“What the American people care about is the fact that their premiums are going up 25, 40, 60 percent, and are we going to do something about it?” he said to Fox News’ Bret Baier in 2010.
One thing’s for sure, Obama followed through on addressing his angry complaint about the system “fattening the profits of insurance companies.” Insurers are now losing money because they are being forced to provide one-size-fits-all coverage to sicker patients who are signing up for Obamacare. So they’re exiting the system. AND RAISING YOUR PREMIUMS. You can thank Obama’s hostility to their “fat profits” for your new costs.
Obama appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! last night, where he performed the show’s ritual of celebrities reading and responding to mean tweets about them. Naturally, some of the mean tweets were from Trump.
Bill’s not quite as smooth on the campaign trail as he used to be. Or at least, not as disciplined talking up someone other than himself. Or at worst, there’s a little Freudian voice in his brain that doesn’t want Hillary to be president too.
Hillary Clinton stopped taking questions aboard her plane last night once someone asked about Democratic dirty tricksters who were filmed talking about provoking violence at Trump rallies.
Notice the softball questions she was getting from the press until finally someone asked about the revelations, which were filmed by activist James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas.
One “journalist” sets her up to dump on Trump, asking a question to which the reporter already knows the answer, “Will you accept the results of the election?”

Whoever asked about the videos was brave, because it’s not easy to contradict the fawning consensus and get dirty looks from other reporters because you might be “one of them” — that is, a Republican.
Wow. Clinton’s campaign has allies playing dirty tricks. This woman truly is Nixon in a pantsuit.
A pro-Trump Super PAC is running a new ad using 2008 footage of Michelle Obama questioning the ethics of the Clintons. The ad, titled “Can’t Run Her House,” is by the Make America Number 1 Super PAC. So many ironies here. One, of course, is that Michelle Obama is out giving speeches about Donald Trump’s… Continue Reading
These students at Georgetown University, which is supposed to be a damned good school, are stumped when asked what particular accomplishment of Hillary’s leads them to want to vote for her. Oh, well, poor kids, they can be excused, because there aren’t any. Trump certainly has his warts, big ones. But the answer, in this… Continue Reading
This is hilarious. CNN keeps trying to do these outdoor panels before the debates, and each time – this is the second I’ve noticed – Trump supporters show up to overwhelm the conversation with noise. The panelists do a pretty good job of pretending nothing is going on, but it has to be disconcerting. Notice… Continue Reading
