You know how under ObamaCare, if you like your health plan, you´ll be able to keep it? That´s the swell-sounding promise President Obama has made scores of times since signing into law his grandiose transformation of American healthcare 43 months ago. Turns out, like so many Obama promises, it´s not true. [Snip] Now, NBC News is reporting that Obama and his healthcare sales team knew all along that would happen.
Nobody that I know, who voted for this man, gives a darn about any of this bad news on Obamacare. To them he´s still the smartest, and coolest president, and much better in every way than that evil Bush.
The morons who voted for this Marxist would do it again. These fools would never admit they were wrong. They aren´t smart enough to know they were wrong. How many times have we hear heard their mantra; "we won". That tells you that destroying the country is of little importance to them. The only thing that matters is that their side wins.
Conservatives need to produce ads highlighting the insanity of the "one size fits all" rules for "compliant" insurance. Women past menopause do not need maternity or infertility coverage! How stupid is a law that mandates that?
Everyone running for office needs to repeat this continually.

We knew he was lying, but maybe the bigger question is why, after 5 years, are CBS and now NBC digging into Obama´s dirt? He can´t Constitutionally run again and he´s hurting the so-called Dem brand for Clinton.
Obama operates from a Utopian Marxist view of the world... along with his miscreants. I believe they are fully prepared to make 2m working families furious about losing their HC... as just spoils of reaching their goal...
ACORN, now called Navigators, have federal grants to invade churches, schools & even door to door... to register 12m new Medicaid & Dem voters while they´re at it.
So far, more than 80% of so called ACA sign ups are Medicaid.
When your entire life is a lie, such assertions are but necessary little fibs. It is the casual mastery with which he first lies and then expresses surprise and indignation at the revelation of the truth he always knew that is the most impressive thing about Obama. He may not have deserved the Nobel Prize, but I would be the first to nominate him for an Oscar.
The year that is drawing toward its close has been filled with the blessings of fruitful fields and healthful skies. To these bounties, which are so constantly enjoyed that we are prone to forget the source from which they come, others have been added which are of so extraordinary a nature that they can not fail to penetrate and soften even the heart which is habitually insensible to the ever-watchful providence of Almighty God.
Fallon: Last week, America’s longest-married couple celebrated their 81st wedding anniversary. They were all over the news. When the couple saw themselves on TV, they said, “Good for them.” Letterman: The only good news out of this ObamaCare debacle is it´s nice to know someone knows less about computers than I do. Fallon: Toronto´s troubled mayor Rob Ford now says he´s getting professional help. The professional´s name is “Cinnamon."
Standby for holiday launch! Remember back in eighth grade the kid named Joel who got straight A´s? And everyone pretty much hated him because he was doing what we all silently knew we were supposed to be doing? Well now, in the week that brings us the predictable TV news of massive Thanksgiving travel delays and Black Friday insanity comes official statistical word that the Joel´s of America have already finished all their Christmas shopping. Almost one-in-ten Americans are already all done!
Hi, everybody. Over the past couple months, most of the political headlines you’ve read have probably been about the government shutdown and the launch of the Affordable Care Act. And I know that many of you have rightly never been more frustrated with Washington. But if you look beyond those headlines, there are some good things happening in our economy. And that’s been my top priority since the day I walked into the Oval Office.
One of the dangers of speaking in public for politicians is putting their mouth on cruise control. The media´s questions are generally so predictable. And the pols become so familiar with reciting replies to certain contemporary topics that they´re tempted to turn off the brain and just spout the day´s approved talking points. Unlike many officials this long into elected service, President Obama has stuck with his teleprompter. It ensures he utters the vocabulary words pre-polled by his communications strategists for effectiveness and resonance with voters.
Barack Obama is not the first president to duck a direct rhetorical comparison with Abraham Lincoln on the anniversary of the 16th president´s Gettysburg Address, arguably America´s greatest speech. But Obama is the most surprising. Rather than travel a mere 65 miles to attend the 150th anniversary celebration of the revered speech by the president who ended slavery, the nation´s first African American president hunkered in his White House fortress.
Fallon: Cornell scientists create a robot that can hold a knife. Or as robots will tell their grandkids, "That is when the revolution began." Conan: Climate change talks in Poland focus on China, world’s biggest polluter. May get awkward tomorrow, when China buys Poland. Leno: A new world record today in the 100 meters. Set by Congressional Democrats running away from ObamaCare.
If by "working" she means entertaining millions of Americans with late-night jokes that turn President Obama´s promises into guaranteed laugh lines and threaten the political viability of his stuttering second term. "President Obama met with American Indian tribal leaders this week. He promised them, ´If you like your medicine man, you can keep your medicine man.´" -- Jay Leno. “The marketplace is working, people are enrolling," claims Sebelius, who´s from Kansas. If by “enrolling,” Sebelius means a total of 777 people in each of the 35 state exchanges being run by the feds during enrollment’s first 33 days.
Hi, I´m Senator Ron Johnson from the great State of Wisconsin. President Obama said he wants to fundamentally transform America. So far, his attempt to transform our health care system has not been pretty — with ObamaCare, he did far more than just fumble the ball. Contrary to his repeated promise, that ‘if you like your health care plan, you can keep it,’ millions of Americans are not only losing their insurance coverage, they are losing access to the doctors and treatments that have kept them alive.
Hi, everybody. On Thursday, I visited a steel plant in Cleveland, Ohio to talk about what we’re doing to rebuild our economy on a new foundation for stronger, more durable economic growth. One area where we’ve made great progress is American energy. After years of talk about reducing our dependence on foreign oil, we are actually poised to control our own energy future.
President Obama uttered a surprisingly revealing 23-word sentence Thursday that reveals so much about his thinking and why his second-term is shaping up as worse than Jimmy Carter´s last. But, first, let´s get this straight right off the bat: President Obama is not a dummy. He acts like a dummy, an arrogant one at that. The chief executive of the United States tries to convince the world he´s a dummy, bizarrely claiming he didn´t know so many stupid, illegal, corrupt, partisan, lying things were going on in his administration lo these past 1,760 divisive days.
Great news! No agreement yet in the nuclear weapons talks with Iran. Squeezed by the weight of international sanctions, the rogue regime recently agreed to talk about not pursuing a nuclear weapons program. Since no one believes Iran is not pursuing weapons development, the sticking point then becomes verification, basically allowing international inspectors to tour Iranian facilities. In the double negative double-speak of diplomacy, if you´re not developing weapons what´s not to see? But Iran will let inspectors into only some places, not others.
Everyone has a favorite recipe, find it in the back of a kitchen drawer, call your mom, see if you still have that dog-eared copy of the Joy of Cooking. It´s on the back of an old electric bill stuck inside the back cover. Find it and post it for all your LCom friends. If you have a special request let us know, someone can find it somewhere.
Conservatives have for years attempted to put our finger upon precisely why Barack Obama strikes us as queer in precisely the way he does. There is an alienness about him, which in the fever swamps is expressed in all that ridiculous Kenyan-Muslim hokum, but his citizen-of-the-world shtick is strictly sophomore year — the great globalist does not even speak a foreign language. Obama has been called many things — radical, socialist — labels that may have him dead to rights at the phylum level but not down at his genus or species. His social circle includes an alarming number of
Those who wrote the PPACA legislation were much more brilliant than most conservatives have given them credit for. They have hidden a landmine in the way it all works that will ensure an eventual takeover of the entire health care industry by the government. Let me first clarify my professional interest. I have been a vendor of software and services to both insurance companies and providers, and therefore have a deep understanding of the health care industry and what the ACA will do to it. I do not work for any insurance companies or medical providers, nor do I own stock
Iranian officials say that the White House is misleading the public about the details of an interim nuclear agreement reached over the weekend in Geneva. Iran and Western nations including the United States came to an agreement on the framework for an interim deal late Saturday night in Geneva. The deal has yet to be implemented. The White House released a multi-page fact sheet containing details of the draft agreement shortly after the deal was announced. However, Iranian foreign ministry official on Tuesday rejected the White House’s version of the deal as “invalid” and accused Washington
Pure, sweet, schadenfreudean goodness from Politico. See now why I think there’s a chance that those new Iran sanctions pass with veto-proof majorities? Turns out, after three years and a half years of development plus two months of frantic triage to Healthcare.gov, Democrats are finally ready to hold the White House accountable for its giant O-Care fark-up. A little. “The president and his team have repeatedly assured us that the system will be working by Dec. 1. That’s when I start looking at what we have to do in our oversight function to hold the administration accountable for making it work.” Rep.
It is no secret that the Democrat party is hemorrhaging support in the wake of the disastrous ObamaCare rollout. As the Administration warns that the website will not be fully operational at the end of November, nervous Democrats are expected to try to separate themselves from Obama and his flawed health program. Politico´s Mike Allen was on MSNBC this week, saying that they are "hearing" that Democrats will be very aggressive against the program in Congressional oversight hearings next week. If Politico is "hearing" something, it means Democrats are trying to leak the information to the public ahead of the
Former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman (R) left the door open to another presidential run during a Monday panel in New Hampshire. Asked whether he ever thinks about running again — Huntsman dropped out of the 2012 Republican primary after finishing third in New Hampshire — he suggested he hadn´t ruled out the option. He closed a long response to the question, posed at Saint Anselm College, by saying: "Which is a long way of saying that I love public service. I´ll always be committed to public service. And as an itinerant public servant, from time to time, it´s hard to know where
SANFORD, Fla. — George Zimmerman had five guns and more than 100 rounds of ammunition with him when deputies arrested him earlier this month on domestic violence charges, according to court documents released Tuesday. A search warrant made public by the Seminole County court clerk shows that Zimmerman had a 12-gauge shotgun, an AR-15 assault rifle and three handguns when he was arrested Nov. 18 at his girlfriend´s house. The girlfriend, Samantha Scheibe, told deputies that Zimmerman pointed a shotgun at her during an argument and also used it to smash her coffee table. Zimmerman is free on $9,000 bail on charges
"Trust is like virginity: once you lose it it´s hard to get it back." So spoke pollster John Zogby, commenting on his latest poll on President Obama´s handling of his office. Quoted by Paul Bedard in the Washington Examiner: "Most ominous for Mr. Obama is that 57 percent now disapprove of his job. That is his worst number yet. This includes 57 percent of men and 55 percent of women; 51 percent of moderates, 24 percent of liberals and 24 percent of Democrats; 66 percent of independents and 40 percent of Hispanics. Meanwhile, a separate poll by CNN/ORC International found: 53%
Maybe it was something about what they served in the White House mess in the 1990s. Or perhaps it´s what happens to baby boomer Democrats more than a decade after leaving office. For whatever the reason former vice president Al Gore has gone vegan, just like the president with whom he once served. Gore´s recent decision to forgo animal products surfaced as an offhand reference in a Forbes magazine piece about Hampton Creek Foods, an upscale vegan product line carried in Whole Foods. Ryan Mac´s article, which posted Saturday, chronicled how wealthy investors including Bill Gates, Tom Steyer and Vinod Khosla
Alec Baldwin has been fired by MSNBC, sources say. The rage-aholic’s weekly show, “Up Late With Alec Baldwin,” has been canceled because of the actor’s foul-mouthed rant at a photographer he called a nasty name. “The decision has been made. He’s gone,” an insider at the cable channel told me. “The [parent company] Comcast guys have decided. Word is spreading through the building.” Baldwin’s dismissal was decided on partly because of his diva-like behavior toward co-workers, a source said.
President Obama lashed out Tuesday at Republican lawmakers during a Hollywood speech seemingly designed to shift public debate away from his Obamacare - and Iran-related political train wrecks and toward safer territory: jobs and the economy. [Snip] ´Instead of rooting for failure or re-fighting old battles, Republicans in Congress need to work with us,´ he declared, complaining about his opponents´ fixation on the Affordable Care Act. ´We would be a lot further along without some of this dysfunction and obstruction we´ve seen in Washington,´ he insisted,.´if we didn´t [sic] have one wing of one party that was a little less
