Sham-WOW

If anyone bothered to listen to BO’s speech on Obamacare, it sounded more like a 20 minute commercial for one of those miracle products hawked over and over again on Tee Vee.  obamashamwow-150x100

Obama delivers an infomercial when an accounting is due.

“The Affordable Care Act is not just a website,” President Obama said at the Rose Garden today. “It’s much more.” It’s like a chamois, it’s like a towel, it’s like a sponge.

In case you haven’t heard the latest news on Obamacare, the site was tested BEFORE the launch and it failed miserably. BO, Sebelius, and the folks who run Medicare and Medicaid just plain lied….sooo, those damned R-words were right. But, in their unreasoning panic and with lack of foresight or wisdom we now have this gnormous albatross hanging around our necks…..damned if they do and damned if they don’t. YEP, you really do have to pass it before we can see what’s in it…..a 634 million dollar waste of time and money. Since Sebelius had to go arm twisting to find funds for the infomercials on Obamacare, the question arises; where is the money coming from to pay for the “tech surge” to fix this crummy mess? Does anyone believe the House is going to fund the “fixes”?

According to the latest, even Oprah wouldn’t help BO on his “roll-out”. No one disses Oprah and gets away with it.

Reportedly, the other aspect of the story involves the access Oprah was promised in return for using her persona to plug the Obama campaign. Apparently, in return for sacrificing what was left of her integrity, Oprah would be welcomed into White House briefings, be given special invitations to White House events and round tables, and had planned to give viewers on her OWN network a unique perspective on the government by taking them inside. Unfortunately, Valerie Jarratt wasn’t as interested in living up to that part of the bargain as Oprah was and Oprah has been frozen out since the Obama’s took the White House back in 2009.

White House tours are up and running again….just in time for the holiday season. Boy are we ever lucky! We get to pay for BO and MO’s fantabulous friends to attend all the White House holiday functions. Could it get any better? While they continue to cut food for the poor (mainly children) , refuse to respond to the waste and fraud in the entitlement systems, Foodorama will continue to report on the elegance of the dishes served at White House functions. November 5th is the big day, mark your calendars. Isn’t it nice the Secret Service “found” enough money, in spite of the “sequestration”, to make MO’s holidays merry and bright? Good times, good times!

Speaking of MO, she’s out touting a new campaign called “Drink Up”.  Doesn’t she know alcohol sales are up and making huge profits since BO took office?  Oh wait…she discovered water!

“Since we started the ‘Let’s Move!’ initiative, I’ve been looking for as many ways as possible to help families and kids lead healthier lives,” the first lady said in a White House statement.

“If we were going to take just one step to make ourselves and our families healthier, probably the single best thing we could do is to simply drink more water.”

Never guess who is backing this initiative….. “The push to drink more water is backed by the American Beverage Association and the International Bottled Water Association, igniting skepticism among those who favor tap water over bottled water in most instances.”  http://news.yahoo.com/michelle-obama-pushes-water-best-energy-drink-222143934.html

michelle-obama-water-201-001Now MO has finally discovered water (what would we do without that revelation), she is rampaging around the country to make her usual proclamation. Too bad she jumped to the head of the parade that was already happening. It’s a sure bet MO will take the cred for a “change” already in progress.  The irony of Michelle Obama’s water campaign

 “Water is so basic,” she explained from Watertown, Wisc., “and because it is so plentiful, sometimes we just forget about it amid all the ads we watch on television and all the messages we receive every day about what to eat and drink,” she said. “The truth is, water just gets drowned out.”

Except that’s not really true. According to Beverage Tracker (you don’t subscribe?), in 1998, soda was our No. 1 drink of choice, with Americans consuming 54 gallons of the stuff every year. Today, it’s down to 44 gallons, while water consumption has hit 58 gallons and rising.

Although on one level it may seem as if Obama is breaking the corporate grip on our drinking habits by celebrating the original no-frills beverage, it’s more like she’s pulling a Ferris Bueller: jumping in front of a parade in progress and acting as if it were for her all along. There’s nothing more mainstream than going with the flow.

what a self important ass….

Oh, and as if we haven’t seen enough of MO on Letterman or the other great comedy hits, she will be returning to every single one of her regularly scheduled shows.

Michelle Obama will appear on NBC’s “The Biggest Loser” this season, marking  her second appearance on the weight-loss reality show.

The first lady will tout her drink more water campaign in an episode that  will air in November, according to NBC. [snip]

Brita, one of the sponsors on “The Biggest Loser,” is a supporter of Obama’s  initiative.

  1. Just in case the LSM hasn’t reported on this…..get ready to be very ticked off

    The Canadian government fired the parent company of CGI Federal, the prime contractor for the problem-plagued Obamacare health exchange websites, last year for poor performance

  2. IRS paid out $132 billion in bogus tax credits over last decade….brought to you by the letters F-R-A-U-D

  3. Go ahead….no one will fact check you, BO…..

    The featured guest is, so far, the sole resident of Vice President Biden’s home state of Delaware to successfully register for Obamacare
    Another in the tableau is a Tennessee woman whose daughter is the lead lawyer for a feminist group allied with the Obama administration

    The third was among eight symbolic ‘citizen co-chairs’ for Obama’s second inauguration in January, chosen to represent gays in the military

    That group’s designated Obamacare advocate, however, was not on hand Monday to defend the program as its website has become a gut-wrenching source of embarrassment
    Rounding out the photogenic group were a pharmacist, plus small businessmen and college grads who won’t have to enroll until they turn 26

    • A comment too good not to pass on:

      I wanted to let you know that earlier today I received my “Obamacare enrollment packet” from the White House. It contained: · An aspirin and a band-aid. · An ‘Obama Hope & Change’ bumper sticker · A ‘Bush’s Fault’ yard sign · A ‘Blame Republicans first, then anybody and everybody’ poster · A ‘Tax the Rich’ banner · An application for unemployment and a free cellphone · An application for food stamps · A prayer rug · A letter assigning my debt to my grandchildren · And lastly, a coupon for a machine that blows smoke up my ass. Everything was made in “China” and all directions were in Spanish. Keep an eye out. Yours should be arriving soon

      • LOL 😀

        Next time I read the comments….that is hilarious 😀

  4. This is too funny….

    A White House national security official was fired last week after being caught as the mystery Tweeter who has been tormenting the foreign policy community with insulting comments and revealing internal Obama administration information for over two years. [snip]

    “I’m a fan of Obama, but his continuing reliance and dependence upon a vacuous cipher like Valerie Jarrett concerns me,” he once tweeted.

    “Was Huma Abedin wearing beer goggles the night she met Anthony Wiener? Almost as bad a pairing as Samantha Powers and Cass Sunstein ….,” he tweeted on another occasion, insulting a top Clinton aide, a then Congressman, and two White House senior officials in one tweet.

  5. First, all the hippy/yuppies drank bottled water, because of the Earthling sin of polluting the water, when in actuality, they saw people drinking Evian on their parent paid trip across Europe, where the water is so bad in France, wine is preferable.
    Then, we hear our bottled water bottles can be laid end to end around the globe, it’s that landfill consuming- we must buy water filters and drink from the tap. Bottled Water BAD!
    Now, Mooch feels that bottled water is peachy, and those plastic bottles? Don’t look behind the curtain.
    Which is it, hippies? you can’t have it both ways.

    • 300 tons of plastic pieces are floating in the Pacific between CA and HA. Guess where all that came from……all the storm drains dumping into the Pacific, the worst offenders….San Franciscans.

  6. Hee, hee…no comment necessary….butt, I can’t resist noticing that MO’s dress was the shortest and flounciest, kinda like a tutu…
