CNBC's Cramer: Blame Congress for Obama's Diminishing Popularity 1.10.2009 NewsBusters
Karl Rove, David Axelrod - look out. CNBC "Mad Money" host Jim Cramer has the political climate figured out. Since inauguration, President Barack Obama has seen his approval ratings fall by almost every poll and that's historically a normal reaction as the newness wears off a new president. During his Sept. 30 "Stop Trading" segment on CNBC's "Street Signs," Cramer pointed out that although the prospects of Obama's ideal health care reform package passing are doubtful, health insurance providers are facing fallout from a publicity campaign meant by the administration to push through health insurance reform. That gives the administration a new villain. Video below fold "The last thing they need is still ...

Chris Bowers: Our Only Hope For The Public Option Is The White House 1.10.2009 Crooks Liars
When in doubt, I turn to Chris Bowers . He didn't disappoint me - he had ready a step-by-step explanation of what needs to happen to get the public option in the bill sent to the Senate floor: The bad news is that we learned today that the Senate Finance Committee will not report a public option in its version of health care reform. The good news is that we also learned today that there are 51 votes in favor of Schumer's public option. Here is how we get to 51: Add Joe Biden Arguably, proving that there are 51 votes in favor of Schumer's public option is the bigger news. This is because everyone knew the public option would be defeated in committee, but claims that there were 51 votes in favor of a trigger-less public option were pretty ...

Alan Grayson hit back today at the Republicans who said he should apologize for his biting attack against them . He got honest about the Republican plan for health care reform: "Don't get sick.

CNN anchor challenges Frank Luntz for role in right wing anger 1.10.2009 NewsTrust Yahoo Pipes Feed
DOWNLOADS: (131) PLAYS: (870) CNN's John Roberts challenged GOP pollster Frank Luntz for his role in using "charged language" and fomenting right-wing anger at health care reform. Heather: This was a typical softball interview from John Roberts where he didn't hit Luntz the way I would have if given the chance to ask him how he feels about selling his soul for a buck and giving the Republicans their talking points on the health care debate. That said, I think Roberts is the first person I've seen in the MSM to actually ask the man if he should feel any responsibility for whipping up the anger at these town halls. You would never see that question asked of Luntz over at ClusterFox that he loves to call home. It's a question that ...
