President Pivot strikes again!
In the face of continued and worsening Obamacare suckage, the White House has decided that the most pressing issue facing Americans is … anything but Obamacare.
Gay rights are a choice distraction:
Carney mentioned it at today’s press briefing:
And the White House Twitter feed is getting in on it, too, complete with an Obama-as-preacher photo:
But if you believe that the Obama administration has its priorities wrong, well, sucks to be you.
From Hot Air’s Allahpundit:
So, for the thousandth time in his presidency, he’s pivoting to jobs — and to amnesty and to the minimum wage, with a sprinkling of blather about the glories of health-care technocracy mixed in.
Indeed. More from The Wall Street Journal:
“We are very aware of the fact that health care is going to overshadow November, and it’s probably going to overshadow December, but we want to push on immigration and we want to be pushing on the economy,” the official said.
The president’s senior aides had at one time planned for him to be holding events aimed at encouraging Americans to shop for insurance on the new federal health-care website, with stops in places with high numbers of uninsured people. But the problems plaguing the site have forced them to shift strategies.
“Shift strategies.” In other words, dangle shiny objects like the minimum wage in front of us in the hopes that we forget we’re getting screwed by Obamacare.
Of course it’s not acceptable. Unfortunately, Obama just doesn’t care.
Sigh. Of course not. But since when has that ever stopped him? Look at the national debt — Obama can’t technically afford to do any of the things he does.
And we can’t afford to let him get away with this.
