Get this: The party of "community orga nizers" is now whining that President Obama's critics are organizing com munities -- against his health-care scheme.
The nerve of 'em, huh?
Faced with mushrooming opposition to ObamaCare, Democrats have launched a multi-media campaign that attacks foes as "extremists" who've "called out the mob" to "destroy President Obama" and "intimidate and silence regular people." They cite "the playbook of high-level Republican political operatives."
Actually, that sounds more like the tactics of the Chicago street, where Barack Obama and Rahm Emanuel cut their political teeth. Indeed, you can almost hear Richard Nixon grousing about angry anti-war protestors and pleading for "the great silent majority of Americans" to rise up.
Some Dems, like New York's Rep. Anthony Weiner, are even trying to hold town-hall meetings on the sly, with little advance notice, to keep critics from attending.
And the White House has called on its supporters to "report" any "fishy" information about ObamaCare that they may hear, even in casual conversation.
Talk about intimidation.
Yet poll after poll has shown that criticism is actually coming from -- yup -- "regular people," Republicans and Democrats alike, who just don't trust the plan.
That resentment won't be undone by the Obama team's brass-knuckle brand of political smears. (SOURCE NY POST)
