Exactly. Even many conservatives fail to understand this.

He is little more than a teleprompter reader. He is incredibly evil and not very smart.

His concerns are only what makes him feel good. This includes (in approximate order of priority):
drugs
gay sex
sticking it to whitey
revenge on America
feeling important by giving speeches and appearing on tv
golf
parties
vacations
hobnobbing with celebrities
pretending to be an intellectual by learning to parrot a few stock phrases (”punching above their weight class” was one of my favorites. See this (sad/hilarious) link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=erYpXzE9Pxs)
pretending to be an intellectual by learning to operate a Blackberry
pretending to be an intellectual by claiming to have an academic record and book authorship
pretending to be an intellectual by carrying around a book

He is not the architect of any of this. He is mostly clueless about what goes on and his handlers keep him in line by several means:
allowing him the delusion that he is smart and in charge
controlling his drug access
money
threatening to expose his sexual preferences
threatening to expose his origins

Sometimes the speeches and tv appearances are unpleasant for him rather than a means of stroking his ego. He does not like questions because he has no answers. He much prefers the adoring sycophants applauding him.

Reasons he is so often late for events:
drug balance needs to stabilize
sticking it to whitey
petty need to inconvenience others in order to “prove” he is more important (more ego gratification)
contempt for those he inconveniences

Why he lies:
he is told to
he often does not even understand the lies he is reading from the teleprompter
(see also reasons for other behavior above)
CYA
it’s a deeply ingrained habit. He lies even when he doesn’t need to
he is afraid that if he ever allows any truth to escape, the whole thing might start to unravel
whatever the current lie is, it’s probably covering up for some previous lie

The man is both monumentally incompetent AND a liar.

The first part of that depends entirely on just what his intentions are.

He just isn’t as nearly smart as he thinks he is.

Unfortunately, Valery Jarrett is as smart as the kenyan thinks himself to be and even more malevolent.

CNN, yes. But S.E. Cupp is not a Lib/Prog drone. See Post #6:

Better yet, Google S.E. Cupp and enjoy!

——Is President Barack Obama making this up as he goes-—

No, recall what the witch from the west said. Recall that the law is 2000+ pages with 22,000 pages of regulations.

The President is making it up as he reads to find out what’s there. He is only half way through the law and barely started on the regs.

The reason they are having trouble coming to grips with this is that the left would then have to admit that they were either stupid enough to be duped or undiscerning enough to fail to detect incompetence. Either one is an admission they are not going to make, as they earn their bread selling the authority of their investigative and analytical abilities.

That ain't gonna happen.

So, they stall with puff pieces like this selling pretended insight.

There is a third possibility. What if it is going according to plan. Too many people could have predicted these problems, knowing anything about economics, one could easily predict the failures we are seeing. For instance, in today’s tech world, you would almost have to PROGRAM what we are seeing at the web site. I run a web site ... I would have to “make” it have problems as bad as this website is showing. I really believe they WANT the chaos and collapse of health care system. We are experiencing the transformation of America...it isn’t coming, it it HERE...we are inside the coup.

C. Cupp. It’s a pseudonym, right?

It’s still about sex, he is screwing the nation! We really need an orchestrated march on the WH with eviction papers in hand!

Obama makes lying fashionable. Just as Clinton made oral sex fashionable.

It will require many more employees. The largest employer in Great Britain is the National Health Service.

‘Rats and especially Ø are in a unique political position not offered to either the GOP-e or the GOP-TP: the ability to unabashedly lie and have the enemedia cover for you.

In this case, perhaps Ø so consumed by a huge agenda win, just calculated that the lies were worth it and likely to be smoothed over by the media.

In this scenario, Ø may not necessarily be in trouble. After all, Øcare is still the law, it still promises to buy millions of votes.

The aircraft analogy to Øcare is apt, but the analalgous part, rather than a component of the airplane, is more fundamental. In this case the aircraft won’t fly because something went wrong with Bernoulli’s Principle.

The secret to selling Obamacare is convincing the masses that higher premiums, higher deductibles, paying for coverage they neither want nor need, rationed care and long waits for care is an improvement. I’m not sure it can’t be done. ‘Doublethink’ is no longer just a theory.

“The man is both monumentally incompetent AND a liar.”
////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

True but he was not INSTALLED as president for his competency, the people who ENGINEERED his ascent to the whitehouse were under no illusion that he was competent to do anything more complicated than reading a teleprompter. He actually may be stupid enough to have believed he was the man for the job but not those who arranged this disaster. Those who actually voted for him were dupes of every known category from the totally uneducated to those who line the walls of their offices with framed diplomas, “educated” far beyond their native intelligence and incapable of a logical sequence of thought, smugly believing in their own superiority for no actual reason whatsoever.

The people who put this mountebank in the white house are sitting somewhere laughing their asses off at how easy it was to make fools of the Americans.

Obama is a puppet but I am actually beginning to wonder if he is too stupid to even realize that he IS a puppet.

What if insurance companies are, in fact, part of all of this? They get higher rates. The Democrats get a path to a single payer system...

If there’s a single payer system, the insurance companies will be left out completely.”””

You are correct.

Obama wants to destroy all the health care insurance companies.
\\
Since many insurance companies cover other kinds of problems, how many will still be standing to provide house insurance-—car insurance—business insurance—etc?

I think Obama wants to entirely destroy America.

As a Muslim, they don’t believe in INSURANCE—they believe insurance is GAMBLING...

Connect the dots. Obama is after a larger part of the American economy. How much of a hit will Wall Street & pensions take if health care insurance companies stocks are removed??? How many people have stocks in insurance companies? How many pensions have stocks in insurance companies.???

That's why the rollout couldn't, and can't, be delayed, despite his knowledge of the problems.

I tend to disagree. This is the Chicago Mob, not the Muslim Brotherhood. Eliminating insurance companies eliminates a huge source of campaign funds, lobbying, etc.
