How Obama Gets His Groove back

The media have bought into the Rethug line on the stimulus bill, The rethugs are extracting favors like Senate picks when they should be groveling for forgiveness for the past 8 years.

The perception is Obama is faltering. The Rethugs, villagers, and establishment Washington want to "Take Him Down a Peg."

Well, he is the President, and here's how he can win, and get this stimulus bill wrapped and shut the critics up.

I respectfully suggest that the President co-op 5 minutes at the beginning of the evening news. Tonight. Every channel, even cable.

Just take 5 minutes, and use a power point to show us how the bill will help. Say directly who is holding up the train (republican bastards) and a specific example of how this is hurting America. That they are hurting your family to make a political point.

At the end, ask for our help and flash the switchboard number to congress. Tell us to call in the morning at 9 AM and ask our congress critter/senator to put America first and support the stim bill now!

We need an FDR moment here. Simple. Direct. Bypasses the Broder/Scarborough/Will/Dowd/ crowd.

BTW, when I have called the white house switchboard (202-456-1414) to suggest this, I have asked to be connected to:

Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel

Deputy Chief of Staff Jim Messina

Deputy Chief of Staff Mona Sutphen

Senior Adviser David Axelrod

Senior Adviser Valerie Jarrett

Senior Adviser Pete Rouse

I was always put moved to general comments. Can anyone pass this message on from a regular guy?
