Barney Frank on Obamacare rollout:
‘They just lied to people’

Washington Times, by Kellan Howell

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 8/2/2014 5:18:40 PM

Former Massachusetts Rep. Barney Frank questioned President Obama’s honesty regarding the rollout of Obamacare in a recent interview. He told The Huffington Post on Friday that he was shocked at the mishandling of the new health care law. “The rollout was so bad, and I was appalled—I don’t understand how the president could have sat there and not been checking on that on a weekly basis,” the former Democratic congressman told the website. “But frankly, he should never have said as much as he did, that if you like your current health care plan, you can keep it. That wasn’t true. And you shouldn’t lie to people. And they just lied to people,”

Comments:
Is Barney having a deathbed confession?

Just libtards doing what libtards do - ´distancing´ themselves from a libtard loser. Remind ev everyone that libtards lie all the time, and old Barney was lying through his teeth in the interview. How do I know? Because he´s a politician and a libtard.

Democrats have not yet earned the right to lament the intentional tragedy of Dear Leader which they have forced upon the world, twice. They knew full well he was not fit to be president, that being the main reason they wanted him in the Oval Office. Too bad, Barney - Dear Leader is still just a reflection of your intentionally bad judgment. Renounce your sick, stupid party, then we´ll start listening to you.

Obama didn´t do this alone. You and your colleagues were right there cheering him on. Any thinking person knew Obamacare was a scam because numbers don´t lie and it just did not add up. This whole ideologically driven administration is a disaster. Everything they touch is a failure. Buck up, Barney. It is going to get even worse. The administrative failure will be drawfed by the failure of the quality of care given to patients. It will be the VA on steroids. Is Obama great, or what?

Reading between the lines of Barney´s remarks, I hear that Obama should have kept the disastrous effects of O´Care secret. He should have said nothing.

Barney hasn´t changed his mind about O´Care. He just would have gone about it differently. He´s still one nasty, creepy guy, just like the sequin-studded Starina in the White House.

Yep. The Birdcage (Mike Nichols´ and Elaine May´s 1996 remake of La Cage aux folles, transplanted to Miami with Robin Williams as Armand and Nathan Lane as Albert/Starina), has been all over the cable channels these last couple of weeks.

To paraphrase Rudyard Kipling, Barack and Barney are brothers under the skin. If the regiment of rump rangers has an oath of loyalty, Bwarney just stepped on it.

Someone in the White House Press Corps(es) needs to ask Josh if Valerie has yet programmed TOTUS with a rebuttal concerning this development.

Barack´s world is spinning ever faster out of control -- as it always does for these kind of people. Look for the fun´ raising to become even more frenetic and the daily divots to increase.

Barney was in Congress until January 2011. The question for Barney is "what did he know and when did he know it."

I was just looking at the Timeline at the History of Obamacare (http://www.nrcc.org/default/sites/landingpages/timeline/index.html):

June 15, 2009

President Obama Promises "You Can Keep Your Doctor"

In the push for Obamacare, President Obama repeatedly promised that "if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor" as he did in a speech to the American Medical Association. However, a Congressional Budget Office report found that 20 million workers could lose their employer-sponsored insurance as a result of the law.

#31 that is exactly what jumped out at me in this article. The sheer arrogance of these Congressional half-wits who can´t run their own lives but want to run ours is breathtaking. And the fact that Barney Frank thinks it would be a great idea to choose our healthcare plans for us not to mention his assumption that we would all welcome it is extremely indicative of how liberals think.

Liberals tend to devote a significant portion of their daily lives to proving how not racist they are. One particularly expedient way of doing this is to declare that something a conservative has said or done is totally racist, and then to place oneself in opposition to the thing that was racist: “See, I’m not a racist!” As result, the List of Things That Are Racist has grown incomprehensibly long. The Free Beacon‘s devotion to public service obligates us to provide this list (not exhaustive by any means) of what liberals do and do not consider to be racist. Things That Are Racist: 1. Talking about Ebola (Salon) - 2. Describing the Hong Kong

Turkey approves military operations
against ´IS´ in Syria and Iraq
Deutsche Welle [Germany], by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 10/2/2014 2:03:21 PM     Post Reply
Turkey´s parliament voted 298-98 on Thursday in favor of launching military operations across the border in Syria and Iraq, in a bid to combat the self-proclaimed "Islamic State" (IS). Despite opposition from two parties, many had viewed passage of the motion as a foregone conclusion. The legislation comes as IS attacks have caused thousands to flee the Syrian town officially known as Ayn al-Arab, but called Kobani by its Kurdish majority population, across the border from Turkey, despite airstrikes by the US-led coalition on the group´s positions in Syria since last week and in Iraq since early August.

Chris Matthews vs. Ezekiel Emanuel on
Ebola: "Obama Said It Was Unlikely.

On MSNBC´s Hardball tonight, host Chris Matthews argued with Obamacare architect Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel about President Obama saying it was "unlikely" that an Ebola case would strike the U.S. "Obama said it was unlikely. It has happened. It´s here," Matthews said. Dr. Emanuel said there is some "fear mongering" going on here, but Matthews said he was just quoting the president and stating facts. Here´s a bit of the argument that lasted nearly ten minutes: Chris Matthews : I´m just trying to follow the logic here. Everybody´s being told, don´t worry unless they have the infectious symptoms, you can see them,

Eric Holder’s exit leaves a

Who’ll be the next attorney general? Washington’s favorite parlor game is filling Cabinet vacancies; I like playing as much as the next pundit. (Keep reading!) Still, the more telling question is: Why are we playing this game at all? Why wasn’t the White House, which knew for months that Eric H. Holder Jr. was itching to leave, ready to roll with a successor? More important, given Holder’s foot inching toward the door, why did it not time this departure more intelligently — rather than having it arrive just before an election and the prospect of Democrats losing control of the Senate?

Oregon pols battle over when to

Cover Oregon was supposed to be a shining example of ObamaCare at its best. The state insurance exchange for the state of Oregon received $300 million in federal grants to launch a state-of-the-art website. But it never worked, and not a single Oregonian was able to sign up for health care from start to finish. So now, Oregon is in the process of pulling the plug on the site and switching over to the federal exchange and HealthCare.gov -- but the question is, how quickly they can do it. “We need to move forward and do the best thing for the people of Oregon,” Republican State Sen. Tim Knopp said, “and I think that’s ending Cover Oregon as

From the crisis in Ferguson, Mo., to the cultural impact of Robin Williams´ and Joan Rivers´ sudden deaths and all the way up to recent round-the-clock coverage of U.S. strikes on ISIS, cable news has been heavily occupied. The last three months have been so big, Fox News Channel just clocked its first quarter with the most-watched primetime across all of cable in more than a decade — even besting USA and ESPN. The average 1.79 million viewers between 8 p.m. and 11 p.m., Monday through Friday, gave FNC its first quarter atop the dial since the Iraq War broke out in 2003. Expanding that block by an hour,

A man with a gun that the Secret Service did not know about rode in an elevator with President Obama during his visit to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta on Sept. 16. The previously undisclosed breach, confirmed by two sources familiar with the case, raises new questions about the agency´s ability to protect the president. The incident, which took place three days before an intruder jumped a fence and sprinted inside the White House, involved a failure in Secret Service advance work to prevent an armed man from coming into close proximity with Obama while he was visiting the CDC to receive a

Washington - The Obama Administration announced Tuesday that it will pick up the bill for immigration attorneys who will be assigned to unaccompanied children from Central America and elsewhere who are stopped at the U.s. border. Dallas and Houston are two of a handful of cities where the money will be spent, a spokesman for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services said in a phone call to The News Tuesday. The program starts today and will be funded with $9 million between now and the end of the next fiscal year. In all, the funds are estimated to be enough to pay for lawyers for more than 2,600 children.

In her just-released memoir, 27 year-old "Girls" star Lena Dunham claims that as a 19 year-old Oberlin College student in Ohio, she was raped by a college Republican. In the first chapter that addresses the encounter, Dunham describes the "ill-fated evening of lovemaking" as awkward and hollow. The most sensational moment comes from the fact that "Barry" wasn´t wearing a condom. In the next chapter, Dunham backtracks with the claim that she´s an "unreliable narrator" and accuses "Barry" of rape: [I]n another essay in this book I describe a sexual encounter with a mustachioed campus Republican as the upsetting but

A recently retired Secret Service agent told MailOnline on Thursday that former director Julia Pierson´s resignation will be welcomed by the agency´s rank-and-file because ´people in the service thought she was a joke from Day One.´ He attributed her swift fall from grace to a cadre of ´p***ed off agents who had had enough´ of feeling disrespected by the service´s first female director. ´Putting her in charge was part of the [Obama] administration´s push to feminize the service after the "hookergate" nightmare,´ the agent said, referring to agents who were fired after patronizing prostitutes during a security-check trip to Colombia

The quintessential question of Watergate was “what did the President know and when did he know it?” Obamagate, the vast scandal that encompasses an entire presidency, offers a preemptive answer. Obama didn’t know anything and he never knew it. At least not until, like smuggling weapons to druglords, bugging journalists, IRSing his political enemies and killing vets, his right hand found out about what his left hand was doing from the morning paper. After skipping 58% of his daily intelligence briefings in Term 1 and 59% of them in Term 2, he went on 60 Minutes and blamed intelligence agencies for being

Deadly, irrational, and determined, the intruder snuck across a weakened perimeter. Eluding capture, the intruder was detained only after missteps and close calls. The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events. A mental case jumps the White House fence. He makes it to the East Room before he’s tackled by an off-duty Secret Service agent. Initial statements turn out to be misleading or false. We discover that lapses in

President Obama was at Northwestern University on Thursday to deliver an economic speech that, he and his team hoped, would lay out the case for why the public is better off today than they were six years ago -- even if they didn´t feel it in their everday lives. Instead, Obama just gave every Republican ad-maker in the country more fodder for negative ads linking Democratic candidates to him. Here are the four sentences that will draw all of the attention (they come more than two thirds of the way through the speech): "I am not on the ballot this

A recent fight between Rosie O´Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg has producers at The View looking to add a cool-down room for the ladies. After being cut off by Goldberg during an episode last week so the show could go to commercial, O´Donnell began to express how upset she was and, after being told repeatedly by Goldberg it was not the right time to have that discussion, eventually got cursed out by the Oscar winner. Goldberg told O´Donnell, ´F*** it, I told you to leave it alone and you just don´t want to listen. If you want to go there Rosie,

A presidential defeat isn’t an easy thing to bounce back from. And Mitt Romney did it twice. So it was understandable that after he lost the presidential race in 2012, he was adamant about closing the door to the possibility of a third campaign. But recently, speculation is whirling that Romney may not be so adamant anymore. When asked if he was running in a New York Times interview published earlier this week, Romney said : “I have nothing to add to the story. We’ve got a lot of people looking at the race,” he said. “We’ll see what happens.” That response, which

Meghan McCain joined the dog pile on the Secret Service this week, saying she’s had “nothing but horrible experiences" with the agency and likening the agents to “glorified mall cops.” The 29-year-old author and television personality, who is also the daughter of former GOP presidential candidate Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), opened up on Pivot’s “TakePart Live” about some of her interactions with the Secret Service. "I have nothing but horrible experiences with the Secret Service,” McCain said. “One of my friends called them glorified mall cops and I don´t think that´s terribly far off. I found them cliquey.

WASHINGTON — Representative Elijah E. Cummings of Maryland was at the grocery store the other day when he ran into an elderly black woman who expressed growing concern about President Obama’s safety. Why, she asked, wasn’t he being better protected by his Secret Service agents? The furor that led to this week’s resignation of the director of the Secret Service resonated deeply among blacks, outraged that those supposed to be guarding the first black president were somehow falling down on the job — and suspicious even without evidence that it may be deliberate. “It is something that is widespread in

Go to a grocery store in California and buy all the milk, eggs and vegetables you want. But there’s one thing you won’t find at the checkout line, beginning July 1, 2015: Plastic bags to carry your stuff home. Gov. Jerry Brown (D) on Tuesday signed into law a ban on single-use plastic bags, making California the first state to prohibit stores from using the ubiquitous carry-alls. Shoppers will be charged 10 cents for every paper bag and heavy-duty plastic bag they use. “This bill is a step in the right direction,” Brown said in a press release announcing his approval. “It

The hawkish Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina says he is thinking about running for president in 2016. In an interview with Stephen Hayes of the Weekly Standard, the senator, running for re-election to the Senate this year, said: “If I get through my general election, if nobody steps up in the presidential mix, if nobody’s out there talking — me and McCain have been talking — I may just jump in to get to make these arguments,” Graham said. Graham, 59, also dismissed Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, 43, as a presidential candidate, saying he is too young. “He’s a good
