    Obama says:

    * the rich need to pay a little more.
    * the rich need to pay their fair share.
    * money needs to be redistributed for fairness.

    So why is he forcibly taking our money for Hawaiian vacations?

    I hate to have to say this. Our president is delusional.

    Come on, guys. Obama is right: this CAN be a breakthrough year. Here's what has to happen for the breakthrough to occur:

    Republicans take the Senate and keep the majority in the House
    Obamacare gets repealed so we can get our country back on track
    The federal judge's decision is overturned to keep the institution of marriage sacred

    So we CAN have a breakthrough. Let's do it!

    Can anyone please HONESTLY explain to this Idaho farm boy how Obama has helped or is helping this country?
    We have never been more divided as a nation- class warfare, race, religion, etc.
    We have never been so far in debt and going deeper at a record pace.
    Unemployment is being miss calculated to make it appear it is going down by counting part time workers but not counting people who have given up.
    Our healthcare system is in chaos and will likely get worse.
    Our respect abroad has never been worse.
    We have more people on welfare than at any other time in history.
    More federal government sponsored scandals than at any time in history.
    10 minutes after we pull out of Afghanistan, Al Qaida will move in and wipe out all the progress we have made in fighting terrorism.
    The stock market has been pumped up by billions of tax payer dollars from the federal reserve which is artificial prosperity and can not continue.
    The median middle class in come continues to decline faster than at any time in our history.
    The DOMA has been destroyed.
    Inflation of food not reported is harming people.

    Does anybody really care what Obama says or thinks anymore? It is a verifiable fact that he knew he was not telling the truth about the ACA. He did this to get the bill passed and to get reelected. Neither would have had a chance in "banned word" if had not lied his head off. He simply is not trustworthy. He will say anything at any time if he thinks it will help him politically. I can't wait to get this empty suit out of office.

    There's a cycle.

    At times, a society must suffer with the loss of freedom, and be controlled by cruel corrupt leadership. This wakens people to the preciousness, and sacredness of independence.

    It appears we're headed into the loss of freedom part of the cycle, than with the shedding of blood, regain our freedoms on the other side.

    Sad we couldn't learn from history, and avoid this cycle.

    We need some honest leadership free of corruption.

    You know, this just goes to show you how protected and inside a bubble a President is kept. It's not just Obama. Other Presdents have sounded like this too. It's amazing to see that many of us know more about the real world and what is happening than the President himself does. He'll be in Hawaii while every problem that he has created or not solved during his 5 years in office is still there.

    barry giving another one of his brilliant press speeches. the thrill is gone from my leg and now it is just a pain in another part of my body. the guy just can't help himself blather on and on about nothing. omamacare is a disaster just like his presidency. america got what they deserved when they voted, twice, for a guy with no track record of doing anything but hanging community organizing posters on telephone poles.......heaven help us. only three more years, which seems like an eternity.

    "Breakthrough year?" Hold on...let me compose myself...I'm sorry....I'm laughing too hard...just a moment....there, OK.

    This year was a "break"through year. Never before has the Constitution been broken and violated so many times by this man. And today's exemption of the Obamacare mandate to those who had their insurance cancelled was yet another instance. He broke the economy. He broke the world's best health care system. He broke records as far as presidential spending on personal vacations. He broke the nation's debt in record numbers. He broke numerous sustainable energy companies in spite of funneling millions of dollars to them. He broke his promise to be the most "transparent administration." He broke the record on the number of times the president hit the golf course. Wonder how many times and in what ways 2014 will be a "breakthrough" year.

    lost in DC-
    The bag of goods that was being sold was you could purchase a health care insurer on a web site managed by the goverment and it was going to save you $2500 as well. But now I hear if your lucky enough to get insurance you may have to appear in front of a death panel to get treatment. Sounds as if you're going to have to buy it to know what's in it. Lucky for all of us Congressman Chaffetz just got some so hopefully he'll keep the rest of us mis-informed.

    Many in government and around the world have thought our President would back down and fall prey to the Ultra Conservative Republican extremist demands. Many Republican voters thought President Obama would lay down, and simply give up, crawling away in defeat.
    What a lesson for the next generation of politicians, voters, and young people worldwide!
    Stick with what you feel is right for America; if you have problems while working towards these goals, continue working on til they come to fruition; Do not be bullied by those extreme legislators and extremist groups who only want attention and glory, not what is best for the United States and our world; And, most important of all........ Never give up!
    Merry Christmas and successful 2014 to President Obama, Michele, and his lovely daughters

    you mean I can get my health care at some web site? I thought I had to go to a doctor for healthcare.

    As far as the INSURANCE web-page, the recent Target security breach will pale in comparison to the personal data disaster waiting to happen there. And just because the webpage MAY be functioning better, it does not mean BO's insurance law will work.

    How does the silica taste?

    Minions? You may be right about the "year of the sheep" which means everything I am calling out may come to pass. Lib's seem to have their house in order while the GOP and it's minions still seem to have no clue on how to lead or run a campaign.

    Obama has his head in the sand. And his minions like FT do as well.

    @FT - will 2014 be another "year of the sheep"?

    Dec. 20, 2013 1:34 p.m.

    2014 will be a "breakthrough year" only when he stops lying and starts listening to the American people. We will all be grateful when he loses his egotistical attitude that causes him to think he knows what is best for everyone else. I wonder when he will enroll in "Obamacare?"

  • FT salt lake city, UT

    A stronger economy, Amercia troops coming home, a health care website that works, and a GOP family fued may just give the lib's something positive to run on next year. Just when all the right wing radicals thought they had next year in the bag.

    A break through year? Yea right. Just like "if you like your insurance you can keep your insurance period". Maybe a break through the ice year into the frozen lake. Not a great place to be. This man has zero credibility...someone needs to tell him.
