Rooting for reality

Good to see someone admitting a mistake Monday.
Too bad it was James Taranto, taking the blame for another lousy Obama speech.
Who thinks this is a great line - "The Affordable Care Act is not just a website. It's much more."
Try it like this.
"Thanksgiving is not just turkey. It's much more."
"Halloween is not just candy. It's much more."
The website was the centerpiece of the promise of Obamacare - the way to find the best deal that had been hidden before.
Instead, people who lost their insurance plan they liked - but the government didn't - can't find a replacement easily.
January 1 is not that far away.
Want to take a chance getting hurt that day - without insurance due to a balky website?
The president tried to take Republicans to task for "rooting for failure."
We're just rooting for reality to intrude.
The trimmings are nice, but they don't make the meal.
Like the website was supposed to make Obamacare work.
