Having to resort to the president sitting between two ferns to promote it probably wasn't a good sign it had any chance of working either.
A good product sells itself. They couldn't even get stupid ads using athletes and celebrities to convince young people they really didn't think they were that stupid to try and get them on board.
Right, only stupid people want to be insured.

What is this all about anyway? Your daughter can't afford health insurance or something?
A good product sells itself? You have be a nitwit to say that; if that's true, then why are we bombarded with advertising every single second of every day? tv, radio, newspapers, mail ads, billboards, popups, etc. You just post nonsense every single day.
Obamacare is here to stay, get with the program.

It seems Scott Brown, the once (and future?) U.S. senator, didn't have an answer when confronted with one of his fellow Republicans who has benefitted from Obamacare.

The Huffington Post flagged the Wednesday story from the Coos County Democrat. Brown had met with Herb Richardson, a New Hampshire Republican state legislator, as Brown is exploring a run for the state's U.S. Senate seat.

During the meeting at Richardson's home, Brown called Obamacare a "monstrosity." But Richardson and his wife quickly interjected, according to the Democrat, saying that the law had been "a financial lifesaver."

After being injured on the job, Richardson had been forced to live on workers compensation for a while -- a situation so costly that the couple eventually had to move out of their house. They also had to pay $1,100 a month to keep their health insurance. But now that the Richardsons have signed up for health insurance through Obamacare and qualified for a tax subsidy, they're paying $136 a month for a plan that covers both of them.

"Thank God for Obamacare!" Richardson's wife Rita said, according to the Democrat.

The Huffington Post contacted the reporter, Edith Tucker, who wrote the story. She said Brown didn't interrupt the Richardsons' praise for Obamacare and didn't react when they finished with their story.

"[Brown] did not [respond]," Tucker said. "You could be sure, if he had, I would have written about it."

Let me ask you this. If a Jew Kkkhunt is getting fkd by the donkey and a slave is paying the donkey to fk said Jew Kkkhunt, don't you think that Jew Kkkhunt owes a share. I mean you are getting fkd by both the slsve and donkey. Right.

Yes. There is a preponderance of evidence in his posts that confirm he's nothing but a troll who likes to cause discord by telling people to kill themselves. Obama's election pushed him over the edge.

In all probability, based on past performances, he gives them a rough idea of the direction he wants to go and leaves the actual route up to the writers. But, make no mistake, they KNOW how he rolls.

#1 In 2008, Al Gore boldly declared to a German audience that “the entire North ‘polarized’ cap will disappear in 5 years.”(Needless to say, that did not happen. In fact, the ice cap in the Arctic actually got larger this year.)
#2 “CO2 is the exhaling breath of our civilization, literally.… Changing that pattern requires a scope, a scale, a speed of change that is beyond what we have done in the past.”(Actually, without carbon dioxide life on earth would not exist.)
#3 “The planet has a fever. If your baby has a fever, you go to the doctor. If the doctor says you need to intervene here, you don’t say,‘Well, I read a science fiction novel that told me it’s not a problem.’ If the crib’s on fire, you don’t speculate that the baby is flame retardant. You take action.”(It sounds like what Al Gore really needs is more cowbell.)
#4 During a speech at NYU Law School in 2006, Al Gore made the following statement:“Many scientists are now warning that we are moving closer to several “tipping points” that could — within as little as 10 years — make it impossible for us to avoid irretrievable damage to the planet’s habitability for human civilization.”
#5 “Here is the truth: The Earth is round; Saddam Hussein did not attack us on 9/11; Elvis is dead; Obama was born in the United States; and the climate crisis is real.”
#6 “The interior of the earth is extremely hot – several million degrees.”(It actually peaks out at about 11,000 degrees.)
#7 “There is an air of unreality in debating these arcane points when the world is changing in such dramatic ways right in front of our eyes because of global warming.”
#8 “It would be an enormous relief if the recent attacks on the science of global warming actually indicated that we do not face an unimaginable calamity requiring large-scale, preventive measures to protect human civilization as we know it.”
#9 “The survival of the United States of America as we know it is at risk. And even more — if more should be required — the future of human civilization is at stake.”
#10 “We ought to approach this challenge [of global warming] with a sense of profound joy and gratitude: that we are the generation about which, a thousand years from now, philharmonic orchestras and poets and singers will celebrate by saying, they were the ones that found it within themselves to solve this crisis and lay the basis for a bright and optimistic human future.”
As time goes by, the scientific evidence continues to mount. It is becoming painfully evident that the theory of man-made global warming simply is not true.

Shall we see if we can recreate this situation in a more convenient form...?

Let's say... you were the lead violinist on the Titanic. The ship's going down... the water's cold, you're pretty much screwed in a big way.... everybody's screaming and they're all men... So, you launch into a rousing chorus of... Begin the Beguine... next thing you know the tuba player is making an ugly face and making noises about the choice of music...

You gotta keep your eyes on the big picture, that's all I'm sayin'...
