…its the only thing.
Make no mistake – I am no Romney cheerleader. I won’t defend a lot of his comments and gaffes, especially when he makes them at key moments without thinking of the consequences. Making a bet for ten grand during a debate is flat out arrogant and dumb. Making a flippant remark regarding the constitutionality of a topic during a presidential debate is recklessly disrespectful of the document that guarantees his chance to run for office. But making a comment about firing his health insurance company is not only harmless, its downright inspiring.
I have fired, am in the process of firing, and will fire a lot of companies that take my money in exchange for goods and services. I will soon fire my cable provider for poor service. I have fired the pizza shop that delivered three hours late. I have fired a couple of people who have cut my hair. I had to fire the kid who cut my lawn and made it look like a crop circle. Some of that I’ve enjoyed, the rest just annoyed me. I have fired employees. That is not fun, and I wish that experience on no one. But being able to fire my health insurance company? I hope every American gets the choice to do that. Perfoming that type of market driven exercise in capitalism weeds out the bad and makes the good better. And firing your health insurance company is the type of experience no one will be able to enjoy with Obamacare.
Come November, with the help of a few million of my friends, I plan on firing Barack Obama. And I will enjoy that.
