Obama is trying to deny his LIES before getting skewered for them. His -"If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor"

Now he thinks at this late date and so many LIES that this can be rewrite all his previous LIES.

President Obama: you don't get to keep your doctor either. Don't say I didn't warn you.

She was appalling, I question what kind of mother she is. Did you hear her talking about her child? she had to run him to the emergency room to be treated because he took too many puffs on his inhaler.

A simple Topix/Google search reveals a 180 degree change of heart toward Obama.

In 2008 USAsince1680 was a birther and claimed the Obama's were just another corrupt Chicago politician and wife.

My guess is she figured out how to take advantage of taxpayer money to make her life easier - excuse me - more "fair" and doesn't want to give it up.

Name me one good reason why Obama should have volunteered in the military when he was perfectly willing and qualified to seek a higher education.
Name me one good reason why Obama thought he was qualified to become the President of the United States and the Commander-in-Chief of the United States military.

Just anything to prove his commitment and dedication to protect and preserve those things we hold dear as a nation out of love of country and a deep sense of putting country and its people first.

Or any significant contributions in the Illinois Senate or his two years as a junior senator in the U.S. Congress where he stood by his convictions to make a difference on behalf of all Americans for their and the nation's benefit.

Because every president has to have done something that distinguishes them as worthy and qualified to be a leader...of anyone or anything.

Simply attending Harvard and gaining a modicum of notoriety among liberal elitists in the world of academia isn't what I had in mind.

The United States ranked last when compared to six other countries -- Britain, Canada, Germany, Netherlands, Australia and New Zealand. Every other system covers all its citizens, the report noted and said the U.S. system, which leaves 46 million Americans or 15 percent of the population without health insurance, is the most unfair.

By ALAIN SHERTER / MONEYWATCH/ November 18, 2013, 5:45 AM

(MoneyWatch) Call it a "sugar high." Call it a feast for investors and a famine for savers. Call it, as Janet Yellen did last week in her Senate confirmation hearing to head the Federal Reserve, a key monetary policy lever for putting the economic recovery into higher gear. Whatever your view, it's clear financial markets still love quantitative easing, as the central bank continues to hoover up U.S. Treasury and mortgage bonds in a bid to unloose the economy's animal spirits.

Buoyed by Yellen's pledge to keep the stimulus flowing, spirited investors on Friday pushed stocks toward new milestones. Last Friday, the Standard & Poor's 500 Index, closed at 1,798 -- a mere 2 points shy of the 1,800 milestone. Meantime, the Dow Jones industrial average closed at 15,962. That was just 38 points from the 16,000 hurdle.

Yellen's turn before the Senate Banking Committee was as notable for what she didn't say as for what she did -- namely, anything remotely to do with when the Fed would start scaling back its $85 billion-a-month bond purchase program. Yellen steadfastly refused to bite when pressed by lawmakers to pinpoint when she, as the new Fed chair, would start to "taper."

Instead, she offered the kind of circular rationale for the ongoing torrent of easy money that is better at tying pesky lawmakers into rhetorical knots than in previewing Fed plans. "I believe that supporting the recovery today is the surest path to returning to a more normal approach to monetary policy," Yellen said.

Wherever you go, there you are.

Her reluctance to be hemmed in is, of course, partly tactical -- why hitch yourself to a plan before you even get the job? But it also reflects something more fundamental: For the Fed, tapering no longer poses the same threat to the economy that it did in mid-summer, when stocks recoiled at the bare mention of the word.

"Since tapering talk started, short-term interest rates remain anchored near zero along with most consumer interest rates, the stock market has continued to rise about 2 percent per month, home prices have continued to rise about 1 percent per month, credit spreads have narrowed, bank lending standards have eased slightly and the dollar has been essentially flat on a trade-weighted basis," said Bank of America Merrill Lynch analyst Ethan Harris in a research note. "Put it all together and financial conditions have eased since the Fed started talking about tapering."

In other words, there is reason to think financial markets will do just fine when the time finally comes for the central bank to withdraw its drip feed. In the meantime, the less weight Yellen and other Fed officials place on tapering as they communicate with investors, the less it will hurt when the needle slides out.

This week's key economic releases include the minutes from the Fed's latest policy meeting and October retail sales, which could show damage from last month's government shutdown.

So, what is your take on the following statement made by Obama on the Affordable Care Act?
"Abortions will not be covered in the Pre-existing Condition Insurance Plan except in the cases of rape or incest, or where the life of the woman would be endangered.”
You do realize the ACA maintains the status quo on abortion policy and does not shift federal abortion policy in either a pro-life or pro-choice direction don't you? Why should you and yours have the right to dictate what someone does with their body?
Under the ACA, "Enrollees are Guaranteed Access to Varied Coverage in the Exchanges. The Secretary must ensure that in each Exchange, there is at least one plan available that covers abortions
beyond those allowed by Hyde and at least one plan that does not cover abortions beyond those permitted by Hyde."
http://www.dpc.senate.gov/healthreformbill/he...
The law prohibits use of its new federal tax subsidies to pay for abortions, except where they can otherwise be covered by federal funds.

..."except where they can otherwise be covered by federal funds."

You said it yourself. But who do you think pays for the status quo and federal funds to maintain the status quo?

Where is the fat little pig now? oh that's right:the Dixie Chicks plunged off a cliff. And why was that? because the American people did not support them. Simple economics pushed by freedom of choice and freedom of speech.

I was there. I did three tours and still serve our nation proudly. My brother died in Phantom Fury. Do not tell me what I can and cannot say about the last President. You are like the lifelong smoker who blames the doctor for his cancer.

Grow up. If you don't like our President, feel free to move away. Maybe China is more to your liking. I hear that they love it when people whine about the leadership.

If it helps put things into perspective, every liberal on here imagine a black Glen Beck as the President of the United States.

They don't come much more far rightwing than Beck.

If he were black, would all of you be racists?

Perspective - 1. particular evaluation of a situation or facts, especially from one person's point of view.

Just thought some liberals needed to grasp perspective from another's point of view.

What exactly do you have against making people pay for their medical insurance? That Republicant duplicity is on display again.

If a cardiac or cancer patient can afford to buy insurance but cannot because of a pre-existing condition, would you rather that they receive federal assistance?
