Obama’s leadership exposed as not trustworthy

By From page A8 | December 07, 2013

Today we are finding out that you cannot keep your health plan, doctor and even your local hospital after being told you could, period. If this was a movie, we would walk out because we would not believe the plot. Have President Obama and his pals told us the truth on any important issue?

Beginning in 2010, people on the right tried to expose the truth on just how bad the Affordable Care Act was. Despite all the claims by the left that the right was attempting to kill the bill, it now turns out that the right was right. Obamacare is a continuing train wreck. I wonder if the liberal media had been around when Paul Revere made his historic ride, would the media have treated him like it has treated Sen. Ted Cruz? Both were trying to warn of attacks on our freedoms.

I saw in my local newspaper that Rep. John Garamendi was lauded as he “stands tall” in support of the Affordable Care Act. “He is committed to doing what it takes to make sure the law works.” Also, Sen. Harry Reid found the longstanding rules did not meet his needs, so the Democrats voted to change the rules that have stood for more than 200 years. Is there anything the left will not do to achieve its goals? We do know that they will lie about anything.

Again, I ask that you remember all that has and is happening to our freedoms under the Obama rule. Remember all the scandals that we are still not fully informed on. Remember how the administration has used every move to keep the truth from we the people.

If during the next election you do not like your representatives, you do not have to keep them, period.

    Keck's rants are ramping up. Perhaps a plea for help?

    "Obama rule?" More hyperbole. Is Rod "Daniel?"

    They are al the same "person." The right-wing media has transformed the mass of America into identical anti-intellectual Zombies who roam the land in search of brains and when they find them, they try to eat them. I think that could be a successful movie. A tragi-comedy.

    Agreed, but the liberal media and Democrats will never tell the truth. YOU have to go on Fox to hear the truth. This was all a well planned plan to push this true knowing full well that is would be a train wreck then he would impose a single payer system. This was the plan all along. The constitution doesn't matter any more. The KING has speaketh!

    The alleged Progressives are paying the price the same as the rest us for having such a decietful president. The only difference is that we acknowledge facts such as when Bush Sr. lied about reading his lips and no new taxes, and subsequently we didn't vote for him for that single lie. The so-called Progressives are too delusional to be able to absorb what's happening right in front of them and what it's costing them, they'd rather obsess over the small tea party, the out-of-office housewife, Palin, Cruz or blame-Bush rantings rather than deal with realty. Let's pray for the sake of the nation that the mental illness, which they ironically label as "intelligence", of being a "Progressive" doesn't spread, otherwise our demise pace will quicken even more rapidly.

    Dan, other than George Washington, can you name any politician who would be vote-worthy and pass your muster?

    I'm no fan of President Obama. He is the perfect example of the "Peter Principle". However, I'm certain that he is not the first President to mislead or lie (after all they have all been politicians). The 24 hour news cycle had brougt to light what was once done in darkness.

    Sorry about the two mistakes in my comments. "Had" should have been "has" and "brought" is not spelled "brough". I've got to stop keyboarding with my laptop on my lap!

    We need Jeb Bush. He'd have us take care of Iran with a nuke, or something.

    I was talking to a friend of mine that needs both hips replaced. Since he had at one time (due to a loss of a job) a break in medical coverage his present medical denied coverage due to pre-existing conditions. He checked into the cost & it was going to be over $78k each to have them done. I told him a friend had a hip joint replaced on a dog of his & it only cost $4K at the vet. He thought wow, I wonder if I could go to a vet to have mine replaced. I said, you could but there is one major side-effect. Every time you take a leak you automatically lift one of your legs. He’s hoping that with the ACA he will be able to get them done at a proper hospital so he can avoid those awkward moments if he were to walk past a Fire Hydrant.
