Is It Possible The Obamacare Website is Fixed At The End of November? It Depends on What The Meaning Of “Is” Is

November 11, 2013

No worries. The website that is a key component for Obamacare will be ready for prime time by Nov. 30. In fact, as Health and Human Service Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said on Wednesday, the site is already able to handle “17,000 registrants per hour … with almost no errors.”

Unfortunately, a little while later, Sebelius’ optimism appeared to be undercut by one of her own employees. Julie Bataille, spokesperson with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, or CMS, said that “the site is performing slowly” and that many users were having problems.

Can the Obamacare website really be fixed by the end of this month? Or are the latest sunny forecasts another prelude to a storm?

It depends on what the meaning of the word “is” is .


Clinton Part 2 Obama Pushing Toxic Mortgages Thought That Ship Had Sailed

May 12, 2011

Community activists in St. Louis became concerned a couple of years ago that local banks weren’t offering credit to the city’s poor and African American residents. So they formed a group called the St. Louis Equal Housing and Community Reinvestment Alliance and began writing complaint letters to federal regulators.Lawyers and bank consultants say regulators and the Obama Administration are scrutinizing financial institutions for a practice that last drew attention before the rise of subprime lending: redlining. “We are using every tool in our arsenal to combat lending discrimination,” Thomas E. Perez, the assistant attorney general for the Civil Rights Div., told a conference of community development advocates in Washington in April.

Bank lobbyists say the stepped-up government scrutiny could backfire if financial institutions decide to shrink their operations rather than yield to pressure to do business in areas that don’t make sense for them.

Feds, Obama, and new and improved ACORN  once again leaning on banks to offer risky loans.  Thought that ship had sailed.


Obama Overturns Clintons Don’t Ask Don’t Tell In The Military, Obama Re-Engineers Clintons Social Engineering, Here Comes The Claims

December 22, 2010

The Senate Saturday voted to end a longstanding ban on gay troops serving openly in the US armed services – a move Democrats compare to President Truman’s ending the ban on racial segregation in the military in 1948.

“It is time to close this chapter in our history,” said President Obama in a statement.

Obama rolls back DADT implemented by Bill Clinton in 1993. Re-engineering so that military law and civilian law meet, will be a claims nightmare.

Slick Willie Called In To Help Jr. Hold The Teleprompter

December 10, 2010

“I have a general rule,” Clinton said, “which is that whatever he asked me about my advice, and whatever I say should become public only if he decides to make it public.” Obama didn’t provide that permission, saying: “I’ve been keeping the First Lady waiting for about half an hour, so I’m going to take off.”

The current president left it to Gibbs to decide when Clinton’s questioning would be cut off.

Yeah, right …

Gibbs couldn’t cut off Clinton, and neither could Clinton’s own aide. Only Clinton could stop Clinton.

The former president spoke about credit markets and Haiti and principled compromise and structural deficits.

 President Clinton steals the stage from O. Slick Willie shows Jr how its done, hold the teleprompter.

Queen Oprah Parties With Obama, Maybe Looking For A Presidential Appointment

August 6, 2010

CHICAGO (AFP) – Television talk show queen Oprah Winfrey was among the well-wishers for President Barack Obama’s 49th birthday party on Wednesday.

Winfrey — considered one of the most influential and wealthiest celebrities and a longtime Obama supporter — joined other friends of the president for a three-hour dinner at a north side Chicago eatery.

Journalists traveling with the president said the party also included Gayle King, an editor for Winfrey’s magazine “O” and longtime friends Eric Whittaker, Marty Nesbitt, and Valerie Jarrett.

The president smiled and waved to a crowd of about 75 people who had been waiting nearby for hours and cheered as he walked to an awaiting vehicle that took him to his home on Chicago’s south side.

The president celebrated his birthday with friends, but without his family: First Lady Michelle Obama is in Spain with daughter Sasha, while the older of the two Obama girls, Malia, is at summer camp.

Maybe The O is talking to the  O about a Presidential appointment as her television ratings plummet.. Hillary better watch her back..




Mission Accomplished..Operation Ass Kiss

May 28, 2010

Bill Clinton is so bitter about Barack Obama’s victory over his wife Hillary that he has told friends the Democratic nominee will have to beg for his wholehearted support.Mr Obama is expected to speak to Mr Clinton for the first time since he won the nomination in the next few days, but campaign insiders say that the former president’s future campaign role is a “sticking point” in peace talks with Mrs Clinton’s aides.

The Telegraph has learned that the former president’s rage is still so great that even loyal allies are shocked by his patronising attitude to Mr Obama, and believe that he risks damaging his own reputation by his intransigence.

A senior Democrat who worked for Mr Clinton has revealed that he recently told friends Mr Obama could “kiss my ass” in return for his support.

He’s saying he’s not going to reach out, that Obama has to come to him. One person told me that Bill said Obama would have to quote kiss my ass close quote, if he wants his support

Mission Accomplished..

According to the sources, White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel asked Clinton and his longtime adviser, lawyer Doug Band, to talk to Sestak about the race. It’s unclear right now whether the White House will say that Clinton was asked to suggest specific administration positions for Sestak, whether Clinton floated positions on his own, whether Clinton discussed other options not related to the adminstration, or whether employment even came up at all in the talks.

But the news that Clinton is at the center of this whole story is noteworthy on its own because of the former president’s stature, and underscores how heavily invested the White House was in dissuading Sestak from running.

Mission Ass Kiss Accomplished..

Bill Clinton Sends Out Mass Email for Hookup

May 13, 2010

There are many ways to pay off campaign debts — cajoling phone calls, begging letters — but Bill Clinton believes that he has come up with a better method to wipe out the financial obligations outstanding from his wife’s failed presidential bid.

He is raffling himself. In an e-mail sent to millions of people who supported Hillary Clinton’s White House campaign, the former President asks: “How would you like the chance to come up to New York and spend the day with me?” For those who would like the One-Day-With-Bill prize, an online donation of as little as $5  will buy them the chance.

By 2007, seven years after leaving the White House, the Clintons had earned a combined $109 million  through speaking engagements and bestselling memoirs. Even so, apparently they would prefer American voters to settle Mrs Clinton’s remaining $771,000 debt rather than paying it themselves.

“Hillary’s campaign still has a few vestiges of debt that I know she would like to see paid in full. Will you reach out today to help Hillary this one last time?” Mr Clinton asks. In her marathon battle against Barack Obama Mrs Clinton’s debts peaked at $25.2 million. More than $13 million of that she lent to her own campaign — a huge sum that she will never recoup.

This is the second time in a year that Mr Clinton has offered himself as a lottery prize to whittle down his wife’s debt, something that makes some of their supporters cringe. As Secretary of State she is barred from raising money herself to pay it off.

Clintons poll numbers go up in Nigerian Internet scammers precincts….Bubbalicious..You can take the Clintons out of Walmart but can’t take Walmart out of the Clintons.. A Lewinski not included..
