Is Barack Obama even dimly aware that his own signature policy is hurting millions of people?

Going on the evidence, the answer may be no, even though he had to toss up that new lie defending it Monday night.

Speaking in Dallas yesterday, the president said the following about Obamacare.

Now, this is like having a really good product in the store and the cash registers don’t work and there aren’t enough parking spots and nobody can get through the door. And so we are working overtime to get this fixed. And the website is already better than it was at the beginning of October. And by the end of this month, we are anticipating it will be working the way it is supposed to. Alright? Folks are working 24/7 to make sure that happens.

Video at the link, which captured this lovely “AFFORDABLE HEALTH CARE” sign in the background. Look at that grassroots support — they’re making their own signs!

What a joke. When is this guy going to stop campaigning and actually do something useful with himself? You already have the job, ya know. No need to keep on applying for it.

Reality: Millions of Americans are having their plans canceled, and presented with new plans that cover less and cost more, because of Obamacare. Millions. All over the country, in blue states and red states alike.

The fact that Healthcare.gov — the cash register in Obama’s tortured analogy — isn’t working is actually helping him avoid even more massive sticker shock for a while.

Where’s this “great product” again?

To complete the analogy someone would have to come in and force you to buy the milk at gunpoint, then tell you what an idiot you are for preferring the fresh stuff.

Actually it's more like having a case of milk on the shelf, all past the expiration date...I 'd really like to buy some milk, but what I can see and smell tells me it would not be very good for me

he must have been looking in the mirror cause we got a real bad deal. the s.o.b. we got stuck with won't work and doesn't want anybody else to work.

of course, if there is a really big white pile of drugs handy ...

speaking of, I saw a video today where a hawaiian high school mate of the foreign student barry explained dear liar's healthy drug habit and his willingness to do anything to satisfy it, like going out w/ elderly white guys to get $$. it was very informative and telling about the 'character' of our first illegal president. some commented on her courage for coming forward now. think Drudge had a link. to me his actions were best characterized as selfish, rude and obnoxious. about like how he is now. if you run across it, well worth your time. she seemed very credible as i'm sure the character smearing of her will be non-stop. she is a brave lady.

No, it is not at all like that example. People do not mind waiting in line for a great product. We will wait all night for concert tickets, or the latest iPhone, or whatever. It can even be kind of fun. Same thing with a great store with a great new product. There is a crush of people all excited about the new product. They are happy and smiling and chatting with one another.

They wait in line, knowing they are going to get something great, when they finally get to the cash register. If the register is not working, they know the clerk will take their money and give them their goods, anyway, even though he has to write down every transaction. Maybe he even has to use a manual charge slip, too.

Still, we understand that stuff happens, and we will put up with it for a great product. The clerk will work his hind end off, and apologize profusely for all the problems, and he is the one suffering the most. It's the concern for you and the apologies which make it bearable.

However, these Obama louts never apologize, do they? They demonstrate no concern, whatsoever.

No, this is like going to the DMV. You gotta have your license renewed, because you cannot drive around without one. You get there, and the place is not open, when it should be. There is a huge line of unhappy people. After an almost all day wait, assuming you are one of the few people who are willing to wait all day, you get in, and nothing works. There is endless paperwork, and they cannot get your old pic, nor take a new one. The clerk is illiterate (and surly), so enters your info all wrong, then tells you, that you have to come back again. If you do get your license, it is twice what you paid last time, and is only good in certain areas.

Oh, and the head of the DMV office tells you that you are just too ignorant to know how good you have it, now, and how bad it used to be.
