In Obama’s White House, Every Day Is Christmas!

Obama ClausCall him Obama Claus, because he promises to give us everything we want and need, for free. His medical insurance regulation legislation, for example, will cover more people, give everyone better coverage, and yet cost less. It’s like magic! He even had this to say at a recent rally in Ohio:

“You’ll be able to buy in, or a small business will be able to buy into this pool,” Obama said. “And that will lower rates, it’s estimated, by up to 14 to 20 percent over what you’re currently getting. That’s money out of pocket.

[ . . . ]

“Your employer, it’s estimated, would see premiums fall by as much as 3,000 percent,” said the president, “which means they could give you a raise.”

Premiums will fall by 3,000 percent? How is that possible? Once they fall by 100%, they are down to zero. And yet, it must be true because Obama said it. It’s like magic!

But wait, there’s another perfectly logical explanation, according to one of the elves:

A White House press spokesman later said the president misspoke; he had meant to say annual premiums would drop by $3,000.

Oh, come on. He misspoke? The man reads everything from a teleprompter. Maybe his reading is as bad as his math.

The point is that our President pulls things out of his ass on a regular basis. With him, the old quip rings true: How do you know when Barack Obama is lying? His lips are moving. More and more people are figuring that out, and the more he pushes for what the voters don’t want, the worse his approval numbers are.

The lesson here is that most people realize there is no Santa Claus. Or even Obama Claus.
