Can He Be This Stupid???

Here is a quote from Bush back in the summer. How can any educated person think that emergency rooms are an effective way to provide sound medical care to people?????

“The immediate goal is to make sure there are more people on private insurance plans. I mean, people have access to health care in America. After all, you just go to an emergency room.”

Did somebody actually write that line for him? Was it adlibbed? In fact, it was the latter; Bush’s event was kind of a town-hall style speech. He didn’t have a podium or a teleprompter, so this was the president without a net. His comments on healthcare reflected whatever thought popped into his head.
