Think you have it backwards. Obamacare was born under a strictly partisan controlled Congress and a liberal president. Conservatives were all but told to get out of the way.

As someone once said, "Power corrupts. Absolute power corrupts absolutely."

Democrats had absolute power when Republicans were not considered relevant.

Same with the shutdown. It could have been avoided had the same Democrats who are now asking for a delay had acquiesced to Republicans who asked for the same thing when they had the chance.

Obama went along with the delay after he blamed Republicans for the shutdown.

<quoted text>Sure Carol, it was the Democrats fault that a Republican run Congress did nothing to regulate mortgage brokers, mortgage backed securities or credit default swaps.

However, it was Democrats fault to threat banks with lawsuits if they did not give loans to lazy ghetto bad credit Democrats like them.

why was the government shut down again? democrats did not want the the individual mandate delay--they said All hail O'bamacare--it is perfect, it is ready to roll. Rejoice. No one is talking about the shut down and how democrats wanted it to happen. Like O'bamacare, it has backfired on them also. All hail O'bamacare--get on the train.

America cannot be destroyed unless the people of the United States no longer have confidence that they are democratically represented. Then, the United States ceases to exist.
Given the obvious massive voter fraud, and the fact that any recount is impossible because there is nothing to count, that point has almost been reached.
The Democrats are controlled by Marxist and Islamists, both lethal enemies of the United States and dedicated to the destruction of the constitutional republic. Neither Marxists nor Islamists have ever voluntarily given up any position of power and authority they managed to achieve. This has never happened in history. And, both Marxists and Islamists are well aware of that sole vulnerable position of Americans.
Anyone care to guess what the next chapter in American history will read like?

Obamas THE GREAT LIE THEORY. Simply put, the great lie theory states that if political leaders take great lies, reduce them to slogans, and unremittingly repeat them they can make people believe that "hell is heaven" and "heaven is hell."

When successfully deployed, great lies can influence all classes of people to act against common sense, common interests, and the common good, and when great lies are propagated by the rich, they can be especially effective at turning the middle class and the poor against each other. For this to occur, however, the propagators of great lies must overcome two fundamental problems.

First, they must make sure they are disseminating great lies, because ordinary lies will be recognized by the masses.

For example, many, if not most, Americans did not believe Bill Clinton's denials about having a sexual relationship with White House intern Monica Lewinsky, because people routinely lie about extramarital affairs.

Tweet Print version Font Size Send to friend Yet many, if not most, Americans obsequiously swallowed George W. Bush's lies about Iraq possessing "weapons of mass destruction," because it was difficult for them to believe a United States president would recklessly spend billions of taxpayer dollars, and callously sacrifice thousands of lives, simply so he and his draft-dodging minions could "play soldier" without risk to their own lives, and so he could further enrich his wealthy political supporters with "no-bid" rebuilding contracts, oil leases, and other lucrative spoils of war.

Second, for great lies to be successful, they have to be believed, and historically this has meant that intellectuals who possess the political, social, and historical knowledge to recognize and expose great lies must be silenced.

In dictatorships, this is usually accomplished through censorship, intimidation, imprisonment, torture, and assassination. But in so-called "democracies," the suppression of the intelligentsia usually has to be more subtle.

Are you referring to the 24 billion that teh Republicans managed to stop the government from taking out of the economy?

Where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?
You never were able to answer that question. Got an answer yet?

one of today's primary beneficiaries of the great lie theory, Barack Obama, has not hesitated to employ tactics once reserved for dictators.

Obama catapulted into the presidency on the great lie that he was a politically progressive visionary concerned about the human rights abuses, warmongering, and erosion of the Bill of Rights perpetrated by his predecessor. He promised an "open and transparent government," and a majority of the electorate believed him.

But Obama has not only failed to prosecute any of the war criminals, torturers, and murderers of the Bush administration, or any of the people who covered up their crimes, he has gone to extraordinary lengths to protect them. His administration has defended them in court and strong-armed foreign governments into not pursuing their own indictments against these criminals.

By contrast, his administration has rabidly persecuted and prosecuted courageous and conscientious individuals who dared to expose America's war crimes, violations of national and international law, tortures, and murders.

According to The Committee to Protect Journalists-an organization that normally concerns itself with abuses directed against journalists in dictatorial countries-the "[Obama] administration's war on leaks and other efforts to control information are the most aggressive ... since the Nixon administration ..." and have resulted in an "unprecedented number of prosecutions of government sources and seizures of journalists' records." (qtd. in the Associated Press, October 10, 2013).

And everyone knows what a "law-abiding" president Nixon was!

Yet again, by contrast, the Obama administration has invaded and decimated the privacy rights of millions of Americans by expanding the spying capabilities of the National Security Agency (NSA) and the powers of the FBI and CIA, despite the fact that all three of these institutions have historically acted above the law without fear of legal reprisals, particularly when promoting corrupt government interests or enhancing the profits of American corporations.

A common refrain government officials mutter to critics of these expanded powers is, "If you aren't doing anything wrong, you should have nothing to hide."

So why doesn't this refrain apply to governments too?

One reason for addressing Obama's great lies in this article is to show that instead of being the egalitarian, Nobel Peace Prize winning savior destined to restore America's moral standing in the world, Obama has reaffirmed the axiom that humans who seek and obtain power are usually undeserving of it and incapable of resisting its corrupting influence.

The second reason for addressing Obama's great lies is to dispel the proclivity of many readers to assume that being critical of one political movement or party automatically means you are supportive of the other.

If there is one recent movement in America that bluntly demonstrates how successful great lies can be, and how easily many Americans can be dumbed down to unquestioningly accept these lies, it is the tea party movement. In fact, the tea party movement has been structured on one monolithic lie: Even though it is financed and controlled by corporations and right-wing billionaires motivated by greed and selfishness, and acting to the detriment of 99% of the American population (including many of the movement's own supporters), tea party politicians have managed to dupe numerous people into believing they are supporting a grass-roots campaign fueled by the common man.
