Sure moron, go with a group that has a 21% approval rating. See how that works out for you.
Obama was at 38% last week, dolt. Democrats in Congress are only rated marginally higher. "Voters gave Congressional Democrats a 28 percent approval rating"

You still haven't figured out that Obama and his elite inner circle think they're the smartest ones in the room and everyone else is beneath them - including our allies.
We already know they think that about us.
You're just too blind to see it.
They may not like it but we're not going to stop__nor will they stop spying on us.

If you bother to actually look into the issue, this is what you'll discover, just like everyone else who actually looked into the issue discovered.
To look into any issue, you have to make a commitment to not be ignorant. Obama may take your Democrat voter registration card away from you if you do this.
Here is the problem with the ObamaKare website:
DataTables is free, open source software that you can download and use for whatever purpose you wish, on any and as many sites you want. It is free for you to use! DataTables is available under two licenses: GPL v2 license or a BSD (3-point) license, with which you must comply (to do this, basically keep the copyright notices in the software).
For some reason, this clown act Obama has decided to eliminate the copyright notices from the software code, setting off software bombs.
Every problem with the website was caused by Obama's "programmers" violating the copyright agreement and removing the copyright notices from the code... for some reason.
Now, why would anyone use free software, then change the code to make it appear as if they weren't using that software?
This is just part of being a pathological liar. It was important to them for ignorant people to think they are smart enough to write the code for the ObamaKare website.
The truth is, this is just another case where Al Bundy could be our president. His plan A blows up in his face, and he doesn't have a plan B.
This is not only the most incompetent administration in the history of this country, it is probably the most incompetent administration of any country in the history of civilization.
So, how much more money will it cost us to fix Barack Bundy's stupidity?
And, when will you dupes wake up?
Damn...I am still trying to grasp the moronic level charlatanism of that.

Damn...

First of all Harley Davidson is in my state of Wisconsin. Gov Walker is not raping business like liberal states. The company said it sold almost 71,000 motorcycles worldwide during the quarter, nearly 16 percent more than a year ago. Sales rose 10 percent in the Asia-Pacific region, and gained nearly 16 percent in Latin America.

Buyers responded well to Harley's new Project Rushmore line of motorcycles that was introduced on Aug. 18, Chairman and CEO Keith Wandell said in a statement. "Initial retail sales of the new Project Rushmore motorcycles sparked the largest year-over-year new model sales increase in two decades," Wandell said.

Every hoorah rah you loons put up as a model that O'bama is doing something great is nothing more than a big huge lie. Harley built that-not O'bama.

UNREAL.
The removal of the copyright description in the software is what's being reported by everyone who is actually investigating it. Nobody has offered any other technical explanation.

There is always a technical reason why a disaster like the Healthcare.gov site happens. The major news organizations have all the technical experts at their disposal, yet they are running away from any technical explanation whatsoever.
Other investigations by smaller news organizations discovered the removal of the copyright text merely by just looking at the code used and doing a routine patent search.
Being a programmer in several computer languages, I easily understood their descriptions, and the results we see are consistent with the practice of software developers to put software bombs within their programs to protect themselves against thieves.
The software bombs would cause the site to crash.
The problem with the Healthcare.gov site is it always crashes.
The Healthcare.gov code is identical to the SpryMedia code with the exception that the reference to the copyright has been removed.
This is a first-level trigger for software bombs.
There are undoubltably higher level triggers.

The best thing to do is scrap the current code and start over.

<quoted text> the open-air Memorials along with National Mall WERE NOT closed during the last government shutdown in 1995-1996. According to the Associated Press in an article from December 17, 1995:
“Tourists were free to wander the halls of the Capitol, touch the walls of the Vietnam Memorial and climb the steps of the Lincoln Memorial to read the Gettysburg Address – those and other similar sites don’t require supervision by federal employees.”
This picture below from 1995 shows how the visitors’ information center at the Lincoln Memorial was closed during the shutdown, but the public was still able to visit the site. This makes perfect sense. What the O'bama Administration did made no sense-of course Americans would expect nothing less from O'bama.
http://naturalresources.house.gov/uploadedpho...
I thought we were talking national parks.

With no one to maintain these memorials, the smart thing to do was shut them down.

The fact remains that Congress denied funding for these memorials.

Here, become informed for a change:

The Bush administration made many more enemies abroad than anyone else with his unnecessary wars torture policy and GITMO.
Obama promised he would close Gitmo. It's still open.

Obama promised he would reverse Bush's war strategies. He followed Bush's war strategies.

Obama promised to tighten privacy protections in the Patriot Act. He expanded it.

Obama promised to exclude lobbyists from his administration. He hired more than 100 lobbyists.

Obama promised Obamacare wouldn't cost one thin dime. It's going to cost millions and trillions over the next 20 years.

Obama promised we could keep our own health insurance and our own doctor. This has proved to be not true.

Obama promised to get to the bottom of three major scandals. He swept them under the rug and stonewalled the investigations.

Obama promised a transparent administration. It's the murkiest and most secretive in recent history with no one held accountable.

Obama promised to unite and bring us together. He has done everything within his power to divide and conquer us.

So I'm not sure why you would even want to bring Bush into this. He started the hunt for bin Laden almost a decade ago. Obama just took the credit. Bush got rid of a real and present danger in Iraq. Obama withdrew the troops there too soon undoing any potential progress and erasing the blood and treasure sacrificed in that country. Bush was never accused of spying on citizens and allies. Obama seems to have no problem with that.

Let's focus on the present occupier of the White House. He's got enough problems of his own and too numerous to count broken promises that pale in comparison to past presidents.

COLUMBUS, Ohio — As a Republican chairman of the House Budget Committee in the 1990s, John R. Kasich wielded a ferocious budget ax. On Monday, as Ohio’s governor, Mr. Kasich defied his party’s majorities in the state legislature to push through a multibillion dollar expansion of Medicaid under President Obama’s health care law

By a 5-2 vote, an obscure committee, the Controlling Board, which normally oversees relatively small adjustments to the state budget, accepted $2.5 billion in extra Medicaid funds from the federal government. The money, recently approved by Medicaid administrators in Washington, will provide coverage for 275,000 Ohioans who have not been eligible for the program, the Kasich administration said.

The vote was an extraordinary — and possibly illegal, critics in Mr. Kasich’s own party said — end run by the governor around the General Assembly. Mr. Kasich, who initially declared himself an opponent of the Affordable Care Act and who has declined to set up a state online health insurance marketplace, has argued all year that his sense of Christian compassion, not to mention cool economic practicality, favored extending Medicaid to poor adults and those with disabilities who do not currently qualify

With Monday’s vote, Ohio became the 25th state plus the District of Columbia to expand Medicaid, according to the Kaiser Family Foundation

REALLY STUPID? There are more countries and people that hate the USA under Obama than Bush. Worse yet, no foreign leader respects Obama as he is the laughing stock of the world.

Just look at the Syria blunder where Obama couldn't even get a small coalition together.
