Obama delivers lackluster health care message

President spends an hour recycling old patches of rhetoric

Analysis

Howard Fineman

WASHINGTON - I’ve been covering Barack Obama for a few years, and it’s usually crystal clear what he is up to. Not last night. This is the first time I’ve asked myself: what was THAT all about?

His prime time press conference was worse than a waste of time. He spent an hour (with the aide of a soporific White House press corps) pouring sand (one grain at a time) into the already-slowing gears of the machinery of health-care reform.

He made no real news on health care, but DID make news on race relations with his discussion of the Skip Gates case – thereby obscuring the topic he supposedly wanted to feature.

LOL. That really sums it up.

That was followed by "...[he is] clearly in need of a vacation." Huh? Most people think he hasn't lifted a finger for more than a day or two. He seems to be on permanent vacation.

I suspect Mr. Fineman will be getting a call from the bosses at NBC about his failure to drink the koolaid.

The amazing thing about this story is that it was written by someone at MSLSD. Not sure what to make of that.

What I can’t believe is on the MSNBC page it says Fineman will be a guest on the Maddow show to give his analysis.

How will she stand for anything being bad being said about 0bama?

It looks like the MSM is even waking-up and slowly they are taking the crown off of Hitler II-0bama.

Im a little shocked.

You’d think by now that the networks would be getting tired of giving the usurper hours of free air time, while no ones watches, just so he can spin his socialist agenda. I’m sick of it and I never watch his propaganda shows.

pouring sand (one grain at a time).... 'That really sums it up."

I thought so, too. The whole thing was painfully obtuse.

"The amazing thing about this story is that it was written by someone at MSLSD. Not sure what to make of that."

How about this?. It is becoming evident even to the drunk on Kool Aid liberal media that the emperor has no clothes. As long as they could manage to convince themselves he could pull off this wholesale taking over of the entire country and all that makes it up, they backed him to the hilt, figuring they would be rewarding in the "new America". But now that the hand writing is on the wall they, like the cowardly opportunists they are, have decided to now switch to the side of public opinion, a public opinion they have failed to sway. This WH Clown will be soon enough gone while they have their careers to worry about. Just watch, in a year or so they will all be saying they knew all along the guy was to inexperienced for the job.

Admittedly, I don't surf the DU side of the web much, but I'm hearing a consistent refrain about the speech last night. I didn't watch it, as I was engaged in money making activities. The consensus is incoherent, unfocused, and with several WTF moments, such as the Gates stuff.

With Clinton, the joke was always that if you scratched the surface you found more surface. 0bama has never had anything going for him other than image and relentless boosting regardless of the facts (well, he also had John McCain campaigning for him.) If the veneer of cool breaks down and enough people start examining the idiocy of his policy statements and the narcissism of his speeches we'll see something very unusual. Since what he wants to do is so destructive, that's not bad, but my feeling now is kind of like when Nixon was so badly damaged. I don't know what will happen next, but it's going to be interesting.

This is the truth and the bottom line.

I have heard (once diehard 0bama lovers that voted for him) say exactly this.

Back to health Care. The thing that frightens me the most (and what many will fall for) is that 0bama citing the insurance companies are big, bad and evil and made 300% profit will allow 0bama to spin a complete government take-over of healthcare. (SEE BANKS,CARS,CAP N TRADE and so on...)

They HAVE THE VOTES. They will ram it in AFTER elections.

No, Fineman, no. You can’t slither away from the responsibilities you had in putting Obama in the White House.

You and your Press cronies should have examined his record, his rhetoric and his background BEFORE the election.

Just because you now see what a disaster he is doesn’t shield you from your past journalistic malpractice.

You should be tarred and feathered for the damage you did to generations of Americans.

When an Obama kool-aid drinker writes something like this, it can't be good for Obama.

I didn't watch the speech last night (can't stomach this lying marxist, anymore), but this is eye opening.
