0bamaCare Website Now Officially the Most Incompetent Thing Obama Has Ever Done

Sure there’s a lot of things to choose from. But I think we have a winner.

The ObamaCare website, which estimates have placed at anywhere from under 100 million to 400 million to just under 300 million to 634 million dollars, not only tops even Solyndra, but couldn’t have been designed any worse if Joe Biden had tried making it in his spare time.

It’s all the worse for Obama Inc. which boasted of being web savvy only to unveil this...


That’s okay. They’re using 1890′s economics in 2013.


So the website was only tested four days before launch by a government agency that had little to no experience with websites on this scale.

How could a plan so perfect have gone so wrong?

Barack0bama: The Edsel of Presidents

Obamacare and the Edsel: A Tale of Two Lemons

Last month, as the President, HHS Commissar Kathleen Sebelius, and their media toadies hyped the imminent launch of Obamacare’s dysfunctional insurance exchanges, few bothered to observe the 56th anniversary of “E-Day.” Don’t remember E-Day? This, believe it or not, was how the delusional leadership of Ford Motor Co. referred to the September 1957 rollout of another great American flop — the Edsel. That misbegotten vehicle, whose goofy name has long since become synonymous with “spectacular failure,” had much in common with Obamacare. Both were based on bad ideas, full of much-ballyhooed features that didn’t work, and were despised by the public.

The bad ideas for both boondoggles were hatched as little more than marketing ploys. >>>

In both cases, the hype continued to receive far more attention than the development of the product. Edsel was already a household word before there was a car upon which to rivet the name. A mere three months before the its debut, the paucity of photos showing the entire Edsel forced Newsweek to run a lead story with a cover that showed only a wheel and part of its front bumper. Likewise, the basic elements of Obamacare remained a mystery even as it was debated by congressmen and Senators who obviously hadn’t read the bill. This horrifying reality was forever memorialized by Nancy Pelosi when she advised the American people, “We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what’s in it.” >>>

This difference in reactions to failure dramatically highlights the primary reason for repealing Obamacare and replacing it with market-based reform. As the Edsel flop demonstrates, businesses in the free market are quite capable of making colossal mistakes. However, when they do so and the customer rejects their products, they make the necessary adjustments. And, despite the widely believed myth that the market fails to work for health care, any private enterprise that had produced an unpopular mess like Obamacare would by now have shut it down. But the President won’t even consider delaying it. Why? Because his customers are required by law to avail themselves of his third-rate services.

Whereas the potential buyers of the Edsel simply grimaced when they finally saw the thing and walked out of the showroom, the President and his congressional accomplices have arranged for you to be fined if you refuse to buy their ugly, overpriced, and dysfunctional product. The only way to avoid buying and paying for Obamacare is to fire the people who conceived the bad idea and fouled up its implementation. That’s what elections are for. November 2014 offers a good opportunity to start cleaning house.

Edsel = a Mercury sucking a lemon.
0bamacare = America sucked dry by a 'lemon'.

I'm sure that someday it will be debated which move was his worst but it is much harder to be objective when you are one of the game pieces.
I would suspect that when all is said and done his worst decision will have been a foreign policy one rather than domestic, the full consequences of these wont be known for years, all we need do is look back at Carter.
