“No man has a good enough memory to be a successful liar.” – Abraham Lincoln
No matter our memory, we will never be successful liars, because our mental capacity is far less grand than our lies require. In that way, our species is blessed. It is our inability to lie at full capacity that allows us to uncover corruption. While we may be blessed with a keen BS detector, the flip side to our unreliable memory is our inability to remember who the liars are in the long run.
The key to a long con is the forgetfulness of the victim. Just look at any politician whose scandals rocked the nation, and you will see that after a short period of time, their indiscretions have been relegated to the backs of our collective consciousness. Well, allow me to clarify. Replace the word “politician” in the last sentence with the word “Democrat.” It seems that only Democrats benefit from the great American memory loss syndrome. This is because the Democrats have the mainstream media scrubbing their life stories. For example, Obamacare.
Obamacare is an unmitigated disaster, and most Americans are beginning to understand that as they see their own premiums rise, and their insurance canceled. This train wreck has begun to stir up some animosity toward the president and his allies in the Senate. If Obama were Republican, he could bet on a swift kick in the pants come the November mid-term elections. Like a hammer, the media would relentlessly beat the failures of the Republicans into the minds of the voters, urging them to make a change in November. Even if the Republicans delayed the policy that had such a negative effect, they media would make sure that the American people knew that the delay was a political tactic. And rightfully so. But because the failures are the result of their lord and savior’s policy, Obamacare, they will scrub the minds of average Americans.
According to Breitbart:
“The Obama administration’s latest admission that the law is untenable will allow insurers to continue offering health plans that do not meet minimum coverage requirements dictated by the Affordable Care Act. By the administration’s decision to allow policy holders to keep their current plan, even though they will not meet the requirements, Democrats will avoid having to contend with another wave of policy cancellations in the critical weeks before the election.”
Obama—in a move about as stealthy as a punch to the groin—has decided to delay the implementation of yet another part of his disaster law until after the mid-term elections later this year. To anyone with an ounce of common sense, this is a cheap political tactic. Obama knows that if he doesn’t delay large portions of his signature legislation until after elections, the Democrats will lose big time.
It’s not Obama who should be embarrassed by this; it’s us. You know why? Because come November, we will have all forgotten just how bad Obamacare is. We will walk into the voting booths, and check the names with the little D next to them. We will be satisfied with our choices until Obamacare kicks back in, and we collectively realize what idiots we were.
This is why it is of the utmost importance that Republicans stick to the message. We need to act as the balancing act for the mainstream press. Everything the Democrats, and the media want Americans to forget must be brought up constantly, and with razor sharp clarity. If we don’t, by November, average Americans will not even vaguely remember how damaging Obamacare is. Amnesty is a distraction. Wealth disparity is a distraction. Obamacare is the target the Left wants Americans to forget. We have to make sure we get a bull’s eye.
