Obama is trying to play a game of “Pin the Jackasses Tail on the Elephant. After spending the first two years in office bitching, moaning and crying about how the Republicans were blocking his healthcare bill he’s now trying to blame them for the law. It’s a pretty clear indication of how stupid he believes Americans are. the sad part is many of his supporters are so blind that they’re willing to believe almost anything he says without question.

“The Affordable Care Act is a bipartisan plan and one that we think is constitutional,” Deputy White House press Secretary Josh Earnest told reporters on Wednesday afternoon.
He also referred to the individual mandate as the “individual responsibility” clause of the bill, in an attempt to distance the administration from the term individual mandate.
