White House uses e-mail to counter health critics

WASHINGTON (AP) – President Barack Obama’s push to revamp health care got a boost Thursday as a new coalition of drug makers, unions, hospitals and others launched a $12 million pro-overhaul ad campaign. Meanwhile, the administration sought to regain control of the health care debate by asking supporters to forward a chain e-mail to counter criticism that’s circulating on the Internet.

The e-mail by White House senior adviser David Axelrod offers reasons to support Obama’s agenda – and myths to debunk.

Axelrod wrote that opponents are relying on tactics including “viral e-mails that fly unchecked and under the radar, spreading all sorts of lies.”

“So let’s start a chain e-mail of our own,” he said, inviting supporters to forward a message countering claims that Obama’s plans would lead to rationing, encourage euthanasia or deplete veterans’ health care.

Did YOU get one of the emails from David Axelrod? I did. I deleted it, because I don’t care to hear any more Obamanure than I absolutely have to. But now I have to wonder, why am I getting the emails? I have NEVER subscribed to anything from the White House web site.

Say… Am I on that LIST? The [email protected] list? I think that was the address, not sure, it was something like that.

Maybe it’s the [email protected] address. You never know anymore. We have a POTUS that is into the ‘net, and that man just loves him some BlackBerry. Oops. I said BlackBerry in reference to Obama, I bet they call me a racist for that. I’ll be on The List for sure now. :?

Even as public skepticism over Democrats’ health overhaul plans boils over at town hall meetings nationwide, the ad is the latest example of the odd-bedfellows help that Obama is getting in his plea to Congress to enact comprehensive legislation to lower costs and extend coverage to the nearly 50 million uninsured.

Maybe if they hadn’t tried so hard to get away with [email protected], that one generated some anger I think. A lot of Grandma’s just aren’t ready to go yet. Might be why Grandma Sarah Palin was fighting the ObamaCare Obamanure so hard.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin refused to retreat from her debunked claim that a proposed health care overhaul would create “death panels,” as the growing furor over end-of-life consultations forced a key group of senators to abandon the idea in their bill. SOURCE

Maybe we need to see a *Grandma’s of the World United against letting Obama kill ‘em* group on Facebook. There’s an idea… :)

Honestly, I don’t mind the White House trying to spread this Obamanure around, it’s what they do. But the Obamanure is so thick right now, it’s stifling.

I just want to know how I got on David Axelrod’s list of people to Obamaure? I didn’t ask to be there, I don’t see a Safe Unsubscribe button, when I sent a reply telling them to take me off the list, my screen went blank for 3 minutes, the computer did a re-boot and the whole house has had the slight odor of Obamanure ever since. Smells like the Mesquite Rodeo Arena, if you get my drift…

And for those that haven’t noticed, I am working really hard to clean up my language. I am now saying Obamanure, and not BULL SHIT, so, any time you see the word Obamanure, just think BULL SHIT and we’ll all be on the same page!

Nothing like making the blog a classier place… :P
