"I was all for Obamacare until I found out I was paying for it..."

The LA Times, well-known for its liberal leanings, has that quote, by one of the mass-fooled.


The Washington Post columnist Kathleen Parker has this remark: "The lights are flickering in the city on the hill, and our ship of state is foundering."


And from another Washington Post columnist, Richard Cohen, who is openly an Obama-phile, this:

The Obama administration has botched Syria and, in the Saudi (and Israeli) view, cannot be trusted to deal firmly with Iran. An erratic presidency has made the world a bit less safe.

History will someday provide perspective and say, possibly, that Syria and Obamacare did not matter. I doubt it. At the least, they help validate the once-frivolous Republican charges of incompetence.
...
Something went wrong [with ObamaCare]. People could not sign up. Why? Not sure. Who's at fault? Apparently no one. An act of God. Something that could never have been foreseen. Another president might have had someone in the White House calling every day -- no, twice a day -- to make sure the program was going to work. But no, it was a shock to everyone, and when the White House rolled out its gigantic cake -- maestro, some music please -- no one jumped out.

Pathetic.


The San Francisco Chronicle, also a far-left-biased paper: "But if liberals have to fish for a 1989 Heritage Foundation policy paper that had no Republican support in 2008, 2009 or 2012 to establish Republican paternity [ownership, i.e., blame] for the Affordable Care Act, that tells you one thing: They think Obamacare won't work." (in an Oct.27, 2013 syndicated column by Debra Saunders)


NBC reported this: Obama White House Knew Obamacare Would Terminate Half Of Individual Plans:

"Four sources deeply involved in the Affordable Care Act tell NBC NEWS that 50 to 75 percent of the 14 million consumers who buy their insurance individually can expect to receive a “cancellation” letter or the equivalent over the next year because their existing policies don’t meet the standards mandated by the new health care law. One expert predicts that number could reach as high as 80 percent. And all say that many of those forced to buy pricier new policies will experience “sticker shock.”


"Had Obamacare been created as a private enterprise with Obama as CEO, it wouldn’t have lasted a week. Not only would the stumbling company have been put out of business, so would its incompetent CEO. And we’d all—well, most of us—be better off."


And NOW, as if all that isn't bad (i.e., true) enough, CBS News 60 Minutes is finally shining the light on Benghazi like it should have, over a year ago.

And in response to that 60 Minutes airing, the my-leg-tingles Chris Matthews finally mans up and starts asking the same. exact. questions. that FOX News and we have been asking since September 11, 2012, over 13 months ago:

Matthews, in that clip: "We had lots of coverage of people when we killed bin Laden, we had a lot of coverage of that. There's a lot of photographers around during that. How come this is shrouded in mystery? What I can't understand is all these months later we're still trying to figure out what happened. I just want to know, as an American, what happened? Did everybody do what they were supposed to do? Did everybody make a really good desperate effort to save the lives of our people over there or didn't they? If they didn't, that's a problem, but I want an answer."
Better late than never, Matthews, but it's about damn time. Welcome to the outrage. Why didn't you pay attention when it was FOX News telling you all these truths?

And where are all the people who should now be calling you, and the WaPo columnists, and CBS News, and 60 Minutes, and NBC News, and the SF Chronicle, and all the Democrat politicians "breaking ranks", calling all of YOU "racist"?

And now we know that people who eventually talked to 60 Minutes about Benghazi were scared to talk, because of outright fear of reprisals from the Obama White House:

[There was] An extraordinary amount of pressure on the people involved not to talk. And an extraordinary amount of pressure on anyone in the government--the military side, the political side--not to say anything outside of official channels. I mean, to the point where people that we've known for years would call people who were no longer in their positions, and they would call someone else that we knew, and messages would be delivered like that because there couldn't be any trail linking you directly to our story.

The administration is cracking down so hard on leakers: no one wants to put anything in writing, everybody is scared to talk over the phone, people want to meet in person--all of that makes it that much harder to investigate anything.

Why, oh, why am I not surprised. But now, the truth is all coming out to the other half of the country, that both Obama and Hillary are to blame, for not shoring up the security beforehand when repeatedly asked to do so, and for not sending in the Cavalry during the attack, as Chris Matthews put it, when they still had time.

"I would now like to say a special word to women who have had an abortion...[many are] aware of the many factors which may have influenced your decision, and [do] not doubt that it was a painful and even shattering decision. The wound in your heart may not yet have healed. Certainly what happened was and remains terribly wrong. But do not give in to discouragement and do not lose hope. Try rather to understand what happened and face it honestly. If you have not already done so, give yourselves over with humility and trust to repentance. The Father of mercies is ready to give you his forgiveness and his peace...You will come to understand that nothing is definitively lost and you will also be able to ask forgiveness from your child..."

The writings expressed herein are protected expression by virtue of the First Amendment of the United States of America and by the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, in particular Articles 18 and 19, signed by the U.S.A. in 1948:

1) The First Amendment: "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances."

"The Free Exercise Clause reserves the right of American citizens to accept any religious belief and engage in religious rituals. The wording in the free-exercise clauses of state constitutions that religious “[o]pinion, expression of opinion, and practice were all expressly protected” by the Free Exercise Clause.[1] The clause protects not just religious beliefs but actions made on behalf of those beliefs. More importantly, the wording of state constitutions suggest that “free exercise envisions religiously compelled exemptions from at least some generally applicable laws.”[2] The Free Exercise Clause not only protects religious belief and expression; it also seems to allow for violation of laws, as long as that violation is made for religious reasons."

2) Article 18 of the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights, signed by the U.S.A. in 1948, states: "Everyone has the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion; this right includes freedom to change his religion or belief, and freedom, either alone or in community with others and in public or private, to manifest his religion or belief in teaching, practice, worship and observance."

3) Article 19 of the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights: "Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers."
