He's bragging about web hits.

Break out the champagne, y’all! Healthcare.gov is a bona fide success:
Despite website problems, Pres Obama says http://t.co/v0y6p1MBiM visited nearly 20million times, so far.

Ooo! That totally means it’s right? Because, just as “health insurance” is the same as “health care,” “page hits” is the same as “successful enrollment.”
Obama is counting web hits and letters written to him as successful enrollments.

Ridiculous. Also ridiculous? The idea that 20 million site hits is remarkable:
So has Drudge. TODAY. MT President Obama: "So far, has been visited nearly 20 million times."
— Jim Treacher (@jtLOL)
"Gangnam Style" has been visited 1,795,227,847 times. Beat that, !

Not only is President Obama foolish to tie traffic numbers to enrollment success, but he’s dishonest. Prospective applicants are consistently met with timeouts and error pages:
O: "Turns out there's a massive demand" for Obamacare. Site visited 20 million times. But most are frustrated when they try to log on

But according to Obama, they’re already benefiting. We all are. We just don’t know it yet:
Obama: You're actually already benefiting from this law, America!

Obama: "You're already benefiting [unemployed, uninsured, working part time] because of this Law"!

What a joke.
Obamacare is good even though it sucks.
