Barack Obama: You can call it ‘Obamacare’ By: Jose DelReal February 17, 2014 09:38 AM EST

It may not be polling well, but President Barack Obama isn’t too worried about the Affordable Care Act’s nickname, Obamacare, or the health care law’s impact on his legacy.

“I like it. I don’t mind,” the president told former NBA star Charles Barkley in an interview that aired Sunday about the term Obamacare. “And I tell you, five years from now, when everybody’s saying, ‘Man, I’m sure glad we got health care,’ there are going to be a whole bunch of people who don’t call it Obamacare anymore because they don’t want me to get the credit.”

The president also took the opportunity to remind viewers that the deadline for coverage is March 31 and encouraged young people to enroll.

“But you don’t know what life will throw at you. And sometimes people don’t recognize, particularly young people, how important it is to have coverage until you get sick and you realize you may lose everything you have, or your parents may lose everything they have, trying to make you well

Good. I guess I can put that in my officially approved lexicon for quick-speak. It will fall right in with “Obama” [as in “I took an Obama this morning”]

This is tip of the iceberg in our house. We've had to temper it a bit as our young kids have picked up on the lingo and it doesn't always go unnoticed in public. No filter there yet...

Don't "Obama me young lady"! = Lie or BS Did you "Obama that" or did it come that way? = Screw it up The dog Obama'd in the living room! = Had an accident What are you, an Obama? = Stupid, ignorant, etc. Are you gonna Obama or actually do something about it? = Talk is cheap. Only criminals Obama banks. It's a felony for citizens. = Rob, plunder, pilfer, steal from, etc.

America could literally be in ruins and this maroon would somehow still think everything is awesome, and that he’s the greatest.

Hint, Obama. Nobody likes Obamacare, not anyone out of Congress and the WH at least. Not one person.

OK, I’ll admit to being confused. Didn’t Nancy Pelosi scold us for not calling it the “Affordable Care Act” because “Obamacare” was a pejorative term made up by right wing haters?

Bullstalin meme the Rats have been pushing for years now. "Republicans are against it because they KNOW it will be popular".

King Hussein Obama has been pushing it back and pushing it back by decree because he KNOWS it is political poison at the ballot box.

You can go ahead and call him a lying bastard. His parents weren't married before the conception and the marriage was a fraud (bigamy/polygamy, Daddy Obama already had a wife).

All this money would have been used to purchase goods. Or in the case of the stupider people...spent at casinos, in drug deals etc..

Goods means jobs and taxes for the government....and is why FULL TIME employment is important.

John Kerry was giving a speech in an African village.

After every sentence the crowd shouted Obama, Obama. And when he finished by saying America had their back the crowded screamed the loudest Obama, Obama.

When it was over Kerry was given a tour of the village. As we was walking, his escort nudged him to the side saying, careful you don't step in the Obama.

He's so narcissistic that if suicide were renamed "Obamacide" he'd applaud it because his name was on it.

It's ALL about the PERCEPTION of who he's supposed to be. THERE IS NO SUBSTANCE to this FOOL.

Love this comment:

Remember the "Obamacare.gov" web site that the administration immediately put up when the legislation passed. They kept the sight up until the delivery of the Healthcare.gov web site crashed and burned. Then the "Obamacare.gov" web site just quietly disappeared.
