Barack Obama lied to get his (un)Affordable Health Care Act passed. Why is no one in uproar over this? If this was Bush the dummycrats and (un)liberals would be asking for his head.

Sorry--you can't impeach by political party. Bush 1 and 2 lied....and they were not even questioned. America is NOT of, by, and for Republicans!
I do believe they should all be held accountable for what they say. To have elected officials we can't believe is not a great confidence builder for we the people. This applies to any elected official regardless of party.
We all say things that don't pan out. We all try and put the best spin on ourselves...why are they put up to impossible demands? Didn't use to be. But that pr person of Bush 1 made it politics of personal destruction, and that's where we are stuck.
Both Bush's are history and it is time to move on. With proper leadership most issues can be resolved. We just don't have that today and won't until we replace many of them in office today. No President can win without support from Congress.
And no part of congress is supposed to be above the other branches. And as long as these people continue to push for impeachment of Obama--I will talk about Bush.
There's lovemychris living in the past again as we fry the fish of the future. Citing bush at this point is totally stupid. We are living in the present right now. At least some of us are.
Yes, I choose to not forget such behavior. Remember, we can only heal when we admit we did wrong. Moving on from such treachery is not in my vocabulary. I love America too much to have that load of dog crap as our legacy.
The nation has reached a new level of cesspool as the top leadership continues to drive toward destructive socialism. The nation is in crisis with a charleton in charge. Deceit abounds in Washington that places every citizen at risk. Some deny truth.
This question sure brought out the ignorant, redneck mouthbreathers out of the weeds!
I know. Everyone knew the Obama worshipers would come running when this question was posted.
I find it amazing that the people who do not like Obama are labeled as ignorant mouthbreathers and other offensive insults denoting ignorance. I also noted that those who like Obama are the labelers, while the others are explaining reasons and facts.
Becky - the worshipers must follow the Rules for Radicals. It is the only way they can continue to protest in a manner that they understand. Anything else is too much for their little feeble damaged brains to handle. They seek no truth nor facts.
Ahaha! Did you miss the insults the other side used?
"airhead idiots,blowhards and weeping worshipers"....which reason and facts are those?
airhead-air where brains should be.
blowhards-a person who blusters and boasts in an unpleasant way
weeping worshipers-angry by finding that they are following a deceitful loser
childish leadership spreading divisive propaganda with false promises
Mouthbreathers: people who breathe with their mouths.
Redneck:people who work outdoors.
Ignorant: people who are not up on the facts.
This is worth crying about?
Becky - you are correct. The solution is to rid ourselves of the tyranny currently operating as our government. That means the citizens must replace all current seat holders. Colorado did this with 2 of their worst. The citizens must do it also.
You got that right - sort a like the fox guarding the hen house isn't it. What's the fox say?
"knowingly lying" I haven't seen any evidence that Obama intentionally or "knowingly" lied about anything. His statement was apparently erroneous for a relatively small group of people but not a lie.
Ralph is reality stepped up and smacked you dead in your face you might just sleep through it. Obama lied when he told people they could keep there health insurance if they liked it. Ralph turn off MSNBC and start actually doing heavy research.
They can. It just has to comply with the new law. We all know insurance companies love getting over on people, but that day is over. The lie was that insurance companies had anything to do with health! Twas all about money.No more. Cry all you want.
You are correct The Frog Prince. The Senate leader would never let it happen. He continues to support the lies with further deceit. The truth is that they wish to destroy the free nation that is so great. The want to transform the USA into socialism.
Even MSNBC is now reporting that the Obama knew a millions of Americans would loose there coverage. To be frank, Obamacare HAD to be engineered that way to force people onto the exchange. Otherwise it wont work.
Obamacare will never work because the model is flawed.
it requires the healthy to pay more to get nothing in return while those who abuse themselves pay little or nothing.
the youth will find a way to work the system even if it means paying the fine
They are not losing their coverage. They are getting coverage that complies with the new law. We all know R's don't mind breaking laws, but still. Insurance can no longer rip people off to their hearts content, and that's a very good thing.
Frog, you must have heard the apology - Barachio didn't lie, he gave assurances and is sorry for those who lost their healthcare plan based on his assurances...add to your dictionary - new definition of assurances: LIES
Bush is still alive and healthy enough to stand trial. Why don't we start there?
lovemychris, I wouldn't mind that, and he has predecessors still alive that should be held just as accountable.
His predecessor was impeached. Billions and billions worth of public monies spent to do it too. *USA USA*. Bush was allowed to testify, but not under oath. You see why I have no faith in any of this? It's a rigged game, and R's hold all the cards.
honest loyal patriots do not shirk the responsibility to protect the nation from destruction whether it is rigged or not.
honest loyal patriots fight the lying riggers with all their might.
united we stand-divided we fall.
are u united?
I'm not united with you, that's quite clear. I see the Bushies as enemy, and you see Obamaies. How can you unite with that? You come over to my side....then we'll talk. OK? Cause I'm never going back to yours. Period.
lovemychris, no I actually don't. Clinton faced impeachment proceedings but he was cleared by the good ole boys in the Senate.
lovemychris we will never agree because you continue to spread propaganda rather than speak the truth. I do not take sides with those that support lies and deceit. The current radical does not negotiate because he would have to work with truth.
Oh Ok...My side lies and your side has the truth. Is that is? Prime reason we don't unite.I see your side as lying & deceitful. And you can't abide that, can you?At least you don't get called an America hater 24/7. My side has INFINATELY more cla
lovemychris - I do not pick sides - I am a patriot that works as an American should - through truth. Those that pick sides based on propaganda continue to destroy the nation. Deceit and lies spread by the current administration need to be eliminated.
You have picked a side by saying the president is lying and deceitful.The rest of us voted for him, and don't believe you. Get it?You are anti-Obama. That is a side. And as one who was anti-Bush: you get off easy for your dissent. Ipatriot to thecore
lovemychris-there you go again clambering with your side kicks. As a patriot I work and follow for the truthful. You may want to follow the deceitful and immoral. I do not. You may worship at the altar of lies. I do not. You spread untruths. I do not
I wonder, Obama is only half black. I wonder is he had a white complexion if he could even have been elected president. I doubt it.
George Bush blatantly lied, and they didn't even try! As long as one party thinks they are superior, this will continue.
Dude, you need to get off the Democrat high horse. Neither party cares about you or me. And yes, the dems did try to impeach Bush, but since they were a minority in Congress at the time, they didn't have the votes to pull it off.
Truthfully, there were only 2 Dems that tried. But as you said, R's were in charge, and would have none of it. They are in charge of impeachment process now too: and ODDLY ENUFF-now they want to! Such principled people, huh? Should they try: suicide.
To get the real picture of what really goes on in Washington, forget what party they belong to and judge by their actions. You might be amazed at what you learn.
lovemychris, why are you so intent on Republican bashing? There is no difference between the two parties. Each is a self serving group of political elites. There are only a handful in each party that arent...and I don't include Obama in the handful
well, as of today--millions have less to eat, while corporate giving has no bounds. That shows me a lot. Food is a luxury, while luxury to some is free.
You have the idea of impeachment all wrong - Bill Clinton WAS impeached which means to charge the president with improper conduct in office before the congress. It does not mean to remove a president. A proven liar should absolutely be impeached.
I don't agree with you.Having suffered the 8 years of a Republican presidency, it was time for my vote to matter! It hasn't. It has been blocked by a handful of radicals, who we already dealt with from 2000-2008! I want my gvt back. Democrats won!
Your government? What exactly are you looking for? I would take any government that could clean up the corruption and waste, and actually solve some problems. This administration has clearly divided the country and that is a real shame.
lovemychris, you apparently overlooked the kickback that Obama gave to big business for the obammycare debacle. truth is - you seem to be a covert dumborat that will always introduce nonsense rather than truth for any discussion.
Obama did not divide, the obstructionists did....by design. I am looking for the Obama gvt: without the bats in the belfry biting at his heels. Koo-koo birds of the new millennium.>>instead of caw caw, it's waa waa
Obama snubbs anyone who disagrees with him, and only gives lip service to working together. As much as I din't like Bush (JR or SR) or Clinton, at least they tried working with the other party. As did Regan, Carter, JFK, Ike...
TOTALLY disagree! Bush didn't work with: he commanded. Obama opened his hand and it got slapped. We all see things differently I guess.
command - the most powerful and important leaders
hand slap - something that happens to children when they are bad
Bush command: leadership
Obama command: tyranny
hand slap: something a parent does to a child. Grown people who treat other grown people as children, are egotists with a superiority complex.
There is help for that.
Actually, we've impeached two: Johnson and Clinton. And even if they are not removed from office, their record is besmirched by their deeds. History will show that the people were unwilling to totally overlook their antics.
Overlook? It was a billions dollar witch-hunt from the day Clinton took office! This was R house and R senate. And they got a D president.Came time to their man--like pulling teeth to investigate, and he was NOT under oath! Political Justice. Just-Us
Texas Rep. Steve Stockman, Texas Lt. Gov. Dewhurst are 2 calling for it so far. But just wait...they had RMoney doing his bit today: the gang-bang is set to begin.
Agreed. Plenty of legal minds in DC. Plus the simple reality that the democrats will stick together no matter what, which means no Senate confirmation for an impeachment.
Impeachment is just the filing of charges. Bill Clinton was the second President in History to be impeached although he wasn't removed - unlike the Nobel prize gifted to BO he has earned being the 3rd to be impeached - lets give him that legacy.
according to law pertaining to Healthcare, Obama has committed fraud by stating multiple times that "If you like your health insurance, you can keep your health insurance. Period." The law is applicable to all false statements concerning healthcare.
I heard there are people considering bringing that court case but I thought senior executive branch officials are immune to that sort of prosecution.
amen to that
You mean like the Cheney/Bush/Rumsfeld lies about WMD in Iraq? How do you feel about them? Did you advocate impeaching Bush?
Ralph? Is anybody there between those ears of yours Ralph? Bush and company are gone Ralph. We are frying different fish now. Wake up from your slumber and stop living in the past Ralphie.
No we're not. Bush and his crew never paid for what they did, and no one else has anything to worry about until they do. It's very simple. Until Bush is prosecuted, you can kiss any other prez doing so goodbye.And Bush's people still populate the gvt
It never amazes me that pathetic people always shout that lying should be permitted for the current President because so many others have done it. These airhead idiots will always follow the deceitful because it fits their life style.
1st:airhead idiots is a new one. 2nd: The only way to heal is fix it, not sweep it under the rug. The rug sweepers have made our floor filthy dirty. Needs to be cleaned...from under the rug. That's 2000-2008 rug, love. No more sweeping for youze.
As has been said earlier, if we want to go back to the first Pres. that lied to the people, we may have to go back to George Washington, and if not him, certainly John Adams. What is the obsession with defending either Obama or Bush? Or any other?
Oh I don't know. A little thing called Integrity, I guess. After the horror that went before, they have a lot of nerve suggesting we ignore it, but get this one now. It's galling, actually, and an indication of their huge superiority complex.
the blowhards and weeping worshipers continue to fanaticize as the nation descends into the pit of socialism. a denial of knowledge by the President for every failure sure is childish. but those who worship cling to it like parasites draining scum.
How's it feel to put yourself above the over half of this country who voted for President Obama?
Make you feel like a King?--like Rafael Cruz, who had the audacity to insult our prez with his racist crap?
Make you feel all giddy to be so Superior?SMH
Bush's "lie" was an intelligence assessment and there had been WMDs in Iraq and it's very possible that there were WMDs at the time. None were found, but saying that there were not any is to overstate based on lack of evidence. We simply do not know.
But there is evidence that PNAC requested a "regime change" in Iraq. Clinton wouldn't do it, but they found their man in Bush, imo. That is why he HAD to be elected-by hook or crook.The reasons changed all the time, and frankly, bulloney. end/means.
