Another self-debunking by Obama

In a previous post, I reported how Obama debunked himself by admitting that Medicare, to which Obamacare is often compared, is in fact "socialized" and "government-run" medical care.

A short time later, I watched Obama's town hall meeting in Portsmouth, NH, where he debunked himself again. In response to a question about whether private insurance companies would be able to compete against the stacked deck of government-run health care, Obama replied: ""UPS and FedEx are doing just fine. It's the Post Office that's always having problems."

That's the whole point. It's the government-run stuff that is always having problems. So maybe, just maybe, that's a clue that putting the government in control of 17% of the economy isn't such a good idea.
