Someone's got a case of the Monday's...
Seeking to reassure the nation that the well over 600,000,000 of their taxpayer dollars weren't a total waste, Barack Obama did his best today as the country's Cheerleader-in-Chief, but instead ended up playing the fool at a less than funny comedy of errors, as reported by both NewsMax.com, National Review and The Weekly Standard on Oct. 21, 2013.
Just about anyone technologically savvy enough to flip on a light switch knows that HealthCare.gov (aka: the ObamaCare website) is an unmitigated disaster.
So to the slim majority of Americans that still pay taxes, the cost of the ObamaCare website has so far pegged-out at $634 million with no indication what the cost of the three week overhaul will be tacked on to the bottom line.
Bad Omen Number One...
So to soothe the frayed nerves of a glitch-plagued America, Obama gave a nationally televised speech this morning from the Rose Garden.
But he was late.
Bad Omen Number Two...
At times coming across as a late night infomercial salesman hawking extra-absorbent kitchen wipes, Obama excitedly relayed the toll-free 1-800-number and reassured us that operators were standing by:
The prices are good … It is a good deal!
Twitter was alite with a number of citizens relaying their interaction with the ObamaCare fallback phone number, "some callers got a busy signal, others received an automated message, and yet others were referred back to Healthcare.gov."
Bad Omen Number Three...
Identified by Real Clear Politics as Karmel Allison, she was a bit more than simply woozy as she had to be escorted away from the pre-staged assemblage behind Obama.
Eventually realizing there was a bit of a kerfuffle happening less than three feet from his six, Obama faced about to see if he could be of assistance.
Seeing the young woman was lightheaded but well attended to, Obama leaned to towards the microphones and looking to the audience announced loudly:
I gotchya, you're ok.
As reported, Allison is pregnant as well as suffering from Type 1 diabetes.
Regarding the young lady falling out during Obama's rah-rah speech, as HunterPrime1 dryly commented on the Youtube video page:
She finally logged in to the health care site and saw her new premiums.
