Skip to comments.Bill Clinton: Damage to Democrats over Obamacare rollout failure will be ‘minimal’
Posted on 12/03/2013 4:10:00 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet
Former President Bill Clinton, who prodded President Obama last month to keep his promises on Obamacare, said Tuesday that the political damage for Democrats from the flawed law will be minimal.
I believe that if the computer problems are all fixed, and its up and running by and healthy in the next several weeks, I think that the damage will be minimal, Mr. Clinton told interviewer Jorge Ramos of Fusion. Its getting better. I think itll be fixed by in the next few weeks. If its worked through, I think within four or five months people will be talking about something entirely differently.(continued)

No Monica. Nobody will find out.
Americans will not be fooled by a Potemkin web site.
Whistling Past the Graveyard.
Said Captain Smith, April 15, 1912.
Der Schlickmeister is not stupid. If he had obambas back he would tell him the best thing to do politically. He is just shining him on hoping to capitalize on the rubble when the fallout comes.
The media will champion the President no matter how bad things get and low information voters won’t care enough to question any of the DNC talking points or the lies told concerning the failures of Obamacare.....no matter how bad it gets.
It’s not about computers, Bubba.
It’s not the website, but rather, Obamacare that is the problem, The problem is not going away, but getting worse as time passes.
He has to say this. If the damage is worse than “minimal” Hill doesn’t get elected and Daddy doesn’t get to go back home.
We will look back on the website debacle as “the easy part” of this nightmare.
If close to 100 million get kicked off of their current healthcare plans, then even the low information voters will take notice. You can't hide reality with words.
Let’s see if Hillary supports Obamacare in 2016.
The Republicans should be pounding both the website and the increased costs. Where are the ads saying?:
“Do you really want the government bureaucrats who can’t buy a working website for $600 million from a foreign company managing your healthcare?
“If you can afford your healthcare premiums now, wait until 2015!”
“If you like your doctor, you’d better get your checkup before your have an Obamacare compliant plan.”
Wouldn’t it be “sad” if he expired before she’s sworn-in?
The democrats can only keep the damage ‘minimal’ with an enabling media and a liar in the White House.
Bill Clinton continuing to give America the cigar.
He is right. Who will remember in a year; sad to say but true. And the ones that do remember wouldn’t have voted for a Demorat anyway.
People are so dying to get B.C. back in the W.H. that they will do almost anything, including electing H.R.C.
Kabar, one can hide reality with words; the American people are, as Rush first called them, “low-information voters”, and they shall so remain.
It would be really hard for the Clintons to oppose Obamacare while supporting it so publicly and she from within the administration. If it looks like it could drag her down, my prediction is they will resort to that old Clinton tactic of triangulation. She’ll pledge to tweak and fix the few things needed to make it just right.
Wordsmithing. Damage to the Democrats over Obamacare (not the rollout, but the policies) will be huge.
“”I think within four or five months people will be talking about something entirely differently””
No, Bill.....They will be talking about something entirely different OR they will be talking about THIS entirely differently. I thought the guy was supposed to be a genius. Or is that his wife? Gosh - it’s so difficult to keep this straight when all democrats sent to DC are all supposed to be geniuses....
“You better put some ice on that.”
The Bill Clinton prescription for being raped by Obamacare.
The faulty website is the only thing temporarily saving their collective butts.
Once it works, and everybody actually learns their specific cost for insurance, the public will go through the roof.
We won't mention Benghazi... we'll give you a pass on it.
You run girl!
Clinton is an azz hat
Exactly!..Just because u cant add or subtract doesn't mean you're not a whiz at long division.......Or does it?
Agree -- compared to the damage from everything else about Obamacare, the damage from the website fiasco will be minimal.
Well, Captain Smith would have said that at around 11:30 p.m. on April 14, 1912. However, at around 2:00 a.m. on April 15, 1912 Captain Smith would have been saying...”Oh, shit!”
This is why they call him ‘Slick’.
He’s giving Obama the green light to double down on the very thing that will destroy his legacy, and the careers of every Dem politician who supported him.
Slick walks away grinning as his enemies go up in flames.
Four or five months. This spring. Seven years. Next month. Who knows?
The important thing is that we must throw money into this black hole.
You heard it first from Slick Willy .... and if you can’t trust Slick Willy, what Democrat can you trust?
He is correct. And I would add, if any.
One of the things that is going unsaid is this: the ‘failure to launch’ of healthcare.gov is the best thing that could have happened for Obama. If the site had worked properly and millions of people could have seen what their options for coverage are and the cost, we would be in a state of civil revolt by now.
Not for me.
The worst is yet to come.
Yup. there may or may not be some short term electoral consequences (to be fully muted and in fact inverted if the GOP goes along with amnesty, which could lead to a Dem rout in 2014) but the long term prospectus on unending gubmint growth appears unchallenged. I cannot recall one mass gubmint gimmedat policy that has been repealed. Ever.
And this malignancy will not be the first. It is with us until the collapse.
Why in the world would he want to go home?

Obama can’t hide reality when the low information voter is personally affected by Obamacare.
Agree, She will say that some fixes need to be made, but Obamacare is the law of the land.
Depends on the meaning of minimal
