Five thousand young soldiers dead — thousands came home missing body parts that don’t grow back — a trillion-dollar war with such corruption that billions of dollars were unaccounted for. George W. Bush assured the American people that he had proof Iraq had weapons of mass destruction. As blunders go, this ranks up there with Gen. George Armstrong Custer’s blunder.

And, if you believe like the hierarchy of the Republican Party, Obama’s blunder is the blunder of all blunders. It is the crown jewel of blunders. This one could bring America to its knees and collapse the world’s economy. We could be seeing the beginning of the end. All of this because Obama assured the people they could keep their health insurance plan if they wished. As it turned out, not everyone will be able to do this. I have purposely exaggerated the things that could go wrong because of Obama’s blunder, but so has the Republican leadership.
