Obama To Concerned Mother: "You Don't Have To Pussyfoot Around, The Rollout Was A Problem" (video)
RealClearPolitics ^ | January 31, 2014 | RealClearPolitics

During a Google+ Hangout on Friday, Rebecca Stewart, a concerned mother, aired her grievances about Obamacare asked President Obama about the flawed rollout. The woman's most pressing concern was if her 10-year-old son could continue to see his specialist.

"I know that I cannot keep my plan, which I liked, but as I'm trying to decide what to do going forward," she told the president.

Obama directed the woman to call up one of the Obamacare call centers to get her "specific question" answered. However, the woman had told the president she "spent weeks on the phone, getting confidently delivered wrong answers" and "conflicting information."

"Hopefully you'll get a good answer," he said.

The president also promised the woman that someone from the White House would get in touch with her.

Me to Obama: “No, sir. YOU are the problem. Those who kept you in power are the problem. Our problem.”

This clown is such a pimp. We’ve taken a McDonalds’ cashier and put him in charge of the world.

Wasn’t “pussyfoot around” Governor George Wallace’s stock phrase? I guess O likes the words Wallace used.

Mr. Obama, I don’t generally use profanity while talking to a woman I don’t know very well. Certainly not in the capacity of being President, but I guess that’s how you were brought up, huh? I think this was a poorly acted, quickly scripted moment. Check’s in da mail, Madame!

You insult McDonalds cashiers everywhere!

Does he mean spend hours on the phone to only talk with someone even more clueless than the jackwagon who midwifed this thing?

.........I think what “the 47%” did was more analogous to asking a 12 year old to be the Pilot of a 747 loaded full of people in a flight across the Pacific...............

we’re 62.5% home this week (sob has been in office 5 years this month)............think we’re gonna make it or are we going to crash and burn!?

you don't have to pussyfoot around, the rollout was a problem because the website wasn't working properly.

And when you get your bill and deductible you will wish they never got the website fixed.

A ‘problem’ is when your car won’t start.

An epic diaster of Titanic proportions is when you build a multi-billion dollar cruise ship and it sinks on it’s maiden voyage.

This is a TITANIC-class failure.

At a breakfast this morning, sitting at a table as a minority, during the discussion of politics in general, I had the nerve to ask what they thought of Obama.

The kids at my local McDonalds appear to be much brighter, harder-working and more motivated than Barry.

Can’t believe his answer to her question, beginning with, “hey give me a break, this is not easy, it’s complicated”.

I’m guessing she’ll end up going for a ride on Air Force One, if you know what I mean.

Yeah. Hopefully.

He should try that answer out here in the private sector. Works every time.

I think you've given Barry the Boob credit for bringing greater experience and expertise to the job than he actually does.

Like hell. He may control some knuckle-dragging, 50 IQ liberals and bamboozled Conehead neo-cons, but he sure doesn’t control a whole bunch of people I know.

I think we're the cast of Lost. We're dead but don't know it. We already crashed. That's what killed us. We're just running around pretending we're alive.

If anyone thinks that the web site "roll out" was a disaster, we haven't seen anything yet. Remember that about 80% of Americans haven't had the Obamacare steamroller go over them just yet, due to Barky's illegal changes in the law, better known by the ministry of propaganda as "waivers" or "delays in implementation," all to minimize the political fallout of the looming disaster.

Remember that only a small minority of American Citizens have been put through the ringer by Barky's folly, screwing up the healthcare of most people in order to screw up the health care of a few.

It's all about controlling the people of the United States, and attempting to gain a permanent majority in government by promising low information voters the world, and promising minorities and especially illegal aliens that they would be made the rulers of "whitey," and get his stuff. After all, it worked so well in Zimbabwe, and I seem to recall hearing that Barky admires Mugabe.

I’ll bet the liberal elite San Francisco couple got ‘special help’ too. That’s how it works in Totalitarian States. If you’ve got an ‘in’ you move to the top of the list.

In the old days no one’s money was any greener than anyone else’s.

Now it’s WHO YOU KNOW. Thuggy at best - but totally what silly nightmarish democrats want...
