Just Like Cockroaches, Democrats Scramble When You Shine The Light on Them

Note: We’ll be discussing this hilarious scrambling by democrats on this Sunday’s edition of The Teri O’Brien Show.

Despite statements that he is done running for anything yesterday B. Hussein Obama traveled to Louisiana, to continue his endless campaigning for his legacy, which no matter how many pointless TelePrompTer readings he gives, will be failure. A stagnant economy, smothered by his tax-and-spend policies, and the mother of all income redistribution rackets, Obamacare.

As noted here, Sen. Mary Landrieu, who unlike the One does have to face the voters again, made sure that she had a “scheduling conflict” that kept her from appearing with Barack Office Poison. She is running, running for her political life, thanks to her support for the toxic (Un)Affordable Care Act. Now that the reality of this train wreck is entering the consciousness of even the low-information bunch who think that they are well-informed because they watch “Good Moron America,” the democrats responsible for it, are practically messing themselves trying to escape responsibility.

As the Wall Street Journal notes today, in an excellent piece entitled “The Obamacare Dozen,” any one of the twelve Democrats up for re-election in 2014, including Sen. Landrieu, could have stopped this socialist scheme. Here’s an excerpt:

Louisiana’s Mary Landrieu is hoping to cauterize that crisis with a bill that supposedly allows people to keep their plan if they stay current on premiums. About 80,000 Louisiana policy holders—or half of the individual market—will be dumped in 2014, according to the state’s insurance commissioner.

Here again, complex insurance contracts take months to plan financially and negotiate with providers. They could be renewed for maybe a few months but not forever, which is why the Landrieu bill is simply a new mandate ordering insurers to continue offering these plans. But the hard business truth is that these plans are already gone. The only way to solve the problem is a time machine to go back to 2010 when HHS published its deliberately restrictive rule on “grandfathering.”

The Shaheen and Landrieu proposals are merely ploys for these Democrats to distance themselves from ObamaCare while still embracing it. But they can’t have it both ways. Either they can vote to take down the whole regulate-subsidize-mandate apparatus for a year and propose major reforms to prevent a reprise of the last six weeks. Or else they will be enablers of the current and future disruptions, cancellations and limited health choices.

If Barry is so “sorry” about the disruptions in millions of Americans health plans, why doesn’t he direct the Secretary, Kathleen “Nurse Rached” Sebelius to rewrite that grandfathering provision? Gee, I wonder why Chuck Todd didn’t ask him that? (Yes, these are both rhetorical questions.)

Here’s the money part of the WSJ piece: 

The ObamaCare Dozen are receiving an overdue education in the damaging consequences of the bill they supported, all of which were predicted by critics in 2010. Any one of these Senators could have prevented the current madness by voting no. And now the President they empowered to govern from the ideological left has rejected even their de minimis fixes and is promising to “grind it out” even if the problems get worse. These Senators deserve to be held accountable at the ballot box.

We must make sure that they are held accountable. We have less than a year. Let’s get to work. I’m here to chew gum and kick ass, and I’m all out of gum.

Thanks to our guest, Mychal Massie, of The Daily Rant: Conservative Mychal Massie’s Hard Hitting Commentary on Race, Obama and Politics. Thanks so much, Mychal!

Never doubt me. As noted here, in the show preview that we post before each week’s show, I mentioned that al-Shabaab, the Somali-based terror group that has taken responsibility for the brutal, bloody murder of innocent people at a shopping mall in  Nairobi, Kenya, has a robust recruiting program in the U.S., especially in Minnesota. Now we learn that several Americans were involved in this attack. No worries, though. I’m sure that even though they have American passports, there’s no chance that they will be able to get back into the country and put their terrorist skills to use at a mall near you.

East Coast Brain Rot afflicted Republicans and their Amen chorus in the dinosaur media tells us that it’s absolutely impossible to convince the Senate to pass the Continuing Resolution that the House sent them last Friday. That bill funds the entire government, with one notable exception; that is, Obama’s hideous, job-destroying, health insurance terminating, medical provider retiring Unaffordable Care Act. Impossible? Really? These are the same people that told us that Congress would green light Obama’s idiotic idea to lob a few missiles into Syria. That was supposed to be a done deal. Then you started calling your Congress critters. It’s even more critical that you do that now, especially if you live in a red state with a senator up for re-election next year.

Does Obama Get Dibs on This Sort of “Road Kill?”

From The Hill:

A Secret Service dog died in New Orleans Saturday night when it fell from a parking garage during a sweep for an event featuring Vice President Biden, the Secret Service said Sunday.

The dog fell from a parking garage at the New Orleans Ritz-Carlton, where Biden was speaking at a fundraiser for Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-La.) Saturday night.

No word on whether there was a barbecue today at the White House.
