As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Obama Compares Obamacare Rollout to Apple Glitch

Um, really?

President Obama today likened the floundering Obamacare rollout to a temporary glitch that occurred with the new Apple mobile operating system.

Here’s the latest illogic out of the Rose Garden.

Consider that just a couple of weeks ago, Apple rolled out a new mobile operating system.  And within days, they found a glitch, so they fixed it.

I don’t remember anybody suggesting Apple should stop selling iPhones or iPads — or threatening to shut down the company if they didn’t.  That’s not how we do things in America.  We don’t actively root for failure.  We get to work, we make things happen, we make them better, we keep going.

I think the inanity of this is both deep and wide and mostly speaks for itself. But just to illustrate – did Apple announce that it won’t be selling iPhones to employers for a year? Is the iPhone going to arguably destroy the practice of medicine in the United States?

Uhh boy. I realize intelligent thinking is a nonessential service with respect to the federal government, but does it have to be completely barred from the premises just because there’s a shutdown?

Here’s the horrifying event as it occurred.

  1. and yet there will STILL be people who are chuckling over how clever Obama was to make this comparison.

    enough low-information voters makes a low-information country. that’s where we’re headed, people.

  2. Also, how about those 150 languages in which one can get answers…Bam even gave the phone number.
    Ole Bob Beckel was so sure he could list 150 and was stalled at around twenty near the end of The Five….one of the ones he listed was Irish….LOL

  3. How could he compare health care to an Apple I-phone? This man is by far the worst, most ignorant person to have had the LUCK because he’s black, to be President. Obama lives and breathes to destroy the Republican party, he does not lead and he does not care what Americans feel or think about anything, and he does not govern! He is a man/child who has a need to destroy people, not only the Republicans but anyone who knows how stupid he is.Good luck to any young people signing up for the ACA online, so that the whole world will know all your personal business from the Internet. You have to be crazy to sign up for anything on line and divulge your whole history and personal life. Don’t do it!

  4. Are people forced to buy iPhones?

    Is the government supposed to MAKE money? practice capitalism?

    Is Obamacare on IMPROVEMENT on the current “product”? An UPGRADE from current health care insurance sales?

    Did or did not the government have THREE years to get the insurance exchanges ready?

    Don’t people criticize Apple for manufacturing in China? Why aren’t they criticizing Obamacare for being run by a CANADIAN company?

    Are people KILLING themselves in Canada because they’re so pressured by the stress of the job?

    Oh, wait.
