Many Still Locked Out
That's proof Obamacare is no good?


Major insurers, state health-care officials and Democratic allies repeatedly warned Obama that
the new health-insurance exchange had significant problems, according to unnamed people.
Despite those warnings and intense criticism from Republicans, they proceeded with an Oct. 1 launch.

A week after the federal Web site opened, technical problems continued to plague the system,
and on Tuesday people were locked out until 10 a.m., although some applicants were able to sign up
as the day went on. Officials said they were working 24 hours a day to improve the system and that
they were confident it would soon be able to meet the demand. They added that there was ample time
to correct the site to allow consumers to get insured by Jan. 1.

In 2007, Led Zeppelin got together for one last concert at London's 02 Arena, which holds 20,000.
They knew they would have more than 20,000 requests for tickets, so they set up a web site lottery.

When the site went live, 20 million people tried to buy tickets and the system crashed.
The Washington Whore Post would say that's PROOF that nobody wanted to see the band.
Everyone knows it's GREAT news when your web site crashes due to too many hits, but the
whores at the WaHoPo are so against the poor getting health care, they slam the Obamacare
site as proof the Democrats don't know what they're doing.

People know the truth and the Democrats are going to win BIG in 2014 and 2016.

  Subject: It's all in the wording

Maybe Congress should change the wording of the budget bill.

Instead of passing a continuing resolution to fund the government
they should vote "Do you want to keep the government shut down?"

That way Republicans can vote NO and do the right thing.
All we have to do is word every bill so that Republicans vote NO to do what's right.

Moderates Must Leave the GOP
It's the only way to salvage something


Over the next couple of weeks, the fate of the GOP rests with about 20 people:
Republican members of the House who have said they favor a straight-up CR that funds the government.
No re-litigating Obamacare, no scaling back Social Security — just a “clean” resolution that would leave
those other conservative causes to be fought about on their merits some other day.

When those votes are added to those of the 200 sane House Democrats, you get a narrow majority for
ending the shutdown.  But that’s a big “if.” While The Whore Post counts 21 GOP House members who
might defect, most of them have done nothing to compel the Crazies to allow such a vote.

They could declare their intention to join House Democrats and force such a vote. They could privately
declare that intent to Boner, leaving him either to accede to such a vote or have it forced upon him.
These center-right Republicans, however, have not indicated that they are willing to cross that Rubicon.

The Republicans know their shutdown strategery is a loser.
Funny, they knew that before they started, but they did it anyway.
Why can't they see that the first Republican to stand up and say, "This is bullshit - we must stop"
is going to be the new leader of the GOP and the miles-ahead front-runner for 2016?

Doesn't any Republican want to be president?

Hightower: Laugh Until it Hurts
Teabaggers are intent on killing themselves - OK
Whacking yourself on the head with a ball-peen hammer would be stupid.
But doing it again and again — that’s insane.

Welcome to your U.S. House, presently led by a pack of Tea Party Republicans.
They are so crazed by Obamacare that they repeatedly hammer themselves over the head with it,
having voted 46 times (so far) to dismantle, defund, delay, deny, and otherwise destroy this
landmark health care bill — all to no avail. They would be hilarious, were they not so pathetic.

But now, their anti-government, anti-Obama obsession has turned into insanity.
The craziest part of their stunt is the duplicitous claim that health care will have “horrific effects.”

Meanwhile, the GOP hierarchy is quietly warning its members that defeating Obamacare now is
essential to their own health. Why? Because they know the program will work and at a cheaper price.
It will become widely popular, and any politico who tries to kill it later will become wildly unpopular.
Even the senator from Oz, Ted Cruz, conceded that the public will be “hooked” on it for the long haul.

 Subject: You think saying one liners, is enough to solve problems?

Bart, you wrote:

> The Republicans want me to be the first American president
>  to give in to blackmail and I refuse to allow that to happen.
     -- What I'd like to hear Obama say

Once he says that, what can they counter with?

Do you really think that if the President can deliver a good one liner that it will
shut the republicans up and we cause them to suddenly see the error of their ways? 
Because you say things like the above quite often. 

It astounds me that you would imply that if the President or the Democrats
just say these one liners that you think they should say,  the republicans will
just give up and give in or that the public will support democrats more.  
If only they just say these lines then all will be good.   It makes no sense.
 Corey from Ontario, Canada

Sure it does.
Politics is about making the other guy look worse than you.
If Obama were to say that sentence, a reporter MIGHT ask Boenher,
"So how much longer will you be trying to blackmail the president?"

Remember, Carter won because Ford said "the Soviets don't dominate Poland."
Reagan won because he said, "When I'm president, we won't have hostages,"
  implying that' he'd go "John Wayne" on Iran and solve all our problems.
Reagan won again when he said, "We shouldn't hold Mondale's inexperience against him,"
  thereby defusing the notion that he was too old and sleepy to be president.
Bush won because Dukakis said he'd "be a good liberal" to his wife's rapist/murderer.
Clinton won because he said he'd "focus on the economy like a laser beam."
Gore lost because he couldn't shake the lie that he was so delusional that he actually
  though that he, personally, invented and created the internet with his own two hands.
lost because he couldn't shake the lie that he was a cowardly draft-dodger (and gay marriage)
Obama won because America was dying and his slogan was "Time for a change."

My point?

In any debate or battle, there's that one word or sentence that everyone remembers.
If Obama would hang the "blackmailer" sign around dumbass Boner's neck,
he'd be polictially dead for the rest of his career - but ...that wouldn't be nice.

Curt Shilling sells his furniture on the streets


With his financial life in disrepair, Curt Schilling is holding an estate sales this Saturday in Medfield, Mass.

The former Boston Red Sox pitcher is currently being sued by Rhode Island's economic development agency
after 38 Studios, his startup video game company, collapsed into bankruptcy in 2011. The state had approved
a $75 million loan in 2010 to get Schilling's company to move to Rhode Island.

Schilling, who now works for ESPN as an analyst, said he personally lost $50 million of his own career earnings
on the failed venture. He made $114 million in salary over the course of his 19-year career, which ended with
the Red Sox in 2008, but has said his family is preparing for a "very different life" after 38 Studios went under.

Maybe it's karma?

Worst Negotiators in History
Is it Obama or AG Eric Holder?

I saw the Ben Affleck movie Runner, Runner recently.
It's about the great poker swindle that made Obama shut down every online poker site in America.

Apparently in 2008, the four owners of Fult-Tilt Poker stole $443M from poker players around the world.
One of those crooks is Howard Lederer, a former poker great who's now much-hated by everyone.
(People tend to hate you when you steal millions of dollars from them.)

The snippet from Wikipedia below says Lederer was given $42 million in stolen money.
When he got caught, he admitted no wrongdoing and gave back $2.5 million.

That's how the worst negotiators in history handle mega-crimes in America.

If you get caught stealing $42M, you agree to give back $2.5M and you pinky-swear never to do it again.

But if they catch you growing pot, you could do ten years hard time - or more., because "pot is dangerous."

How is it possible that the Obama Justice Department can be that screwed up?

"Eric, Bart's right!  What's wrong with us?"

They Could Lose the House
They know that, but they keep doing it, anyway

ORepublicans could be at risk of losing the House in 2014, according to a new poll.
In 17 districts, generic Democrats are leading a GOP incumbent among registered voters.

“Democrats must pick up 17 seats to win control of the House. These poll results make clear
that if the election were held today, such a pickup would be well within reach,” PPP said.
“The surveys challenge the meme that gerrymandering put the House out of reach for Democrats.”

PPP was one of the most accurate pollsters in 2012.

And think of how much more damage the GOP's brand will suffer
between today and Election Day 2014, which is 13 months away.

 Subject: Will Obama cave?

Dear Bart: I had the craziest dream last night:  A clique of congressmen and their president
got together and created a crisis.  Then they pretended they were on different sides.

On one side were a bunch of lunatics who kowtowed to the wealthy, on the other the principled,
sincere president who cared deeply about his country's welfare.  The drama increased day by day,
 neither side giving in, until one day the president, overcome by sorrow for the suffering of his fellow
Americans, caved in and acceded to the demands of the lunatics. 

"I did it for you," the president declared, "you've suffered enough."
Whew!  Thank god it was only a dream! 
 Steve in Paranoia, Arizona.
Let's hope it was just a dream.

I wish he'd use that line, "America won't be blackmailed - we will NOT give in!"

Bart: The new Pope has made an impression on me, a non-believing NC liberal.
If he can bring the flock to follow the teachings of their chosen Mesiah then I wish him well.
The world will be a better place.

I agree.
It's nice to look at The Pope and not think, "That evil man failed to investigate
n his weirdo friends were raping thousands of little boys on his watch for decades."

Bart, that's the future Senator Ted Cruz, while in college, explaining his vision for America.
  Steven B

That’s Francis Ford Coppola; it is from his period of making Apocalypse Now back 78 or 79
on scene where it was filmed - mostly in the Philippines; as to why he allowed a photo of himself
to be taken and published is probably from difficulties working with Marlon Brando.
Regards from Vienna, Austria.

Not only did he have to put up with Brando, but Martin Sheen had a heart attack while filming
and a typhoon wiped out their entire movie set and it had to be rebuilt.
