Obamacare: It is the U.S. in crisis, not the White House

CHARLOTTENovember 12, 2013 – Conventional wisdom these days says the White House is in a crisis over Obamacare.

Believe it if you want, but there is another hypothesis.

Consider the non-apology apology about the Affordable Care Act that Barack Obama made earlier this week. Remember the misleading information about Benghazi which is well over a year old and still unresolved. Think about the proposition that “al Qaeda is dead and General Motors is alive.” Or how about “If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor. Period!”

There are dozens more Obamaisms, but these are representative.

What if, cynically but hypothetically, the so-called “crisis in the White House” is a manufactured talking point to divert attention from real issues which are far more subversive?

Americans hesitate to consider such possibilities regardless of how strongly they may disagree with any administration, but perhaps the time has come to give it some thought, no matter how distasteful.

Media analysts are telling us the Obama administration is in full crisis mode, but could it just be that that is exactly what the White House wants us to believe?

Though the president’s most ardent supporters will deny it, there is certainly ample evidence to present a valid argument for that claim. Even the pro-Obama media is saying his healthcare apology was lukewarm at best. Maybe, just maybe, there really is no remorse by the administration at the mess the ACA has created? What if the plan to “fix” the healthcare website is a ruse to further screw up the system so that it becomes irreparable?

Barack Obama spent the entire first year of his presidency getting government healthcare enacted into law. He had little, if any, input into his signature piece of legislation other than to tell Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi to get it done so he could sign it. Does that honestly sound like a president who was committed to changing America’s health structure to benefit its uninsured people?

If it doesn’t it might be because it really didn’t matter what was actually in the bill in the first place. All he really wanted was a massive bureaucracy that would be so complicated that it would be impossible to unravel at a cost of untold millions of dollars. In other words, the entire process was a set-up from the outset. The healthcare muck we are dealing with today was by design from the  beginning.

Had the president been sincere in his apology he would have made alterations to the law in order to allow a viable repair and to accommodate the millions of Americans who have already been deeply affected by his policies through no fault of their own.

Obama knew he could not create the internal havoc he has accomplished in Washington in only four years. In order to succeed he needed to be a two-term president, which is why his first term was used to basically set the stage for what is happening now.

The election of 2012 may go down as a turning point in American history. The election never was about Obama/Romney, liberal vs conservative or left against right. It was really about changing the face of our nation in a way that it will take decades to rebuild. Once re-elected, Obama was able to introduce the mechanisms of mass confusion into the system that he had so carefully established between 2008 and 2012.

Terrorism comes in many forms. External terrorism is bombastic and horrifying. It is highly visible and explosive with multiple deaths ranging from single digits into the thousands. Whenever and wherever it occurs it gets attention.

Internal terrorism is more subtle. There is no loss of life but long-range it can be significantly more destructive because it has economic implications that can dismantle a society from within. Buildings and infrastructure can be rebuilt. Altering a government internally can be far more devastating.

There is something sinister about the Obamacare issue that is yet to surface. There is more to the chaos we are witnessing than meets the eye.

This is no longer a situation where the media is looking the other way. It has become a serious problem where even the press will not accept that an American president could intentionally do to our country what this president has done.

And so, we will continue to believe the White House is in crisis, when the truth just may be that the country is in an even bigger crisis that will require billions of dollars and years to correct.
