Meant to be addressed to all the not so smart people... the Dems.

Are you sorry you voted to re-elect Obama?
Obamacare was enacted by a political party, the Democrats. The bipartisan discussion beforehand ceased once the individual mandate was introduced. Then the Republicans dug in their heels. The Dems had a majority and said "fine" and Obamacare was voted in strictly on a partisan basis.
Now everyone's told it's "the law of the land" in spite of website failures, increased costs, insurance policies cancelled to comply with the law, etc., etc.
It was a political move to pass this faulty law, and it'll be political moves to get rid of this faulty law.
Such is political life in the US. If one party gets the votes, things happen. That's EXACTLY how Obamacare came about in the first place, by majority vote.
If people don't like what's happened to them under Obamacare, there are elections to register their disapproval. First one, 2014.

"They said the samething about Bush's part D and they said the same thing about Romneycare. Maybe if the Red States would of set up their own Exchanges it wouldn't of cost so must. I thought Red States didn't like the Federal Government running the show and I thought the conservatives were the fiscal conservative party but I was wrong on both accounts

How much does the current President of the United States know about what's going on in his own administration?
Benghazi (RR's favorite)?
Fast and Furious?
Does the POTUS know anything about his present administration? Or is the government running itself?

This candidate was elected by promising these things. I don't know exactly what people were hoping when they voted for this candidate, but these days, the promises have not only been broken, but it turns out that they were never true...
"...when they made the promise, they knew half the people in this market outright couldn’t keep what they had and then they wrote the rules so that others couldn’t make it either,” said Robert Laszewski, of Health Policy and Strategy Associates, a consultant who works for health industry firms."
Who was the candidate? The current President of the United States.
“No matter how we reform health care, we will keep this promise to the American people: If you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor. Period. If you like your health care plan, you will be able to keep your health care plan. Period. No one will take it away. No matter what. My view is that health-care reform should be guided by a simple principle: Fix what’s broken and build on what works.”
"You know good and well, that those statements were used in many of the congressional districts by the right wing."
And, according to you, Republicans were elected because voters believed they had to or they'd be traitors to their country? Hoo boy...
Let's revisit another campaign, with more campaign words. (I have to change direction, because you changed direction in not answering my question twice, but I digress.)
AMA June 2009....
Oh whistler, isn't that a cute one..."I requested a removal myself."
Everyone on here knows your other alias went bye bye when he told that vulgar joke about our President. You, yourself were responsible for your own termination. No one but you.
starrett1 great posts...but the blind can't see or hear the truth on little o
I repeat since you can't seem to comprehend anything and twist it to your warped thinking.
"150 and counting...that is really something to boast about and how did that happen...who's to blame but yourself!"
We should be responsible for our own actions but you need to see your Doctor and maybe he can help you. Dr. Phil maybe and you could appear on his show.
You should know all about name changes and did you ever consider I requested a removal myself.
Do you blame me for getting Hope4Change kicked off here?

150 and counting...that is really something to boast about and how did that happen...who's to blame but yourself! Ya just suppose it might be just some old lady from Pasadena that is following this site and oh, how could it be, doesn't like you.
Maybe it's our little Centerfold who can swing in whatever the dear little thing want too.
Crying towels are needed at the MDN.

starlett1, starrlet, BDGI, donnamay....What don't you understand about this site? Are you both unable to have civil discourse with no name calling?
I have over 150 comments removed and over 90% that were removed were me quoting you 2. Why are you so angry? According to you, you are winning and will win in a landslide. You should be happy not hateful. Maybe I just don't get what it is that Republicans desire. Good luck in the future and try to stay within the guidelines of the Minot Daily News.
How about just chilling out on the name calling?
You are a little (lot) slow on the up-take today, loco. I was following up on your statement but because you did not have a credible argument against my statement, you again try to change the direction and pretend to be oh so innocent. You know good and well, that those statements were used in many of the congressional districts by the right wing. It was done and it was dirty, but that is what the followers of Rush, Karl, and the winger political machine do best.

"I doubt anyone in North Dakota has heard of Reid Ribble. He’s a Republican congressman from Wisconsin who is best known for scolding a Catholic nun for not doing enough to help the poor. Heckuva guy.
During the government shutdown, Ribble sent a letter to Republican House Speaker John Boehner in which he suggested that the budget negotiations were a wonderful opportunity to go after Social Security.
North Dakota’s own tea party congressman, Kevin Cramer, signed the letter supporting this nutty scheme.
I have a better plan to save Social Security: Toss Cramer and Ribble out of Congress."
The 2014 elections are only a year away, give or take a few days.
centerish has already started the campaign.
All these years to keep track of...
OK, so I missed it on 2002. Let me rephrase....
So THAT'S why people voted for Republicans in the off-year election of 2002? Because they were afraid of being called traitors?
I've heard some people voted for Pres. Obama twice, because they didn't want to be called racists. Is that true?
Let's see you answer that question, centerish...

Maybe they will take into consideration that the right wingers were ready to trash the US Economy again and drive the Country into default. They also might want to take into consideration the 400 filibusters, the obstructionism of the House/Senate, and farm bill, budget bill, immigration bill, and jobs bills that have been in Boehnor's desk for up to two+ years. There might just be looking at the lousy economics of the previous three Republican administrations because as your hero Ronald Reagan once said- "deficits don't matter?????"
I can't wait to see what name whistler will come up with next.
garr bage man, how many times have you been trashed here?
So, loco, has some of bdgi rubbed off on you? You brought up the mid term elections of 2002 and George was not running. The increase in seats gained was from the rhetoric used by Cheney, Rove, and the rest to con the people. Yep, loco, you don't get off that easily on changing the direction. He got the bounce in the off year election because of the rhetoric used by Republicans which was based on a liars war. People voted for Obama in both elections because they reject the Republican direction and don't trust the Republicans based on their history.
