Obama Blames Republicans for Inability to Blame Republicans

President upset with lack of finger-pointing options

WASHINGTON D.C. (Rhodes Media Services) -- With his signature legislative achievement, the Affordable Care Act (ACA--better known as ObamaCare--deteriorating on a daily basis, President Obama is lamenting the complete lack of blame he can pin on Republicans.

Standing in the Rose Garden, flanked by a gallery of people who aren't Republicans that he has had to blame instead for the disastrous ACA rollout, the President gestured to the people and expressed his disgust that not one of them was a Republican.

"For the sake of clarity, let me be perfectly clear: these fine, incompetent people behind me, they should be Republicans," said the President. "But, they're not. They're unfortunate second-rate programmers, middle managers, and even some random people I pulled off the street, who I had to wag my finger at in a disappointing manner in an attempt to distance myself from this catastrophic legislative embarrassment. No one is madder than me that not one of these people is a Republican."

Because not a single Republican in the House or Senate voted for the ACA, and because the ACA carries with it the name "ObamaCare," Obama has found it very difficult to deflect blame from Democrats generally and himself particularly for the ongoing rollout failure.

Obama, who at times openly embraced the term "ObamaCare" before the rollout, has subsequently attempted to refer to the healthcare reform as the "Affordable Care Act," although he was overheard on a hot mic suggesting renaming it "RepubliCare," just so he could almost blame something resembling a Republican.
