Skip to comments.The Obama-disaster news conference
Posted on 11/14/2013 4:19:29 PM PST by mandaladon
President Obamas just-completed press conference was arguably worse than the Obamacare rollout. Alternately confessing, apologizing and blame shifting, he inadvertently made the case against his own executive skills, Obamacare and big government in general. His announced fix is aimed at remedying the mass cancellation of individually-purchased insurance plans by letting insurance companies re-offer non-compliant policies. This makes clear that contrary to the statements from Jay Carney and Valerie Jarrett, Obamacare and not the insurers were the cause of the cancellations. Obama let slip that this is one big blame-shifting exercise when he announced that no one would be able to say Obamacare caused them to lose insurance. It is of course false because it is unlikely all the canceled policies can be restored. The fix undermines the essential premise of Obamacare, namely that young, healthy people need to be herded into the exchanges. Not only will this explicitly encourage many people to stay out but also will communicate that the entire program is in flux. Dont sign up now the deal may improve as the president gets more desperate! But it really was the series of unbelievable lines for which this press conference will be remembered: We fumbled the rollout on this health-care law. I completely get how upsetting this can be for a lot of Americans. It is a complex process. I was not informed directly [How about indirectly?!] that the Web site would not be working. . . . I dont think Im stupid enough to go around saying this is going to be like shopping on Amazon or Travelocity, a week before the Web site opens, if I thought that it wasnt going to work.

MSN report: Obama was cocaine-using gay hustler in high school
From a conservative opinion column in the WaPo.
I guess it is too much to hope and pray that Ophonybama and his LIEberal hangers-on will resign en-mass and ask for asylum in some Communist or Moslem country, taking their stolen taxpayer funds with them?
If the Washington Pest is going after him, it must be really bad.
Like when LBJ lost Walter Cronkite.
“This is a president adrift, confused and entirely over his head”
So true WaPo and everyone else knows
that the Emperor has no clothes
Rubin the RINO finally hits someone who is a Democrat. Did she even mention that Ken Cuccinelli (whom she loathes) LED THE FIGHT against Obamacare?
Since when has Rubin been a Conservative????
How much tax payer money is going to be used to fix this now?
How much tax payer money is going to be used to fix the next problem with this 2000 page bill?
Defund it now. Oh too late, than no raising the debt ceiling until full repeal.
Obama is a disaster, was, is and will be.
I love his quote, “I dont think Im stupid enough to go around saying...”
With Obama, never ascribe to stupid what can be explained by malevolence.
Is that with or without a sarc tag?
Yep, people would have actually bought affordable health insurance,
and this is everything but affordable.
I think he has few options left in the cornered rat playbook than to attack Iran. At this point I don’t see too many domestic opportunities to shake the heat he is in and the last thing the imposter will do is the right thing....resign in disgrace.
Then he could blame the (continuous) bad economy on Biden for low information voters consumption...
OK, conservative-ish. Not as far left as Dowd.
The washington compost is complicit in bringing Clown Prince nobama into power. All are criminals. Shame!
Never trust a homosexual cocaine using compulsive liar.
A good rule to live by.
Or he could just send Biden outside without his helmet. Shouldn't take long to create a distraction.
It is beginning to look like the American people would have been better off, if the President was indeed just an empty chair. At least the chair would know its limitations.
“I guess it is too much to hope and pray that Ophonybama and his LIEberal hangers-on will resign en-mass and ask for asylum in some Communist or Moslem country, taking their stolen taxpayer funds with them?”
someone should propose legislation, they can take as much loot as they can carry and will be provided safe passage to the border of their choice.
Sounds like a plan!
I’m always torn when it comes to Obama’s behavior. On the one hand, he’s not very smart, just extremely ideological and focused on imposing his ideology (much of which is very personal and really means just imposing himself and making clear that he’s on top). On the other, he really hates the US and I think he is trying to bring us down, although again, in a way that will benefit him and give him a platform for even greater domination on a global level.
I am really hoping that the stupid part will keep the malevolent part from succeeding.
How could there possibly be any more problems with this well thought out plan?
Oh, I think he was DEFINITELY stupid enough!
But he was stupid enough to say that when the exchanges opened on October 1st, youd be be able to purchase high-quality health insurance for less than the cost of your cell phone bill!
... and he was stupid enough to tell Americans to call an 800 number for their insurance in a lame attempt to pimp the law a little over a week ago.
This is from the Wash Post? Wow!
He is a complete ass
EVERYTHING President Muhammad Al-Obama DOES is illegal.
