Obama's Credibility Is Melting

The collapse of ObamaCare is the tip of the iceberg for the magical Obama presidency.
From the moment he emerged in the public eye with his 2004 speech at the Democratic Convention and through his astonishing defeat of the Clintons in 2008, Barack Obama's calling card has been credibility. He speaks, and enough of the world believes to keep his presidency afloat. Or used to.
All of a sudden, from Washington to Riyadh, Barack Obama's credibility is melting.
Amid the predictable collapse the past week of HealthCare.gov 's too-complex technology, not enough notice was given to Sen. Marco Rubio's statement that the chances for success on immigration reform are about dead. Why? Because, said Sen. Rubio, there is "a lack of trust" in the president's commitments.
Last weekend the diplomatic world was agog at the refusal of Saudi Arabia's King Abdullah to accept a seat on the U.N. Security Council. Global disbelief gave way fast to clear understanding: The Saudis have decided that the United States is no longer a reliable partner in Middle Eastern affairs.
Bluntly, Mr. Obama's partners are concluding that they cannot do business with him. They don't trust him. Whether it's the Saudis, the Syrian rebels, the French, the Iraqis, the unpivoted Asians or the congressional Republicans, they've all had their fill of coming up on the short end with so mercurial a U.S. president. And when that happens, the world's important business doesn't get done. It sits in a dangerous and volatile vacuum
Then there is Mr. Obama's bond with the American people, which is diminishing with the failed rollout of the Affordable Care Act. ObamaCare is the central processing unit of the Obama presidency's belief system. Now the believers are wondering why the administration suppressed knowledge of the huge program's problems when hundreds of tech workers for the project had to know this mess would happen Oct. 1.
Rather than level with the public, the government's most senior health-care official, Kathleen Sebelius, spent days spewing ludicrous and incredible happy talk about the failure, while refusing to provide basic information about its cause.

Thanks for bringing this forward. It definitely is true.
I have this picture in my brain of the scene in the Wizard of Oz where the monkeys (Harry Reid, Nancy Peelosi, et al) are flying around and creating a chaotic situation in order to confuse and capture the good guys.
And Obama is the witch that is saying "I'll get you my little one".
Then all of a sudden the bucket of water is tossed on the Obama witch & she melts into the puddle on the floor.
Obama's credibility is melting just like that.

Even the Washington Times is also posting reports about who is against Obama. This includes Oprah.
http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2013/oct/... Oprah was hoping there would be a genuine change in the atmospherics, one of her friends told me.But there hasnt been. Clearly, she is being rebuffed at the level of Michelle and Valerie. And, just as obviously, President Obama hasnt interfered on Oprahs behalf.
An adviser told the Post that Miss Winfrey also butts heads with first lady Michelle Obama, and its unlikely the media mogul will reconcile with the first family.

You don't mess with Oprah. She has way more money (and power) than the Obama's.

IMHO, the administration had one goal, get ACA passed into law.
They got that and everything else is a bump in the proverbial road, to quote President Obama. Let's face it has there ever been a software package implemented by Government that functioned 100% out the door? Minnesota still has a faulty accounting package that fails to record where the buck has stopped anywhere.
I guess the EBT system works fine, even too well with customers being able to use EBT at casinos, you know to buy bread and milk for the kids.
Once the incompetent Government workers failed to get the ACA WEB site working they simply bring in high paid consultants to make 'er work.
With links from the ACA system to IRS, HealthCare providers, Banks, Law Enforcemnt, DHS, FBI, Border Patrol, Welfare, DOJ, DOD, DEA, credit card trackers, credit agencies, Menards, Fleet Farm, Home Depot, Lowes, Target, Walmart, Kmart, SAMS, CostCO, Ace Hardware, etc..........
It's a wonder if the ACA system will every work.
I wonder if Congress has read it yet?
