Called to testify before Congress, the contractors behind the “excruciatingly embarrassing” HealthCare.gov site had a perfect opportunity to blame GOP sabotage for the disastrous rollout. They didn’t, almost certainly because there was no GOP sabotage to blame. That didn’t stop “truthers” from accusing the nefarious Koch brothers of hiring hackers to take down the site.

Even the mayor of Elizabeth, N.J., (before deleting his tweet) wondered if the Republicans were “robot calling” the site to jam up the lines.

Verdict: Massive Obumble. (Great word, by the way.)

    Wagering Peter doesn’t have Obamacare and never will.

    • pinupartist

      He’s like Pauline Kael–“I don’t know what people are complaining about–I don’t know anyone who’s losing their insurance”

    • operanerd1986

      He’s 73 now, so if nothing else he qualifies for Medicare and won’t have to pay the astronomical premiums.

        And he probably still has no idea that Medicare funds were shifted to get more people on Medicaid. The elderly vote will count much less for Democrats once they get the 15 million illegals voting.

          Too true, alas.

      • Jill

        For what it is worth, my mother’s medicare supplement just rose dramatically. My mother in law, also eligible for Medicare, will be paying a ‘cadillac tax’ on her rather generous retirement healthcare benefits next year.

        • operanerd1986

          I’m sorry to hear that. It sounds like Obamacare is turning everything to horse droppings.

          • Jill

            For what it is worth, they’ll both have ‘free’ birth controlling….kidding. It does suck and there really is nothing we can do. Elections, sadly, have consequences.

      agreed.There is no chance in hell.

    I think Wednesday’s meeting in front of congress hhs sec sebliar will be more watched than the world series. I can’t wait to see how she tries to wiggle out

    • forgetyoutooo

      Going to predict Sebelius has had the flu since yesterday, has fallen and bumped her head this afternoon and is on the phone with Hillary’s doctor confirming that she will be hospitalized tonight. The Congressional over site committee will just have to wait for her to testiLie.

  • Juan Pablo

    RACIST!
    It’s Bush’s fault

  • pinupartist

    I sincerely wish the GOP was clever enough to hack this website, but the GOP is barely clever enough to run a 3-car funeral.

    All these leftists who light candles in front of dear leader’s photo every night are in massive denial about his immeasurable incompetence. This huge failure may smarten a few of them up, if not Hanoi Jane’s brother.

  • Michelle ✓classified

    Wow, totally forgot he exists. Way to come out of the left field of irrelevance, Peter.

    • CatHerder ✓fire! ✓fire!

      Honestly, I thought he croaked long ago. Has he done anything since Race with the Devil? You know, the movie where they identified Satanists as witches?

      • cajun_2

        “Race with the Devil part Deux….In this movie, the entire cast all from Hollyweird, the home of well dressed elite zombies, show an action filled effort to elect THE DEVIL to the White House to introduce the start of the Apocalypse….

  • http://twitter.com/thetugboatphil TugboatPhil ✓Mate

    HELLO? The GOP having “hackers” capable of doing harm to a program? Anyone remember their ORCA debacle?

    • CatHerder ✓fire! ✓fire!

      Once you drink of Lethe, all things are possible. And new.

  • therealguyfaux ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    Just the fact that he phrases it as he does- “Obumble” (without the scare quotes)– should be a clue, folks. He’s pretty much an equal opportunity irreverence machine.

    He’s hard into environ-“Mental” causes; he’s really had it in for Obama since the Big BP Oil Spill– he thinks Obama is either corrupt or unbelievably stupid (not necessarily mutually exclusive, Pete old man).

    So he possibly (give him the benefit of the doubt) satirically posits something incredible like GOP hacking (to throw people off the trail), and slips his main point in, as a sort of “afterthought.”

    Probably not the next James Woods, but he’s hardly an Obambi-Zombie.

    • nc ✓s & balances

      Eh, pretty thin gruel.

      • therealguyfaux ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

        My point was that he’s asking you what’s more likely the case, in such a way that he placates all the hard-Lefties who are too stupid to realize he’s taking the piss outta them as well as out of Obama. He has got a track record of harshly criticizing Obama on the Spill and how it was handled.

        • nc ✓s & balances

          I’m no Peter Fonda expert, but it sounds like the only reason he’s critical of BHO is that he’s not lefty enough. Is that what you mean?

          • therealguyfaux ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

            On this particular issue, for damned sure.
            He’s got a streak of anti-corporatism that’s probably more Left than it is Right, but if you had an ultra-liberal father and a champagne-socialist sister, that would be your frame of reference.

          • nc ✓s & balances

            You can’t even take an Obama critic at face value these days!

  • cajun_2

    “GOP hackers” of ObamaCare are the same as WTC Truthers….Lib nuts.

    • Mr_Wrestling_XIII

      Well, a lot of 9/11 Truthers are also on the right, too. The loony left and the loony right end up agreeing with a lot of things. lol

      • cajun_2

        Agree with you on that one. I have met both kinds. The only thing they have in common is the same disorder….stupid.

    He was always as crazy as his Anti-American sister, just quieter about it.. Henry must be weeping in Heaven that his kids are such lightening rods for the left’s “hate your neighbor if he disagrees” faction..

    Henry respected and was a life long friend to Jimmy Stewart, a staunch republican,..

    But that was before the far far left nutjobs hijacked the democrat party and with media complicity dragged in beyond merely left wing. Once they nominated McGovern, they slid downhill fast.

  • HanaFiveO

    No hacking required Peter, it was a Jedi mind trick. Be afraid, be very afraid.

  • Gordon

    He did say “Obumble”. Here’s to hoping that he’s being humorous and not batsh*t like his sis.

    • Lolaga

      That’s the way I read it, too. He’s taking a semi-conspicuous swipe at the Boy King.

  • neoface

    Does this family need more nuts???

    • Mr_Wrestling_XIII

      Henry is spinning in his grave…

  • SideTraKd

    So strong is their faith in Big Government, that they would sooner believe Obama’s awesome website was hacked, rather than have to admit that maybe government doesn’t run things very efficiently.

  • Arkuy The Great

    Looks to me that Peter holds Obama in about as much contempt as the GOP. Much like not a few Twitchy fans. I’m okay with that.

  • dontcare4uatall

    Oh, Peter You were SO CLOSE:

    And I thought his sister was the vapid one….

  • Jill

    Thereby proving that Fonda has, indeed, ‘Bogartted that joint’ and refuses to pass.

    Peter Fonda should stick to making movies for stoners.
