But, hey, this guy claims total success! Things are “working just fine” and such. Those pesky “glitches”? Not a problem. And he might have managed to magically escape the far higher premiums with which mere mortals are being hit.

    That girl that fainted was a plant I am sure. She looked perfectly fine with her sh#t eating grin and then suddenly just loses it? I noticed a little patch on the back of her arm as they dragged her away like a Nicoderm type patch. I think it was the “Faint, you’re in the Messiah’s presence PATCH”

    • brightfartbanned me

      It was the new mind control patch Homeland Security is trying out for us all.

      • drw

        I think they’ve dropped that in favor of the direct-implant device, they’re also currently beta-testing a beer activated nano-bot at colleges across the country.

        • brightfartbanned me

          But only at liberal arts schools. Bunch of losers anyway.

          • drw

            They know they have to do something, there have been sporadic indicators of independent thought at some of the larger universities and I think they’re worried that some are becoming resistant to the standard programming.

    • JoeMyGodNYC

      Eye roll. The patch was an insulin pump. She’s six months pregnant and was there on behalf of the National Diabetes Association.

      • tops116 ✓Quipper

        Or she was just so bored by Obama that she almost fell asleep. There’s a reason why Reid and Pelosi put Obama on mute during teleconferences, after all.

      • Scott

        Are you her spokesperson? You’re a fool if you don’t think that was staged!!

      • Tama

        If she was six months pregnant and diabetic, how stupid of them to force her to stand in the sun

        • JoeMyGodNYC


        • John Ansell

          And fly from San Diego. I’m sure Obama will offer her a free abortion for her “problem.”

          • OldGal46

            Erm…that would be ‘punishment’, John, ‘punished’ with a child, according to Barky!

    • Suzyqpie

      I agree. Just as she was ostensibly “fainting,” Pres 0bama mechanically turned around, what timing, to assist her. But why? It brought nothing to the already staged theatrics? Could the handlers and choreographers think this 45 sec distraction would shift the conversation from 0bamaCare debris field?

    • Zathras11 @B5

      I would hate to think that The Kenyan Messiah would stoop THAT low. She said that she is pregnant and has Type 1 diabetes, which “is a lifelong (chronic) disease in which there are high levels of sugar (glucose) in the blood”.

      • JoeMyGodNYC

        She told reporters that she was dehydrated because her disease + pregnancy makes her have to pee frequently and she didn’t have anything to drink beforehand just in case it overwhelmed her during the speech. That plan backfired, obviously.

        • Malcolm Reynolds

          Ohhhhh. But she decided to stand there anyway.
          Epitomizes the stupidity of libtards??

          • OldGal46

            Faint we much!

        • Jack Deth

          So, it could be said that the woman in question brought upon or engineered her own fainting spell?

    • conservativechick

      Oh, didn’t you see the funny video? So funny!

      • Scott

        That is AWESOME!! Love the play by play commentary on this video.

        It’s sad all the idiots that are coming to her defense and making LAME excuses for her.

      It happens that way, if you stand with your knees locked too long you will go down. I’ve seen it many time at military parades, which are very different from your civilian variety marching parade.

    • keyboard jockey

      Look at his twitter account. Looks like he started tweeting on the 13th ten days ago. He’s following a lefty radio personality out of NYC The David Pakman Show.

      Probably a plant.

    What are the odds? They say a stopped clock is right twice a day-any doubt that at some point, someone, somewhere would actually benefit from Obamacare? I mean, it had to happen sooner of later. At this rate, by Christmas there will be, gosh, DOZENS of people who will actually benefit from this. At that rate, by 2016 those coming out ahead with their exchange plan are bound to number in the low-or, dare I say it-even the HIGH hundreds! Now, take that! How’s that for success?

  • Zathras11 @B5

    Not a big pork guy but she is easily my favorite Ham.

  • MurphTacular

    Where’s the “$600 million” figure from? Not that it would make things much better, but I just heard on NPR this week, the number’s closer to $400 million. Granted, that’s still a ton of cash, but it’s also one-third less than the aforementioned figure.

    • Angie

      $684 million is the figure all the other media outlets — across the board — have cited for the last 3 weeks now.

      And lets not forget– in addition to the money spent on the website, we’ve spent tax dollars on all the advertisement done by the WH to get people to enroll/make sure they knew about the October 1 opening date. Taking that into account we’ve spent MORE than ONE BILLION TAX DOLLARS on an epic fail. So even if National Progressive Radio wasn’t lying (they are) to try to make the money spent on the website “less bad” there is a lot more money that’s been wasted on this.

      (Oh, originally, Obama/HHS’s budget for the website was $92 million — so even $400 million is 4x more than they promised us taxpayers to spend).

      • MurphTacular

        From the Wall Street Journal, Oct. 16, 2013:

        The health-insurance exchange—which, let’s remember, is merely a website meant to connect citizens to insurance companies, something quite a bit less complex than Apple’s groundbreaking miniature computer—so far has cost at least $360 million, and possibly as much as $600 million.

        Sounds like NPR’s not completely off-base with the $400 million figure. What’s also lost in all this that the feds were surprised at the number of states who didn’t opt in. That left them with a much bigger system to create than they originally anticipated.

        • Angie

          Did you read the part about the ads to get the people enrolled needed before the end of the year taking the figure for the entire “roll out” over $1 billion or are you just choosing to ignore that?
          Do you know what “at least” and “as much” means? That means NPR is full of chit — yet somehow you equate that to mean ‘not far off” when, in fact, it proves NPR is purposefully shading things to benefit Obama (as I stated).

          Finally — while you think you are making some kind of acceptable excuse for the Feds — that more states “opted out” then they anticipated (and your standards, being obviously so low, that lame excuses are fine by you) it in fact only proves (1) that you don’t understand what the creation of this system entailed so you really should just STFU about it and (2) you don’t understand that it is STILL TAX DOLLARS WASTED ON AN EPIC FAIL. (Which is the main point here).

          • MurphTacular

            Well, if you expect the national exchange will have to service say, 20 states, but the number ends up being 35, you can term that a ‘lame excuse’ if you must, but it sounds like a legitimate complicating factor to me. And you act as if it’s going to take another “$640 million” to fix it … How do we know that?

    • TocksNedlog

      Yes, it IS comforting to know that only 400 million of our tax dollars were spent on something that doesn’t work.

      • MurphTacular

        No one’s arguing that the $400 million figure makes anything OK. I’m just trying to determine a correct dollar amount to use going forward …

    • Kenneth Hutchings

      Remember, this is the Obama administration we are talking about. Initial figures, whether about the job rate or economic growth, are almost always revised downward with the passage of time. In this particular instance, however, the figure will be revised upward.

    • rickg62

      NPR, really? They broadcast from the White House living quarters on our dime. How much is going to cost to fix this disaster? tech analysts are saying most of the code may have to be rewritten it’s so bad.

      • MurphTacular

        Just because you don’t like NPR doesn’t mean they’re not legitimate. And I’m as curious as the next person as to what the mistakes will cost to correct. Canada’s CGI apparently has lots of explaining to do …

        • rickg62

          But, I suppose, administration is completely off the hook. They’re the ones that hired this company that was fired in Canada for failure. Who in the administration is or was connected to CGI since this was a no bid contract.

          • MurphTacular

            No, obviously. CGI, and the White House that brought them in made a mistake. Where are you reading/hearing that they were awarded this job as the result of a ‘no-bid’ contract?

          • rickg62

            Try the news. HHS and the WH bear the blame. CGI was fired by one of the Canadian provinces for screwing up a healthcare site. They also were hired by Canada to build a firearms database and screwed that up. CGI used what they had which was outdated technology and code. Why would this administration hire somebody with that track record when we have better IT companies here?

    “We hate Obamacare so much, we are going to complain the website to the thing we hate doesn’t work.” – Twitchy.

    • Acethepug

      So, no denial of the facts presented, that Obamacare is thus far an unmitigated disaster? You’ve just posted to whine?

      Good to know. Maybe someday, when you are a big boy (or girl), you will have something relevant to add to the discussion.

      • WhoDat

        The website used to sign up for insurance is messed up, for now.

        It will get fixed and that’s what worries the GOP. That people will like it like they like Social Security and Medicare.

        • Bathing Suit Area

          Yep, those programs were going to crush us all under the evil boot heel of socialism… right up until they were implemented and popular. Now no republican dares campaign on ending them.

          • Thomas, Snarkmaster General

            George W. Bush tried, and you Leftists screamed bloody murder.

        • Thomas, Snarkmaster General

          That’s what you guys were saying BEFORE the ObamaDERP website didn’t work. You’re counting on people to have a higher attention span, and you’ll be wrong.

    • Erik Bartlam

      Sometimes you do alright expressing contrary opinions around here…this was not one of those times.

    • Thomas, Snarkmaster General

      It’s not complaining. It’s MOCKING. There’s a difference.

    • Scott

      What part of INCOMPETENCE do you have a hard time UNDERSTANDING?? You are as dumb as the idiots you are defending!!

      They used 10 year software, VIOLATED COPY RIGHTED CODE and the entire thing will have to be REWORKED.

      SPIN all you want fool, you are only making yourself look as PATHETIC as the fools associated with OSCAMACARE!!!

  • Scotty G.

    “found a better rate, with better coverage”… What does that even mean? Compared to what? If you already have insurance, you are not on the healthcare website looking for an insurance policy, and if you don’t have insurance, then your rates and coverage are better than what you never bought in the first place? Sure you did.

  • jetch

    I hightly doubt that guy found a better rate with better coverage, unless he’s ignoring the deductible and copay!

    • pinkelephant22

      If he’s being truthful, he probably doesn’t even know the definitions of “deductible” and “copay”.

  • Ronald Green

    I might have believed his lie except that he took it too far. “Found a better rate with better coverage.” Just too rah rah to be true.

  • Thomas, Snarkmaster General

    Hey, Jesse? The guys who claimed to have discovered cold fusion called. They said to stop digging.
