    Obama it's the post office that's always having problems.

    Breitbart.tv Obama: ‘It’s the Post Office That’s Always Having Problems’

    0:52-1:00

    "UPS and Fed are doing just fine, it's the post office that's always having problems..."

    Yeah, and you want Government run healthcare again why?
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    A good point Sir.

    However,we all know that the US post office does a more extensive service than the private ones.

    It would be a trifle to compete if it could actually choose to only do the most most profitable lines of business.

    Actually this is a good example of how a public/private mix can work best.

    And I used to be a UPS delivery driver, ... I can say we had plenty of problems too.

    And if FedEx and UPS didn't have to compete against the postal service's prices, would shipping be as cheap as it is today?

    How much do FedEx and UPS drivers spend on malpractice insurance?

    Re: Obama it's the post office that's always having problems.

    well, his packed audience of HYPER supporters (LOL!)---YES WE CAN! YES WE CAN!---laughed exuberantly at the post office line

    and so do his critics

    but for different reasons

    another incredibly dumb move by the prez

    because LITERALLY he packed that room with standing-O sycophants

    in front of all america

    america was super interested in this town hall

    i watched every minute, took extensive notes

    msnbc, cnn and cspan covered the 1:15 entire

    foxnews did the first half then dropped it

    it did turn out to be very boring

    cuz it was so choreographed

    a HUGE mistake, politically

    msnbc, the instant the speech was done:

    andrea walter---"obviously not a lot of push back," there

    the republican voice (i didn't get his name, cuz, who cares)---"drop the pretense"

    SUSAN PAGE---he's "lost control of the debate," he'd have been "better served" if asked harder questions

    he spoke for almost exactly 30 minutes

    then, took NINE questions

    the crowd eagerly reacted to EVERY applause line, they were THRILLED he was there, over-the-top EXCITED to see him

    my memories of NH are always so cold, he deadpanned

    they ATE IT UP!

    first question came from a man on obama's right hand who identified himself as a "state representative" in concord

    he asks, "medicare is a govt run operation, i know you're striving for bipartisanship, but if the republicans won't cooperate reasonably..."

    answer: i don't want govt run insurance, that's a myth, one of my favorites is the lady who says she's tired of govt trying to run everything, and KEEP YOUR HANDS OFF MY MEDICARE

    the packed gym audience of 1800 laughed HARDER THAN HE DID!

    huge mistake, politically, even msnbc saw it

    looks like he's SCARED to deal with what mccaskill, specter, dingell, cardin, sibellius had to go thru

    it was a campaign rally

    electioneering event

    and, as such, considering the time and place---condescending

    he made his stump speech, answered nothing new

    repeated the exact same stuff he's been saying all along

    he can get 2/3 of the money he needs from "savings" he's found in medicare

    and wellness/prevention

    the audience was SELECTED by tickets

    they applied thru the white house for a lotto

    and the white house PICKED

    thus, PACKED

    Portsmouth Town Hall 8-11-09

    the white house says the invites were "distributed randomly"

    "with 30% given to organizers" to distribute to their friends

    LOLOL!

    which is EXACTLY WHAT IT LOOKED LIKE

    over-the-top enthusiasm and excitement

    for the CHIN

    he's scared

    he can't answer questions

    he can't face the public

    another giant political error, picking THAT audience

    dang, they shoulda taken acting lessons

    i'm sure the drama teacher was in attendance

    2 high school employees asked questions

    an english/journalism instructor, 37 year vet, who asked about mental health care---would obama always insure that there was sufficient mental health care

    now, THERE's the question that's driving all america these days

    LOL!

    and then a critic of the pres, a paraprofessional, self described, in the field of medical, who worked at the school too

    obama WINKED at her!

    PALIN LIKE!

    the audience EXPLODED

    the parapro wasn't impressed, "you winked at me," she said

    she asked about a troubling doctors and nurses shortage, it started at college, nursing professors make less than nurses

    you want to extend coverage to 50 mil more, she continued

    he interrupted---there are currently 46 mil, 47, uhh, actually we'll only be able to reach 37 to 38, i don't wanna oversell---WINK!

    the parapro moved on---and the 500 million you say you want to cut from medicare

    i'm very concerned about our seniors, she emphasized

    your health board panel, when it gets to the white house, are you certain that our seniors will get care?

    yes, he responded, i do see savings in medicare that come from subsidies to insurance co's

    seniors, he said, i want you to hear me---it's not your subsidy we're looking at, it's the insurance co's

    now, let me address all this talk about death panels...

    they're calling em DEATHERS, now

    opposite of BIRTHERS, i guess

    except they're the same people

    third to last questioner began thus---i'm a republican and i really don't know what i'm doing here

    the uber-point (for now)---huge political blunder in that he AVOIDED having a real townhall, of course, made sure the audience was supportive

    but they OVERDID it big time

    those 1800 loved him TOO MUCH

    WAY too much

    he can't face the public

    The USPS excels at....deliverying processed dead trees with advertising crap printed on them that almost no one reads. It would be more efficient for the USPS to deliver most of it's freight straight to the town dump.
