Don't hate him, laugh at him....

From the continuing adventures of the smartest president in the history of everything comes his latest defense of the ongoing website debacle...
President leads a surreal pep rally for ailing Obamacare | WashingtonExaminer.com: "Nothing about the event seemed to go smoothly. For example, Obama said anyone having trouble with the Obamacare website could call an 800 number to apply for coverage. "You can get your questions answered by real people, 24 hours a day, in 150 different languages," Obama said. But a short time later, the Washington Examiner's Philip Klein tried the system and tweeted what he learned: "Can't make this up. Got through to 800 number, followed prompts, and got referred to Healthcare.gov.""
The thing that the right has gotten wrong about Obama is that the way to fight him is not to angrily denounce him but to laugh at him. Has there ever been a president so self-righteous, humorless and condescending to his enemies? And now the team that revolutionized the use of the web in political campaigns has botched the one part of Obamacare that everyone expected they would be able to get right: the website.

The thing that is strange here is how the President seems to be able to get away with happy-talking this thing, not really explaining what went wrong or being confronted with the obvious questions like, "How could this thing be so messed up and he had no idea?"
