Sebelius: A Liar Or Just Inept? [contains timeline]
Investor's Business Daily ^ | 10/22/2013 | IBD Staff

Posted on 10/23/2013 4:32:17 AM PDT by IBD editorial writer

candal: No wonder HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius is reluctant to testify about the ObamaCare disaster. She has to decide whether to admit that she willfully misled Congress for months or was completely out of touch.

Back in May, amid a flurry of news reports about problems with the ObamaCare exchanges and talk of a "train wreck," Sebelius' agency spun a story in USA Today about how all was well.

According to USA Today, HHS officials said it had "met its deadlines (and) tested its system." What's more, they said exchanges "can support expected large volumes of traffic."

It was all completely bogus.

this is typical of what happens when the leader is a failure who nevers accept being told the bad news. When I was in the military in the 80s, there were posters on the walls about what a failure of leadership it is to demand people only tell you what you want to hear.

obama thinks his ideas don’t stink and you can t talk straight with him.

People are signing up every day. People have available coverage and no one, I think it's important to say, Sanjay, is losing coverage now. The earliest the plans start is January 1st. If you sign up by the 15th of December, you will have coverage on day one. So, people are frustrated with a website, but the product is there. The prices are good. It will not sellout and the prices won't change.

Want to cast bets on how long it will be before one-eye Sebelius slinks off to a $300K tenured position with full benefits, a relocation allowance, and no regular office hours?

I think this goes to show what happens when we elect a community organizer to the top post of administration. Maybe if we got more blocks of people screaming GIVE ME GIVE ME... I suppose it might make things work. It´s just this crowd now that we need to appease. No one needs to think or resolve on how to fix your own problems. We´ve got the MASTERS of taking care of masses organizing the Community. Just wait til they all get in the Super Dome in New Orleans during a hurricane and see how they´ll act. They are going to shoot at the helicopters that bring them food!

She ugly inside and out. Mark Levin has people like her pegged. She is a statist ideologue with no real skills. They are skillful in sneaking into power to further their agenda, but that is about it..

Exactly. It doesn’t have to be one or the other, it can be both. And yes She ugly too.

But just for a minute think of the power this ugly inept liar has.

The Obamacare act places her in charge of the lives of every American in this country. The rules she can make up as she goes along should frighten us to no end. She is in charge of the death panels.

The worst thing about the settled law of Obamacare is that it is unsettled. It is a law that allows Sebelius to make the rules as she goes along.

There's nothing more pathetic than someone who doesn't even know what they don't know. Some people of even below average IQ acknowledge their dumbness and have someone to keep them informed of what's going on.

Sebelius is coming across as too dumb to even know she's dumb about supervising a complex system.

“She has to decide whether to admit that she willfully misled Congress for months or was completely out of touch.”

This is modus operandi for this unit, isn’t it? Just keep up the run-around long enough for the media and low-information-types to forget all about it.

Purposeful liar.
My head hurts from the lack of realization of what is occurring. THEY KNEW IT WAS GOING TO PERFORM LIKE THIS.

I hope Cruz or Lee or Steve King had someone who will have the gusto to point this out IN A CAMERA on MICROPHONE.

$600M was purposely laundered, spent, to Dem/commie donors. We all know this.

This 0bummercare fiasco isn’t a fiasco; Sebilius was trained for years for this moment to take the flack. We’ll hear trial balloons any day now about a single payer -The US Gubmnt - you know it and I know it.

Will our real men and women (Palin, Bachman) stand up and ask the hard questions? Like: “Where was the $600M spent? Show us. Is this purposeful, sirs? Was the money simply given to 0bummer supporters? Clinton supporters?” How about, “How was $200M more calculated and why will this fix this? Are those who would get such contracts Dem donors?” This focus needs to be trialed on the premise of it being PURPOSEFULLY AWEFUL, not by accident.

Lying is just one tool True Believers of collectivism employ to advance the agenda.

Obama-care is just another example of the ‘a few broken eggs’ analogy of communism.

She is another leftist woman who has radical plans for the rest of us. Her actions like those of a number of leftist hags are amplified by the dryness of her loins which results in a self-hatred she balances by making other peoples lives miserable. She considers herself above all around her and thinks she is a god who has the right to decide if others live or die via abortion of those yet born or the aged by committee. She would have been comfortable in the 1940’s rounding up Jews and putting them to death.

She is the grim reaper of government but unlike the Nazis of the past she and her masters will use the law called Obamacare to collect the information they need to identify who they will mark with their new Star of David. From that they will destroy all they consider enemies.

Obamacare has nothing to do with health care or insurance and everything to do with the evil that comes from the hate of those without souls who will crush out the life of others without a second thought.

Inept people are often liars, to cover their mistakes.

As to whether Obama will fire Sebelius, he can't.

Haven't you noticed he never fires anyone of any consequence? Fired people are often vindictive. Obama cannot afford a former employee seeking revenge to write a book or tell all to FNC.

Sebelius will announce her “retirement” early next year to spend more time with family. Obama will fill the position with another incompetent sycophant. Rinse & repeat until they have stolen, wasted, or ruined everything in this nation worth having.

An honorable, patriotic, competent President would have fired Holder over Fast & Furious, Clinton over Benghazi, & the head of the IRS for its scandals, along with Ms. Lerner. He fired no one.

So HHS is holding a meeting for Dems only today, so its official that our government is one party rule.

Given her decline to testify to congress this week and Carneys statement that the Admin cooperates with “legitimate” oversight only, how much added evidence does anyone need that this is a lawless group?

What legal “bumb in the road” will these people ignore next?

I hear from the Howie Carr show that she is appearing at some big deal gala at the JFK center.

Instead of appearing before the inquiry committee...who should have sent a platoon to go get her...in chains.

Anyone going to picket her Boston arrival?

This became a huge topic in Japan after WII and one of the reasons for their incredible economic success

During the war the Emperor was surrounded by Yes-men who told him everything was just peachy

After they lost it became common knowledge and a sign of huge disrespect NOT TO tell the truth, especially when those in management needed information- good info OR bad info

Obama shows every sign of being told good news always. That is why he thinks prices are lower, no one is losing their jobs, and he can say so with such conviction
