Oh yeah, sure! Oblamo and his remaining supporter have backed themselve in a corner. The economy sucks, signature legislation sucks even more and now he is being held accountable. And the libs keep finding reasons why it's not that bad.
Oblamo is at the lowest approval ratings of his Presidency, an overwhelming majority believe Oblamocare is bad for the country and believe under his direction the country is heading in the wrong direction.
His second term lasted 9 months as effective Oct1 he became a lame duck.
News flash: The majority of Americans DO NOT believe Obamacare is bad for the country and they do not want to see it repealed.

At least 15% of those who "oppose Obamacare" oppose it because it doesn't go far enough to reform health care. They do not want it repealed. It will never be repealed.

Keep drinking the Koolaid. Three more years!!!

Keep blaming the media.
Bush declared Bin Laden irrelevant & made up a story about Iraq getting a nuclear weapon to invade Iraq & got over 4,000 soldiers killed. He pushed through multiple tax cuts favoring the wealthy during a time of war creating massive debt as he took us from a balanced budget to the worst recession in 80 years. Throw in a housing collapse & a near financial meltdown & gee whiz, it must be the media.
Obama has been bringing us back despite Republican efforts to keep us down.
The ACA is a good law that will work. This is why it scares the Hell out of Republicans. The website is just a website & when the dust clears, people will see that it actually does work.
The media sees through all the fake scandals - "'OMG OMG Benhazi" "OMG OMG the IRS"
There is nothing in the ACA that said you could not keep your policy or your doctor.
The more you & your ilk play up that aspect, the more votes it will cost you.
They really are cutting their own throats. By twisting the polling numbers to make it look like the "majority" are against the ACA, they are only angering the true "majority" who stand don't want to see it repealed.

In the headlines this morning:

"Think 2013 was bad for health politics?"

(A lot of questions in 2014 about who is covered and who isn't.)

"One fear is that people will think they signed up for coverage even if they didn’t take the final and vital step of paying the first premium, and will seek care. Another problem: The system has been passing along erroneous information to insurers, something the Health and Human Services Department has been racing to fix."

Obamacare had lots of sign-ups on deadline day

Charles Gaba has been going to painstaking efforts to show the trajectory of health law sign-ups over the past three months. His graph (which is better viewed here, on his Web site) gives a helpful visual sense of what the last month has looked like for health-care enrollment. This uses all available data, including the monthly, federal reports and more up-to-date state data, too.

By Gaba's count, we're at 5.75 million sign-ups, between those who have enrolled in private plans and those who have qualified for the Medicaid program. The balance still tips toward public plan enrollments, but, as the chart cautions, this is still preliminary data. If we do see a similar December enrollment spike among the federally run state markets, that will be a pretty quick turn-around from October's dismal showing. If not, though, that's going to make the next three months of open enrollment, which runs until March 31, all the more crucial.

White Guy Accused Of Filming 'Knockout Game' Attack On Black Man Gets Charged With Hate Crime

A 27-year-old Texas man was arrested by federal authorities on Thursday for allegedly filming himself punching a 79-year-old African-American man and breaking his jaw. Authorities say the assailant was attempting to see whether a "knockout" attack on a black victim would be nationally televised.

Conrad Alvin Barrett was arrested and accused of punching the unnamed victim last month and filming the assault. Barrett allegedly showed the video to a man outside a restaurant who he didn't realize was an off-duty investigator. In the video, the attacker approaches the elderly African-American man, asks him "How's it going, man?" and proceeds to punch him before laughing, saying "knockout" and fleeing in a vehicle. Barett has been charged with a hate crime.

According to the federal complaint, in another video found on his cell phone, Barrett allegedly says that African-Americans "haven't fully experienced the blessing of evolution" and uses the n-word. The complaint alleges Barrett said he had been trying to get up the "courage" to play the knockout game for a week.

He draws crowds like a rock star, was named “Person of the Year” by Time as well as a gay rights magazine, and drew the ire of Rush Limbaugh for his criticism of “trickle-down” economics. Pope Francis has dramatically shifted the message and tone of the Vatican in the last nine months, and he’s forcing Republicans in Washington to reassess their relationship with the Catholic church.
For years, Catholic leaders’ staunch and very public opposition to abortion, gay marriage and the contraception-related provisions of Obamacare made them natural allies for the GOP. But Francis has scrambled the equation by de-emphasizing hot-button social issues, warning against unchecked capitalism and pushing a populist message at odds with the core of the anti-spending, anti-big government Republican Party.

He really is shaking things up at the Vatican. Removing conservative Cardinal Raymond L. Burke, who has advocated for pro-choice Catholics to be denied Communion, was a smart move.

Good bye to Limbaugh's “prosperity Jesus” as Anthea Butler, professor of Religious Studies at the University of Pennsylvania, calls it.... "the message that if you’re not rich, you don’t have the blessings of God." It's going to be an interesting ride.

Pope Francis:

“Today everything comes under the laws of competition and the survival of the fittest, where the powerful feed upon the powerless… Human beings are themselves considered consumer goods to be used and then discarded.”

No one is twisting the poll numbers. All polls show the same majority against the ACA - some more than others by a significant margin.

The same majority who were against it before it passed on a strictly partisan vote.
