Over the past few weeks, depending on where you sit on the political school bus, you’ve probably either had (a) a stream of guilty “I told you so” happiness; or (b) a dreadful, stomach-sinking horror while watching Obamacare, the president’s oft-labeled “signature achievement,” make its national debut.

It has been, in short, an epic disaster. It is a drunken, hair-mussed, ill-shod debutante tripping and tumbling down one of those long, open, curving, red-carpeted staircases, and then, at the bottom, plowing directly through a gaggle of gasping society ladies.

And that was just the website. Add the alarming swath of health care cancellations across the country, and you’ve got the boozed-up debutante struggling to her feet, swigging from a whiskey bottle at the bar, and inexplicably punching her great-grandmother’s sweet best friend Trudy in the face.

But here’s what’s weird about the whole thing: Despite watching this debacle from the beginning, and despite a clear viewing of the debutante’s utter inability to operate in the real world, many of the gasping society ladies are not horrified. They are in denial. Millions of people losing health plans, these grandees intone, is actually a good thing -- and Obamacare, if we just give it a chance, is a great thing.

NEVER WILL HAPPEN ! YING YANG......GOOD-EVIL........THE UNIVERSE HAS TO HAVE A BALANCE AND WHERE THERE IS GOOD THE OPPOSITE HAS TO EXIST THUS LIBERALISM WHICH IS EVIL WILL ALWAYS EXIST. LIBERALS BELIEVE IT'S OK TO MURDER THE ALMOST BORN CHILDREN BY ABORTION. LIBERALISM FEELS IT'S OK FOR A MAN TO STICK HIS STICK IN ANOTHER MAN'S ANAL. DO I NEED TO KEEP GOING ?  THEY ARE SICK AND PERVERTED AND REPRESENT SATAN.   LIBERALS WILL NEVER IMPLODE BUT MAYBE GOOD PEOPLE WILL TAKE HEED TO THEIR REAL AGENDA'S AND VOTE DIFFERENTLY IN 2014 AND 2016

We, as the seniors and in most cases are TPers can do a lot toward changing the minds of some, not all, of the young people.  I intentionally go to some of these Liberal sites, such as Daily Beast, and tell these people who are the TPers, many don't even know who we are, only what they have heard from the libs.

Good job Ray. I think i will start going to those sights also.  It is time we started our own campaign of truth.

Way too much Obama kool-aid !!!!!!  Remember history, Hitler came to an end, Stalin also, the Shah, the USSR to name a few , so Obama will be next !!!!

Yes, he will be next.  But, when the USSR fell, communism did not die with it.  Fascism, did not die with hitler.   We (I hope) will win his battle over tyrrany and liberal/socialism/communism but, we must start a massive campaign for our country's survival.

I am ready David! We may have waited too long!

I knew not to vote for Obummer from his time of

being senator in Chicago! What a pant load!

Its been 5 years! We might not get it done in time!

He was destined to destroy America all the time and

Congress did nothing! I hope he is gone soon!!!!!!!!!

You are describing mindless people. They do not read, do not want to know what and why of it all and will vote as to how they "feel"about an individual and not for who they are or what they have done and what they believe and want to do. It is a lot of time and effort to stay reasonably informed and very hard work to stay well informed armed with facts and truth. Many people vote the same as their husband or a dear friend who seems to know everything. That is dumb trust.

Just watching some of my well-educated friends come to grips with what has happened , gives me some hope. BUT IF NOTHING COMES OF IT THEN......REVOLUTION !!

Revolution. maybe if necessary.

The way things are going , you know the Pres. is ready for it, and he will declare marshal law.  But remember our forefathers did the same thing and got rid of King George. I admit the stakes are higher now with the weapons technology , BUT, he won't totally use them because then he would rule a land with no subjects to bully !!!!! I'd rather die fighting for my country then being a slave to this King !!!!

Please do not print king with a capital K! This animal Obama is

not worthy of that title! He is a nobody that got elected through

fraud! Congress does not have the balls to impeach him! The

Democrats are no better than Obama! I don't even think Obama

is legally the President! It should be easy to impeach him!

Maybe Congress is the real problem for doing nothing!

Any thoughts on this folks?

ALERT ALERT

Fact Check:   'Joe Biden Claims ‘We Didn’t Lock People Up In Cages’

CLAIM: Former Vice President Joe Biden claimed, on immigration: “We didn’t lock people up in cages.”

VERDICT: FALSE. The “cages” were built by the Obama-Biden administration.

Univision moderator Jorge Ramos asked Biden at the third Democrat debate at Texas Southern University in Houston, Texas, why Latinos should trust him after the Obama administration continued deporting “undocumented immigrants.”

Biden claimed that the Obama administration’s policies were more humane than those of President Donald Trump: “We didn’t lock people up in cages,” he said.

In fact, the “cages” were built by the Obama administration to deal with a surge of unaccompanied minors who crossed the border illegally in 2014.

Originally, the Obama administration was “warehousing” children — literally — in overwhelmed Border Patrol facilities. Breitbart News broke the story of the surge, which was partly triggered by Obama’s policy of allowing illegal alien children who entered the country as minors to stay in the country (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA).

The above photo was published by the Associated Press in June 2014, and the photo below is of Obama’s Secretary of Homeland Security, Jeh Johnson, touring a Border Patrol facility with “cages.”

The “cages” are chain-link enclosures in Border Patrol processing facilities that are meant to protect children from adults in custody. They are not permanent accommodations.

In mid-2018, as the Trump administration began enforcing a “zero tolerance” policy that stopped the “catch-and-release” policy of letting illegal aliens go after they were arrested. Detaining adults and children meant that children had to be processed separately; the enclosures prevented adults from harming children.

As Breitbart News reported at the time, children were not housed in “cages.” They were processed and then taken to shelters, where they were given medical care, toiletries, education, recreation, and counseling, and where staff attempted to find relatives or sponsors to whom they could be released.

Democrats began tweeting images of “kids in cages” to condemn the Trump administration. Journalists, too, shared those images.

One problem: they were taken during the Obama administration.

Public outrage at the images led President Trump to end the policy, and require families to be detained together.

Democrats keep repeating the mistake, however: in July, they had to delete a tweet that used an image from the Obama era and cited the “inhumane treatment” of children by the Trump administration.

Republicans argue that not detaining illegal aliens is actually the cruel policy, because it encourages migrants to undertake a dangerous journey, often guided by cartels and smugglers.

As Breitbart News’ Alana Mastrangelo noted recently:

But what’s worse than “cages,” however, are reports of migrant children also being handed over to human traffickers during the Obama administration — while Biden was vice president — according to the New York Times. Between October 2013 and July 2015 alone, nearly 80,000 unaccompanied children from Central American countries were detained by U.S. authorities.

It remains unclear how many of the tens of thousands of children were handed over to human traffickers — including sex traffickers — during that span of nearly two years, as those cases are reportedly not tracked.

“Others were ransomed by the very smugglers to whom their families paid thousands of dollars to sneak them into the United States,” reported the New York Times in 2015, during Obama’s presidency and Biden’s vice presidency. “Some lost limbs during the journey or found themselves sold into sexual slavery.”

Biden told voters in South Carolina last month that he would close all border detention facilities, guaranteeing that the migrant flow would continue.
