Obama Blames Republicans For Obama-Care

From an unquestioning Reuters:

Obama says rebranding Obamacare hard given rocky politics

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – President Barack Obama blamed Republicans on Tuesday for contributing to the troubled rollout of his signature healthcare insurance plan and said it will be hard to "rebrand" Obamacare after his administration fixes a website used to sign up for the program.

"We should have anticipated that that would create a rockier rollout," Obama told a Wall Street Journal conference. "One of the problems we’ve had is one side of Capitol Hill is invested in failure," Obama said…

Can Mr. Obama name one specific as to how Republicans were able to affect Obama-Care’s rollout, one way or the other? His habit of blaming everyone else for his failures is getting to be downright clinical.

Obama said he thinks the website will be fixed on time for people to "catch up" and shop for insurance by key deadlines, which fall in December and March.

The deadline for coverage starting next year is December 15th. We are supposed to believe that seven million people will be able to sign up in two weeks.

A key concern for the program’s success is attracting enough young and healthy people – who often go without health insurance – to balance out the costs of providing insurance to older and sicker people, Obama said.

"We’re going to have obviously remarket and rebrand, and that will be challenging in this political environment," Obama said…

Translation: ‘It’s harder to hoodwink people about the advantages of Obama-Care when some are pointing out the lies. Even when you are spending untold millions on propaganda.’

"If the president doesn’t realize this disastrous rollout is solely the result of his administration’s own failings, then he may never get this implementation figured out," said Brendan Buck, a spokesman for House Republican Speaker John Boehner.

We’re afraid that it’s worse than that. Obama sees evil Republicans everywhere. He seems to be suffering from a textbook case of ‘persecution complex.’

Maybe now that Obama-Care covers mental health, he should consider seeking professional help.
