The Obama town hall in Portsmouth is underway. The president wrapped up his remarks to the cheers of “YES WE CAN!” from the fair and balanced audience.

The crowd cheered Obama’s claims that the porkulus is working.

Obama asserted that “nearly 56 million” Americans are uninsured — ratcheting up the fuzzy math.

He praised “vigorous debate” and criticizes “wild misrepresentations,” which the stacked crowd applauded wildly.

He derided “special interests” — except for the drug companies funding ads for Obamacare, of course.

He attacked fear-mongerers, then warned of premiums rising, Medicare going bankrupt & people getting sick without his “reform.”

1:30pm Eastern.

Oh, crikey. Obama calls on a 13-year-old girl to lament the “mean signs” about health care reform. “How do kids know what’s true.”

Obama ridicules concern about death panels and rationing for the elderly.

Tried and true: When you can’t stand the heat, hide behind the kiddie human shields.

***

1:47pm Eastern. A Republican questioner asks if O still supports universal coverage push. O claims he does not support “single-payer.”

Er, read his lips: “I happen to be a proponent of single-payer…”

***

2:00pm Eastern. Obama just made a show of trying to find a questioner to challenge him. “I don’t want people saying I just have a bunch of plants in here.”

Questioner: “He winked at me.”

***

2:10pm Eastern. One real skeptic finally gets to ask question. Jokes that he turned himself into the White House snitch brigade. Asks why O won’t criticize Congress for mandating a health plan it won’t accept for itself. O spins about increased choice.

2:15pm Eastern. Curtain closes on this edition of Obama Kabuki Theater.
