Sham Wow Obama stages an Infomercial in the Rose Garden

Who would have thought we'd see the President of the United States, Leader of the Free World, standing in front of a bunch of shills trying to fleece a television audience by urging them to call a toll-free number to get a "great deal" because the Web site isn't working?

Update: About those shills with the Sham Wow guy:

Of the 13 people who flanked President Obama during his speech defending Obamacare in the Rose Garden Monday, just three had successfully registered for the new Obamacare exchanges.


The three people who were able to register included: Janice Baker, who introduced the president and as of last week was the only person to have successfully enrolled in health care coverage through Delaware’s state exchange; David Hall, an IT consultant who signed up for health care through the DC Health Link; and Zohre Abolfazli, who was able to register through last night and still needs to shop for her “best plan.”

Besides basking in the aura of "The One", they got a free trip to Washington D.C. and a tour of the White House so we know their price, but the original Sham Wow guy could do better than that!
