The Obama administration is starting into Class 5 political death spiral. The vortex of which is becoming so intense and wide spread that it is going to pull a lot of Democrats and Liberal dogma down with the administration as Team Obama augers in.
Obama’s spiral is evident everywhere: from Iraq, to Gaza, to Ukraine and on the US border with Mexico. From the Veterans Administration, to the Internal Revenue Service, to Health and Human Services (HHS with Obamacare) and onto the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA with the myth of Global Warming). It is also evident in the US economy has it is experienced on Main Street USA as the myth of shovel-ready jobs implodes and generational debt is being piled up at an alarming rate.
The spiral was initiated with epic incompetence by Big Government that was hiding behind liberal fantasies. For example, the idea behind Obamacare was to turn America’s Health Care system into something modeled after the Veterans Administration (VA). And as that liberal fantasy became reality, the spiral was fed by success in achieving this naive goal. For example: people dying on secret VA wait lists for life saving health services, has been achieved with people dying on Obamacare insurance with list for access to life saving health services.
The VA’s cruel incompetence:
Doug Chase, a Vietnam veteran, was diagnosed with a brain tumor in 2011, his widow Suzanne, of Acton, told a CBS affiliate in Boston.
In 2012, Mrs. Chase said she tried to move her husband’s medical care from Boston to the VA hospital in Bedford, so they could be closer to home, but they waited four months and never heard anything. He died in August 2012.
More than 1,000 veterans have died over the last decade as a result of a failure to provide care or malpractice by the Department of Veterans Affairs, according to the findings of a new report authored by retiring Sen. Tom Coburn (R-OK).
Obamacare’s cruel incompetence:
A Sonoma County man battling more than a dozen tumors in his body is fighting a new battle with his insurance carrier, who has denied coverage for his treatments.
Guam – There is an ongoing crisis within the dialysis community. At least one local medical transport company has been forced to cease services for dialysis patients because the claims contractor for Medicare, Noridian Healthcare Solutions, is refusing to reimburse Medicare claims unless patients are on a ventilator.
In Nevada, the recently filed lawsuit alleges that numerous state residents have been going uncovered despite enrolling and paying for insurance.
The lawsuit says that one plaintiff, Larry Basich, had a heart attack at the end of last year and required costly surgery on Jan. 3 – in theory the third day of his new insurance. But the legal complaint says his payment wasn’t processed properly, leaving Mr. Basich stuck with more than $400,000 in bills.
This is just one jarring example of Obama and his liberal fantasies running amok – and the cruelty being inflicted on average Americans in the process. There are sadly many more. On the economy Obama looks more like the Sheriff of Nottingham than anything else. He bankrupts the masses so he and his cronies can line their pockets.
But more than just mad liberal policies are at play now. We have a bizarrely detached lame-duck president who at times seems bizarre in contrast to current events. If this is the President Obama that will be in the Oval Office for 2.5 more years, the vortex of his political death spiral will spread and consume with an intensity not seen in living memory.
Just this week, in response to a human tragedy involving a commercial airline being downed by a missile, President Obama was only able to muster 40 second of scripted concern before going back to his “loose bear” schtick [emphasis mine]:
President Barack Obama provoked fury in the U.S. on Thursday by casually devoting less than a minute to the deaths of 295 people aboard a Malaysian airliner, as he began an often jokey 16-minute speech about the need to expand America’s transportation infrastructure.
Traveling in Denver, this reporter heard gasps from guests watching a hotel lobby television as Obama spoke.
One remarked: ‘A tragedy is when you lose control and fly into a mountainside. This is mass-murder. What a disappointment.’
‘His distance from reality is just bizarre,’ said another.
Truly bizarre. And something we are seeing more and more common. The border crisis has been providing endless incidents of Obama’s depth of denial and unwillingness to be Presidential. To be a leader. There too he turned a blind eye to the human carnage.
Team Obama claims the President is fed up with politics and gridlock.
Well cry me a river. It is clear Obama’s incompetence has achieved its expected results. His snarky straw man insults against those he needs to work with is just one of his many character flaws working against him. Add to this is complete lack of experience in the real world and the private commercial sector and you have all the ingredients you need for a political train wreck. A straw man leader attacking straw man opponents.
If Obama is done being President already, why did he run for a second term? If he was not going to work with the full spectrum of Americans (including the political opposition), why did want a second round of frustration? What is this man thinking!?
Where is the coherence when President Obama does days of beer and pool photo ops only to go to Texas and refuse to do a photo op with the immigrant children who are alone, sick, victims of crime and dying? As the border situation continues to deteriorate, so will support for Obama and his party. How can anyone stay detached as this is happening?
The federal government is so overwhelmed by the current tide of migrants crossing the border it can’t provide basic medical screening to all of the children before transporting them – often by air – to longer-term holding facilities across the country, ABC News has learned.
Two unaccompanied children were flown from Nogales to California despite having 101-degree fevers and flu-like symptoms, according to the Department of Defense memo. Those children had to be hospitalized.
The memo said pointedly that officials in charge of moving the immigrants from Border Patrol processing centers to Health and Human Services facilities are “putting sick [fevers and coughing] unaccompanied children on airplanes inbound for [Naval Base Ventura County] in addition to the chicken pox and coxsackie virus cases.”
The document said three other kids were in the ICU at local hospitals in California, and two of them were diagnosed with strep pneumonia.
Not to mention the influx of violent criminals, etc. Obama’s blind eye will reflect back not just on Democrats, but the tenants of liberal dogma he has been pushing has his excuse for his actions. As long as the liberal groupies applaud, Obama will expand and increase his rebellion against his won job.
Obama has ushered in the Age of Cruel Incompetence. The result of Big Government run amok. The acts we have witnessed by government officials under Obama would never even be contemplated in the private sector. Probably because when someone deflects medical services from critically ill patience to ensure their own bonuses they would face jail (and should face the death penalty). In government, acts like this face no justice and Main Street is getting fed up.
Obama’s pivot from the airline disaster to joking about NJ politics shows a man who is so detached from reality one has to question his sanity. Has he snapped under the pressure of the office he now is running from?
If this is the new Obama who will be leading this nation for the next 2.5 years I can safely predict it will not be Republicans who push for his Impeachment. If Obama has snapped (even partially), and if he has decided he will operate completely outside the rules, traditions and decorum of the Oval Office (which he now seems dedicated to do), he will be a black eye on his party at every turn.
Once the carnage of the 2014 elections is realized by Democrats and what it will mean for 2016, it will be Democrats who will pushing to stop Obama.
Update: Hot Air is starting to call Obama “Semi Retired”. I think that understates the questionable behavior of our President, who seems to have “snapped” more than wanting to “nap”. The word “retire” sounds way to benign for what could be a very turbulent ride for this country over the next couple of years
