Second-term woes: Obamacare, Katrina, Iran-Contra

Washington (CNN) - When President Barack Obama took to the podium for Thursday's news conference/cum-mea culpa on the disastrous Obamacare roll out, the commander-in-chief said repairing his damaged credibility was on him and no one else.

The bloodletting was a near-acknowledgment that his presidency is at a tenuous point. The Obama administration's mismanagement of his signature legislative achievement threatens to sink the rest of his second-term agenda. With more than three years left in office, Obama teeters on the brink of lame-duckedness.

    Obamacare is to our people, Iran-contra Reagan loot, Katrina natural stuff. Shut up.

    a) One President armed murderous contra rebels to then deal with Iran..
    b) One President sat by and cold heartedly let a city drown as he watched and waved from his helicopter.
    c) One President had website launch errors in an attempt to make health care affordable to the nation...

    wow. I think I'll still go with the "c".

    Yes, because a climate change super hurricane is just like the lies the teaklans, humans(?), can create.
    I rather deal with Mother Nature than a bunch of old white men who hate everyone not them.
