9. Didn't you love what Rachel Maddow did last night?

Now they're excusing it by their lame-ass blathering that somehow we're "cooking the books." 'Cause they were JUST SUUUUUUURE things were gonna go the way the bad guys wanted and expected. WRONG, AGAIN!!!!!!

I loved the segment she did - with all these video clips of these pompous know-it-all buttheads just so sure wrongney was gonna wipe the floor with President Obama in 2012. Just SURE! And they had the "statistics" to prove it. And every prediction they made was complete and total BUNK. Based on NOTHING. And worth just as much. And there was Rachel, quietly smiling and holding up various signs blaring what REALLY happened, EVERY time, as in - Obama WON. Every "wrongney's gonna have 300+ electoral votes and this and that and blah-blah-blah" - WRONG - AGAIN!!!!!!

WRONG, kkkarl rove.

WRONG, charles krauthammer.

WRONG, dick morris.

WRONG, lou dobbs.

WRONG, stuart varney.

WRONG, larry kudlow.

WRONG, WRONG, WRONG.

39. And I must say one thing more. Every time I see megyn kelly, there's part of me that questions

whoever's in charge of her makeup job. EVERYTHING below the cheekbones and down to her jawline and across her chin and the skin between her nose and upper lip - is noticeably darker and shadowy. Looks like she's literally got a 5 o'clock shadow workin' there. What the hell???? I don't know why they do that to her. It isn't even fair.

The makeup might be ok, but there might be a light overhead that's too light, or lighting directed at her that isn't compensating for too much brightness above.

what Rush Limbaugh thinks about ANYTHING. When I tune in to progressive radio, I'm not really looking to be entertained, but informed. Most days, Randi does that.

11. Republican exploding head syndrome - a preexisting condition now covered thanks to Obamacare!

One of the funniest parts is they coined the phrase Obamacare and made it stick. What they didn't expect was it being a success and the ACA going down in history as "Obamacare." Every time a person uses their new insurance they know who to thank, and it's sure not the Republicans who are working on their 51st wasted vote to repeal it.

14. Helping millions when they are sick

That is what Democrats should run on - and get the word out - in the next congressional elections. Screw poll numbers - explain it simply and run on it enthusiastically. Poll numbers will go up when you do that. As for repubs, if you don't want to help millions when they're sick, you shouldn't be in public office.

27. They are sure the law will somehow collapse under its own weight, this year, or next, or eventually

They bet it all on fighting the ACA. They can't live in a world where it succeeds and they deeply resent anyone getting any benefit because they must be a taker. I don't get any subsidies and I still get accused of being a deadbeat by Repubs.

Conservative certainty is an amazing thing to observe. Remember the Iraq war, cold war, and most other fairy tales they believe in? Their economic plans have been debunked so many times yet they are certain beyond any doubt that rich people need much more money to create jobs, not the rest of us who consume and spend more of our money. Facts and evidence won't sway such people. Listen to them spew pure nonsense like its snowing outside so global warming is obviously fake.

These are people of faith, not science.

48. This news is a BFD. Look at KY - Mr. Mitch`s home sate

"Obamacare has cut Kentucky's uninsured population by more than 40 percent, signing up roughly 360,000 residents since enrollment opened up on Oct. 1, according to the Louisville Courier-Journal.

Some 75 percent of them -- 270,000 -- were previously uninsured. That means Kentucky's uninsured population of 640,000 has come down by 42 percent."

http://obamacaresignups.net/14/04/01/kentucky-corrected-331-totals-77k-qhps-294k-medicaid

Also, it has taken 50 years for LBJ to get the credit he deserves for passing Civil Rights, Medicare, Medicaid, etc. I hope that in 50 years, Obamacare gets the same as it gets better with age. Nancy Pelosi saved the bill in 2010. She deserves a place on Mt. Rushmore as history will be kind to her.

I received my new cards on Monday. I have yet to get my policy info or my bill to pay.

I'm told the bill and my policy will show up somewhere between 2 and 3 weeks.

When it does, I'm going to be paying BC/BS not 'Obamacare' or 'the government' so, when they say people haven't paid for their Obamacare yet, it's nothing but a red herring.

62. MUST SEE: Glenn Beck Goes Insane Over Obamacare Enrollment Numbers! (Video)

Josh Kilburn
April 2, 2014







If you ever took a chemistry class in high school, odds are, one of the first things you wanted to do was make something blow up. Today, Glenn Beck was that chemistry experiment.


While he was reviewing the Obamacare enrollment figures, he had an utter meltdown on air. Having reached critical mass, he launched into a tantrum, calling the media “rat bastards” for not holding President Obama responsible for his, “pathological lying.”


Perhaps some projection is at play here?
