Subject: RE: BS: Should Obama Run in '12???
Aww, hell...it's all just marketing bla-bla anyway, Bobert. They all say whatever they think will help create a fuzzy general impression in the minds of Joe Public, that's all. Sarah was delivering a sound bite to the media to do that, and nothing more. She is probably well aware that she can't just wave a magic wand and make Obamacare disappear the day after she gets (hypothetically) elected. It would have to be done through Congress, and it would be a lengthy and tortuous process, and I'm sure she knows that.

They say these things just so a bunch of their most fervent supporters will cheer loudly and jump up and down and the media will lap it up. It's nothing more than that.

I bet what they would do if Sarah got elected was tweak Obamacare a little here and there to make it even MORE profitable for the private health insurers than it already is...and even LESS helpful to the general public than it already is....give it a new name...and then they'd say that they'd "repealed Obamacare"!

And it wouldn't really be a repeal at all...it would just be putting a new coat of paint and a red dress on an already very ugly statue of a corporate pig. (I'm referring to Obamacare itself when I say that...not to Sarah Palin.)
