Random Observations-On Government Shutdown and Obamacare Rollout

  • How much smarter Republicans in Congress would have been to just let the Obamacare fiasco play out without all the drama of the government shutdown?   All the government shutdown did was mask the coverage of the horrible rollout of the Obamacare website.  The Cruz strategy never made any sense to me at all.
  • Why should Republicans be the ones to push for delay of the individual mandate?  The Dems own Obamacare lock, stock, and barrel.  What some of the Tea Party type of Republicans have been pushing for is to push back the mandate past the 2014 elections, so that people don't see the full results of this administrations foolish policies until after the elections.  I don't get this either!
  • I have a lot of sympathy for the goals of the Tea Party.  However, the "take no prisoners" tactics that they have used turns a lot of people off and really poisons the water for all conservatives.  (See Mike Huckabee's opening monologue from October 20th here-I couldn't agree more!)
  • I have seen this president squirm out from under so many things that would have destroyed almost any other president.  Benghazi, Fast and Furious, IRS, etc.  This is because the press has given him a pass on almost all of it.  It's not working now.  NBC, ABC, CNN, CBS are being just as hard on him about Obamacare as Fox and talk radio.  It seems the honeymoon is finally over!
  • Watch this big Obamacare supporter describe her dismay at seeing her premiums skyrocket.  Buyer remorse?
