The young president at the CBC Phoenix Awards. It was pretty much a pandering speech filled with plenty of us and against them rhetoric. At one point he offers economic hope to young African Americans by promising to sick AG Eric Holder on companies. I am not sure EEOC is the main reason behind decaying cities and 10% unemployment, but it worked Saturday night I guess.
But I saved the best for video. In typical campaign mode (and in my opinion not very presidential, although that’s subjective) he made a big campaign style push for health care reform. Yes we can.
It starts with a strange story of an encounter with a foreign leader who doesn’t understand why Americans don’t want the government intruding further into health care among other things (my guess it was the Russian judge). It’s not easy to understand if you’re not Russian, or British or, French. Actually its only easy to understand if you are American.
But the best part comes at the end as he gets caught up in his new you won’t be required to change your insurance with his old you can keep your insurance. Awkward.
