MARK STEYN: Why does Obama get a pass for sending a stuntman to sign him up for Obamacare?

Mark Steyn says that despite the stated need for Obama to sign up for Obamacare in person due to the complexity of it, he still sent a stuntman to do it. Steyn wonders why Obama should get a pass for this when no one else can forgo the burdens of signing up for Obamacare.

But to make an even bigger, more profound point, Steyn says this:



“Is the ruling class bound by the laws it imposes on you, because if it’s not then it’s not any kind of Republic except for the Banana kind.”

Simple, because the GOP let’s him get away with it by focusing on everything but Obamacare.

The moment we allowed our congress critters to exlude themselves from specific laws of this land is the moment we became a banana republic.

True words. We aren’t. Its time to tell lawmakers that you don’t get a dime of our tax money till you turn it back into what it was. They can’t take millions to jail.

Obama and his minions do not believe or follow our Constitution. If they did he would be impeached for many many wrongs!

By the way, I wish Mark Steyn had a radio show. Listen to him when sits in for Rush. I frankly think he doesn’t want to.

Once when he did two days in a row for Rush he said how exhausting it was.

Cause da messiah is very important. He is so very important that he doesn’t wipe his own ass. Valjar (monkeygirl) gets the privilege. We all know who is running the show. She’s right now at this very minute with him in Hawaii. Bet she even sleeps with him. Cause Reggie isn’t always available. But, know this….he’s there. Oh to be a fly on the wall;)

Obama wants to briefly put his toe in the boiling water, just so he can claim he feels America’s pain.

Galatiansch2vs20

I think he just wanted to give the eyewash of supposedly actually being in favor of his own signature piece of legislation, and didn’t deign to allow any scalding water to really soak his toe, as evidenced by sending a proxy on that signing up in person errand, which Mark so eloquently pointed out. It was also mentioned on the news Obama’s got his own medical insurance. So this sign up was symbolism over substance.

Obama sent the court eunuch to sign in for him.

I guess Eric Holder didn’t have anything else to do that day.

I am probably going to get a lot of “dislikes” and flack for it. As magnificent as a writer Mark Steyn is, and I am glad that he’s on our side. But his voice is kinda annoying.

LOL. I get it. He’s spot on. The accent is an acquired taste I guess. But that’s one thing I love about true diversity. As long as the heart and mind are in the right place.

It’s not his accent. The British accent has a certain quality about it. It’s the voice.

I find Sarah Palin’s voice very annoying but I can look past that to the message she passes on.

At least his voice is smooth and not abrasive like a couple of other talk show hosts I can name.

His voice is tiring after a while, but his spectacular sense of irony and word play make up for it.

Obama has always reminded me of the little guy that walks into a bar with two or three big guys at his side. They case out the joint and decide who they’re going to pick on. The little guy says to the big guys “go kick the shit out of that guy, he looked at me wrong” And they do just that. In the meantime the other people in the bar are asking the little guy “Why did you guys do that to that man”, and the little guy says “Hey, it wasn’t me it was those guys I came in with”. By the way, Mark is solid.

barack gets a pass. His connected crony friends get a pass. The unions get a pass. The rest of you get in line and do as you’re told.

Ayn Rand wrote out how this would all happen, as plainly as possible. Yet too many people refuse to see it when it’s staring them in the face (and believe me, everytime you use your phone or go online, it’s truly staring you in the face).

She (Ayn) certainly did warn of this and many other things that have happened and things that are coming from this commie bunch.

Sir Richard Burton (the actor, not the explorer and all around Renaissance man) played “O’Brien” in 1984.

It was his last movie.

Gotcha. Haven’t read 1984 since HS. I’ve been looking for it at the used bookstore but it seems to be a hot commodity for some reason. Next Amazon order I’ll pick one up.

What would anyone expect from a potus that will not even speak to a group of school kids without a teleprompter? When one thinks about it this fits right in with his modus operandi…

Was wondering when someone would pick up on the fact that the pre$ey didn’t have to go in person to sign up but the rest of us do if we can’t get through online. Amazing how it’s do as I say, not do as I do…foreshadowing of things to come!

Steyn is fearless in that he takes on everybody that inhibits freedom of speech as he did in Canada and even took on his editor at the RINO publication of NRO, when he speaks I always make sure to listen!

answer to your question is you only have one party in DC with R & D wings. U really do not expect the RINO/GOP to stand up to Barry do you ????

Yeah, one running at mach speed to the edge of the cliff and the other at a more leisurely pace at 65 MPH, but both very much on the path to destruction. Both looking to reap the whirlwinds of their lobbyist masters.

I wouldn’t be surprised if Steyn got hauled into court here on hate speech charges also. Probably just a matter of time with the Scoopers in line behind him.
