    Analogy’s wrong, the Hindenberg was nobody’s fault. Lisa needs one of the Soviet ICBMs that were designed to kill milllions of Americans but blew up on the launchpad.

    “I’ll be the first to tell you, the website launch was rockier than we would have liked,” said Sebelius, a Cincinnati native.—————————————————————-
    No ship Sherlock!
    You “only” had 3 years to get ready for the launch.
    Imagine if a company took 3 years to launch its website?
    AND it didn’t even work? Heads would roll.
    BUT this is the big-government ideal pushed onto us by O and the Democrats, so nothing will happen and billions more will be wasted.

    Nuttin about the Government Shut Down? Nuttin about the international fiscal crisis barely avoided? Nuttin about who started, implemented and FOLDED the Government Shut Down? You could have drawn this RepubliCon daydream last month, Lisa, last YEAR. What about all those current events deadlines you Toonists are supposedly to dealing with? Not relevant in Orange County, CA?

    - The site was so popular it crashed; yeah, real failure right there; oh, wait.
    .
    - Anyway, Obamacare will be replaced when it evolves into Medicare-for-All. In the mean time, enjoy not being denied coverage over pre-existing conditions, and genuine health care exchanges.

    The New York Times take is that, had the Republicans passed the clean CR, all the news would have been about the problems with the ACA computer systems. Instead, the modest inconveniences of the shutdown filled the front pages, and the problems with the ACA computers were dismissed as normal start-up problems, a small price to pay for affordable healthcare. If true, the Republicans have done all they can to help smooth the transition into the ACA.

    The gov’t can’t even fix the computer glitches keeping hundreds of thousands of veterans and their families from getting their benefits. I’m really with Jon Stewart on this one. How can an Administration that is one of the most tech savvy to date fail to make sure the quality controls for the VA and his signature program not be just as good as his election campaigns? Some glitches are to be expected and quickly resolved, but the problems veterans are encountering with their VA benefits AND now the ACA registration is unprofessional and negligent. It’s not a Hindenburg, but it looks like an Exxon Valdez. Unnecessary and very very messy.
    Respectfully,

    Except the administration is “tech savvy” the way a sixteen year old girl is: They can text, twitter, and what-not but they haven’t got a clue how any of the stuff that actually makes those programs work functions.
    Obama and his minions know ZERO about the actual technology they use. That is why their roll out of Obamacare was an utter and complete disaster.

    um no, the problem is not really the web site. Try no one is buying! Those that did manage to sign up will not buy.

    Good point! Obama knows how to pay for fake followers on Twitter. Obama knows how to play the Sal Alenkey card in the modern world but to actually have the knowledge to run anything, well he did not build it. He only knows how to use it and exploit it. “leadership”? Well he made sure the election was won before he had them pay for the code.

    I think the main difference is that President Obama had dictatorial control over his campaign or over the person directly responsible for the campaign’s computer operations. With the Federal government he has to deal with the republicans, the Democrats, multiple people in the VA and even though he is the President, he does not have unilateral control. There is a BIG difference.

    “Except the administration is “tech savvy” the way a sixteen year old girl is: They can text, twitter, and what-not but they haven’t got a clue how any of the stuff that actually makes those programs work functions.”
    I believe that you are absolutely correct.
    However…
    “Obama and his minions know ZERO about the actual technology they use. That is why their roll out of Obamacare was an utter and complete disaster.”
    I believe the healthcare exchanges were set up by a private company contracted to the government. It has been reported that the servers were set up to accommodate 50,000 users at one time, each hour or some such section of measurement. One can credibly argue that the Administration should have anticipated a great deal of interest in the beginning and had capacity to handle that traffic but did not. However to say the system did not work and was “an utter and complete disaster” is nothing more than an ad hominem of partisan proportions and seriously undermines any credibility you may have had.

    @Harleyquinn

    Care to provide a non=partisan, factual citation of your claim? I think many here would be very interested to research and consider your claim.
