Because nobody reads that rag anymore?

How perfect. Time’s primary concern is what this means for the traitor’s Presidency, and as an after thought, oh yeah, what does this mean for your health care.

Late to the #fail party, eh Time?

all the beer is gone, the chicks have left, and the pretzels are eaten….

True, but the cover might have an affect sitting on the coffee table of a doctor’s office waiting room.

TIME magazine …
A bunch of teary-eyed, lip quivering, distraught high school cheerleaders in a sympathy huddle as the star football player, that they all slept with, is carried off the field on a stretcher … after completely blowing the big play.

More like he just ran into his own end zone, spiked the ball, then challenged the ruling on the field.

Gotta protect his legacy….. everything else be damned

If only someone could have foreseen and warned us…

Is there a difference between a broken promise and a lie?

shinty on November 21, 2013 at 9:34 AM

new @TIME cover: Broken Promise

“Broken Promise” should be pluralized.

Far more than one promise has been broken.

Keep your plan?
Broken Promise

Keep your doctor?
Broken Promise

Save $2,500 per year?
Broken Promise

Reduce the deficit?
Broken Promise

And all of those broken promises are completely independent of the web site fiasco.

Well, a broken clock…

shinty on November 21, 2013 at 9:34 AM

“broken promise” and “incorrect promise” are euphemisms.

It’s fairly obvious that those who repeated the incorrect/false/broken promises about Obamacare knew that those were incorrect/false/broken promises when they made them.

I.E., they were LYING because that was the only way to get the bill passed.

What It Means For This Presidency

Yeah, that’s my biggest concern.

mankai on November 21, 2013 at 9:56 AM

RuhRow!

Somebody is gonna get a nasty phone call from the Obama press team.

WestTexasBirdDog on November 21, 2013 at 10:11 AM

Heh.

It says it all that “WHAT IT MEANS FOR THIS PRESIDENCY” is on top and in a larger font than “WHAT IT MEANS FOR YOUR HEALTH CARE.”

Does TIME assume that more of the general public are concerned about the impact on the president than on the impact on their own health care?

Clueless. Absolutely clueless.

And as he was “sleeping” with each of these fawning cheerleaders, he promised them that he would still respect them in the morning.

And they all believed him.

Did not Jay Carney come over to Obama from Time magazine?

Its not a lie if the President tells it.

Meric1837 on November 21, 2013 at 9:18 AM

That’s my thinking. It will also clue in some of the libs who subscribe to Time.

I’m thinkin’ turn over on downs due to “butt fumble”.

This QB/President doesn’t know an @ss from a hole in the line….

dentarthurdent on November 21, 2013 at 2:26 PM

I think an enema bag, tubing and nozzle with some KY would have been more apropos.

“If there’s a blue pill and a red pill, and the blue pill is half the price of the red pill and works just as well, why not pay half price for the thing that’s going to make you well?” Obama asked.

Now, there’s a white pill, too?

If the media are so much smarter than the rest of us, how come they didn’t see this coming? They can’t distance themselves from it now. They sold all the lo-info voters on Obama, painted him as the return of FDR and JFK and as the smartest guy in the room. They were mesmerized by his rhetoric and angrily attacked anyone who said we couldn’t afford this, despite the ballooning deficits and the effect the plan was having on jobs. There was plenty of evidence of mendacity not to mention incompetence, but they wouldn’t listen because they were all believing progressives.

Now they’re fleeing the sinking ship like rats and proclaiming that Obamacare is a broken promise. While we’re working through the wreckage, let’s not forget that this is a major failure of the media as well..

Just had to fix this. Since when has he ever cared enough to use any lube?

manyears on November 21, 2013 at 6:39 PM

Pretty sad that the only way I’d see a Time magazine cover these days is to happen to click on a link on an internet blog.

“What it means for this presidency”

Yeah, because that’s all that matters.

Dr. ZhivBlago on November 21, 2013 at 7:02 PM

It means nothing to this committed ideologue. With Reid in the Senate, a limp GOP leader in the House, and an imperial appetite for executive power, Hugo Hussien Obama is more dangerous than ever now. He is not up for reelection. Time to pack the courts and issue executive orders which will survive legal challenges due to his allies he just appointed.

Bleed_thelizard on November 21, 2013 at 8:28 PM

I wish I could be on the obamaCare death panel for everyone at Time who helped get that evil piece of sh!t elected.

Ronnie on November 22, 2013 at 1:41 AM

…if you have lost TIME Magazine……you’re screwed!

KOOLAID2 on November 22, 2013 at 7:50 AM

You can read this magazine sitting in a Doc’s office 5 years from now when you wait for a colonoscopy that took 6 months to approve and schedule with a IRS agent watching so the Doc doesn’t cheat.
