According to Gallup, 53% of Americans disapprove of the way President Obama is handling health care reform:
And what of all the “Lincolnesque” oratory from the President? Nada. Even with the media and Congress behind him, Obama can’t make the sale:
Despite the considerable efforts of Congress and the president to pass health insurance reform, the public remains reluctant to endorse that goal. Over the past month, Gallup has found more Americans opposed to than in favor of healthcare legislation.
So, the only remaining question is whether Obama and his congressional accomplices will defy the public on this boondoggle.
Maybe Obama is having trouble selling “reform” because his journalistic allies are people like Nicholas Kristoff, whose most recent work of fiction receives a much-deserved skewering from Michelle Malkin.
It would not be unreasonable for the public to conclude that any health care legislation favored by Kristoff and Obama’s other media shills must have something seriously wrong with it.
