At a townhall meeting only slightly less staged than the Broadway production of "Les Miserables," the president, in a seeming burst of Tourette's, declared that government-run health insurance would be no real threat to private companies because "Fedex and UPS are doing fine - it's the (government run) post office that's always having problems!"

So his defense of Obamacare is that it will be too riddled with problems to compete fairly with our current healthcare providers? Interesting.

Moreover, Fedex and UPS are considered superior services to the post office, and they're making money. The post office is billions in debt, and sinking fast.

Of course, Fedex and UPS have one big advantage over private insurance companies; they're not facing bills which would make it illegal for citizens to choose their services over those of the government-mandated service.

Stilt, I think The battle is ended. The Insurance Companies have won.

There will be no Public Option. New low water mark for "The One".

Obama Dips to a 47% Approval Rating

Overall, 47% of voters say they at least somewhat approve of the President's performance. That’s the lowest level of total approval yet recorded. The President’s ratings first fell below 50% just a few weeks ago on July 25. Fifty-two percent (52%) now disapprove.

BTW Arlen Specter is toast.

Philip, it ain't over till it's over (as Yogi Berra would say), but the trends are looking favorable. And the news about Arlen Specter is pleasing; he needs to be looking for a new job as soon as possible.

Hopefully Americans will learn a lesson, and apply it wisely in 2010 and especially 2012.
