    White House to Dems: Punch Back Twice As Hard

    1. Axelrod holds FIGHT BACK training session for SENATORS

    2. I wonder how Evan Bayh and Byron Dorgan feel about getting SCHOOLED by the likes of Axelrod

    3. Faced with mounting public outrage and plunging poll numbers in support of its reforms, party "leadership," instead of reaching out and listening, trying to cobble consensus, rather goes on the ATTACK

    4. How do you spell C-H-I-C-A-G-O?

    5. No surer way to turn opposition into hate

    6. The White House is just killing itself

    7. Poll numbers small must surely shrink

    8. Opposition must naturally grow and get hotter

    9. Politics, exactly like physics

    10. Unbelievably obtuse Obama, he just doesn't get it

    White House to Democrats: 'Punch back twice as hard' - Carrie Budoff Brown - POLITICO.com

    Top White House aides gave Senate Democrats a recess battle plan on Thursday, arming the lawmakers with tips for avoiding disastrous town hall meetings while showing them polling on popular aspects of the reform effort.

    They showed video clips of the confrontational town halls that have dominated the media coverage, and told senators to do more prep work than usual for their public meetings by making sure their own supporters turn out, senators and aides said.

    And they screened TV ads and reviewed the various campaigns by critics of the Democratic plan.

    If you get hit, we will punch back twice as hard,” Messina said, according to an official who attended the meeting.

    The hourlong session was the last opportunity for Democratic leaders and the White House to prepare senators for what will be a crucial month in shaping public opinion on health care. With no final legislation to promote, senators have expressed concern about dealing with questions and criticisms about the almost $1 trillion overhaul. The spate of confrontational town hall meetings have raised the stakes.

    “They are just helping us understand the fringe that is trying to mess up our meetings,” said Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.).
    No wonder town halls are turning VIOLENT.

    Its actually nice to see the Democrats growing a spine and not being afraid to stand up to the mob mentality of the right-wing and the insurance companies.

    So the Anti-Republican solution to senior citizens objecting to Dear Leader's Death Care Agenda is a bat to the head?

    That's not showing spine....that's turning tail and running for cover.

    Agreed. Let's fight the lies and stupidity of the right!
    It's time for a revolution in our country. Not a revolution forged with guns and bombs but a revolution forged of compassion and altruism. A revolution that extends a hand to those who don't have and who cannot. A revolution that makes Health Care available to all those in the US.

    You're cheering on the use of violence to suppress dissent against the government? You're ok with fat union thugs throwing citizens out of town hall meetings?

    Re: White House to Dems: Punch Back Twice As Hard

    obama clearly does not understand the difference between LEADERSHIP and cheap, ordinary oppostion politics

    he's using the tactics of folks on the OUT

    he doesn't seem to understand he's BOSS

    as such, of course naturally he draws criticism

    it's a HUGE part of his job

    how he deals with naysayers is the mark of the MAN

    he appears very, very petty, partisan political

    LEADERSHIP requires SIZE

    opposition (my gig, now) is cheap, easy and political

    LEADERSHIP (which i've enjoyed many times) is expensive, difficult and visionary

    obama's "vision" is tunnel variety

    what a PUNK

    LOLOL!

    and just look at his polls, even his personals

    thru the floor

    and fast sinking, shrinking

    look closer at his approvals on ISSUES, particularly those ECONOMIC

    and ECONOMICS is the ONLY thing on america's mind these days

    he's looking at 70+ opposed to ALL of his fiscal particulars

    ie, he just doesn't get it

    LEADERSHIP, he just doesn't get it

    clearly, his "supporters" don't either

    oh well

    to each his own

    party on, obama

    CRACK HEADS

    LOLOLOL!
