The fix is in: Obama
comeback begins today

The Hill (Washington D.C.), by Brent Budowsky

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 11/15/2013 7:10:22 AM

My guess is that my column this week, suggesting President Obama can rise again, may come close to hitting the bottom of his recent slide in popularity. The president will fix the problem for those whose insurance policies were canceled. They may ultimately be big winners as insurers compete to offer them better policies, which will be clear when the website problem is fixed, which it ultimately will be. Meanwhile, Democrats turn up the heat of immigration, which will be a big winner for the president and Democrats, one way or the other. House and Senate Democrats have now pounced on

Sounds like the media is gearing up to create a narrative for an Obama comeback.Nobody knows whether this fix he did yesterday will even fly in the country.Doomsday for employer coverage is on it´s way.The Obamacare story is blocking the sun from probing a slew of other Obama failures.

My guess is they´re completely overhauling the website format which is throwing good money after bad but the government does that all the time.It´ll probably be next year before the new site is working with the cripple one up as a cover in the meantime.

On a day our President publicly orders insurance companies and state regulators to violate the law, announces he will not enforce the law and threatens to veto congressional efforts to improve the law, this writer pronounces the President is destined to see his popularity improve. "What we have here is a failure to communicate".

This isn´t the start of a comeback, this is a delay before the ´14 elections.

Everyone but you Budowsky knows it.

Wow. This guy doesn´t even recognize an abject failure when he sees one. The problem he has is that Americans have been personally affected by Obama´s policies. They are experiencing Obamacare. It is not something they read about but does not directly affect them. It is hitting them, where it hurts, in the wallet. If this guy believes that all will be forgiven because Obama is, well, Obama, he is delusional. Obama and the democrats have made a grave error. Reality ripped the mask off their little monster and it is now terrorizing the village. The torches and pitchforks are coming and no amount of spin is going to stop them.

The writer, Bent Bowdownsky, must have been asked to prove his loyalty to Obama by Valerie Jarrett during his WH job interview. "Ms Jarrett, I need to earn more than $25,000 per year at The Hill, so I´ll do anything to help Obama. Anything. Just tell me what you want me to write."

FTA "Democrats turn up the heat of immigration, which will be a big winner for the president and Democrats,"

Really? If this country is all for giving amnesty to 30-40 million illegals then it´s all over and what happens to obamacare doesn´t matter. Good grief the majority of Americans are against amnesty but if the msm says the opposite enough times then the lie becomes reality. The msm has fix in for obamacare and amnesty! How I loath the msm!!!

Of course the fix is in. The fix has been in for years. The MSM has supported Obama from day one and will continue to do so.

The good news is the "fix" will not work. The people are seeing just how inept this president can be.

Unless the Republicans come to Obama´s aid and do something even more stupid (i.e. vote for immigration reform) the coming midterm elections should see an overwhelming vote for conservatism and the repeal of ObamaCare.

This article is part of a disinformation campaign. Disinformation campaigns are based on lies or the planting of seeds of philosophy to be cultivated into common beliefs.

Democrats are masters of the disinformation campaign. Republicans should learn how to play the game.

Obama will have to resign and very soon. The MSM is going to demand it.

Budowsky, you´re lost in space if you think anybody, much less Obama, is gonna fix this turkey of a law. It´s not fixable if you want it to work somewhere close to the way things have always worked, with maybe a glitch now and then but largely cruising along with satisfied customers.

ObamaCare would "work" the way socialized medicine "works" everywhere - for bandaids, first aid, minor stuff. It will always and unfailingly cost much MUCH more than prophesied while always and unfailingly delivering much MUCH less than predicted. It´s a gigantic scam to hide corruption and political favoritism.

Nobody wants to spend three times as much for half as much, and that half undependable.

Climate Forecast: Muting the Alarm

The United Nations´ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change will shortly publish the second part of its latest report, on the likely impact of climate change. Government representatives are meeting with scientists in Japan to sex up—sorry, rewrite—a summary of the scientists´ accounts of storms, droughts and diseases to come. But the actual report, known as AR5-WGII, is less frightening than its predecessor seven years ago. The 2007 report was riddled with errors about Himalayan glaciers, the Amazon rain forest, African agriculture, water shortages and other matters, all of which erred in the direction of alarm. This led to a critical appraisal

You may have noticed that our friends on the left have begun to refer to the Koch brothers and other rich conservatives as "oligarchs." Like calling evangelicals "jihadists" and the tea party "racist," this comparison to the billionaires in Vladimir Putin´s circle is meant to stigmatize and marginalize these men politically and socially. This latest Saul Alinsky tactic got us thinking about who really qualifies as an American oligarch. If the definition is someone who becomes rich by association with government power and policies, and then assists those in power, the Kochs would barely make the list. Their companies are usually

BEIJING - A Malaysian team have told relatives of Chinese passengers on board the missing Malaysia Airlines (MAS) flight MH370 that there was sealed evidence that cannot be made public, as they came under fire from the angry relatives at a briefing on Wednesday. The sealed evidence included air traffic control radio transcript, radar data and airport security recordings. The briefing at the Metropark Lido Hotel in Beijing focused on UK satellite analysis which led Malaysia to conclude that flight MH370 ended in south Indian Ocean, off Perth. The Chinese relatives were told that a five-member high-level team from Malaysia plans to brief

Sen.

Bevin is debuting a new ad during Friday’s Kentucky versus Louisville basketball game that features a cutout of the Senate minority leader bedecked in a blue Duke jersey. It’s a reference to a McConnell campaign video launched earlier this week that mistakenly featured a shot of Duke’s 2010 championship team celebrating their win — a grave error in the Bluegrass State, where Duke has a longstanding rivalry with the University of

The California Department of Motor Vehicles is setting up new facilities to process driver’s license applications for illegal immigrants alone. Last year, Gov. Jerry Brown signed into law a bill, AB 60, which will allow illegal immigrants to obtain the documents beginning Jan. 1, 2015. The bill was signed along with a number of others laws seen as favorable to undocumented immigrants. As part of the driver’s license application process, immigrants will have to acknowledge that they are undocumented. But AB 60 protects applicants from criminal prosecution. The measure will provide an avenue for the state’s three to four million undocumented immigrants to obtain

Former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld has said that ´a trained ape´ could do a better job managing American interests in Afghanistan than President Obama. The retired Republican made the insult while doing a phone-in interview for Greta Van Susteren´s Fox News show on Tuesday. He argued that the President made a serious error by failing to negotiate a status forces agreement with Afghan President Hamid Karzai.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D., Nev.) said the fault of struggling to sign up on the Obamacare exchanges didn’t lie with the faulty website, but with the people who weren’t “educated on how to use the Internet.” Explaining the reasoning behind the latest Obamacare delay, Reid said too many people just didn’t know to use their computer properly and needed more time. Apparently, it had nothing to do with the well-documented failings of the website that have embarrassed the White House for months. “We have hundreds of thousands of people who tried to sign up who didn’t get through,” he said.

It never came. Instead, the Leader of the Free World was met with one slow, awkward clap. Question: was MSNBC’s Chris Matthews in the house?

"There is a huge turnout disadvantage and challenge," Democratic pollster Celinda Lake said Tuesday at a breakfast with reporters.

Nearly six in 10 people disapprove of President Obama´s job performance in a new poll by the Associated Press, the highest rating recorded by the newswire. According to the AP-GFK survey released Wednesday, 59 percent disapprove of Obama´s job performance while 41 percent approve. A similar poll released by the news outlet in January found 45 percent approved of him while 53 percent disapproved. Other recent polling has found Obama´s disapproval rating slightly lower, remaining in the low 50s. A CBS News poll Tuesday showed 50 percent disapproval, while Gallup has his disapproval at 52 percent. In the AP poll,

As the U.S. Supreme Court weighed the constitutionality of a contraception coverage mandate Tuesday morning, a federal appeals court heard a separate legal challenge that could have much more sweeping implications for the future of President Obama´s health care law. And if the oral arguments before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C.

At issue in the case are the subsidies that the federal government provides for individuals purchasing insurance through Obamacare. Though the text
