That's my point. It will be fully implemented before the 2016 campaigns, if this is going to be such a disaster the GOP should sweep 2016 then they can dismantle it all they want in 2017.
I'm beginning to suspect that what sounds exactly like a baseless smear campaign is exactly that.
Obama has already delayed portions of ObamaKKKare in an attempt to influence the 2014 elections.

One other point.

Delay of the employer mandate makes it impossible to determine eligibility for subsidies under the individual mandate, an open invitation to fraud.

<quoted text>And yet this Democrat hasn't been arrested-or even fired-what is the matter with California?
Los Angeles attorney Gloria Allred held a press conference Tuesday with another accuser ó this one a nurse who claims Filner tried to get affection from her in exchange for his help in getting treatment for a wounded former Marine. She is one of more than ten women who have come forward with accusations against Filner.
The path to removing Filner became more clear this week after the failure of an effort to undermine the recall campaign. Can you imagine Sonic? a democrat trying to rape a woman so one of our brave soldiers could get treated? how sick is that?
Filner may not have done anything illegal with respect to these women, although the FBI is reportedly investigating him for unrelated financial irregularities, including extortion of developers.

Filner is just a lecher, a grabber, a hugger, and a pig.

Well, then conservatives better not look to Texas--two more Texas state troopers were caught raping two women in a car that they stopped for throwing a cigarette out the window. The Texas troopers called it 'legal search & seizure'. http://www.dailykos.com/story/2013/08/04/1228... #

I'm not pleased at all. We only have the word of those who ordered the executions that they were justified. I wouldn't expect them to come out and say "Well, we were pretty sure these were bad guys but we can't be run the risk of putting them on trial 'cause we may be wrong."
For the same reason I also have no assurance that OBL was really a terrorist mastermind and not just some wealthy kook with visions of grandeur being taken advantage of by real terrorist masterminds.
Clinton didn't take him when he had opportunities because he had no legal grounds by which to take him.
That is possible and would make it even worse.

Seems that OBL could have easily been taken alive.

But if they are all dead, we will never know.

<quoted text>All Preibus is doing by threatening to pull out of debates sponsored by NBC and CNN is threatening that the GOP will finally stop being the Party of stupid. Anyone who is smart enough to be Chairman of the Republican National Committee ought to be smart enough to see that the way to defeat the Democrats is to avoid letting liberals like Anderson Cooper, James Lehrer, Martha Raddatz, Candy Crowley and Robert Schieffer set the Republican agenda for the 2016 presidential election through the questions they ask during the primary season debates. Finally the GOP is listening to the conservatives. There isn't any need to appease liberals, we have nothing in common with them. I repeat: NOTHING.
Galt agrees completely.

No debates are better than rigged debates, such as the conspiracy between Obama and Piggy Crowley.

A shooter in a clock tower is taken out by SWAT. Why wasn't the shoter arrested & brought to trial?
A US Citizen sits in Yemen sending bombers to kill Americans. Why isn't he captured & brought to trial.
What is the difference?
If we knew where a terrorist camp was that had several leaders including a US citizen terrorist leader & send in helicopters or a scud, would that be OK with you?
I don't get it.
What's the difference if this American Terrorist charged a US installation as part of an attack or if he hid in the mountains with a sniper rifle or commanding others to attack us.
Dumbass Dave is on double secret probation and will never see the drone coming.

I'm hoping that they bring back Donald Trump and so do all Americans who don't want him to win ,but just run on the GOP ticket. Hillary would be a shoo-in and since she already knows her way around the White House , as President she would jump right to work .

Just because people are disappointed in the president doesn't mean they are disappointed in the Democratic party. People haven't forgotten the Republican party took this country to the brink of bankruptcy and won't be anxious to go down that road again.

BS, it was that way when I was in in the 70's and 80's and it was that way before WWII. Soldiers at Schofield Barracks were not armed when they came under attack by the Japanese.
Under a 1993 order passed by then-President Bill Clinton, carrying a private firearm on a military base was banned on military bases in the United States. Individuals could privately own firearms if they lived on base, but those firearms could not be carried on the person while on base. This order was revised on Pentagon orders in 2010, and now specifically requires that every private gun brought onto base be registered with the Military Police. The rules also require harsher enforcement of rules forbidding the carrying of private firearms on base.
* If George Washington had learned that soldiers under his command had died from a turncoat attack within an American Fort ó not because arms werenít available for his men to defend themselves but because an American officer didnít trust American soldiers to bear arms ó Iím fairly certain that American officer would have been summarily executed by the same firing squad as the turncoat.

I'm sure we shared our "intel" with them. Why not the Spanish Embassy in Yemen?
Spain's embassy was to close Monday and Tuesday, maybe it reopened maybe not.

There is a lot of intel bouncing around that indicates a growing settlement of Al Qaeda and Al Qaeda affiliates along the Southern coast of Yemen in the remote city of Al Majalah. That's where our drone and other strikes are centered.

Yemen's military either can't or won't control that area.

Maybe the Trooper was gay. Did you notice it was a big dyke woman?
I had a bitch try to do that to me in the Orlando Airport-checking me for weapons-believe me-for no reason. I could barely get panties on underneath that size 4 dress.

I think that Congress ought to pass a law that if any republican gets caught running for re-election in 2016(3 years away) to avoid working in Washington D C with President Obama on the country's business then President Barack Obama gets a 4 -Year Extension(a Third Term as U S President) It is the only fair thing to do since the county owes President Barack Obama for allowing the republican-controlled House to waste four more years.

Galt just hates facing bad news. He can't admit that Mitt Romney was just a terrible debater when faced with the facts. Like Romney, Galt wants to blame everything else for his own failures.
