Obama to America: ‘Bleep You’

Let's be clear about the intentions behind recent administration actions.

It has become increasingly clear since President Barack Obama’s reelection that he and his administration intend to govern as they wish, pushing as far and as fast as they can against constitutional and other legal limits which have constrained previous administrations. It has also become more than obvious that it is willing to hurt those who might get in their way, and to exploit others whose help they can co-opt to accomplish their agenda. In essence, Obama and his administration are telling America’s institutions, its states, its legal framework, and Americans in general: “Bleep you.”

What follows is but a small sample of “Bleep You” actions from this president and his administration, all of them garnering notice in just the past few weeks.

1. Headline from California Healthline (HT Doug Ross): “Budget Cuts To Hamper HHS OIG’s Ability To Curb Health Care Fraud”

The story: Just as Obamacare enrollment is set to kick into high gear, “HHS Office of Inspector General officials say the agency will be significantly restricted in its ability to monitor and address Medicare and Medicaid fraud and abuse within the nation’s health care system in the coming years.” Among the tasks the IGs will not undertake: “An audit of computer systems security for the ACA insurance exchanges.”

Better headline: “Obama, HHS, and Kathleen Sebelius to Americans Interested in Protecting Their Privacy and Identities: Bleep You.”

2. Headline from Wall Street Journal editorial: “Obama’s New York Model; How the State Destroyed Its (Individual) Insurance Market Using Obamacare Rules.”

The story: Obamacare’s model for individual private insurance to be applied to the entire nation will only be a bit less extreme than the version which was implemented in New York two decades ago. Its key to failure is limiting premium differentials for demonstrated underwriting risks. In New York, that approach shrank the pool of those purchasing individual policies from 1.2 million in 1992 to 128,000 in 2001 as premiums skyrocketed beyond reason.

Better headline: ”Obama, HHS, and Sebelius to Those Seeking Affordable Individual Health Insurance Coverage: Bleep You.”

3. Headline from NPR on July 18: “Part-Time Workers Say Schedules Are Getting More Erratic.”

The story:

For many workers, hours are not only short, but increasingly erratic as managers scramble to cover shifts without the steadying influence of experienced full-time employees.

The change reflects business owners’ reluctance to hire full-time workers while they still have so many worries about the strength of the recovery and the cost of the Affordable Care Act …

Despite repeated denials by administration officials and economists who should and in many cases do know better, the looming Obamacare train wreck has caused many employers who would have returned to hiring full-timers in a decently recovering economy not to do so.

Better headline: ”Obama, HHS, and Sebelius to Part-Time Workers Looking for Predictable Schedules and Hours: Bleep You.”

4. Headline from Forbes: ”Sorry, Mom and Dad: The Kids Aren’t Moving Out Yet.”

The story: “The latest population data show that young adults are still living with their parents — even if they have jobs.” Why? Somehow, the economist who did this write-up missed something obvious which Obama has bragged about, namely that “kids” as old as 26 “may be able to be added as a dependent under their parent’s policy” under Obamacare — as long as they stay at home. Meanwhile, because of the historically pathetic post-recession “recovery” seen in this phony economy, those who have jobs are increasingly finding them to be lower-paying, part-time, or both.

Better headline: ”Obama Administration to Twenty-somethings Who Need to Get Their Careers Going and Start Achieving Financial Independence (and Their Long-suffering Parents): Bleep you.”

5. Headline from Gateway Pundit: ”$700 Million to Promote Obamacare — (But Only) In Swing States.”

The story: Based on identified ad-buying decisions, it has become clear that the administration is less interested in attaining Obamacare sign-ups than it is in placing the equivalent of campaign ads “in battleground states with U.S. Senate races where the Democratic incumbent voted for Obamacare and is defending their vote.” Large markets with huge numbers of the uninsured like New York and Los Angeles are on track to be neglected.

Better headline: ”Obama, HHS, and Sebelius to the Uninsured in Non-Swing States: Bleep You.”

Which is exactly why the Obama administration is full-steam-ahead at every opportunity; does "overwhelm the system" ring a bell?
Boehner needs to wise up to ONE thing: the reality that Obama wants to install a massive government with himself at the helm. That means; first and foremost; that the constitution MUST be trashed (not just interpreted differently to serve their purposes), and a much bigger government with an unparalleled bureaucracy of command and control. Obama means to act unilaterally again and again and he's now using the middle class narrative "to get things done". Note to Bonehead Boner: Obama announces via the narrative du jour what his intentions are - it's the same MO since day one. Obama doesn't want or need congress; in order to rule. The time for words is over ... swift, deliberate and effective action MUST be taken to reign in the monster of usurpation of the supreme law; Obama must be held to account under that law. TODAY.

The writer is correct. It barely touches the tip of the iceberg. However, just as on Red Eye, and Fox News, the constant use of the word or sound, "bleep," for f u ck is ridiculous. For example, this blog is not being broadcast pursuant to any FCC rules, and yet this post will be stricken. And the conservative/libertarian movement wonders why it cannot get traction when it imposes the same type of censorship that was first imposed by Tipper Gore, back when I was a DJ in 1984.
It is indeed totally legitimate to get really angry about the way things are going, and to express it effectively without resorting to treating the reader like a child. For God's sake, terrible violations of the Bill of Rights are in progress, but we cannot say certain words even in PJM because someone might be offended. What made the situation what it is today is the fact that Mario Savio and Lenny Bruce broke through the wall of censorship 50 years ago to shake the brains of anyone who would listen. We cannot be a bunch of wimps today and expect to get anywhere. People are and should be really angry about the fact that our kids in their 20s cannot have kids because they cannot get steady jobs. People should be really mad that our youngsters are so disenchanted with the real, physical job of defending the country that the Air Force cannot get enough fighter pilots because the majority of youngsters have been kept glued to their phones playing games instead of wishing to take on the control of a gorgeous jet. We should be really angry that a one party state is numbing the minds of millions of Americans to the prospect of any representative governance. But no, as John Belushi said, it has to be bleeped out because someone might get the idea that we're really, really upset. Well guess what, it ain't bleep, it's F U C K you. And I guess someone in charge of reading other people's writings and censoring them will pull this comment, making my point to one, and only one individual, the censor himself.

I think Obama wants to install an administration that will function for him. He is a lazy man who wants the perks of the presidency and none of the work. He and his wife love the brouhaha that comes with his visits to foreign countries and his multiple "campaign " speeches. He loves Air Force One and the entourage that accompanies him. He does not follow the rules of the U Constitution and of shared government and hires underlings who have the same beliefs. Thus he need not really supervise them. He is in the process of raising the current lower class to middle class by encouraging young people to go to college and get higher wages while the middle class is reduced by excessive taxes and regulation to "sharecropper" status. Possibly this may be because of perceived slights by the middle class when he was growing up.
Unfortunately, the rest of the government has some misplaced fear of being accused of being racists and refuses to believe what is going on or else is too dumb or intent on reelection to act. The voting public continues to be happy in their ignorance and will continue voting for Obamites as long as they personally do not suffer.

Obamacare is based on lies, hypocrisy, and illegal activities. Here are 35 examples. http://danfromsquirrelhill.wordpress.com/2013/08/03/obamacare/

America deserves Obama. Face it, if there were elections today between Obama and any potential Republican challenger, Obama would get 65% of the vote. Why is that-bceause the American voter has been transformed by years of propaganda into a low quality voter. I find it amusing to watch people voted for policies that will convert their full time jobs into part time or nonexistent jobs. If people are so stupid, they deserve the consequences. Every day, this once great nation stumbles towards becoming the Poland of 1965

I like the "well-informed" coworkers who are all just repeating what they heard on the nightly news the day before. Do they ever bother with alternative news outlets or foreign news outlets to get more perspective? Sadly, no. Every major news service in the world has an English service. It would be amusing to watch them all cut their own throats, except my throat also gets cut from their stupidity.

Hell, I get better and more truthful news from Russia Today (RT.com) than any US news outlet including Fox.

At least I can filter the bias from RT.

All this president needs to do is remind everyone, "I won." That is he rationalizes his disregard for the constitution and even his own laws. An example: granting endless waivers to anyone/any organization that can be considered potential votes for democrats. He and his administration are well aware of the bureaucratic nightmare this law is so he's willing to exempt his 'followers' from having to deal with it. His condescending elitist attitude has become much more open since his reelection.

Obama is an anti-American, leftist, incompetent, arrogant POS, but you are a racist twit. Why don't you entertain the readers with a short essay about why Obama's racial background is at all relevant?

It is relevant in the sense that it helped fuel his politics, associations and ideology. Having watched your agreement with VodkaPundit, you need to spend less time drenching other posters/writers with anger, and more addressing the points raised.

Welcome to the fundamental transformation of the once great United States of America.
Here's a scary thought. Suppose we do keep the House and win the Senate in the 2014 midterms. What do you suppose the reaction of the current administration will be? I predict that DOJ will all of a sudden be all about voter fraud and suspend the election results pending a full investigation which might very well stretch all the way into 2016. I can only imagine what the response by we the people would be under those conditions.

Haven't you personally dissed someone in a way they simply do not recognize?
Done it in a way that illustrates just what morons and simpletons they really are?
As the above writer indicates, this is exactly what Barry is doing. Using his free hand to flip-us all off with the other.
What's funny is how many are oblivious to what is being performed, right before their eyes.
It has always made me laugh, and I can only imagine what President B.H.D.S.O. does after the sun goes down every night.
