  • Sebelius resigns



    WASHINGTON — Kathleen Sebelius, the health and human services secretary, is resigning, ending a stormy five-year tenure marred by the disastrous rollout of President Obama’s signature legislative achievement, the Affordable Care Act.

    Mr. Obama accepted Ms. Sebelius’s resignation this week, and on Friday morning he will nominate Sylvia Mathews Burwell, the director of the Office of Management and Budget, to replace her, officials said.

    The departure comes as the Obama administration tries to move beyond its early stumbles in carrying out the law, persuade a still-skeptical public of its lasting benefits, and help Democratic incumbents, who face blistering attack ads after supporting the legislation, survive the midterm elections this fall.

    Officials said Ms. Sebelius, 65, made the decision to resign and was not forced out. But the frustration at the White House over her performance had become increasingly clear, as administration aides worried that the crippling problems at HealthCare.gov, the website set up to enroll Americans in insurance exchanges, would result in lasting damage to the president’s legacy.

    Even last week, as Mr. Obama triumphantly announced that enrollments in the exchanges had exceeded seven million, she did not appear next to him for the news conference in the Rose Garden.
    More Obamafail "success," I'm sure.

    Someone had to take the fall. I expect she will turn up in a think tank or as a lobbyist or something. No doubt her future financial and career success was already ironed before she was offered her walking papers.

      I wonder if she got the OFA job that Lois wanted.

        I wouldn't be surprised. That's Chicago Style politics: just shuffle the dummies and criminals around until the heat is off.

                Well, now. It turns out that Burwell got her payback ...

                ... for orchestrating the expensive and intentionally-harmful shutdown of places like the National Mall during Obama's government shutdown, an utterly unprecedented move in the history of government shut-downs. During the shut-downs of the Carter administration, no one closed the National Mall. During Clinton's shut-down in 1995-96, I personally visited the National Mall on a visit to DC, so I know for a fact it wasn't closed and barricaded then. During the Democrats' shutdown of the government in 1990, I personally visited the Lincoln Memorial, and it wasn't shut down (the Washington Monument was, but not the Lincoln Memorial). I also personally visited a private inn on the Blue Ridge Parkway that year, and it wasn't walled-off by by NPS rangers getting a promise of future overtime pay.


                So we all know (even those who won't admit it and will try to deny it) that Obama tried punitive measures against the rest of the country for not agreeing with him. We all already know that Obama is a petulant little tyrant who seeks "punishment" of his "subjects" when they don't bend to his will. This is not deniable by anyone with one eye and a grain of sense. Even my Leftist extremist brother has finally come around and realized that Obama is a child-king tyrant. This is simply known by any sane person who has paid attention in the least.



                So, Obama is now rewarding a lieutenant for her loyalty in punishing the peasants for their disloyalty.
