I suppose we shouldn’t be surprised that a man who rather famously implied that he could stop the rise of the oceans also believes that, well, look at this:
In an interview airing Sunday night on CBS’ “60 Minutes,” Obama said the health care system itself is huge and complicated and that changing it eluded previous presidents because it was so difficult.
Yes, our health care system is so huge and complicated that only he, Barack Obama, was smart enough to understand it in its enormity, grasp its many intricacies and miraculously transform it into a system that provides quality care for all at a lower cost. Or not.
Unfortunately it appears that he wasn’t smart enough to understand that “health care system” and “medical insurance” aren’t the same thing.
Off topic: It’s also rather shocking to note that the smartest President ever couldn’t gauge the size of the political backlash that hit the Democrats on Tuesday.
I made the decision to go ahead and do it, and it proved as costly politically as we expected — probably actually a little more costly than we expected, politically,” he said.
