According to a new WaPo/ABC poll, Obama’s approval ratings are the lowest since Richard Nixon’s. His approval is 43%. Other polls have it as low as 37%. Even Bush had a higher approval rating at the end of his fifth year in office with 47%. Every other post WWII president was over 50%.
Seventy-nine percent of those polled believe we are still in a recession. That tells you how well things are going out there. Obama is buried in scandals and the disaster that is Obamacare.
The poll shows that people have more confidence in the Republicans in Congress than the Democrats. Read more...
D student and Secretary of State John Kerry finds the notion of the North Koreans potentially unacceptable.
That’s what he told ABC’s Martha Raddatz on This Week. One would think that of the two of them, Kerry would be the more likely to know that the Norks already have nukes. It’s what they’re doing with them that concerns us at this point.
Just when we thought we couldn’t get stuck with a Secretary stupider than Hillary, we get this guy.
Someday, when he’s ready to hear it, perhaps we should tell Mr. Secretary exactly how it came to be that such a crazy and dangerous regime got nukes at all.
But not like this. I can see why so many of you think the Obamacare website debacle has to be intentional–it’s impossible to believe that anyone could be this incompetent.
You’re right in the sense that Obamacare was designed to fall apart, but not like this. It was supposed to break down later when the young and healthy failed to support the sick and elderly, driving premiums up to astronomical numbers. Higher than they are already. That would be after Obama was safely out of office and blamed on those “greedy” insurance companies. Read more...
As minimum wage workers protest, many union owned and operated, we might want to quit arguing irrelevant facts about whether it’s “fair” or not to have a minimum wage.
We need never get to that issue. There is nothing in the US Constitution that confers upon the federal government the right to establish a minimum wage. Nothing.
Liberals will try to hide behind their beloved and badly stretched out Commerce Clause which gives the government the right to “regulate” interstate commerce. Notice our Founders’ choice of words–they said “regulate”, not control. Regulate means to make regular. Read more...
JPo identifies Obama’s real agenda in making the horrendously bad deal with Iran–to delegitimatize Israel.
The Iran agreement is just the culmination of a lengthy history of delegitimizing Israel as a “warmongering, ungrateful ally”. Israel, according to the Obama administration, is forcing the US to endanger itself for the benefit of the Jewish state.
Why wasn’t the Iran accord signed a year ago, since Iran made no changes in its positions. On its face, the deal makes little sense. Read more...
Obama: Sometimes people forget I’m not running for office again.
Really? Maybe he should quit spending so much time campaigning. That would free up more time to play golf.
Secretary D Student Kerry is all aglow about the horrendously bad deal he managed to strike with Iran. Actually, a not very bright third grader could have come up with the same agreement.
To keep it simple: Iran gets to keep its 19,000 centifuges, pinkie swears to scale back on its uranium enrichment and in return, gets $7 billion in sanctions lifted.
The United States gets: nothing.
This has Kerry crowing like a rooster in a hen house. What a genius! He just lifted economic sanctions–the one thing that was actually working to slow Iran down– in exchange for nothing. Not a single word about the pastor being held hostage in Iran either. Read more...
Varney: Expect big changes to employer paid insurance policies next year: higher deductibles and much higher premiums for employees. Most especially higher deductibles.
What good is having health insurance if the deductible is so high that the insured will never be able to pay it?
That’s the difference between health insurance and health care. They’re not the same thing.
UKTelegraph: The Saudis say theiy were lied to and deceived by the Iran arms deal.
They will strike out on their own and handle their own policies toward Iran from now on.
Obama blows it with yet another ally as he coddles our mortal enemies.
Andy McCarthy confirms it: the plot is to get us onto a single payer system. Make Obamacare so unworkable, so unwieldy, so expensive that private insurance companies simply drop out and along comes the federal government to the rescue.
McCarthy, always a worthy read, does a great job of explaining the scheme behind the fraud.
Even CBS news has to admit things aren’t going so well for their guy. The president’s approval rating has sunk to just 37%. Don’t you just wonder who these thirty-sever percenters are who still think he’s doing an ok job?
And what has been Obama’s undoing? Was it his disastrous handling of Benghazi, in which four innocent American lives were lost? No, most Americans don’t have the foggiest notion who or what a Benghazi even is. How about his destructive meddling in the middle east that has created nothing but chaos and death as well as golden opportunities for Islamic terrorists? Nope, that didn’t do it. His refusal to stand with Israel? His coddling of Iran? Read more...
Stephen Hayes told Fox News that three Benghazi survivors were forced by the CIA to sign non disclosure agreements.
Let’s not forget Benghazi although we are reeling from the shock and awe of Obamacare.
According to the BBC, the normally frosty relations between Cairo and Moscow are warming up. That means a possible arms deal which could be as big as $2 billion.
Another Obama disaster in the mid east.
Passing an “if you like your plan, you can keep your plan” bill isn’t going to slay the beast known as Obamacare. It has too many tentacles that have worked their way into the system.
The government will have iron fisted control over your doctor and the way medicine is practiced.
Listen to Drs. Kristen Held and Jane Hughes, experts in Obamacare and relentless warriors for repeal, as they explain the multiple dangers inherent in Obamacare.
The only true fix for Obamacare is repeal.
How many people will Obama kill with Obamacare?
Sure, you can get free cancer screenings. But suppose you have a positive result but your private policy has been canceled and you can’t afford the outrageous deductible and premiums for Obamacare?
How many will die?
According to Betsey McCaughey writing for IBD, Obamacare provides for treatment at “community” facilities that cater to low income patients.
In other words, you may no longer have access to esteemed facilities. You’re going to the cheapest, not the best.
McCaughey also predicts that doctors will be as reluctant to treat exchange patients as they are medicare patients.
The worst CIC in the history of the republic and abuser of our troops speechified today. The applause was pretty thin.
He blathered about better treatment of our veterans–one of the only things for which he is willing to reduce funding.
But not to worry, if the VA can’t properly care for our veterans, they will have the option of Obamacare. Of course, he didn’t call it Obama care, he referred to it as “Affordable Care”, but we got the point.
Obama: We should honor our veterans.
Like he did when he threw them out of their own memorials?
Breitbart: Leno’s audience roared with approval when Cruz called Obamacare the biggest job killer.
WSJ: Obamacare web site won’t be ready by the end of November.
Identity theft problem is so bad that if you get to a site that actually works, it’s a fake– do not use it!
