I blame Taft.

Newflash?  On a rumor?

She clearly just wants to spend more time with her family...
 
2014-04-10 07:52:20 PM
This is terrible, terrible news.
 
2014-04-10 07:52:48 PM
it could also set the stage for a contentious election-year confirmation hearing to replace her

Really? The current math says "No".

5 years of having her head called for by the GOP.

5 years of being trotted up to the Hill for pointless grilling sessions by Reps.

Good on her for lasting as long as she did in that worse-than-thankless task.

You know who else claimed over 7 million victims?

Some people won't make the first payment so I understand the unskewed number is eleventy potato.

The Fox News narrative is that Sibelius was "thrown under the bus".

I know I can't expect a conservative troll to be funny, but at least try to think of something interesting.  That joke is old enough to need carbon dating, like your mom and her lonely love of an inanimate carbon rod.

And the crowing on the Hill now will be: "She has something to hide! Otherwise, why would she quit?!"

I have to admit to having a complete girl crush on Sebelius. That woman is farking hot.

Also: nice way to exit ahead of a presidential campaign.  Sebelius/Davis anyone?

Evil High Priest: Have we descended into chaos yet? I was promised chaos.


I was promised camps in which death would be issued to people of elderly status. I bet I haven't heard of it because of the Liebral Media in the pocket for Taftamba.

Oooh!  That's a good one.

What does she know about Benghazi?  The American People deserve answers!

Sylvia Matthews is going to be Obama's nominee to replace her according to the New York Times.

She's a better person than I am. I would snapped a long time ago and gone to the Hill with a flamethrower, some nunchucks and a couple dozen lawn darts in tow.

Now FOX has to find a new boogeymanperson. Apparently some lady named Burwell from Obama's budget office is taking over DHSS.

I wish her luck cos she's gonna need it considering the 24/7 temper tantrum that the GOP has devolved into.

Serious Black: Sylvia Matthews is going to be Obama's nominee to replace her according to the New York Times.


Sylvia Matthews Burwell, in fact. I know nothing about her at this point but her name. Anybody got any insight there?
 
2014-04-10 08:23:13 PM
So, Obamacare hit it's last major public landmark, exceeding targets at that.

If I was the secretary of the HHS, I'd give the crowd one last "You're welcome,biatches!", drop the mic and exit stage left with a Haters Gonna Hate strut.

She's the current director of OMB. Haven't heard anything bad about her, so she can't be too controversial.

Of course, I'm guessing that the GOP is going to take this opportunity to grandstand even more about ObamaCare and make their votes contingent on halting the implementation of the entire law. That strategy seems right up their alley.
 
2014-04-10 08:27:50 PM
Great. Come back and save Kansas from the wrath of Brownback. You were actually pretty decent as a governor.

Did they mention that Boehner was driving it?

Well, yeah not yet. Give FOX five minutes here and I'm sure they'll come up with something.

I'm guessing that's a good guess.
 
2014-04-10 08:33:10 PM
I'm kind of surprised she stayed on as long as she did.  Most often, cabinet-level positions turn over right after the re-election.  I guess she stayed on to oversee the implementation of the ACA.

Oh well, good for her - she doesn't have to deal with the garbage from the House and the talk radio shills.

cabbyman: She clearly just wants to spend more time with her family...


Came here to say this.

If Paul Davis is smart, he's already called her to ask her about campaigning with him to make Medicaid a big issue in the election.

Sebelius was a good Governor, most influential HHS Secretary ever, and was really, really good as state insurance commissioner before that (where I first met her... the office had been horribly corrupt before she got in).

She's also one of the most anesthetizing public speakers of our time.  Go find her 2008 response to Bush's last State of the Union.  Dare you to make it through awake.  There's a reason Obama didn't pick her instead of Biden for VP.  She was too sleep-inducing to be a Veep candidate, let alone lead a ticket.

would have made a great debate with palin
 
2014-04-10 08:57:38 PM
Only reason she didn't "resign" earlier is that it would have fueled more criticism that Taftcare was a failure during the website roll-out.  The fact that they exceeded their enrollment expectations is evidence of this.

Smart move, IMO.

"Taftcare" ... that's so 9 days ago. Haven't we moved on to "HooCares" or "EffDeeArrCare" or "TruCare" or "I'mTotallyShaggingMarilynCare"?

I'm sticking with Taft until our next fearless leader takes over.
