I have a favor to ask of President Obama. As an American citizen, I assume I have that right because as a taxpayer, I pay his salary. So here goes…
Mr. President, please stop campaigning!
I will readily admit that I didn’t vote for then Senator Obama in 2008 because I disagreed with his positions, and found him to be both too shallow and too inexperienced to serve as president. And after his disastrous first term, I sure didn’t vote for him in 2012.
But the point remains that he is our duly-elected president. Unless fraud was committed on a grand and unprecedented scale, Mr. Obama won fairly and squarely both times.
Which is why I scratch my head every time I see President Obama out on the campaign trail, delivering one canned stump speech after another.
“Our friends don’t respect us and our enemies don’t fear us.”
With those words, former Vice President Dick Cheney summed up the Obama administration’s disastrous foreign policy.
However, Cheney’s scathing analysis remains at odds with President Obama’s own self-assessment. In his address to the United Nations General Assembly on September 25th, Mr. Obama declared that the world is “more stable than it was five years ago.”
Which begs the question: is President Obama delusional? Or is he simply so narcissistic – or naïve – that he believes by declaring the world to be safer, it simply becomes so?
The Department of Banking and Insurance (DOBI) won’t help Barack Obama lie to the American people.
That’s the true effect of yesterday’s announcement by the Christie Administration that it’ll permit insurance companies to consider, on their own, whether to reinstate 800,000 cancelled New Jersey health insurance policies that didn’t comply with the Affordable Care Act’s mountain of silly, costly mandates.
A rare victory for the free market!
Ironically, as we’ve discussed before here at Save Jersey, it’s unlikely that most of these plans could’ve been reinstated even if DOBI agreed to act like Barack Obama’s heavy and tried to coerce the insurance industry’s compliance with POTUS’s executive order. He wasn’t trying to be generous, folks! The clear aim of Obama’s desperate move is to shift the blame for dropped coverage from Obamacare to the evil insurance companies for stubbornly refusing to comply with his 1-year health plan reprieve.
In other words, it’s a crude, transparent attempt to set up a scapegoat to cover for the massive lie that he kinda-sorta apologized for… having been caught.
Kudos to CJC for refusing to go along with him and it on this particular point.
Echoing his friend Frank “Monkey Court” Pallone‘s talking points, Obama also says most people won’t want to, anyway, and that anyone who’s had an individual policy canceled to look at what’s available at HealthCare.gov before they look to reinstate their old policy.
This guy is a walking book of contradictions!
Roughly 85% of Americans have insurance. Out of a population of approximately 317 million, about 11 million people have policies on the individual market.
Out of that 11 million, at least 4.2 million Americans have been sent cancellation notices by their insurers. People who were kicked off of a plan they liked and could afford are now facing higher premiums and deductibles.
Even before President Obama was elected in 2008 we tried to caution people about him.
We pointed out all of the early warning signs: He was dreadfully inexperienced; he seemed isolated and detached from ordinary people; he had a “smartest-guy-in-the-room” attitude; he surrounded himself with Chicago cronies and sycophants; he didn’t bother to solicit a broad-range of views; he could be stubborn and officious; at times he seemed downright lazy; his ideas were bad for the country.
We tried to bring these observations to the fore.
We really tried.
We were so persistent because we love our country. We love America.
We didn’t hesitate to speak up again and again because that’s the role that active, caring citizens must play — that’s what we need to do to preserve and perpetuate freedom and democracy.
In the process, we were yelled at, maligned, condescended and dismissed more than once by Obama-supporters and sympathizers who simply didn’t want to hear what we had to say.
The federal government hires a Canadian contractor for hundreds of millions of dollars to design the Healthcare.gov web page. CGI Federal secured a contract worth a total of $93.7 million, with a base value at $55.7 million. The company reportedly has been paid nearly $200 million to date, with the potential value of the contract reaching $292 million.
The multi-million dollar site crashes the first day out; now Obama hires the ‘best and brightest’ techies to fix what should have been fixed from the beginning. Where were the best and the brightest when they were building it?
Then Obama blames the crash on an overload because so many people were signing up.
My question: how do we, the taxpayers, get our money back, and how much are we presently paying the ‘best and brightest’ techies to fix the fiasco, and again, why weren’t they hired in the first place?
Which lobbyist got paid to get CGI the contract? Follow the money…
Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius has got some ‘splainin’ to do Lucy.
Not planning on voting tomorrow because you don’t “like” Steve Lonegan, Save Jerseyans?
That’s nice. But you should know that President Obama and his flunkies are showing up regardless of whether you’re there; he cut this web video on Monday to help the campaign GOTV efforts of Cory Booker (D-Twitter):
The best part of the video: when POTUS declares that Cory Booker is a “leader” with “uncommon character.” If that was supposed to be a joke, Mr. President, then you should know that we’re not laughing.
