Even Liberal Comic JOn Stewart weighed in;

"Stewart seemed baffled by how some of the website's most basic functions — even the calculator — won't work. He also dismissed how Democrats "are trying to spin this turd,"

"Stewart said normally websites are set up so it’s “nearly impossible to not sign up for something,” but somehow the Obama administration managed to fumble at every turn." (Mediaite)

Yeah, all computer related!!

Yes, it all the computer's fault!!! Nothing to do w/ the programmers or the people that HIRED the programmers!

"Consumer Reports tried to give potential users some advice: First, follow very carefully the needlessly complicated instructions for creating a password that has at least seven characters and at least one uppercase letter, one lowercase letter, one number and one symbol.

Second, as soon as you encounter a problem logging on, start over, since you can’t believe what the error messages tell you. If you happen to make it through, keep a sharp eye out for an e-mail confirming your account, or you’ll soon be timed out.

Finally, when verifying your identity on the site, you may want to do it from a different browser than the one you registered from.

Got it?

The publication’s bottom line: “Stay away from for at least another month if you can.”

caltrans “I think the NR needs to be investigated for treason!”

By all means, cal. You “Progressives” are systematically tearing down the rest of the US Constitution, so I’m not surprised you’re ready to ignore the First Amendment protections of freedom of speech and freedom of the press, too.

“Treason.” That would be funnier if Obama weren’t already abusing citizens with his NSA investigations by eavesdropping and email recording, his IRS selective investigations, his TSA investigations/molestations of elderly and children, even his National Park Service “rangers” abuse of veteran and elderly tourists, for God’s sake... LOL

cal “Harry "the butcher" Truman”

You mean Harry “The Buck Stops Here” Truman? From a sycophant of Barry “I never saw a buck I couldn’t spend” Obankrupter, who NEVER took responsibility for ANYTHING, that’s hilarious.

“The Butcher”? Seriously? Because he succeded in ending WWII, sparing MILLIONS of American soldiers’ lives? What planet did you transplant from, cal? LOL

If he could see what a pathetic, wealth-redistributing, entitlement-grabbing, debt-amassing mess you “progressive” Democrits have made of the Harry Truman’s Democrat Party, Harry Truman would be rolling in his grave. LOL

altrans “[Obumbler] has taken responsibility for the problems”

No, cal. “Taken responsibility” would involve identifying the persons in HIS Administration in charge of this EPIC fail of an EPIC taxing/spending program and FIRING their sorry azzes. Making excuses for “a few computer glitches” that “always happen” and muttering about how “mad” he is is NOT taking responsibility, unless you’re a typical Democrit.

once again, this rag of a newspaper has launched a personal attack against the President that is totally unsubstantiated. He has taken responsibility for the problems, although they are all computer related (that never happens), but the NR implies otherwise with a reference to a statement made by Harry "the butcher" Truman. Once again, there is no scam, no scandal! Just another attempt by this paper to disrupt our government and sabotage the implementation of duly enacted laws. I think the NR needs to be investigated for treason!

So the Obamascam enrollment website is down? Count your blessings. If they never get it fixed it will be too soon.

I just hope the IRS will delay enforcing the fines for not enrolling until the enrollment process actually works. No? Oh well, you know the IRS. I'm sure they'll give you a break. Arm or leg?
