Those who believe fervently in Coincidence Theory--and perhaps also in the Tooth Fairy--will probably see no correlation between these delays and any political motives...

ObamaCare has guaranteed Democrats won't take the House and it could possibly cost them the Senate.
There is no guarantee Republicans will exploit the Obamacare disaster to their advantage. After giving Democrats 99% of what they wanted, more spending now for the promise of future cuts that will never materialize, House Republicans are going on vacation with the debt ceiling crisis looming. They will fall for the same old wait until the last minute then cave tactic Obama and the Democrats have used over and over again. Just once it would be nice to see them at least make an effort to avoid the same trap that snagged them over and over again.

Chicago politics. Mild stuff compared to the reagan and bush jr. administration crimes. Much ado about nothing but it keep repubs getting all patriotic and indignant so that's a hoot in itself.

Look over here!!! Don't look at Obama. Other people did the same thing, so worry about something than happened in the past and can't be changed and not what is happening right now that can be changed. Deflect and distract. Defend no matter what. The Messiah must be protected at all costs no matter how terrible his sins. This broken record is getting old and more than a little pathetic. Talk about a cult following.
