According to the Washington Post, the president actually criticized "scare tactics" by opponents of health reform. But in the second paragraph, we find that Obama asserted that Americans are "held hostage by insurance companies." Sounds a little like a scare tactic, doesn't it? Obama's entire pitch on healthcare involves scaring the American people about the current system. His ridiculous whining about opponent scare tactics just reveals him to be a gigantic hypocrite.

When the president isn't being intellectually dishonest or hypocritical about the health care issue, he's blatantly lying or spouting doubletalk.

"I don't want government bureaucrats meddling in our health care - but the point is I don't want insurance companies' bureaucrats meddling in our health care either,
What's that supposed to mean? He wants far more government involvement, which obviously necessitates government bureaucrats "meddling," plus he's been working with insurance companies to get their support for his "reform" efforts, even while he demonizes them. 

Hypocrisy, intellectual dishonesty, scare-tactics, doubletalk, and lies -- that's President Obama on healthcare.
