Double Washington Post Downer For Obama: Milbank and Marcus Say It's Ov-ah

By Mark Finkelstein | November 16, 2013

Somebody cue the Debbie Downer horn. How bad are things for President Obama?  In recent days, the Washington Post has brought us a double-barreled downer blast from two pundits who normally support the president.

All you need to know about Oceander Milbank's and Ruth Marcus' columns you can glean from their respective final sentences, which read: "Maybe the president does understand that the game is over." And "Can he recover? I’m sorry to say: I’m not at all confident." Wah-wah, indeed! More after the jump.

Is this the nadir for President Obama?  Down so deep, can things only get better for him? I'm reminded of the old joke about a very downcast man who suddenly hears a voice: "don't worry, things could be worse."  And sure enough, things got worse. 

Because as bad as the website rollout and the cancellations are, wait until the death spiral--caused by the young and healthy not signing up--sets in, causing premiums to spike and/or bankrupting the system.  Happy days are here again!
“The time is now near at hand which must probably determine, whether Americans are to be, Freemen, or Slaves.” G Washington July 2, 1776

Imagine the collective sigh of relief when ACA is behind us. So many people are fearful, and have no clue what each day will bring them under this administration.
