The administration NEEDS a delay on #Obamacare, but they can’t bear to face that.

Bob Krumm is right: the President should be begging us for a year’s delay of Obamacare.  He’s also right about this:

That the President can’t compromise in a way that gives him everything he wants, plus the extra time he needs, is not about business.  It’s strictly personal.

Losing to Republicans will not be seen as threatening to weaken Obama; it will weaken him, not least in the eyes of his most slavish worshipers.  And worshipers is also precisely the world that I needed, and meant.And here’s the thing about humans, when they worship a man as if he was a god.  Things can get remarkably ugly when the god turns out to be a man after all.

      I’ve long suspected that the current crop of 20somethings have been raised on a bit too much “be compassionate” and “for the children” and have decided it’s all bogus.
