In the Townhall meeting, the President...
1. was dishonest about his views on single-payer.
2. botched his analogy with the post-office and private couriers. (Watch this carefully; he is really struggling to grab on to some conceptual life-raft on which to float).
3. inaccurately claimed that AARP supports his plan.
As I watched I really felt sorry for him. It reminded me of one of those cringe-inducing thesis defenses where you know, and everyone one in the room knows, that the student undergoing the examination is really struggling to defend what he does not deeply know. And you sit watching in embarrassing agony wishing he would find some way to extricate himself from the abyss in which he plummets. Very painful.
