Obama publishes academic paper #ObamaJAMA - REEEEEEEETTTTTTTCCCCCCCHHHHHHH

The article, titled "United States Health Care Reform: Progress to Date and Next Steps," with "Barack Obama, JD" listed as the author, was published in the prestigious Journal of the American Medical Association (known as JAMA) on July 11. 
People are freaking out about it of course:

Here's the thing though:

1.  I don't think he actually wrote it:

2.  The article isn't really that scholarly - mainly just a rehash of policy fights and statements.
3.  It omits things like the fact that insurance exchanges are going bankrupt while preaching how great Obamacare is.  (in fact the Oregon excahnge where my employer was getting their insurance (cheap dumbasses) just went bankrupt)

So color me unimpressed.
