Obama Taking Responsibility for Obamacare Means Nothing

Obama now accepts full responsibility for the problems with the roll out of Obamacare.

What exactly does “full responsibility” mean? That Obama admits it was his fault. That’s obvious. Even a master liar can’t duck his responsibility for Obama care. I mean, his name’s on it.

Obama can’t help but admit his responsibility for one of the biggest financial, administrative and medical debacles in American Bureaucracy. He should, by all rights, resign as if he were a proud Japanese warlord rather than an irresponsible Hawaiian bureaucrat.

Of course it’s doubtful that Obama will resign. Perhaps he will cut off his pinky like a Yakuza. No, he’s not known for his courage.

Perhaps he will pay the government and the citizens back the billions of dollars that his little failed experiment has cost us. Although he is a millionaire who pretends that he is one of the vast unwashed middle class, he certainly doesn’t have nearly enough money to pay us back.

ObamacarePreciousSo dear President Obama, what does your taking responsibility actually mean? Nothing. Like all your speeches.

As Macbeth might have said about any one of your speeches, “It is a tale. Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, Signifying nothing.”

Well, I guess there isn’t much sound and fury. The teleprompter is a remote medium.

And how could there be responsibility when there are no consequences for you? You hurt everyone around you and when you feel that they are on to you, you blame it on the Republicans. Or Bush.

Well, I guess you keep passing the buck. You just go on and on weakening the country, hurting the middle class that you pretend to revere, and somehow gathering up votes that you don’t deserve.

You say you take responsibility. I say that you try to slip it, but that it sticks to you like orange flypaper.

You pretend that you don’t see the sticky paper hanging from your fitted suit and go on talking like your speech had any meaning other than dodging guilt.

You called previous insurance substandard, even though most Americans liked their insurance and their doctors. So what did you do? You replaced it by no insurance. If your program weren’t so ridiculous I might cry. But if I got an eye infection, I no longer have insurance to see an eye doctor.

Hey, I never liked Harvard, which rejected me a couple of times. But how did they graduate you, an accidental enemy of our society and a naive dreamer sloshing around in ideological generalities, rather than a president wading in pragmatic solutions?
