RE :”Bill Daley: Firing Sebelius Like Firing Captain Of The Titanic”

Get this, she declines the House hearings on Obamcare this week to go to Obamacare pep allies instead, so Issa brings in the Obamcare website contractor developers to testify on this disaster, and they ALL blame her agency and they claim they warned her it would not work.

And no one there from Obama admin agencies not her to defend themselves This gets better every day!

Who are they kidding? She's not the Captain of the Titanic, she's more like Bruce Ismay, Chairman of the White Star line, that got his a** into a life boat over many others, including children. We need to throw her overboard!

Now I've heard it all.
The "At this point what difference does it make??!!??" explantion as a dismissal of incompetence.

This mental giant can't figure out that the Captain of the Titanic had the good grace to go down with his ship, as the price of incompetence. Had Sebelius the same good grace no one would be calling for her firing.

D'OH!

I think we need to keep her on the job. She’s already proved exactly how incompetent she is.

When your opponent is making a fool of himself - don’t get in the way of the show. The Dems will still be screwing around with 0bumblesdoesntcare and that idiot website in September 14. By then the American public will be ready to skin them.

When we have the Senate, we can repeal this turkey and put something in its place.

So how about giving her the Costa Concordia treatment instead? A few years in the pen for negligence and shipwreck - and if ever there was a shipwreck, it’s Øbamacare - would do her a world of good.

Please, please keep her there! If anything, expand her duties. Make sure all decisions go through her! This masterpiece has come at a phenomenal bargain price of $634 million and we haven’t even brought in the “A” Team yet.

Never have we seen such a monument to the folly of liberalism in our lifetimes. It is the best educator we have. I really hope Obama fights off any efforts to delay the mandate or taxes and penalties and continues intimidating the private insurers. We had to pass it to see what’s in it. Now we have to fully launch it and follow the law to the letter to FEEL what’s in it. Conservative minded people are strong and can survive this. The liberals need to enjoy what they have gleefully supported.

Soooooo.... what he’s saying is ‘what difference at this point does it make?’

It’s called ‘Accountability.’

Maybe he should look it up.

The Captain of the Titanic had the grace and good sense to go down with his ship.

FWIW, to put things into perspective , you could build a replica of the Titanic in today's dollars for less than the 600 and some million dollars US Government on this unworkable web site- literally.

Some Aussie Billionaire is set on rebuilding an exact replica of Titanic to the original blue prints.

The cost - a “staggering” $400 million dollars.

I wish we would look at the problems with Obamacare like we did with the Boeing 787 Dreamliner. The Dreamliner had numerous problems before it was certified for flight.

We all remember when in January 16, 2013 the ANA flight from Ube to Tokyo Haneda was diverted after a burning smell was detected. Inspection revealed a battery fire! And then, a similar incident on a JAL 787s at Boston's Logan Airport! This created a huge crisis for Boeing's state-of-the-art airline. Instead of being called the Dreamliner, it was dubbed, the Nightmare-liner! All 50 in-service Boeing 787s were grounded. This was the culmination of a long series of problems that Boeing had to correct. Boeing took this battery problem seriously. They spent 100,000 hours making modifications to the battery design before sending a small army of technicians to 13 international locations, transporting 15 tons of tools per repair kit, and installing newly designed batteries in the field, taking five days per airplane working around the clock in two 12-hour shifts. This is the way the private sector responds to a serious problem. Not so with the arrogant Obama Syndicate.

Instead, the Democrats and the Obama Syndicate arrogantly said, “Smoke? What smoke?” They were not going to ground Obamacare. They were going to keep it going even though it was going down in flames. Obama was in the cockpit crying, “Keep this plane going, we are not going to divert!” He was willing to shut down the government to make his point. He was willing to ignore the alarm bells, the loss of power, the aircraft engineers and all the rules—yes, the Constitution! Obama and the Democrats were willing to ruin the lives of millions of their fellow Americans by flying their version of the Dreamliner.

Obamacare is no Dreamliner. It is a Nightmare-liner. It is a death ship that has taken flight just in time for Halloween. It could just as well be one of those broomstick with a witch or a flying monkey from the Wizard of Oz. Those who board that flight will have their lives ruined just like it will ruin America. Obamacare is a plane that won't fly.

I guess nobody told Daly that the reason the captain of the Titanic wasn’t fired was that he was dead. Is he suggesting that Sibelius commit Hari-Kari.

Speaking of the Titanic...

Daley could have had the Dem nomination for Governor for the asking. They're desperate to dump Quinn. And he'd probably have won the general election easily.

So why did Daley balk> Easy..Because Illinois IS the Titanic, and it's about to collapse. The unions will fight any reform, so he passed..

Better to keep her there.

She is a proven incompetent fool and that’s exactly the type of people we need in charge of Obamacare.

We need this monstrosity to come crashing into the ground. And with this dumbocrat team in charge, that’s very likely to happen soon.

While I too think Seebully us needs to pay for her involvement in every sinister plot happening in this admin, to fire her would do just what it did to the likes of Van Jones and Rahm Emanuel...

They take the blame, they get thrown under the bus, they leave their position, then plead the 5th and keep their mouth shut and the whole scandal goes away and those who really are to blame get away with it scott free.

I say, keep her in her place, MAKE her testify and LIE under oath, because you KNOW she will (she just lied on her interview with Jon Stewart) and add her name the the ever growing list of traitors to this country. Then push push push, to go up the chain of command and get everyone involved in this crap.

But will they do that? Or will will it be SOP in this admin?

It’s not going to do much right now

That's such a bald-faced lie.

She's in charge of everything that has yet to be done with ObamaCare, and she's in charge of an entire governmental department.

It's like saying that Lincoln should not have replaced clerk/general Halleck for US Grant as General in Chief with the explanation that "the battles are already lost".

If the captain of the Titanic had lived, he would have been fired.

By the way, Abe Vigoda is also alive - but he does not need to be fired - http://www.abevigoda.com/
