Chalk up another disaster for Obama

  • Follow Letters

President Obama rolled out his health care website a few weeks ago, and it was a crashing success! This kind of failure could be engineered only by the Obama administration, the Internal Revenue Service, more than $600 million dollars and a foreign company all putting their best efforts forward. Perhaps Obama outsourced the building of this website to a Canadian company so he could prove he could outsource better than Mitt Romney.

As usual, once things started going wrong, the Obama administration followed their first inclination and, in my opinion, lied. The crash was blamed on high traffic to the website. I am surprised it wasn’t blamed on a video created by the Tea Party. Weeks later, the truth is coming out that it is simply a bad product. So now Obama is asking Americans to help.

Then of course, to make a bad situation worse, there was a Rose Garden ceremony last week. Shades of Libya and 9-11. There were 13 supposedly successful users of the website who stood behind Obama. The only problem is that only three of them had actually been able to successfully purchase insurance on the website. I am sure CNN’s Candy Crowley will step up to falsely assure us that more people present did enroll.

Obama – having fouled up Mideast foreign policy, having been rolled by Russian President Vladimir Putin and having created a complete mess of the health care rollout – is now setting his aim on immigration reform. I’m sure those in this country illegally are desperately praying that the road to amnesty doesn’t involve going through an Obama-created website!

This whole situation shows the lack of executive and business

experience of Obama and those around him, to include the hapless Sebilus.

A person with leadership and executive experience would have had milestones, timelines, trial runs, critique sessions etc all with the top leaders such as the president and Sec of HHS involved. Of course, "no drama Obama" was missing on these times as he was when Ben Ghanzi was under attack. The man is incompetent surrounded by incompetency.

Of course, as I used to say about the Army phone books, "Whoever wrote and designed these things had to be brilliant because no one can screw up something this bad without knowing exactly what they are doing."

It my hope that every American that voted for this fool in office suffers the most under his Administration. The only way a bull will stay in it's enclosure is when it attempts to break out and touches that hot fence. Same with these low information voters. Until it comes back to bite them on the butt, they keep on taking from others by electing democrats.

if Jimmy Carter had been born with brown skin

in a broken home
and grew up on the mean streets of Indonesia
and indoctrinated in marxism at a young age
he may not have been such a good President either
he may have started an education department
dedicated to the proposition
that black children cannot learn
and favored burearocrats over doctors
and increased the ratio of patients to doctors
and passed a law that interfered with bankers and borrowers
with here a wink there a nod
the government will take care of your bad loans
and caused the biggest economic catastrophe in generations
democrats, oh my

Ymbode, The country had very high inflation under Jimmy Carter, disaster in a hostage rescue, very very high interest rates, and a President who was too religious for the job. He was also a disaster.

Cost of Duh-byah's Incompetence
Unpublished

Let's see, Duh-Byah cost us:
Trillions in an illegal Iraq War
Hundreds of thousands of innocent deaths in an illegal Iraq War
Trillions in a savaged economy from the Near-Depression

Obama, Kenyan Muslim Socialist, seems like a bargain (although, them dead furriners probably don't matter to a True American). We, the groundlings, might even see some improvement in our lives as a result of his misgovernment, as we're sure not going to enjoy the benefits the Rich.

And, we're finally back to where we were before Duh-Byah fumbled the ball on his last possession (although, Duh-Byah was only ever a cheerleader, in real life, and he'll never be down to his last possession, or last meal, or last taxpayer-funded medical procedure).

Written by Dr. Jack Wheeler

The O-man, Barack Hussein Obama, is an eloquently tailored empty suit. No resume, no accomplishments, no experience, no original ideas, no understanding of how the economy works, no understanding of how the world works, [filtered word], nothing but abstract, empty rhetoric devoid of real substance.

He has no real identity. He is half-white, which he rejects. The rest of him is mostly Arab, which he hides but is disclosed by his non-African Arabic surname and his Arabic first and middle names as a way to triply proclaim his Arabic parentage to people in Kenya . Only a small part of him is African Black from his Luo grandmother, which he pretends he is exclusively.

What he isn't, not a genetic drop of, is 'African-American,' the descendant of enslaved Africans brought to America chained in slave ships. He hasn't a single ancestor who was a slave. Instead, his Arab ancestors were slave owners. Slave-trading was the main Arab business in East Africa for centuries until the British ended it.

Let that sink in: Obama is not the descendant of slaves, he is the descendant of slave owners. Thus he makes the perfect Liberal Messiah.

It's something Hillary doesn't understand - how some complete neophyte came out of the blue and stole the Dem nomination from her. Obamamania is beyond politics and reason. It is a true religious cult, whose adherents reject Christianity yet still believe in Original Sin, transferring it from the evil of being human to the evil of being white.

Thus Obama has become the white liberals' Christ, offering absolution from the Sin of Being White. There is no reason or logic behind it, no faults or flaws of his can diminish it, no arguments Hillary could make of any kind can be effective against it. The absurdity of Hypocrisy Clothed In Human Flesh being their Savior is all the more cause for liberals to worship him: Credo quia absurdum, I believe it because it is absurd.

Thank heavens that the voting majority of Americans remain Christian and are in no desperate need of a phony savior.

He is ridiculous and should not be taken seriously by any thinking American.

the comparison with Jimmy was facetious

but he is relegated to second worst President
because he was bad, but the media did not like him
so everyone knew he was bad
O is bad, but the media like him
so many do not know he is bad
but structurally their only difference is that you can dislike
the policies of Carter
and not have the media call you racist

Ymnbde As bad as Carter was

Ymnbde As bad as Carter was Obama is far worse! It is going to take years to remedy our tattered foreign relations (21 countries, including allies like Germany and France) are going to the UN over the NSA. The US mid east policies and relationships are badly hurt because Obama has repeatedly snubbed Israel, and started talking to the Iranians with out consulting Saudi Arabia. Obama promised the Saudis that we would supply arms to the rebels in Syria and he has not done it. We promised that we would bomb Assad if he used chemical weapons and Putin took advantage of Obama's naivety and we didn't Bomb. These two miss steps have allowed Assad to keep the upper hand strengthening Russia, China and most importantly Iran's hand. Egypt and Libya whose revolutions we supported are going down a dead end dirt road to outhouseville!

Don't impeach him now. The

Don't impeach him now. The results of his incompetence are just starting to cave in on him. The "white guilt" media who have failed to report on all of the other disasters now, with Obamacare, finally have one so large that even they can't ignore it. I actually want the government to get the web site working so his "supporters" can actually see how much their insurance rates have gone up with the program that was supposed to "bring down the cost of health care".

This is a tremendous "the Republicans told you so" moment so sit back, enjoy, and have a few chuckles. Knuckleheads never believe what you tell them. They have to learn the hard way. They were right about Obamacare and they are right about the inevitable financial collapse too. The former should make the knuckleheads think about the later.

I agree but Obamacare is going to cause a really bad recession. Businesses will be laying of people instead hiring. People that have money will not be spending it. The left along with left-wing media will try to blame it on the republicans and the greedy businesses. Many of the mindless sheep that voted for the community organizer will believe them.

"The Obama administration has
Unpublished

"The Obama administration has been accused of cronyism after it was revealed Michelle Obama's Princeton classmate is an executive at the company contracted to build the beleaguered Obamacare website.
Toni Townes-Whitley is senior vice president at CGI Federal, the U.S. arm of a Canadian company which won the no-bid contract for the problem-plagued website.
Townes-Whitley, from the Princeton class of ’85, and Michelle Obama are members of the Association of Black Princeton Alumni.
Earlier this month, Washington Examiner reported the Department of Health and Human Services Centers for Medicare and Medicaid handed CGI Obamacare account without putting the contract out to competitive tender.
It has since been revealed four companies submitted bids, but only CGI was considered for the $93 million Healthcare.gov contract.

As if the headline Obamacare Website Company Had Ties to Obama Fundraising, Michelle Obama story at News Max wasn’t enough corruption for one day, now we find this same company, CGI Federal is in the Hurricane Sandy money give-away to the tune of $1.7 Billion. The only thing is they have only given out 1.2 percent of the funds. First the drill about Mooch and her best bud.
Toni Townes-Whitley, a senior vice president at CGI Federal, is a Princeton classmate of First Lady Michelle Obama, the Daily Caller reported. In addition to being college classmates, both Obama and Townes-Whitley are members of the Association of Black Princeton Alumni.
Close access to the White House was also enjoyed by other senior CGI officials, reports The Washington Examiner.
The Examiner reported that visitor logs show that “CGI Federal President Donna Ryan visited the White House six times prior to her company being selected to do the IT design work behind the high-profile website.”
