Well, a higher level of stupidity than normal
(Politico) Touting the latest White House Obamacare benchmark, President Barack Obama told his political base not to be discouraged by partisan attacks and stressed that their cause is divine.
About 4 million people have signed up for private health care plans under the Affordable Care Act, Obama said Tuesday night at an Organizing for Action event in Washington, urging his supporters to keep pushing to enroll as many people as possible before the March 31 deadline.
“We’re going to make a big push these last few weeks,” Obama told OFA volunteers and officials. “I can talk, my team can talk here in Washington, but it’s not going to make as much of a difference as if you are out there making the case. The work you’re doing is God’s work. It is hard work.”
I didn’t realize that lying, subverting campaign finance laws, and helping people lose their insurance and see their costs skyrocket was God’s work.
(Politico) Vice President Joe Biden used remarks at a reception he hosted in honor of African-American History Month to swing hard at the “malarkey” of voting right restrictions around the country — specifically, citing voter ID laws in North Carolina, Alabama and Texas as offenders.
As he’s done before, Biden linked the voting rights fight now to the civil rights movement of the 1960s, calling the people trying to restrict voting now the intellectual descendants of those who beat the movement’s leaders in Selma 50 years ago.
“These guys never go away. Hatred never, never goes away,” Biden said.
I wonder if Joe will call for the repeal of the voter ID laws in his home state of Delaware, Obama’s home state of Illinois, and the super deep blue state of Hawaii? As usual, Joe follows the liberal blueprint of using a feelings-based statement, because he cannot argue against voter ID using facts. He also failed to note that Jim Crow laws were Democrat laws, and the people attempting to block the civil rights law were mostly Democrats.
He also thinks that women work simply for health insurance. Sigh.
And then there’s Kathleen Sebelius, of whom Charles Krauthammer comments
(Fox News) Charles Krauthammer said Tuesday that Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius would have an easier time recalling claims she made about ObamaCare if she stuck to “the truth.”
The Fox News contributor and syndicated columnist made the comments on “Special Report with Bret Baier” after Sebelius said in a recent interview that she didn’t know where they got the figure of 7 million for people signing up for ObamaCare.
“Of course, she was the one that said it, among others,” he said. “You know, it’s an old rule, ‘say the truth, it’s easier to memorize.’”
The entire administration is incapable of telling the truth. And they don’t typically care about their lies/untruths. Like children, they live in the moment, not worrying about their previous lies. That moment for Team Obama is the moment of the 20 second sound-byte, and they realize that few in the major media will call them on the lies. If they were in the private sector, they would be fired.
BTW, Eric Holder’s comment telling state AG’s that they do not have to follow certain laws isn’t stupidity, it’s grounds for impeachment.
