Obama says ‘sorry’ for misleading
people on Obamacare. It seems
miracles can happen…

Telegraph [UK], by Tim Stanley

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 11/7/2013 11:58:03 PM

Blind men see, the lame walk, dogs speak Latin. And in other news in miracles, President Barack Obama just apologised for something. In an interview with NBC news on Thursday he said "sorry" that some Americans are losing their health insurance as a result of Obamacare coming into effect--and for promising that this wouldn´t happen. [Snip] His words will be small comfort to the millions who risk losing their existing plans, but it´s still a moment of historical significance to hear Barack Obama apologise for screwing up. And he screwed up big time. We now know that members of the

Supreme Emperor is not sorry for anything.
The Son of Satan lip syncs the words his speech writers enter into his teleprompter. Bring us comfort and joy our god of gods and our dear beloved Savior. May the host of Angels that surrounds your holiness bring food stamps and phones to us in our time of deepest need Oh Beloved One. We worship and praise Thee for Thy Gifts of wonder and joy and perfect goodness. To The we art always grateful Our Savior. One thousand thank you´s is just the beginning for our gratefulness and thankfulness for the goodness within your heart of hearts our Beautiful Deliverer. All thanks to Thee we pray in your name.

This was not an apology for lying. An actual apology for lying would include a repeal of Obamacare. As the Lying King is as intent as ever to force it down everyone´s throats (= more people losing their coverage because of his lies), we can safely assume this "apology" is the thinnest and most cynical of charades, meant only to mollify and distract. He´s not sorry at all - he´s glad he got away with it and is looking forward to "single payer" and the total collapse of the private insurance industry.

This is certainly not the first time Obama has lied to the American people. It does appear to be the first time Americans have been smart enough to notice. What is even more infuriating however are the sanctimonious Democrats up for re-election whining about this bill that they enthusiastically voted for yet 3 years later still obviously have never read. This is liberalism on parade and demonstrates exactly who these people are. This year it is private policy holders getting shafted - next year it is workers with employer subsidized plans. That´s where the rest of the 93 million are coming from. Will America be smart enough to notice that?

And BTW, my dog, who is tongue tied, can only "mark-mark" at the postman, so he never mastered Latin. However he amazed the mail guy, whose name isn´t Mark (it´s Homer) by asking him; "how many myths can a myth maker myth, if the myth maker is truly pithed"?

Mark was struck dumb, and couldn´t finish his lament about it taking another miracle for the the USPS to keep his insurance in force for another year.

This creature has no apology. Did he not, during the government shutdown he instigated, tell his flying monkeys to make things as difficult for WTP as they possibly could? The regime wanted nothing more than to squeeze, pinch and poke US. This deleting of our policy is one step beyond what he began when instructing his team to remove all the handles from the water fountains, or closing all memorials to the veterans whereby the publiic in general were banished from participating. Banning US from our House in which he is allowed to squat. He is one cruel bastid, one mealy mouth punk. And many in this God Forsaken Country look to him for guidance and leadership. Satan has relocated and no longer in Hades....he resides in the WH. He is far from finished with US. Still so much to do and so little time.

We should start calling it, Obamaidon´tcare. The man is as cold hearted as they come. He is not concerned that his signature "achievement" (have to put that in parentheses) is hurting Americans. His concern is that it will be slowed down or stopped. He must plow through on the implementation now or the pain he knows is coming down the road because of the delays he promised his cronies.

My question is why the Republicans don´t make a huge issue of the fact that all Americans are not being treated the same under this law. The ACA on its face is discriminatory. The fact that the president handed out exemptions for different groups is unconstitutional. Where is Congress? Are they not concerned with Obama´s usurpation of their role in government. He is NOT a king or dictator. We have a Constitution and Obama is ripping it to shreds. There are three EQUAL branches to provide checks and balances. We are equal under the law. We do not have a caste system in this country.

All Ldotter comments on this article and the other Must Read reassures me that Obama´s words were "lipstick on a pig" and they didn´t make Obamacare any prettier.

Our next task is to get through to all Republican Congress critters - maybe Joe Wilson could chair the group - that the apology doesn´t "fix" anything. Obamacare is still a "pig in a poke". The only fix for Obamacare is to REPEAL it. The only fix for our once-great nation is IMPEACHMENT!

What if the O´care website is simply a dummy site, deliberately unworkable, as a stalling tactic while the insurance companies drop millions of people? What if everything about the O´Care rollout is phonied as a diversionary tactic?

Here, everyone is making such a big fuss about how poorly the website is working, but
what if the site was simply a magnet to divert attention of the media, columnists and the GOP away from behind the curtain, like how the IRS is going to enforce the law?

He´s still lying and that wasn´t an apology that was a stalling tactic because the democrats gnawed on his backside and he had to say something.
All I heard was the whistling sound he makes with his teeth when he lies through them. Nothing more. Misleading? It´s all lies and the words Pelosi said about ´pass the bill to see what´s in it´ still rings in my ears.

For all of those who find themselves with their health insurance policies canceled and without the financial means to afford Obamacare, try telling your doctor that you plan to pay your bill with an apology from Obama.

Good for the Telegraph.

You can´t fool the Brits. They know a cold-blooded fraud when they see one and aren´t shy about speaking up about it. Go to any pub there and find out what is on folks´ mind, or spend an hour and a half in the car with a London cab driver and get the real skinny on what they think is going on here. A high level of disgust for Obie in the UK.

Funny, though. They talk about America´s LoFos and our dim sheep like they live here. Good ones, mates!

What is Vladimir Putin’s game? The recent unrest in eastern Ukraine has been presented by the Kremlin as an autonomous phenomenon, an upsurge of patriotic feeling among embattled ethnic Russians who long for the protection of the Motherland against what they see as a neo-nationalist regime in Kiev. It may be true that the initial impulse came from locals acting without Russia’s direct involvement. But it is becoming clear that, just as in Crimea, many of the “separatists” are not just taking their orders from Moscow, but are very probably Russian troops in paper-thin disguise. The key difference is that,

Ireland, once a rock-solid Christian country, has now become so intolerant of Christian beliefs that its leading opponent of gay marriage may be forced to leave the country because of fears for his personal safety. After repeated threats and obscene verbal attacks, John Waters, a nationally-known newspaper columnist, author and broadcaster who supports Christian family traditions, says he is now unable to go into the centre of Dublin at night because he fears for his own safety. The attacks began after Waters threatened the state-owned broadcaster RTE with legal action after a drag queen called ‘Panti Bliss’ appeared on a television programme

Huge numbers of homes - many in the steep hills around the city itself--as well as a women´s prison were emptied of their residents in a bid to save them from the destruction.

As any fule kno, Benjamin Disrael--one of the greatest PMs there ever was--was Jewish. Yes, he converted to Christianity. But Ed Miliband doesn’t even believe in God and describes himself as a “Jewish atheist”--so we’re talking about ethnic identity here, not religion. And Disraeli was keenly aware of his ethnicity, calling himself "the blank page between the Old Testament and the New".

The percentage of family doctors supporting the UK Independence Party has surged from 0.3 percent at the last general election to a new high of 7.3 percent, almost double the amount planning to vote Liberal Democrat. The figures, compiled by GP magazine, also show a sharp decline in Conservative support. At the last election, they were easily the most popular party, with 45 percent of General Practitioners (GPs) planning to vote for them. Now, just 16.6 percent continue to back the party. Labour are now the most popular party among GPs, although they still only have 18.4 percent support. This may

The UK Independence Party (UKIP) has hit a record high ComRes poll rating, as the Conservative and Liberal Democrat parties both drop points. UKIP is now polling at 20 percent, while Britain´s traditional third party, the Liberal Democrats, have sunk to just 7.

The poll results also reflect the two debate victories that UKIP leader Nigel

Who throws a shoe? Honestly! That would be 36-year-old Alison Ernst of Phoenix, Arizona, who was charged Thursday night with disorderly conduct by the Las Vegas Police Department after allegedly throwing a shoe at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. According to NBC News, who spoke with a Secret Service official, the U.S. Attorney’s office has declined federal prosecution. Ernst was wearing shoes on Thursday night when she attended a speech Clinton was giving in Las Vegas, but apparently brought an extra one specifically to throw at the former secretary of state. The official said the incident appeared to be “premeditated.”

There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water.

A Nevada cattle rancher appears to have won his week-long battle with the federal government over a controversial cattle roundup that had led to the arrest of several protesters. Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally. Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a "range war" against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of

Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) is now accusing the Keystone pipeline of being a cancer risk. Her first point was that the pipeline “will bring 830,000 barrels of dirty tar sands oil into our nation every day.” She then segued to point #2 by asserting that the heavy tar sands oil will put people who live near refineries at risk for cancer: Significantly higher levels of dangerous air pollutants and carcinogens have been documented downwind from tar sands refineries, and in these areas people are suffering higher rates of the types of cancers linked to these toxic chemicals, including leukemia and

Let me obliterate a bit of confusion here: the Obama administration attempted to go to war with a rancher in Nevada. Let me amplify a little bit of truth: They tucked tail and have returned home. And let me add a bit of clarity: they had no choice! As the nation began to become familiar with the plight of the family of Cliven Bundy, many of us harkened back to another standoff in which the Federal government attempted to bully it´s outcome: Waco, Texas and the Branch Davidian massacre. It is telling that in the Nevada case the feds pulled out so

President Obama stood Friday with the Rev. Al Sharpton and accused Republicans of trying to keep millions of Americans from voting, in a fiery speech days after new revelations about Sharpton’s past as an FBI informant. “The right to vote is threatened today in a way that it has not been since the Voting Rights Act became law nearly five decades ago,” Obama told the annual convention of Sharpton’s National Action Network in Manhattan. Obama’s appearance represented a presidential seal of approval of Sharpton’s role as a civil rights activist, amid the new revelations about how Sharpton used a wire to record

They’re both qualified, respectful of each other (shocker!), and represent the vast majority of middle America. So what’s not to like about another Clinton/Bush race for 2016? When you mention the prospect of Clinton vs. Bush 2016 a funny thing happens. First, there is the reflexive response: "Oh no, not again. We don´t need more dynastic politics in this country." But upon further reflection, you realize Jeb Bush vs. Hillary Clinton would be a great race and actually good for the country. Let´s review. QUALIFICATIONS—THEY’VE BOTH GOT THEM. Barack Obama won the presidency because in an election where the premium was on change, it mattered little

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

Say what you will about Sens. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Ted Cruz (R-Tex.), but they know a train wreck when they see it. They also know when to separate themselves from the cranks and the losers on the right. Although both supported the shutdown and were heartily supported by tea party groups in their own Senate races, neither one has endorsed Matt Bevin in Kentucky, Milton Wolf in Kansas or Chris McDaniel in Mississippi. In fact, Cruz’s office confirms he hasn’t endorsed anyone in the primaries. He may weigh in after the primaries. Rand Paul has endorsed two very establishment

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion. Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative social issues as public

A brazen flash mob has been caught on camera storming a California store and making off with $20,000 worth of sunglasses. Surveillance footage shows eight women piling into a Sunglass Hut and crowding around display cases. Shielding workers from what they´re doing, they quickly stuff dozens of fashion specs into their bags. A store clerk pleads with them to stop, before running out of the shot to get help and dial 911. The thieves then all bolt outside and escape in a waiting SUV. The incident occurred at the Valencia Town Center mall, in Santa Clarita, at 3 p.m. on

It’s hardly been a secret that in recent years the moderate center of the Democrat party has been driven away and what remains is a conglomeration of disparate blocs which, to date, the party has been able to treat as if there were no conflicting interests between them. As the midterm elections approach and the administration’s incompetence, along with the distaste for the president’s signature ObamaCare legislation, drive the party’s chances down further, the make-believe coalition of opposites may well crumble if the opposition doesn’t blow it. Democrats hope to retain control of the Senate and recapture the House by driving
