Obama finally found his mark, a villain he could love to hate. After months of corporate lobbyist wheeler-dealering, in which Obama’s minions squeezed advertising dollars out of Big Pharma and others, the insurance industry balked at a deal.
So Obama unleashed the Justice Department’s anti-trust division, and most important, the power of Obama’s oratory. The One took on The Bad One.
But it’s too little, too late. Obama may get a bill rammed through Congress in a last minute scramble, but not because of Obama’s power of persuasion.
Obama is so overexposed, that no one is listening or linking. Take a look at the Memeorandum thread above-right (as of 6 p.m. Saturday). Think Progress, ever the loyal Obama media servant, did the write-up on Obama’s speech to get the word out, but almost no one linked.
“They don’t link, they don’t call. After all I’ve done for them.” Or something like that.
