The Affordable Care Act’s rollout has left much to desire, something of which Democrats, including President Obama, are painfully aware. And perhaps unsurprisingly, Obamacare’s “failure to launch” has Republicans glibly plastered all over conservative networks saying four words no one ever wants to hear: “I told you so.” And in true GOP fashion, they’re also jumping the gun to celebrate American liberals’ demise. Columnist Charles Krauthammer even went on Fox News to state that what we’re witnessing is “not just Obamacare [and] the Obama administration unraveling [but] the collapse of American liberalism.” Michele Bachmann also added her 2 cents to the “victory lap” when she announced that the Obamacare flub has her looking like a “genius.”

Thankfully Stephen Colbert has a facetious skit or two to prove Krauthammer and friends wrong.
