Are you capable of comprehending how few Americans consider you teabaggers anything more than a novelty? You're just a news story to sell papers, like a two-headed cow.
If the Republicans manage to right their ship by 2014 it will be in SPITE of you morons, not BECAUSE of you. If you idiots would have let Obamacare play out and take the heat in the headlines the GOP would have been a lock to capture more seats in 2014.
God bless Ted Cruz!
And that explains the TEA Party thrashing the Democrats and RINOs in 2010.

This is worth saying again.

Every bit of money spent trying to fix the ObamaKare software problem is wasted. It can never be fixed. Obama has to go to the people he stole the software from to fix the problem. They are the only people who know where all the software bombs are.

Where did the 100 million dollars we gave Obama to write the software he stole go?

Obamacare is here to rise or fall on its own merits. You morons have tried every phony dumbass strategy possible for years to sink it, but guess what, it didn't work. You're jousting with a wind mill.
There is NOTHING you teabaggers can say or do now, you don't matter.
As soon as the programming issues are resolved we'll find out if America wants it or not.
Whine away.

Ok. Let's just look at the facts and give Obama his due credit.

Obama stole the software for ObamaKare, and stole the 100 million dollars we gave to him to write the software he stole, and now he needs another 100 million dollars to fix the software because he stole it from people who aren't as stupid as him.

Did I get all of that right?

Triumphant President Takes Victory Lap Over Huge Obamacare Success

Guy Benson



President Obama addressed the nation in the Rose Garden this afternoon to discuss the Affordable Care Act. The address was more "pep rally" than anything else, as Townhall's Guy Benson reports:

Yes, really. As you read this morning, I was expecting a some perfunctory contrition and token acceptance of responsibility from President Bystander during his Obamacare remarks in the Rose Garden today. I was wrong. The appearance was more of a pep rally, replete with upbeat promises and applauding supporters. Aides might as well have hung a large "mission accomplished" banner over Obama's head. The fact that the Obamacare websites -- a core element of the law functioning -- are in total shambles and won't be fixed for many weeks or even months were all but shrugged off as an afterthought. Be sure to stick with this clip through the very end, when one of Obama's human props actually faints right behind him. Not to worry, Obama told consumers, the law is "working well," and in some cases, even better than expected. He spent much of the speech insisting that the product itself is just fantastic. Rates are lower. Costs are down. Coverage is better. The system is "smoother" than ever. He used isolated anecdotes to "prove" these points, ignoring buckets of empirical evidence to the contrary. For good measure, he also blamed Republicans and the recent government shutdown for some of the glitches -- totally false red herrings. He emphasized that if you're one of the few (!) people who've had trouble signing up online, you're free to simply dial a 1-800 number for assistance. Thus, the President of the United States was reduced to acting as a ShamWow pitch man. Except ShamWow's phone system, um, isn't broken:

Oh, yeah. The "programming issues" are software bombs put there by the people who own the software Obama stole.
You won't be able to fix the software without them.
You might as well face that fact. It will be impossible to find all the software bombs they loaded it with to protect themselves from people like Obama who will steal their software.

No amount of money will find all the software bombs, you moron. Only the people Obama stole it from know where all of them are.

The presidency is by far a more more difficult job today then it was during the Reagan era__cable news, the internet and "modern terrorism" have changed everything.

Do I dare say we agree? This isn't some kind of a trick, is it?

Hillary actually is too old for the job. But it's not going to be a cakewalk for any president in 2016. Even if we manage to survive until then.

But each side guarding their candidates until as late as possible is absolutely true in this day and age.

I couldn't agree more. Astonishing, huh?

Didn't you learn anything in 2012? America wants to know what Republicans are FOR, we've heard you whine for years about what you're against.
We're FOR the American people and policies that are in all of our best interests - not just the party's.

We're FOR being honest with the American people even when it's not necessarily good news and we might step on our own toes.

We're not perfect. But considering the alternative...

The worst recession in 80 years, a near financial meltdown, a housing collapse in the midst of two quagmire wars had nothing to do with it.

It was all because Obama was elected.

Because they knew he would be so bad for investors.

In fact, he was so bad to stopped the market slide & what is it now?

A majority of Americans think it is bad for the country that Republicans control the House of Representatives, and even more want House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) to be replaced by another Republican, according to a CNN/ORC International poll released Monday.

Fifty-four percent think it's bad that Republicans control the House, the poll found. That's up from 43 percent in December 2012, during the last fiscal standoff. The figure is the first time a majority thought Republican control was bad for the country since CNN started asking in December 2010. Sixty-three percent of respondents want Boehner replaced, but by another Republican, which would not change GOP control of the House.

The poll is yet another sign that the government shutdown has hurt the Republican party. An NBC/WSJ poll taken during the shutdown showed that 24 percent of people approved of the party, a record low. Gallup measured another record low for the GOP, with 28 percent approving. A poll released Sunday funded by Moveon.org and conducted by the Democratic-leaning Public Policy Polling showed that incumbent Republicans trailed generic Democrats in 15 of 25 competitive House districts.

Congress as a whole has a measly 12 percent approval rating, while 86 percent disapprove, according to the CNN/ORC International poll. President Barack Obama received a 44 percent approval rating, while 52 percent said they disapprove -- a number virtually unchanged since June. Forty-four percent are more confident that Obama can handle problems facing the U.S., versus 31 percent who said they think Republicans can. Twenty-one percent said they were confident in neither.
