The latest iteration:
Oh, Gee, the Administration Had the Enrollment Figures All Along. http://t.co/VSvUZ4LlOq

Turns out that the reported 40K Obamacare signup “figures are derived from reports that the government sends to each participating insurer early every evening, letting them know which customers have signed up that day.” Which means that Sebelius knew what those numbers were, all along. She and her boss.
You know who should be infuriated at this? Barack Obama’s base supporters. No, really. They’re expected to be loyal soldiers in all of this, and the administration keeps cynically hanging them out to dry. I am not sympathetic, mind you – but speaking objectively? If the Republican party leadership tried this kind of mushroom process on us we’d make them regret it for the rest of their political careers, which would be rather short.
