There's a whole lot of VERY angry people in this country right now. Barry didn't have the guts to face angry people who wouldn't want to pass up the opportunity to tell him what they think of Obamacare and having their current insurance policies yanked out from under them so that they'll have to pay double and even triple the costs they were already paying.
Ironic, isn't it? He doesn't mind BEING a lying hypocritical snake in the grass, but he can't face the possibility that somebody might actually say that to his lying face.
Such anger; lying hypocritical snake in the grass and all that.

Somewhat unbecoming, in my view.

<quoted text>I voted for a John McCain once, a'way back in the 2000 primary. Good man, war hero, scrappy senator, hewed his own line, and all that. Shoulda been slam dunk. The poor guy never stood a chance, tho', against the Atwater-styled Rove smear-machine. They slapped that old war horse around like a $2 whore. It was a sad sight to witness. You'd think there might have been a huge national back-lash at such behavior, but politics does strange things to people's "principles".
Then there was a John McCain that ran for President in 2008 - same name, totally different guy. Sounded the same sometimes, but the walk didn't match the talk. Light-years sadder than the guy before.
Sounds much like how I feel about Obama. At first I did not agree with him but respected him and even admired him. Then realized he was not a very good leader.(a pretty bad one to be honest) And now, I pity him.

Given the options presented me in 2008 and 2012, yes - I'm pleased.

Risk IS subjective, you're right, yet I cannot imagine a risk analysis being performed on an unknown candidate with nothing to base it on but a senate voting record, campaign speeches and a flimsy employment background as being considered even a medium-high risk proposition as a thoughtful recommendation for the position of POTUS/leader of the free world. His college transcripts were never revealed, no military background, no private sector business, no economic background, no foreign policy experience, no state level governing experience etc.; therefore I think the degree of risk in voting for such a person would be considered extremely high. And the unknown purely by definition, is always riskier than the known.
I agree, McCain took an unusually sharp right turn possibly at the prompting of the same campaign advisors who *discovered and marketed* Sarah Palin as his running mate but Romney was a moderate therefore although your answer was nice, I think it was only partly true. The part I think you omitted was Obama was the furtheast left candidate in the running and that's really what you wanted. If you ruled out a far right McCain and all his notable experience and you ruled out a moderate Romney and all hs notable experience I think it's fair to deduce that want you wanted was a far left candidate and nobody with an 'R' attached to his name, qualified.

McCain started running to the far right five years before he inflicted Palin on the nation.

Romney may have been a moderate at one time, but he ran even harder away from it than McCain did - and the respect I had for McCain was NEVER there. By the time Romney ran the Tea Party was in control of the House of Representatives, leading conservative Republicans around by the nose. The last thing I would even CONSIDER doing is voting for an appeaser like Romney with the debt he'd owe them.

Since you'd reached the conclusion that "want [I] wanted was a far left candidate and nobody with an 'R' attached to his name" before we started this, I have to wonder what we're doing here.

Who assigned you the task of handing out the "somewhat unbecoming" buttons? I'd like to tell whoever it was that you're not doing your job. You only hand them out to people with whom you fundamentally disagree and give your likeminded "friends" a pass even when they pass "somewhat unbecoming" and enter into the land of vulgar.

By the way, in Massachusetts Bankruptcy due to healthcare has not gone down, and anyone who has been investigating these exchanges surely can see thaT IT WONT AFFECT BANKRUPTCY'S NATIONALLY. The deductibles are high the copays are high the premiums are ridiculously high.

And anyone who thinks Obama punished or put the insurance company's in their place is just wrong. They broadened the pool, and are now recruiting for the insurance companies basically taking over their jobs in finding new clients and have put a penalty in place for those who choose not to use their services..........

I don't know. I'm hoping to hear you say that you did in fact take a very high risk voting for an unknown and you don't generally condone such voting habits or some such thing. And the fact the Obama was the furthest left senator we had, bar none, it isn't exactly a reach to surmise that's what you wanted and the rest was lip service to give the appearance of a thoughtful voter. I simply don't see how it's possible for someone to vote for the furthest left candidate on the stage and also say they ever seriously entertained the idea of crossing the aisle and voting R. That's about as likely as trying to convince me that Ted Kennedy once considered campaigning for Reagan.
Seriously Willie, you present me with a what looks like a cockeyed tale and then act surprised and offended when I share my doubts. That all by itself seems suspicious but it's a darn good strategy to put a halt to an uncomfortable conversation.

"The Obama administration’s advance knowledge about problems with the Affordable Care Act website and failure to act on them shows “a cover up of cosmic incompetence.”

Outside consulting firm McKinsey & Company warned Obama administration officials last spring of serious concerns with the development of the Healthcare.gov website, and the ability to meet the October 1 launch date.

Yet in a White House press conference last week, President Obama said,“I was not informed DIRECTLY that the website would not be working the way it was supposed to.”

Krauthammer noted President Obama chose his words carefully when saying that he was not “directly” informed.

"But what is happening here is an unraveling of the cover up," he said. "This is not a cover up of corrupt misconduct. This is a cover up of cosmic incompetence, the fact that they began to be told in March and nobody acted and nobody said."

“How much he knew we are not sure," he continued. "But this is really incompetence of a level that is indescribable. And it stands to reason we have got a President who never ran anything."

lol- This probably isn't a good time to mention unqualified, untested, unknown candidates really aren't a good bet in racehorses or presidents but I don't want anyone who voted for this dolt to feel badly so I won't say a single thing......

A cockeyed story?

Okay, then.

The only reason my story appears cockeyed to you is I'm not feeding you the answers you want me to serve up - I'm not "admitting" to what you have predetermined are my reasons for voting for Obama. My failure to comply with my assigned position seems to make you suspicious, causes you to doubt what I'm saying. That doubt and suspicion makes you think I'm trying to shut down a discussion, when in fact all I'm doing is failing to comply with your wishes.

You keep accusing me of trying to "put a halt to an uncomfortable conversation". The only thing 'uncomfortable' about this conversation is that you don't seem willing to accept what I say if it doesn't fit the positions you've assigned me.

I have to say that I am surprised you seem so naive about the importance of any particular individual of any party has. They are merely the best guess choice of the party to attain the office, in order to advance the agenda of the party. Obama's pre-election qualifications are not substantively different from Bush in 2000. The party, through the grueling primary process, ends up with what they hope is their best horse to win. Events swirled around Bush in much the same manner they have around Obama, with both seeming to have little grasp of what "their people" are up to.

I've not been surprised that so many are so hyper-focused on the cult of personality, but I would have guessed you were a little more circumspect.

Romney was a moderate, depending on which race he was running, in which week, parsing right down to individual speeches. Republicans were brought kicking and scratching to finally endorse Romney thru gritted teeth. They were ready to embrace blatant smiling pretenders rather than go for Romney. If you all so obviously didn't want him, how could you possibly expect the rest of us to take him? People couldn't be sure who they were voting for, which agrees perfectly with that "unknown" factor you're trying to present. At least Obama's speeches were consistent - Romney was all over the map, and even more so when he didn't think the cameras were rolling. If you're not surprised wiffle-waffle was a ding for Kerry, you shouldn't be surprised it was just as much for Romney.

By the way, to say Obama was the "furthest left candidate in the running" is a dead give-away that you've got historical myopia brought on by eating too many ditto-points. You do recall Kucinich was in that race? Mike Gravel? Shall I go on?
