David Gergen: Report on
Obamacare Prep Shows ´No
One in Charge´ of White House

Breitbart´s Big Government, by Tony Lee

Original Article

Posted By:mitzi, 12/8/2013 4:01:03 PM

A veteran Washington adviser who has worked for four Presidents on both sides of the political aisle said that the stunning Government Accountability Report report that found President Barack Obama has not had a one-on-one meeting with Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius since the passage of Obamacare over three years ago is an indictment of the entire White House operation and shows that the Obama administration has bordered on "malfeasance." "I have no doubt the White House is right, that Secretary Sebelius was in several group meetings with the president about health care," Gergen caveated, "but the whole

Obama conceded as much the other night "Well, first of all, I think it´s important to distinguish between this particular project -- this health care project, where it is obvious that we needed additional controls in place..., but he also said he has a "strong chief of staff," but he holds every Cabinet member accountable -- "and I want to have strong interactions with them directly."

Obama has had five chiefs of staff - in five years.

When liberals are in charge, no one is in charge. Empty rhetoric is never an implementation plan.

And where was David Rodham Gergen for the last five years, when "no one (was) in charge" of the White House?

You´d think a wise guy like David Rodham Gergen would have noticed something like that before now...

Oops. Silly me. Otherwise that would be admitting that dumb Tea Party types like us have gotten things right all along.

It´s obvious that Obama is just a figurehead, not a manager at all. Chosen because he is a pliable, smooth-talking, minority.

Recently, Peggy Noonan, wrote an article in her WSJ blog entitled, "Low Information Leadership". She wrote about an "administration full of young people who´ve seen the movie but not read the book".

Unfortunately, the movie they´ve seen may have been written by someone who did not read the book either; it only has a beginning ("once upon a time") and an ending ("the end").

The movie has no middle, and a very bad ending - just like the Unaffordable **** Act.

Entertaining, but look, it´s just Gergen. The Brits had a good term for his kind three hundred years ago: a trimmer. Someone who keeps crossing the line between the two sides by trimming his sails to the wind. No one has cared what Gergen thinks for years, but it´s pleasant to think that such rats are abandoning the Obama ship.

DAVEY BOY! You finally noticed! You must not check Lucianne.com very often. Everybody there´s afraid to take charge of anything lest Burrocky fire them for racism. Burrocky hiz own self´s not afraid to take charge - he just don´t know how.

He does know how to talk. Well, read. He can do that.

But I´m sure you were among those who sneered when Al Haig said he was in charge at the White House.

Just another example of why every normal American should feel insulted by having such a low-life infesting our White House. The guy is a lazy good-for-nothing slimeball who should be in jail for what he has done and is doing to our country. The thought of him inhabiting our White House is disgusting. I heard he has a picture of Malcolm X hanging in the White House and the reason he doesn´t allow White House tours anymore is because he considers it HIS own house? He probably has plans to never leave the people´s house, if you get what I mean?

Once again, the Obama pattern emerges:

... "perhaps the insular White House team wanted to distance the president from the bureaucratic process in the hopes of granting him a halo of deniability if the launch failed."

It´s all about making Obama look good and furthering the socialist agenda. It doesn´t matter if everything he tried failed so long as someone else gets blamed.

There is not a single negligible or illegal act Obama has committed that has stuck to him. He always has culpable deniability.

Until now. History, if not immediate reporting, is going to reveal him as a charlatan who is merely a figurehead for the 60´s radicals who really run this government.

That Congressional Democrats have gone along with it this long is criminal.

Muttering, neutered, David Gergen, actually slipped in this phrase, in between his ramblings, "there are many good things about him". Haven´t seen the straddling middle of the corrupt road Gergen in a long time. He is another humorless wart on the already sick old media censoring racket list. Gergen is the lesser of the Diane Sawyer Steve Pelley evils

A big problem conservatives have is that we have to live in this incredible mess that Obama, the regime, the left and the msm have created. We have to watch our glorious country being disintegrated from every angle and there seems to be no way to even slow it down. We worry about future generations. We need leaders.

The McKinsey review last spring said the same thing: no one is in charge. Possibilities: Fauxbama wants to keep Sebelius dangling, as a potential skapegoat; Fauxbama wanted to lowkey everything so that the public wouldn´t know the horrible things that are in the bill; Fauxbama is an incompetent president who would rather play golf; all of the above.

What´s signifcant about thes commens from David (The Big Sexy Hunk) Gergen is - - - -

David never, ever says anything which he hasn´t heard said by dozens of other DC pundits. He has never, ever had an original thought. Everything he has ever said reflects the Conventional Wisdom of that particular moment.

So if Hunky Dave says it - - it´s because that´s what everyone else in DC is saying.

The more articles like this one that I read, I sit and wonder where this country will be in ten years. It seems as if a majority of it´s citizens don´t have a clue of what is happening in DC and/or don´t really care. As long as they have their toys to play with and TV´s to watch and who´s the next idol, etc., politics has no meaning to them. And the future is somewhere beyond their beliefs. And this type of thinking extends to the 40´s and 50´s crowds as they grew up in the 60´s and 70´s. It seems we are slowly losing those that really care of what this country was and was intended to be.

What is so obvious about this administration to us, has to be obvious to everyone. The real mystery is why so many on the Left have chosen this man´s agenda to sink America under the waves rather than do what is best for all.
Without their compliance, this agenda would never have worked. So to suddenly "see" problems is highly unlikely. Wanting to distance themselves from it all is likely.

How very interesting #11 ---Obama has a picture of Malcom X hanging in the WH.
Interesting because the Mossad published look alike pictures of Obe side by side with X 4 days before the 2008 election.
The photos were nearly impossible to choose which was Barack.They claimed X was his real father not Obama. That would explain the hidden birth certificate and the fact that Obe was born a citizen plus the black adoration.
last year details of the Barry Sabazz Malcom´s supposed nonlegal son´s car crash at age 22. The crash recorded his death from a head injury identical to Barry Obama´s at the same age.

and holding those president things to a minimum. Last but not least is having his toy
AF1 ready at all times.
That done no more should be expected of him.

According to the Contra Costa Times, a new California state law that was written to protect students from teachers’ sexual misconduct had a brief loophole that allowed a teacher who was fired for alleged child sex abuse to be hired at another school. Ron Guinto, 32, had been held last autumn on multiple charges: kidnapping, forcible lewd acts on a child, sending lewd images to a minor over the Internet, forcible oral copulation on a minor and forcible sodomy on a child while he was working at Making Waves Academy in Richmond.

The people at Mozilla may yet live to regret their decision in cooperating with the forcing out of Brendan Eich. Apparently the internet giant has been getting a lot of negative reaction to its jettisoning of Eich for his contribution in support of California’s Proposition 8 back in 2008. Whether or not this will actually end up hurting Mozilla, one wonders whether Mozilla even anticipated the possibility. The folks at Mozilla travel in a world in which PC thought dominates, and if you don’t believe me, take Nate Silver’s word for it (and after the 2012 election, I’m inclined to

On Thursday, Brendan Eich, who has helped develop some of the web’s most important technologies, resigned under pressure as chief executive of Mozilla, the maker of the popular Firefox web browser, just two weeks after taking the job.

Four of those cases have been of gay men, and three of those four have died, officials reported Thursday. North Hollywood and West Hollywood were identified in the Times report as the areas where the sickened men socialized.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House.

He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s

Prominent Washington correspondents are accusing President Obama and his aides of knowingly stretching the truth on issues like the so-called women´s pay gap just to create controversy and keep issues -- and the president -- relevant. Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus kicked off the attack last week when she blasted as “demagoguery” the administration´s tactics during the pay gap debate. “The level of hyperbole -- actually, of demagoguery -- that Democrats have engaged in here is revolting,” she wrote. CBS White House Correspondent Major Garrett then weighed in this week in his National Journal

The Clintons had a busy night of celebrations after Chelsea announced she and husband Marc Mezvinsky are expecting a baby. Bill joined “House of Cards” star Kevin Spacey at the Revlon Rainforest Fund Benefit Concert at Carnegie Hall Thursday, joking of Spacey’s Machiavellian character, “When I was president people accused me of murder all the time, made a show of investigating. Spacey’s president for 15 minutes and he gets away with murder.” Spacey, who sang during the event with Sting, Stephen Stills and James Taylor, also showed off his Johnny Carson impression, taking a swipe at the coverage of Flight

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid on Friday stood by his statement regarding embattled Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, saying on KSNV’s What’s Your Point?, “If anyone thinks by any figment of their imagination that what happened up there last week was just people rallying to somebody that was oppressed, 600 people came in armed. They had practiced. They had maneuvered.” Reid continued, “They knew what they were doing. They set up snipers in strategic locations with sniper rifles. They had assault weapons. They had automatic weapons. And they boasted about the fact that they put women and children, in fact one

If the Rev. John DeBonville could preach a sermon to lift the souls of churchgoers across America, his message would be simple: Stop dressing so tacky for church. DeBonville has heard about the “come as you are” approach to dressing down for Sunday service, but he says the Sabbath is getting too sloppy. When he scans the pews of churches, DeBonville sees rows of people dressed in their Sunday worst. They saunter into church in baggy shorts, flip-flop sandals, tennis shoes and grubby T-shirts. Some even slide into the pews carrying coffee in plastic foam containers as if they’re going to Starbucks. “It’s like
