TOM BROKAW: Well, there have been several low points, but this is certainly a low point at a critical time, coming into the 2014 elections, and a lot of Democrats beginning to bail on the idea of Obamacare. What was striking to me about that statement, "We should have been aware." Advertise
I would think, given the importance of Obamacare or the Affordable Care Act, eight months ago the president would have started every meeting with, "How are we doing? Is that going to be ready? That's going to be our big play for the second term," and demanding from Kathy Sebelius and other people who are involved in it that they were ready. And sending people over there to take a look at the rollout. That it suddenly landed the way that it did, in utter chaos, and it's not going to be an easy fix, is just inexplicable.

Lots of people have scored billions from these crooks. And as far as I’m concerned, those who don’t see it are just as guilty. There needs to be a run on piano wire.
More than likely they were melding code built back when Hillary was planning the overhaul of U.S. health care (in the 90's) together with what the Canadian company already used for their universal health care. MILLIONS of lines of code would take years and hundreds of programmers to create and that's after the design was completely done - which would have also taken a lot of time on its own. If they were still insisting on changes weeks before the roll-out, it furthered the complexity of any possible smooth implementation and we already know regression testing was never completed and the program bombed even in beta test. Maybe the "Magic Negro" thought he could wave his wand and it would be done!?
“Inexplicable”? Oh, I really wouldn’t think so at all. Wouldn’t it be great if we had a group of people empowered to find out what the explanation might be? Who could research things, ask tough questions, display professional skepticism, ferret out the truth? We could call them...oh, I don’t know, how about “journalists”?
If you had mandated that he had to sign up by himself, with no aides helping him...as a regular citizen, and he couldn’t travel on Air Force One until he achieved that....it would have created an interesting episode.
Had a family come into our office this past week. They were being dropped from their insurance and trying to get their flu shots in under the wire.
They admitted they were MORONIC enough to vote for Obama, and now they’re seriously upset that all this is happening.
They’re also lamenting that Fairfax County schools system is some 30 million dollars in debt. Hmmmm, wonder why ....if you allow Democrats to control and run your county, as well as import enough illegals into your county to break the system, you do tend to go broke.
I don’t We have some really seriously stupid and easily led people on our hands in this country. They are just going to have to suffer, and suffer BAD to get it through their heads. This is JUST the beginning.
When you look at all the various incompetent authorities, who have wasted tax revenue...the only consequence in my mind is to start sending them off to some minor-league prison deal in west Texas. If you botched up your town’s budget...whether by accident or on purpose....you got to go and do time.
Gaze over at Birmingham and the waste-water treatment plant....which is big enough for a town three times the size of Birmingham. The county will never be able to repay the loan, and the city is mostly bankrupt. The guys who signed up for the mess? Walking free....no punishment.
We need to make people who run for city or county councils....fear to the extreme the possibility of screwing up.
About ten years ago out in Arizona...some VFW group got all peppey and convinced the city council to put up a eternal flame to honor GI’s. No one on the city council asked any questions. So this brick deal was put up...very artistic...big ceremony, and the flame was set.
Months passed. Around fifteen months later, the city clerk gets the big natural gas bill for the town, and it’s around thirty percent higher than expected. Doesn’t make sense. Questions are raised.
They come to note this one new connection from fifteen months prior. It’s the “flame” for the VFW guys. It’s fed off a city connection. It’s a fair chunk of money...roughly $25,000. The city can carve off library funds, park funds, and take away from various programs to cover the current bill, but they just want agree to permanently host this “flame”.
Talks come up, and the VFW is confused and upset. Naturally, they want the city to pay....because the VFW ain’t got the $25,000 a year. Reality sets in. From what I last understood on the deal....the flame is lit on special weekends....like the 4th or Memorial Day or Veteran’s day...strictly for twelve hours, then turned off. All across the US...you’ve got these eternal “flames” (JFK has one), and the bill gets passed to tax payers.
Tom Brokaw is still alive???
“...What was striking to me about that statement, “We should have been aware.” ...”
In a recent interview over the weekend, Democrat Kirsten Gillibrand said “We ALL knew”. Flat out admitted it.
It ain’t the rollout Tommie, its the entire POS law.

Doh! Oh God what I wouldn’t give to put that on my bumper. i would probably get my car smashed though being that I live in New York city, the city that just elected a hardcore blatant commie as Mayor. Yes, having one as POTUS isn’t enough. We need one as Mayor as well. Why F up things on the Federal level when you can do it locally as well?
Actually, Tom, there's a very easy explanation for anyone who's been paying attention.
Obama enjoys the title and perks of being president. He doesn't like the job of being president.
His brain, however, has been dead for a long, long time.
Do SD people still believe in him?
