WH Official Blames Republicans
for Obamacare Website Problems

Breitbart´s Big Government, by Warner Todd Huston

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 10/19/2013 5:33:29 AM

An unnamed Obama administration official claimed that the White House feared GOP subpoenas would slow their work on the Obamacare website, leading to keeping its design in-house with "trusted campaign tech experts" that seemed to have spectacularly failed at creating a successful commerce website. In a Politico article lamenting the second week of failed performance of Healthcare.gov, the Obamacare insurance website, the unnamed official attempts to explain why the whole thing has been such a dismal failure: it´s the Republican´s fault. "Facing such intense opposition from congressional Republicans," Politico wrote, "the administration was in a bunker mentality as it built the enrollment

It is so Obamaesque to blame others for this pathetic incompetence. I´m surprised the "unnamed Obama administration official" didn´t include Bush by name as well.

The "petulant child" administration projecting its own failures on others. How quaint.

The audacity of this administration and its drooling supporters is breath taking. They could not get away with this infantile behavior if the media would do its job. Since that won´t happen, we need a counter balance and folks, we are it. Either we fight for the truth or Obama´s lies will swallow this country.

This is easy: the "unarmed" source is surely Dan Pfieffer, Obama´s WH Miscommunications Director, who is carrying on in the tradition of Nixon´s lawless goons, Erhlichman and Haldeman. Dan had just used his suicide vest slur on Ted Cruz and the GOP, so he had to invent a new smear to deflect blame from his messiah, Barack Ohowdiabolical.

Like Haldeman and Erhlichma, Dan would surely walk over his grandmother in order to attack the GOP on behalf of Obama. Dan most likely briefs over paid dummies like Juan Williams before Juan appears on FNC shows. Unfortunately, I can only Mute Juan W but not the perpetrator, Dan P,

The accusation is truly a howler. The very people who refused to have anything to do with O´Care and who voted en masse to delay or defund aspects of it are being blamed for its failures. Only in Obama´s America could people make this accusation with a straight face.

I am praying the GOP´s "right wing extremists" keep the pressure on. This isn´t a one-time vote, a one-issue battle. This is a full-blown war against our Constitution and against the American people.

We must win it or die trying.

When I think about how many times Rats blame Republicans for their failures, I can´t help but think that Republicans must be the most powerful, influential people in the world! Why according to the Rats Republicans can do ANYTHING because they are always the root cause of all their problems, even after all these years of being in the minority! Slap a fellow Republican on the back today and leap a tall building because we are the party of Supermen! Isn´t that just amazing!

The Liberal/Progressive answer to "You can´t fix stupid/incompetency" is always "Because you haven´t spent enough money." They´ve been doing it with education for years.
This shouldn´t surprise any of us, because of course being a "Liberal means never having to say you´re responsible."

With corrupt news media complicity, the WH is probably optimistic about selling this sophistry. Many folks believe that without Republican opposition Obama could have gotten a jobs program through that would have dramatically improved the economy.
So many things are possible when you have a compliant and ready propaganda arm at your disposal.

I could not believe Juan Williams would try to blame Obamacare´s failure on the Republicans on Fox News the other night.

His comments drew laughter from Bret Bair and the other panelists, and rightly so. When you can´t win an argument blame Republicans, Bush or Racism. Take your pick.

At that point I turned to my wife and told her that I would no longer listen to Juan Williams during debates. I´m going for the mute button.

I´ve had enough of his biased analysis. He´s a liberal party hack to the core. Why not join the administration like the scores of media journalists have done and quit pretending?

Fox would do better to replace him with Dennis Kucinich. I don´t agree with many of his opinions, but I respect them.

O´Reilly take note: I´m muting Juan on The Factor too.

All of those brilliant, logic-loving programmers are to blame for refusing to work for a company that hates brilliance and logic.

Or did they apply and simply fail to pass enough "loyalty to the Fuhrer" tests? Perhaps progressives have a different definition of brilliance and logic.

Obama does not mind appearing incompetent. It has been the hallmark of his presidency. What matters to him is his end game, which appears to be working quite nicely. Pointing fingers, blaming others an outright lying to the American people is just his means to his end. If it gets him where he wants to take us, he`s fine with it. Oh, and don`t think he`s going away in 2016. After the midterms in 2014, there will be a clarion call from the Left for a 3rd term under the guise of, the people should have the right to choose who they want no matter what is written in the law, tactic. He isn`t transforming the nation just to walk away and possibly let someone else undo his handiwork.

I was a guest speaker at a colloquium of high level healthcare technology leaders the last few days, discussing the future of healthcare systems from many different perspectives. The key term we focused on and which the general public needs to remember in order to understand the full scope of the problem is "interoperability". In simple terms, it means that at present, the multiple systems in healthcare today (government, hospitals, physicians, insurance, etc. ) don´t connect well at the basic data layer.

This problem will not go away. And the massive attempt (requirement actually) to connect them in the Healthcare.gov system will not be successful in the near term. By near term, we´re talking years, not merely months. In other words, the problems are not "glitches" or bugs, they´re systemic.

Our consensus was that they will desperately try to cobble together a kluged solution combining manual and semi-automated processes, but the core system will need to be totally rebuilt (years to do) and they will need to develop mandated healthcare data and system interoperability standards over the next 5-10 years.

There is no magic tweak here.

Now they say it´s the law of the land? We should respect the rape of the country?

The problem with Juan Williams is Fox News, roger Ailes, Hannity and O´Reilly. I cannot tell you how many times I have written to each. How many comments I have made on Fox comment line about Williams AND Beckel. I have written to Ailes using snail mail, not the courtesy response just saying your letter has been received.
Juan Williams is a graduate of the Bob Beckel School of BS, graduating 1st in his class with the honorarium, MAXIMA CUM LOUD.
HE IS ALSO A RACIST, THE REASON HE WAS FIRED BY NPR WAS FOR HIS SO CALLED INSENSITIVE COMMENTS ON MUSLIMS. Although at the time and today he was right on that one.

Since when has this White House paid any attention to minimal things like the Constitution, subpoenas, or any legal document for that matter.

They rammed through this health care law when they had control of both houses of Congress and the Presidency. They didn´t read the law, and the President has changed that law illegally and arbitrarily since they passed it. The Democrats own this law, it is their creation and it is a disaster.

So, after the whole program crashed on day one, and chaos reigns, some unnamed White House Pip Squeak blames Republicans for the Obamacare Website problems. The ones they originated. These are whiney, lying, crass and clueless people on any given day, but they still manage to exceed all levels of low expectations.

A tip of the hat to the RINO´s in the House and Senate. Surrender is always an option with these people. Some of them sell out cheap and while they get new and revised Dams, the taxpayers get screwed again.

Beckle´s slimiest trick is to constantly claim cultural and technical illiteracy as a way of deflecting any and all explanations or examples which might prove him wrong.

This followed by snarky passive-aggressive, ad hom, holier than thou attacks.

Flat on his belly in a sniper position, wearing a baseball cap and a flak jacket, a protester aimed his semi-automatic rifle from the edge of an overpass and waited as a crowd below stood its ground against U.S. federal agents in the Nevada desert. He was part of a 1,000-strong coalition of armed militia-men, cowboys on horseback, gun rights activists and others who rallied to Cliven Bundy´s Bunkerville ranch, about 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, in a stand-off with about a dozen agents from the federal Bureau of Land Management. The rangers had rounded up hundreds of Bundy´s cattle, which

A Washington woman has come under fire over claims her PTSD caused by online harassment and Twitter trolls is equal to that of military veterans. Melody Hensley was diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder 16 months ago following online abuse, which she says is the result of her being an outspoken feminist and atheist. She caused upset to many military veterans and their families and friends when she claimed her PTSD from Twitter trolls was as bad as mental anguish suffered by those who do active duty. Ms Hensley, head of an organisation promoting secular ideas, has suffered from PTSD for more than

Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) is warning the Obama administration to not issue an executive order requiring that all new guns be made with biometric technology, such as finger-print recognition or bracelets. Cornyn raised the issue in a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder, who in testimony earlier this month highlighted biometric bracelets and fingerprint identification as a safety issue. “Your testimony has raised serious concerns for my constituents given President Obama’s track-record of acting beyond the scope of his legal authority and your hostility to the individual right to self-defense under the Second Amendment,” Cornyn wrote. “Is the Obama administration currently exploring

The man who was almost president graced Honolulu with his presence Tuesday and walked us through a "seminar of sustainability." By turns a university professor, a wry observer, a recovering politician, a joke teller and a Southern preacher, Al Gore fired up an audience of thousands at the Stan Sheriff Center to believe that global warming can be stopped. But it´s possible only if each of us does our part. "Ultimately, we are going to win this thing," he said, one of many statements met with hearty applause. He also managed to repeatedly gush over fellow Democrats Neil Abercrombie and Brian Schatz, who

Over two dozen widows in Alabama were dropped from their health care plans due to Obamacare, WHNT reports: "More than two dozen widows who were married to retired Madison county employees, lost their health insurance coverage earlier this year. And now one commissioner says it´s time to give it back to them. The change was sparked by the new federal health care law, but whether or not coverage can actually be restored really isn´t clear," said the anchor. Says the reporter, "Madison county commissioner Roger Jones says no one realized just how much the new federal health care law would change

Vice President Joe Biden joined the popular photo-sharing website Instagram on Wednesday, posting photos of himself in Pittsburgh for a speech about job-training grants and his first selfie with President Obama. "Found a friend to join my first selfie on Instagram. Thanks for following and stay tuned. –VP," read the caption for the photo of Biden and Obama in what appears to be the back of a motorcade. Boston Red Sox baseball player David Ortiz snapped a selfie with Obama at a White House event and tweeted it to his followers earlier this month.

In it, Mr. Biden is shown as an out-of-focus background to the in-focus, in-your-face pair of Ray-Ban aviator-style sunglasses placed at a strategic tilt on his desk. The sunglasses are front and center. Mr. Biden is the hazy afterthought, seated in the background, reading some papers. As the New York Post

Being a "distinguished professor" of economics at the City University of New York is nice work if you can get it. "During year-one," the boss explains in a letter to the new hire, "you will not be expected to teach or supervise students." In subsequent years, "you will teach one seminar per year." In addition, the boss informs the distinguished professor that he "will play a modest role in our public events" and "will be asked to contribute to the buildup" of one of the university´s programs. The pay is $225,000 a year, plus a $10,000 expense budget--and the distinguished prof

A hotel executive and Democratic fundraiser has pleaded guilty in New York to witness tampering and conspiracy to evade campaign finance laws. Sant Singh Chatwal appeared Thursday in federal court in Brooklyn. The candidates were not identified. Chatwal had raised at least $100,000 for Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton´s 2008 presidential campaign against Barack Obama. "Mr Chatwal deeply regrets his actions and accepts full responsibility for the consequences. He looks forward to resolving this personal matter," a spokesperson for Chatwal told CNBC on Thursday. According to the Justice Department, Chatwal made more than $180,000 in donations to three candidates via straw donors, who

Mr. Chatwal, 70, who runs a chain of luxury hotels and other companies, allegedly broke federal law by using straw donors–whom he called “conduits”–to make more than $180,000 in illegal campaign contributions to three candidates in an effort to gain access and influence federal regulations, according to a federal complaint.

President Obama has refrained from picking favorites in the race to succeed him and paid Vice President Biden a strong compliment without issuing anything close to an endorsement. ‘I´ve got somebody who I think will go down as one of the finest vice presidents in history, and he has been, as I said earlier, a great partner in everything that I do,’ Obama said in an interview with CBS released Thursday. The President will continue to walk a proverbial tightrope for the near future as all eyes are cast on Hillary Clinton, waiting to see if the former Secretary of State decides

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

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

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

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

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.

With Easter soon approaching, the Rev. Al Sharpton on Wednesday drew parallels between the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the resurrection of President Obama’s political career. Joining the “Tom Joyner Morning Show,” Mr. Sharpton said that his message for this Easter is that “no matter what the world may do to you unfairly, no matter how you’re crucified — nailed to the cross at home, or in your personal relationships, or on the job — that you can rise if you don’t lose yourself during the hard times and the challenges.” The reverend went on to say that Christ endured so much humiliation and unearned suffering leading up to his death,
