Never underestimate how bad Obamacare will be. “People seeking urgent medical could face longer wait times and other challenges as demand increases under Obamacare, U.S. emergency doctors said in a report on Thursday that gives the nation’s emergency infrastructure a near failing grade.”
Being the New York Times means never having to say you’re wrong. “John McCain: New York Times Is An ‘Ever Reliable Surrogate Of The Obama Administration.'” He was talking specifically about its spin on the Benghazi report, but it certainly has wider application.
Never forget political hypocrisy is the survival instinct kicking in. “The House voted Thursday to require weekly updates from the Obama administration about the implementation and operation of ObamaCare and its website, HealthCare.gov. Members passed the Exchange Information Disclosure Act in a 259-154 vote. And while many Democrats criticized the bill as another GOP attack on ObamaCare, it won the support of 33 Democrats in the final vote.”
We will never have normal relations with a regime like this. “Iran has gone on an execution binge in the past two weeks, hanging some 40 people, including 19 in one day, according to international human rights groups inside and outside of Iran.”
Gov. Chris Christie will never recover? Don’t tell New Hampshire voters. “Democratic pollster Public Policy Polling (PPP) released a poll showing Christie leads in New Hampshire with 24 percent followed by former Gov. Jeb Bush of Florida and U.S. Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., tied for second each with 12 percent. PPP’s last look at the 2016 Republican primary in New Hampshire found Paul leading with 20 percent followed by Christie with 19 percent.” The guy who is losing favor is Paul. Christie could very well lose the nomination, but declaring him dead now is silly.
As a good rule of thumb never believe any health-care number the administration provides. “Warning: Ignore claims that 3.9 million people signed up for Medicaid because of Obamacare.”
The GOP can never rest on Obama’s unpopularity. A must-read from Peter Wehner: “Republicans need to be bolder in offering up a governing agenda, for several reasons. . . . [P]resumably the reason Republicans want to win elections is to govern; and the reason they want to govern is they believe their ideas are better; and the reason they believe their ideas are better is they will promote prosperity, human flourishing and what the Founders referred to as ‘the public good.'” Then again there are plenty of right-wing outfits that make money off resentment and losing elections.
