Trust divide: Democrats distanced from Obama after health care debacle
Washington Times ^ | November 30, 2013

Posted on 12/01/2013 8:06:52 AM PST by cutty

A month after emerging from a government shutdown at the top of their game, many Democrats in Congress newly worried about the party’s re-election prospects are for the first time distancing themselves from President Obama after the disastrous rollout of his health care overhaul.

At issue, several Obama allies said, is a loss of trust in the president after only 106,000 people — instead of an anticipated half million — were able to buy insurance coverage the first month of the new “Obamacare” websites. In addition, some 4.2 million Americans received notices from insurers that policies Obama had promised they could keep were being canceled.

Trust divide, are you kidding me? Since when have these rats been honorable, trustworthy, patriotic, having a moral compass? Funnier than SNL on a bad night which is every night. They are thieves, scam artists, criminals, thugs and most of all feckless and spineless

I had dinner the other night with wealthy liberals. They continue to be 100% Democrats. It’s a religion. There’s no accountability required. Democrats will continue to get 40% of the vote regardless. It’s the 11% in the middle that’s up for grabs. Please, please don’t give us another RINO.

The problem is that the “progressives” have a virtual monopoly in the MSM. I know people who are fairly sensible, but they get almost all their information from the MSM. The propaganda is so overwhelming that to try to deprogram them all at once is nearly impossible. Best to find some small thing that they understand and to try to extend that to other examples.

I have been having some success lately getting some democrats into recovery

I just get them to agree with me that all politicians suck, on both parties... then I say “at least the GOP wants LESS government while the democrats want more government”

MORE GOVERNMENT is the key words to use. NO ONE wants more government *(except the true socialists)

The terms ‘’ObamaCare disaster’’ and ‘’ObamaCare debacle’’ have become as fixed in our language as other catastrophes, such as the Johnstown Flood and Hurricane Katrina.

The problem for Democrats seeking re-election is that ObamaCare is a CONTINUING catastrophe, whose victims will be piling up as long as Obama and Harry Reid refuse to repeal it, which promises to be at least as long as the 2014 elections.

Vaduz Here it is the 12 that need to get the boot.

The 12 Vulnerable Democrats (aka the Dirty Dozen) who voted for Obamacare in the Senate.

Mark Begich, Alaska
Mark Pryor, Ark
Dick Durbin, IL
Jack Reed, RI
Al Franken, Minn
Jeanne Shaheen, NH
Kay Hagan, NC
Mark Udall, CO
Mary Landrieu, LA
Tom Udall, N.M.
Jeff Merkley, Ore.
Mark Warner, VA

These twelve men and women all voted for the Patient Protection & Affordable Care Act. They are ALL up for reelection in 2014. Because of them, millions of Americans have no health insurance even if they can afford it.

Because of these twelve men and women, our government was able to pass the largest entitlement program in the last half century. In 2014, cancel their insurance plans. Send them home with a cancellation notice.

“Breaking bread with liberals? How did you keep an appetite?”

I’ve known them 25 years. He was my dentist. I don’t rise to the bait. (He generally pays and he’s not cheap.)

Besides, I use them to gage liberal attitudes. They’re perfect weathercocks and I need a clear idea of what the 40% are really thinking.
