Remember the ones about keeping your own doctor and troops out of Iraq?

Year eight, and credibility is a huge problem for the "hope and change" man!

We are sending more troops to Iraq, but don't call them combat troops.  Like LBJ in 1964, the Obama administration, and Clinton campaign, want you to understand that having U.S. troops in a war zone does not mean that anyone will shoot at them.  I guess they will all neatly line up behind others and just watch the firefight, sort of like an Obama war videogame.  I just hope that the Obama fanatics read their history about Vietnam.

The irony is that we now have 5,000 troops in Iraq on the 7th anniversary of our withdrawal from Iraq.  As the aforementioned article explains, the White House claims that this is all consistent with Obama's policy!  In other words, I guess that meant to withdraw the troops, gloat about it in 2012, and then put them back at the end of his second term.   

Over at the Obamacare office, the so-called "signature legislation" is in trouble.  It is now apparent to anyone that the program will have to be dismantled unless the next president wants to call for a huge tax increase.  Forget "single payer."  It happens only when Democrats are speaking to their partisans!

In fact, the Affordable Care Act is affordable only for those who are not paying for it.  The ACA is also making it more difficult for people to afford it, as we see from Dan Springer:

When Health Republic Insurance of New Jersey announced recently that it’s $46 million in debt and shutting down, it became the 17th failed ObamaCare co-op since the Affordable Care Act launched three years ago.

Those failures -- just six of the original 23 co-ops remain -- have left hundreds of thousands of people scrambling for coverage. 

Meanwhile, insurers claiming big losses are leaving some state exchanges -- including Indiana University Health Plans, whose exit is expected to result in 27,000 Indiana residents losing ObamaCare plans in 2017. And companies still operating in the federal and state exchanges are raising premiums for next year. 

Together, the developments are posing new challenges for Americans seeking affordable coverage, and show the highly touted overhaul of the country’s health care system is in some cases not yielding the savings President Obama once promised.

Like pulling troops out of Iraq, the $875-billion stimulus that did not stimulate, and now Obamacare being everything but affordable.

I have one question: where would President Obama's approval be if we had an honest media willing to get out of the tank, dry up, and put on their journalist uniforms?
