As millions of hard working Americans lose their health insurance coverage, don’t expect President Obama to take any responsibility for the massive disaster of ObamaCare.
Instead, expect Obama to play the victim.
During an interview on NBC Nightly News with Chuck Todd, Obama stated he was the one “burned” by the dysfunctional website:
“…given that I’ve been burned already with a website–well, more importantly the American people have been burned by a website that’s been dysfunctional, what we’ve also been doing is creating a whole other set of tracks, making sure that people can apply by phone effectively, making sure people can apply in person effectively.”
My previous post, “President Obama the Victim In Chief,” includes an in-depth analysis of Obama’s “victim mentality,” expertly explained by psychiatrist Dr. Keith Ablow.
It’s not surprising that Obama refuses to accept any responsibility for the fallout over ObamaCare because he has consistently avoided responsibility for his failed leadership.
It’s estimated that 3.5 million Americans have been dropped by their insurance companies so far and the number is expected to rise significantly. Obama gave a half-hearted apology for families losing their plans.
But then again, perhaps his lackluster apology stemmed his knowledge that he was misleading Americans once again. Obama can’t really be sorry since cancelling private plans was part of the strategy. A recent Wall Street Journal editorial, “The ObamaCare Awakening,” described how cancelling private plans was needed to block competition from the government exchanges.
The political problem for the White House is that these choices are a threat to ObamaCare. If too many people keep these policies instead of joining the government exchanges, ObamaCare could fail.
In reality, Americans have been burned by Obama’s radical policies including ObamaCare.
