Quote of the day – Obamacare named

Leave it to Joe Biden to name it and Charles Krauthammer to recognize it:

I think he is the man who, perhaps without intending, has given historical context to this presidency. After all, Obama sees himself as a successor to FDR and Truman, so now we have the historical procession: the New Deal, the Square Deal, and the “Big F**n Deal.”

Hereafter forever known as the BFD.  And more literally than anyone can imagine.

  • Big F*cking America Deal.

  • I agree.  This is a BFD.
    But you know, that phrase works pretty well when said facetiously.

    “Health Care Reform… [shrug]… big f*cking deal.

    As this legislation will no doubt harm the bottom line, there will come a time for Americans to decide what they want – entitlements at great costs, or free market capitalism warts and all.
    There will, IMHO, be a revolution.  An electoral revolution, not a violent one.  And I’m not so sure it will happen as soon as you think it will.

    Cheers.

    • To hear the Democrats shreek like little girls seeing a mouse, you’d think the GOP was already outfitting the mob with guns and the home addresses of those who voted for BarackyCare.

    • I agree – it’s unfortunately going to take a lot more pain before we have a genuine political/electoral revolution.

  • Do you have a link to the original Krauthammer column?
    Love the new template, btw.  The last one wasn’t too bad, but this one is gorgeous.

    • I’m not sure it was a column, Ryan – I’ve linked to the source in the post (I’d forgotten to do so, so thanks for the reminder).

      Glad you like the new look.

  • “not a violent one” here’s hoping, I don’t really care for the idea that people might pull out their BFG 9000 and go to town to ‘fix’ this.

  • They say that Joe Biden buys shoes in sets of 3 .. 2 to wear on his feet .. the other to go into his mouth

  • Biden at the RTCA Dinner, acknowledging his propensity for gaffes, and taking a shot of his own.. “Dick Morris is quick to point out every time I put my foot in my mouth, well, Dick, at least it’s my foot…”

  • BFD is usually meant to be sarcastic and implies much tado over nothing. 

    Don’t think that applies here. 

  • looker, it was a Clinton era sex scandal, Morris was allegedly sucking a hooker’s toes while he was on conference calls with the President, or something like that. What the President was doing while he was on those calls is open for speculation.
