    No. It didn't cost that much.

    That number is straight-up false, but that hasn't stopped the right-wing media empire and even their elected representatives from repeating it!

    And what crap do you think the administration asked for that made the website inoperable? The ability to create accounts and set up security questions is some revolutionary new concept?

    Yet they keep repeating it, and will continue to do so, even on this thread. It's how the rightwing noise machine works.

    The funny thing is, in a couple months the website will be working fine and they'll have moved onto their next bizarre pseudo-issue. I predict it will involve pet food and a conspiracy to "feminize" America's fire departments.

    Wow, it's almost as if the Ivy League routinely churns out top-level executives who tend to obtain lucrative government contracts.

    And I still want to know how that contract was awarded. Multiple sources claim that this was a no-bid contract; HHS says this isn't so. Who's correct? Where's the RFP, and where was it published?

    Well well well, look who's listed in the same graduating class. Does anyone remember what the Left said about Cheney and Halliburton?
    Wow. Kudos to you, that's a smoking gun and no mistake.

    and if there was not affirmative action, even more so. Michelle Obama claimed her mediocre HS record (compared to the white and Asian students) was overlooked because she was a LEGACY at Princeton (her brother was a graduate)

    When her brother went to Princton two years earlier it was probably around 7% to 10% black students at Princeton. From the late 70's to mid 80's most the brilliant students chose and were accepted at Harvard, whereas Princeton was trying to shake it's anti-semitic and anti-minority reputation and preferred well rounded minorties over specialized academic students. Its true, Michelle Robinson was not a remarkable student at Princeton. She did however go on to earn a Juris Doctor (J.D.) degree from Harvard Law School in 1988. After graduting from Harvard, Michelle went on to become a successful professional in her own right. However, her real claim to national notority is largely based on her husband becoming the POTUS. Meanwhile, Michelle Obama seems to have put her own career and ambitions on hold in order to support her husband. Its an age old tale...behind most successful men is a stong woman.

    All irrelevant stuff, and you've established nothing, because they are friends in the black alumni association there.
