Jim Miller: NFL Draft

Might Obama’s insurance promise, or lie, keep Landrieu from Senate spot?
Written by 

obama-nixonWith tens of thousands of Louisiana citizens being told they will soon be without healthcare insurance, questions are being raised such as--how in the world has this occurred and who should be blamed?  


As asked during the Watergate days of Richard Nixon--"what did they know and when did they know it"?  Surely President Obama and his administration are being blasted for this disaster caused by nsurance companies terminating policies that have been in force for months or for many, for a few years.  But,  how far and to how many directions should the fingers point?

Also, politically, how will the recent and growing controversy play out in the fall of 2014, when Louisiana voters go to cast ballots for the next US Senator?   With the healthcare.gov site, for now, a technological and public-relations mess, with sticker-shock abound, with policy-terminations multiplying--how badly will this hurt the current US Senator Democrat Mary Landrieu?  Landrieu, the only Democratic statewide official is being challenged by two republicans, Congressman Bill Cassidy and Rob Maness, a Tea Party favorite.

Perhaps even more troubling for many across the nation is whether President Obama  is  now to be believed for his over-thirty public statements that--if families like their doctors and their insurance policies, they  can keep them under the Affordable Care Act, aka, Obamacare.   Because of those statements,  many throughout  the nation are claiming Obama lied.  So, did he?

These are some of the issues Jeff Crouere and and Bayoubuzz Publisher discussed Tuesday morning on Crouere’s ringsidepolitics radio talk show.

Listen to part I of this “testy” exchange focused upon the upcoming US Senate race and the “Lie”.

catRarely, have I seen few issues that have generated as much raw heat, tension, and passion than the Confederate monuments controversy. 

Just as existed during the real civil war, where brothers battled brothers, social media is the battleground, particularly Facebook, pitting friend against friend.

On one side of the tense divide, there are those who are protecting the New Orleans civil war era monuments.  Burnt in effigy, forever, is the symbol of Mayor Mitch Landrieu for up-ending what the monument protectors consider to be the loving civil society of New Orleans.

Lately, events have turned somewhat militaristic.

Some protectors of the Confederate monuments have been staying vigilant, in person and online, even surveilling during the wee hours of the morning, waiting for the next Mayor Landrieu attack. On Sunday morning, with protections of snipers, masked workers and a dumbstruck audience, the worst of all of the monuments was cut and carried., the Liberty Monument.
