Another great idea from a stupid racist jagoff
I know what caused the ObamaKare site to crash. It was the white racists that kept the programmers Obama used to steal the software so ignorant, they didn't know what they were doing.
Or, maybe it's the software code that's racist. The proof is in the copywhite text Obama's ignorant programmers deleted.
Or, maybe the computers were racist because they were designed by white engineers.

... you're an idiot.

He should of sent Susan Rice (credit to whomever said that.)
'Another thing Obama didn’t do at his Monday press conference was apologize for the many false statements he made during the bungled ObamaCare rollout, especially the ridiculous and often-repeated lie that Healthcare.gov was melting under unexpectedly high demand. It’s never experienced traffic greater than mid-level commercial sites handle every day of the week, and it’s still not working today, even though the traffic has decreased by an amazing ninety percent since launch day. And Obama knew the stupid thing crashed under the load of just a few hundred users during testing! None of these frauds ever seriously thought the big problem with HealthCare.gov was an amazingly large stampede of eager customers, but they said it over and over again.'

O'bama care is down because of an Anti-moslem video--sure liberals and O'bama drones would buy that.

I comprehend very well so, I come to my own conclusion on the topic, it's called philosophy, you should try it instead of claiming a republican party affiliation &, turning around & blaming Obama for division of a nation. You divided yourself by claiming republican, therefore choosing sides. What's your highest level of education again? Are you embarrassed to say you wanted your time &, money on higher learning for a lowlife? I don't need anyone's validation or level of acceptance to gauge my intelligence. It's the age of the internet. You can learn what you want to learn, it's up to the individual.

Websites crash all the time, azz hole commie.
Washington Post for an Everlasting Gobstopper of hard truth:

Days before the launch of President Obama’s online health ­insurance marketplace, government officials and contractors tested a key part of the Web site to see whether it could handle tens of thousands of consumers at the same time. It crashed after a simulation in which just a few hundred people tried to log on simultaneously.

Despite the failed test, federal health officials plowed ahead.

When the Web site went live Oct. 1, it locked up shortly after midnight as about 2,000 users attempted to complete the first step, according to two people familiar with the project.

Dear God. Healthcare.gov crashed under the burden of only a few hundred users, but they launched it anyway, and two thousand connections was enough to kill it. And they’ve been admitting the system was only designed to handle 50,000 users at most, spread across all fifty states, even though it cost half a billion dollars to create, and Obama’s propaganda has stridently insisted there were forty or fifty million uninsured in the country, plus he knew (but lied repeatedly about) the millions more who would lose their existing insurance under his scheme.

We have previously heard reports of insurance industry and tech specialists warning the Administration not to launch its bug-riddled disaster of a website, but the Post takes it up a notch by revealing that a panel of experts tried to slam on the brakes a full month before the system launched:“Screw it, launch anyway!”

Must be that "red hot" economy you mentioned yesterday.

“The Federal Reserve remains quite concerned about the overall sluggishness of the economy, preferring to take the risk of being too loose for too long as opposed to tighten prematurely,” said Mohamed El-Erian, co-chief investment officer at Pimco, which manages the world's largest mutual fund.

The article mentions the Wayne County Prosecutor and about how many people in that office worked on their own time to solve this case.

I cannot say enough about how much I admire Wayne County Prosecutor Kym L. Worthy. She's one helluva woman.

http://www.waynecounty.com/prosecutor/

She stood up the brotha Kwame after he threatened her over her investigating his corruption early on. She has volunteered her time(along with her devoted employees) to clean up the backlog of unsolved crimes despite lacking resources. She and her devoted employees also volunteered their own time to begin clearing out(and continue to do so) thousands of rape kits that languished in vacant Detroit warehouses for many years. Some women waited 20 years to finally get someone charged with raping them.

Kym L. Worthy is a saint walking amongst sinners in the Deetroit area.

If you were really to follow the contract, you would realize CGI Federal's "winning bid stretches back to 2007, when it was one of 16 companies to get certified on a $4 billion "indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity" contract for upgrading Medicare and Medicaid's systems." Under the contract, CGI Federal got a total of $678 million for various services — including the 2011 $93.7 million Healthcare.gov job.

So, technically, it's really Bush's fault!!

The Post humorously describes Obama’s loony press conference as “a consumer-friendly defense of the health care law.” Rubbish. It was a desperate hard-Left politician appropriating the language of capitalism to conceal another failure of authoritarian anti-capitalism. Obama drops language about shops full of goods, cash registers, cell-phone bills, and “products” without a shred of their honest meaning. ObamaCare is not a “shop,” the shelves are not filled with “products,” and customers are not checking out with a basket full of freely-chosen goods. Wal-Mart can’t sic the IRS on you to extract a tax/penalty if you decide not to buy something.

Hey, I'm not going to let you duck and run by changing the subject. You claimed that Obama exempted Muslims and I merely pointed out that "using your logic" what he really did was "exempt" ALL religious organizations, the media and the schools.

Like I said, we're going to meet sooner or later. You are completely incapable of providing for yourself. There will be a time when there won't be anything left to steal in your neighborhood. You'll have to expand the area you forage in to find something to steal.

I described how the decision is made to investigate SIMs, then gave examples of their criteria for selection showing obviously Obama exempts muslim institutions from his spying operations on the American people.
You seem to have run away from that post.

So, you think the only conspiracies possible are right wing conspiracies, right?

Having spent 10 years working federal contract procurement in Washington, DC, I know how people are moved around on contracts to accomodate the wishes of the client, the client always being the current administration.

You appear to be ignorant of this real world fact.
