The Crisis Arrives
Weekly Standard, by Noemie Emery

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 11/8/2013 6:02:26 PM

In March 2010, Barack Obama placed a giant bet on the docility and stupidity of the American people, when he decided in the face of three huge electoral warnings to force his health plan down the unwilling throats of the American people. And by November 2013, it was clear he had lost. It was not going to work. It would never be popular. And it was falling apart on its own. The HealthCare.gov website unveiled on October 1 had immediate problems, which were quickly revealed as the tip of the iceberg, as many worse things lay below. “If you like

I hope this unmitigated disaster causes the ruination of his presidency. He deserves every bit of the scorn and contempt thrown his way. He has no one to blame but himself. As Emery says: He built it. He owns it. And now it’s all his. Indeed.

Very well put, #1.
It´s not just his, all the dems that voted for it have their fingerprints on it too. Let´s hope they don´t escape their just deserts.

There is no question anymore that Obama is the worst president ever, beating out generally recognized failures such as Carter, Harding and Grant. Why? Because no one has been as dishonest and disrespectful to the American people nor as generally harmful to the country. We may not survive this presidency.

Dear DimWit Party --

If you like your 2012 presidential nominee...
you can keep him.

Preferably in a cage somewhere.

Don´t forget to feed him.
Maybe Furious George would like something from the menu of his Banana Republic
regime... he´s already slipped on the banana peel, might as well eat the snack.

Once the Senate and House are both under GOP control in 2015...
expect a repeal vote on O-BomberKommieKare.
Maybe your POS POTUS will get to veto it.
If he´s still in orifice, that is.

Obamacare is a disaster for America. It is not a disaster for Obama and the Democrats. Obamacare is still the law of the land. Obama is still president. Sebelius still heads the biggest government department. The elite Republicans still prefer their perks to doing what´s best for the country.

The most delicious part about all this is that the ACA has little Barry´s name on it. Therefore both will be inextricably synonymous with the term ´epic fail´.

Great article, but it´s too late... The healthcare insurance industry has been changed for good. It will take years to recover. People are losing their insurance, insurance companies are raising rates, laying off employees, businesses are laying off employees. This is a disaster, just like most of us Ldotters knew it would be.

And yes, excellent post #1!!!

Maybe Obama will finally learn who actually built this. He seemed to have an inability to understand that people do actually build businesses. Well, Obama, my boy. Welcome to reality. YOU did build this. Obamacare is your baby. Now comes the lesson everyone learns the first day they go into business. What you build you are responsible for. When things go wrong, you are held accountable. No buck passing. No excuses. You wanted Obamacare. You lied to achieve it. You failed to take responsibility for the rollout. You have no real solution to fix it. Therefore, we´re going to have to let you go. That´s what happens in the real world. Since that is not an option in this case, go sit down behind your desk (keep your feet off of it) and lame duck your way through the rest of the debacle that has been your presidency. Your golf clubs have been confiscated too and Air Force One is no longer at your disposal.

FTA: "If Obama had sold a vacuum cleaner under these terms, he’d be facing prosecution for fraud."

This is the second thread today to use the word "fraud" to describe Obama´s actions. If the electorate accepts this characterization, the nation is saved.

Prediction: As Obamacare crashes, it cannot be enforced.
1) People are not going to go without health insurance
2) Government is too broken to solve anything of this magnitude - it will not be a factor.
3) The free market will inevitably take over.

We may end up better off than ever before.

The evil built into Obiecare is beyond comprehension. It´s as much a dem recruiting tool as it is a supposed health insurance system. What with Acorn navigators with criminal records, intrusive privacy questions (voter profile data banks) with poor security and the corrupt IRS as the enforcer it is pure evil.

I´m not making any excuses for Obama, but he´s just not bright enough to do a proper fraud himself. He´s an actor who does a workman-like daily performance like a two performance daily Broadway play. Valerie Jarrett and the back-stage staff tell him what to do and when to do it. Barry sits on his skinny butt between performances and watches basketball or smokes weed.

C. Once you get through you will have a much better policy which you will like
D. Any coverage losses are due to greedy insurance companies.

Ever since the disastrous roll out, I have noticed a definite shift in the media from using the term "obamacare" to the use of "ACA". I refuse to allow that. I will continue to call it obamacare, unless the term democratcare catches on.

They named it obamacare in hopes of claiming credit for this wonderful new entitlement, so now they need to own the blame....forever!

Meanwhile back at the ranch; former president George Bush is laughing his boots off!

For 14 years the Democrats including the current President, Barak Obama, demonized Mr. Bush, throwing every insult in the book at him.
Not once did Mr. Bush retaliate or comment on the sophomoric and childlike behavior by the left. He consistently showed maturity, patience, and fortitude in dealing with the Alinsky tactic of ridicule.

Mr. Obama’s line “I Won” now belongs to George Walker Bush.
I’m now thinking Guy Falkes was right. Remember, remember! The fifth of November

November 2013 will always be remembered as the fall of the WOULD BE KING, AND TYRANT BARAK HUSSEIN OBAMA

#8: My fear is as is yours. The insurance companies are in a shambles. I just hope they keep the present policies in reserve.

#15: I´ve never felt Obama is nothing more than a dumb front man for this communist push. That VJ is the man behind the curtain is also a ruse. This attempted coup by communists is far, far greater than these two miscreants. They are nothing more than dupes who are making millions as front men for the real men behind the curtain.

I have every confidence that the American Spirit of ingenuity and determination will rise like the phoenix. The insurance companies have a lot of money stashed away and as they say, necessity is the mother of invention. It may take awhile and may not be exactly what we had before, but rest assured, this country will rebound and move forward from this travesty.

Social Security is pretty much a very large mail room with a serious computer program or two. It´s well practiced, and if you wanted you could convert it to an equities fund in a thrice.

Modern insurance companies are also made up of large mail rooms, serious computer programs, and they are well practiced. If you wanted you could convert them to equities funds as well.

BTW, getting beyond the immediate needs on the mail receiving platform, most of these operations, including Social Security, require but a fraction of the human staff they needed even 10 years ago ~ and a fraction of even that 50 years back. They are becoming more and more mechanized, automated, computerized and roboticized ~

ObamaKKKare in contrast was literally overladen with an elaborate bureaucracy like you might have had back in Bulgaria in the 1950s ~ and then they tried to operate the revenue side with antiquated software and methods.

I´m having some difficulty getting my head around the reason why anyone thought we needed to trash the health care insurance industry (state of the art computer systems making them more efficient by the minute) and put more bureaucrats in charge of setting standards for medical practice and hospital operations when, in fact, those operations were quickly being absorbed by computer based record maintenance, analysis and communications systems.


NOTE: One of the reasons you set standards is to create more efficiency and better outcomes in processes.

So far new standards have gotten rid of my doctor, trashed my health care insurance, and made it impossible to use local hospitals!

I don´t think any aspect of ObamaKKKare is working. We are going backwards a full decade every month.

#15 sums it up perfectly. Obama is just not smart enough even to know what Obamacare has wrought. He gives speeches and interviews, and as if he were Chauncey Gardner, the media reads deep meanings into them. We are all starting to see that Obama´s amazing stupidity is the only reality here.

It´s never too late to undo this mess. Zero has written off $2billion in failed green energy fraudulent loans - the executive and congressional branches launched over a trillion in stimulus and bailouts for ´too big to fail´ banks during the housing crisis - billions went bail out the auto companies...so write off this failed $2 or $3billion Zerocare mess, charging it to the Dims and zero´s boondoggle account, restore the $700billion stolen from Medicare, give relief to the insurance companies, and allow insurance across state lines and tort reform. Prohibition was repealed...

During the Presidential election, Romney was falsely accused of being responsible for causing the death of the wife of man five years after he was laid off from a factory that was acquired by a firm created by Romney. What was never mentioned was that the wife had health insurance from her own employer the whole time.

When people are put in an early grave as a direct result of Obamacare, will he receive the credit he deserves for this?

You can be sure that Obama, and his followers will try to blame somebody else.

Essentially what Obama and his liberal crew are doing is sabotaging the health care insurance of a huge number of Americans in order to provide health care insurance to the small percentage of Americans who do not have health insurance. If Obama and his crew had wanted to, they could have provided subsidies to those Americans without health insurance so that they could have purchased their own health care insurance without messing with everybody else. The Obama crew would not do that because Obama Care is all about central government control of everyone´s health care in the future.

Do not be surprised if the Stupid Party does not suddenly come out of the shadows and go along with a new Obama bailout mend it don´t end it plan that will be very expensive as a "fix" to Obama Care, that will "sucker" the Stupid Party into half ownership of Obama Care, and give Obama and the Democrats in Congress a political escape hatch before the 2014 election.

Hate to tell everyone, but the worst part of 0care is yet to come. The stage 4 cancer patient????? Does she think if she finally does get a policy it is going to shell out 12 million for care. The little girl with the lung problem was just the tip of the iceberg. Sarah Palin was right, there are panels that will be deciding who does, and who doesn´t get care.
And it might very well hinge on WHO you donate to. Why do you think Dems have wanted control of the health care industry for 50 years? What better way to force $ and support...than to control your doc and healthcare.

#25.... Obamacare has nothing to do with insurance, health/medical care, or anything related to doctors and hospitals.

Never did.

Come out of your systems analyst mind, and see this for what it really is:

Control. They need us all under control. Under their control, that is. They need to have our medical information so that they can determine what decisions to make for us and our futures. And our children. And whether there ARE more children for anybody.

Their worldview is of Utopia. Where only they, the Elitists, the Best of the Best, live with all the benefits and luxuries their hearts of stone desire.

But they need worker bees. Healthy, young, stupid worker bees to provide those luxuries for THEM.

I thought this was obvious from the git-go. They are EUGENICISTS. They want to be able to thin our greedy herd. Preborn is already OK. Old and feeble will be next (and soon). Following that will be those young ones born that aren´t the Utopist´s version of perfect. Who needs them? Remember the leftists scolding Sarah Palin for actually giving birth to a Downs Syndrome baby? NOT ACCEPTABLE in their view.

Yes, the Crisis is on our side right now. But I fear the GOP (being Elitists themselves) will do nothing to seize the day and bring about the remedies we all see but can´t enact. They can.

But I don´t see many of them out there, front and center, seizing the day. They are quite happy, as always, sitting in the background and letting the Demosocialists control every narrative.

I hope I live long enough to see the Revolution that is coming. And I pray I´m healthy enough to participate in it. I have six grandchildren who don´t deserve the world they´re being set up for.

Our leaders, elected and civilian are afraid to speak out big time in this greatest, most recognizable moment of giant, massive, inarguable, clear cut, gangster fraud.
The one safe moment for fearful, soft on freedom, and silent people like "W" Bush and Mitt Romney, to speak the hell out and say finally, "It´s gotten so bad, I HAVE to come out and say something", The fear is they are ideological cowards; great backgrounds, no backbone.
If Reagan were alive today, he would come out of his public retirement knowing this is the time of all times !
Remember, this crisis is also the opportunity for commie Barry to do something even more evil and damaging.
Secretly plan another mass killing for Feinstein, secretly
Give citizenship to thirty million invading aliens, virtually
Organizing a new huge government controlled labor union, with payments and pension monopolies you won´t believe. McCain Rubio. Schumer. McConnel. Waxman. Boxer Barry. They´re all paid off to pass it.

Obama et al, like to say that the existing insurance plans that are being cancelled are ´bad´, but I don´t know of a single plan that required maternity care, drug rehab, pediatric dental care on EVERY policy. Had insurance companies had the audacity to try that, Obama et al would have shouted from the mountaintops that the insurance companies were ripping people off to line their own pockets and we would need government to control them. Now, Obama makes those requirements and it makes the plans ´better´. We are through the looking glass.

#27 has the same feelings and thoughts as I have. The only difference is that, given the fact that the dims are actually Communists and the pubies are not going to do much of anything to correct the problems, then what is needed is an armed revolt. Another revolution. If we, the people don´t do that, we are lost and over as a nation that was once. It´s gone past the point that politics is going to cure the patient. It´s going to take major surgery. So, gather what ever you can, pitch forks, sickles, shotguns, rifles, hand guns, anything you can use and join the revolution. And remember, over 40% of the people in this country still adore Obozo. I know it´s unbelievable, but it´s true. There are a very, very large group that just loves to live on the federal dole at someone else´s expense. I´m tire of it.

As to the pResident´s petulantly mendacious character and his use of blatant lies to mitigate bodacious lies, he has created a very rare occurrence in language, an absolute vacuum of adequate, definitive, wording, a vacuum which it seem I can only fill with an uncontrollable and energetic blurt of the N-word, a transgression for which I suffer an agonizing inability to adequately apologize to Thomas Sowell and Clarence Thomas. To my great sorrow, this truth is the only apology I have.

Nixon had to resign over that second rate burglary.

Clinton was impeached because he lied about Monica.

Given the few ordinary Americans that were actually harmed over these offenses, what would the appropriate punishment for a president who has literally destroyed the health insurance, financial stability and, ultimately, the lives of of tens of millions Americans?

Something to ponder.

Never, ever forget.

Most of these disasters would have been avoided had congress met its responsibilities.

In my years of watching politics, I have not seen a congress that cares less about "the people" than this one.

I personally hope none of the Senators who voted for ObamaCare survive the upcoming elections.

Add Richard Burr who voted to let the nomination of Mel Watt as head of FHMA go forward.

I have no respect for him.
I despise him.

He´s nothing more than an America-hating Kenyan muslim, hell-bent on destroying the country.

He must be removed from office. Now go do it Congress. We need a Five mission man march on DC to get the ball rolling.

You are witnessing the death of America.
If you´re not fighting against him, you´re an accomplice.

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.

Sheesh! Talk about a complete ingrate... Many people suspect that the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) instigated an over the top paramilitary confrontation with Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy at the behest of Senator Harry Reid especially since the new BLM director, Neil Kornze, was an aide to Reid. So how does Harry´s son, Rory Reid, thank the BLM rangers for putting their lives at risk over desert tortoises that are being euthanized by the Feds? Why, he slams them as "losers" on Las Vegas television station KSNV where Rory serves as a commentator from the left. You can see Reid in

After his Masters victory, pro golfer Bubba Watson celebrated with his family at a Waffle House. Pictures tweeted from there went viral. Waffle House appreciated the appreciation. What´s not to like about this great story? Apparently some self-appointed nanny state-loving guardians of nutrition like Katherine Tallmadge believe that Watson set a bad example for Americans by eating there. Oh, and with her powers of telepathy, she just knows that Watson´s a complete phony about what he really eats. She went after Watson on one of Neil Cavuto´s Fox programs yesterday, and in doing so caught talk show host Rush Limbaugh´s

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

CNN National Security Analyst:

Without mentioning reports that the man accused of shooting up a Jewish Community Center over the weekend was apparently a fan of the left´s Max Blumenthal, CNN National Security Analyst Peter Bergen exploited the murders to claim the American Right is more deadly than jihadists. In fact, since 9/11 extremists affiliated with a variety of far-right wing ideologies, including white supremacists, anti-abortion extremists and anti-government militants, have killed more people in the United States than have extremists motivated by al Qaeda´s ideology. According to a count by the New America Foundation, right wing extremists have killed 34 people in the

Jeff Sessions (R-AL), the ranking member of the Senate Budget Committee and arguably the leading intellectual force against amnesty in Congress, is coming out hard against a proposal backed by Majority Leader Eric Cantor to grant amnesty to illegal alien DREAMers who enlist in the military. “We are now in a period of very large troop reductions.

It’s not every day that Bill O’Reilly accuses someone else of expressing “right-wing paranoia,” but that’s what happened Tuesday night when he faced off with Fox News contributor Monica Crowley over a proposed solution to the controversy over voter ID laws. O’Reilly began his show by giving a soft endorsement to an idea put forward by former President Bill Clinton that would add photos to social security cards, which American citizens are already required to have in their possession. “I am all for combating voter fraud by using voter I.D.,” Crowley told O’Reilly. “My issue with the social security card in particular

Sylvia Mathews Burwell, President Obama’s nominee to lead the country’s health care overhaul, remains entangled in a lawsuit brought by shareholders of MetLife accusing her of misleading investors as a director of one of the country’s biggest insurance companies. The federal lawsuit, filed in New York, says the company used a Social Security death index to stop making payments when beneficiaries died, but the company wasn’t as diligent about using the database to track deaths of its policyholders, which triggers payouts, the lawsuit said. Last year, a judge refused to toss a federal lawsuit against the company, including claims against Ms. Burwell

GOP writes legislation to

A Republican congressman has introduced a bill that would stop government paychecks for officials who have been found in contempt of Congress — a move that seems designed in the short term to go after Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. Mr. Holder has refused to cooperate with the House GOP’s probe into the Fast & Furious gun-walking operation, and the House has voted to find him in contempt. Mr. Holder is challenging that vote in court. Rep. Blake Farenthold, a Texas Republican who publicly excoriated Mr. Holder at a hearing last week, introduced the legislation just before Congress went on vacation,

The White House on Tuesday downplayed the controversy over media access to President Obama, who will hold a moment of silence to mark the Boston Marathon bombing anniversary in the Oval Office without the press. The president and aides will observe the anniversary of the deadly attack behind closed doors at 2:29 p.m., exactly one year after two pressure cookers packed with shrapnel detonated near the finish line of the raise. “The president´s going to have a moment of silence in the Oval Office. There will be some senior advisers there,” said White House press secretary Jay Carney, adding that the tribute

PETA is urging first lady Michelle Obama to substitute fake eggs for the 19,000 real ones to be used in Monday´s Easter Egg Roll, claiming that egg production is cruel and eating them unhealthy and a violation of her “Let´s Move!” agenda. "For chickens on egg factory farms, Easter is not a time of renewal or joy. It can take up to 34 hours in typically hellish conditions for a hen to produce just one of the thousands of eggs slated to be used at the Easter Egg Roll. Furthermore, encouraging the consumption of cruelly sourced, unhealthy eggs is inconsistent

The husband of a Democratic lawmaker has pled guilty to Social Security fraud and other crimes. Henry A. Fellela Jr., the husband of Rhode Island Democratic state Rep. Deborah A. Fellela, pled guilty last week to illegally collecting more than $58,000 in Social Security benefits, according to local reports. Fellela pled guilty to five counts on charges of aggravated identity theft, credit card fraud, Social Security fraud and theft of government funds. This was not Fellela’s first brush with the law. In 1999, he first applied for Supplemental Social Security benefits — the benefits were ultimately terminated when he was

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

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

Funny question in the headline, yes? But since President Obama worries more about the threat of terrorists´ improvised nuclear device going off in a major American city than anything Russia can throw at us, I was wondering if the government had deigned to share with us citizens any tips for, you know, surviving something their own intelligence points to as the likeliest unlikely Black Swan event. Well, no. And yes. No — very few people in Washington, D.C., who work for the government have any idea what they would do if a 10-kiloton nuclear device exploded at the intersection of 16th and K

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast

A Russian fighter jet made multiple, close-range passes near an American warship in the Black Sea for more than 90 minutes Saturday amid escalating tensions in the region, a U.S. military official said Monday. In the first public account of the incident, the official said the Russian Fencer flew within 1,000 yards of the USS Donald Cook, a Navy destroyer, at about 500 feet above sea level. Ship commanders considered the actions provocative and inconsistent with international agreements, prompting the ship to issue several radio queries and warnings. The fighter appeared to be unarmed and never was in danger of
