Yeah, when you can’t even get details on key figures right, then it’s hard to take you seriously.

Senator Paul Ryan?

I received this message in my inbox a few minutes ago. I immediately noticed a big mistake.

Friend —

This ticks me off. Opponents of Obamacare in Congress are reaching new levels of disgrace — all to save face after realizing that repeal isn’t so popular, after all.

On Tuesday, Senator Paul Ryan said this:

“We’re not hatching some bill in a back room and plopping it on the American people’s front door.” –House Speaker Paul Ryan on NBC’s “Today” show

Now, on the face of it, what’s the big deal? So what if Paul Ryan is the Speaker of the House and not a senator?

But such errors portend on bigger, more crucial matters. Such mistakes warn me of a great many things, including:

  1. a lack of professionalism.
  2. not taking the time to look for errors.
  3. a seriously partisan lack of collegiality.
  4. how dangerous and excessively political leftist activists have become.

How about we do some proofreading next time?

Makes ya wonder, mistakes or not, what is in the Obamacare bill, the Affordable Care Act. Of course, I, like so many of us, including many of our politician friends, have not taken the time to read the damn thing. It is thousands of pages! And a bore, no doubt.

Nancy Pelosi infamously said that the legislation need to pass before anyone outside the bureaucracy could know what was in it. Sadly, she’s probably still clueless on it, like everything else. Someone should ask her if she’s ever read it. Reporters, if they actually did their jobs properly, would have already done it.
