Racist, Bitter Clinger Blasts Obama Message Team And Calls Them Lazy

Oops. I meant to say John Aravosis.

The problem with the stimulus messaging is, well, the stimulus messaging itself. The problem is the White House messaging operation. It kind of sucks. And while Joe and I were living in Democratic exile over the past year for being the Cassandra's who saw all of this coming early on, nowadays it's pretty much accepted around town that the WH has been losing the messaging war with the GOP on a lot of issues. The stimulus isn't the problem, it's the symptom. We had the same issue come up with health care reform, a wildly popular idea that somehow the White House just couldn't sell.

I'm not going to write a graduate thesis here on marketing. But at times it feels as though the White House messaging folks - and I'm talking Axelrod's shop - don't think they even need try to sell what the President peddles. It's as if they think they're all so smart, and what they have to offer so obviously good for America, that the President's agenda will magically sell itself to both the Hill and the American people {that, and they assumed the MSM will carry their water, thus keeping them lazy and from having to have a strong message game-ed}.

It won't.

Democrats suck at marketing while governing. And while Obama was (generally) great at it during the campaign, so was Jimmy Carter.

Wow. Look, I don't expect Aravosis to become a Tea Partier, but when one of the most loyal shills Obama has writes this, this is not good. But, of course, the blame is not on Obama; notice the blame is placed on the message team. But who hires and ultimately manages the message team?

Oh well. This is gonna get good.
