White House Message of the Day: Obama Leads By Signing Up For Obamacare Through Website
Except He Didn't "Lead;" We're At the Deadline
And Except He Didn't Sign Up Himself
And Except He Didn't Use the Website

But other than that, the White House is honest and candid as usual.

First: Why would Obama wait until the deadline, if he sought to convince people to sign up months ago, and if there's a good chance that any traffic today will crash the system?

Here's a possibility: He was actually trying to sign up earlier but only now succeeded.

Second: Just like ordinary citizens, Obama took advantage of Healthcare.gov's fast and intuitive interface to sign himself up.

Except... he had staffers do it.

You're not supposed to "get it," Gabe. The sentence is gibberish, and deliberately so. It's designed to mislead people, but is written in such a nonsensical manner that you can't quite pin down the intended meaning, and thus cannot accuse them of lying.

Which brings us to Third:

What they mean is that Obama didn't sign himself up; he had workers grinding their way through the process on his behalf. By "involved in the process," they mean they asked him which policy he wanted and he said "the cheapest," because his coverage is provided by the US Military.

And they mean that he didn't use the website, though that's supposedly "fixed" and he's telling everyone else to use it. "Signed up in person" means he utilized top HHS IT officials, entering data directly into the system, to execute this symbolic gesture.

I'm certain that his information isn't available on the black-hole-of-security-failures system. It was probably hand-deleted a moment after being entered.

So, Obama led by example by waiting until the last possible minute and then making other people clean up his mess and used special privileges to avoid the hardships he's imposing on others.
