Hard to believe our president said on a live TV interview, in a quick reaction to a question on the “roll out” failure, “I’ve been burned ...” What a pity that the computer fiasco has so unnerved our leader.
Tens of thousands of Americans have found their lives irreparably disrupted by what has proven to be something that was sold as a Cadillac and has turned out to be a measurably more costly clunker. These people were more than burnt. They were deceived by a government that was more interested in the Barack Obama’s “ideology” than the well-being of its people. The need for power turned out to be the motivator rather than the well-being of its citizens.
Many have used the phrase “narcissist personality” in attempting to understand the president’s thought processes. Add to that his lack of true management experience and compassion, and you compound the frustration that the situation has caused. True pity needs to be directed to those that have been duped into believing that there is such a thing as a free lunch by those selling this poorly thought out Ponzi scheme.
When the smoke finally clears a bit, we will undoubtedly have one of two things:
1. A country where one-sixth of the economy is controlled by the government, with an endorsement to further control other facets of our lives.
2. A country where broken conditions receive the needed attention rather than replacement by strong and life-controlling government edicts. One where the population remains in control of their lives.
