    No, not “do over.” Try, cancel the entire miserable, failed concept. As has been pointed out: “Putting things in perspective: March 21st 2010 to October 1 2013 is 3 years, 6
    months, 10 days. December 7, 1941 to May 8, 1945 is 3 years, 5 months, 1 day. What this means is that in the time we were attacked at Pearl Harbor to the day Germany surrendered is not enough time for this progressive federal government to build a working webpage. Mobilization of millions, building tens of thousands of tanks, planes, jeeps, subs, cruisers, destroyers, torpedoes, millions upon millions of guns, bombs, ammo, etc. Turning the tide in North Africa, Invading Italy, D-Day, Battle of the Bulge, Race to Berlin – all while we were also fighting the Japanese in the Pacific!! And in that amount of time – this administration can’t build a working webpage.”

    All the good Tea types like Stantis say there is irrefutable proof that the ACA is a total, irremediable disaster.


    Meanwhile, the Obamabots say they also have irrefutable proof that the ACA will soon provide affordable care to all Americans, 44,000 of whom die every year from easily treatable conditions because they can’t afford adequate healthcare. Obviously, according to the Obamabots, a few minor glitches were to be expected, but they will soon be ironed out, and the final result will be a huge improvement: better healthcare for all Americans while saving the government money!


    Obviously, both can’t be right.


    Nor does either side care if they’re really right or wrong, all they care about is what they will be able to convince voters to believe in November, ’14.


    Fortunately, 95% of Americans are covered by group policies, Medicare, or Medicaid, and have no need to fight the ACA, or even to look at it for themselves. So the Fox News types will believe the Tea types, the Obamabot MSM viewers will believe the Obamabot MSM, and the net result is that the ’14 House is now a 50/50 proposition.


    (Had the House skipped the shutdown/slimdown and let the ACA computer problems fill the October airwaves, the House would now be an almost certain win for the Republicans.)

    Half-time’s the better way to say it. The game’s not over.

    No one I know who is now able to get health insurance (I’m a musician, I know a LOT of independent contractors) thinks of Obama as the Grinch who stole Christmas. This is the best thing done by the government for a dozen years. If the Republicans try to revoke the ability for independent people to purchase health insurance on a private market, there will be Hell to pay.

    Well put. But I think (hope) is this will go beyond your well-deserved cynicism. It took 5 years but the brilliance that is the promise of hope & change and a new New Deal is finally starting to wear off. His fellow Dems are turning on him, the people who voted for him are turning on him, and because ACA was passed almost exactly on party lines, the Dems are getting shellacked the media is turning on both.

    This isn’t vicar for the man, it’s the ideals he represents. Obama has proven that given enough time and money, the government will just squander more time and money. More and more Americans are finding stock in the Tea Party: as many [as] 42% say their views come closest to those of the average Tea Party member instead – Rasmussen, Oct 2013.

    If conservatives don’t squander it, work slowly and methodically, stay on message and don’t try to hit people over the head with extreme social views, I think there’s a real chance for 2014 to open the doors for true smaller government conservatism.

    Now my cynicism comes into play: we need real conservatives, not RINOs, if we’re going to truly reduce government spending. Boehner is just as bad is Reed. Those that are beholden to large lobbyists or corporations or just interested in the next election need to leave. At least liberals, for the most part, practice what they preach. I agree with the liberal pundits like Chris Matthews who say that if Republicans own the house and the white house, like they did 10 years ago, and don’t do anything to fix healthcare or the our social safety nets, then they’re worse than Obama. Doing nothing at all is worse than at least trying something.

    This is a play on the Harlem Globetrotter who pulled the entire basketball goal on himself.

    Your forget that the Red Army was pushing Germany on the Eastern Front, which drew millions of troops away from the Western Front.

    However, point taken and I wholeheartedly agree.

    Hmm, I’m reminded, thinking down the road a few years, of all the TEA party folks screaming “Keep the Government out of my Medicare!”
