Obamacare – the joy of failure by Jonah Goldberg


For my Sunday respite, I have chosen a wonderfully written piece by Jonah Goldberg. I would love to post the whole darn feel good piece, but you know, it’s the law thing not to take it whole. I chose a couple of pieces of it, but one really needs to start in the beginning to end up with a big smile on one’s face. So enjoy and go for a fun ride: Obamacare Schadenfreudarama  by Jonah Goldberg.

First, the obligatory caveats. It is no laughing matter that millions of Americans’ lives have been thrown into anxious chaos as they lose their health insurance, their doctors, their money, or all three.

But come on, people.

If you can’t take some joy, some modicum of relief and mirth, in the unprecedentedly spectacular beclowning of the president, his administration, its enablers, and, to no small degree, liberalism itself, then you need to ask yourself why you’re following politics in the first place. Because, frankly, this has been one of the most enjoyable political moments of my lifetime. I wake up in the morning and rush to find my just-delivered newspaper with a joyful expectation of worsening news so intense, I feel like Morgan Freeman should be narrating my trek to the front lawn. Indeed, not since Dan Rather handcuffed himself to a fraudulent typewriter, hurled it into the abyss, and saw his career plummet like Ted Kennedy was behind the wheel have I enjoyed a story more.

The hubris of our ocean-commanding commander-in-chief surely isn’t news to readers of this website. He’s said that he’s smarter and better than everyone who works for him. His wife informed us that he has “brought us out of the dark and into the light” and that he would fix our broken souls. The man defined sin itself as “being out of alignment with my values.” We may be the ones we’ve been waiting for, but at the same time, everyone has been waiting for him. Or as he put it in 2007, “Every place is Barack Obama country once Barack Obama’s been there.”

    Could ol’ floppy ears be the messiah of which the Old Testament speaks? The voting pattern of the Jewish community in the last two presidential elections lends support to this supposition. Is he their answer to the Catholics’ John F Kennedy? What differentiates one from the other is that we believed Kennedy when he admitted to and apologized for the Bay of Pigs debacle. The following year he stared down Nikita Kruschev and saved the world from a nuclear holicaust. Obama aka the messiah couldn’t save four poor souls in Benghazi. That and his famous incantation, ” Ask not what your country can do for you…” at his inauguration. Today America’s ignorant continue to ask what they can do for this destroyer Obama. You gotta laugh.
