It was neither a surprise and we weren't involved in that war. So why didn't this administration do something to protect those people?

Best way to keep deadbeats from getting the benefit of health care without paying for it.
This idea came from the ultra conservative Heritage Foundation, maybe you should ask them the same question.
Pretty sure the conservative Heritage Foundation didn't want big government to have total control over our health care.

There was a much better way to go about this.

CBO estimated 30 million will still be uninsured under Obamacare. About the same as now without big government and the IRS involved.

Interesting fact regarding the successful Massachusetts universal health insurance law. Per Wonkblog, the Massachusetts program also got off to a slow start: just 123 people signed up in its first month.

Health care.

"Little need be said about Obamacare, an orphan now disowned by most of its parents. The purpose of this vast new entitlement was not to ensure all Americans better health care (if it had been, then pro-Obama business owners, unions, and congressional staffers would have wanted in), but instead a sort of health-care TSA bureaucracy, with more dependents, more federal workers, and higher redistributive taxes — in short, larger government."
More blather you are afraid to cite the source of.

Scandal
"Bill Clinton gave us plenty of scandals; but, as in the case of the Nixon administration, the media galvanized public attention to the danger of a sometimes lawless administration.
But whether it is the Benghazi deception, the IRS scandal, the NSA disclosures, the AP monitoring, or Fast and Furious, a new precedent has been established that the public is supposed to weigh two considerations in assessing scandal: the truth versus the damage that the truth can do to a progressive vision of a fairer America. So far the truth has lost."
Why omit the Bush Iraq scandal from your list, that cost thousands of American lives and trillions of dollars?

O'bama, as an Illinois senator, sat on Oprah's couch, he had just been elected to the Senate. He said he would not run for president. A few days later he started to run for president. You should have known, like the rest of us, that O'bama was going to lie about anything and every thing. O'bama doesn't care about you. O'bama doesn't care about America. And if he says he does...he is doing what he does best--O'bama LIES.
