And here we though the spin from Kathleen Sebelius was pathetic. Up next: DNC moron Brad Woodhouse, best known for his obnoxious behavior on Twitter. You see, a nationwide meltdown coupled with bumbling incompetence is just awesome to Brad.
The speakers found a cheerful spin for the widespread website breakdowns. Brad Woodhouse, communications director for the DNC, crowed: “This morning, the best outcome you could possibly have: All across the country, websites are slowing down because people are going on the exchanges to find out what their options are and to enroll in the Affordable Care Act. And no Tea Party or government shutdown is going to stop that from happening!”
Senator Harry Reid also took an upbeat perspective to the websites’ technical difficulties, invoking the words of a billionaire tech entrepreneur. “I had a meeting less than a year ago out in California, the San Francisco area, with one of the original founders of Google,” Reid said. “He told me when they first came online, oh, did they have problems. They had problems because too many people wanted to use Google! Their computers kept crashing! Well, we have a few problems today. Why? Because in New York alone in the first few hours, two and a half million people want to sign up.”
Not really. It was more people were like roadside gawkers looking to see the horror show unfolding. And they weren’t disappointed.
Another theme: The Affordable Care Act is the law. “The Affordable Care Act is law,” said Mary Kay Henry, the president of SEIU. “Can you say it with me, brothers and sisters? The Affordable Care Act is law.”
You know what’s also law in most states? Bans on late-term abortions. But that doesn’t stop these people, does it?
