Within the span of a few hours Obamacare was described on the Sunday talk shows as the main reason Democrat Alex Sink lost last week in Florida’s special election race. But the blaming was bipartisan.
The first example, and perhaps the most devastating, came from former Obama White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs. Gibbs’ prognostication is devastating because Senate Democrats from North Carolina (Hagan) to Louisiana (Landrieu) and elsewhere are in the hot seat with voters in their respective states because of their votes that lead to passage of Obamacare–now implemented and largely unpopular.
The second view on Obamacare came from Republican National Committee Chair Reince Priebus who said “Obamacare is complete poison out there in the field.”
And the third take on Obamacare today came from Obama adviser Dan Pfeiffer who chose to ignore the reality of President Obama’s 41% approval ratings and said that despite his dreadful poll numbers, Obama will still be out campaigning for Democrats in the November elections that are now just six months away.
If Jolly’s win in Florida Tuesday is any indication–which it certainly is–two of these men are right and the other is just trying to put lipstick on that proverbial political pig.
