Obamacare Sign-ups, Mid-East Peace Talks: More Barack "Success" Stories!
By John W. Lillpop
To most normal people, the word Success means attainment of a positive goal, an achievement worthy of celebration.
However, since most Democrats are not normal, they are often confused when it comes to application of the word to important political issues.
Which is why Barack Obama’s stumbling and bumbling over the use of chemical weapons in Syria was so devastating to American honor and prestige throughout the world, particularly since a leading Democrat in the US Congress, Nancy Pelosi, described the Obama misfire as a smashing “victory” for the good guys.
According to the perpetually- deluded Pelosi, the Syrian proposal advanced by Vladimire Putin was a “victory for President Obama.”
How utterly clever of Putin to parlay his eyeball-to-eyeball stare down with Obama into a bold policy which saw the Kremlin swallow Crimea, while amassing 100,000 or so Russian troops near Ukraine!
What a huge W for The One!
Just this past week, the Obama victory machine was working overtime to keep up with glad tidings both domestic and foreign.
On April fools Day, glad hands were all about as Barack Obama and Joe Biden celebrated the attainment of something involving the number 7.1 million and the Obamacare healthcare scam.
In fact, Team Obama was so enthralled by their “victory” over liberty and free market economics, that the White House requested valuable primetime air to trumpet the 7.1 fairy tale to the American people.
As reported at the reference, network moguls were not convinced:
WASHINGTON — White House officials sought valuable primetime air for a rare, impromptu Tuesday night address to tout the accomplishment of signing up more than 7 million people under the Affordable Care Act.
But network officials refused to make the kind of accommodation they did previously for the announcement that Osama Bin Laden had been killed, for instance, and Obama was left instead cutting into the much smaller audiences of Ellen and other daytime shows.
Three sources familiar with the request confirmed the White House asked for the primetime slot in their effort both to emphasize a bright moment following the challenging roll out and, more important, to try to reintroduce the country to a law that remains unpopular.”
Meanwhile, as US Secretary of State John Kerry continues to make a donkey of himself and American foreign policy throughout the world, another unexpected “victory” occurred
with Israel’s cancellation of prisoner releases that were considered crucial to keeping peace talks alive.
As reported, “Kerry risks being seen as trying too hard at the expense of a range of other pressing international issues, and perhaps even his reputation, according to several senior administration officials who spoke on the condition of anonymity about sensitive internal and diplomatic matters.”
Notwithstanding these Obama “victories,” there were disappointing moments as well. Such as the ruling by the SCOTUS concerning free speech versus nanny-state policing of campaign financing.
Ever diligent about seeing Victory in everything Obama touches, Nancy Pelosi pointed out that justices Sotomayor and Kagan, both Obama SCOTUS nominees, voted for tyranny and against free speech!
