Bizarre Richard Simmons Obamacare Commercial Performance
Newsbusters ^ | 1/17/14 | P.J. Gladnick

So you think the Brosurance and the Pajama Boy ads for Obamacare were pretty weird? Well, to paraphrase Al Jolson, you ain't seen nothing yet!

And what you haven't seen yet is a surreal danceoff performance between Richard Simmons and a contortionist during a six hour Obamacare infomercial produced by Covered California. They were supposed to inspire young people to sign up but mostly what they did was to generate a lot of laughter...along with a bunch of dropped jaws. Perhaps "surreal" doesn't adequately describe this video (and below the fold) since it is more like a laughable rip in the space/time continuum.

It has to be all those Democrat media types using “medicinal pot” to blame for these bizarre ObamaCare ads.

Don’t view it. Once seen, it cannot be unseen.

BTW, we paid for this horror with our taxes.

AAACCCCKKKKK! What idiot thinks this will sell Obamacare to anyone? They claim it's to market to young people but, we know who they are really targeting with Richard Simmons.

There are not enough gays to keep O Care afloat. Nothing but a Ponzi scheme.

Pondering this afterthought.... does the O Care marketing manager really want to see the ACA fail? Sure seems like it to me with the way they are going about things!

To me, this is just more proof that Democrats never intended for Obama Care to work. They knew they were incapable of running anything that large, and they knew the Republicans were aware of their incompetence. The Democrats were sure the Republicans would stop them, thus leaving them without the responsibility of running something they were incapable of running but leaving them with the issue. What they didn’t realize was that the Republicans have become just as incompetent as are the Democrats.

Never forget that Democrats are Communists and Communists are ends justify the means liars. Democrats are masters of the lie, the double deal, the scam, the hustle, the rigged election, and any trick they can use to stay in power, but they aren’t capable of running a legitimate business enterprise such as our country’s health care system and they know it.

When Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, and Barry Soetoro passed Obama Care, they knew it was not only unworkable but it was unconstitutional and the Supreme Court would stop it, leaving the Democrats with the issue (“We tried to provide every American with affordable health care, and the mean old Republicans stopped us”). In the meantime, the Democrats rewarded a loyal Democrat with a billion dollar contract for a website that was never intended to come to fruition. They certainly didn’t expect John Roberts’ Supreme Court to leave them with the responsibility and not the issue.

This Republican halted health care issue was the one the Democrats intended to use to rally their base for the 2012 election and without it had to use the Trayvon Martin shooting instead. “If I had a son,” and a few rigged elections barely pulled it off for them in 2012, but they were also counting on the ACA issue for 2014 and 2016, so now what are they going to use to rally their base? Not to worry, they’ll come up with something that’ll infuriate their “low information” electorate.

No, John Roberts didn’t do the Democrats a favor when he didn’t give them an “issue” but instead gave them the responsibility for doing something they were incapable of ever doing and never intended to do in the first place.

But what do I know? I’m just a tax payer.

6 hours? Isn’t that a little bit much, esp. in this day and age of the shortened attention span? Why are these people sooooooo stupid? They seem to be even stupider than Republicans. Do they really think they are going to attract young hipsters with some warmed over Jerry Lewis style marathon, even us old farts don’t watch stuff like that anymore.

Something must be wrong with him. He was acting weirder than usual on Cavuto's show in November, too.

Posted yesterday with additional comments: Bizarre Richard Simmons Obamacare Commercial Performance

Thanks for posting again, because this needs wide distribution, just to show how utterly INSANE the pro-ObuttwipeCare folks are.

WHAT
THE
HELL?!!!!!!!

(My eyes!!....My eyes!!!.....)

"Bizarre" can not even begin to describe this "ad".

One of the comments at the website was something to the effect of: "If this is what appeals to young people, we are doomed". I quite agree.

Someone else made another post that they (Govt.) spent tax payer money on it, while our military are having their pay and benefits cut-another great point.

I would think young people would be insulted - Pajama-boy, and all the other Obamacare ads show just how little O and the democrats think of young people.

(To O and the dems-the young are mindless dependent idiots, incapable of doing anything at all.)

The article is from about 2 weeks ago-but I didn't see it until now.

I'm just so surprised more wasn't said about it, because, IMO, this is Obamacare "jumping the shark".

PROOF POSITIVE that they are so far out of touch with the masses that they think this has APPEAL.

I welcome this type of stuff. They will sink themselves faster than you can say "Oh $hit" with these type efforts.
