Obama riffs on Obamacare

If you missed the president's appearance on The Colbert Report earlier this week,  it's worth watching the video.  With so many other people taking shots at Obamacare,  why not give President Obama a crack at it?

The set-up is that Obama is exercising his power to take over Stephen Colbert's  "The Word" segment.  "There are things that people of both parties actually like about Obamacare,"  Obama says,  ostensibly reading Colbert's lines,  as the written commentary adds "Everything but the 'Obama.'  "

As usual,  the side notes make the jokes,  but the president has a pretty good delivery  (I could swear he even nailed some of Colbert's mannerisms and expressions).
