    Health-care law has changed game for Democrats looking to 2014 election

    UPPER DUBLIN, Pa. — Few places may better explain how the bungled launch of President Obama’s health-care law has scrambled the political landscape for Democrats than this hamlet north of Philadelphia.

    Democrats have been hoping to capitalize on the political fallout for the GOP from the recent government shutdown. If they can do so anywhere, it should be in the suburbs north and west of the city where three adjoining congressional districts represent a confluence of Democratic Party ambitions for the 2014 midterm elections.

    The 13th District is represented by Allyson Y. Schwartz, a popular five-term Democrat who is the leading candidate for governor against a Republican incumbent widely regarded as the most vulnerable in the country.

    The two other districts are held by moderate Republicans: Rep. Patrick Meehan in the 7th and Rep. Michael G. Fitzpatrick in the 8th. Obama won both in 2008 and lost both by less than one percentage point in 2012. If Democrats are going to get anywhere near the 18 seats they need to take control of the House in 2014, these two are must-wins, and a few weeks ago, with the GOP suffering in public opinion polls, everything seemed possible for Democrats.

    The Affordable Care Act may have changed that....

    1. It didn't help that this thoughtless man flew into phila airport at 6:00 pm that Thursday during rush hour and tied people up for hours. He lost as many votes with his rush hour fund raiser with the head of comcast/nbc then any money he raised. Guess he was letting nbc they better get with the program.

  3. On the other hand, delusion continues: ...[Sue Dvorsky, a former special-education teacher and state Democratic Party chairman] said she thinks HealthCare.gov will be functioning well by the Nov. 30 deadline because that’s what the president said. “If I’m wrong, there’s going to be phenomenal pain.”...

  4. So, I guess because they send Obama out to “apologize” are we supposed to forget everything that happened, are we supposed to forget all the lies, are we supposed to forget all the promises, are we supposed to forget all the payoffs, are we supposed to forget all the backroom deals, are we supposed to forget all their absurd claims? Are we supposed to forget “If you like your health care plan, you’ll be able to keep your health care plan, Period”
    Are we supposed to forget what the word “Period” means?

    The answer is obvious. We are not going to forget any of these false promises, and claims. and lies! Wake the hell up you American’s who voted twice for this monster Liar. Vote Republican or independent and insist that this disaster gets overturned!
    Is water wet? Does a Bear crap in the wood? Is the sky blue? Is Obama a Liar?
    He is even being called a liar by his own party now.
    Obama lives and breathes lies. And all these freaks on the left can remember is George Bush!

    On the other hand, I guess that you SHOULDN'T worry... because he told us that he has a plan.

  6. By pushing his leftist, socialist ways, this is the most direct, frontal and egregious assault on the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness in over 240 years. Not even Bill ClintonI stooped to this level.

  7. Obama is my savior and he knows what's right, and those evil Republicans who want to protect America from Obamacare, and from Socialism are so going to lose in 2014 and I say good riddance to the whole bunch of them. . Who cares if Obama has a 35% approval rating/ All the people who disapprove of him are racists, and those who voted for him in 2008 but not now are just a bunch of closet racists. Who cares that millions of Americans will lose their current health coverage? Obama promises free healthcare for me, and who cares if other people have to pay the tab! Those wealthy people would rather deny all their employees healthcare than give up 1 of their 1,000,000 Gulfstream jets, yachts, and giant Cayman Islands hedge funds.
    I was so depressed last night listening to a Right-Wing talk show about the economy, wars, jobs, my savings, Social Security, retirement funds, etc., I called the Suicide Hotline. I got a call center in Pakistan , and when I told them I was suicidal, they got all excited, and asked if I could drive a truck...
    And who cares if we're violating the rights of conservatives via the IRS? Conservatives are just a bunch of racists who hate Obama. They deserve to be targeted. They want to take away my food stamps! I deserve to be like any other American and surf, play in a band at bars, and do nothing while getting to eat lobster and sushi every day. I don't know much about Benghazi, but only 5 Americans died, so what’s the big deal? When Bush killed thousands by lying about 9/11. Clearly, it was an inside job by the government. And who cares about the NSA? I would never trust Bush to spy but Obama is the one. Anyone whose e-mail he targets is clearly for a good reason, just like the IRS.
    The one thing about these blogging board that most baffles me is the incredible depth of hatred and contempt for liberals.
    The amount of comments from people suggesting all liberals are stupid, anti-patriotic, dumb...you name it. One even suggested liberals don't know what paragraphs are.
    I just don't get it. And I don't see anything the like the contempt expressed by liberals towards conservatives.
    Protesting, and picketing are paet of the American way.
    Firstly, the term "liberal" could be used to describe about half of the planet. Like "leftist", it's a fairly cliched catch-all adjective that have little real meaning. It's just too general to be much use.
    Secondly, I've met a few, and very few intelligent people from right across the political spectrum - and as many idiots. I've talked to brilliant facists, idiotic conservatives, intelligent communists and brain-dead centrists. I don't see a pattern there at all.

    And lastly, why hate liberals when many of the most successful and celebrated administrations have been liberal ones, like Former Presidents Carter and Clinton, and now we have another one in President Barack Obama. And others in the party such as Harry Ried and Nancy Pelosi.
    Look, the Dems are going to do AMAZING in 2014. The tea party racists just hate poor people and only care about the rich. This is why Obama stands up for working Americans, as the #1 recipient of contributions from Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, who had ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to do with the mortgage crisis. And Obama's donations from trial lawyers who get rich suing businesses are fighting for the PEOPLE. Who cares if they cost jobs? Those jobs aren't worth having, just like the health insurance people have now is lousy insurance. The GOP and the Tea Party is Doomed in 2014 If you disagree, you're a RACIST! And you know what, you're a RACIST anyway!

  10. Porter,

    GOOD ONE BUDDY!! Why make us wait so long for more?

  11. It's often been said, "A woman has the right to change her mind."

    Does this then mean that our esteemed president is a CLOSET WOMAN?

    Is our president nothing more than a FLIBBERTIGIBBET?

    More like a WEATHERVANE, I suspect.

    Hail to the VACILLATOR-in-CHIEF!

    Or maybe we should just come right out and say:

    OBAMA should go down in history as THE GREAT PREVARICATOR.

  12. "He speaks, yet he says nothing. What of that his eye discourses -- I will answer it. Nay! I am too bold. 'Tis no o me he speaks ..."

    Barack Obama as Romeo's vision of JULIET?

    YES! I see it very clearly now, don't you? ;-)

  13. "YES! I see it very clearly now, don't you? ;-)"

    Why yes, for about the last five years. Is that supposed to be a new revelation?

    ReplyDelete
  14. Hardly a revelation, Jon, it's supposed to be FUNNY.

    In order to enjoy the benefit of a joke, however, one first must have a highly developed sense of humor -- a capacity most sadly deficient everywhere I happen to go in the blogosphere.

    Very sadly we live more and more in an Age of Dreary, Plodding, Dull-Witted LITERALISM -- an age devoid of wit, humor, the enjoyment of figurative language, the ability to draw parallels, benefit from allusion, parable, parody or satire.
