Obama: Talkers 'Ginning Up' Opposition To Healthcare Bill
July 24, 2009 at 4:55 AM (PT)
President OBAMA blamed talk radio and cable news shows for Congressional resistance to his healthcare plan, telling an audience in SHAKER HEIGHTS, OH, THURSDAY that "all the folks who are getting ginned up on talk radio and some of these cable news shows, you know, I have to say that they have an effect on members of Congress."
OBAMA's remarks in a question-and-answer session came as part of his follow-up publicity blitz after his speech and press conference on the healthcare package on WEDNESDAY evening. He urged supporters to call senators and congresspersons, because "frankly, they are hearing from the other side."
