Barack Obama (Math Genius)

"For Americans who get their insurance through the workplace. How many people are getting insurance through their jobs right now? Raise your hands. Alright. Well, a lot of those folks, your employer its estimated would see premiums fall by as much as 3000%, which means they could give you a raise."

- Statement made at an Ohio rally. The crowd went wild.

**A thinking person would imagine the crowd went wild with laughter at the sheer idiocy of this comment, but no, the crowd went wild with glee at the genius of the Math Teacher-in-Chief.

Lets play with numbers and assume an insurance premium is $500/month: A 50% premium reduction would mean the employer would pay $250/month. A 99% premium reduction would mean the employer would pay $5/month...A 3,000% premium reduction would mean the employer would pay $-15,000/month; the insurance company would pay the employer $15,000/month.

No doubt "they could give you a raise."

I don't know of anyone who wouldn't take that deal (other than the mean ol' insurance companies, of course)...Then again, you'd have to live in "Fairy Tale Land" to believe Obama's idea is possible. There is one that seems most Obama-like: Pinocchio.**

    Do you think that Bush would have gotten away with such a moronic statement? This from the man that Dana Carvey (stick to comedy Dana) said was, "Too smart to be President" on Leno the other night!! I admit I threw up a little bit in my mouth when he said that....
