Cupp: Why Dems better hope Obama's lying

(CNN) - As the fallout from the botched launch of Affordable Care Act's exchanges continues, it grows ever clearer that website glitches are only a small part of the problem with the cumbersome - and increasingly unworkable - law. One has to ask: Is President Barack Obama making this up as he goes?

It's hard to imagine that the President and the team charged with implementing Obamacare couldn't have foreseen the problems that have continually popped up. Yet, here we are, bringing in "tech surges" to examine the website problems, security experts to mitigate privacy concerns, insurance executives to "brainstorm" ways to actually insure people. And all the while the President has implied he was the last to know that storm clouds were on the immediate horizon.

There are two possible scenarios here:

    To subsume, considering all findings in this review women shouldn't have any doubts for stepping forward and buy Capsiplex or Capsiplex PLUS to win the battle against the unwanted pounds and build for them higher quality of lifestyle Herbalife diet product Force Factor, on the other hand, says to "take advantage of the bodybuilding performance of nitric oxide ( It even goes on to state the benefits of "healthy nitric oxide levels" when endeavoring to achieve "championship results," whatever that means.

    S.E. Cupp writes almost as good as she looks....and that ain't shabby! Hope the left disregards her, as she is "smarter than the average bear".

    A lie if repeated as it was by all Democrats to get elected in 2008 and 2010 is just that a lie. The Democrats Health Care Law has been defective from the start, that is why they put a rush job on the vote and alone as a party passed the bill to be on the Presidents desk so that he could finalize the lie by signing the bill into law. The liars of this law should all be fired and sent to a cell where they can just lie to each other and not the people. Those that voted for these liars are the type of people that like to be lead around by a leash like a puppy.

    An observation after reading up on "Schunpeter – the economist" recommended by "Big Kahuna": The theory presented, in part, predicts the fall of "capitalism" due to the capitalists' elimination of the middle-class, which the economy actually needs. Sounds exactly like what we are seeing today, with "greed" running rampant and actually pushing for a two-class society with "the money" constantly being aggressive to feed their insatiable "more" (never enough) appetite while the majority continually looses. I think that we can simply forget that America became great and had dynamic growth with "capitalism" that was coupled with integrity and moral values, with pride that included a conscience, where today there is really run away greed with everything measured only in dollars – however acquired, and people always just striving for more anyway they can get it. Not trying to be a purist or an idealist but just noting an educated view that has considerable correlation to what is going on today – for whatever it is worth. "Capitalism" is the way but without some "socialism", without a conscience it can be evil, while with a social conscience it can be a true "democracy" that can actually be beneficial to all of society. Just an observation that has applicability to our current politics.

    This woman is so divisive and so party over country that nothing she says is relevant. The President didn't lie, in fact as he put it, he isn't writing code for the Obamacare website. It will get fixed, but this utter hatred and disrespect of the Pres. Obama, by the likes of Cupp, is disgusting and everyone sees through her permanent smirk.

    BIG KAHUNA / REALITY CHECK: I don’t agree with your evaluation and I actually see the evil elsewhere but I do admit that I need to slow down. Don’t misconstrue as I do believe your position really leaves no room for real communication but in stopping and thinking in response to your questions, I’ve come to see that I have really become too strong in my firmness and even gotten away from the details to instead become totally fixated on the overall point – I have simply become very adamant with my disgust over what I see as the real lack of honest representation and what I observe as the arrogant self-serving intent to just con the people and manipulate public opinion. That isn’t right or good on my part, maybe understandable but just not good with all of the venom and possibly not in my blanket condemnation. Thank you for the push; I was already quietly getting upset over my preoccupation with what I see as being grossly wrong and as completely dishonest (with it even affecting my disposition) and now the “red flag” has made me stop and question the value of my strong emotion. I will now simply back off, take a breather and try to calmly reevaluate my position, at least its intensity. Sincerely, best wishes and good luck to us all to ultimately have responsible and honest political representation (regrettably, likely never perfect).

    There are only three reasons you mislead people (many times over)…

    A) You're incompetent, because you didn't know what you were saying (when you should have)

    B) You're corrupt/dishonorable, because you knew you were intentionally misleading and chose to continue doing so

    C) You're, both, A and B

    There really are no other reasons. Accidents happen once or twice, not many time... over and over and over and over, again.

    President Obama has now painted himself and the supporting Dems as, both, incompetent and corrupt/dishonorable.

      You need to seriously review facts on the ground before slandering a sitting United States President. President Obama snatched his health care plan from frmr. GOP Gov. Mitt Romney who passed RomneyCare into law in state of Mass., and 88% of residents approve it overwhelmingly. Romney got his blueprint from the Heritage Foundation – a GOP Republican think tank.

      You must search recent US political history, the GOP have never stood up for the American worker who make-up the Middle Class in America. The Republicans have voted to support workers right to safe workplace, vote against minimum wage, voted against and protection for retired workers and the less fortunate. Every year the proposed legislation to tear away at our social safety nets. The GOP voted against Social Security, voted against Medicare / Medicaid, voted against welfare and any extension of healthcare over the years. Republicans are only for their rich donors and big business, generate and protecting their tax loopholes. You better kit your knees and pray that a great man, a great US President Obama is looking after the poor, the less fortunate in our society, the GOP damn sure will not be.
