Just Keep Pointing That Finger

Posted on July 6, 2014 12:00 pm

At a recent appearance, former HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius blamed “right-wing media” as one of the reasons Obamacare doesn’t work.

So… Fox News created the laws of economics?

    Well, if Hillary can blame her incompetence on George Bush, why not?

  2. MPH says:

    No, that’s not what she meant. Hypertext is “right-wing”, and so the web sites espousing or implementing liberal things automatically malfunction as a result.

    You’d think, since left wing media outnumbers right wing about 50 to1, they’d easily win the war….

    Excuses and bad policies are all this administration has. To this, we add the Democrat-controlled Congress of 2006 – 2010. And for dessert, may we present the do-nothing Republican House under John Boehner since 2010.

    Care for a cheap after dinner brandy and crappy cigar?

    @4 Jimmy-

    i’m curious about something, maybe you know the answer. lots of Boehner bashing going on. what would you have him do? the House has passed many bills only to have them die under Reid. one-half of one-third of government has no offensive power at all. he can only play defense. i would like to see many things done, but i don’t see what Boehner could do differently.

    can you enlighten me? all the info i get is filtered through the MSM, which means worthless, or RINO screamers who seem to think that “Republican” means what they say, not the what the majority of the party voters say.

    i’m perfectly happy to join in Boehner Bashing, but i think that he is playing a weak hand pretty well.

    Personally, what I’d like to see out of Boehner is for him to get a little more Al Sharpton (I’m sorry to say).

    Every (a) blunder, (b) power grab, and (c) scandal from the government should have a loud immediate response from the Speaker of the House.

    (This weird lawsuit doesn’t count, though it did get attention from the media briefly, if only to mock the idea. Parenthetically, when did the press start to see it as their role to mock anything?)

    * * * How many statements has Boehner made about this administration’s awfulness? How many can you quote? How many has he even made? * * *

    Granted, the media is not going to give them any air time when he does issue a statement, or press release, or hold a press conference, but he is one of the most powerful men in the government — find a way!!

    The administration has been tossing up softballs, and I have neither seen nor heard any indication of Boehner swinging at them. It’s been predominant silence. Frank J, in his spare time, has been a more outspoken critic of the president than the leader of the political opposition, whose job it is.

    I’d like to see a Paul Ryan-like command of the facts, calmness in the face of argument, and willingness to demolish false assertions on the Sunday talk shows *every single week.* Obama should be facing a vocal opposition constantly. He isn’t.

    And what has the House defunded? The Obama sequester was hung around their neck, so they presumably got a little gun-shy. What power has Boehner wielded in the public eye (not behind the scenes in conferences or at cocktail parties)? As a casual reader of the news, I don’t know what the hell he’s been doing since he took over the Speakership. That’s not how it should be — I should be able to rattle off twenty or thirty concrete actions by now, as well as pithy, memorable quotes from him on the failures of this presidency.

    actually, oppo, i disagree strongly about the “weird lawsuit”. i think it is a necessary move. obama has been able to thwart all attempts at checks and balances-largely by holder and racist claims. getting the courts openly on the side of the House (and hopefully the Senate) will make a 2-1 argument in the eyes of the people for checks and balances. making a better case for impeachment.

    * * * How many statements has Boehner made about this administration’s awfulness? How many can you quote? How many has he even made? * * *

    this i exactly my point about filtered though the MSM. depending on who you believe, the House has voted as many as 54 times to get rid of obamacare, or only six for complete repeal. either way, it is more than the MSM has acknowledged (unless ridiculing it).

    three Boehner quotes:

    “Given what we heard yesterday about the president’s vision for his second term, it’s pretty clear to me that he knows he can’t do any of that as long as the House is controlled by Republicans.”

    ““We’ve made it pretty clear and I’ll make it clear one more time: If the court does not strike down the entire law, the House will move to repeal what’s left of it.”

    “The president continues to blame anyone and everyone for the drought but himself.”

    I would love for the weird lawsuit to gain traction and have an effect.

  9. jw says:

    @8 oppo, yeah. i was thinking about what you said about sharpton. it seems to me that to some extent that is what the lawsuit is. there are many who say it is foolish. on the other hand, it will get PR, it is out in the public and can be ignored only if the left is certain it will fail. obama is 0-12 in scotus right now.
