The actual implementation of that policy – as was said many, many, many times in the past – is going to most resemble of series of intersections of sports cars and brick walls at high speed. Back in 2009, Barack Obama and the Democratic party made a conscious decision to put off the worst aspects of said implementation in the distant future: i.e., 2014. To be fair, five years looked like an eternity to Barack Obama’s staff: why, it was after the 2012 election. Alas, one year is much less of an eternity… although when the actual car wrecks start, it may start to feel like an eternity again, to those Democrats going through them.
And when the car wrecks do start, me and Mary Katherine Ham are going to be right there to watch, complete with lawn chairs and coolers full of beer. I’m bringing the cole slaw. And the “I told you so.”
