The left is now eating its own: MoveOn.org not happy ObamaCare has become a "political nightmare'
American Thinker ^ | 11/20/2013 | Sally Zelikovsky

MoveOn.org is not happy that ObamaCare has become a "political nightmare" so they are blaming their cronies in the "mainstream media" (yes, they actually use that term) for failing to present balanced coverage of ObamaCare's successes. [See their latest mass email below.] To combat this grave injustice, they are launching a campaign against the Democrat-Media Complex by flooding newsrooms and the internet with stories of the millions of Americans who have purportedly benefitted from ObamaCare.

Anyone who has been paying attention for the last 5 years -- even a liberal -- knows that any claim that the press is slanted against the left is laughable. The media have been major proponents and advocates for ObamaCare since it was a glimmer in the President's eye. But the Obama minions at MoveOn must deflect responsibility for this mess away from the President and congressional Democrats in order to complete his utopian transformation of America from now until his term is over.

What's really got me jazzed about MoveOn.org's announcement of this campaign against the media, is their admission in the body of the email that the economy is still struggling. In claiming that 26 year olds might have already benefited from ObamaCare, MoveOn stated, "If you're recently out of college and struggling to find employer-based coverage in the sluggish economy-you can now opt to stay on your parents' plan until you're 26 years old." [Emphasis added.] As far as admissions go, it doesn't get any better than this.

The far left won’t accept anything less than full socialized medicine as a fix and the democrats don’t have the courage to bring it to a vote. LOL

Millions of people? LOL. Where are they? Are they European? Do they live in China? Austrailia?
What did they do? Text in their applications?

So, they are not happy because it is a "political" disaster, but it doesn't bother them that it is a "real" disaster?

Nice touch fatboy.

Dear Leader said 100,000,000 people signed up (on the glitchy conference call which was designed to discuss the glitchy website).

He lied again. "Period".

If I'm not mistaken, the ACA bill allows non-citens to sign up for obomacare. If so, doesn't that open the door for every person living on the globe?

Well, the MSM has suffered financially in recent years, and has greatly reduced their staff.

They just cannot afford to put 10,000 full-time investigative reporters on the street out there to find Obamacare’s one success.

Here's a little MoveOn history. Back when Obama was first running for the nomination, there was another progressive (a real one) in competition for their support. That would be Dennis Kucinich. They had a vote to determine who their membership preferred, and Kucinich won the vote. So what did MoveOn do?.....they announced they weren't going to endorse either one, and waited awhile to ordain Obama as their choice.

MoveOn got what they deserved. On our side, I hope the RINOs/RNC/globalists suffer the same miserable deserved fate. It's not nice to ignore your base.

Under the ACA, each added dependent over the age of 21 added to the parent’s policy will increase the monthly premium due. No more one-amount-fits-all family premium.

Another “improvement” to the health care financing ecosystem.

What self respecting 26 year old would still want to be tied to Mommy and Daddy’s apron strings?

Amazing to me.

"Dear Move-On Member...Can you share your story (or that of a family member) today?"

Do I hear the sounds of crickets? I wonder how many of those 100,000 who've signed up are Move-On members?

I heard last night that 70-80 percent of the software program to collection the money still needs to be written and will not be ready in January. That means that even if one could sign up, they can't collect the money. The Obamacare death spiral has begun and they know it.

The millions of people who benefited from Obamacare are the same millions who showed up at the million man march. They are the same millions who stuff ballot boxes in favor of democrats and who are homeless and infected with AIDS during republican presidential terms but disappear during democratic terms.

The prophet Elijah was laughing at the prophets of Baal slashing themselves bloody while asking their god to bring down fire.

So, don’t feel guilty, feel like Elijah and enjoy.

Oh, I’m laughing. But, Elijah didn’t try to help them slash themselves; he just observed and laughed.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't that the definition of a snake devouring itself?
