Obamacare is Obama´s
Failure by choice, not fate

Washington Examiner [DC], by Noemie Emery

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 12/11/2013 5:21:29 AM

No, Obamacare isn’t Katrina for Democrats. Katrina was an act of God and/or nature, a phenomenon beyond the control of mere human beings, a catastrophe not of choice, but of nature’s necessity, outside the realm of man’s will. George W. Bush didn’t cause it to happen, nothing he did could have made it not happen, and he surely did not make it worse. The federal response wasn’t inspired, but the reason this mattered was that the mayor of New Orleans and the governor of Louisiana were not only perhaps the two stupidest people ever to hold public office, but the stupidest people

People don´t realize how hard it is to moilize a government bureaucracy.There´s all kinds of government entities to get moving in a catastrophe the size of Katrina. Bush went to bed that night thinking the storm had blown over and he was in the clear. It wasn´t until the levees broke down tat it got serious.How is the world do people think you can snap your fingers and coordinate everybody involved in response.Bush actually did a hell of a job getting resources in there.

The left blew it out of proportion because it was a gift wrapped race card to play.You´ll never hear that it was white dems who didn´t want a flood of black refugees in their areas.People didn´t wind up in Houston because they liked the scenery.

On the other hand we have Obama who now personally disowns Obamacare because it backfired.The media has been ordered to ban the term Obamacare because it´s reputation irks so many people.Calling it affordable sounds like something the Onion would call it.

#1, absolutely correct. The National Guard, for instance, is completely self-supporting, so everything needed for a mission is gathered up prior to the Guard´s being able to move out. It´s not done in hours.

A very good read, and obama certainly owns 100% of the colossal failure of obamaCare.

The comments about the bad rap Bush 43 got over a hurricaine is spot on. But I also think that war on terrorists in Iraq has offered lasting benefits not accredited to Bush 43. Several thousand Al-Qaeda militants were wiped in single battles (Fallujah). Called "fumigating" operations, with lasting benefits. Seen any 747s fly into skyscrapers lately??

G.W.Bush = 10
obama = 0

Miss Colonel and I were headed South on I65 from Montgomery, AL to Mobile, AL on the Sunday prior to Katrina hitting the Gulf Coast. She hit on Monday in Hattiesburg, MS...Cat 3! Our power went off about 1030 hours on Monday. Now, lets back up to her and I driving South on I65...we were listening to PBS as they were giving all the news updates on Katrina. President George W. Bush declared the Gulf Coast, including New Orleans, a Federal Disaster Area on Sunday afternoon giving the State Governments of Louisiana and Mississippi and Alabama advanced time to begin their measures. To blame George W. Bush and the Federal Government for the failings of the "leadership" at the State and local level in Louisiana is wrong and in my humble opinion, criminal to boot!

FTA: “ Iraq was an off-shoot of the reaction to September 11th, seen at the time as a war of necessity, and born of the idea that a sequel to an unprovoked attack such as this could be only forestalled by an act of preemption against a regime known already to be deeply hostile and believed for good reason to possess weapons of terrible force.”

Actually, that wasn’t the reason for the Iraq war. The 9/11 attack showed us our terrible vulnerabilities and gave the Bush administration the job of deciding how to protect us from those vulnerabilities in the future. They believed that the hatred of the U.S. by the Middle Eastern people stemmed from their lack of freedom – that the craving for freedom is shared by all peoples and the frustration and pain caused by the lack of freedom causes horrible envy and hatred. They also believed that freedom planted in Iraq would spread throughout the Middle East by way of the “Arab Spring.”

Bush and his people succeeded in freeing Iraq, in planting the seed of freedom in the Middle East, and it sparking the “Arab Spring.” Obama and his crew have either deliberately or though incompetence mismanaged that flowering to the point that it may never bear fruit. But Bush was right to try.

Consider this - zippy spent $678,000,000 on the shoddy website alone. Not even taking into account the millions it´s taking to fix that mess, instead zippy could have given every single American citizen $2 million and still have money left over. Think about how much health care $2 million could buy. Think about what could happen if you took that money and invested it.

I´m going to point this out to every lib I know, especially the 20 something skulls full of mush who voted for him twice and are now expected to fund his signature law but don´t have jobs due to his socialist policies. And point it out to their parents - got a spouse and two kids? That´s $8 million zippy could have given you, but instead, you are going to pay through the nose to fund the gimmedats who sit on their arses all day watching basketball on the flat screen. Hope and change!

Note Obama´s excuses for poor Obamacare IT implementation during his Chris Mathews interview. He blamed outdated Federal agencies. I think what he was trying to say, but got it garbled, was that the computer systems at IRS and Social Security are "outdated" and are difficult to query from the new OCare system in real time - to determine the user/citizen´s income and subsidy eligibility.

#7, the state had ordered evacuation well ahead of the storm. Maybe what you are remembering is the contretemps between Democrat Governor Blanco and President Bush over who could call out the Louisiana National Guard. He had the authority in that circumstance, but she refused, so the Guard troops came in from Arkansas and Texas.

I thought it was violations of the truce agreement subsequent to the invasion of Kuwait which resulted in our invasion of Iraq.

All the peace-niks on the left were in favor of the war when they felt scared for their own safety post 9-11. But as soon as the fear passed they returned to their obnoxious moral superiority.

All of the video showing leftist leaders calling for the invasion seem to count for nothing.

#9 Please don´t use that as an argument before checking the math! It´s only $2 a person, NOT $2 million a person. I can´t understand why that keeps popping up.

Of course, an argument could be made that OVaporCare won´t turn out to be worth even $2 a person - but that´s a different argument.

#9: "...zippy could have given every single American citizen $2 million and still have money left over."

Apparently nobody bothered to correct the math the last few times comments like that were posted.

If the federal government can pay $2 million to each citizen out of tax funds (where else?!!), then it must first have taxed the average American at least $2 million. Assuming GDP per capita of $50,000, the average citizen would have at least $2 million per year paid in federal taxes on $50,000 of his individual share of GDP.

Please check your math.

Poster 9 is on the right track. But the money spent was only for the shopping part of the web site. I think we will later find out that with a month to go, someone realized just how awful the sticker shock was. They them tried to limit your ability to see the cost until you had signed up. And the shopping features got turned off. And still they haven´t built the buying of the site.

Seems plausible to me that the abject failure of the Obamacare launch is a key part of the plan.

Zippy has long dreamed of getting the U.S. onto a single-payer system like Britain´s, but admitted (while still an Illinois Senator) that there was no direct path to that goal from where we were. Coaxing the system to drop the coverage from most Americans and then leaving them uncovered during months of flailing with the signup process will leave the country screaming for government to step in and provide coverage for all.

Thus a move that should historically stand as a monument to the danger of totalitarian government will be treated as an example of big government coming to the people´s rescue.

I believe, in tennis parlance, Obama created an unforced error, i.e., he stepped in his own poo.

Dems are generally good at this but Obama excels at it and will someday get an award from some Libtard saying, in effect, "Stupid is as stupid does".

Bush wanted to evacuate New Orleans but like the article states he was road blocked by the mayor and La. governor. Both liberal democrat Bush haters but the real hater behind the scenes was Raymond Blanco the husband of the slow minded governor. He absolutely hated Bush. Ray Blanco´s wife Katheline is a dummy and followed her husbands wishes.
New Orleans couldn´t have been saved but the people could have. Bush didn´t visit because the only usable air strip was being used for relief supplies and he would have blocked that because of security around him.
The media did their job on Bush but he was a smarter and better President than Obama. Just think of unemployment as one example.
The low IQ, block headed Obama owns Obamacare and his cabal of communist who passed it own it too.

I wish that someone would point out that those levees surrounding N.O. were going to fail, Katrina or not. Katrina just accelerated the time frame for it to happen. The particular levee that broke and flooded the 9th ward had been leaking for a long time before Katrina. And, supposedly, the Corps of Engineers had give the city the money to repair them, but Nagin and his cohorts decided to spend the money on "other more important jobs". And Bush gets the blame? And Nagin didn´t evacuate N.O. using the school busses that were available (until they were under water) because he wanted the Feds to provide Greyhound type busses. Katrina was just another excuse for the drive-by media and the dims to hound Bush to death. And today, far too many people believe what was said about the whole episode.

And I had just about forgot about Iraq.

GWB wanted to send in the Guard, but by law the Governor must first request it, and she wouldn´t do so. The Democrat Governor was reluctant to give a Republican president the credit for coming to the State´s aid. Petty politics over-ruled good governance.

It’s no secret that Senate Majority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.) and Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) don’t like one another. They battle regularly over legislation and their Senate floor fights over arcane-but-important rules have become must-see entertainment for senatorial insiders. According to aides in both parties, the two leaders have not had a one-on-one sitdown to discuss legislation (or anything else) since late last year. Nowadays, all business is conducted on the phone or in brief discussions on the Senate floor. Part of that feud is political – Democrats targeted McConnell in 2008, Republicans targeted Reid in 2010, Democrats

Jews have reportedly been told to ´register´ with pro-Russian forces in the east Ukrainian city of Donetsk. They were also told they would need to provide a list of property they own as well as being ordered to pay a fee or face the threat of deportation. U.S. officials in Washington say leaflets bearing the chilling order have recently appeared in the city amid pro and anti-Russian protests as tensions rise in the area. It comes after Jews leaving a synagogue in the city of Donetsk were reportedly told they had to ´register´ with Ukranians trying to make the city part of Russia.United

It was a powerful indictment and perhaps one worth building on. Mr. Stephens highlighted what he believes would be some of the obstacles facing Senator Paul, beginning with his long political association with Jack Hunter, alias the “Southern Avenger,” who among other things wrote an April 13, 2004 column titled “John Wilkes Booth Was Right.” The “Southern Avenger” said this: Although Lincoln’s assassin, John Wilkes Booth’s heart was in the right place, the Southern Avenger

Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers.
