I thought it was Obama’s mom who was shafted by private insurance. Of course that story did not check out. So now the president has made his poor dead white grandmother the poster girl for the evils of private insurance. It would be shameful if it weren’t so transparent.
Mitt must really be the odd combination of fierce competitor and really nice guy his friends say he is. He looks cheerful and is smiling as he dishes numbers, insurance choices, and prospective policies. Obama is reduced to frowning and quibbling. How much can he defend Medicare while gutting it to make way for Obamacare?
