Obama Administration Fixes

Barack apologized to the American people in a left handed way by saying that he was sorry that so many Americans were so stupid as to buy healthcare plans that they really never wanted. ObamaCare will still fix all of that. No delay -- some sort of obscure fix is in the works. WHY DID THEY DAMAGE 20% OF THE ECONOMY IN THE FIRST PLACE?

  • No apology for throwing 120 million Americans off the health insurance that they wanted and replacing it with something that cost 300% more with vastly higher deductibles.
  • No apology for throwing COUNTLESS millions of Americans out of full time jobs into 29 hour a week employment.
  • No discussion of "saving 10 million" uninsured at the expense of 120 million Americans (1/3 of the nation?
What happened to the probe into gross Internal Revenue Service misconduct where they targeted political opponents to the Obama Administration? Has the executive branch of government fixed that? If so, details have not been forthcoming. Nobody has been held accountable by the Obama Administration.

Over a year later, we still are not certain what happened at the Benghazi Massacre because the federal government won't allow the survivors to be interviewed by Congress. Obama promised a fix. We're still waiting and so are the families of those murdered. Nobody expects Barack to turn on Hillary (the Bitch of Benghazi) Clinton so there will be no reckoning there.

Yes, today there are a few sacrificial goats in the Federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms who have been allowed to retire after the Operation Fast and Furious Scandal --- three years ago. If that is what passes for a reckoning inside of the Beltway, maybe somebody is happy. The families of dead Mexicans and US Border Patrol and ICE agents are unlikely satisfied with that outcome.


Fishwrap

The Obama White House Clarifies its Position

Health Insurance has become Healthcare, and thus a national right. Tax the rich, feed the poor until there are no more rich people (except for the nomenklatura - the privileged political class who are exempted from taxes and government imposed hardship). Socialism's finest hour in America.
Do you remember when Obama unveiled his healthcare "reform" scheme? That was way back on Sept. 9, 2009, in a speech to a joint session of Congress. 
Ironically, the president that night warned opponents against saying that his plan to ultimately centralize American healthcare in the federal government would do things that it wouldn't do. "If you misrepresent what's in this plan," Obama threatened, "we will call you out."
People are calling Barack a LIAR and he doesn't seem to be liking it much.

I'm Ready for Hillary 2016

Hillary Clinton, the Bitch of Benghazi
Hillary Clinton has been a national figure since 1992, and based on current reports, she's having some difficulty crafting herself as a "fresh face" and full of "new ideas" in Washington.

Hillary had two brief chats with Goldman Sachs executives and walked away with a reported $400,000 in fees. Such compensation is almost as profitable as Hillary’s long-ago cattle-future trading, in which as a talented rookie speculator she beat one-in-several-million odds by parlaying a $1,000 investment into a $100,000 profit.

I doubt that she's talking to her adoring supporters about her triumphant foreign policy wins while working for the Obama White House or touting ObamaCare. Maybe she's recounting all the work she did for the nation while First Lady?

Six is Enough

A single presidential tenure might curtail an incumbent's customary exaggerations about supposed past achievements and the phony promises about great things to come that are both apparently necessary for re-election. Much of wasteful federal spending and general bad policy derives from the re-election efforts of an incumbent desperate to appease or buy off the electorate.

I think that it's time to push for a six year term for president with no hope of re-election. The back to back four year term thing isn't working. During Bill Clinton's last term he was nearly impeached, George Bush's last term wasn't sterling and Barack Obama's second term is worse than the first was (as if anyone thought that would be possible).

Employment Numbers

(NBC) 932,000 Americans Drop Out Of Labor Force In October; Participation Rate Drops To Fresh 35 Year Low. That doesn't include all of the full time jobs that have been turned into part time jobs due to ObamaCare. The US Department of Labor doesn't track (or at least publish) the number of people whose full time employment has been transformed into part time employment.

The benefits of being an SEIU thug

You'll recall that the Obama Administration bussed SEIU thugs to counter-demonstrate against the Tea Party.
The Service Employees Benefit Fund, which insures a total of 12,000 SEIU health care workers in upstate New York, secured its Obamacare exemption in October. The Local 25 SEIU Welfare Fund in Chicago also nabbed a waiver for 31,000 of its enrollees.
