Obama and Health Care


If Obama is proven to have made mistakes when we see what comes out of the World’s Worst Deliberative Body, they will have been about his strategy with respect to Congress: being to willing to cave to Blue Dog objections while receiving nothing in return, not using whatever leverage he can to instill real party discipline. On the other hand, I don’t think changing his rhetorical strategy for selling health care could have made much difference. The McCaugheys and Palins would have put out all kinds of screaming nonsense about absolutely any proposal framed in any way and gotten in taken seriously in a large number of media outlets. Liberals need to figure out how to counteract it, not try to preempt it, because the latter is impossible.
