President Obama's political team took to the airwaves today, saying their boss will reverse the recent spate of bad news by fighting for average Americans against "the special interests" on such items as health care and jobs. . .http://content.usatoday.com/communities/theoval/post/2010/01/sundays-best-the-obama-team-tries-to-battle-back/1
Pledges to "fight" for the middle class come less than a week after the Republican victory in the Massachusetts Senate race deprived Obama's Democrats of a filibuster-proof 60-seat super-majority -- a development that puts Obama's health care plan and other initiatives in political jeopardy.
Putting every top aide on every channel and every Sunday talk show with platitudes about "fighting for the middle class" is an admission of failure. If you were doing it, you wouldn't have to convince people.
