Pathetic: Obama Hack Blames Media for Plummeting Health Care Support

They're just desperately lashing out, pitifully unable to come to grips with the reality that people just do not want socialist health care.
Healthcare reform supporters can't rely on the media to debunk myths about legislation, the director of President Obama's political arm said Tuesday.

In an email to supporters, Organizing for America (OFA) Director Mitch Stewart encouraged recipients to "double our own efforts to get the truth out" about healthcare reform.

"Over the past few months, two things have become clear about the fight for health insurance reform," Stewart wrote. "1. Our opponents will create and spread outrageous lies to try to stop President Obama from creating real change. 2. We just can't count on the media to debunk them."

The president had blamed the media for helping propagate some of the "misinformation" about his healthcare plans, saying "part of the reason it spreads is the way reporting is done today."
Never before in our history has the media been so in the tank for a president and for these clowns to start blaming the media just shows how quickly this administration is unraveling. When an overwhelmingly liberal media is unable to contain the disintegration of Obama's public support it isn't their fault.

Maybe Obama and his policies are to blame, don't you think?

Meanwhile, it's time for Bammy to regroup and run some misdirection.
Top officials privately concede the past six weeks have taken their toll on Obama's popularity. But the officials also see the new diminished expectations as an opportunity to prove their critics wrong by signing a health care law, showing progress in Afghanistan, and using this month's anniversary of the fall of Lehman Brothers to push for a crackdown on Wall Street.
Ah yes, just what the ailing economy needs. A crackdown on those who produce.
Also this fall, Obama wants to slap new regulations on Wall Street firms, a goal that is now considered a higher priority than cap-and-trade energy legislation in the West Wing. White House officials think the legislation will show voters, especially wavering independents, that he is serious about making the culprits of the economic crisis pay.
In that case, they can go after Barney Frank, Chris Dodd and his pals at Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.
