Howard Fineman’s Advice To The Obama Campaign: “Stop Telling The Truth”

Filed under: General — WLS @ 6:24 pm

Isn’t this just perfect. Formerly reputable newsman, now regular on Countdown, publishes an advice column today for the Obama campaign and its supporters: “STOP TELLING THE TRUTH.”

Here’s my advice to Sen. Barack Obama’s supporters: Stop predicting that the Democrats will sweep into the White House and Congress come January with a mandate to expand Big Government. That prospect, coupled with some of your candidate’s own tax and health-care plans, could scare swing voters you need next Tuesday…. [H]e also needs to reassure voters that he will not necessarily march in lockstep with resurgent Democrats who will want to launch a top-to-bottom New New Deal and reverse the Reagan Revolution 28 years after it took place.

He doesn’t? When has he ever broken step with the policy agenda of his party?

Fineman, a fitting representative of a once (long ago) honorable press corps, is sounding the alarm that the public shouldn’t know too much about what the Dems have in store — lest they decide they’re not too thrilled about it after all.

  6. Is he telling the truth @ $250,000, $200,000, $150,000? Or, is spreading the wealth the truth? Or is economic justice and redistribution the truth? Inquiring minds want to know.

  7. When, exactly, was his campaign telling the truth?

  8. His campaign was telling the truth when it said…wait, never mind. Well, there was the time when, ….forget that. OK, explain the truth and then we can go from there. Obama and his leftist illuminati ideals are redefining the truth.
