    Two senior administration officials confirm to FOX News that President Obama is actively considering a prime-time address from the Oval Office or an address to a joint session of Congress to invigorate the debate, as Congress returns from a rocky recess. And the path forward, as the president sees it, is to unify Democrats around the three House bills and one Senate bill that have already passed out of committee.
  • Rahm Pushes the Networks (to broadcast Obama press conference in prime time)

    Washington Post ^ | August 3, 2009 | Howard Kurtz
    In the days before President Obama's last news conference, as the networks weighed whether to give up a chunk of their precious prime time, Rahm Emanuel went straight to the top. Rather than calling ABC, the White House chief of staff phoned Bob Iger, chief executive of parent company Disney. Instead of contacting NBC, Emanuel went to Jeffrey Immelt, the chief executive of General Electric. He also spoke with Les Moonves, the chief executive of CBS Corp., the company spun off from Viacom. Whether this amounted to undue pressure or plain old Chicago arm-twisting, Emanuel got results: the fourth hour...

    So let us now turn our attention to an item in yesterday's Daily Times Herald in Carroll, Iowa entitled "Carroll woman's answer to highly visible Obama: Selling her televisions." A 78-year-old Carroll woman says she's so tired of seeing President Barack Obama on the airwaves that she's selling her television sets - two of them. Deloris Nissen, a retired nurses' aide and former Kmart employee who was raised on a farm near Audubon, placed a classified advertisement with The Daily Times Herald for Friday's paper. In the $5.50 ad, Nissen tells readers she has two television sets for sale. The...

    ... In response to a question at his prime-time news conference about the arrest of Henry Louis Gates Jr., the black Harvard professor, in his own home over the weekend, Mr. Obama declared that the Cambridge, Mass., police had “acted stupidly.” ... The police were called to Mr. Gates’s house after a report of a robbery in progress. Mr. Gates, saying he was jimmying open a damaged front door, said he told the police he lived in the house. Still, the police report said he was arrested for “loud and tumultuous behavior in a public space.” He was held in...

    PRESIDENT Barack Obama said police had acted "stupidly" in arresting a prominent black Harvard University scholar at his own home, weighing in on escalating debate over the treatment of minorities by US law enforcement officers. Mr Obama acknowledged at a prime-time White House news conference, he did not know all the facts about the arrest last week of Henry Louis Gates at his residence in Cambridge, Massachusetts. But reciting details from news reports, Mr Obama left little doubt he felt Mr Gates had been wronged in the incident, which has created a media furor. Mr Gates, a renowned expert on...

    Obama delivers lackluster health care message President spends an hour recycling old patches of rhetoricAnalysis By Howard Fineman msnbc.com contributor updated 4 minutes ago 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...

    President Obama said on Wednesday that his healthcare monstrosity must be passed without delay, (like every other big spending bill he wants passed) saying that rising costs were the main driver behind his federal deficits. However, he failed to articulate how he would pay for the expansion, in the very same government programs of concern, and failed to make clear how his reform would save money. It won't. The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) says so, and Mr. Obama knows this.

    Obama's news conference live. "Multiple tests by doctors waste money. And I'm going to change that. If there is a blue pil and a red pill and the red pill costs twice as much, I want discriminating consumers to select the blue pill." I am not making this up. Obama is incoherent. "We had the bank bailout. We had the recovery package. People are saying, 'Look. I'm cutting back.' Let's understand that the same must be applied to healthcare. When I came in, we had a deficit and the US had lost trillions of dollars of wealth. That all just...

    The lapdog media in what can kindly be described as a docile press conference on healthcare lobbed Obama a race charged question giving him, yet again, another opportunity to whip the American people with the racism charge and demonize law enforcement as racist. He grabbed the opportunity on national television, in yet another seizure of the airwaves, to divide and create discord. Mind you this is Obama's fourth prime time press event in almost as many months - more than Bush had in his last three years (and the craven networks would not accommodate Bush's last one (while we were...
  • The Snake Oil Salesman on Tonight

    The President will be on prime time tonight trying to dupe the duped again. Hussein Obama is equivalent to the snake oil salesman of the old west. They were good at selling their wares to all those expecting a magic solution to all their ills. They had dubious credentials, selling some type of medicine with boisterous marketing hype, supported by a bogus scientific study or evidence. To enhance sales, an accomplice in the crowd (a “shill”, some liberal follower today) would often “attest” the value of the product in an effort to provoke buying enthusiasm. Afterwards, the salesman (doctor) would...

But the session, beginning at 8 p.m. Eastern, will be carried by networks including ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, CNBC, C-SPAN, Fox News Channel, MSNBC and PBS. Fox, which plans to air entertainment programming instead, also opted out of Obama's prime-time news conference last April.

    WASHINGTON, July 22 (UPI) -- U.S. President Barack Obama shifts his effort to convince the American people healthcare reform is the right thing to do right now to prime time Wednesday. In an evening news conference, Obama is expected to outline the case for healthcare reform as well as provide an update on what has been accomplished since he took office in January. White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel told The New York Times Obama intends to use the news conference as a "six-month report card," to talk about "how we rescued the economy from the worst recession" and...

    President Obama’s plan for a government takeover of health care is in trouble. Obama ordered up a prime-time last push on Wednesday from his media accomplices, and today will be a big day for them to be ganging up on opponents. Mostly, the targets are Democrats in the House and Senate who are rejecting his so-called public option. Obama has invited a number of wavering Dems to the White House today, planning on arm-twisting sessions aimed at getting their support for the gargantuan -- and unread -- plan to take over the health care of all Americans and add another...

    Most will carry Obama press conference; time shifted after NBC balked UPDATED: After some hesitation and a time shift, three major broadcast networks have agreed to carry Barack Obama's latest primetime news conference. The event was announced Friday afternoon as Obama battles to bolster congressional support for an ambitious health-care overhaul while facing dropping approval ratings. But broadcasters are struggling with falling approval ratings of their own; Nielsen's audience measurements show viewership in a summertime slump. The conference will mark the president's fourth primetime press event since he took office six months ago. Such interruptions tend to wreak havoc with...

    Media Bias: ABC's prime-time special starring President Obama was shameless journalistic favoritism. But as a promotional event, it backfired; the broadcast revealed no public demand for his vision of health reform.After announcing that it would carve out a valuable evening slot for what might best be called "The Health Care Show Starring Barack Obama," ABC assured the public it would be no glorified White House infomercial. But an analysis of the broadcast's content indicates otherwise. The program's real name was "Questions for the President: Prescription for America." But it was more like "Long Answers from the President." Obama had plenty...
