Obama is said to be outraged over the debacle of his signature legislative accomplishment in that detached, disinterested, bystander way of his. So who has he fired? Who has he held responsible? Nobody, that’s who.
Which is just like all the other scandals and debacles that have characterized this failed presidency. Obama was outraged – OUTRAGED – by the fact that his IRS thugs illegally targeted Obama’s political opponents. And he fired nobody. Same thing with Benghazi, same thing with Fast and Furious. Same thing with the pattern of White House-benefitting leaks that have set back US national security by decades. Same thing with the NSA eavesdropping fiasco that has set US foreign policy by decades. And now the same thing with ObamaCare that will set back America’s health care system by centuries.
Here’s an example of Obama’s wretched incompetence and utterly failed leadership. Liberals have circled their wagons around Kathleen Sabelius and cried that you can’t fire the Secretary of Health and Human Services during a time of crisis.
One excellent theory is that Obama as the most cynical president who ever cursed America plans to fire Sabelius, but he has to wait for the complete failure to play out so that she can be blamed for EVERYTHING. Because if he fires her now, and ObamaCare continues to fail – and it WILL continue to fail – well, THEN whose to blame???
Allow me to point out that the very best thing you can do in time of “crisis” is to fire incompetent leaders and replace them with people who can get the job done.
As an example, the worst crisis in American history was the Civil War. During that war, something like 2.5 percent of the U.S. population were killed. If that were to happen today, you’d be talking 8 million dead Americans. Recent scholarship has indicated that the high side of 2.5 percent of all Americans perished as 750,000 men died fighting in the Civil War among a general population of 31.4 million. This happening while half the nation tried to secede from the other half and both halves were on the brink of catastrophic dissolution. Now THAT’S a “crisis.”
And what did Lincoln do as he encountered incompetent leaders during this crisis? He fired them. He fired half a dozen generals trying to find Ulysses S. Grant and William Tecumseh Sherman – who won the war where the generals Lincoln fired had been losing it.
By refusing to fire the INCREDIBLY incompetent Kathleen Sabelius and all the other incompetent leaders who ran ObamaCare into the ground (not that there was ever any hope for making that demonic abortion of a law successful to begin with), Obama is guaranteeing that incompetence will prevail and we will continue in the path of our dodo bird flight off a cliff.
That’s because Lincoln was one of the greatest commanders-in-chief in American history, while Barack Obama will go down as the very worst.
Now, ultimately, the reason Obama hasn’t fired Sabelius is because 1) Obama is the most cynical political weasel who was ever born of woman and he knows he’ll need a scapegoat in the future and not just in the present; and even more ultimately because 2) Obama knows he is the one who is responsible for this health care holocaust that bears his name. We now know that the political spinners who defrauded their way to his re-election said stuff like, ‘if you like your plan, you can probably keep it’ isn’t a salable point.”
Obama knew that he was lying to the American people, and he knew it every single one of the at least 36 times that he did it. We also now know that the White House KNEW that the ObamaCare website was going to catastrophically fail and crash and risk people’s security if they were fool enough to trust in Obama, but Obama demanded that website open because all he was concerned about was politics rather than people.
Two allies of the administration, both of whom spoke on the condition of anonymity because of the controversy surrounding the rollout, said they approached White House officials this year to raise concerns that the federal exchange was not ready to launch. In both cases, Obama officials assured them there was no cause for alarm.
Obama, we can state as a fact, is a pathological liar who lies about his lies only to lie that he didn’t lie about his lies. And he has surrounded himself with sycophants who do the same for him. That’s the more fundamental reason Sabelius is still around.
