I watched liberal Democrat Barack Obama on 60 Minutes last night. No doubt about it .. he's glib. He's smooth. Please note, though, that I won't say that he's articulate. In the last few weeks we've come to know that saying that a black person is "articulate" is racist.

Oh .. you didn't know that? Where you've been? Remember when Joe Biden said that Barack was "articulate?" Well this was immediately translated into Biden saying that Obama is articulate and that somehow makes him different from all other blacks who aren't. So now you have to be careful to only give a white person credit for being articulate. Stray away from this rule and you run the chance of being called a racist.

OK ... back to the socialized medicine thing. Barack ... like virtually every Democrat candidate ... is pushing the "universal health care" theme.

Know this. "Universal health care" is just sugar-coated way of saying socialized medicine. The left has become very adept of late in coming up with clever words and phrases to substitute for words and phrases to most Americans react negatively. "Liberal" has become "progressive." "Spending" is now called "investing." People might object to government spending, but who would object to some sound investments? Similarly, "socialized medicine" is now "universal health care." These people know they aren't going to get elected on the promise of socialized medicine.

Democrats know that the best and most efficient way to deliver health care services to the most people in this country is through the private sector. There has been no economic mechanism in the history of mankind that does a better job of delivering essential services and products to people quicker and more efficiently than capitalism and the free market. Democrats know this. You know this.

But there is a problem.

When the free market delivers the services it leaves politicians on the sidelines ... with little power. This is completely unacceptable.

The call for socialized medicine is not about a more efficient method of delivering medical care. It's about gaining even more power over the everyday lives of Americans. When you control someone's health care, you control them.
