So Obama held a town hall meeting Wednesday to tout his monstrous health care overhaul — more evidence that we're entering the hard sell phase of something so unnecessary it's actually turning our president into a sweaty huckster.
But thankfully for him, he doesn't have to do it all himself — the networks are doing Obama's pitching (and catching) for free.
Look, with this sort of thing, you gotta go with your gut: When someone is trying to sell you something way too hard, the thing he's selling ain't good.
And the only thing you have to remember about health care is this: If Obama had to choose between the current system, and the system he's envisioning for all of us, he'd run screaming to the former.
You saw him in that ABC special, when asked by a neurologist what he'd do if his wife or child got seriously ill. Wouldn't Obama want the best care possible, health care bureaucracy be damned? At that point, Obama started thinking like a human, not a teleprompter, and could no longer defend his plan. Instead he said, "It's my family member, if it's my wife, if it's my children, if it's my grandmother, I always want them to get the very best care."
What, nothing about controlling costs?
In effect, what's good for Michelle and Malia is not good for the rest of us.
No wonder Obama needs to sell us this thing — even he doesn't want it!
And if you disagree with me, then you sir are worse than Hitler.
