    You literally told me republicans are opposed to the (unconstitutional) forced medicaid expansion because they are trying to destroy Obama and democrats politically. Best to keep that argument in the conspiracy forum, bud.

    No, I said they were intentionally not doing the optional medicaid expansion or setting up exchanges because they want Obamacare to fail, which in turn would hurt the Democrats politically. I don't think that qualifies as conspiracy forum fodder, since attempting to hurt the Democrats politically has been the GOP's main game since January of 2009.

    Don't call me bud. I ain't your bud.

    If they had been forced to do it, PPACA would still be the joke it is currently. Your conspiracy theory is noted, and disregarded just as fast.

    You can disregard whatever you'd like.

    Yes, your conspiracy theory. The republicans are not out to get you and Obama, democrat Kobie.

    I never once told you who I voted for. You never asked, and I probably wouldn't tell you any way since it's none of your damn business. But please, keep on with your typical devolving of the conversation down to three-word blurbs and extremely thinly veiled personal attacks. It's what you do.

    And actually, voting Democrat does not mean you are a Democrat. Being a registered Democrat means you're a Democrat. Which I'm not.

    Does that sound rational to you? Heck, does it sound professional? Isnt it possible that either Obama is simply wrong, or that people dont beleive him?

    He claims to be interested in solving problems, but rarely talks to congress or even his own appointees. He claims to be practical, but thinks govt micromanaging everyone is going to work? He thinks a lot of the things hes put into play worked better than people think. Ok, Ill give him that. Expectations are pretty low, so the fact that there was a Obamacare website at all is probably better than expected. I seem to recall Obama joking about shovel ready not being so shovel ready after all. GUess thats his idea of working better than expected?

    As Ive said many times before, if Obama would simply get to work, instead of giving interviews, campaigning, and blaming everyone but himself for the poor performance of govt, maybe something would get done. He works a half a mile from Congress. Walk down the street and say hi.

    I agree, but I would go further. He is so far left, he can't work with anyone. Plus, he wants everybody just to cave in to his demands. He acts like a 4 year old having a tantrum because he doesn't get his way.

    It is my business because it literally restricts myself, and others economically and socially.

    Is calling you a democrat for voting democrat an attack? Is this another conspiracy thing you have invented?
