Seriously. Did President Obama forget to watch that television thingie or read some newspapers in order to get up to snuff on the news?

So, this happened.

Glitches, shmitches! President Obama addressed (allegedly) the issues with the Obamacare launch and the disastrous website from the Rose Garden Monday morning. Even Ezra Klein had to note a little something:

Yep.

NRO’s Charles W. Cooke was flabbergasted.

Yep.

But, hey, it’s all good. The “product” is awesome and stuff! And everything is working just fine, whiners.

He’s selling something. And America isn’t buying it.

    Perhaps he thinks the 404Care web site is just like Totus. It comes on with all these soothing words…why would his web site be any different?

      Anybody, and I mean anybody at all if they were to be surrounded with people constantly fawning over them, pandering and coddling, anybody would act like this. As they said in the tweets up there, he never has a reality check. He’s been in the same echo chamber for years and even before the presidency.

      • QueenB ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

        Even with millions fawning over me, I would know the website doesn’t work and the errors people getting have nothing to do with too much server activity. Of course, I didn’t go to Harvard, so what do I know?

  • HARP2

    Notice not once did he call it obamacare.

    What a pathetic little man.

    • Republicanvet

      Well, since it has been such a disaster…

      How soon before it becomes RepubliCare?

      • ObamaFail

        Once the libs see how much their “free” healthcare is going to cost them and start raising a stink, they’ll start calling it CruzCare, BushCare, or RepublicanCare, and the sheep will have to be reminded that no Republican voted for this crap.

      • QueenB ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

        It’s already started. “It’s just Romneycare”. “This was the Heritage Foundation’s plan”. Already been hearing it. Within a few years, Obamacare would have been passed on a partisan basis with only republicans voting for it.

        • jackay

          I was going to say the same thing. The term “Romneycare” worked out for them during the campaign so why stop using it now.

          • ObamaFail

            Because I think even the MSM isn’t going to deny that this was all the Democrat’s baby. They pushed it, they passed it, and they own it.

        • ObamaFail

          The question that could be brought up about is, “If Romneycare was so bad, why did they take elements from that and add their own and make it a national thing?”

    • Matt

      Well, technically it isn’t “Obamacare.” It’s The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.

      Though, it seems to be doing neither.

      • Ronald

        Exactly. The name is ACA. Not Obamacare.

        • Michelle ✓classified

          Are you aware that the official Twitter account for the White House uses the hashtag #Obamacare each time they tweet about it? The verified account of Barack Obama also refers to it as Obamacare. I believe Harp’s point was Barry himself will not call it Obamacare because once America truly understands what a horrific law it is, Barry doesn’t want his name associated with it.

    • nc ✓s & balances

      I called this days ago. The lapdogs are following suit.

    • Ronald

      Why would he call it Obamacare?

      • Corey Dennison

        Because he pushed it on us and according to the media and his supporters, it’s his ‘signature accomplishment.’

      • chicagorefugee

        Dunno. Why don’t you go to his official Obamacare Face Book page and ask?

    He has to say that so that people the stupids who voted for him will sign up. If he tells them its a disaster, they wont even bother. Lying/manipulating are his areas of expertise

  • ObamaFail

    It’s amazing the way this guy can just walk out on live tv and lie without batting an eye. I’ve seen some liars in politics before, but no one has done it as easily as Obama.

    • Republicanvet

      That’s because no previous politician has known so definitively that they can get away with such blatant lies.

They tell you that “eventually, the product will work just fine.” Do you accept this?

    If the GOP knew that Obama was giving a presser on Obamacare today, why did they not have a presser set up to follow his, where there could’ve been people up on the stage who have lost their insurance, lost their doctor, etc.. all of the things that Obama promised would not happen.

  • Sakemoto

    Obama: The essence of the law is working just fine. He is absolutely correct, since the essence of the law is to screw the American people.

      Yeah, because everyone getting cancellation notices or getting the letters of how much their premiums going up are feeling pretty screwed. As are the people cut down to part-time or laid off because of it.

  • HARP2

    I must have missed it.

    Did he mention deductibles and co-pays ?

    • nc ✓s & balances

      I listened to every single word on the radio, and, unless he was holding up flashcards, the answer is NO. In fact, he kept up that ridiculous lie about it costing less than $100/ month, like your cell phone or cable bill. Arrrgh!!!!

  • Paladin

    He probably had this speech prepared sometime last year. His speechwriters likely decided to run with it instead of producing a different one that wouldn’t have acknowledged what a pack of incompetent boobs this group really is.

      He unbelievably insisted that “85%” of Americans have insurance that is unchanged. Yes he did! And the other 15% will be able to get their policies for less than $100 or the cost of your cell phone or cable bill. I heard it myself. No mention of deductibles.

      The good news is he won’t be able to deny it later.

      • DWAAP

        Some how, they will spin it, some how, idiots believe everything the man says and the lib media, some how, we will survive this and fire our beloved politicians that refuse to work for the people. Some how, God will prevail through all of this!

    The problem is that the Obama presidency has been one success story after another. There have been no terrorist attacks on US soil or military bases during his tenure. The economy has been going gangbusters. The border is so secure that we can hand out guns to banditos without backlash. Our embassies are safe havens where little security is needed. Everything has been going so well that this little technical error is pounced on by Republicans and exploited to make Obama look bad.
