Obama’s masters must be very disappointed in his performance today.

The only time he does tell the truth is by accident!

What a hilarious video clip! Besides 0bozo throwing the U.S. Post Office under his bus, for their “gubmint” incompetence, it was hilarious to watch 0bozo agonizing & bumbling to get his words & thoughts out in a cohesive articulate way. Obviously he was not being coached by his TOTUS and it was readily apparent. I laughed to see him straining so diligently to not screw up. It reminded me of the video clip last fall, when when he completely botched up his example of some uninsured person going to an emergency ward, paying $10, etc, etc., hey quiet down, I can’t think, etc. What an incompetent 0bozo!!!

He put his foot in that one. Interesting that his point was that the private sector could still thrive with the public option. Of course that depends on how the rules are written. UPS isn't allowed to deliver mail by law. The rules can be written to kill the private sector immediately or changed later to kill it. He inadvertently reminded people of the the post office versus private package delivery, however. Everybody knows what works there, and that was not a comparison he should have raised. Big mistake. Not sure why lefties think this guy is gifted.

The Seinfeld episode comes to mind where Jerry delivers the mail for Newman but the plan is foiled because Jerry delivers the mail on time and to the right addresses and it becomes obvious that it was not the work of a postal employee.

Big mistake indeed! I also liked how he said people can keep their own private insurance, they don't have to worry, they won't have to stand in line.

I’d watch the video but I’m not in the mood.

I only have one question, was he answering off the cuff or reading from a teleprompter?

Did I forget to tell you guys. I finally hijacked his teleprompter. Anything else you’d like me to type in there for him to say?

"If you think about it, UPS and FEDEX are doing fine. It's the Post Office that's always having problems."

My mouth hit the floor when I first heard a clip of that on Rush’s show this afternoon. I can’t believe he used the Government Run post office as a selling point for Government Run health care!!! What a MORON!! If anything, he just proved the point against health care reform and the public option!! OMG!

He and his minions will kvetch and moan about being taken out of context but the pure and simple fact is that there’s no context possible that alters the undeniable truth of his post office example. None in his favor, that is.

LOL. Or that film Sam and the Cheers boys made for Woody that shows Cliff Clavin delivering the mail in an apartment building. As Cliff heads out the front door uttering his blather about the good ole USPS, all of the tenants come out into the hall and exchange the misdelivered mail. Priceless.

Cliff Clavin, poster boy for Obamacare.
