Friday Short Cuts
Charles Krauthammer predicts universal health care coverage is coming. That was the Dems’ plan from the get-go.
Insight: “Society produces rogues, and education makes one rogue cleverer than another.” —Oscar Wilde (1854-1900)
Slippery slope: “ObamaCare is a disaster on the ground. What it’s done to our system, what it’s done economically, it’s in a death spiral, and politically, it ruined the Democrats. However, there is an irony and a hidden victory over these last several years — people's expectations have changed. … [T]he country is at a point where I think it believes in universal coverage. And once you are there, the ground has shifted and Republicans and conservatives are going to have a hard time arguing for a consumer-based, market-oriented health care system.” —Charles Krauthammer (And as we’ve warned, that was the Democrats’ cunning and conniving plan all along.)
Foreign influence! “The French election is very important to the future of France and the values that we care so much about. Because the success of France matters to the entire world. I have admired the campaign that Emmanuel Macron has run. He has stood up for liberal values. He put forward a vision for the important role that France plays in Europe and around the world, and he is committed to a better future for the French people. He appeals to people’s hopes and not their fears. … I am supporting Emmanuel Macron to lead you forward.” —Barack Obama
The BIG Lie: “I affirm to you that we are raising our youth, our children, our grandchildren on a culture of peace. And we are endeavoring to bringing about security, freedom and peace for our children to live like the other children in the world along with the Israeli children in peace, freedom and security.” —Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas
Late-night humor: “American Airlines recently announced that they plan on cutting leg room in economy class, while United Airlines announced they’ll be cutting legs.” —Seth Meyers
