Who would be admitting what? Obamacare does zero to reduce the cost of health care and it is bankrupting the middle class in the process. So unless you mean Obama will come out and say he was wrong, then I have no idea who you are talking about.

I won't go into the healthcare thing in depth because the US healthcare system being screwed is a bigger overall problem, one that's not necessarily in Obama or any other future president's complete grasp. I do think people should have mandated healthcare, but the reality is, Obama's bill doesn't quite fix or address the problem fully and I doubt any administration can fix it overnight. A universal healthcare program is much harder to implement and to scale in the States.
Anyhow, I doubt there's a Republican contender that appeals to anyone but their base to challenge Obama, unless one really comes across as more pragmatic than the usual conservative in the primaries.
I agree that the problem is big, but it can be fixed if done correctly. What Obama did is a joke though, it doesn't even begin to touch the problem.

This I agree with. If people would quit voting for a party simply because of the party's name (like sheep) and start voting for the people that they think could/would do the best job, we would all be better off. I'm not saying voting 3rd party is the way to go all the time or anything, but voting for a Dem simply because he/she is a Dem (or voting Rep simply because he/she is a Rep) is stupid. Vote for the best person out of all of the candidates (or in some elections, the lesser of the evils).
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....
