I just did a piece about Anthony Weiner trying to find his way back …..
It seems that Politico has gone to him and has him stepping back into the game with his comments…..
And he makes a damn good point….
The Obama White House never sold the Healthcare program much…..
and still haven’t….
I think the guy is gonna throw his hat back in the ring……
Maybe a run for New York City Mayor?
POLITICO contacted Weiner this week, and he offered his thoughts on what Democrats could have done better messaging-wise in the run-up to Thursday’s highly anticipated decision.
“Passing the law was the good thing to do and the right thing to do, but the campaign for it kind of stopped the moment it was passed. It was an article of faith that once people understood the benefits of the law, they would like it,” he said. “We were right on the substance, and right on the politics in the long term. But we have not done nearly as good a job fighting for it, communicating it, and defending it.”
Weiner said that given the enormity of the health care system and the massive bill that Democrats passed to help fix it, public approval was “never going to happen automatically.” He said he contacted the White House to find out what it was doing to mark the law’s first anniversary — as he set up several online and public events to talk about the law — and was surprised the administration had very little planned.Share on Facebook
