Posted on 05/21/2014 8:41:52 AM PDT by Kaslin
It was nearly two minutes of babbling double-speak and nonsensical platitudes. And, strangely, these confoundingly evasive words did not come from our beloved Nancy Pelosi, or that Democratic Gem Debbie Wasserman-Schultz. When NBC correspondent Kasie Hunt asked the Georgia Democrat Senate hopeful, Michelle Nunn, whether or not she would have voted for the Affordable Care Act, verbal chaos ensued.
At the time the Affordable Health Care Act was passed, I was, uh, working for Points of Light, so, I think its hard to go back to look back retrospectively, but when I look at it, I think about what do we need to do going forward? I look at it, I come at it from the perspective of someone who made payroll, who saw rising healthcare premiums, who believes we actually need to work together to make changes where its not working and improve the things that already are working.
For another mind grinding minute the Democrat politician trudged her way through non-committals, platitudes, and circular logic. Her unprepared attempts to verbally stumble out of the question kinda makes the viewer think she doesnt really want to approach anything resembling an actual answer.
Through her complex web of unmarried half-thoughts, she managed to brush upon the few things within Obamacare that she apparently thinks are universally praised. She managed to profess her admiration for platitudinous concepts, such as coverage for preexisting conditions, and parental sponsored healthcare for kids up to the age of twenty-six. (Ok Seriously: We live in a world where people in their mid-twenties cant be expected to take care of themselves? If were considering 26 year olds to be kids on their parents health insurance, then maybe we shouldnt let them vote )
When pressed by the reporter for a slightly more coherent response, her train of thought continued the scenic route to a non-answer:
I think its impossible to look back retrospectively and say, what would you have done if you were there? But what I can say, ultimately, because I wasnt there, and we now have hindsight, what I can do is say, heres where we are today, and heres what we should do today, which is to move forward.
Ok So, to be clear: You want to move forward? And, by forward, you mean that you would like to inject more government, regulations, restrictions, mandates and dictates on the healthcare system (because that worked out so well every other time weve tried it)? Can we have a clarification of directional platitudes? Because I dont really see more intrusive government monopolization of healthcare to be a forward step toward improved care And there are probably a handful of VA victims who would agree with my assessment.
To be fair, she did make one accidental observation of some validity: We do have hindsight. And, if we are to judge by the outcome thus far of Obamacares implementation, it has been an unmitigated disaster. (And yet, shes still unable to say no to the ACA Of course, lets face it: Shes unable to say yes as well )
As awesome as the two minutes of mental gymnastics were, they did more to let voters know who she is than any direct answer ever could have done. After all, whats more revealing than watching a politician verbally tap dance in search of a politically palpable alternative to the truth? Shes well on her way to being a Washington Politician... Which is the worst insult I can currently muster given the obvious limitations of the English language. (It is however an insult that was well earned.)
But just being a Demonut is a YES vote
Q: Any brains?
A vote for Nunn is a vote for Harry Reid to be majority leader.
The fact that she can’t answer the simple question, indicates that she would have voted for Obamacare. Since she is a Democrat, that fact overrides everything else.
“Obamacare? Never heard of it.” [Votes “Aye”.]
So much for Wasserman-Schultz’s promise that democrats will run on obamacare.
They should just carry around a recording of Jackie Gleason’s Ralph Kramden saying, “ ah, homina, homina, homina...” It would be far more intelligible.
