Iceberg, dead ahead! You are losing you media allies, Obama. It's taken far too long, but your horrible results, smug attitude, disrespect for our laws, and failed policies had to catch up eventually. You can't defend this loser any longer. Too much corruption, lies, paranoia, deceit , failures and broken promises to sweep under the rug. You have three years to seal your fate, and that fate is the single biggest political failure in our nations history.

If Mr. Obama hadn't willfully misrepresented his signature achievement "If you like your insurance, you can keep it. Period." he would not have been reelected. And now that he is lawlessly changing the rules like a third world dictator he has reminded people why we shouldn't trust big government.

His only accomplishment was killing Bin Laden, his healthcare bill will end up adding trillions to the deficit and slowing the economy further. Once the feds slow down or stop dumping 85 billion a month into the maket that will tank taking the housing market with it. Unemployment is virtually unchanged, 70% of the jobs created since January are part time, i'm not seeing much to savor.

Politicfact The article: Lie of the Year: 'If you like your health care plan, you can keep it' By Angie Drobnic Holan Published on Thursday, December 12th, 2013 at 4:44 p.m. Related rulings: "What we said was, you can keep (your plan) if it hasn’t changed since the law passed." Barack Obama, Monday, November 4th, 2013. Ruling: Pants on Fire! | Details "FACT: Nothing in #Obamacare forces people out of their health plans." Valerie Jarrett, Monday, October 28th, 2013. Ruling: False | Details We counted dozens of times that President Barack Obama said that if people liked their health plans, they could keep them. It was a catchy political pitch and a chance to calm nerves about his dramatic and complicated plan to bring historic change to America’s health insurance system. "If you like your health care plan, you can keep it," President Barack Obama said -- many times -- of his landmark new law.

Fast and Furious. Benghazi. NSA. IRS. "I promise to cut the unpatriotic (10 trillion dollars) deficit in half. Current deficit 17 trillion. Shovel ready jobs. Solyndra. Fisker. GM stock sale, 10 plus billion tax dollars GONE. Meet with Netenyahu? No, must go on the View and MTV. If I had a son, he would look like Trayvon. You could go on, and on, and on, and on. What a complete failure this community activist has been. You Obama voters have done MAJOR damage to America.
