Granted, that is always the right move. But what caused National Review’s Jonah Goldberg to do that today? Well, this happened:

Yes, really.

https://twitter.com/JonahNRO/status/407151284978860033

Unbelievable. Yet, of course, totally believable. Ezekiel Emanuel, an architect of Obamacare whom actor Adam Baldwin called a “lying freak.” And the always absurd and hack-tastic Ezra Klein. Balance? Well, if you want to balance lying hack with hackier lying hack.

Snort!

Other viewers also called out “Meet the Press” for the epic fail.

And an excellent exit point:

Truth. What else can you expect from lapdogs?

    • Republicanvet

      Yeah, continuing the same disaster has been so helpful to date.

      The real storm is going to be happening soon when those people who HAD health insurance and were dropped because of democrats, run out of their prescriptions.

      1 Oct dropped. Maybe enough meds for 30-45 days.

      1 Dec, the 404Care site not working, and someone needs a prescription refilled. No insurance, and likely could not see their regular doctor anyway.

      Their only option is the ER.

      Brilliant move democrats. Go on TV and tell more lies. That should fix any problems.

What about the kids out there with cancer that got their policies already cancelled, or other cancer patients?

      A good litmus test would be to ask the question, “Which one of these guests would be embarrassed should Obamacare fail,” because they loudly put their intellectual reputations on the line to promote it?

    • HanaFiveO

      My fav was the comment about the insurance gap being nothing to get upset about. When millions of Americans find out they have no insurance coverage on Jan 1, they should just shut it and have a cup of tea or something.

      • CatHerder ✓fire! ✓fire!

        I just re-upped on my employer provided insurance. It’s supposed to kick in come January, though the premiums are twice what they were and I don’t even want to talk about the deductible. Down the chute we go!

        • HanaFiveO

          Mine expired in June. They gave me a temporary short term policy thru the end of the year, because so many things were still unknown about Obamacare. The new Obamacare compliant policy that will be effective in Jan. will be a higher premium ($300.) Double the deductible ($5000) and a total out of pocket cap costs of $12,000. Exception for hospital, we get 80% for 4 days, anything exceeding that the cost is all out of our pocket. Those are just the highlights, we also lost a lot of key (for us) coverage, but the higher policy options that cover those things is just too expensive for us.

          Not to mention, all the confusion being caused by our insurance commissioner demanding that the two insurance companies extend previous policy coverage for another year as per the POTUSs edict.

          Right now Kaiser wont even answer questions and say we will be notified by mail when they figure it all out.
          I think I already started down the chute. Fingers crossed Ill still be insured next year.

        • Alphabet_Soup

            We received our notice last week. For the same policy with a $4200 deductible/person it went from $750/month to (drumroll please) $1500/month. SAME policy except now it covers abortions, sterilization, sex change operations etc…just what we need. Didn’t he say something about saving $2500/yr?

    Not surprising. A few weeks ago F.

So you have a talk show and on the big issue of the day you have three people discussing the issue and you can’t be bothered to get a French government official to defend their pov? To get on CNN you have to support Obama a little or a lot to get on TV. ‘That’s’ where they want to have the political tension.
