This headline from the Knoxville News-Sentinel:
“Haslam: Insure Tennessee is not Obamacare”
Anytime you are still arguing semantics on the eve of a vote, you have already lost your case. Remember Clinton’s “It depends on what the meaning of the word ‘is’ is?” That was just before his impeachment hearing. Then there is Bill’s new BFF Barack Obama, who seems congenitally incapable of spitting out the words “Islamic terrorists” when every damn fool from Nairobi to Nashville knows that is who we are fighting. When Islamic nut jobs shoot up an Army base, Obama prefers to call it “workplace violence.”
Even the governor’s hand-picked Attorney General, Herbert Slattery, had to admit Insure TN is funded and administered by ObamaCare.
But the topper is this quote from the governor’s speech last night (as reported by the Dean):
The governor said that, in a meeting with governors, the president was asked by a Republican why he did not make Medicaid a block grant program – just giving states the federal money and not imposing rules on how its spent.
Obama’s “candid” reply, according to Haslam: “Because I don’t trust you to take care of the least of these.
Then just why in the hell are you asking legislators and the taxpayers of Tennessee to get in bed with and trust the very person who invented Obamacare and who told you to your face he does not trust you?
Just quit digging, Governor. The hole to bury this thing is big enough already….
