Notice how, to maintain the bash- #ACA agenda, #MSM has stopped asking whether ppl approve of it & are only asking abt the rollout?— Dudette (@Dudette9t9) November 19, 2013

No huge drop in Obamacare support despite rocky website rollout: Reuters/Ipsos poll mobile.reuters.com/article/idUSBR… #ACA #GoodbyeGOP— Firestarter in Chief (@docrocktex26) November 19, 2013
Yes. I saw that article too. The obstructionists are not getting the desired results. That’s why attempts to discredit this law and this President have become so frantic.
Bringing this over from the bottom of the last post…
“J.P. Morgan, U.S. Reach Historic Settlement”
J.P. Morgan Chase & Co. and the Justice Department Monday agreed to a landmark $13 billion settlement that resolves a number of legal headaches for the largest U.S. bank, clearing the way for a public announcement as soon as Tuesday, according to people familiar with the talks.
The historic settlement ends several investigations and lawsuits targeting soured mortgage bonds issued before the financial crisis and amounts to the biggest combination of fines and damages extracted by the U.S. government in a civil settlement with any single company.
J.P. Morgan agreed to pay at least $1.5 billion, and as much as $1.7 billion, to write down the principal amounts of J.P. Morgan-held loans in which the borrower owes more than the property is worth.
In addition, at least $300 million and as much as $500 million would go toward what the mortgage industry calls forbearance—restructuring some mortgages to reduce the monthly payments, the people said.
The other $2 billion in consumer relief will be directed toward a number of different measures, including new mortgage originations for low- and moderate-income borrowers, or absorbing the remaining principal owed on properties that have been vacated but not yet foreclosed upon, the people said.
Thanks so much for bringing this over, swbluega. Info that I can use…
YW Desertflower. Hopefully, many will see the benefits from this settlement.
Chipsticks, I was one of those people who could not get a connection to the OFA Call on last evening. THANK YOU Soooooooo Much for recording it and posting it at the TOD site.
An absolute pleasure swbluega! It was funny, my connection was terrible before PBO began speaking, but luckily it kept going once he came on – phew! Thanks again!
I didn’t get to the call on time either, Chips, so thanks. Did anyone else hear the strange thumping throughout the president’s remarks? It sounded like a slow drumbeat or someone keeping time with a knock on a desk. It could be my lousy sound system if no one else heard it or maybe I’m hearing things. Hmmm.
It was a really bad line Jackie, it was like a clicking sound the whole way through – NSA!
There you go. I’m sure the NSA enjoyed all our oohs, aahs, and rapid breathing.
Maybe the President was not at the Resolute Desk in the oval with his feet up, like I imagined, but being driven around in The Beast on the way to a meeting. He’s usually punctual, and it took a while to get him on the line. Many people got dropped off and had trouble getting back on, even in OFA which tried a new system. Back to the drawing board. Thanks, Chips, for re-posting and to all who were coordinated enough to live-tweet it.
A pleasure Judith, thank you!
Look at Caroline in Japan?
This is cool!
Ah, that’s great Jovie, LOVE the horse drawn carriage!!
Ooh, what a glorious way to arrive. I’m so glad she’s having this experience. She’ll do a great job and make us all proud.
The Japanese are big on ceremony & presentation. I love it!
You’re right, Caroline will be wonderful at that job and make us all proud. I hope she’s able to enjoy herself too! :-)
The RWers will have a fit looking at this picture. They went ballistic when she was first appointed ambassador.
Let ‘em! She’s got the job. We revel in it and then we carry on! #FORWARD :-D
Donnie Douche said that a broken website will be responsible for setting progressive policies back a generation.
I don’t get the panic from these idiots?
Really? A generation???
Jovie, you really should ignore these idiots, they are sick!
I know but remember these guys are being monitored bc if former bush officials on everyday at wee hours of morning.
This is where the days talking points come from, every channel every segment.
I know Jovie, but we all know the talking points already…they just repeat the same stuff over and over…not worth listening to. We all have to keep our spirits up.
Well, Jovie, if a ‘generation’ is less than three months, he’s got a point. By early next year, the whole website issue will be forgotten and millions will be signed up for health insurance for the first time in their lives. Americans have a very short memory and they will move on to the next crisis du jour. These guys project their fantasies on the world and hope you’ll fall for them, panic and give up. It’s actually getting laughable at this point.
“It’s actually getting laughable at this point”…yeah, it really is!
The lower the computer literacy (for want of a better phrase), the higher the expectations seem to be. For most people in THIS generation, computers have almost become a necessity and “glitches”, especially during roll-outs and after upgrades, are a norm. While it is a frustration, I don’t believe people are making as big of a deal about the healthcare.gov roll-out as those who barely know where the on/off button is and think hitting the “enter” key is supposed to automatically solve the world’s problems.
Good point, SW. I think computer literacy is more a function of education and training, rather than generation. Many people are still frightened by computers and rarely go on line. So, as you say, unless someone sits with them and walks them through, they’re utterly flummoxed. Those are the people who should call and talk to someone, or, find a navigator.
…and those are the people the media looks to when they highlight the problems with the web-site. I wonder how much of the problems are possibly due to “user error”.
KOCH BROTHERS SABOTAGING OBAMACARE (Required Viewing – Watch and Share)
New anti-Obamacare ads are Classic Koch
Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse talks with Rachel Maddow about the state level campaign by the billionaire Koch brothers to discourage sign-ups for health insurance.
Mr. President, I am forever grateful for your patience, tolerance, intelligence, kindness, thoughtfulness and service to our Nation at a time in history when we so desperately needed your distinct leadership. How you have been able to do this in the face of constant hate from the right, non-stop negative focus by our media and at times what appears to be people in your own party who let the media and the right cause them to lose their spine is beyond my comprehension.
The enemy hates you but you continue to fight for them even while they don’t deserve your hard work and effort. I will ALWAYS have your back. ObamaCare is your signature legislation and you will go down in history as one of the greatest Presidents of all time because of it. Your adversaries know this and it drives them crazy. You make all those in the media and on the Right appear so small minded. They focus on petty, negative things that in the big picture mean absolutely nothing to the average person seeking affordable health care. All the noise surrounding the launch of ACA will be forgotten because we your supporters will work our hearts out to make sure that everyone who needs insurance signs up (by whatever means necessary) to get insurance. We will promote ACA until we are blue in the face, if that is what it takes to make ObamaCare a complete success.
I’ve watched over these past six years as the media, the right and some on the left question time and again as to who you are. I’ll end this by sharing with the rest of the public what those of us who have been paying attention already know.
You are a man of strong character. You have the biggest heart of any politician I have ever seen. You are a family man. Family means everything to you. The service and sacrifices you are making today are all being done so that you will leave this world a better place for Malia and Sasha. Your spine is reinforced by a great, brilliant and beautiful woman in Michelle Obama. You look out over the universe and although there is so much negativity and ugliness to weigh you down you see the good in people. Somehow you are able to push past the filth and pinpoint the positive.
Obamacare is a gift that will keep on giving well into the future. No amount of media bashing, rightwing thrashing or some spineless Dems gnashing is going to stop this train from rolling on down the track.
The Obamacare train has left the station and it’s destination is affordable health care for all.
You can count on me and millions of others to make this a reality!!
Just beautiful Donna, morning.
Good Morning Chips!
After listening to him last night I again was reminded that half this country doesn’t deserve him.
Off to work I go. Have a great O’Day everyone!!!
G’morning, and thanks donna for this wonderful, touching and honest tribute to our President. This should be front-paged!! :)
Donna, this is a stunning and beautiful tribute and I hope you are forwarding it to the president, ASAP. I wish it were a letter that all of us could sign because I can’t think of a better expression of our collective feelings. There must be days when the president looks at the sorry media and the braying jackass Republicans and asks if he’s just casting pearls before swine. As we head into Thanksgiving season, as many of us as possible need to let him know that we recognize the value of the pearls he gives us and love and value him for continuing him to believe in and fight for us.
Well said Donna! I echo the words of gratitude you expressed for our President.
When we think about the things that this President is fighting for, how much of it directly benefits him? Little to none I suspect. Therefore, the fact that he is putting himself out there –enduring the abuse — for our benefit is further evidence of his character.
Like gifts that we complain about when we receive them, but appreciate them down the road, President Obama is a gift whose value many of us see now, but others will come to appreciate down the road.
Beautiful, Donna. You have expressed what so many of us think and feel.
Indeed she did, Diane. Elegantly so. I’m blown away.
WOW, Donna, this is precisely the truth. I really needed to read this right now. I feel shame for our horrible media and what it’s doing to our country. THANK YOU for restating the brilliance and goodness of our PBO.
Beautifulllllll and so Right ON!
Donna, you’re a gem! Thanks for pouring your heart out in support of President Obama and sharing it with us.

Toys are more interesting when it’s something they can do what I used to call “exploratory surgery” on. They are pretty persistent when trying to tear open a toy….especially if there is a squeeker inside. Strewing cotton stuffing around a room is a plus.
That new toy is totally useless unless someone is on the other end of that playing “Tug”. Chomp down on one end of that, Danny on the other, and Danny will be a happy boy. He’s lovingly cute, by the way.

5 stars to this Roger Simon Column! Just perfect. Made mincemeat of all the media types comparing Ocare to every tragedy known to man. Made clear the utter idiocy of all these people and their preposterous comparisons…
Is Obama a Lying Liar or Media Target? my column: politi.co/1cEGu0i— Roger Simon (@politicoroger) November 19, 2013
.@politicoroger does it again. He takes on his own colleague in the Media for saying PBO is a liar. politico.com/story/2013/11/… Thank you, Roger!— KSK(africa) (@lawalazu) November 19, 2013
This is a good column but I do take objection to this paragraph right here:
// “There is no good excuse for how badly Obama has screwed up thus far. The nation that has given the world Microsoft, Apple, Google, Facebook and Twitter should be able to produce a working website.” //
Roger is doing practically the same thing he accuses the media of doing – using false points of references and flawed analogies to criticize the President. I challenge anyone to show me the site statistics in the first month for any of those sites mentioned here. The TRUTH is that when those site were first developed and made accessible to the public, they were so OBSCURE, that very few people accessed them or even knew about them. I am sure they all had many glitches in the first 3-6 months – glitches which went largely unnoticed because they were not under any kind of media scrutiny, nor were they targeted by political opponents.
How many TODers created Twitter accounts the first month it started (March 2006) ? Ditto for Facebook, which was first launched in February 2004? This comparison is preposterous!!! Facebook was initially only available to students at Havard University, and then it was gradually expanded to the greater Boston area and eventually and gradually expanded to the public.
The TRUTH is that there has NEVER been a website rollout of a product of this magnitude EVER in U.S. history – and that’s a truth that NO one is willing to acknowledge.
I’m probably dense, but is that article satire…..I just couldn’t see the positive in it for the president. To me he was just recapitulating all the lies about the president, and letting them stand. And the comments at the bottom were awful…..I can’t even repeat them.
It seems like Roger wants to have it both ways- he appears to be calling out the media on one hand, but he still wants to get his cheap shots at the President, using the SAME approach that he supposedly attacks the media. The media folk do that all the time – play the good cop-bad cop game to suck people in and get clicks and views. But they are basically pushing the same agenda – they are not honest about this President and they are out to destroy him.
The president didn’t screw up- Sebelius did.
But she can’t be fired nobody will get thru senate. So that’s that!
Just an opinion.
Sebelius didn’t screw up either. If you make the claim that Sebelius screwed up, then you are blaming PBO as well, because she works FOR him and under his direction.
The TRUTH is, a rollout of this magnitude was BOUND to have glitches and problems at the outset – glitches that no one could have really foreseen since it was unprecedented. Those who don’t understand or refuse to acknowledge this simple truth really should not be weighing in on this issue.
ALL websites in the past have been allowed to have glitches, false starts, problematic rollouts with nary a peep about who “screwed up” or “whose Katrina it is” or any of that CRAP. The media, GOP (and some Democrats) have been targeting the ACA and PBO for their own nefarious purposes, and even a so-called smooth rollout would not have deterred them from manufacturing false memes. Look at how far some cable networks went to plant false stories about people losing their insurance!! And you want to blame Sebelius for that?
I don’t know it isn’t working well so somebody messed up. It’s not make believe though exaggerated.
No, it’s not “somebody” who messed up. It’s a combination of unfavorable factors working in concert which produced this result.
These factors include but are not limited to: Unprecedented traffic (millions of people trying to access the site), possible site hackers, communication problems, under-staffing, people not knowing about other ways to access the exchanges, media playing its usual role of confusing people deliberately, etc.
I read the article in R & S (I’m jumping all over 3 threads here to get a quick (??) picture of the day) and purposely didn’t retweet Roger’s because that very paragraph you quoted above jarred for me.
"The TRUTH is there has NEVER been a website rollout of a product of this magnitude EVER in U.S history" h/tHopefruit http://t.co/0Jhk2JJ1D7— Vick C. (@sonamie) November 19, 2013
Thanks so much vc! Had left for the day when you posted this comment and I just logged on to see your response. I will retweet. :)
Welcome back, H! :grin:
When people are doing the programming and testing to implement system, they try to anticipate all possible scenarios and address them. But these scenarios are in a controlled environment, and with the complexity of a system such as this, ALL the combinations of potential scenarios are probably impossible to cover. Add to it the bureaucracy involved in the purchase of hardware and software — when the need is justified AFTER the problems occur rather than before — there were going to be problems. Even if there had been an almost perfect roll-out, the focus would have been on the few people who may have had a problem with the website.
When Microsoft, Apple, et al roll out new software, why are there multiple versions and upgrades if the original implementation was as perfect as the healthcare.gov website is expected to be?
Plus, HF, let’s not forget about the deliberate cyber attacks and the determined effort by Republican governors to sabotage the program. If the ACA would have worked the way written and intended, the federal site would have simply redirected to state sites. Instead, these R states forced the feds to take on a task that was infinitely magnified in size and difficulty. I live in a state with one of those jackass governors and I can tell you they have done nothing but undermine the program at every turn. Reason number one why we have to get rid of them all.
You’re so right on this – no one seems to want to discuss the GOP sabotage efforts in their zeal to blame the President and call him and his administration a “screw-up.”
Two KEY LINES…..that says it all
“The TRUTH is, a rollout of this magnitude was BOUND to have glitches and problems at the outset – glitches that no one could have really foreseen since it was unprecedented.
ALL websites in the past have been allowed to have glitches, false starts, problematic rollouts with nary a peep about who “screwed up” or “whose Katrina it is” or any of that CRAP
Don’t forget when the Supreme Court ruled the states could choose whether to participate in the Medicade portion or not that was a BIG deal change. Also many GOP governor led states did not participate meaning many more people were relying on the fed system that would have been using a state system. That created a chaos for the computer system in itself. That was not anticipated very far in advance due to the timing of the decisions.
You’re right Obama Grandmama. There’s just not enough media emphasis on those GOP governors.
I’ll let him throw that crumb, given the fact that the roll out has been less than stellar, as PBO has repeatedly admitted. The main point of the column was the quadruple over-hyped hyped criticism of Ocare by the media types, all seemingly in a contest to top the last comparison, reaching ever further into historical disasters to win the contest. I liked that he called them out by name. Hello David Gregory. I think he shamed them and made laughable the level of hysterics they were willing to go. About a president trying to bring decent health care to all and a glitchy website.
Sorry, but I will NEVER allow false accusations of our President to fly just so that Roger can get his clicks for writing a column.
The truth is Roger is probably hi-fiving the same colleagues in the backroom while we imagine that he’s shaming them.
Unlike you, Roger did not say that the roll-out has been “less than stellar.” He put it in the worst possible way. PBO “screwed up” and “there is no good excuse.” The truth is, there IS a good excuse which is what I just mentioned.
And I don’t care what PBO “admits” or doesn’t “admit.” He’s the President and has to choose his words and responses very carefully – whether or not they match up to reality. I am under NO SUCH RESTRICTION and I speak the damn truth when it’s necessary.
We’re just going to have to agree to disagree on this hf. But Simon is an ol’ Chgo boy, and I know him pretty well. I know what he’s written about Barack Obama from the get go. I don’t buy the sinister intentions you assign him. And I notice many other Obama supporters are calling this Simon column “spot on”. But I like your fervor.
I don’t say that his intentions are sinister, but he’s toeing the MSM line at the moment. The other Obama supporters are entitled to their opinions just as I am entitled to mine.
But yes, we’ll agree to disagree on this topic.
I totally agree about the Rogers article, HF. He went way off the reservation with the “Obama screwed up” stuff. After all the president has done to conceive of and fight for health care, they make a big deal of a website? The president does not write code, as he said. The website had problems and he was immediately on it to fix it. To me, that’s great leadership. There has not been one major program in history that hasn’t had start up problems. National programs are necessarily complex and there are always alternatives for going on line. I found Medicare options difficult to understand. But I, and millions of other seniors like me, persevered and got answers and those who truly want health care will do the same. And I’m sick and tired of hearing that the President “lied”–intentionally or not. PBO presented the information he had at the time. He knew about the “grandfathering” and he knew that 80 percent of Americans were on employer provided health insurance. The health insurance industry deliberately screwed people over and and made what the president said seem untrue. That’s not hard to grasp, but no one has even tried. Roger can go suck an egg.
Exactly! Very-well stated Jackie.
We’ve known for quite some time that most Republican governors refused to open health insurance exchanges in their states. 27 states don’t have exchanges and therefore uninsured residents are shuffled over to the Healthcare.gov website to buy a policy.
However, earlier this month, we learned that Republican Party leadership directly urged those governors not to do it — chiefly to burden the federal exchange with a heavier load.
Worse yet, the ACA contained zero funding for the development and implementation of the site, and there’s no way the congressional Republicans would ever authorize more money for it. It’s unclear why the federal exchange was unfunded in the law, but one thing’s for sure, a House of Representatives that voted 46 times to totally repeal the law wouldn’t have coughed up a dime to rectify the oversight.
So, what happened? A cash-starved Healthcare.gov development process, which precipitated serious glitches when October 1 rolled around — problems that should never have occurred.
And those glitches might’ve been exacerbated when right-wing hacktivists reportedly conducted “denial of service” attacks against Healthcare.gov — deliberate attempts to overwhelm the website’s servers. CNN reported on Monday:
Read the rest there….we ALL have to do our part to fight against this despicable, desperate behavior. Every day.
Big clue…Koch $$$ and lots of it. I wish those two would choke on their caviar.
Hf, that two such vicious, vile fascists, who are on NO ballots, have such control over our country is the scandal of the century. These traitors should be arrested and jailed for all the ugly things they have done to undermine our democracy. I know they’re in their 80s and one is in ill health. I hope they have no children so the next generation of Americans can be free of their evil influence.

GOP UNPRECEDENTED OBSTRUCTION GETS SCANT MEDIA COVERAGE
PFAW Memo: GOP Exceeds Expectations…on Executive Branch Obstruction
Earlier this year, People For the American Way released an analysis showing the unprecedented level of obstruction faced by President Obama’s nominees to the executive branch. At that time, 16 of the President’s nominees to the executive branch of government had faced filibusters from Republican senators and were the subject of cloture votes after Republicans refused to allow an up-or-down vote on their nominations. That number was on pace to reach 28 nominees by the end of President Obama’s second term.
Since then, things have only gotten worse.
In the last four months, eight additional executive branch nominees have faced filibusters from Republicans intent on blocking their nominations.
Stark reminder that while we deal with the GOP/MSM sabotage & sedition here, there’s dire stuff going on around the world that also needs PBO’s attention:

Healthcare plan enrollment surges in some states after rocky rollout
Healthcare insurance enrollment increases in some states that run their own exchanges, boosting hopes of Obamacare backers.
A number of states that use their own systems, including California, are on track to hit enrollment targets for 2014 because of a sharp increase in November, according to state officials.
“What we are seeing is incredible momentum,” said Peter Lee, director of Covered California, the nation’s largest state insurance marketplace, which accounted for a third of all enrollments nationally in October. California — which enrolled about 31,000 people in health plans last month — nearly doubled that in the first two weeks of this month.
Several other states, including Connecticut and Kentucky, are outpacing their enrollment estimates, even as states that depend on the federal website lag far behind. In Minnesota, enrollment in the second half of October ran at triple the rate of the first half, officials said. Washington state is also on track to easily exceed its October enrollment figure, officials said.
“Outpacing enrollment estimates”——This is the Real Story.
