It's only her greatest regret because it has the potential to derail her fantasy of being POTUS, all to protect Obama's reelection bid. She could give a rats behind about the murder of four Americans and the Muslims injured and killed as a result of violence about a stupid video trailer that had nothing to do with Benghazi. She is a filthy, disgusting shred of human excrement and doesn't deserve to be elected as dog catcher, let alone President. Sadly, she will follow in Obama's footsteps and present herself as Santa Claus and claim any opposition as misogynistic and the low information voter will be all in for her.

Some Thoughts on “Lone Survivor”

While I agree with you that the NFL doesn't even remotely approach the reality of warfare, having played around with a few NFL players I can tell you that they are scary fast and strong. I had no concept of the amount of energy a 300 pound man that runs a 4.8 forty until I saw it up close and thankfully never felt. No they are never going to approach the experience of the military, particularly elite groups like Seals, but I wouldn't discount the physicality of the NFL. They might wet themselves but as we saw with Pat Tillman many would also have the physical and mental strength to make good warriors.
All I can say is wow! If this is the best defense that can come from the Obama sycophants then our health care system is doomed. No wonder I call Obama SLOTUS --Serial Liar of the U.S. Those policies were cancelled for one reason and one reason only, they did not comply with the requirements of the misnamed ACA. This was NOT a business decision (unless of course you call compliance with a bad law as a business decision), they previously offered a product that the consumer wanted at a price the consumer wanted to pay but the government has intervened in the market and screwed it up. Great analogy I heard recently was what they are doing to the young people. They are forcing them to buy a 5 bedroom home with a 3-car garage that they don't want or need and are told that its a better deal because even though they liked their 2 bedroom condo they had to sell it.

The Gates Option

Actually the law was not passed legally. It originated in the Senate. SCOTUS declared that as presented the American people it was not constitutional and was actually a tax, not a fine or a fee. Once they did that, it set up the next legal challenge which is in the works. So your premise is wrong and who will bear the brunt of the blame is likely also wrong. Recent polls show that a clear majority of Americans oppose Obamacare and oppose an increase to the debt ceiling.
I don't think you get it. Cruz, Rand Paul and Mike Lee understand that the Senate will not allow for the defunding of Obamacare and even if they by some miracle went along, Obama would veto. This is setting the stage for 2014 and 2016 and they are betting it will benefit the GOP in those elections. Time will tell if they are right but we can see what milquetoast Republicans give us and I for one am ready to try something different. And while a majority may not agree with this tactic, Obamacare has been consistently unpopular and as more of it is implemented that unpopularity will grow. It is indeed a train wreck and has to eventually be repealed and replaced with sensible reforms. Unfortunately, like most entitlements it will be very difficult to simply repeal it. This is a long-term battle for the heart and soul of America and whether we slouch towards European-style socialism. All we need to do is look at Europe to see how badly that will turn out....the question is whether we need to hot bottom like Europe has before we turn away or whether we can do so based on their experience. Again, I am not optimistic but we have done so before and this could be a first step in that direction.
I think that is essentially correct and probably the most disturbing aspect of this entire sordid mess. The opportunity to get rid of Obamacare was in 2012 and when Obama was reelected and the Dems held the Senate the die was cast. However, like welfare reform in the 90's, there will be real opportunities to dramatically change Obamacare if the a principled GOP someday gets control of the presidency, Senate and House (i.e., not too many RINOs). Will that ever happen? Who knows, but given the current sorry state of low information voters, our abysmal tax code and decades of liberal miseducation in government schools I am not wildly optimistic.
I disagree that no one wants him in America. The self loathing left wing nuts that also hate America probably love him. And looking at his rating numbers and accounting for all his friends and family members, several of them actually watch his show.
