Obama: I need to 'win back' public's trust
Washington Examiner ^ | November 14, 2013 | Meghashyam Mali

Posted on 11/14/2013 6:49:46 PM PST by Windflier

President Obama on Thursday said he would need to “win back” the trust of the American public after the botched rollout of his health care reform law.

“I think it's legitimate for them to expect me to have to win back some credibility on this health care law,” said Obama. “That's on me."

Obama’s remarks came as he announced a fix that would allow insurers to renew health plans that fail to meet Obamacare’s requirements. Under the new health care law, millions of Americans were expected to be dropped by insurers and be forced to seek new plans often at higher costs.

The cancellations, which came despite Obama’s repeated pledge that consumers could keep their plans under the health law, coupled with the technical glitches affecting the healthcare.gov website, have hurt the president in the polls and undermined support for his signature domestic achievement.

Obama still has my brother and sister’s trust.

That’s why I don’t let’em in my house.

He’ll win back my trust (actually, he never had it) by resigning. Soon.

Fixed it.

Yes, thank you. HE gets to change the law on a whim? I thought only Kings and Dictators did that. Didn’t we have the Magna Carta and American Revolution to FIX THAT? The emperor has NO clothes, we’ve seen his butt naked and that’s that for him. Tar and feathers would be just fine.

One of the talkers said it today. This regime is completely lawless. They do whatever the hell they want, and dare anyone to raise a fuss about it.

Same here. I was mildly curious about the guy the first time I heard about him. About ten minutes later I had him pegged as a hard-core, street hustling leftist.

0bama just did exactly the same thing that James O’Keefe caught the 0bamaCare navigators doing. He told the insurance companies that they could just break the law if they want to.

The 42% need to allowed to feel the full excruciating pain of what they've enabled. They're responsible for unleashing this disaster upon their fellow citizens, and themselves. They need to suffer the consequences in order to learn a vital lesson.

Yep. He's either the most arrogant narcissist prick to ever be President, or the most delusional. This crap just can't go on. Someone's going to have to dial this boy way back. He thinks he's freaking Caesar.

This guy has now dynamited his own party. The fallout is getting worse by the day. Now you've got Democrats trying to craft plans to save their behinds in the midterms. No thanks to the 'leader' of their party.

He needs to take a lesson from Julius Caesar. You can't make enemies of the people AND both sides of Congress. Do that, and your ass is grass.

Maybe he can do that with most of the low I.Q. Dims, but the other side never trusted him to begin with, and never will.

I think the latter is part of the former and, yes, he is. IMO he jumped a purple polka-dotted shark today. Give the nation a couple of days for the shock and normalcy bias to wear off and this ought to get good.

So far no one from his own party has thrown him under the bus, the media is still giving him the best of coverage possible, he's still the pet rock of the progressives, Hollywood loves him, and they're all trying to make it look like he cares so much about this problem that he's going to fix it, legally or not.

Unless we see his popularity go below 30%, I doubt we will ever hear the roar of the crowd for this guy's job anytime soon.

Which means:

*sigh* Three. Long. Years....

I'm enjoying the schadenfreude watching the implosion of Bambicare as much as anyone, but don't think for a minute his destructive ways are going to be gone before his term is up.

Oh, it's already gotten good, but in another couple weeks, I think we'll all be bursting with optimism and good cheer.

What Obama, Pelosi, and Reid have done to the American people, is nothing short of historic. Nothing this egregious has ever been done to the people by their government before. The repercussions and fallout have only begun to rattle DC. It's going to get much, much worse, and I don't think there's a whole lot the Dems can do to stop it.

Maybe His Heinous will issue an edict that suspends all bad vibes toward him and redirects them to George Bush.
