Kirsten Powers: Obamacare Was Obama’s Hurricane Katrina – He’s “Never Going to Recover” (Video)
Gateway Pundit ^ | May 20, 2014 | Jim Hoft

Posted on 05/20/2014 7:41:29 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

Democratic columnist and analyst Kirsten Powers admitted tonight on The O’Reilly Factor that she did not vote for Obama twice.

Powers also said Obamacare was the president’s ‘Hurricane Katrina’ and he’ll never recover from it.

Bill O’Reilly: This VA thing. I don’t think he recovers from this. I don’t think Barack Obama recovers from this. Because it’s just enough. Critical mass was reached for whatever reason you accurately put it. Powers nailed it. He’s disengaged. He’s not engaged. He’s not explaining. He’s not problem solving. And the folks know it.

Kirsten Powers: Yeah, I agree with that. To me, Obamacare was the last straw. To me Obamacare was sort of his Hurricane Katrina. He just never really is going to be able to recover from that.

He is a ‘do nothing’ President, and finally [despite the fawning national MSM] the population is seeing the light. The truth cannot be hidden forever.

Powers converted to Christianity and spoke about it awhile back, maybe this year or late last year. She described it as Christ grabbing her and not letting go, despite how hard she wanted to be let go. I suspect she’ll be similarly dragged kicking and screaming further to the right as time goes out, especially as her leftist friends reveal their hatred of all things Christian around her as time passes.

A couple of lightweight rats debating the aspects of TOTALITARIANCARE: the UNaffordable, UNaccountable, Uncaring Act without referencing its historical underpinnings in the republic.

SHEESH.

POSOTUS wins without debate.

But Obama’s a good guy whose heart is in the right place, as O’Reilly reminds us right wing zealots and bigots ad nauseam.

As I have stated many times......the Democrat Party better wake up real fast & furious......trek down to the White House and force Obama to resign. If not....they will all be going down with him...come the Mid-Term Elections in November, 2014. It is as plain as the nose on your face!!! I know that many Democrats realize...this is their only option to prevent the implosion of the entire Democrat Party!!! Dems.....time is running out on you!!!

Obama's comportment is so much like George Washington's it's uncanny!

Can you imagine any of his predecessors, other than Bill Clinton, carrying on in that fashion?

Sorry Kirstin Babe, Katrina was a natural disaster.

Obama care is now to Dems and Obama what Iraq was to Bush and GOP in 2006.

Man made disasters that cant be shaken by the party responsible.

Except at least the GOP could point out that many Dems voted FOR Iraq, not even the most lib Republicans voted for Obamacare.

The VA scandal seriously could bring down Obama.

People died due Obama Administration malfeasance.

The VA scandal foreshadows the health care rationing that will necessarily occur with ObamaCare

If the government is unable to care for 6 million well deserving Vets, how can they take care of 320 million Americans

This scandal is one the Media has not already stonewalled and helped Obama cover up so they can jump on it without backtracking

His Truth has a way of doing that to people. I've not heard that Powers converted to Christianity -- I'm somewhat surprised --- and glad to hear it. She's always seemed to me as someone who was searching for the truth -- didn't always buy into the liberal line and seemed to not believe what she was hearing at times (and at other times, what she herself was saying.)

So I say good for her.

It is no surprise at all the entire world is testing us...like the filthy backwater Sudan getting ready to hang Meriam Yehya Ibrahim Ishag for converting from Islam to Christianity and marrying an American Christian.

I keep waiting for some Islamderthal “students” to take over an American embassy somewhere and hold 52 Americans hostage for a year or two.

How did he fail? He got socialized healthcare entrenched in the U.S., which no Democrat before came close to. He got socialized healthcare AND he got Republicans to drop all opposition to it. He should be buying lottery tickets.

Yes, of course. We have all heard that if our enemy is in the process of destroying himself, get out of the way, and let him do it. I agree with that thinking. Let them all go down in flames.

The differences are vast.

Katrina was a NATURAL DISASTER that was made worse by the OBSTRUCTION of the Mayor and the Governor, and their refusal to cooperate with D.C.

Obamacare was designed as Obama’s revenge for failure to get his single payer plan through congress.
Obamacare was DESIGNED BY OBAMA to ruin the Health Insurance and Healthcare industries.

I don’t think Obamacare was designed by the idiot in the White House. He doesn’t have the brains to put together three pages of writ, let alone the thousands of pages of sh!t that comprises O-Care. It was composed over years with the wet dreams of leftist morons all adding their utopian fantasies to the endless script.

I just have fun with them!!! I know they will never lift a finger to toss Obama into the cesspool of obscurity. So.....I really want them to do zippo!!! In that fashion....they can all drown politically in the Obama cesspool of failure!!!

Actually....looking at tonights primary results....I believe the Republicans will win the senate races in Arkansas, Oregon, Georgia, Idaho & Kentucky with relative ease!!! Of course...the Obamabots & their media buffoons don’t get it....but a strategic assessment of voter demographics, etc. are leaning toward a massive Republican sweep from local to federal!!! Shucks....the Pubbies will add12-14 seats to their current house majority, giving them a commanding 250+ house seats!!!

I have watched Kirsten Powers for several years. Mostly because she was and is pleasure to look at. I mentioned to a friend 5 or 6 years ago, that she was probably the most honest liberal I had seen in years. I do not know if she will move as far right as say Laura Ingraham, but to me it does not matter. She is still honest and more importantly, still a pleasure to look upon.

They're not going to "wake up" and the GOP will be lucky to take the Senate.

And better than them waking up, we'd all do well to never sleep.

This is existential war and there's a lot of 'tards and commies that vote.

Bunches.

I enjoy her too, and she’s really cute when gets mad when trying to defend Obama or some lib policy and knows full well she’s on weak ground. She makes her living by being a Democrat strategist or whatever, but the cognitive dissonance clearly gets to her.

He doesn’t need to “recover” to keep doing damage by executive order and administrative agency. The next three years are going to be wild, especially now that agencies like EPA, Forest Service, BLM, USDA and many others have fully equipped military branches.

In fact, having no need to recover gives him the freedom to do whatever the hell he wants.

Very interesting. Powers has changed, she's a softer, more introspective person, and she has come over the the right side..she acknowledges that obozo is a failure and will eventually crash. She must be hearing this from many of her lefty friends also, from what she said on O’Reilly’s show Tuesday night..

I seem to recall her on one of the Fox shows/panels after a holiday . . . maybe it was last Easter or Thanksgiving . . .and apparently she grew up in a non-believing home and even her Mother was surprised/tried to dissuade her as in “oh honey you don’t/can’t believe that” when she was home for the holiday . . .

But yes she is one of the few who during the last election cycle in particular that I felt was leaning to NOT voting for O the second time around although she wouldn’t come out and say as much before election day that November.

Certainly by the Governor a Democrat but the Mayor had to rush off to Dallas on important business so can't be blamed.

Funny how she’s been defending Obama and his programs on Fox for a long time—but NOW reveals she didn’t vote for him in 2012.

This has the distinct odor of a rat deserting the sinking ship.
