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.

I, for one think you are dead right on!   But I really don't see where K for king has absolutely anything to do with Obama.  He is no king ... unless maybe the 1. king  of liars or 2. king of Cheaters or 3. king  deceiver!

I heard part of his recent speech, what the hell was he on, couldn't understand that gibberish, This is the president of the UNITED STATES.  He has his finger on  the button.  OMG He should be locked away in a mad house. Drug test all of the 535 nuts.

In e-mails to the dear leader , I've told him that he needed to be seriously DRUG TESTED !!!! But I also agree with you that the whole Congress should be tested too !!!!

the Question is not whether liberalism will implode or continue there will always be something politically left of center as well as something politically right of center, rather the question should be whether PUNITIVE LIBERALISM WILL CONTINUE as it has for nearly 50 years since JFK'S assassination!!??  also this current liberalism you allude too is actually closer to being outright fascism! Obama will continue to lie and use whatever means necessary to achieve an end a true Marxist socialist in an empty suit. I fear the only way to stop the liberal Obama cultists whose fascism is the political currency and mindset of this administration-the only way to stop any of that is stop Obama as otherwise all of it and more will continue

Evan,

I'm sure that obama is way past the socialist stage in his political beliefs.

I wish, I could say that liberlism will die. But, as long as it has been taught in our schools, and as long as there are  people that want to leech off others for a living.  Liberalism will be a fight for us the rest of our lives.  Hopefully, we can educate our young and guide them towards self suffiency and have the stamina to keep  up the fight. You and I know that socialism fails every time it is tried, but the liberals(communists) believe that it just hasn't been implemented in the right way. My wish is that the young folks among us will see this tragedy and learn a great lesson from it.  But, alas it will have to be a cataclismic history lesson before they get it.

Not until JESUS CHRIST separates the sheep from the goats.

David, totally agree and it would take us no less than 15 years, that is assuming we could totally take over the education systems of every state within the next couple of years.  We have to be realistic and God knows how long, but I do have some hope because we finally have the people waking up to where the problem is and what it will take.  Now, just how many parents will follow through, I don't know and I'm 70 with days that are numbered and will not be able to fight these people much longer.

the libs are here to stay, just like the communist of the 50's and 60's, just like the maoist, the Marxist...and all the rest of them. their faces change, and their methods remain the same, only with different name tags, and with the same lies. the most freaky thing is that there are always the believers.....no matter how the progressive movement fails every single time, we always have generation after generation of those who believe that freedom and liberty is wrong, and government control is good. the graves of those fighting tyranny, are buried all over the world, but the dictators and freedom haters, never end. all over the world at any one time there are 40 to 100 conflicts, that go on constantly, and the majority of these conflicts are because of tyrannical leaders, religious zealots..and the take over of people, using power and control. today is no different. with easier access to the natural resources, computer technology, and transportation, tyrants are but a step away, and there will always be those who want to listen and join.

Al,

Very well said. In my opinion the only way to keep generation after generation from falling under their spell is to go through the "45 Communist Goals for America" and immediately start trying to reverse them. That will take time, but if successful, we win for a very long time.

America won't be strong again until Conservatives take over. If that doesn't happen, the marxist and the moderates will have destroyes us.

I am with you, in Jesus name I pray, Amen

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.
