Obama says he wants to be an ESPN Sports Center host after he retires as president. Scared Monkeys says, why wait …
HOPE & CHANGE … Well now we know what Barack Obama’s master plan was in getting the job as president of the United States. It was a resume builder for his dream job, to be a host at ESPN’s Sports Center. As stated at Hot Air, now it makes sense why Obama has devoted so much time and effort to March Madness brackets, the Super Bowl, and the World Series for the last five years “while casually mucking up giant parts of his day job” as president. I say, why wait? Please just quit now and go to ESPN, please! Although I will also sadly say that he is probably more qualified to be an ESPN host than he is president. I guess we now know why he takes the job so seriously.
Just don’t let him be the new Jimmy “the Greek” picking sports games, as Barack the Socialist is not very good at picking “winners and losers”. I can see Lee Corso on Game Day doing a perpetual loop of “NOT SO FAST!”
From The Hollywood Reporter:
If you have any doubt as to how much of a sports junkie Barack Obama is, check in with the entertainment moguls who attended a private briefing with the president Nov. 26 before his speech at Jeffrey Katzenberg’s DreamWorks Animation campus in Glendale.
At the end of the conversation — which touched on a myriad of topics, from piracy to Iran — Obama revealed what’s at the top of his bucket list post-White House: “At least I know what I want to do when I retire … host ESPN SportsCenter’s Top 10 list,” Obama quipped as he turned to Disney’s Robert Iger, whose empire includes ESPN.
Weasel Zippers some what agrees, “Well, he is an expert at reading off a teleprompter”.
However, I would remind all as I did intern for a short period of time at a news outlet that everything is not provided to hosts on a teleprompter. Many times a producer is talking in your ear and you have to ad-lib. I would suggest that Barack Obama nt use the video below as his audition tape.
“Young Invincibles” Turn on Obama in a Major Way … Harvard Poll: Millennial’s 18-29 Year-Olds Says 54% Disapprove of Obama’s Job Performance, 61% Disapproved of his Handling of Healthcare & 57% Disapproved of the Affordable Care Act
Millennial Buyers Remorse …
OUCH … 18 to 29 year-olds are in revolt against President Barack Obama, how he has handled his job, healthcare and Obamacare itself!!!
Hey Mr. President … the millennial’s just are not that into you anymore now that they know they truth and they have been lied to and used. Couple the healthcare lies with the NSA spying scandals and the youth that so supported Barack Obama in the 2008 and 2012 presidential elections now learn that there is nothing “Hopey-Changey” about Obama. He is the same old, same old lying politicians. Maybe even worse. According to a new Harvard IOP poll, among the 18- 29- year olds currently without health insurance, less than 1/3 say they’re likely to enroll in the exchange. 13% say they will definitely enroll, 16% say they will probably enroll; 41% say they are 50-50 at the moment.
- 54% Disapprove of Obama’s Job Performance
- 61% Disapproved of his Handling of Healthcare
- 57% Disapproved of the Affordable Care Act
- 44% said they think the quality of their health care will get worse
The Millennials actually now look more like the rest of the voter electorate.
The trend is daunting for the White House but not necessarily surprising,” said Pew Research Center Director Michael Dimock.
“Younger folks are part of Obama’s base … but the rollout confirmed concerns that were already in their minds.”
A poll released Wednesday by Harvard University’s Institute of Politics found that more than half of 18- to 29-year-olds disapprove of ObamaCare and believe it will raise their healthcare costs.
Even more troubling for the administration is that less than one-third of uninsured young people said they plan to enroll in coverage.
Without a large number of young, healthy people in the insurance exchanges, it could create a “death spiral” of high premiums that could threaten the long-term viability of the marketplaces.
The White House appears to recognize the growing threat, and is making outreach to younger people a major focus of its ObamaCare relaunch.
The president began the effort on Wednesday with a youth summit at the White House where he urged audience members to spread the word about the new healthcare exchanges — and think hard about their own health risks.
BREAKING: Reuters is reporting that a United States citizen working at the international school in Benghazi, Libya has been shot and killed. FOX News is reporting that medical and security sources told Reuters that the man was targeted by gunmen as he was exercising. No one has yet taken responsibility for the cowardly act.
Gunmen have killed a U.S. citizen working at an international school in the Libyan city of Benghazi, medical and security sources said on Thursday.
The attackers shot the American man, who was an instructor or teacher at the Benghazi school, while he exercised in the morning, the sources said.
After the murders of four Americans in Benghazi on September 11, 2012, including the death of US Ambassador Chris Stevens has literally gone unpunished by the Obama administration, terrorists in Benghazi must think it is open season on Americans. There has been no comment yet from the Obama administration as to whether an anti-Muslim tape was responsible for the shooting.
This is what happens when you do not respond to terrorist acts in kind. How have the deaths of Tyrone Woods, Sean Smith, Glen Doherty and Amb. Chris Stevens not been investigated and justice not been served?

Democratic Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid Says Let ‘We the People’ Eat Obamacare … To Exempt Some of his Staff From Having to Buy Insurance Through Obamacare
If any law maker ever passes inflicts a law on the American people and does not have to abide by it themselves, should be thrown out of office. Enter Democrat Majority Leader Harry Reid who has exempted some of his staff from following the very law that Democrats passed along a partisan vote on the American people. No double standard here.
What, me accept Obamacare … are you crazy!!!
Democratic Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, one of Obamacare’s architects and staunchest supporters, is also the only top congressional leader to exempt some of his staff from having to buy insurance through the law’s new exchanges.
Reid is the exception among the other top congressional leaders. GOP House Speaker John Boehner, House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi and Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell have all directed their staffs to join the exchange, their aides said.
In the charged atmosphere surrounding Obamacare, Reid’s decision only gives Republicans more ammo to attack Democrats already suffering politically from the law’s botched rollout.
Onyango Obama, President Obama’s Kenyan Born Uncle BO Claims He Never Met, Evades Deportation After DUI Arrest … Uncle’s Testimony Contradicts White House Account
It’s good to know people in high places, even if they claim they have never met you before …
The White House stated that the immigration case against “Uncle Omar” would be treated like any other immigration case. Sure it will, and if you like your healthcare plan, you can keep it. As reported at The Boston Globe, President Obama’s Uncle, Onyango “Omar” Obama, is allowed to stay after a hearing in a U.S. immigration court yesterday. Onyango Obama had been ordered to leave the United States in 1986, 1989, and again 1992, but he disregarded the deportation orders. Hmm, like uncle, like nephew, it would appear that disregarding the laws of the US and illegal immigration run deep with the Obama’s. Uncle Omar most likely would most likely have remained an unknown, anonymous, illegal alien, law breaker but for his arrested for drunk driving in Framingham, Massachusetts on August 24, 2011.
Hmm … another lie?
A federal immigration judge ruled Tuesday that President Obama’s uncle can remain in the United States, sparing him deportation to his native Kenya in a case that riveted attention on the elderly man who had lived under the radar in this country for 50 years. For most of that time, he was here illegally.
Boston immigration Judge Leonard I. Shapiro said Onyango “Omar” Obama can now get a green card, and in five years, apply for US citizenship, unless the Department of Homeland Security appeals the case within 30 days.
“Congratulations,” Shapiro said after he announced his decision. “Welcome to America.”
The case stirred controversy because the president’s uncle was arrested in 2011 for drunken driving in Framingham and was found to have an outstanding deportation order from 1992. Many accused the government of giving him special treatment at the same time President Obama is deporting record numbers of illegal immigrants.
What would a hearing be with an Obama without a ‘Things that Make you go Hmm’ moment? During the deportation hearing yesterday Onyango Obama testified that his nephew, Barack Obama, stayed with him in the ’80s while a student at Harvard Law School. However, that story, contradicts the White House’s account, which says that the two men never met.
Another lie, but why? As Weasel Zippers opines, “So one more lie about Obama’s past uncovered. Why lie about this, just to not seem to have connection to illegal uncle?” Especially when Barack Obama could care less that illegals exist in the United States and wants to grant illegals amnesty. Why does it seem that pretty much everything about Obama is based on a lie?
Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) Says of the Obama Administration: “I Think the Current Administration Has Taken Lying to a New Level”
Senator John Cornyn is finally on board with Scared Monkeys … Barack Obama is The
Lion Lying King …
Last night on the Kelly File’s, Megyn Kelly discussed with Obama sycophant and National Press Secretary for Obama’s 2012 campaign Ben Labolt about Sen. Cornyn’s comment that, “I think the current administration has taken lying to a new level.” In typical Obama/Saul Alinsky fashion, Labolt attacked Republicans for the failures of Obamacare. Pathetic. Then he went on to lie and say that Obama apologized for lying to Americans, that they could keep their healthcare plan if they liked it, Period! Of course Kelly was quick to correct the Obama mouth peice to say that what the president said was that he was sorry that people found themselves in the situation they are in because of something he said. And of course there was the typical “blame Bush” attack. What a pathetic bunch of people who just are incapable of telling the truth and owning up to it when they are caught red handed.
Come on America, I think it was pretty obvious that Barack Obama, Democrats and their minions mislead and lied to the American people.
Sen. John Cornyn says the White House has been lying about the attack on the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya, and accused them of a cover-up.
“I think the current administration has taken lying to a new level,” Cornyn said during a Google hangout on Monday in response to a question about Benghazi.
Cornyn praised the work of House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, who has tried to subpoena information and witnesses from the State Department. The senator said Congress should use “all the tools available … to hold people accountable.”
“It’s harder when the administration decides to cover this up and mislead and to change the subject, which they seem very good at doing, but … I assure you we’re not going to let this one go,” Cornyn said. “To me that’s the one thing that I find most aggravating about what’s happening in Washington these days and particularly about this administration, which is a lack of accountability and the willingness to mislead people or provide them just demonstrably false information and expect to be able to move on.”
FOX News White House Reporter Ed Henry To WH Press Secretary Jay Carney … It Doesn’t Sound Like ObamaCare Website Is Actually Fixed
This is how the Obama White House defines meeting their Obamacare goals, when site is stressed, instead of getting an error message, they send you off to an overload area and send you an email to try again later.
Yesterday, Fox News White House reporter Ed Henry held Press Secretary
Baghdad Bob Jay Carney’s feet to the fire and questioned whether the Obama administration had actually met the deadline of fixing the Healthcare.gov web site. People are getting a cue message, instead of an error message. The individuals are still not enrolling, they are just getting placed in another line to wait. But this is the governments definition of success. So what did Carney do in his response, got defensive of course. Note to Obama Admin, you have no more “trust” capital with the American people. Either start telling the truth and acting like humans to others who you have consistently lied to for feel their wrath in 2014, 2016 and thereafter.
These people are still playing politics and being disingenuous with the American people even after they have been caught with their hand in the cookie jar.
One-Third of Individuals Who Have Signed Up for Obamacare Might Not Get the Coverage They’re Expecting Next Month
ARE YOU KIDDING ME … THE CHAOS CONTINUES!
From the WAPO, just because you signed up for healthcare thru the Obamacare web site, does not necessarily mean that you are enrolled. UNREAL. So now you can’t keep the insurance that you were forced to enroll in that you didn’t want in the first place because the insurance plan you had was canceled by Obamacare. So as ABC News reports, New Obamacare Headache: Is Your Enrollment Real? It is absolutely unbelievable that after all the lies, misinformation, glitches, failed web site and bad law, now those that go to the website do not even know if their enrollment is real. This goes beyond a head shaking moment.
But two days later, his insurer has no record of the transaction, Shlora said, even though his account on the government website indicates that he has a plan.
“I feel like this: My application was taken … by a bureaucrat, it was put on a conveyor belt and it’s still going around, and it’s never going to leave the building,” he said. “I’ve lost hope. If it happens, great.”
The enrollment records for a significant portion of the Americans who have chosen health plans through the online federal insurance marketplace contain errors — generated by the computer system — that mean they might not get the coverage they’re expecting next month.
The errors cumulatively have affected roughly one-third of the people who have signed up for health plans since Oct. 1, according to two government and health-care industry officials. The White House disputed the figure but declined to provide its own.
The mistakes include failure to notify insurers about new customers, duplicate enrollments or cancellation notices for the same person, incorrect information about family members, and mistakes involving federal subsidies. The errors have been accumulating since HealthCare.gov opened two months ago, even as the Obama administration has been working to make it easier for consumers to sign up for coverage, the government and industry officials said.
Figuring out how to clean up the backlog of errors and prevent similar ones in the future is emerging as the new imperative if the federal insurance exchange is to work as intended. The problems were the subject of a meeting Monday between administration officials and a new “Payer Exchange Performance Team” made up of insurance industry leaders.
The idea that one-third of the enrollment records are flawed “doesn’t accurately reflect the picture of what’s happening right now,” White House senior communications adviser Tara McGuinness said.
WHAT A MESS … Get ready for the Identity Theft that is going to be a result of the Obamacare web site where no security was ever put in place …
From CNBC comes the following frightening revelations. The security issues with the beleaguered web site are even worse than thought. David Kennedy, a cybersecurity expert told CNBC the unthinkable, ”When you develop a website, you develop it with security in mind. And it doesn’t appear to have happened this time.” He was then asked whether the site posed a risk to individuals personal information. Kennedy responded, putting your information on the Healthcare.gov web site puts yourself at risk. Since it is on the federal level, the government does not have to disclose that they have been hacked or a breach has occurred.
It could take a year to secure the risk of “high exposures” of personal information on the federal Obamacare online exchange, a cybersecurity expert told CNBC on Monday.
“When you develop a website, you develop it with security in mind. And it doesn’t appear to have happened this time,” said David Kennedy, a so-called “white hat” hacker who tests online security by breaching websites. He testified on Capitol Hill about the flaws of HealthCare.gov last week.
“It’s really hard to go back and fix the security around it because security wasn’t built into it,” said Kennedy, chief executive of TrustedSec. “We’re talking multiple months to over a year to at least address some of the critical-to-high exposures on the website itself.”
How did this government allow such a colossal failure to go forward that would put so many millions of Americans at risk of ID theft? In one respect, they are lucky that it was so poorly constructed that people could not get on to enroll and in turn have their info hacked.

Democrats Need to Worry About a Lot More than Just Obamacare Web Site Problems in 2014 … They Have a Trust Problem, and That Economy Thing
Hey Democrats, it is not the Obamacare web site that is the from, it is the law, the logistics and the lies …
A WAPO oped penned by Marc A. Thiessen points out the real issues that Democrats should be panicked over for the 2014 midterm election, not the disastrous roll-out or relaunch of the failed web page, Healthcare.gov. There is a reason why no one who voted for Obamacare, only Democrats and no Republicans, never read the 2000 pages of the Obamacare bill before passage. Then, Speaker of the House made the foolish comment, we have to pass the bill in order to see what’s in it. Really? Only politicians with an agenda have to put their hand into the fire to see if they get burned. Now in the wake of the Obamacare roll-out and Americans finally finding out what is being inflicted upon them, they are mad as hell. Democrats are now panicked that they are in trouble for 2014. However, the main issue here is Americans are not just angry about a broken Web site; they are angry about a broken promise.
There is a reason why Obama’s job approval ratings are averaging in the near 30′s. And it is not just about Obamacare, check out his average polling at RCP on handing the economy, it is in the 30′s.
VIDEO – Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-LA) says at 1:03, “if you like the healthcare plan you have, you can keep it”.
- 5.5 million. That is how many people the administration needs to sign up in just 23 days because Obamacare drove them out of their health-care plans. That’s some 240,000 sign-ups every single day, just to break even. Getting that many enrolled in a few weeks would be extraordinarily difficult even if the Web site were working perfectly, which it isn’t.
- 50 million. That is how many Americans will be surprised to find their employer-based health plans dropped or substantially changed next year because of Obamacare. Some will see their plans canceled; others will lose their doctors and see premiums or deductibles rise dramatically.
- 53. That is the percentage of Americans who now say that President Obama is not “honest or trustworthy.” Americans are not just questioning Obama’s competence, they also are questioning his integrity.
- 12. That is the number of Senate Democrats up for reelection in 2014 who are complicit in Obama’s lie. They are on record (and on YouTube) making the same false promise. Democrat Sens. Mary Landrieu (LA) ,Mark Pryor (AR) , Sen. Kay Hagan (NC) , Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (NH), Sen. Mark Begich (AK), Sen. Mark Warner (VA) all in one way or another are on record of making promises that you can keep your heathcare plan if you like it.
- 7. That is the number of states with vulnerable Democratic-held senate seats that also have Republican governors. Why is this important? Because Obamacare premiums are set to skyrocket next year. No wonder the president moved next year’s Obamacare sign-up date to 11 days after Election Day. The flaw in his plan is that the nation’s governors will know the new rates before Election Day. In blue states, Democratic governors may keep the secret, but in red states, such as Alaska, Iowa, Louisiana, Michigan, North Carolina, New Mexico and South Dakota, Republican governors won’t.
You can fix a web site, maybe … fixing trust, that’s near impossible.
Oh, and by the way, even though Barack Obama has claimed victory and they have met their goals of November 30 … the site still does not work!
