Shutdown, spying and health care law are taking toll

November 5, 2013

Well is it cold day in H*ell? Rover actually answered my question intelligently and pretty much truthfully.

OMG! I'm going to cry . . . . . .

@BushCrimeFantasy - Ha! That heavily-funded VA Democrat just barely squeaking into office at 48% with an assist from a fake, Dem-funded "liberatarian" against a Conservative, who received what amounts to zero assistance from the RINO GOP, is great news for Conservatives and the Tea Party. Cuccinelli did far better than I expected, with so much money stacked against him. Lots of Dems and RINOs wiping their sweaty brows tonight. Lots of voter's remorse coming soon to VA.

daWrath asks, "tell us why Obama has terminated the careers of over 200 4 star generals and top commanders in the US military. "

I have no 'insight' or special knowledge of the current situation on those removals. I would guess it's a mix centered on 'clash of cultures' between a near total non-military experience White House staff and the fear and loathing that can fester when having to work with 'manly men'. Plus, the country is in a massive movement to swing the social pendulum to advocates of values that would have meant prison sentences less than a decade ago. And there is always the 'eminence gris' of powerful, but flawed, advisors to a leader not having a spectrum of real world experiences. Bush's crutches were Chaney and Rice.....Obama's crutch is Valerie Jarrett ('the night stalker') who has free rein in the White House. As a Stanford educated Iranian may have a Nixonian 'enemies list'. She has too much power over a fawning Michelle and a bit too pliable Barry. Wh

Great night for Democrats around the country. Extreme rightwingers were defeated in Virginia. Obamacare and women were the big winners.

The Grim Reaper is revenge for the Butcher of Benghazi.

So Rover, the "military man": tell us why Obama has terminated the careers of over 200 4 star generals and top commanders in the US military. Most in history in such as short time. The man is freakin DISGRACE to this country and the fine generals and colonels who serve this country.

@flatlander...'Rover

Christie will never win the GOP nomination because he's too logical'

I'm sure you're right and that's sad....real sad. I could never stand the Clintons...none of them...ever! Bill is 'slick'...Hillary is arrogant but stupid and that's a bad combination. The daughter is clueless and would be selling perfume in a 5 & 10 if she was born into a regular family.

Christie is so much smarter, honest and principled than anyone else scheming for the Presidency is just sad the GOP cannot see he is the, and I mean THE, possible savior of their party for the gaining Executive Branch. He has a real chance as I don't think Hillary will make a run due ONLY to what I see as the 'grim reaper' in the distant shadows....she does not look well at all.

No, no, no, no, no--that's not what the Obama administration said. What it said was:

"That means that no matter how we reform health care, we will keep this promise to the American people: If you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor, period. If you like your health care plan, you'll be able to keep your health care plan, period. No one will take it away, no matter what." – President Obama, speech to the American Medical Association, June 15, 2009, during the debate over health insurance reform.

"And if you like your insurance plan, you will keep it. No one will be able to take that away from you. It hasn't happened yet. It won't happen in the future." – Obama, remarks in Portland, Ore., April 1, 2010, after the bill was signed into law.

These quotes are courtesy of Washington Post fact-checker Glenn Kessler, who gave Obama four Pinocchiosfor the you-can-keep-it whopper, repeated countless times by Obama.

It might not seem possible that President Obama could do more harm to his credibility and the public's faith in government than misleading Americans about health insurance reform. But he can. The president is now misleading the public about his deception.

In a speech Monday night to his political team, Obama said: "Now, if you have or had one of these plans before the Affordable Care Act came into law and you really liked that plan, what we said was you can keep it if it hasn't changed since the law passed."

No, no, no, no, no--that's not what the Obama administration said.

Ooops did I say Obama was at 40% approval on Gallup???

My Bad! Another day, another DROP!!!

New pool he is down to 39% Approval, a NEW LOW.

Down 10 whole points from just a month ago!!!!!

As we have said here continuously, every DAY thousands more voters, at least half or more DEMS are finding out when to try to sign up for Obamacare that they WERE LIED TO!!!

The care is NOT affordable and about 93 million Americans will eventually LOSE their current healthcare.

They DON'T have to get that from Huffington Post or Daily Kos or from Fox News or Drudge.

They KNOW first person.

The self-sufficient will find a way to survive with or without government intervention.

Those that care will support the truly needy through their benevolence and charity.

The takers will look with envy at what others have worked for and continue to complain that the government hasn't given them everything that they are entitled to as Americans.

Nothing ever really changes! Now that's really a wonderwhy!

Obama - "Make no doubt about it, no one is more upset about it than I am, people are finally realizing that I'm an arrogant phony, seeking a legacy by whatever means I choose to exploit, unwilling to take responsibility for my actions and decisions."

"Also, if you like your insurance, you can keep your insurance, PERIOD...unless ......."

Is untruthful a politically correct description?

For a long time I wondered why Progressives can continually gather supporters, even as their agenda fails, one nation at a time, leading the citizenry into a spiral of deeper poverty and despair.

Then I realized, its easier to believe in the Hope that someone else will Change your life than it is to take responsibility for your life and work for the Changes that you desire.

And besides, that rich guy down the street was "lucky". If you had his "luck" you would be rich also, except you don't have the ambition to capitalize on your "luck", so you vote for someone that promises to take "luck" from the rich guy and give it to you, only you then realize that the politician took the "luck" for himself and left both you and your formerly rich guy without; how "unlucky" can you get! Hope for Change in your life, or Work for Change in your life, its your life so you decide!

Wvhoopie asked:

"So when Virginia votes blue today and the Dems win, what does that mean?"

It will mean that there a lot of stupid people in VA.

Especially considering that IF McAuliffe wins, he will most likely do so with less 50% of the vote because there is a libeterian candidate who is polling at about 12%.

These votes come from people who have no love for McAuliffe, but because they are too stupid to vote for the person who can keep McAuliffe out of office McAuliffe may get elected.

This is where third party morons drive me nuts. They vote for a person who WON'T get elected and end up electing the last person that they would wnat to win.

Perot voters gave us Clinton in BOTH of his elections and these people may end up doing the same thing in VA.
