We Just Don’t Know What’s Good For Us

Support for the health care reform proposed by President Obama and congressional Democrats has hit an all time low, 41% for 56% against, according to Rassmussen Reports:

That’s down two points from a week ago and the lowest level of support yet measured.

Also according to Rassmussen:

Sixty-six percent (66%) of voters nationwide say they’re at least somewhat angry about the current policies of the federal government. Thirty-six percent (36%) are Very Angry.

How can that be after Obama’s big media blitz a couple weekends ago? His unprecedented feat of appearing on five talk shows on one Sunday was supposed to create a “buzz factor” , and “re-establish momentum” that would gain support for ObamaCare. Well, it created a buzz, alright, but not the right kind. When you consider that people were already complaining that Obama was on t.v too much, as far back as last January…a five show blitz in one day, after a summer health care speeches does not seem like a good idea. Especially because he had no new content to share with viewers, just the same old dubious claims. How can he generate momentum, without presenting some new improvement over what has already been offered?

Even Howard Fineman of Newsweek is getting sick of the shtick:

The president’s problem isn’t that he is too visible; it’s the lack of content in what he says when he keeps showing up on the tube. Obama can seem a mite too impressed with his own aura, as if his presence on the stage is the Answer. There is, at times, a self-referential (even self-reverential) tone in his big speeches.

Before the Democrats try to push the bill through without any Republican support, they would do well to heed Senator McConnell’s words:

If they try to use this legislative loophole called reconciliation, what they’ll be doing in effect is jamming through a proposal to rewrite the economy with about 24 hours of debate,” McConnell argued during an appearance on CNN. “I think that that will produce a very, very severe reaction among the American people.”

It is a good thing that other congressmen did not follow Rep. Joe Wilson’s lead. If they yelled out every time President Obama said something untrue about health care, they would quickly find themselves growing hoarse.

No doubt.
