Judge Jeanine Crushes Kathleen as Sec’y Sebelius Stumbles On

Posted: December 15, 2013 at 12:23 pm   /   by

With her biting sarcasm and Mediterranean pulchritude, Judge Jeanine Pirro filets Kathleen Sebelius yet again for her ghastly Obamacare management and rollout.

This time the judge focuses on Sebelius’ astonishing move to mimic Hillary Clinton by asking her own inspector general to examine the failed rollout, focusing on those dastardly “contractors” who let her down. Does anyone think that investigator will even interview Sebelius let alone find any fault with her management?

Madam Secretary, your inspector general won’t ask you these questions, but I will:

You had over three years and several hundred million dollars in your pocket. We have the world’s best software system engineers and managers right here in the US private sector.

Why didn’t you use them?

With a snap of your fingers, you could have gathered executives from your choice of Amazon, Google, Amex, Facebook and major world banks, not to mention the health insurance companies themselves. Some of those executives are already cronies of your administration.

You could have even asked Amazon if they could clone and adapt their superb high-volume ordering, payment, and security systems to Obamacare’s particular requirements.

You had the time, and you had the money.

So why didn’t you do it?

Was it because your choices were dictated by politics, ideology, rewarding friends, and punishing enemies? Is that why you awarded no-bid contracts to a failure-plagued Canadian firm with school-classmate connections to Michelle Obama?

Madam Secretary, when competence, experience, and delivery are essential, the Barack Obama / Valerie Jarrett, old-school, Chicago-ward-style political cronyism system just won’t cut it. It may work well for elections — it certainly did for the President.  But now We the People are left to pay the price of its cataclysmic failure, some of us perhaps with our very lives, as Obamacare’s fallout spreads across our national health care infrastructure.

What to do now?

If you haven’t already, I suggest you swallow your pride and call Mitt Romney for some sage advice. After his experience in Massachusetts health care and the Salt Lake City Olympics turnaround, I can’t think of anyone with better experience in a situation like this. And he’s a mensch, a person of integrity and honor. In spite of how your party treated him in the last election, he’ll help in good faith.
