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.

Monday night, MSNBC’s Chris Hayes used an essay on Slate about the Bundy Ranch standoff and race as a jumping off point to discuss how this story would be different if rancher Cliven Bundy’s armed supporters were black. “When is it that people take up arms against the federal or state government, point their arms at federal agents and face no consequence for it?” Hayes asked. “The answer is to that is hardly ever.” Hayes went on to imagine how Fox News react to the New Black Panthers if they decided to “greet law enforcement with long guns.” Or what if the

BUNKERVILLE, Nev. — Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid says “something is going to happen” to get Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy to stop letting his cattle graze on federal land. “It’s obvious that you can’t just walk away from this. And we can speculate all we want to speculate to what’s going to happen next,” Reid told KSNV-TV. “But I don’t think it’s going to be tomorrow that something is going to happen, but something will happen. We are a nation of laws, not of men and women.” Reid called militias staying at Bundy’s Bunkerville ranch “domestic violent terrorist-wannabes.” Sen. Dean Heller, R-Nev.,

Attorney General Eric Holder criticized drug sentences doled out under “the old regime” in a video Monday announcing the Obama administration’s “Clemency Project 2014.” “In 2010, President Obama signed the Fair Sentencing Act reducing unfair disparities in sentences imposed on people for offenses involving different forms of cocaine. But there’s still too many people in federal prison who were sentenced under the old regime and who, as a result, will have to spend far more time in prison than they would if sentenced today for exactly the same crime. This is simply not right,” Holder says in the video. President Obama could

Several weeks ago the World Affairs Council of Philadelphia sponsored a debate–more a discussion–between me and Thaddeus Mason Pope about end of life care under the Affordable Care Act. He supports medical futility. I oppose it. We went from there. I began my presentation with the quote in the headline above–asserting that Palin’s term “death panels” may have put a spear through the heart of Obamacare. I then said: People are afraid of centralized bureaucrats dictating whether Craig’s [the moderator’s terminally ill babies) children can have medical care, whether my 96-year-old mother can have medical care, whether people with disabilities can have medical

Corruption: The senator who once guarded funding for a cowboy poetry festival in his home state now thinks those who stand in the way of his family´s increasing fortunes for defending their land are domestic terrorists. Cliven Bundy now finds himself being called a "domestic terrorist" for disputing the payment of grazing fees to a federal government he believes does not or at least should not own the 84% of Nevada that his cattle graze upon. "Those people who hold themselves out to be patriots are not. They´re nothing more than domestic terrorists," said Sen. Harry Reid last Thursday. "I repeat: What

After Breitbart Texas reported on the U.S. Bureau of Land Management’s (BLM) intent to seize 90,000 acres belonging to Texas landholders along the Texas/Oklahoma line, Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott questioned the BLM’s authority to take such action. “I am about ready,” General Abbott told Breitbart Texas, “to go to go to the Red River and raise a ‘Come and Take It’ flag to tell the feds to stay out of Texas.” Gen. Abbott sent a strongly-worded letter to BLM Director Neil Kornze, asking for answers to a series of questions related to the potential land grab. “I am deeply concerned about the

Although this editorial was written more than 20 years ago, just replace "Clinton" with "Obama," and it all applies perfectly to ObamaCare, from the phony promises to the bogus financing scheme to the massive new bureaucracy. It was this editorial and as many as 100 more like it in IBD that helped spare the nation the tragedy that would have been HillaryCare. The 246-page first draft of President Clinton´s health care reform proposal tells us plenty about the type of people in the White House these days.

´Imperial presidency" perfectly describes what the Obama administration has become as it increasingly violates the limits on its power defined by the Constitution. Criticisms of how President Obama is overstepping his authority are now being heard from all sides of the political spectrum. A remarkable 33-page report posted on the Internet by House Majority Leader Eric Cantor proves how imperial the Obama administration has become. This easy-to-read report, which can be downloaded from majorityleader.gov, details dozens of examples where the current occupant of the White House is exercising powers that the Constitution doesn´t give him.

The American middle class, long the most affluent in the world, has lost that distinction. While the wealthiest Americans are outpacing many of their global peers, a New York Times analysis shows that across the lower- and middle-income tiers, citizens of other advanced countries have received considerably larger raises over the last three decades. After-tax middle-class incomes in Canada — substantially behind in 2000 — now appear to be higher than in the United States. The poor in much of Europe earn more than poor Americans. The numbers, based on surveys conducted over the past 35 years, offer some of the most detailed

President Barack Obama is marking the 44th Earth Day with a carbon-emitting extravaganza, spending more than 15 hours on Air Force One and 15 minutes aboard the Marine One helicopter. Not including his motorcades in Oso, Washington, the site of a recent devastating mudslide, his trip will consume an estimated 35,565 gallons of fuel. According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, the statistics arm of the Department of Energy, burning each gallon emits 21.1 pounds of carbon dioxide, bringing the president´s Earth Day carbon footprint to more than 375.7 tons.

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

Global sea levels have risen by 8 inches (20cm) since 1880 and scientists predict they could rise up to 3ft (98cm) by 2100. But despite the UN’s recent threats of war, famine and extreme weather, such a dramatically different world caused by sea level rise can be hard to imagine. To help picture the future, Martin Vargic, an amateur graphic designer from Slovakia, has created a map depicting the planet with sea levels around 260ft (79m) higher than they are today. He imagines what Earth would look like if the ice sheets surrounding the North and South poles melted, releasing

Harry Reid isn’t backing down from his claim that rancher Cliven Bundy’s supporters are “domestic terrorists.” It’s astonishing rhetoric given the White House’s characterization of the mass shooting by a genuine terrorist, Major Nidal Hasan, who killed 13 Americans at the Fort Hood Army base after yelling “Allahu Akbar!” (God is great.) Rather than labeling Hasan’s actions “domestic terrorism,” the Obama administration is prosecuting him for having committed “workplace violence.” Democratic rhetoric is become ever more desperate and overheated as we approach the November midterm elections.
