Since early February, we’ve seen increasing numbers of militant right-wing activists attending public meetings across the country targeting Members of Congress and President Obama. Now in the August recess, the “tea-bagger” protesters and right-wing activists are showing up in larger numbers with a mission to be as disruptive as possible in the hopes of rattling Members of Congress and halting health care reform through pure spectacle and obstruction. Our response is shaped by 3 things:
* Our targets are Members of Congress who must vote “yes” for this bill. Our targets are not the right-wing extremists. The targets of these attacks are Members of Congress. Those Members are also our targets. We need to use these attacks as opportunities to work with the Members in ways that build our relationship in the field and bring us together as allies in health care reform. Members may be more receptive to partnering with us if they know we will help them combat the opposition. * Our core message is effective, and we should always come back to it. Our campaign plan has always anticipated opposition. No matter what the right-wingers bring up to distract the debate, we should always circle back to our key message. We are on the side of quality, affordable health care for everyone, and we are against turning over health care reform to the insurance companies and lobbyists who got us into this mess to begin with. We need to educate the press and the public that the protesters are aligned with the corporate lobbyists and insurance companies who are trying to stop reform.

RUSH: President Obama has arrived at Marxist Vineyard, has told the press no coverage, just leave us alone, we don’t want any coverage here, just leave us alone. I feel like waiting for the next headline on Drudge to be: “People to President: Leave Us Alone! Keep your hands off our health care; keep your hands off our Social Security; keep your hands off everything, just stay up there in Marxist Vineyard with your buddy skip Gates and go play a couple rounds of golf.”
In fact, I have a very good friend — I wonder if I should say this — one of my really good friends owns the golf course on Martha’s Vineyard. Now, there are two golf courses up there but “the” golf course on Marxist Vineyard is owned by a friend of mine and I’m told that arrangements have been made that Obama and his merry band of golfers is going to show up there a couple, three times this week.

It was recently reported that in the Senate there is a bill, that if signed into law, would give the government control over Internet service providers and commercial computer systems during national emergencies. While I’m sure everyone’s heart is in the right place, this is one idea I hope gets sent to the bit bucket.

If they could vote to keep or replace the entire Congress, just 25% of voters nationwide would keep the current batch of legislators.
