My ears were ringing kept hearing WOW How did it all go wrong? Well, CBS throws out another figure that explains all: support for the Affordable Care Act has slumped to another historic low of 31 per cent. That's a drop of 12 per cent since last month. The chaotic roll out has taken its toll on both the policy and the creative genius behind it. The website that crashes when you just look at it. The discovery that millions faced losing their existing healthcare plans even though the President insisted that they wouldn't. All of this incompetence and misleading leadership has added up. Barack Obama's one genuine policy achievement is starting to look like a dud. Perhaps the midterm elections won't return the House to the Democrats after all.

In the long run, this makes a nonsense of the view of Obama as a great president in the making. This week the US is celebrating a couple of anniversaries that inform its national mythology: the delivery of the Gettysburg address and the assassination of JFK. Obama has often been compared to JFK, and Obama has often encouraged others to compare him to Abraham Lincoln. But while those men each left a laudable, reformist impact upon their country (Lincoln freeing the slaves, JFK putting civil rights legislation into motion), Obama's record will probably be less "transformative" and more "embarrassing". Oh, there's the important fact that he was the first African-American to ever hold the office of the presidency. But on the domestic front there has been high spending and millions put on food stamps, while in international affairs we have witnessed a mix of withdrawal of leadership and aggressive drone warfare that has killed thousands. Economically, diplomatically and morally – it's been a messy five years. The public, it would appear, is finally waking up to its consequences.

They gon be Mad with everyone because they didnt LIE to themselves saying Obaaaaaama is the GREATESTS he is as great as both Bushes one said READ MY LIPS NO NEW TAXES, and the other Oh well Obaaaama is BUSH 3 get you some a that

What the heck? Dems taking a swipe at Biden for the admin's decision to keep him under wraps during the Obamacare disaster?

Yeah, we should expand the immigration program and just ignore what is currently happening with the flawed refugee vetting program.

Don't forget about yard sales. I once picked up a souvenir Bakelite ash tray from the 1939 New York World's Fair for 75 cents.
Found some really good bargains and also sold a few myself at garage sales.

It's how some people make a pretty good living. Finding treasures at garage sales, thrift stores and antique shops and reselling them on EBay. My brother-in-law does that on the side but you really have to do your homework and know what to look for.
