House Dems Sound The Alarm: "We Just Got Word The Koch Brothers" Are Going To Attack Obama!...
...well, they've preemptively personalized it (See Alinsky rule #13)...

#1  Uh huh... more ways to get money from the gullible I guess.

#2  Crap FOR Obama?
Seems right, we've gotten enough crap FROM Obama.

#3  Drew — we can’t lose these critical seats because we didn’t have the resources to fight back. Right now, we’re looking at a $450,456 hole in our Obamacare Rapid Response Fund.

Hey, no problem. Just use some of that $600,000,000. that was allocated for the Obamacare website work. We've got to empty that slush fund before someone discovers it.

#6  Their strategy is simple: deceive voters about Obamacare and drive down Democrats’ poll numbers.

Deceive voters about ObamaCare? All they have to do is tell the truth since the MSM is not. The Donk poll numbers are already heading south. I've noticed the Dems are careful not to talk about Soros' backing of Hildebeast for Prez at this time--the candidate who ignored the early warnings and did not take the 3:00 a.m. call about Benghazi when it occurred. As the a result, four good men were killed but then again "What difference does it make?"

#7  Just how many divisions do the Koch Brothers have?

#8  I hope someone like the Koch brothers go after certain Dems. I have a list, lets get started. By the time the elections come these guys need to be defeated.

#9  Just how many divisions do the Koch Brothers have?

Plenty of fellow libertarians.

But most are perpetually stoned.

#10  I am more creeped out by the day. The claims of sabotage sound so Soviet. I mean, how is it different from, "the boot factory heroically met its production quota of 5 million boots. But they are all left boots, because counterrevolutionary saboteurs made off with all the right boots." Nothing to do with unrealistic expectations and/or incompetence, no sir, not at all.

How will the country endure 3+ more years of this?

Sibelius's History of IT Failures
Obama administration Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius’ failure at designing websites to provide government services began during her term as governor of Kansas, long before the Obamacare website debacle, Kansas political insiders told The Daily Caller.

Sebelius oversaw numerous costly and disastrous government website projects during her six-year governorship (2003-2009), including a failed update of the Department of Labor’s program to provide unemployment pay and other services and similar updates pertaining to the Department of Administration and the state’s Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) services.

The Department of Labor’s overhaul of its computer programs was a notable boondoggle, according to 14-year former Kansas state senator and former state Labor Secretary Karin Brownlee.

“In the Kansas Senate, I chaired the Commerce committee. We had oversight over the Department of Labor. For years, we watched as the Department of Labor under Sebelius worked on that computer program. After seven years and $50 million, something should work,” Brownlee told TheDC.

“In Kansas if you have a 40 or 50 million dollar project, that’s a lot of money,” Brownlee said, noting that the Labor Department project was funded by federal money while other Sebelius website projects sucked up state taxpayer dollars. “They started and stopped that project with at least 3 different major contractors.”

When Brownlee was appointed to head the state’s Department of Labor under new Republican governor Sam Brownback in 2011, she was tasked with cleaning up Sebelius’ technical mess.

Money quote

“We pretty much expected HealthCare.gov to fail, because she has a pattern of failing on these big initiatives. We thought that was why she was not nominated originally,” Schwab said.

#1  Where did the $600,000,000. in SD development money REALLY go ?
Posted by: Besoeker || 10/25/2013 3:53 Comments || Top||

#2  A low information voter moment:

"I love Obama because now I can get health care even though I am unemployed."

"Why are you unemployed."

"I got laid off because my employer can't afford to pay for Obamacare."

#3  In other words - she was *perfect* for the job.

#4  Where did the $600,000,000. in SD development money REALLY go ?

That's what I wanna know. I suspect the whole thing bore a strong resemblance to the Solyndra episode. The money just kind of...disappeared. I'd also like to know how much those CGI executives contributed to Baraq Hussein's election campaign.

But $50 million for the Kansas Labor Department? C'mon. Give me that much money and I'm fairly certain that after seven years I could have had her web site working all by myself. Yes, it can be hard work and it requires some attention to detail. But it's really not that big of a deal. Hell, you put a couple of servers in my garage and I could run it from there. Dang, I should do some government contracting. All I gotta do is find the right politicians to bribe. and contribute to their election campaigns.

#5  This woman is an evil ideologue that shares "O's" vision of the U.S. being a third world country.

#11  If you think Barry is bad off-the-cuff, The Silver Mullet will readjust your meters. S'why they are delaying ALAP to get her coach time.

No, opposition to the nationalization of health care and/or its implementation should not be calling for resignation, they need her explaining how a robust abortion industry lowers rates - remember that one? -
