My goal for this weekend

Posted by Richard on September 18, 2009

My goal for this weekend is to avoid seeing any of the eleventy-seven media-abetted infomercials disguised as interviews by President Obama about his health care plan. It looks like it won't be easy. I'll have to avoid network television, cable news channels, local news broadcasts, and the Home Shopping Network (he's doing a gig on HSN, right?). But football season has started, and it looks like a great weekend in Denver for getting outdoors, so I think I can manage it.

BTW, would someone please direct me to Obama's health care plan? There's one House bill, H.R. 3200, and 3 or 4 Senate plans (including the new plan by Sen. Max Baucus, which is bipartisan in the sense that everyone hates it). But the Prez keeps talking about how his plan does this and doesn't do that — hey, where is that plan, Barry? If you've got something to offer other than what's been introduced in the House and Senate, let's see it!

Until I see this mythical Obama plan in writing, I'm not interested in hearing the marketing pitch for a non-existent product.

    I hope you achieved your goal, Richard.

    Apparently, Fox was the only network to ask him a really tough question. This article by John Fund is attracting some attention.

    I did achieve my goal, David — I saw not one minute of the Obama media blitz. It was a great weekend. 🙂

    But you’re wrong about Fox. Obama didn’t appear on Fox News Sunday — it was the ”only” Sunday news show on which he didn’t appear. In fact, he, his cabinet, and top aides are apparently boycotting Fox News.

    The tough question (“How is that not a tax?”) came from, of all people, George Stephanopoulos on his ABC News show, “This Week” (BTW, can you imagine Karl Rove getting a gig hosting a hard news show?).

    In fact, you emailed some of us a link to a good Wall Street Journal commentary about it.

    Thanks for the link to John Fund’s ACORN commentary! It’s very good and accurate, but I couldn’t get over my annoyance at his insistence on calling it “Acorn.” It’s an acronym, dammit!
