Vice President Joe Biden is always good for a laugh.
Like when he tries to defend the disastrous Obamacare rollout by claiming that “we may not get to seven million, but if we get to five or six million, that’s a hell of a start.”
Why is that so funny?
For one thing, not even 3.3 million have signed up yet, as of the end of January. According to CBS, that’s about 75% short of original expectations.
Then there’s also the fact that, even if they do somehow manage to make it to five or six million by the healthcare exchanges’ six-month anniversary in April, that’s still an entire million or two less than projected.
I’m fairly sure that missing the mark that badly isn’t anything so positive as “a hell of a start”… unless he’s talking about a much more literal hell.
If that’s the case, we can take Biden seriously. For the first time in his entire political career.
