Obama Gaffes, Says Health Reform Would Bring Greater Inefficiencies

Photo by jmtimages (CC)

Yesterday, I got an e-mail link to this video in which President Obama makes a verbal gaffe (or a Freudian slip?) while defending the Democrats' so-called "public-option" for health care reform:



Text: "The reforms we seek would bring greater competition, choice, savings and inefficiencies to our health care system."


It reminds me of this classic and hilarious gem from George W. Bush in 2004:



Text: "Our enemies are innovative and resourceful, and so are we. They never stop thinking about new ways to harm our country and our people, and neither do we." -Washington, D.C., Aug. 5, 2004

PS: Don't forget to check out the Humble Libertarian tomorrow for a special critique of the "public option" and some economic analysis demonstrating why it will result in long lines and rationed care. The post is scheduled to be published at 8:00 am sharp CDT.
