Obammy's nose is growing.Only a liar would claim Obamacare would have become law if Obama had originally stated that millions of Americans will have their health insurance cancelled and lose the doctors of their choice.
Twelve months ago, a majority of voters handed him a second term. This week, the Gallup Poll reported that a 54 percent majority disapprove of the job he's doing -- or not doing -- take your pick.
Public opinion polls, including Gallup's, report his job approval polls shrinking to 40 percent and lower in some surveys, a precipitous decline in so short a time.
In the past week alone, Obama was forced to apologize to millions of Americans who've lost their health insurance under Obamacare, despite his promises they could keep their present medical care policies and that no one would take that away from them. "Period."
It was a tepid apology at best and a politically dishonest one at worst, saying he was "sorry that they, you know, are finding themselves in this situation, based on assurances they got from me."
He had signed the Obamacare bill into law, knowing it would require that future insurance policies include a long line of costly new benefits for maternity, pediatrics, birth control and other things, whether you needed them or not. Policies that didn't contain them, in many cases because older Americans don't need them, were cancelled.
Obama and senior White House officials insist neither he nor they knew this would happen and blamed insurance companies. These are the same people who promised the online application system was fully operational and ready to go, when preliminary tests clearly showed it was not.
These are the same people who are predicting that tens of millions of Americans would sign up for Obamacare at a level needed to make the program financially viable. So far, applications have been pathetically small.
While the news media has been entirely focused on the Obamacare debacle, the government's latest monthly data reveal new weaknesses in his underperforming economy.
So one Obammy failure overshadows his other failures, but the MSM finally has to report them.
