It must have been divine intervention.
A miracle if you will.
It wasn't long ago that things were looking pretty bad for the president and his ability to sign up 7 million Americans for his signature piece of legislation known to us all as Obamacare by March 31st.
But he did it.
And it must be true because during his victory lap speech in the Rose Garden yesterday he said so. (See today's lead video)
I'm sure I'm probably missing something here but out of a nation of over 300 million people signing up 7 million of doesn't seem like all that big a deal.
It's funny that he doesn't mention the 6 million people who had their health care policies cancelled last year as a direct result of his beloved legislation.
And again I'm probably missing something here but when you pull those 6 million people out of the 7 million he's thumping his chest about you end up with something like a plus 1 million people.
Again, out of a nation of over 300 million people that number doesn't sound like much of a success story.
Of course he doesn't mention the fact that very few of these 7 million people he claims have signed up have actually purchased a policy (paid for) but why dwell on silly little deatils when your political party's credibility is on the line, right?
And another thing I still don't understand.
When they were out there selling this disaster of a law we were repeatedly told the most important goal was to make absolutely sure (depending on who was doing the selling at the time) the 20 to 50 million uninsured people in this country would finally be covered.
Seems to me that with the presiden't own number of 7 million those same 20 to 50 million uninsured people are still uninsured.
And he calls this a success?
He says the debate is over?
It's not a success.
It took months and thousands of continuous lies to the American people in order to pass this train wreck in the first place and deep down on your hearts even you die hard Obama supporters know that.
And Mr. President, Sir, as far as the debate being over.
I realize that since the mid-term elections are just a short seven months away you'd just as soon talk about something else.
But even as important as you think you are, you don't get to decide when the debate is over.
Oh, and you can take your numbers and shove them.
Here's the deal, Mr. President, you have a little credibility problem with the American people that's not going to go away no matter how much talking you do. (See today's second video)
For the record, we'll decide when the debate is over...
