Schieffer: Gov’t Shutdown, Obamacare Rollout the Dumb and Dumber of Washington

Face the Nation host Bob Schieffer put a pox on both the houses of the government shutdown and the troubled Obamacare rolllout on Sunday morning, comparing the twin disasters to the film Dumb and Dumber, and assigning them the status of Worse and Worser.

“Is ‘worser’ a word?” Schieffer wondered. “Turns out it is. We looked it up. The shutdown was the worst, but this thing is worser.”

“It was the Washington we’ve come to know: all talk, all the time,” Schieffer continued, denouncing both the poor rollout and the critics who were “foaming at the mouth” over it. “But at the end of the day, [it was] just another example of how government seems incapable of making things better, and it never seems to learn…There may be lesson here: if those involved would spend less time refining their talking points, and more time actually trying to make things work.”

“The way this thing is going,” Schieffer concluded, “it is a good thing we have a word like ‘worser.'”
