Obama More Proud of Passing Health Care Law than Killing Osama Bin Laden

Obama More Proud of Passing Health Care Law than Killing Osama Bin Laden MAR 20, 2012 • BY JOHN MCCORMACK

President Barack Obama recently told a Democratic congresswoman that the proudest achievement of his presidency was passing the national health care law in 2010.

"Last time I saw the president I asked he what he was most proud of," Democratic congresswoman Carolyn Maloney of New York said at a Capitol Hill press conference Tuesday afternoon. "I think he has quite a positive record. Osama bin Laden is no longer with us. ... Libya and Tunisia are transforming to democracy, which is important, I think, for their people and peace and stability--the credit card bill of rights, stabilizing our economy, cracking down on abusive practices in sub-prime lending."

"I didn't know what he was going to say," Maloney continued. "He said he is most proud of having passed health care and providing health care to 40 million Americans who didn't have health care in 2014."

The news that Obama views the passage of the national health care law as his proudest achievement could help Republicans make the case against Obama. The law remains deeply unpopular, and Republicans have repeatedly criticized Obama for focusing on health care rather than the unemployment rate and the economy.

If that’s true then it must be the most heroic thing anyone’s ever done in the last, like, 1,000 years.

Like most real heroes he's modest about the risks he took
and the bravery required to get Bin Laden. Not to mention
the endless training and conditioning. In a recent news
conference he said, “I and the rest of the SEAL team..EEEEK!
a spider!....”

Of course he is more proud of Obamacare.

Bin Laden was an old has been who was being henpecked by his wives.

Obamacare will lead to the destruction of America’s economy and health care

You have to know Obama’s priorities. He wants to break us and he is well on the way to doing it.

Killing one fanatical Muzzie doesn’t mean anything when you’ve designed a plan that will allow you to kill millions of Americans. I can see Barry’s point.

...first of all, he didn’t kill anyone.....yet. He wasn’t even in the room.....the photo had to be redone. Second, when Obamacare gets dumped, he could care less.....this whole charade has been pulled off to steal billions and walk away leaving the US in debt and reeling. He could give a s***.
The clown can’t make a decision on anything....last week he was lobbying against Keystone, this week he’s fast tracking part of it, IF something good happens he wants the credit, if it all goes to s***, he doesn’t know anything.

He’s as hollow as you can get.

Killing an entire country is a much bigger accomplishment.

I’m telling you, if he pulls this off they’ll be singing his praises in mosques for a thousand years.

BOTH OBAMA AND OSAMA HAVE
FRIENDS WHO BOMBED THE PENTAGON

_________________________________________________________

From HumanEvents.com, April 29, 2008:
"By all accounts, he [Obama friend and associate, Bill Ayers] was a ferocious, violent, revolutionary Marxist in his halcyon days as a Weatherman leader. He and his Weatherman bombers were enamored of Ho Chi Minh, Che Guevara, Fidel Castro, Mao Tse-tung -- indeed, all the murderous heroes on the Left. Referring to the Weatherman members in August 1969, he said (according to the FBI): 'We’re revolutionary Communists.'

He got off on the group’s multiple explosions, too, and discusses them rather lovingly in his memoir.

Ideal Bombing Weather:
'Everything was absolutely ideal on the day I bombed the Pentagon,' he writes (although he concedes it was really a group effort). 'The sky was blue. The birds were singing. And the bastards were finally going to get what was coming to them.' (p. 256 in the 2003 edition.)

BOTH OBAMA AND OSAMA HAVE
FRIENDS WHO WANTED TO BOMB FORT DIX

From David Horowitz's FrontPageMag.com/DiscoverTheNetworks.org:
March 6, 1970: "three members of the Weather Underground accidentally killed themselves in a Manhattan townhouse while attempting to build a powerful bomb they had intended to plant at a social dance in Fort Dix, New Jersey -- an event that was to be attended by U.S. Army soldiers. Hundreds of lives could have been lost had the plot been successfully executed."
http://www.discoverthenetworks.org/groupProfile.asp?grpid=6808

"The bomb was intended to be planted at a non-commissioned officer's dance at Fort Dix, New Jersey.
The bomb was packed with nails to inflict maximum casualties upon detonation."

2007 Fort Dix attack plot

A group of six radical Islamist[1] men, allegedly plotting to stage an attack on the Fort Dix military base in New Jersey, United States, were arrested by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) on May 7, 2007. They were subsequently charged with planning an attack against U.S. soldiers. The alleged aim of the six men was said to be to "kill as many soldiers as possible".[2] Their trial began on October 20, 2008. [3]

Opening arguments were presented on October 20, 2008.
Assistant U.S. Attorney William Fitzpatrick said the defendants were inspired by jihad saying "Their motive was to defend Islam. Their inspiration was Al Qaeda and Osama bin Laden.

But, but think of the perks he's had.....so far. Then again, when the piper comes to pay, then no one would want to be him.

Nazi Party

The National Socialist German Workers' Party (German: Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei, abbreviated NSDAP), commonly known in English as the Nazi Party (from the German Nazi, abbreviated from the pronunciation of Nationalsozialist[5]), was a political party in Germany between 1919 and 1945. It was known as the German Workers' Party (DAP) prior to a change of name in 1920.

National Health Care: Medicine in Germany 1918-1945 [Nazi health care]
Does the Modern Bureaucratization of Medicine Risk a Return to the Horrors of National Socialist Medicine?

by Marc S. Micozzi M.D.

Today we are concerned about issues such as doctor-assisted suicide, abortion, the use of fetal tissue, genetic screening, birth control and sterilization, health-care rationing and the ethics of medical research on animals and humans. These subjects are major challenges in both ethics and economics at the end of the twentieth century. But at the beginning of the twentieth century the desire to create a more scientific medical practice and research had already raised the issues of euthanasia, eugenics, and medical experimentation on human subjects. In addition, the increasing involvement of the German government in medical care and funding medical research established the government-medical complex that the National Socialists later used to execute their extermination policies. ..."

Undercover agent Larry Grathwohl discusses the Weather Underground's post-revolution governing plans for the United States:

Larry Grathwohl:

"I asked, 'well what is going to happen to those people we can't reeducate, that are diehard capitalists?' and the reply was that they'd have to be eliminated. And when I pursued this further, they estimated they would have to eliminate 25 million people in these reeducation centers. And when I say 'eliminate,' I mean 'kill.' Twenty-five million people. I want you to imagine sitting in a room with 25 people, most of which have graduate degrees, from Columbia and other well-known educational centers, and hear them figuring out the logistics for the elimination of 25 million people. And they were dead serious."

I think 0bama revels in the idea that he can control the lives of millions including the idea that he can decide their ultimate fate.
