Obtuse, but not too stupid

The Washington Examiner recently reported that Senator Jay Rockefeller (D-WV) is now bellyaching about his and the Democrats' Commucare, supposed health care plan.

The Examiner called him "...one of the towering architects of Obamacare..." The paper then quoted his criticism that Obamacare is, "...so complicated and if it isn't done right the first time, it will just simply get worse," and that "Obamacare rivals tax reform in its capacity to confuse Americans."

As one of the "towering architects" of this socialistic mess, if he had read the legislation, which I doubt he did, he would have known how untenable it is. His Senate cohort, Max Baucus (D-MT), who claims to be the author of the bill, at least admitted he did not read his own piece of legislation. And ex-Speaker Pelosi (D-CA) said, "We have to pass the legislation to find out what is in it." These three are members of the most irresponsible body of idiots on earth.

I am unaware of any member of the United States Congress who voted for this mess who has admitted to reading the legislation. Now, a few Republicans read the bill and warned how bad it was.

Instead of complaining and whining about something he supposedly created, if Rockefeller had any honor, he would admit what a mistake he made and ask American taxpayers to forgive him for the lies, deceit and fraud of Obamacare and set about to correct his mistake.

However, he is just another limousine liberal socialist Democrat without honor and without the manhood to admit his mistake

The lame duck Senator, glued in the country club Senate almost forty years, apparently doesn't know with what disdain the public views Congress. Currently, about thirteen percent of people polled approve of the job Congress is doing. Nearly eighty-one percent polled disapprove. I think Congress falls below aluminum siding salesmen and telephone solicitors in the public's mind. And by almost two to one, poll respondents say the government is headed in the wrong direction.

Senator Rockefeller and Members of Congress, that is your legacy.

British historian Sir L. B. Namier once described Sir Nevile Henderson, Great Britain's Ambassador to Germany, as, "...Conceited, vain, self-opinionated, rigidly adhering to his preconceived ideas...Obtuse enough to be a menace and not stupid enough to be innocuous, he proved un homme néfaste. I don't know how well the first part of that quote fits Senator Rockefeller, but the second part fits him well.
