As pundits and politicians dissect the carnage of ObamaCare, a serious question demands an honest answer: At what point did the president know his plan to nationalize one-sixth of the national economy was not ready for the October 1 launch?
If, as he pleads with every controversy swirling around his administration, he did not know, his incompetency demands his removal from office.
But it is inconceivable that Barack Obama would not know the status of his signature legislation, his very legacy.
He knew, and he had a duty to his country to delay the launch, as so many had called him to do.
But this is a man who does not understand civility. He did the opposite.
He allowed a partial shutdown of the federal government in order to harm the credibility of his Republican critics.
