‘Fix Obamacare!’ ‘So you admit that it’s broken?’ ‘No!’ …Wait, WHAT?

Now, I know that a lot of people are basically permanently annoyed with Chuck Todd, particularly since he recently declared that Obamacare was here to stay. But the technique that he used on Debbie Wasserman Schultz in the video below remains easy to replicate. It turns out that taking a position solely because it polls well doesn’t work out as well when you get challenged on it:

…And this is the basic problem with the “Let’s fix Obamacare!” gambit that Democrats are hoping to use. The next logical question is “How?” It’s an elegant trap, really: as Rep. Wasserman Schultz demonstrates, the Democrats are trying to hold two, contradictory positions. To wit: they must agree with the American people that the law is horrifically flawed – while at the same time claiming that the Democrats did a marvelous job in crafting, passing, and implementing the legislation. So when a Democrat gets asked for a specific problem, he or she is pretty much stuck for an answer. Either the Democrat must have his or her party take sole responsibility for an easily-avoidable mistake, or the Democrat must tacitly admit that ‘fix Obamacare’ is a particularly pathetic piece of agitprop.

For the record, the smart response would apparently have been to own up to something bad, and call for it to be fixed. We know this because Debbie Wasserman Schultz picked the other option.

PS: I found today’s Obamacare news remarkably… muted. It’s almost as if the Left doesn’t want to trust its weight to that particular branch.

    In other words all this talk about “fixing Obamacare” is nothing but a pack of lies, somehow I’m not surprised.

  • Jeff Weimer says:

    F**k these people. They’re celebrating *lines* (that we didn’t have before) for Obamacare.

  • Skip says:

    So what’s the ETA on the Obamacare enrollment numbers being “unexpectedly” moved downward?

  • Herp McDerp says:

    Before I watched this video, I never realized just how much Debbie Wasserman Schultz looks like a catfish. The eyes, the mouth, the tendrils …
     
    (And from now on, every time you see her, you’ll be reminded of that resemblance. Our work here is done, kemo sabe …)

      Hey now that’s uncalled for. Seriously, you have no business insulting catfish by comparing them to Debbie Wasserman Schultz.

  • Cameron says:

    So they have fixed a non-existent problem, created whole new ones and they want to adjust it so they can create new ones.
    .
    Those who can’t, run for office.

      That’s Washington DC for you, I wonder if there is something in the water out there that makes politicians so stupid.
