It’s been one thousand days of OWH. It seems like ten thousand days. What a day it has been, and it is not yet over.
Here, have a laugh, or a cry, or a chortle – it’s boobery grand buffo scale:
“President Obama is against repealing the health law’s long-term care CLASS Act and might veto Republican efforts to do so, an administration official tells The Hill, despite the government’s announcement Friday that the program was dead in the water. [snip]
Over the weekend, The Hill has learned, an administration official called CLASS Act advocates to reassure them that Obama is still committed to making the program work. That official also told advocates that widespread media reports on the program’s demise were wrong, leaving advocates scratching their heads.
Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius announced Friday in a blog post on the liberal Huffington Post web site that the administration did not see a way to make the program sustainable. Sebelius indicated her agency hadn’t been able to figure out a way to ensure the program providing long-term care paid for itself as required by law.
Later in a call with reporters on Friday, an HHS official said work on the program was being suspended.
“We won’t be working further to implement the CLASS Act … We don’t see a path forward to be able to do that,” Assistant Secretary for Aging Kathy Greenlee told reporters on Friday.”
This is Nobel Prize worthy boobery, Olympic boobery. Recall when we wondered if Obama could top his boobery of August? A few days into September and the question was answered with “yes”. September brought us a supernova of boobery. Now Obama threatens to turn Octoberfest into Boobamafest!
Try and wrap your minds around this boobery: Kathleen Sebelius was tasked by the ObamaCare health scam law to implement the CLASS act. But this past Friday Sebelius threw in the sponge as HHS abandoned the crucial part of ObamaCare as fiscally unworkable. But today Obama is repudiating his own Health and Human Services Secretary and saying he will try to get some CLASS. Who’s on first, who’s in charge?
It takes the experience of one thousand days of boobery to achieve this level of boobery, the crowning achievement of boobery. Yup, “Obama opposes repeal of law so terrible that even his own team abandoned it”:
“In other words, it’s mathematically impossible to make the CLASS Act work, yet somehow The One’s going to make it work anyway. You’ll never find a sharper illustration of his basic approach to fiscal reality than you’re seeing right here.
In fairness, he probably does understand that the program’s well and truly dead, but so terrible would it look for him to sign legislation repealing any part of ObamaCare that he prefers the idiocy of vetoing a bill that’s aimed at undoing a program already undone by his own staff. There’s wonderful symbolism in that: Agenda and “messaging” trumps all, even if it means keeping a policy in place that’s now acknowledged as destructive by both parties. So much for the guy who was going to end “business as usual” in D.C. Guy Benson’s right too that O likely wants to keep stringing along the CLASS Act true believers for as long as he can, partly to soak them for donations before election day and partly to deflect tough questions they might ask about which other unworkable parts of ObamaCare the administration might be prepared to discard.”
It’s Boobery, Corruption and Treachery all in one on day one thousand from “the One”.
But no one should be surprised. After all, today is also the day that Obama is taking another bus tour of “must win” states North Carolina and Virginia – paid for by the taxpayers not his campaign. How can Obama campaign and fund raise from willing dupes after his HHS Secretary clued in the rubes as to Obama’s lack of CLASS?:
“President Obama will kick off a three-day bus trip through small towns in politically competitive North Carolina and Virginia Monday, but White House officials insist the trip is about jobs, not votes.
So much so, in fact, that they convened a conference call Sunday to reiterate that point several times, pointing out that the trip is fully on the taxpayers’ dime, not the president’s re-election campaign’s.
Well no one is that stupid right? No way that Obama can dupe the dupes and seduce those willing to be duped even when all the evidence is there that they are dupes, right? No one is that stupid or that desperate to be duped and duped again, right? Right?:
“The Occupy Wall Street protests have energized liberals in Congress and all but silenced the left’s criticism of President Obama.
Liberals who have felt scorned and overlooked by the White House say they are rejuvenated by the protests launched from Zuccotti Park in Lower Manhattan, and hope that they provide Obama and liberal causes with new impetus and vigor.“
Mission accomplished Occupy Wall Street. Silence is golden. Congratulations for fleecing the flock, duping the gullible and those desperate to rejoin the Obama Dimocratic Party. It’s sooo lonely being without a party and it’s fun to be back.
But enjoy it fully and immediately, because soon the bill will come due and already a Hill poll shows the majority of Americans blame Washington, not Wall Street, for the economic crisis. Yet Occupy Wall Street continues to protect Obama. Congratulations.
Mission accomplished zookeepers of Zoo-cottie Park. Congratulations and thanks for the condoms and Hitler T-shirts. Those chicks sure are juicy and ready to be de-feathered and plucked.
