Everyone is talking about "health-care reform". Obama and The Hopey Changey Gang, want a "public option", that is government run health care. And we all know just how darn efficient the government runs things: public school, DMV, Ma Bell (remember when the gov't ran the telephone company? Awful), the Post Office... Ah wait, yes. The Post Office. The Post Office is such a mass of inefficiency and incompetence that it's own workers finally lose it and "go postal". So, anyway, some people are worried that private insurance will go the way of the dodo and everyone will be stuck with ObamaCare. This is what Dear Leader says:
“I mean, if you think about, if you think about it, UPS (United Parcel Service) and FedEx are doing just fine, right? No, they are,” said Obama. “It's the Post Office that's always having problems.”
Yes, that's right Mr President. The GOVERNMENT RUN POST OFFICE IS ALWAYS HAVING PROBLEMS. Isn't that basically what the eeeeevil, raaaaacist, un-American Mob have been saying all along? Shouldn't this be a huge red-flag?
Naturally, the Post Office had it's fweeings hurt.
“On behalf of 35,000 members of our association, I am writing to express our collective disappointment that you chose to use the Postal Service as a scapegoat and an example of inefficiency,” Keating wrote.
“Your negative comments on the Postal Service--without knowledge of the facts--was not only a disservice to members of our organization, but to all the postal employees,” he added.
“Employees of the Postal Service are largely represented by unions [Well there's your problem] and management associations, all of whom strongly supported your candidacy last year,” the letter said. “For our support we do not expect any special consideration. However, we would like to be treated fairly and not have our current situation misrepresented, especially by the commander-in-chief.”
