You didn't need a Chris Matthews type to tell you about Karl Rove or anyone else in the Bush administration.
If Beck hadn't pulled back the curtain, we still might not know who Jarrett was or the significant influence she has in this White House and this administration.
You don't see a problem not knowing who surrounds any president - much less a top advisor the Washington Post calls "mysterious"?
Rove may have been called a lot of things but never "mysterious".
Wasn't this presidency supposed to be the most transparent?
No previous presidency has faced the wrath of the internet and by proxy the "crazies" like this one has had to. GWB got hit, particularly in his second term but nothing like Obama.

It will get worse as time passes I suspect__due to the likes of entertainment cable news and the scumbags like you who provide echos for the lies.

Probably because Bush wasn't a radical liberal who promised to fundamentally transform the country into his own image and wasn't mentored by Marxists and whose policies follow the Marxist Manifesto.

Just guessing...but that's probably why Obama is facing more wrath than any other persident.

As usual, you're wrong, Ed.
The ACA has nothing to do with selection of practicioners. But you're too stupid to know that and too hateful to look into it. It is her health plan that chooses doctors. That decision is made by her insurance carrier.
It's much easier for a dumbass like you to blame everything on Obama.
This new Catholic Pope is going to rock your world. No more of pretending to be a Catholic, he's going to force you nitwits to follow the teachings of Jesus and love thy neighbors, or go over to the Repugnants and practice hatred and division.

My daughter has been advised that her health care provider is not a member of a provider that is covered by the insurance they offer. The services were covered pror to nobamakare.

Bush seemed liberal enough on Medicare,
a topic on which you whine?

A C A is simply President Obama following President George W Bush's footsteps.
President George W Bush expanded Medicare to include Prescription drugs!

Monday, December 8, 2003 Posted: 1:23 PM EST

WASHINGTON (CNN)-- President Bush on Monday signed into law landmark Medicare reform legislation that includes prescription drug benefits and has sparked a bitter fight between opponents and supporters.
Speaking at DAR Constitution Hall in Washington,

Bush characterized the measure as "the greatest advance in health care coverage for America's seniors since the founding of Medicare."

In other words, you have no intelligent reply because all I posted is accurate. Obama is as huge a fraud as the phony sign language interpreter.

We have a president with little management experience. And it's showing.

The health care reform mess has been spectacular. The troubles with the program's website and enrollment are ONLY THE BEGINNING.

The news last week that some insurance plans are charging subscribers exorbitant co-pay fees for drugs to help offset the cost of not being able to exclude people with prior conditions also signals poor management.

Would tighter management have spotted this trend earlier and avoided gaffes like the president's misstatement about everyone being able to keep their existing health plan? My guess is YES.

Presidents have come from a variety of backgrounds, and some had deep executive experience before assuming the job.

George Washington and Dwight Eisenhower were generals with challenging leadership jobs before the presidency.

The two Roosevelts were former governors well-prepared to manage domestic issues.

Barack Obama arrived in the White House with four years' experience in the U.S. Senate, a few years in the Illinois State Legislature, and no experience in line management or familiarity with the executive function.

He has never run anything successfully, except a campaign built on hope and change. And all we got was cope and cringe.

Other Presidents without a lot of real world executive experience had the brains to fill that void with experienced advisors. Obama surrounds himself with the likes of Valerie Jarrett, an evil empty suit with slumlord as her major credential.

According to several stories reportedly leaked by White House staff, Obama wasn't told "directly" about the problems with health care reform implementation.

Can you imagine the screams from the left leaning media had we substituted GWB's name for all the "I didn't know, no one told me" coming from this non-leader?

It is part of his job as chief executive to direct staff to relay all information and to create a climate in which bad news is fully conveyed.

Look at how John F. Kennedy, who also had zero executive experience, handled the Cuban missile crisis.

He learned to probe the positions of his advisers, to make sure he received accurate information and independent advice, and to ensure decisions were carried out.

What might have happened if Kennedy's team had brought to the missile crisis the modus operandi that the Obama White House brought to health care reform? Can you imagine the Kennedy White House saying lamely the president wasn't "told directly" about the Soviet missiles in Cuba?

Listen to what Obama recently told MSNBC's Chris Matthews about health care reform implementation: "The challenge ... is not so much my personal management style or particular issues around White House organization ... it actually has to do with ... these big agencies, some of which are outdated, some of which are not designed properly."

Welcome to the presidency and the world of government, Mr. "President."

U.S. President George W. Bush, saying "our entire economy is in danger," urged Congress to approve his administration's $700 billion bailout proposal.
"We're in the midst of a serious financial crisis, and the federal government is responding with decisive actions," Bush said in a televised address Wednesday night from the White House.
Bush pointed out that the collapse of several major lenders was rooted in the subprime mortgage market that thrived over the past decade.
He said passage of the $700 billion bailout proposal was needed to restore confidence in the market.
"I'm a strong believer in free enterprise, so my natural instinct is to oppose government intervention," he said. But "these are not normal circumstances. The market is not functioning properly. There has been a widespread loss of confidence.
"Without immediate action by Congress, America can slip into a major panic." Watch Bush warn of the consequences »
If Congress fails to approve the rescue plan, the nation could face a "long and painful recession," Bush said.
"The plan is big enough to solve a serious problem," Bush said.

The plan calls for the government to buy from firms up to $700 billion in troubled assets -- mainly mortgage-backed securities -- whose values declined as the housing market imploded. The goal is to stabilize the companies and prompt them to lend again. iReport.com : How would you spend $700B?
"The government is the only institution patient enough to buy these assets at their current low prices and hold them until their prices return to normal," he said.
Federal Reserve chief Ben Bernanke warned Wednesday that the Wall Street crisis is the worst the nation has faced since the end of World War II and urged Congress to take action on a proposed bailout package.
Congress is considering whether to allow Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson to use federal funds to buy up to $700 billion in mortgage-related securities and other assets that have caused turbulence on Wall Street and have undermined credit markets worldwide.
But Paulson and Bernanke faced deeply skeptical lawmakers, including members of Bush's own party, when they pitched the plan before congressional committees Tuesday and Wednesday. Watch as lawmakers push back »
The White House had been taken a mostly hard line during the negotiations with Congress, but it is signaling a new spirit of cooperation that suggests the administration realizes the situation is so serious that it will have to compromise in order to get something done.
"This is not take-it-or-leave-it," a senior administration official said earlier Wednesday. "We'll accept changes."
