesquely in debt, to the tune of tens of trillions of dollars. The last is the free market health care system, which is solvent.
    So the obvious thing to do, according to the “Progressives” (meaning socialists) is to fold the solvent system into the rest and have a nice, clean sweep of insolvent programs.
    The insanity of it is beyond comprehension and can only be explained by a desire for power and votes.
