Obama gaffe-machine rolls on

If George W. Bush had said this there would have been an interminable resounding of guffaws all the way from the offices of the New York Times to those of the Hindustan Times and beyond. Boor, bumpkin, oaf- would be a fraction of adjectives commonly used a million times in the media all over the world.

Barack Obama's gaffe: seeking greater inefficiencies

Would health care reform bring "greater inefficiencies" to the country's health care system?

That's exactly what Obama said Monday when he spoke about health care reform at the Childrens National Medical Center in Washington.

"The reforms we seek would bring greater competition, choice, savings and inefficiencies to our health care system," Obama said in remarks after a health care roundtable with physicians, nurses and health care providers. "And greater stability and security to America's families and businesses."

I wonder how will this be reported. On other hand this might not be a gaffe -his monster healthcare bill promises to bust the bank even more than he already has with trillions in stimulus and bailouts already down the drain. Perhaps he is seeking inefficiencies - and with great success!
