Bill Clinton: When It Comes
to Obamacare, GOP
‘Begging for America to Fail’

ABC News, by Benjamin Bell

Original Article

Posted By:Scottyboy, 9/29/2013 9:44:58 AM

The Republican Party is “begging for America to fail” by rooting for President Obama’s signature health care law to fail, former President Bill Clinton said during an interview for “This Week” with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos, “I’ve never seen a time — can you remember a time in your lifetime when a major political party was just sitting around, begging for America to fail … I don’t know what’s going to happen. But I’ll be shocked if it fails,” Clinton, who attempted during his first term as president to overhaul the country’s healthcare system in the early 1990s, said during an

Comments:
Nice try and a bit desperate bringing out this disgraced liar to shill for this legislative disaster known as 0bamacare.
No Bill, the GOP is not now "rooting" for 0bamacare to fail, but informed Americans have been screaming from the rooftops for the past four years that this poorly designed government takeover WOULD fail, you duplicitous pervert.
Informed Americans were right and YOU and your party, including the dolt in the White House, were WRONG.

Old Bill is a very practiced snake oil salesman who will say anything as long as people are stupid enough to listen to him.

My unawake eyes just saw "BEGGING FOR AMERICA TO FAIL" I thought it was a rtuism about 0bama "about time someone in the GOP is showing some actual spine". On closer read it holds, only a gimmecrat fights with that much sprirt.

Ah yes! Bill Clinton! Who can forget the draft-dodging, tax-evading, dope-smoking, money-laundering, pants-dropping, weenie-wagging, wife-cheating, womanizing, self-serving, hornswaggling, hypocritical, double-dealing, finger wagging liar, influence peddling morally-bankrupt sleaze-bag who questions the meaning of the word “is”, who was convicted of perjury, impeached and disbarred, and will forever be known as the bicycle seat-sniffing trailer park troll that dragged our nation’s morality down to the level of an Arkansas outhouse by getting serviced from a barely legal intern in the Oval Office and introducing the term “blow job” into everyday political jargon. With countless scandals from Travelgate to Elder-Scams, his dishonesty is only exceeded by his unbridled greed, so remind me again why his comments bear any resemblance to the truth and why they have any relevance???

If you think we know the worst of Bill Clinton already, you´d be wrong. There are others in the Democrat leidership elite who know the real stuff and for them "the Clinton Body Count´ isn´t a sort of joke but a very real fear.

I believe there really is something seriously wrong with this man; the GOP is not wishing America would fail, but they are intelligent enough to know if 0bamacare is implemented, America will definitely fail. Our economy cannot withstand such a huge expense; our healthcare system will be destroyed by the death panels and regulations imposed by this oppressive government. Healthcare will be rationed and very difficult to get.

FTA: "...I don’t know what’s going to happen. But I’ll be shocked IF it fails” and “I just think that when all these dire predictions don’t come out, IF they don’t--"
The Parsing King must be worried because why else would he be using those 2 big "IF" disclaimers? If he truly believed there´ll be no problems implementing Obamacare he´d say, "It´s NOT going to fail" and "All of these dire predictions WON´T come true."
He´s not as slick as he used to be.

Out of embarassment, Bill kept Hillary on a short leash and hid her away for several months after the Hillarycare disaster.
Unfortunately, King Barry still won´t acknowledge his disaster and his handlers can´t make him disappear for the next three years.
If Slick Willy cared about America he would ask obama to step down for the good of his party and the country......yeah, right.

Clinton must be psychic or else he listened in to my phone call from Rasmussen Reports last night when they polled me about my thoughts on Obamacare. Of course they called it the Affordable Care Act--a real laugh line for me.

My dearest friend was listening to my end of the conversation and he said if he hadn´t heard it he would not have believed what I told the pollster. (Make that the electronic recording device asking the questions.)

They actually asked me if I was a Democrat, Republican, or Independent; how I voted in the last election; how I would vote in the next election, my age and if I was male or female.

I almost said aloud ´´I hope it fails.´´

Bubba the liar.

It´s already failing Bill, all by itself. The problem is that it´s taking the rest of us down with it. We want to decouple ourselves from this boat anchor before we go down for the third time.

As to desperation, liberals are just as desperate for this to succeed because they no if it fails it will be a blatant failure that will undermine their big government agenda.

Go away Bill.

Barack Obama got quite the handful on Thursday, April 10, but it was all for a good cause! As the President of the United States was boarding Air Force One with his wife Michelle Obama, a gust of wind blew up her skirt. Barack quickly stepped in and grabbed the First Lady´s billowing skirt to help her avoid a wardrobe malfunction and embarrassing Marilyn Monroe moment. Earlier in the week, another famous lady on the global stage suffered a similar snafu, but no one was around to help her -- not even her prince!

The President is no economic illiterate, despite what conservatives think. He understands basic macroeconomics just fine, thank you – but with a twist. Mainstream Democrats worship at the altar of the New Deal. It’s an article of faith that massive government spending pulled America out of the Great Depression. (With all respect to Paul Krugman, the truth is more complicated, but that’s not within the scope of this article.)The president’s view of spending, deficits and debt is not merely Keynesian theory run amok. Its origins and objectives are far more terrifying. Where the traditional Democratic playbook for economic downturns was provided

A majority of Americans believe that President Barack Obama’s signature health care law will be repealed. A new Rasmussen Reports poll found that 62 percent of likely voters believe that Republicans will repeal Obamacare, which recently marked its fourth anniversary. Only 23 percent of those polled believe that the health care law has been a success, compared to 46 percent who describe the law as a failure. Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, a potential 2016 presidential candidate, offered a Republican alternative to Obama’s health care overhaul last week, saying states should play a greater role in containing health care costs while

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as
