On NBC’s Meet the Press, host David Gregory said that Obamacare was to President Obama as Iraq was to President Bush. “Everybody looked at Bush through the prism of Iraq,” Gregory explained. “Here, I think people are going to look at Obama through the implementation of Obamacare.”
There is only one problem with this: Iraq was a bipartisan effort based on the strongest intelligence available. Obamacare was a wholly partisan disaster from the start, and a victory on Iraq was wrested away by a pacifist Democratic Congress and President Obama’s precipitous withdrawal of troops.
