Democrat Kirsten Powers on the Community Agitator Barack Obama’s “Fix” for Obamacare … “He’s Basically Just Creating Chaos”
What, a Sail Alinsky, community agitator creating chaos, say it isn’t so …
Democrat Kirsten Powers nails it while discussing Obama’s “Fix” on Fox News ‘Special Report’. Powers went on to say that the insurance companies were mandated by Obamacare that they had to spend their time putting plans together that were compliant with Obamacare and could no longer offer one’s that did not meet minimum standards. Then at the 11th hour the president just walks out and says, “oh forget that, we are going to do something completely different?” I give Kirsten Powers credit because she is speaking the truth and going against the Obama company talking point.
Kirsten Powers, who actually is one of those people who lost her so-called “substandard” insurance went o to say … “He’s Basically Just Creating Chaos.”
From Barack Obama’s Rules for Revolution: The Alinsky Model by David Horowitz: (pdf. version)
After his analysis of Saul Alinsky, Horowitz points out what the grandfather of “social organizing” created “is not salvation but chaos.” Then he asks the crucial question: “And presidential disciples of Alinsky, what will they create?”
How fitting, Barack Obama becomes a Live SNL skit and has his own ‘Emily Litella’ moment with Obamacare’s canceling of so-called substandard policies … “NEVER MIND!”
The Deep Blue State of Washington State Says It Won’t Allow Obama’s Administrative Health Plan “Fix”
Obamacare spiraling out of control …
The insurance commissioner in the liberal, deep blue state of Washington says no to Barack Obama’s healthcare fix that he put forth yesterday. Obama announced an administrative fix, code for unlawful executive edict, at a presser in an attempt to save his and other Democrat’s political bacon. After Obamacare forced every state and and every insurance company to spend untold millions to adapt to Obama’s signature piece of legislation, Barack Obama now tells them it’s okay to forget all that and change back to the old way. But just for one year. Are you kidding me. Oh, did we mention this walking disaster of an undisciplined, leaderless, joke of a president even managed to show up to the press conference 1/2 hour late? However, how exactly can Obama change a law in midstream and then tell state insurance commissioners to follow his latest whim, in order to save face? With the heat on as his pole numbers are sinking fast, Barack Obama now looks to once again shift the blame on to some one else, because the buck never stops with him. But, as the Lonely Conservative opines, “Who will they blame this on? Those evil Democrat Insurance Commissioners?”
America, this is what you get when you hire an unqualified, community agitator to be a CEO. Instead we have a misleader in office who is completely incapable of doing the job.
Washington state’s insurance commissioner says President Barack Obama’s proposal on old insurance policies isn’t a good deal for Washington citizens.
Commissioner Mike Kreidler said Thursday he won’t allow insurance companies to extend their old policies that didn’t meet the requirements of federal health care reform. An estimated 290,000 Washington residents have received notices that their old insurance policies will be canceled.
“Trying to do what the president has proposed would be very disruptive to the insurance market in the sate of Washington so no, we will not be allowing insurance companies to extend these policies,” he said. “You’d have to go back and re-rate all of the policies, and the premises for what they originally proposed rates would all change.”
Kreidler, a Democrat, says all of them can get better coverage on the new health care exchange. He says at least half of them will qualify for a subsidy to help them pay the premium.
“I have empathy for these people, I certainly feel for them, but at the same time, people really have a chance right now to shop and compare various health plans and make some decisions that best fits themselves and their families in ways that could never do before,” Kreidler said. “But if you wind up extending these current plans that are out there, you really disrupt the ability for that to happen.”
When asked if he was worried his decision was going to upset those who just heard earlier in the day they could keep their insurance, Kreidler replied that having the new policies that meet minimum coverage requirements will be beneficial to them in case of a major health incident.
PJ Media reports Arkansas will also go to allow the Obama “fix”.
Is Obama About to Break Another Pledge … Troubled HealthCare.gov Unlikely to Work Fully by Promised Date of End of November
From the WAPO, it would appear that President Barack Obama is about to break another pledge and promise to the American people as the disastrous Healthcare.fail website will not be fully functional by the end of November. Barack Obama and HHC Sec. Kathleen Sebelius promised that the web site would be fixed by by November. So what if it is not?
Software problems with the federal online health insurance marketplace, especially in handling high volumes, are proving so stubborn that the system is unlikely to work fully by the end of the month as the White House has promised, according to an official with knowledge of the project.
The insurance exchange is balking when more than 20,000 to 30,000 people attempt to use it at the same time — about half its intended capacity, said the official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to disclose internal information. And CGI Federal, the main contractor that built the site, has succeeded in repairing only about six of every 10 of the defects it has addressed so far.
Government workers and technical contractors racing to repair the Web site have concluded, the official said, that the only way for large numbers of Americans to enroll in the health-care plans soon is by using other means so that the online system isn’t overburdened.
This inside view of the halting nature of HealthCare.gov repairs is emerging as the insurance industry is working behind the scenes on contingency plans, in case the site continues to have problems. And it calls into question the repeated assurances by the White House and other top officials that the insurance exchange will work smoothly for the vast majority of Americans by Nov. 30. Speaking in Dallas a week ago, President Obama said that the “Web site is already better than it was at the beginning of October, and by the end of this month, we anticipate that it is going to be working the way it is supposed to, all right?”
EXIT QUESTION from The White House Dossier: Let me ask you a question. HOW ARE WE SUPPOSED TO BELIEVE ANYTHING THIS DAMN WHITE HOUSE SAYS, PARTICULARLY ON LIFE AND DEATH ISSUES LIKE IRAN? Amen Brother!!!

Barack Obama and Obamacare Coattails, Um I Mean Anchor … Public Policy Polling Says Incumbent Sen. Kay Hagan (D-NC) Poll Lead for 2014 Election Gone
Hmm, so DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz thinks that Democrats can run on Obamacare as a positive thing, eh?
Not only does Obamacare not have coattails for Democrats, it is an anchor that threatens to bring down the Democrat party worse than the shellacking they suffered during the 2010 midterms. Democrats are trying to distance themselves from Obamacare, but they certainly did not have a problem voting for it in lockstep and ramming it down the throats of Americans in a partisan manner. HR 3590, Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act 60-39, one of those Democrat votes was Kay Hagen. passed in the Senate However, actions have consequences. The latest Democrat to feel the backlash of the disastrous roll-out of Obamacare and Americans losing their insurance, even though Barack Obama promised they could keep it if they like it is incumbent Democrat Senator Kay Hagan of North Carolina. According to a recent poll from the Democrat polling firm PPP, Hagen’s lead for her 2014 senatorial election has all but vanished against all GOP candidates.
Incumbent Sen. Kay Hagan (D-N.C.) is near the top of national Republicans’ target list for 2014 — and a new poll shows her lead over her potential GOP challengers has all but evaporated.
Against state House Speaker Thom Tillis, Hagan leads by only 2 points, 44 percent to 42 percent, according to the Democratic firm Public Policy Polling. She leads the Rev. Mark Harris by 2 points as well, 43 percent to 41 percent, and nurse Heather Grant by 3 points, 43 percent to 40 percent.
Hagan trails physician Greg Brannon, the Rand Paul-endorsed candidate in the race, by 1 point: He leads 44 percent to 43 percent.
That’s a huge difference from PPP’s September poll, which gave Hagan leads of anywhere from 12 points to 17 points against all possible GOP challengers.
Hagan’s approval ratings are underwater in the poll: 49 percent of those surveyed disapprove of the job she’s doing, compared with 44 percent who approve.
The poll also suggests she could be suffering from the implementation of Obamacare: 69 percent of those surveyed said the law’s rollout has been unsuccessful so far, compared with 25 percent who say it’s been a success.
All of s sudden Sen. Kay Hagan is concerned for her political power and calls for probe of healthcare website as political support drops.
Now it would appear that the Democrats chickens are coming home to roost on their blind vote for Obamacare as none of them read the monstrous bill, instead they took Nancy Pelosi’s foolish advice that “we have to pass the bill to find out what is in it” (VIDEO). Hagen’s poll numbers are not only being affected by her underwater job approval numbers, Obama’s job approval numbers have cratered and the popularity of Obamacare and its implementation is at 69% unsuccessful. Keep in mind, those polled evenly voted for Obama and Romney in the 2012 presidential election.
Q1 Do you approve or disapprove of President Barack Obama’s job performance? 43% Approve … 53% Disapprove … 4% Not sure
Q2 Do you approve or disapprove of Senator Kay Hagan’s job performance? 44% Approve … 49% Disapprove … 7% Not sure
Q11 Do you approve or disapprove of the Affordable Care Act? 38% Approve … 48% Disapprove … 14% Not sure
Q12 Do you think the implementation of the Affordable Care Act so far has been very successful, somewhat successful, somewhat unsuccessful, very unsuccessful, or are you not sure? 4% Very successful … 21% Somewhat successful … 20% Somewhat unsuccessful … 49% Very unsuccessful … 7% Not sure
Q13 In the last presidential election, did you vote for Barack Obama or Mitt Romney? 47% Barack Obama … 47% Mitt Romney … 6% Someone else/Don’t remember
In 2014 there are 21 Democrat US Senators up for reelection, many of which are in Red/swing states. Those most in trouble have been clambering for Obama to fix the Obamacre train wreck as they fear for their political lives.

He Just Doesn’t Care … Barack Obama Stays Overnight in Florida to Play Golf as Millions of Americans Lose Their Insurance Because of Obamacare
FROM THE GOLFER IN CHIEF: LET THEM EAT THEIR CANCELED INSURANCE POLICIES …
Talk about a detached, cold fish president. As millions of Americans lose their insurance thanks to Obamacare, President Barack Obama goes golfing yet again. How is it possible some one could be so uncaring, so devoid of compassion and so clueless as while millions of Americans get insurance cancellation notices, after Obama had promised that if they liked their healthcare plan they could keep it, he goes golfing. The Obamacare website Healthcare.gov is a complete disastrous joke, the Obamacare policies are a lie and individuals are in turmoil, yet this rodeo clown goes golfing. Obama provided a faux-apology Thursday night to the American people who have been affected by his lies, yet Obama still thinks as Americans suffer due to his actions, he just goes golfing. But hey, he is really sorry America.
Sorry, but there is something seriously not right with an individual who acts like nothing is wrong, when nothing is going right.
Shhh, don’t tell anyone I really could give a hoot about the middle class, or Americans in general
President Obama appears to have remained overnight in Miami – incurring extra costs for taxpayers – just to play golf in the Florida sunshine.
Obama headed out this morning to the exquisite Grande Oaks Golf Club in Fort Lauderdale, a trip that required a half hour motorcade from his hotel his Miami. And it will be well worth the trip, at least for him. According to the course website:
As the Washington Times points out this is the 150th round of golf for Obama in 5 years.
Barack Obama, the Narcissist in Chief Says Says “I’ve Been Burned” By Obamacare Website … Dude, You are Not the Victim, the American People Are (Update: Obama Does Not Think He Lied)
What else should we expect from Barack Obama, the Narcissist in Chief ? For Obama its all about him, as he uses the words like “I” and “me”. This president just can’t help himself. Obama was supposed to be making an apology to “We the People” for the disastrous roll-out of Obamacare, for millions for people losing their insurance, for the misrepresentation and lies that Obama spewed regarding his signature piece of legislation, but instead he made himself the victim and then tried to catch himself.
During Barack Obama’s interview with NBC Political Director Chuck Todd Thursday night NBC’s Nightly News, President Obama said that “I’ve been burned by a website.” I? Excuse me Mr. President, you have been burned by the Healthcare.gov, really? This is exactly why no one considers Obama a leader and why thy refer to him as leading from behind. How does it even cross his mind as the first thing to say that he has been burned?
BARACK OBAMA: I am deeply frustrated about how this website has not worked over the first couple of weeks. And, I take responsibility of that. My team takes responsibility of that. And we are working every single day, 24/7, to improve it. And it’s better now than it was last week. It’s certainly a lot better than it was on October 1st. Having said that, given that I’ve been burned already with a website–well, more importantly the American people have been burned by a website that’s been dysfunctional, what we’ve also been doing is creating a whole other set of tracks, making sure that people can apply by phone effectively, making sure people can apply in person effectively.
Who cares about the stupid website that wen all is said and done will probably cost tax payers $1 billion, Americans are pissed that you knowingly lied to them about being able to keep their doctor if they liked their doctor, being able to keep their health insurance if they liked their health care coverage and lowering costs. Barack Obama has a huge credibility problem and it will most likely sink his presidency and Democrats.
UPDATE I: NBC Political Director Chuck Todd Interviewed by Hugh Hewitt … Todd said, “You know, he does not believe he lied on this, and that’s the sense I get.”
So the serial liar thinks that he did not lie. Some are using the term “pathological” liar to describe Obama, but I have to disagree. A pathological liar is defined as an individual who frequent and repeated lies for which no apparent psychological motive or external benefit can be discerned. What Barack Obama does is perform regular lies, ones that are goal-directed and are told to obtain external benefit. Obama is not lying, according to Obama, he is just following the teachings of Saul Alinsky of saying one thing and doing another. These lies were purposeful and with a designed outcome.
You know, he does not believe he lied on this, and that’s the sense I get. I mean, I think that that’s, he’s taken issue with that before with folks off the record, and I got it’s a sensitive issue, felt like he did not sit there and say he intentionally lied. He said that he wanted to, he thought he was going to be able to keep this promise. I thought what was revealing in that answer, when I asked him that direct question about this, was this a political lie that you started to believe it, was he talked about well, you know, it turns out we had trouble in crafting the law.
However, the American people know he lied, those who have lost their instance and cannot keep their doctors. Many of which are Democrats. So the real question is, what do we do with a president who lies and its not about sex? Answer … IMPEACH!!!
Pew Poll: Obama’s Approval Rating Hit the Skids … 41% Job Approval Rating … Only 37% Approve of Obama’s Handling of Obamacare, 59% Disapprove … Only 31% Approve of Handling of Economy
BUYERS REMORSE: Barack Obama’s poll approval numbers are in free-fall.
According to a recent PEW Poll, President Barack Obama’s poll numbers in his job approval and on Obamacare are in free-fall. Barack Obama’s job approval now stands at 41% approval, 53% disapproval. His approval rating is down 11% since January 2013. From top to bottom, the polling data is disastrous for Obama. It is even worse for Obama’s signature piece of legislation and his handling of it. Only 37% approve of his handling of Obamacare, while 59% disapprove. Back in January, it was 45% approve, 47% disapprove. But with all the attention on Obamacare, what might be the most damning poll number of all is Obama’s 31% approval rating on handling the economy.
But it gets even worse for Obama:
- 31% approve of the way Obama is handling the economy, while 65% disapprove.
- 21% of Independents give Obama positive marks on the economy, while 75% disapprove.
- 32% approves of the job Obama is doing on immigration policy; 60% disapprove.
- 32% of independents approve of his job performance while 61% disapprove. In December, 53% approved and 39% disapproved.
Powerline best describes Obama’s plummeting polling numbers as self-inflicted as compared to what happened in GWB’s second term. They ask the question, have the voters finally caught on that they have been had and mislead? Maybe. However, what might be one of the biggest reasons for Obama’s polling free-fall across the board, are the all too many scandals, a continues pathetic economy, individuals actually being affected personally by the cancellation of their insurance and the sticker shock of Obamacare and the fact that the MSM is actually having to cover the stories as they are all too noticeable.
Barack Obama has lost the trust of the American people, even those that gave him the benefit of the doubt.
Barack Obama has had a difficult year since his reelection victory. His overall job rating stands at 41%, down 14 points since last December. A majority (53%) now disapproves of the way he is handling his job as president.
The new survey finds that majorities disapprove of the way Obama is handling four of five issues tested, with terrorism the lone exception (51% approve, 44% disapprove). For every issue, including terrorism, his ratings are lower than they were earlier this year.
Obama’s job ratings on the economy have been more negative than positive for more than four years, but the current measure is the worst of his presidency. Just 31% approve of the way Obama is handling the economy, while 65% disapprove.
Only about one-in-five independents (21%) give Obama positive marks on the economy, while 75% disapprove. About a third of Democrats (34%) disapprove of the way Obama is handling the economy (64% approve).
Obama also gets negative ratings on health care policy (37% approve, 59% disapprove). In January, views of Obama’s handling of health care policy were mixed (45% approved, 47% disapproved).

The following story is brought to you by the number 1 and the letters, E-P-I-C- and F-A-I-L.
Aa Three Dog Night sang, ‘One is the loneliest number’ and ONE also appears to be the amount of individuals that have successfully enrolled into Obamacare in North Carolina through the NC healthcare exchanges. To make matters worse, if possible, that individual was also already a target of identity theft.
Barack Obama points out just how many individuals in NC have successfully enrolled in Obamacare … way to go Mr. President
North Carolina’s largest insurer is having its share of problems with the Obamacare website.
Internal emails obtained by WNCN-TV show that Blue Cross Blue Shield show that only 1,000 people had filled out applications as of October 15th.
In fact, only one person was able to successfully use Healthcare.gov to enroll in the new exchange.
But even that single person has not paid, which means the enrollment is not complete.
The emails suggest the “payment re-direct option” on government servers isn’t working.
Blue Cross Blue Shield found the entire system is so filled with glitches that the company decided not to upload data because it was afraid false information might enter its computer system.
And the emails reveal a scammer was using the insurer’s name to try to obtain personal information.
Obamacare Web Site Crashed on HHS Sec. Sebelius During House Hearings on Obamacare as Sebelius Says Obama has Kept His Promise that “If You Like Your Healthcare Plan You Can Keep It” VIDEO
You just can’t make this stuff up … with the Obama administration, its keeping your promise even when you are obviously not.
Yesterday during the House hearings on Obamacare and the disastrous rollout of the website Healthcare.gov, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius was on the hot seat as she fielded questions from the failed rollout, to security issues, to who is to blame as to was the site even tested. However, Sebelius could not answer the most obvious questions as to whether President Barack Obama kept his promise to the American people when he said repeatedly, “If You Like Your Healthcare Plan You Can Keep It.”
During the House Hearings hearings on the Obamacare website, US Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) asked the question on everyone’s mind to HHS Secretary Sebelius as to whether Barack Obama kept his promise to “We the People” or was he lying through his teeth?
Blackburn: Before, during and after the law was passed the president said if you like your healthcare plan you can keep it. So is he keeping his promise?
Sebelius: Yes he is.
YES? Um, what part of “If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor, period! If you like your healthcare plan, you can keep your healthcare plan, period!” doesn’t Sebelius quite get? Because the statement is so ambiguous, isn’t it? That would be sarcasm.
Video Hat Tip - The Gateway Pundit
In keeping with the farce and joke that is Obamacare and its unbelievable, disastrous incompetent rollout … as HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, the individual in charge of overseeing Obamacare and the implementation of the web site and health exchanges, was testifying before the House doing her best to spin and defend the indefensible … Healthcare.gov crashed during her testimony! As we say all the time, nothing is stranger than the truth and you just can’t make this stuff up.
Just minutes before Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius was set to testify on Capitol Hill, the Healthcare.gov site crashed. Spot checks verified that the State of North Carolina, Virginia, Utah, Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Nevada, Colorado, New Mexico, New York, Maryland, Vermont, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Hawaii, Kentucky, Minnesota, and New Hampshire are all down – which likely means the entire federal site is down.
The site was still down thirty-minutes into Sebelius’ testimony.
UPDATE I: Kathleen Sebelius apologizes for Obamacare website fiasco while Obama defends law in Boston.
Go figure, Barack Obama was less contrite in his tone and instead of apologizing, he doubled down and defended it.
Sebelius, the Health and Human Services secretary, apologized to the nation for the botched launch of the Affordable Care Act in testimony before the House Energy and Commerce Committee.
“In these early weeks, access to health care has been a miserably frustrating experience,” the former Kansas governor said.
“Let me say directly to these Americans: you deserve better,” Sebelius said. “I apologize.”
President Obama struck a less contrite tone in Boston as he defended the law by touting successes of the Massachusetts measure it was modeled on.
How low can he go … after having lied to America regarding Obamacare, “If you like your healthcare plan, you can keep your healthcare plan. period!” My bet is that it will go even lower …
According to the most recent NBC/WSJ poll, Obama’s job approval rating is down 5% this month to a new low of 42%. The Gateway Pundit reports via NBC’s Chuck Todd’s tweet, Obama’s persona; approval rating upside down for first time ever with 41% viewing him in a favorable light and 45% viewing him negatively. We have said for years that Obama’s approval rating would be in the 30′s if the liberal MSM just did their job and reported the truth and the news about Barack Obama, rather than be is propaganda shills. The MSM is just starting to fairly report on Obamacare and Obama’s lies.
Imagine, just imagine what Obama’s approval ratings would be like if the MSM decided to truthfully report on Benghazi, IRS-gate, the economy, the $17 trillion debt, Food Stamp America, Fast & Furious, the NSA, Energy policy, EPA, Obamacare and Obama’s disastrous foreign policy in Egypt, Libya, Syria and the entire Middle East. This man has been a catastrophe for the United States.
President Barack Obama’s approval rating has declined to an all-time low as public frustration with Washington and pessimism about the nation’s direction continue to grow, according to a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll.
Just 42 percent approve of the president’s job performance, which is down five points from earlier this month. By comparison, 51 percent disapprove of his job in office — tied for his all-time high.
The NBC/WSJ pollsters argue that no single reason explains Obama’s lower poll standing. Rather, they attribute it to the accumulation of setbacks since the summer — allegations of spying by the National Security Agency, the debate over Syria’s chemical weapons, the government shutdown and now intense scrutiny over the problems associated with the health care law’s federal website and its overall implementation.
As for other results from the NBC/WSJ poll, from the looks of how individuals feel about Congress, incumbent and establishment politicians should be a bit nervous heading into 2014 and 2016. The people may have finally reached the tipping point and will throw the bums out.

Real Clear Politics has every poll with Obama’s job approval rating underwater and an average of 43.9% approve, 51.6% disapprove and -7.7% spread.
