Poster boy for Obamacare website launch is a ringer
What's a leftist to do when a cherished program fails embarrassingly? Of course, create a phantom success, and publicize it relentlessly. And that is exactly what has happened with the disastrous launch of Healthcare.gov and the assorted state websites intended to enroll people in Obamacare.
Obamacare found its poster boy for "success" in one Chad Henderson, who claims to have successfully enrolled where others have encountered nothing but frustration. As Chad wrote on his Facebook page:
I've now been interviewed by The Wall Street Journal, Washington Post,Chattanooga Times Free Press, The Huffington Post, Enroll America, and POLITICO!! Those stories will be published in the coming days. I have a press conference call with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services later tonight. Also, local folks..... my interview with Kimberly Barbour WRCB-TV will be aired TONIGHT at 5:30pm on WRCB Channel 3 Eyewitness News so be sure to check it out thanks for all your support!
As Twtichy noted:
Wow, that's a lot more coverage than most people were able to score from a visit to the broken health insurance exchange website. Another amazing coincidence: Henderson lists himself on LinkedIn as an Organizing for America (i.e., @BarackObama) volunteer working to continue the president's agenda.
In fact, as it turns out, Chad has a long history as an Obama activist.
The left is able to acquire and hold political power solely because it has mastered the techniques and controls the organs of propaganda. It works in the short run, and the startegy always is to distract the public with something else before the truth comes out. Hwoever, the problems with Obamacare aren't going to go away.
If the media who publicized Chad's purported success had any integrity they would reveal he is a plant. But don't hold your breath.
