I Don't Have Much

I don’t know why anyone is surprised that Obama appeared listless and displayed a passive demeanor in the debate last night, since that is invariably the way he appears when speaking without a prepared and well rehearsed speech. He gives a hell of a campaign speech, when he is fully engaged with the audience, but when speaking extemporaneously or when explaining policy he is far too engaged within his own head.

The “fact checking” seems to be a bit slanted toward Obama, for instance on the claims about the Romney statement that Obama's health care law cuts $716 billion from Medicare which will hurt current beneficiaries. Obama supporters, and the “fact checkers,” claim that the health care law will “limit payments to health care providers and insurers as part of an effort to rein in costs over the course of the next decade,” and are not cuts to senior citizens' benefits.

Seriously? Does anyone think that providers will accept $716 billion in reduced payments without reducing the degree of services provided? What planet are they living on? Try telling a gravel supplier that you will only pay $600 for the truckload of gravel instead of the $900 that he quoted, and see how much gravel he delivers. It will be a “truckload,” but it won’t be the nine cubic yards you were expecting.

There is no such thing as a free lunch, even when it’s a Democrat who is promising it to you. "We're going to pay less and get the same services," and you believe that, why? Because it's Obama saying it to you?
