The Tragic Comedy :: By Bill Wilson


Barack Obama returned to the White House on April 5th for the first time since leaving office to join forces with Joe Biden and Kamala Harris and yuck it up with each other in some sort of presentation over extension of socialist healthcare.

You remember the Affordable Care Act—of “if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor” fame. The act was passed in midnight darkness without one Republican vote, promising to lower health insurance. Well, it was all a lie. Doctors were not really retainable, and healthcare insurance soared as the government took its chunk of change over and above. And with COVID, many perished because of government-mandated treatments that didn’t work.

That’s Obamacare, folks.

Nevertheless, these intrepid defenders of physical and mental health met at the White House for a jolly good reunion to pay homage to the 2010 passage of socialist healthcare. Harris introduced Obama, who took the podium and opened with,

“Vice President Biden, Vice President (laughter)–that was a joke. (Applause.) (President Obama hugs President Biden.) That was all set up. (Laughter.) My President, Joe Biden; Vice President Harris… I confess I heard some changes have been made (laughter) by the current President, since I was last here. Apparently, Secret Service agents have to wear aviator glasses now. (Laughter.) The Navy Mess has been replaced by a Baskin Robbins. (Laughter.) And there’s, there’s a cat running around (laughter)–which I guarantee you Bo and Sunny would have been very unhappy about. (Laughter.)”

Obama tooted his own horn about all he and “Joe” accomplished and joked about how the socialist healthcare website didn’t work when it was launched.

In fact, according to a TVEyes transcription software search at MSNBC, Obama used the words “I,” “I’m,” “me,” and “my” 33 different times. Obama used the word “I” 20 times. Some things never change.

So then, Biden takes the podium and begins with,

“My name is Joe Biden, and I’m Barack Obama’s Vice President. (Laughter and applause.) And I’m Jill Biden’s husband. (Laughter.) By the way, the only reason Jill is not here today: She’s working. (Laughter.) She’s teaching. And so, I just want you to know that’s why she’s not here. Good afternoon, everyone. Mr. President, welcome back to the White House, man. It feels like the good old days. (Applause.) Being here with you brings back so many good memories. We just had lunch together, and we weren’t sure who was supposed to sit where.”

We can only imagine the real reason Joe didn’t know where to sit.

And so, the publicity stunt continued with the news media laughing and applauding all the way. It would be funny, except it is so tragic. These people, full of themselves, bragging on all they did. Yet the economy is in shambles. There is no border security. And US foreign policy is an international laughing stock.

Isaiah 2:12 says, “For the day of the Lord of hosts shall be upon every one that is proud and lofty, and upon every one that is lifted up; and he shall be brought low.”

That day cannot come soon enough.
