Obama To Speak to Press Partisan Supporters at 2:30 Sharp

Oh I was just kidding with the "sharp" thing. I imagine Obama will hit the podium around three-ish.

FoxNews' live feed is here.

I don't know if he'll be taking questions. FoxNews has the video captioned as Obama "delivering remarks" about Obamacare, which implies to me he's going to read a prepared statement and then leave. Maybe he'll answer one or two questions. Maybe.

But more likely he'll just deliver an agitprop message about how awesome Obamacare is. He'll be going "on offense" on Obamacare.

And that means only one thing: Speeches, and "better messaging."

It is somehow appropriate that the administration’s health-care plan, which was sold on the basis of multiple untruths (keep your health-care plan, keep your doctor, bend the cost curve) is now itself a grand deception. The Web site provides the illusion of a working health-care exchange, but while it takes your information, there’s no telling what it will do with it (e.g. lose it, send duplicates, garble it). It’s the embodiment of the administration’s fixation on treating every substantive issue and real screw-up as a ”message” problem. Now White House spokesman Jay Carney can “message” (when a noun is made into a new verb you know something phony is going on) that the Web site is “working.” The only problem is that it isn’t. Ironically, the president was the one to point it out: Obamacare is more than a Web site. The Web site is a portal. Now that you can enter it, you expect to get the insurance you paid for? Silly you.

One third of all "selections" of health care plans via Healthcare.gov are actually lost or destroyed or incorrectly formatted. So one third of folks who think they'll have insurance on January 1st... actually won't.

Obama, of course, will not address this. Facts cannot be allowed to get in the way of "messaging."
