So who’s your daddy now? -- By Wesley Pruden, The Washington Times

** FILE ** Cuban ladies smoke the country's famous cigars. (AP Photo)The dilemma of Barack Obama and his loyal Democrats is the gift few Republicans could have imagined only a fortnight ago. It's the gift that keeps on giving, and Obamacare is no bastard child. The president is the daddy who used to be a prouder papa than he is today. The cigars he passed around to celebrate this baby are exploding all over the place.

Everything the president does puts him deeper in the hole. His grudging concession Thursday that Obamacare stinks like the baby's diaper was followed by the new promise that he would fix it with instructions not to enforce the law.

All the president's men and some of his women are racing for the exits, hurrying to catch a bus, train or plane to anywhere but here. Bill Clinton bailed (though Bubba may have Hillary's presidential prospects more in mind than the pain of others that he says he can still feel). Howard Dean, he of the famous shoutout of all the states, says Obamacare is the disaster that the daddy can't fix. "I wonder if he has the legal authority to [fix it], since this was a congressional bill that set this up," he says, perhaps not having heard the news that this administration suspended the Constitution long ago.

The barrage of sad stories quickens: A black college must dispense with insurance because under Obamacare mandates, it can't afford to provide it any longer. The bad news is that only 100,000 customers have signed up for Obamacare; the worse news is that 5 million Americans have been dropped by their insurance providers. Another woman with cancer tells how she was dropped from her insurance, a victim of Obamacare fantasy guidelines. Even Jimmy Carter's grandson, a state senator running for governor in Georgia, calls it "a mess."
