SNL Rips HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius & the Falied Obamacare Website Launch … “Millions of Americans of Americans are visiting Healthcare.gov … Unfortunately the site was only designed to handle six users at a time”
Even Saturday Night Live could not ignore the disastrous train-wreck launch of the Obamacare website, Healthcare.gov …
SNL ripped HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius and the Obamacare launch in their opening skit, “now a lot of folks have been talking about our new healthcare enrollment website. How it’s been crashing and freezing and shutting down and stalling and not working and breaking and sucking”. In the skit Sebelius went on to make excuses for the delays and slow running, malfunctioning site, “we’re probably just loaded with traffic. Millions of Americans of Americans are visiting Healthcare.gov, which is great news. Unfortunately the site was only designed to handle six users at a time”.
The skit was just amazingly brutal to the screw up that has been the Obamacare website launch. However, it is not like 60% of Americans do not think it was a joke already. As brutal as the skit was, it could have been even worse.
However, what is sad is that SNL could have just repeated verbatim comments made by Sebelius HERE and HERE, Barack Obama and Press Sec. Jay Carney. To make matters worse Barack Obama gave out the telephone number to call if individuals could not access the website and … wait for it, wait for it … the phones were busy and gave messages referring people back to the failed website. You just can’t make this stuff up.
60% of voters believe that the implementation of Obamacare is a joke … JUST 60%?
A Fox News poll shows that 60% of voters think that the Obamacare implementation is a joke, while 30% actually believe it is going fine. Seriously, even if you like the law Democrats, there is no way that one can say that the implementation is going fine. Many believe, including former Obama White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs that some one should be fired for the disastrous implementation. That is hardly going fine. However, it is not just the implementation of Obamacare that is a joke, as Americans learn more and more about Barack Obama’s signature piece of legislation that was passed on a partisan Democrat vote by only Democrats in the House and the Senate, they will come to realize that the joke is on them.
Six voters in ten describe implementation of ObamaCare as “a joke,” and more voters than not say problems with the government’s health insurance website are so bad someone should be fired, according to a Fox News national poll.
The new poll, released Wednesday, also finds a majority continues to dislike President Obama’s signature achievement: 51 percent of voters use negative terms to describe the health care law, saying it is either “a step backward” or “disastrous.” That’s down two percentage points from 53 percent in August. On the other side, 44 percent describe ObamaCare positively, either as “wonderful” or “progress.” It was 43 percent two months ago.
Most Democrats continue to describe the health care law positively: 12 percent “wonderful” and 62 percent “progress,” while most Republicans continue to call it “a step backward” (20 percent) or “disastrous” (66 percent).
Other poll results:
- Do you approve or disapprove of the job Barack Obama is doing as president? 53% disapprove – 41% approve
- Do you favor or oppose establishing limits on the number of terms members of the U.S. Congress can serve, including your own senators and representative? 77% Favor – 18% Oppose
- And which of the following do you think best describes how Obamacare is being carried out and implemented? 60% a joke – 31% Its going fine
UPDATE I: As Americans voice their displeasure with Obamacare disastrous rollout, many Democrats like Sens. Joe Manchin and Jeanne Shaheen are jumping ship and looking for political cover. They will not be the only ones.
SNL Rips Obamacare, “Winners and Losers” … Healthcare.gov: “How could you not be ready? That’s like 1-800-Flowers getting caught off-guard by Valentines Day.”
What makes this skit on Obamacare so funny … the fact that it is the truth!!!
Even SNL could not overlook the colossal failures of the Obamacare website this week in ‘Winners & Loser.’ Skip to the 1:00 mark unless you want to hear the usual dribble of the liberal media attacking the GOP and demonizing the Tea Party. One of the Losers for the week was Obamacare and the Healthcare.gov web site for its numerous technical issues and failures. And just think, for years SNL said that they had no material on Obama to make jokes. Go figure.
“You can’t campaign on the fact that millions don’t have healthcare and then be surprised that millions don’t have healthcare. How could you not be ready? That’s like 1-800-Flowers getting caught off-guard by Valentines Day.”
SNL Mocks Obamacare: “Now that I Have Free Health Care, I Can Get Sick All the Time … Free Medicine Y’all”
With the signing up for Obamacare right around the corner, SNL takes the time to mock the train wreck known as Obamacare. The sad part of all of this is the the joke is on you America. You had an opportunity to end this nightmare by not reelecting Obama in 2012, now we are forced to have this disaster inflicted upon us.
In one of the segments of the skit a father talks about his deadbeat son and Obamacare seeing that children can now stay on their parents health care plan until they are 26:
“Wow, I am so relieved that my dumb, lazy, good for nothing son has full health insurance. We kept telling him hey idiot that you have to get a job to earn health insurance. But Mr. Obama here, he made sure my son will never have to lift a finger here to get insurance.”
- With the election over and Republicans in the background, Obama is now front and center. Anthony Wiener is in second place
Barack Obama Photo Used As Target In Dart Game At Otsego County, NY Fair … Of Course Liberals Whined and Pic was Pulled
The HuffPo is reporting that a picture of President Barack Obama was used as a target in a dart game at the Otsego County Fair in Morris, New York. Of course it did not take long before the news got out of the individuals running this game of the Obamamessiah’s likeness being used for they were asked to remove it.
Does that mean they are going to stop the Obama clown face painting booth as well?
Of course the Libs at the Huffpo were quick to blame racism and make other comments making fun of fair go’ers in update New York. Of course it would have been perfectly ok to use a likeness of GWB or Sarah Palin. Because the even-keeled Libs had no issue which a movie that promoted the assignation of Bush, but how dare there be a harmless dart game where people can throw a dart at a pic of Obama at a county fair.
Facebook - Otsego County Fair
There is no racism here folks. Having a pic of Obama to throw darts at is no different when you want your boss to participate in the pie throwing contest. Although, with how Obama administration and the IRS has gone after the Tea Party, the owners of this fair can expect audits from now until 2016, constant NSA surveillance and a Secret Service to visit.
WJAR in Cranston, R.I. Reporter Julie Tremmel Shows Everyone How to Ward Off a Bear … And Make the Rest of Us Laugh Ourselves Silly
Who knew this was how you were to ward off a bear from attacking? I don’t remember learning this exact technique while growing up. Maybe the purpose was to make the bear laugh so hard that you could run from harms way until the bear finally gets their composure.
Who knew that the best way to tame an angry bear was to make him convulse in laughter? The news team at WJAR in Cranston, R.I., doesn’t want viewers eaten in the deep, dark woods, so it put together a helpful news-you-can-use tutorial and found the perfect teacher in reporter Julie Tremmel.
How bad has it got for President Barack Obama and the IRS scandal? Even SNL could not avoid the scandal and mocked President Obama and his comments following his learning of the IRS targeting the Tea Party and other Conservative groups. Seth Meyers and Amy Poehler did their “Really!?! with Seth and Amy skit. Although they also took shots at the Tea Party, it was nothing compared to their mocking of the IRS and Barack Obama. Some of the better lines, “Really!?!, the government only keeps you around to make the DMV look good”. Wow, when even Saturday Night Live feels the obligation to make fun of a liberal president,
Houston, Barack, you got a problem.
But the money line was, “And, really Obama you found out about this scandal from TV? You found out from TV? Really? I don’t want to live in a world where you have the same sources as my aunt!”
Really!?! Mr. President, you found out about the IRS scandal from the news media, too bad the White House Counsel was told weeks ago. So you are telling us they never told you, REALL!?! Who is running the show and what do you have working for you?
In the week of April 22, the Office of the White House Counsel and its head, Kathryn Ruemmler, were told by Treasury Department attorneys that an inspector general’s report was nearing completion, the White House official said. In that conversation, Ms. Ruemmler learned that “a small number of line IRS employees had improperly scrutinized certain…organizations by using words like ‘tea party’ and ‘patriot,’ ” the official said.
Jay Leno is making Barack Obama the brunt of his jokes again. This time he compares Obama to Richard Nixon. These days it is easy to use Obama as fodder for late night show comedy. However, for many who have been on the other end of the Obama Benghazi, IRS and AP scandals are probably not laughing. So many in the MSM wanted to say that Obama was Reaganesque and Lincolnesque, to their dismay he turned out to be “Nixonian”.
“It’s been a rough week for Obama. A lot of critics are comparing President Obama to President Richard Nixon. Which is unfair. Nixon’s unemployment rate was only 5%.”
Just to prove Jay Leno correct, the weekly new unemployment claims were just announced today and they were up to 32,000 to 360,000.
The number of people who applied for new unemployment benefits surged by 32,000 to 360,000 in the week ended May 11, putting jobless claims at the highest level in a month and a half, according to the U.S. Labor Department. Economists surveyed by MarketWatch had expected claims to rise to a seasonally adjusted 330,000 from a revised 328,000 in the prior week. A Labor official said there was nothing unusual in the report and there was no evidence that reductions in federal spending under a law known as the sequester contributed to the spike.
The death of true comedy …
Legendary comic and impersonator Jonathan Winters has passed away at his home in Montecito, California at age 87. The world just got a little less funny with his passing. Jonathan Winters was simply hysterical. Remember an era of comedy that was not mean spirited, laced with profanity and witty, neither do I. But during Winters’ era it was. Winters was a comic genius who could switch in and out of character impersonations like we switch a light switch or today’s generations change their Facebook status, tweet or text. Winters inspired generations of improve comics, probably none better than Robbin Williams. And as fate would have it, Winters would later have a role on Williams’ popular TV show ‘Mork & Mindy’ VIDEO) as his son Merth. However, I remember Winters best for his role in It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World. Just priceless comedy. The gas station scene (VIDEO) with Winters and Fred Silver … just too funny. This movie just never gets old. And who can forget when Jonathon Winters was a special guest crime solving with the Scooby Doo gang (VIDEO) where he played himself, Jonathan Winters, the not so famous comedian, hahaha. We shall miss you.
Jonathan Winters, November 11, 1925 – April 11, 2013 - RIP
Mr. Winters was at his best when winging it, confounding television hosts and luckless straight men with his rapid-fire delivery of bizarre observations uttered by characters like Elwood P. Suggins, a Midwestern Everyman, or one-off creations like the woodland sprite who bounded onto Jack Paar’s late-night show and simperingly proclaimed: “I’m the voice of spring. I bring you little goodies from the forest.”
A one-man sketch factory, Mr. Winters could re-enact Hollywood movies, complete with sound effects, or create sublime comic nonsense with simple props like a pen-and-pencil set.
The unpredictable, often surreal quality of his humor had a powerful influence on later comedians like Robin Williams but made him hard to package as an entertainer. His brilliant turns as a guest on programs like “The Steve Allen Show” and “The Tonight Show” — in both the Jack Paar and Johnny Carson eras — kept him in constant demand. But a successful television series eluded him, as did a Hollywood career, despite memorable performances in films like “It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World,” “The Loved One” and “The Russians Are Coming, the Russians Are Coming.”
