So much for these bizarre theories that President Barack Obama is toying with a grand triangulation strategy, whereby he abandons his Democratic congressional allies in the 2010 elections and allows Republicans to win and save his fiscal fat from the fire. The New York Times is reporting that Obama is unleashing yet another public relations blitz to sell his already passed but woefully unpopular health care bill, at least in part to help Democrats who supported the boondoggle.
As soon as Obama can spare the time to take a break from entertaining himself with publicly funded rock 'n' roll parties, he'll begin an Obamaganda campaign to convince the stubbornly unsophisticated majority that Obamacare is the panacea for not only their health needs but also the nation's financial difficulties. I wish I were being facetious.
The first stop on his tour will be Wheaton, Md., where he'll conduct a nationally televised stunt with senior citizens timed to coordinate with the mailing of the first batch of his magnanimous $250 rebate checks to Medicare beneficiaries to help pay for their medicines.
Why not? This president and his team of fellow Alinskyites are not particularly into governance. They can only dawdle, hyperventilate and scapegoat over the Gulf oil spill. They can only form fiscal commissions and make speeches about our accelerating fiscal crisis. They have no problem reverting to "community organizing," and that's what they plan to do in perpetuity -- at least on Obamacare.
The Times says the Wheaton event will be just the first in a series of "milestone moments" -- we'll call Wheaton a "senior moment" -- in which Obama "will weigh in" as various "consumer-friendly provisions" of Obamacare "take effect."
I'm just wildly speculating here, but I'm guessing Obama won't be holding similar town hall meetings to celebrate the more painful provisions of Obamacare or to answer questions about the many frauds he committed in the process of forcing passage of this bill.
