The disaster known as Obamacare has distempered our entire healthcare system, in addition to contributing to the disastrous stagnation of the economy and, hopefully, the end of democrat leadership in Washington.

THe ACA has distempered our lives by forcing our current health plans to be canceled before new policies are put in place. Betsy McCaughey argues that this was a lie from the beginning, here: http://spectator.org/archives/2013/10/30/a-lie-from-day-one

Here's hoping that Obamacare will ultimately prove to be worse for the democrat party than it is for Americans in general. That's a tall order.

It may be because I've just started sipping my first coffee, but I don't get the "sea bass" reference.

Couldn’t get sharks with lasers on their heads because of endangered species act, so they had to get sea bass. At least they were ill tempered.

If the third party voters get real and vote republican, and if McAwful can be portrayed as a proxy for Obamacare, Cooch has a shot. I wouldn't bet any money you can't afford to lose.

I’m sure the blame-shifting will reach new heights with Sebelius’ testimony. I hope that the republicans pound her early and often on how and why CGI (whom she will blame) got the huge, no-bid contract. The connection between the FLOTUS and her Princeton pal at CGI needs to be explored in detail.

Great rant. Thanks for the link. Maybe, just maybe, the accumulated weight of all of the lies of the past five years has reached a critical mass, and even some of the dullards on the other side are realizing that Obama can’t be believed, and therefore can’t be trusted.

If Cuccinelli upsets McAwful, and if the exit polls attribute the results to dissatisfaction with Obamacare, I think we are likely to be on the cusp of a sea change that will make 2010 look like a narrow victory. Every democrat senator in a red state will be running for cover, which might lead to who-knows-what when the next “fund the government” fiasco arrives.

Circle of Life,Simba.

Karma will kiss it and make it all better.

The numbers say so.

And the Obstinance of the Senate, and The administration over Ocare, provide a target rich environment.

2014 + 2016 will equal 1776.

your scenario completely discounts Satan’s influence, which i believe is very real. The bible speaks of people being blind and deaf to the truth. i have seen enough of that to know that it’s real.

Satan can have a great influence.

But...God doesn’t trifle with him. He sends an Archangel.

And FWIW, you might want to spend an hour reading Maccabees. Particularly from 3:42.

God helps the just.

explorer texted me last week for a reality check. she works with incredibly smart people, phD scientists. They are full bore Obamabot true believers. They were discussing Obamacare and they said oh you can't believe what you read on Twitter about Ocare failing, that's not real etc. These are brilliant minds who do not see the obvious logical fallacy of their true belief. THIS guy gets it. THAT is what we are up against. hobbes is presuming reasonable people will be made to see the truth/logic and will come around on this. I do not think that is remotely a given. As this guy says, the litany of scandals and failures that this administration has given birth to, SHOULD sink it like a stone, yet they are still largely buoyant. People either don't care or don't believe it. My disillusionment is with my fellow man

Scientists, and PhD’s are the most Godless of people, in General.

Lack of Hope, is Lack of Faith.

And FWIW...they aren’t necessarily brilliant minds, they are credentialed minds.

Read Maccabees. Out Numbered. Out Spent. Victorious.

God Favors the Just.

Took 30 years to defeat Communism.

OMG will you please not act like i am unfamiliar with Maccabees? My faith in God saves ME, not our country. I am not convinced that it is God’s will that our country remain great. God’s promise doesn’t extend to saving political boundaries. God doesn’t see AMERICANS, he sees believers.

Yes, good article. We can only hope and pray that enough people wake up and consider trying the alternative (Constitutional gov’t limited by the rule of law).

It’s not a sure bet, but the status quo is not sustainable.

No, God despises evil, the conversation over the destruction of Sodom and Gomorra did not center around believers, but the Good.....

And he was going to spare it, for a minimum pf Good People.

You shouldn’t despair....that’s all. : )

Of course, I’m just not convinced that His plan is some huge comeuppance for that lot and the vindication of believers. Not until judgment day that is. People of faith prayed their hearts out last November knowing what we’d be in for with this bunch and God chose to let this happen for His reasons. I’m just saying that His reasons may not include the comeuppance we so ardently wish for.

I don’t think we have any hope for leaders in the future - none. By 2016 many of us will be struggling to pay the increased health care premiums and additional costs to healthcare that will now fall under the huge deductibles - along with few jobs and what I fear will be absolute flood gates opening along our southern border as they allow for citizenship to that third world nation. More and more will become dependent upon the government just to eat.

I’m not despairing but my faith is in God not men, even Republicans. It may be that God intends to make things so bad that there is no hope but to call on Him. Hope lies with God, the solution may not be a political one.

I actually disagree with your comment - there are disasters that happen all over the world every day. Superstorm Sandy wasn’t any worse than a large tornado or a major flood -it just hit a more dense population that didn’t heed warnings as they should have. I have sympathy for their losses - truly - and wish the media would blame FEMA, and by association, obam, like they did President Bush for the delays in help and/or insurance companies refusing to pay.

If it weren't so serious to the future of the country, it would be laughable that Obama seems to be so distempered by simple oppostion to any of his plans ... This from a man who has deemed trips to vacation havens (or the golf course) more important than getting his nose dirty in actual, constructive political back-and-forth; someone who has been more comfortable with reassigning or delegating blame outside his circle, while this wimp deserted his Constitutional duties in the process. When responsibility came knocking squarely on his front door, Mr. "I Will Not Rest" impeded all investigative efforts to get to the bottom of scandals such as Benghazi, NSA bugging, IRS, etc. Then there are the obvious acts against our long-time allies upon whom we've spied termed merely insignificant, or being conveniently "unknown" to the Pres_ent.

On the economic front, Obama clearly shows a lack of will (at best) in realistically dealing with burgeoning unemployment -- for example, the Jobs Council over which he should have regularly presided met only sparingly if at all; with the promotion of Obamacare, it's plain that he clearly desired Temp employment to grow despite his pronouncements, and his ongoing policies edited permanent positions from the workforce, for all intents & purposes.

This mounting evidence of malfeasance is taking place amidst deeper issues within this Administration that have likely yet to be discovered. Regrettably however, no amount or repetition of such deeds permit further investigation by the current slavish mainstream Media.

Yes. Bigger disasters happen all the time. And no, natural disasters are not a sign of a wrathful God.

But the timing of it sealed the 2012 election.

Amd the media is what it is.
