He blamed Republicans for a government shutdown and the government shutdown for Obamacare's rollout failures. He blamed "bad apple "insurance companies for his broken promise that Americans could keep their plans and then turned insurers into scapegoats last week when he offered a plan for extension, knowing future cancellations will be blamed on them.

Obamacare is self-imploding under its own ineptitude. Even if it was logistically feasible, Obama's "administrative fix" is like plugging a hole in a leaky dam with bubble gum. It may hold for a moment, but it will eventually come crashing down.

It is reassuring to know Republicans back in 2009 had the wisdom to see Obamacare for what it was. Not a single Republican voted for it while Democrats like Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) ran around the country telling Americans, "We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what's in it." Americans already know, you can sprinkle sugar on a pile of manure, but in the end it's still a cow patty.
