The Democrats are shaking off the term ‘ObamaCare’ like a thrift store jacket, as the President’s flagship legislation continues to take on water.
Okay, mixing metaphors is what I do. But you take my point, right?
It’s an age-old Democrat ploy: Create a term or appellation, wear it out until it becomes ubiquitous, and make sure that anyone who doesn’t use it knows he or she is intolerant, undiverse or maybe even danged acist. Then when it becomes synonymous with doggy doo-doo, disavow it.
You think the RG would kid you? Look at our most liberal cities. When crime rises in a given area, rather than attack the crime they change the neighborhood’s name. Hell’s Kitchen—and this is a hoot—is now Clinton. What, did a kneepad factory move in?
Los Angeles: Watts was changed to Watts-Willowbrook after the Watts riots, then to South Central when it developed an even worse rep, and when that didn’t miraculously end black-on-black violence they changed it to South Los Angeles.
Kudos to San Francisco for not changing Chinatown to Luxemburg, huh?
Just kidding. Those neighborhoods all still exist, at least colloquially, but once they get a jacket the city muthers always scrabble for distance.
This is the same mentality that changes Polar Bear Hunting into the Knockout Game; only a liberal media hack could bury that in the ninth paragraph. Oh, and by the way, all the victims are white so we may have a hate crime here.
There I’ve gone and ranted again.
It certainly isn’t all racial, either. Liberals do this to cover every godless idea they come up with, from abortion (Pro Choice) to Christmas (Happy Nonsectarian Winter Holidays!).
So own it, dudes. You know?
But now Obama and the Democrats are running from it, and before long it will be an epithet when spoken in the same sentence with his name.
Some are already saying the legislation really didn’t have a whole lot to do with Obama in the first place, so it is a misnomer.
I think not. Wasn’t it Bob Dylan who said: “Even the president must stand naked sometime”? This legislation will bear Barack Obama’s name until the nation’s capital becomes Obama, D.C.
Wait. Forget I said that.
