(WASHINGTON TIMES) President Obama on Thursday took a direct shot at Fox News, alleging that the network is spreading untruths about his signature health care reform law and ignoring the fact that it’s working well for most Americans.
During a speech at Northwestern University, Mr. Obama made clear that his policies, including Obamacare, are on the ballot for fellow Democrats in the November midterm elections. But he said that there are fewer Republicans centering their campaigns around opposition to those policies, despite the best efforts of the conservative media.
“I have laid out my ideas to create more jobs and grow more wages. A true opposition party should have the courage to lay out theirs. There’s a reason fewer Republicans are preaching doom on deficits — because they’re now manageable,” Mr. Obama said.
