Are You Kidding, Nothing Says Thanksgiving Like Pass the Turkey and Some DNC Obamacare Talking Points
YUP, nothing says Thanksgiving like some liberal relative deciding to spout off with prepared DNC Obamacare talking points at the dinner table. Seriously folks, let the BS rest for one day. How bad is it that the Obama White House and Organizing for Action feel they must send out Obama and Obamacare propaganda, so that liberal guests can ruin a Thanksgiving dinner? So be warned, if your liberal relative shows up to the table with his iPhone or iPad with this email pulled up, run, ran fast. Remind them, any more politics or Obama and its off to the small table!
Democrats are providing supporters with prep for debating “your Republican uncle” heading into the holidays.
The Democratic National Committee (DNC) set up a website Wednesday with talking points on the economy, climate change, healthcare and immigration reform to use with family members on Thanksgiving.
We can’t do anything about highway congestion, but we can make sure you have the information you need to answer a bonkers question about President Obama’s record on jobs or the perfect fact to respond to a ridiculous argument about the Affordable Care Act,” the DNC’s digital director, Matt Compton, said in a press release.
The site — yourrepublicanuncle.com — mirrors a similar page set up by Organizing for Action, the offshoot of Obama’s campaign apparatus, that gives tips on encouraging family members to sign up for health insurance through the new exchanges during the holidays.
You may also want to forewarn everyone before dinner that the closest hospital to your house that accepts Obamacare in 60 miles away.
Another day and another Obamacare delay …
If this train wreck was an injured animal we would have to do the humane thing and put it out of its misery. The Obamacare debacle continues, Obama administration announces that online enrollment for small businesses in Obamacare will be delayed by a year. Of course they did it in a Thanksgiving Day eve news dump so to lessen the media coverage and hoping Americans will be too busy eating turkey, mashed potatoes and shopping on Black Friday.
Of course this was another convenient delay until after the 2014 midterm elections. What galls me to no end is that uninsured, unaffordable healthcare is a real problem in America that needed to be addressed and Obama simply has made it a political game.
Yup, just one more year delay in online small business enrollment, that will fix it.
The Obama administration today announced a one year delay of online enrollment for small businesses looking to purchase health coverage through federal Obamacare exchanges, another high-profile setback for HealthCare.gov.
It’s the second delay for online small business enrollment, which the administration had said would begin this month.
The White House is trying to get the troubled enrollment website on track for individuals and families seeking coverage, which is a higher priority. It set this Saturday, Nov. 30, as a target date for getting HealthCare.gov working for the “vast majority” of users.
The delay of the small business exchanges comes as little surprise, as the administration had said earlier this week it would offer alternative ways for small businesses to enroll. Still, it undercuts the White House message that it’s beginning to turn around the disastrous rollout of the health care law.

House Democratic Whip Steny Hoyer Admits Democrats Knew Americans Would Not be Able to Keep Their Current Health Care Plans Under Obamacare … #You Lie
HEY AMERICA … IT WASN’T JUST OBAMA WHO LIED TO YOU, IT WAS THE ENTIRE DEMOCRAT PARTY THAT MISLEAD YOU ON OBAMACARE!!!
From the National Review Online, House Demorat Whip Steny the Hoyer (MD 5th District) admitted that Democrats knew that Americans would lose their current healthcare plans under Obamacare even as President Barack Obama, Democrats and their minions repeatedly gave a quite different message to “We the People”. It was Barack Obama who continually said over and over and over … If you like your healthcare plan, you can keep your healthcare plan. period! Basically, the Democrat party that passed Obamacare on a purely partisan vote and rammed Obamacare down the throats of Americans knew that the tag line and talking points were a complete and total lie. Hot Air has much, much more on the liars.
“If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor, period! If you like your healthcare plan, you can keep your healthcare plan. period!”
“No one will take it away, no matter what.”
House Democratic Whip Steny Hoyer conceded to reporters today that Democrats knew people would not be able to keep their current health care plans under Obamacare and expressed qualified contrition for President Obama’s repeated vows to the contrary.
“We knew that there would be some policies that would not qualify and therefore people would be required to get more extensive coverage,” Hoyer said in response to a question from National Review.
Asked by another reporter how repeated statements by Obama to the contrary weren’t “misleading,” Hoyer said “I don’t think the message was wrong. I think the message was accurate. It was not precise enough…[it] should have been caveated with – ‘assuming you have a policy that in fact does do what the bill is designed to do.’”
Oh what tangled webs we weave, when we practice to deceive. Democrats are in a tough place as they not only must attempt to defend Obama’s promises of being able to keep your insurance under Obamacare, but know being questioned as to whether they knew that Americans would lose their coverage, and when. Democrats are going to have a hell of a time getting out of this one as they have been caught in a lie. Either you admit you lied or you say, I never read the bill I signed that forced this upon the American people, Democrats and Republicans alike. Although Democrat Majority Leader Harry the Reid took a different tack. The true believer Reid said President Obama “didn’t say anything that was wrong. That’s true.” Really?
Johnson’s bill, which will be introduced on Wednesday, could put Democrats in a tough spot. Asked Tuesday to explain the news that millions of Americans were losing their insurance policies, contrary to the president’s promise, Senate Democrats responded with a mixture of denials, evasions, and historical revisionism. Nearly all refused to say if they opposed Johnson’s bill.
Senator Jeanne Shaheen of New Hampshire expressed shock that so many Americans are losing their current plans. “We knew that they would need to sign up again, but obviously I don’t think anybody thought people would be kicked off their health insurance plan,” said Shaheen, who refused to say if Americans should be able to keep the plans they had in 2013.
“He didn’t say anything wrong,” Senate majority leader Harry Reid said when asked about Obama’s promise. “That was true.”
According to Senator Mary Landrieu of Louisiana, Democrats had only promised that Americans could keep their insurance if it was “good insurance.”
“We said when we passed that, ‘If you had insurance that was good insurance that you wanted to keep it, you could keep it,’” Landrieu said.
She declined to say if she would support a measure to let Americans keep the plans they had in 2013. “I haven’t looked at it specifically,” Landrieu said.
“We can look at that,” said Bob Casey of Pennsylvania. “That’s something we can look at.”
It would appear that Democrats are going to try and pull a Bill Clinton and contort their words to create a new talking point. With Slick Willy, “It all depends on what is, is.” As stated at the Lonely Conservative, the new Democrat talking point will be “You Can Keep Your Plan If It’s ‘Good’ Insurance”. Hmm, how do you think that would have played out in the passage of the bill and the run up to the 2012 presidential election? The comment would have been overshadowed by the follow up question of what is considered a “good” insurance and who decides that? With the millions that have lost their insurance and the millions more that will do so, how do you think that would have changed the election results? I guess we now know why Obama and Democrats lied, eh?
Hold the phone, is it possible that this scandal of lying to the American people is so bad that even the MSM has to catch up and report on the story? It appears that way. The MSM in a face-saving effort to appear to be “fair & balanced” is going after Obama and his administration on this one. Of course they were carrying the water for Obama during his reelection, now they feel the need to have some semblance of credibility.
OUCH … The Washington Post Gives Barack Obama 4 Pinocchio’s for His Claims that he called Benghazi an ‘Act of Terrorism’
BARACK OBAMA … YOU LIE!!!
“The day after it happened, I acknowledged that this was an act of terrorism.” (President Obama and Prime Minister David Cameron new conference 5/13/13)
WOW, the Washington Post Fact Checker calls President Barack Obama a liar and gives him 4 Pinocchio’s for his claims that he called the Benghazi an “Act of Terror” following the attack that left four American dead, including Ambassador Chris Stevens. Barack Obama had the audacity yesterday to say while answering a question on Benghazi that he called Benghazi a terror attack. Nothing could be further from the truth and even the left-leaning WAPO is calling Obama on it. As Powerline opines, Obama Bobs and Weaves on Benghazi. However, this rope-a-dope is more dope than rope. Barack Obama is twisting in the wind as he has lost all credibility.
The only one who has politicized Benghazi for their political gain has been The One
— President Obama, remarks at a news conference, May 13, 2013 Once again, it appears that we must parse a few presidential words. We went through this question at length during the 2012 election, but perhaps a refresher course is in order.
Notably, during a debate with Republican nominee Mitt Romney, President Obama said that he immediately told the American people that the killing of the U.S. ambassador and three other Americans in Libya “was an act of terror.” But now he says he called it “an act of terrorism.”
Some readers may object to this continuing focus on words, but presidential aides spend a lot of time on words. Words have consequences. Is there a difference between “act of terror” and “act of terrorism”?
Left Kirsten Powers stated yesterday about the Obama’s Benghazi Press Conference: “I’m Just Going to Call Them Lies Because They’re Lies” … “Nobody Thought He Called It a Terrorist Attack”
CNN’s Gloria Borger Acknowldges Benghazi Talking Points “Were Edited to the Point of Inaccuracy” … Chris Cuomo: “Safe to Say this Goes Beyond Partisan Picking”
Add another Left-leaning main stream media outlet to those that are questioning the Barack Obama administration and the edited Benghazi terror attack talking points.
First MSNBC and now CNN is coming out against the Obama administration for editing the Benghazi talking points, in the aftermath of the terror attack that left four Americans dead, to the point where the events that took place were untrue. In a CNN interview between Chris Cuomo and Chief political analyst Gloria Borger, neither had anything good to say about the 12 edited versions of the Benghazi talking points using such words as “cover-up” and “whitewash”. Gloria Borger said, the Obama Administration’s Benghazi talking points were “edited to the point of inaccuracy” and the question is “was it a cover-up or whitewash”. She would later say that the talking points were so edited that by the end, they did not even resemble the truth. The most amazing comment may have come from Chris Cuomo when he stated, “it’s safe to say that this goes beyond partisan picking.” Did the LEFT just hear that? One of your own is saying that the GOP is not acting in a partisan manner. CNN is basically saying that the Obama administration played partisan politics for his reelection bid when four Americans died. Are you kidding, Ambassador Chris Stevens, Sean Smith, Glen Doherty and Tyrone S. Woods were killed by terrorist and the Obama WH edited what occurred to the point it was a false narrative. We lost lives and needed to know what happened and Team Obama was more interested in talking points that fit his reelection. Cuomo called it unforgivable.
Maybe former Arkansas Governor Mike Hukabee was correct when he said during his radio show, President Obama “will not fill out his full term” because he was complicit in a “cover-up” surrounding the attack that killed Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans in Benghazi, Libya.
GLORIA BORGER: What we see in this process is that these talking points were edited to the point of inaccuracy. The question is, is it a cover-up? Is it a whitewash? We don’t know the answer to that.
CHRIS CUOMO: I know. And you took my question. That’s exactly what I was going to ask you. Right? Because that’s what this gets to, 12. What’s the context? It sounds like a lot, but we have to know the nature and purpose of what those changes were.
GLORIA BORGER: So here’s the context. Over at the CIA they’re looking at some of these points, which include mention of Al Qaeda. And there’s a sense from some at the CIA, you know what, we don’t want to tip anybody that we’re investigating Al Qaeda on this, so let’s take out some of the references to Al Qaeda. What the CIA left in, apparently, was this sort of broader context of Al Qaeda in Benghazi in that part of the world. Those were eventually edited out. And there is an e-mail obtained by ABC news from someone at the State Department which asks, why should we leave that in because “it could be abused by members of Congress to beat up the State Department for not paying attention to warnings.” So clearly from a State Department official asking the question, why are we going to give members of Congress information, don’t forget in an election year, which they could turn around and beat us up with. And that’s how you see in evolving. Everybody’s got a different reason for editing it. And they edit it down to something that’s totally, turns out to be in fact untrue.
