Incompentence is no surprise [UPDATED]Published 10:02am Friday, November 1, 2013 Updated 12:05pm Friday, November 1, 2013
The newspapers and airwaves are filled with commentaries from conservatives about the abysmal performance of the Healthcare.gov website, the self satisfied arrogance of HHS Secretary Kathleen Sibelius, and the long shot odds that the Teleprompter in Chief had no clues about what was happening.
Obama’s apologists and fellow leftists respond with “factual” defenses which are little more than fairy tales for adolescents.
All of this fun stuff about the staggering incompetence of the administration should not be a surprise: on the one year anniversary of the storm the recovery from Hurricane Sandy is stalled; the victory in Iraq has been thrown away;
guns were given to violent Mexican drug cartels; Obama and Hillary gave away the friendly and supportive government of Egypt to Islamic terrorists; only the intervention of the Russian dictator Putin prevented Obama and Kerry from intervening in Syria on behalf of Al Qaeda; the Obama tax and spend economics policy have prevented a recovery.
It is no surprise that the incompetent radicals woking for Obama would botch a very complex computer project.
But let’s not make a big deal about this, as eventually the website will become operational, and when that happens, the media will tell us two more fairy tales: they will say of course there were problems, and that the computer glitches were caused by the Republicans — who were never allowed within a mile of the teams botching the development of the website.
The weakness of this regime’s Obamacare is the brutal arbitrary nature of the law itself, for it creates a number of corrupt incentives for employers to cut back work hours and eliminate insurance for employees.
It also makes it illegal for Americans to decide how to spend their own money in selecting a health insurance plan to meet their needs and financial status.
It makes it more difficult to get health care for people on Medicare. It sets up the Federal government, which can’t even develop a reliable computer website, to dictate how every American obtains health care.
And, it is the leading edge of an unbridled full scale assault by the administration on the very concept of religious liberty.
This story of a failed website will pass. We should focus on the real issue, the dictatorial and anti-American nature of Obamacare.
