    First of all, this person has no idea whether ObamneyCare is working on a program wide basis. So calling what she said "truth" is about as subjective as it gets. Let's be honest, she's one step above a telemarketer - so her insight as to whether the program is working is personal and not based on any information she has gathered by examining results from other operators.

    Second, even if she is telling the truth, she's not an authorized spokesperson for the program. So she had absolutely no business discussing it from a professional standpoint.

    Third, even if she had been a spokesperson, she still wouldn't have been authorized to give an interview that would put the program in a negative light.

    Once you get past the knee-jerk reactions and your clearly partisan understanding of the events, I hope you can examine this from a professional standpoint. It would help you a lot.

    Anyway, I'm done here. No need to actually derail the thread. Carry on.
    DiAnna, you're wasting your breath. I'd rather be a "lefty" than somebody who hides their political lean on a forum. It's about as intellectually dishonest as it gets for some posters to pretend they're something else.

    No, but rather the reinforcement they received on the left.



    This kind of stuff, for example.

    Newsweek Editor: Obama Sort Of God
    Chris Matthews: I Will Help Obama, My Leg Still Tingles
    Listen to Stevie Wonder lead the crowd in a religious-style chant of Barack Obama's name
    I Pledge Allegiance to Barack Obama ad campaign
    Let's talk about change while singing and chanting O-Ba-Ma

    The absolute hagiography that accompanied the 2008 campaign was as creepy as it was repellant and disturbing.

    Had you bothered to actually listen to what she said, she didn't offer an opinion on the plan. Hannity asked her if people liked the process and she said "not really." Now I suggest you professionally find a sound clip and listen to what she said.

    Re: Obamacare Operator Fired After Taking Call From Hannity; Hannity To Give Her A Ye

    I reserve judgment on her termination. What would be relevant were her responsibilities and authority when hired and the training she received as it related to her employer's expectations. Typically, though, an operator directs calls to appropriate people or departments. Hence, a call such as Sean Hannity's would have been directed to the PR or media relations contact or department. If she were not made aware of her responsibilities and reasonably could not have known how to handle the call, something short of dismissal e.g., a warning or probation might have been appropriate. If, however, she had been made aware of her specific responsibilities and should reasonably have known to direct the call to the PR or Media Relations person/department, then dismissal would have been reasonable.

    In any case, it's good to learn that Sean Hannity provided her a year's salary and helped arrange job opportunities for her.

    He is right. Some years ago human resources pulled me into the office over a vague facebook post. At that time my facebook was open to see but some of my not so friendly coworkers who weren't my friends, read a post of mine in which they thought I was talking about a patient that came in shot. Mind you hospitals have a strict code on patient privacy. Long story short my post was too vague to determine if I violated HIPAA. if I did mention the patient, condition or name I would be suspended and fired. That is the same with openly stating my displeasure for my job. Most likely I would either get written up or fired regardless if it's the truth. Most companies don't want their associates bad.mouthing them.

    The questions she answered were directly related to her position.
    Second, even if she is telling the truth, she's not an authorized spokesperson for the program. So she had absolutely no business discussing it from a professional standpoint.
    All she did was answer the questions honestly and to the best of her ability.
    Third, even if she had been a spokesperson, she still wouldn't have been authorized to give an interview that would put the program in a negative light.
    What was there to hide? Everyone unless you live in a cave already knew of the ridiculous mess.

    You know maybe you should get over yours. You have a problem that the woman wasn't going to lie and prop up a dead horse and made your political party look incompetent.
    And the biggest pill to swallow is the leftists' arch enemy Hannity, broke the story.

    Well honesty does pay, looks like Hannity is paying her wages for a year and has lined up some job interviews for her. Sweet!

    Well, the sarcasm had escaped you...

    I was talking about the imagery used... And while he was campaigning he referred to himself as superman (and if his was intended not so much as superman that we all know and love, but rather the nietzschian superman, then that analogy holds a drastically different implication)

    But of course you spend, what was it, 20 million campaigning... And you think that these types of images are "coincidence"??

    If that's the case, I should let you in on this little investment... It's a deal I got with the Nigerian prince... If you split the investment of 5000 with me, I will share the 20million the prince has promised me....
