If you need proof that smart people sometimes say stupid things, this assertion by Charles Krauthammer is Exhibit A. He claims that starving ObamaCare will give the Democrats an excuse for its inevitable failure, and provide them with a scapegoat (i.e. evil Republicans).
He evidently can’t see that they will never admit it’s a failure, no matter what happens. I mean, these people are still claiming that the Romneycare debacle is a success. And they are going to blame Republicans for everything bad that happens no matter what they do:
And, considering that Obama’s health care Czar has now proven beyond all doubt that he intends to make law by bureaucratic fiat, defying Congress and the will of the voters, it should be pretty obvious that defunding is our only prayer of killing this beast.
