"It profits me but little that a vigilant authority always protects the tranquillity of my pleasures and constantly averts all dangers from my path, without my care or concern, if this same authority is the absolute master of my liberty and my life."

--Alexis de Tocqueville, Democracy in America

Golf 151, Sibelius 0

President Obama has played golf 151 times since he became President.

But he met with Kathleen Sibelius, the Secretary of Health and Human Services, the agency tasked with implementing his most important "achievement" as President, the Affordable Care Act, aka Obamacare... apparently never!

Amid the Obama administration’s endless rounds of finger-pointing and blame-shifting, scant if any attention has been paid to the amount of time and executive leadership the president personally devoted to implementing his signature legislative achievement. 
“Nothing frustrates me more than when people aren’t doing their jobs,” Obama has said. So, with so much riding on the line, one would assume he held weekly, if not daily, one-on-one meetings with his Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius to isolate problems, challenge assumptions, apply executive pressure where needed and successfully manage a project of scale. 
That did not happen, at least not according to Obama’s own official White House calendar. 
A new Government Accountability Institute (GAI) analysis finds that from July 12, 2010, to Nov. 30, 2013, the president’s public schedule records zero one-on-one meetings between Obama and Sebelius.

Can someone start talking about impeaching this jerk for gross dereliction of duty?
