Clueless in Portsmouth

Without hint of irony or comprehension of what he had just said, Barrack Obama disputed the claim by opponents that a government-run public health insurance program would drive private insurers out of business by telling a friendly crowd in Portsmouth, NH today that as long as the private sector has a good product with which they can compete, then there's no problem. Near the end of the Town Hall meeting, webcast by ABC, Obama said to a self-proclaimed skeptic,

"They do it all the time. UPS and FedEx are doing just fine. ... It's the Post Office that's always having problems."
And we would then want to trust our health and the health care system to that same government because...?

Democrats, including Obama, have openly proclaimed that their long term goal is to destroy private health insurance.

Lying about that makes Obama look like... well: A LIAR!

How stupid does he think we are?

He thinks we are plenty stupid. He hasn't figured out that we actually learned a bunch of stuff while in state-run, liberal schools. Mostly learned outside of school, but it was while we were of school age.
