    Now 7 million is a win, plus a few more who got to go on their parents' policies, and then there are all the ones who signed for the big entitlement programs like Medicaid and SCHIP.

    But the Obama fans are hoohooing like crazy.

    Oh dear, I forgot about that time he climbed into the cave and personally put his hands around Osama's throat. My bad.

    I also forgot to mention some of his other successes, like closing Gitmo, and keeping his party in control of Congress in 2010.

    Speak for yourself

    Now 7 million is a win,
    It's more than 17 million


    plus a few more who got to go on their parents' policies,
    Yeah, 2.5 to 3.1 million = "just a few"

    and then there are all the ones who signed for the big entitlement programs like Medicaid and SCHIP
    Isn't that great?

    So, if a new program doesn't solve ALL the problems of the uninsured in the first year of operations, it's a failure?

    No. It's also not a win.

    Yes, and there was that Nobel Peace Prize...pre-excessive-drone striking, of course.

    Does wire-tapping the AP in the House of Representatives count as successful?
