The Permanent Campaign...Obama On Health Care "Yes We Can", NY Times Spins Faster Than A Top In Support Of Dreamiest Man Ever In White House

Following up on Obama's "campaigny" push back on Iran, Obama reached back in his bag of tricks to rally the troops on health care reform.

Facing mounting doubts about health care reform proposals as they become reality – “To be candid with you, I don’t know that he has the votes right now,” Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., said on CNN Sunday, “I think there’s a lot of concern in the Democratic caucus” – President Obama today tried to rekindle some of campaign enthusiasm that swept him into office last November.

Addressing those “here in Washington who've grown accustomed to sky-is-falling prognoses and the certainties that we cannot get this done, I have to repeat and revive an old saying we had from the campaign: ‘Yes, we can,’” the President said Monday morning. “We are going to get this done.”

Things must be really looking bleak on the government take over front given the NY Times' need to dive even further in the tank for Obama than previously thought possible.

Over the weekend they came out with a poll saying everyone!!!11!! (well, 78% of Americans) supports "substantial changes to the health care system and are strongly behind one of the most contentious proposals"

That assumes you define "Americans" as people who voted for Obama since the NY Times poll substantially oversampled self-identified Obama voters.

"Obama Voters Support Obama Policy" isn't really that catchy of a headline compared to what (NewsBusters link) they actually ran..."In Poll, Wide Support for Government-Run Health"

So, allow me to sum up...

Health care nationalization? Yes We Can

Grab some ice cream while Tehran burns? Yes We Can

Say something supportive of Iranian protesters? No He Won't
