Barack Obama, our next President

doesn't matter.

he's not a tea party idiot who just screwed the country who's going to run for reelection.

Obama's poll numbers can fall to the record Bush set and it won't matter. he's not running for reelection.

You have absolutely no knowledge of how a "indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity" contract works. Bush PRE-APPROVED CGI Federal. You really can't argue that FACT. If anyone sabotaged the project, it's a republican.
Obama named the people to manage the development and delivery of the software that was stolen, corrupted to hide the evidence it was stolen, accept stolen software as the deliverable written under the contract requirements, installed the stolen corrupted software, and are responsible for the disastrous product.

It's Obama's fault.

I used your post to substantiate this, idiot.

The execution of ObamaKare is Machiavellian, giving subjective authority to "the Secretary" to decide... everything... without any standard to comply with written into the law.

DBWriter keeps saying the same lies over and over. Classic form of spreading propaganda, if impressionable minds like the far right see the same thing often enough they reason it must be true.
DB is on the Koch brothers payroll. The difference between him and the other right wing idiots on here is that he is being supplied with volumes of phony data. Notice his 8 hour shift, its like clockwork. Notice that he never cites any credible source that would direct the other sheep to valid information. He is a paid information manipulator. It makes sense if you think about the millions that are being spent on other media by the wealthy right wingers.

Bush drive for home ownership fueled housing bubble

Bush did foresee the danger posed by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, the government-sponsored mortgage finance giants. The president spent years pushing a recalcitrant Congress to toughen regulation of the companies, but was unwilling to compromise when his former Treasury secretary wanted to cut a deal. And the regulator Bush chose to oversee them - an old school buddy - pronounced the companies sound even as they headed toward insolvency.

As early as 2006, top advisers to Bush dismissed warnings from people inside and outside the White House that housing prices were inflated and that a foreclosure crisis was looming. And when the economy deteriorated, Bush and his team misdiagnosed the reasons and scope of the downturn. As recently as February, for example, Bush was still calling it a "rough patch."

The result was a series of piecemeal policy prescriptions that lagged behind the escalating crisis.

"There is no question we did not recognize the severity of the problems," said Al Hubbard, Bush's former chief economic adviser, who left the White House in December 2007. "Had we, we would have attacked them."

Looking back, Keith Hennessey, Bush's current chief economic adviser, said he and his colleagues had done the best they could "with the information we had at the time." But Hennessey did say he regretted that the administration had not paid more heed to the dangers of easy lending practices.

And both Paulson and his predecessor, John Snow, say the housing push went too far.

"The Bush administration took a lot of pride that home ownership had reached historic highs," Snow said during an interview. "But what we forgot in the process was that it has to be done in the context of people being able to afford their house. We now realize there was a high cost."

For much of the Bush presidency, the White House was preoccupied by terrorism and war; on the economic front, its pressing concerns were cutting taxes and privatizing Social Security, a government retirement and disability benefits program. The housing market was a bright spot: Ever-rising home values kept the economy humming, as owners drew down on their equity to buy consumer goods and pack their children off to college.

Lawrence Lindsay, Bush's first chief economic adviser, said there was little impetus to raise alarms about the proliferation of easy credit that was helping Bush meet housing goals.

"No one wanted to stop that bubble," Lindsay said. "It would have conflicted with the president's own policies."

unwilling....

The critics have forgotten that the House passed a GSE reform bill in 2005 that could well have prevented the current crisis, says Mr Oxley, now vice-chairman of Nasdaq.

He fumes about the criticism of his House colleagues.“All the handwringing and bedwetting is going on without remembering how the House stepped up on this,” he says.“What did we get from the White House? We got a one-finger salute.”

The House bill, the 2005 Federal Housing Finance Reform Act, would have created a stronger regulator with new powers to increase capital at Fannie and Freddie, to limit their portfolios and to deal with the possibility of receivership.

Mr Oxley reached out to Barney Frank, then the ranking Democrat on the committee and now its chairman, to secure support on the other side of the aisle. But after winning bipartisan support in the House, where the bill passed by 331 to 90 votes, the legislation lacked a champion in the Senate and faced hostility from the Bush administration.

An Iowa City man may have the distinction as the Hawkeye State’s first Obamacare enrollee, but it didn’t come easy. Edward Voss, a computer programmer, told the Des Moines Register he had to try more than 100 times before he was ultimately able to sign into HealthCare.gov .

Voss said he didn’t know whether or not he had actually enrolled in a plan until CoOportunity Health, one of Iowa’s two carriers in the exchange, called him on Friday to congratulate him for being its first enrolled customer.

Even though he was eventually successful, Voss criticized the website for resembling one from the 1990s, saying it was one of the worst he’s seen. He recommended that the administration consider shutting the site down for at least a week in order to address the problems.“It’s “hard to fix things while you’re up and running,” he said.

This is why the vast majority hate Obamacare:

It was passed, literally, under the cloak of darkness with bribes, back room deals and pay off for votes.

The American public overwhelming opposed this mockery of health care reform.

Democrats made sleazy deals with Harry Reid to pass the bill even when they didn't like it on face value.

The American people, Democrats, Republicans and Independents would have voted for this bill without the need of a pay off if it were so good.

Democrats were bombarded at town meetings not to pass this bill prior to their going back to Congress and doing just the opposite.

Democrat Rep. Louise Slaughter:

"The Senate health care bill is not worthy of the historic vote that the House took a month ago."

Her criticisms in this CNN article are pretty scathing.

Sadly, America’s Obamacare nightmare continues.

I didn't "ignore" your post at all. This is what I said about your post on SIM:
"I gave you the FBI provision dealing with such matters to prove that Obama did not exempt Muslim institutions to which you replied with a rambling conspiracy theory about decisions on sensitive investigative matters (SIMs)being made by some secret committee that no one knows about and of which Obama must "obviously" be calling the shots. It was a ridiculous post that didn't rate a reply."
And I said there is a committee in DoJ whose membership is secret that makes all the decisions concerning SIMs, and posted multiple cases as evidence Obama prohibits spying on muslim terrorists in the United States.

If you know the membership of the committee that adjudicates SIM issues, post their names.
Or, post the name of the individual that makes those decisions. The only think you've posted is some acronym.

Tell us who ordered the Saudi suspect detained at the scene be taken away from the Boston police and whisked out of the country back to Saudi Arabia the next day.
.... NAME.

Tell us who ordered that the mosque the Boston bombers were radicalized in not be investigated for a full 4 days after the muslim terrorists were identified.
.... NAME.

Tell us how the Russian government can identify the muslim terrorists to the FBI, the muslim terrorists can re-enter the United States, the muslim terrorists can build bombs, the muslim terrorists blow up a crowd in Boston, and it takes the FBI another 4 days to identify these muslim terrorists with a thousand photos of them and the Russians specifically identified them before any of this happened.
Who obstructed that information from being used?

Views of President Barack Obama's health care law have risen slightly since August, despite the widespread technical problems associated with the launch of its online health care exchanges, according to a Gallup poll released Wednesday.

The poll finds that 45 percent of Americans generally approve of the Affordable Care Act, up from from 41 percent two months ago. Disapproval of the law, currently at 50 percent, remains roughly the same, with most of the newfound approval coming from those who were formerly undecided.

The rise in opinion was by far greatest among Democrats, 83 percent of whom now approve of the law, up 12 points since August. Support among independents rose by 4 points, to 39 percent, while support among Republicans remained steady at 11 percent.

Those aged 18 to 29 were the mostly likely to approve, with support falling among older age groups, particularly for those 65 and older.

I know you're ignorant of how things work in federal contracts procurement, so I'll explain this to you again.
Contracts do not specify who works on that contract.
The Obama administration specified who worked on that contract.
It was someone who Obama named to:
1) Plan to steal the software they were being paid to write;
2) Select the programmers who would attempt to destroy evidence of the software being stolen;
3) Approved the stolen software as being the deliverable software the contract paid to be written (and not stolen); and
4) Is responsible for the disaster the Healthcare.gov website is.
Can't you clowns come up with something besides "it's Bush's fault" just once?
Obviously, Obama being president caused this disaster.
Allow me to chime in very quickly, you are a racing lunatic! You defend the inept body with no soul or, mind to speak of titled " George W Bush." Then turn around & ridicule every misstep the person claiming up his mess makes? You must be up in age because, it's clear you suffer from a mental disease, most likely dementia, sprinkled with a dose of Alzheimer's. Probably an ex-fiction novel writer, judging by all these crazy theories you present as evidence, that wouldn't appease a judge in a small claims court. Instead of doing research, you just blurt out the first crazy thing that comes to mind, with a birther twist to fool the weak minded. Which is usually a republican. I'm not too sure you &, Carol aren't either related or married!
