Videos: Some are marking ObamaCare’s anniversary …

posted at 9:15 am on March 23, 2012 by Ed Morrissey

On Wednesday, The Hill reported that Barack Obama wouldn’t do anything to celebrate the two-year anniversary of ObamaCare, his signature legislative achievement.  That might have to do with the fact that a majority of voters wants it repealed, and even a plurality of Democrats (48%) want it rolled back in whole or in part.  Still, just because Obama wants to be a party pooper doesn’t mean that others aren’t celebrating.  The RNC, for instance, has this brief spot called “ObamaCare’s Lonely Birthday,” but which could also be titled, “It’s My Party and I’ll Cry If I Want To”:

Next up, the NRSC reminds us of the promises made by Obama and Senate Democrats two years ago, and just how well those promises have worked out:

This year, let’s resolve to give the Democrats their two ObamaCare birthday spankings — one in the presidential election, and the other in Congressional elections.

It is pretty comical watching the ‘rats distance themselves from a law that had been a recurring wet dream of theirs for the last 50 years.

Good videos.

Hey Nancy, (Pelosi)…..the fog is clearing.

Fascist-Democrats have to whip up phony arguments because they can’t run on their record.

Now that you say that, it’s pretty surreal. This is the freakin’ Grail for them, and they did it. And Nanna misquoting the Declaration of Independence is the depth of the “celebration” — – ?

These guys are going to need vatious and sundry therapy here in a minute.

Love the “You don’t trust me?” from Claire McCaskill at the end of the second video.

HELLo NO!

Here’s a good one the GOP Senate just released.

Your “Holy Grail” analogy is better than mine, the ‘rats really did think they had stumbled upon it after so many decades of rabid, fruitless searching. Now they don’t want to drink from it even though it has the power to make everything perfect? I guess they “chose poorly”.

Forgot to mention this banner that’s hanging outside the RNC Headquarters in D.C.

Per his usual brilliant self, Iowa Hawk sent this tweet a little while ago.

WHERE IS THE THREAD FOR ROMNEY’S OP-ED IN USA TODAY?

…considering that is the rebuttal to angryed contingent of concern trolls.

liberal4life on March 23, 2012 at 9:27 AM

…too bad your folks weren’t celibate!…then we would have had a reason to celebrate.

KOOLAID2 on March 23, 2012 at 9:49 AM

On April 12, RomneyCare will turn 6. How will our brave standardbearer Willard be marking such an important milestone for his child? I hope there’s a pony at the party. I love ponies.

235 views so far… that’ll make a difference!

But we’ll love it once we know what’s in it. It’s just that we we won’t know what’s in it until we pass it the fall give it a year give it two years what health care law?

The cartoon bill is one page. More softness from the GOP if you ask me.

PBHO is reduced to taking credit for oil pipelines in Oklahoma that didn’t require his approval and a no-brainer decision to terminate the most wanted man on Earth.

What a sad-sack PBHO has become, and to think it was only a few years ago that the date-nights to NYC and the styrofoam columns were all the rage.

Re-re-posting. It already has a headline thread, Kevin Madden.

Great videos. ObamaCare will pound the Democrats all over again this year and 2014

Truly the most suicidal political moves I’ve ever seen.

Can’t always trust the YouTube count, especially if a conservative message is contained within the video in question.

I did just check, and both videos now have 300+ views, so at least the counter is moving on these.

Happy Birthday!

And now for a blistering retort from our resident trolls:

Good one. Nany-Nany-Boo-Boo!

Is anyone else sick & tired of reading demands for particular threads ??
Geeze.

Those of us who were honest about what this massive entitlement program knew its cost would skyrocket but the sheer number of waivers granted is IMO the most striking aspect. The majority of Americans didn’t want it but giving a pass to your Union money donating buddies…. corrupt and outright criminal. Period.

Yakko77 on March 23, 2012 at 11:40 AM

Here’s to hoping ObamaCare doesn’t have any more birthdays to come!

fbcmusicman on March 23, 2012 at 12:02 PM

The first video is silly, but it makes its point well. The second is great, showing the most Dem Senators getting contradicted by facts recited on occasion by non-Dems. Love the kicker at the end.

Now, if I only felt like Mitch McConnell actually meant it, I’d be excited.

L.N. Smithee on March 23, 2012 at 1:26 PM

HA, please, don’t call it ObamaCare, because it is NOT.

Call it the Ogama Affordable Care Act, then mock it incessantly. It is anything but Affordable or Care.

Schadenfreude on March 23, 2012 at 1:59 PM

“Nobody cares about ObamaCare anymore you racist, Hilter, bible thumping, gun-totin’, grandma hatin’, islamaphobic, homophobes!!!!!! It’s all about “THE WAR ON WOMEN, STUPID!!!!!!!”
