It’s looking pretty bad for Democrats in the midterm elections. President Obama’s approval rating finally reflects his actual ability, the economy has been a huge mess for so long that people are starting to wonder if it’s not Bush’s fault anymore, and in foreign affairs Obama is no more threatening than a toddler holding a red crayon and threatening to draw lines. No longer do Democrats even dream of recapturing the House — all they hope for now is to not lose many more seats, and they expect to fight tooth-and-nail to keep the Senate. It seems all but certain that Obama will spend his last two years remembering fondly the time when he was only a lame duck.

And this would all be true except that Democrats have one weapon up their sleeves that can help them win it all in the midterms: Obamacare.

You may point out that Obamacare is hugely unpopular, to which I say, “Exactly!” And you may also note how it’s so flawed that it’s constantly being delayed, which is precisely my point.

You see, Obamacare is unlike anything this country has ever experienced before; I think we’re all still struggling to comprehend it. It is a massive piece of legislation passed by the Democrats alone during the blessed progressive utopia when the Democrats controlled the presidency, House, and Senate for all of two years. And this wholly-owned-by-Democrats legislation was an arrogant, massive overreach of government power — with a seventh of the economy being taken over by people so incompetent with money that they probably couldn’t run a lemonade stand without posting millions in losses.

Republicans expected it to be a big disaster, but even its harshest critics were unprepared for how breathtakingly horrible Obamacare would be. I mean, we conservatives always joke with each other about how completely awful politicians are, but in our heart of hearts we still assumed that their own humanity would motivate them to show at least a modicum of competence. Oh, how wrong we were. The HealthCare.gov website seemed to have been designed by people who hadn’t touched the internet since the time they’d gotten confused by their CompuServe accounts. And then there are these constant delays in implementation of the law, as if the people who designed Obamacare hadn’t even imagined all the extremely obvious consequences of their mandates. And they’re being so weaselly reporting the number of people who have actually paid for a plan as if they can trick math into not making the whole thing collapse.

And you’re probably nodding along, saying, “Yes. Obamacare is awful. It’s going to hurt the Democrats hugely in the midterms.”

You’re still not getting it.

Let’s say there is some intergalactic empire, and it makes a massive space station. The idea of the space station is that it will fire a beam at any planet, and that beam will rejuvenate and heal the planet’s environment. But the empire completely messes it up, and the first time they fire the beam at a planet, it blows it up. So do the people responsible for this just say, “This is a disaster! People hate planets being blown up! No one will want to listen to the Empire anymore!”? No, they rename the space station the Death Star and rule through fear.

The more you tighten your grip, Obama, the more congressional districts will slip through your fingers.

This joke isn't funny. Making light of the damage this law is causing by mockingly begging to be spared from it's full implementation is like trying to make a joke with a mugger to lighten the mood of the mugging. None of the people who have been harmed by this law are in a joking mood.

So now 300 million people have to live in fear? The once proud, self reliant, freedom loving, hard working, selfless and god fearing American who built this great country have NOW been replaced by nameless faceless PC dim witted drones who live in fear and want Daddy Obama to throw them a bone and give them another free toke.
Unfortunately the American citizen today is dazed and confused by this hopey changey dictatorship that we are lliving in. I do not think O is just a nice guy and misguided leftist. He is a calculating, cunning, lawyer with a bunch of billionaire idealogues supporting him and a deadly political machine that could take on and defeat the Clintonistas at their own dirty political tricks. However I think the American people are waking up from their 5 year nightmare and once fully alert will be up the task of cleaning the politiical stables of this leftists administration. If we take both houses of congress with the right types of candidates, it will be possible to launch an offensive against this tyrant that might well contain him and set us up to win in 2016. If you are right with your theory, than we may as well give up now. I do not think that will happen. The reason is iin part related to OCARE which as it reveals itself to people will be the best example of why leftists idealogues have no business governing this country or any country for that matter. It will be an uphill climb against lefty billionaires, a biased media, an uber level progressive teacher-education block and the fact that our citizens are being attacked and dumbed down every day by these punks.But faith in god and ourselves is what has given us this great country and if it is to go down, it deserves an epic fight to take back our freedom.

Please label the column. The other side is so absurd that it is really hard to tell satire from reality.

"There was one chance to send torpedoes down its exhaust port, but those got deflected by “It’s legal as a tax!”

What a great line!

In seriousness, Obamacare really does have a doomsday option. Because many people have lost their insurance due to Obamacare, getting rid of it means these people now have "pre-existing conditions". And there is no way to disallow pre-existing conditions without destroying the whole healthcare system. The best thing would be to get the insurance companies to grant a temporary waiver, but the coercive power of the left is extremely strong.

Our biggest pre-existing condition these days is Obama, himself.

Welcome back Frank; I have really missed you. Don't ever leave again. Dear Leader may have his Death Star Obamacare, but your wonderfully written humor may be the light saber that pokes a hole in its weak point.

Nah. What happens when you are cornered? Fight or flight. I think Americans would rather fight, even if they are a little short for a storm trooper. We won't stand for this extortion. Darth 'Bamma might be in the White House but with the Congress having a Republican majority he will be one step away from being impeached. On the other hand Republicans are notorious for snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.

".....with the Congress having a Republican majority he will be one step away from being impeached."

What on earth makes you think the Republicans would ever try to impeach Obama? They adhere just as steadfastly to the principles of affirmative action as the Democrats do. Obama will not ever be impeached. Beyond that, he will leave office with his "legacy" intact despite all the destruction domestically & abroad that he has wrought.

I'ma tired of the pom-pom squad already. The game has started with the tip up going to our side and the pom-poms are screaming "We win!" Shut up, already.
It doesn't intimidate the libs and only fires up the feshman B squad on the bench for our side.
