Can Obama dig himself out after the Obamacare plummet?
CBC website (Canadian Broadcasting Corporation) ^ | 2014-01-03 | Neil MacDonald

It would probably be difficult, outside San Francisco, to find a more doggedly liberal place in America than the Washington suburb of Bethesda.

People there are affluent, and more educated than in any other U.S. city of comparable size: the vast majority have university diplomas, and half of them hold master's degrees or Ph.Ds.

The place is an absolute hive of Toyota Priuses and artisanal shops. And the very name Bethesda has, for many U.S. conservatives, come to stand for all they hold in contempt: elitist, climate-change-believing, gun-restricting, abortion-allowing, anti-hunting (the place crawls with white-tailed deer), pro-big-government Obama-lovers.

Yet, at the moment, Barack Obama is clearly losing Bethesda. Just as he is losing the rest of America as his fifth year in office draws to a close....

When the CBC (One of the most liberal propaganda machines on earth) has finally figured out that Obamacare is a bust... It's the equivalent of the 'Fat Lady Singing'.

Hussein is, after all, the guy who claimed that someone can “dig the way out” of a hole!

I’m more concerned about America and Americans than Obama.

The only thing going for obama was that all there was to judge him by was his words. And the left loved his words. Eventually, the events and their impact on people speak louder than the words. Once people start to question a liar, he’s done.

He’s a “dead president” walking at this point. It will only get worse. And as with the french revolution, his greatest detractors and most dangerous opponents will be his former followers.

The rest of us will sit back and enjoy the popcorn.

Isn’t it interesting, that despite their failure to enroll enough people in Obamacare to make it even half way financially viable, they still push it... knowing full well that it is destined to collapse under it’s own weight.

Maybe they know it will not survive in the courts, and would rather see it go down that way rather than admit they were wrong in the first place.

Maybe they never intended for it to succeed in the way it was advertised, but rather wreak further havoc on the already desperate economy.

It’s simply mind-boggling that regardless of why, the democrats refuse to even apply the brakes... Do they know something we do not?

Do they know something that Obama does not???
Obama himself seems to be trying to use his unconstitutional dictator authority to curb the effects...
Why aren’t the democrats demanding more brakes?

Obamacare is still the law. RATS expect the RINOs to bail them out with ever greater spending. THE GOAL IS SOCIALIZED MEDICINE. Other than the Tea Party, I see no political resistance whatsoever.

Because Obamacare is the law, he is winning. Everything else is noise. Obama is arguably the most successful president in American history in IMPLEMENTING HIS AGENDA. Reagan had to compromise. Clinton had to compromise. Obama refuses to compromise!

He is succeeding beyond his wildest dreams in destroying our culture, our economy, our political system, and our health care. The man hates America and he is collapsing it faster than anyone apparently realizes.

The US House of Representatives is analogous to a Police Force - - - they “arrest” the perp by Impeaching the perp.

The US Senate is analogous to a Jury of Peers who have the power to throw the Impeached perp off of the taxpayer gravy train, take away his residence, ban him from building a Library paid for by us, and ban him from using his personal Corporate Jet, Air Force One.

Most RINO Americans want to wait, Wait, WAIT! until they control the House, the Senate and the White House.

To those weak-kneeded summer soldier “patriots” I say “Enjoy the Obamanation that you have tolerated since January, 2009.”

Thus, we Summer Soldier Conservatives continue to tolerate a wimpy, hand-wringing, sobbing crybaby Speaker of the House Boehner as our sorry chief policeman.

“Oh, if only my best friends across the aisle would just play nicey nice - - - “ is the perfect quote that fire-in-the-belly Socialist-Democrats love to hear from their doormat, cowardly, Obamacrat RINOs.

Yes indeed, as long as we WAIT for things to be PERFECT we will never attack those whose goal is to destroy the US Constitution.

Suck it up you sorry House RINOs, and replace John “Benghazi Coverup” Boehner with SC Rep Trey Gowdey, or SC Rep Joe Wilson.

Without a fire-in-the-belly Republican Speaker of the House, Obamacrat RINOs will continue to cave in to “their best friends across the aisle,” to the unbridled glee of every Democrat voter in America!

Fight or go home, House RINOs.

FIGHT or we will send you home!

I don’t think so. Not to use hyperbole, but I see it sort of as this is January of 1945, Obama is Hitler and we are germany. No, it won’t go down the same way, obviously. But as Obama and the dems go, so goes the nation.

And to change analogies, think of the illegal aliens as the huns that took down Rome, sort of. And the reason the Huns won was that Rome was already a rotten shell when they came knocking.

While lies ahead because of ObamaCare will make 2013 look like to good old days.

The trouble hasn't really started yet!

"Can Obama dig himself out after the Obamacare plummet? ..."

.... He doesn't have to do dig himself out .... the Democrat Party and the the state run media will work as a strongly cohesive team to clean up the reputation of the Prez. The democrats don't have to worry about such things ..... they know their team will always bail them out.

.... On the other hand .... the GOP doesn't have a team.

If obozo were someone else, say, Ronald Reagan, he could pull out of the dive easily in the time he has left. He is however The Clown President so, no, he’s gonna’ crash.

obozo is the denouement. The left successfully prepared the stage with 45 years of PC. America has been asleep for a long time.

The Democrats will not let it collapse. They will do whatever is necessary to preserve it, even if it morphs into something else.

What really infuriates me are all the articles by conservative commentators that assume Obama is failing—because they apply their own assumptions in evaluating Obama. If we do not realize what his reall agenda is, we have no hope of EVER defeating him.

ODork's incompetents built a house on a sand foundation. The have painted the foundation several times, but most competent adults know that CAN'T possibly work.

So... Not just no!
But
HELL NO!!

You are right. There is a significant contingent of the GOP that wants to mend it, not end it.
