“Read my lips”, “I am not a crook”, and now “you can keep your coverage” has been added to the long list of infamous quotes by some of our presidents. A president and his administration can only be effective as long as they have credibility with the average American on the street. This being the case the Obama administration is now beginning to realize that they are in big trouble with the president’s words from several years ago when he said that if you were happy with your existing insurance then you would be able to keep it. Unfortunately for millions of Americans that has not turned out to be true. To make matters worse not only have many lost their insurance but they also are facing paying a lot more for insurance that ironically is not any better.
The younger Bush faced a similar scenario when the average American essentially no longer trusted the administration after Hurricane Katrina. His presidency, which was already becoming crippled because of the incompetence in Iraq, was permanently wounded after Katrina and never did recover. Now the Obama administration is facing the same dilemma. People already had doubts but for what ever reason (probably a media failing to do their job) they still had some trust in President. Benghazi, the IRS Scandal, and now the biggest lie of all about Obama Care and this president has officially lost all credibility. Now America is faced with colossal failure with Obama Care and a President who will say anything (like trying to deny he said people could keep their same coverage) to dodge responsibility. 2016 can’t get here soon enough.

After Romney lost the 2012 election I remember reading how his campaign struggled during the election day with a faulty computer program that was central in their “get out the vote” initiative, for those interested that story is here ORCA, Mitt Romney’s high-tech get-out-the-vote program, crashed … The program was code named ORCA and on election day it failed badly resulting in the Romney group pretty much flying blind during crucial periods of the day. Contrast this with the Obama campaign’s reportedly super effective data mining operation and you can see how states that were close might have gone to Obama just because of IT. What if this was no coincidence though? What if the Chinese played a role in crashing Romney’s computer networks? To be fair I have not been able to find any evidence linking the crash of ORCA and Chinese hackers but here is what we do know. The facts are that the Chinese constantly hack US government computers, they also have been accused of hacking both the Obama and McCain campaigns in 2008, Chinese hacked Obama, McCain campaigns, say US officials – …. On top of all the above a recent article from Time on one of their blogs called Swampland talks about how the Romney campaign was constantly under attack by Chinese hackers, that story here The Hunt for Pufferfish. To better understand the threat the Chinese posed to the Romney campaign and how serious the campaign took it take a look at this excerpt from the story.
“Myers set up her operation in a the third- floor office on Boston’s Commercial Street that became known as the “clean room”. Because the Romney campaign’s servers were under continual assault by Chinese hackers, the computers in the clean room were not connected to the Internet”.
Also realizing that Romney was taking a decidedly tougher stance on China than the Obama campaign and you can quickly see how this is not out of the realm of possibilities. Also please note I am not saying the Obama campaign had anything to do with this.
