Barack Obama will speak to the nation today at 11:25 a.m. EDT from the Rose Garden with citizen props standing around him to tout the glories of Obamacare. The White House has leaked to the press Obama is "frustrated" about the problems with the government exchange website.

Let me set my clock—not!

I darned near break a leg running to turn off the tv or radio when the clown is on.

When and how will this national nightmare end?

State of the Obamacare Sham Wow

Just to think, in a few short years, 0bamacare will be looked on as the crowning achievement of Hussein's socialist regime; with the media overlooking the fact that it is a total disaster!

"When and how will this national nightmare end?"

I ask that every day too. I also ask how in the Sam Hell did this bozo get in. I know,I know the LSM, Santa Clause etc. I just didn't know there were that many low information voters.
If the Bozo comes on my TV he is immediately muted. I have never in my 67 years disliked any one this much. I think my daddy hated LBJ almost as much.

Probably no questions allowed--just like his statement to WH employees on the government shutdown/debt limit deal. He will just tout the success of Obamacare with the human props standing behind him and say that the glitches will be fixed. He will make a phony attempt at taking responsibility saying something like the buck stops here and that he promises the American people personally that the problems will be resolved.

We will hear that there have been 19 million hits on the system--evidence that there is great interest in getting health care. And then he will follow it with other bogus statistics. Finally, he will mention that the state sponsored exchanges are doing much better. Speech made, problem solved.

On big infomercial for Obamacare.

This morning I have been listening to Los Angeles radio station AM 1070, CBS, “all news, all the time”. They keep mentioning Zero’s upcoming speech regarding Obamacare and all the computer glitches. They also keep mentioning (in the same breath) how Facebook is down this morning with numerous computer glitches. What a fortuitous coincidence that all of a sudden Facebook has glitches, that I have never heard of any mentioned previously, at the same time Zero is about to speak. Looks like another ‘all computer programs have glitches’ moment coming up. I wonder how long it takes Facebook to ‘fix’ its’ glitches - if they are even real. Zuckerberg will probably get a special pass to an upcoming Whitehouse party for giving Zero something to compare his Obamacare glitches to and take some cover.

Reporters are not allowed to ask how many people have actually signed up for Obamacare.

That would be racist, and could cost them their jobs.

Is he going to talk about the huge deductibles and giant increases in cost?

Maybe he will talk about how it isn’t a tax that became a tax?

How is that Benghazi thing going for him?

Earlier this morning I pulled up the healthcare.gov website and looked at ‘plans’ in my area: 50+, single.

There are 41 plans from 3 insurance companies. The premiums ranged from $190.58 for the lowest catastrophic coverage plan to about $722.40 for the top cadillac plan with dental, etc.

The website showed the costs, but there was no way to compare the plans to see exactly what they did or did not cover, nor what plan deductibles were.

The Political Fallout of Comparing Politicians to Adolph Hitler

Los Angeles, CA—Adolph Hitler was evil personified. Hitler murdered six million Jews and over nine million Germans lost their lives because of that vile despot.
Jews in particular become offended when any of our politicians are compared to Hitler. They take the position that Hitler was so evil he stands alone as an object of hate. Suggesting anyone else may be trying to fill Hitler’s shoes marginalizes that dictator’s horrific accomplishments.

Let me say that Hitler was not just evil but more importantly he had great success in his world-class crime spree and genocide. It’s not that others are not less evil; they just never had Hitler’s kind of success.
Josef Stalin was every bit as evil as Hitler and was also an enemy of Jews. Josef Stalin killed as many or more people than Hitler, but since Stalin was victorious in defeating Hitler his henchmen authored the history books. There were a vast amount of Soviet war criminals that got a free ride after the war.

There are other lesser evil politicians than Hitler and Stalin. They are not less evil only less successful.
Politicians by nature want to dominate entire populations. As they obtain power and the spoils of office they become obsessed with wanting more power and wealth. The more power they have the more they want. They invent ways to tax people into slavery and eliminate freedom. Any politician can become another Hitler.

After World war Two and the Holocaust the surviving Jews adopted the slogan, “Never Again!” The problem is that since the beginning of mankind we have had despots and Holocausts. We don’t have video, film or pictures documenting those horrors because that technology did not exist. We simply treat the older history is intangible legend.

The fact is with human beings we can count on many more Hitlers and Stalins. That especially true if we allow our politicians to have absolute power. We are making the same mistakes with Obama as the Germans and Russians did with their despots. We are giving him and his henchmen more power than they could possibly need.

As humans we have a duty to rein in politicians when they extend their authority over liberty and freedom. With Barack Obama we are making the same mistakes the Germans, Russians and Italians did before World war Two with their despots.

How soon we forget how Hitler promised the people of Germany everything. Hitler was loved and even nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize. He was Time Magazine’s Man of the Year!

Could we travel the same road with Obama or any American politician? We’d be foolish to say that it could never happen. It did in the past and will in the future. What’s past is prologue.

It is anything but wrong to watch and compare every politician to past mass murderers that held public office. It is our duty. If we ignore our duty to watch and control our politicians we may wake up and find slavery, torture and genocide right in our faces. We will have nobody to blame but ourselves.

Obama Care
Meltdown Now In Plain Sight

Posted 10/18/2013 06:45 PM ET

Glitch Watch: President Obama says he’s glad the shutdown is over. He may soon wish it were back, since there’s now nothing to distract attention from the cataclysmic ObamaCare meltdown — and who’s to blame for it.

If Obama and his fellow Democrats hoped that the startup “glitches” would soon fade from view as technicians patched up the federal exchange, they were badly mistaken. Since its launch, ObamaCare’s problems have only mounted.

Tech experts are now saying that the federal exchange site — which covers 36 states —may be hopelessly flawed. USA Today reports that the government apparently used 10-year-old technology to build it, and quotes experts saying that it will need a complete overhaul before it works properly.

Glitches that were supposed to be fixed still plague the site. A poll conducted by United Sample found that of the 832 who tried to log into the federal exchange, only small fraction said they had no problems. The rest got error messages, had to try again later, couldn’t create an account or found that the system was down.

Reports also indicate that, in the rush to get the sites built, the exchanges mostly don’t let customers search for plans based on which doctors and hospitals they have in their networks — critical information to many looking for coverage.

I don’t think he was elected, he was scammed in. If you looked at newspaper websites for example before the election, the reader comments were almost always 90% AGAINST Obama...Yet the guy wins? Do liberals avoid posting comments on news websites? With their big fat mouths? I don’t think so The fact is the majority of the country was against Obama yet he won anyway. We have scam artists running this government and RINOs who don’t do anything about it.

"I don’t think he was elected, he was scammed in."

I agree.
He cheated in ways we may never know. Starting over a year before the election. I believe he was involved in the Herman Cain situation.
I believe he used NSA wiretapping and other methods. We already know he used the IRS to scare Tea party people.
HE HAS GOT TO GO. WE MUST GET THIS SCUM OUT OF OUR HOUSE. . . . . . .

If this is like his last big petty and petulant spiel, he will be blaming the Republicans and the Tea Party and Rush Limbaugh.

But, I state the obvious.

Who will be the first lib media commentator to proclaim this the greatest speech of his presidency?
