I don't get this strategy from the White House:
During an interview with The Hill in his West Wing office, White House press secretary Robert Gibbs blasted liberal naysayers, whom he said would never regard anything the president did as good enough....
The press secretary dismissed the “professional left” in terms very similar to those used by their opponents on the ideological right, saying, “They will be satisfied when we have Canadian healthcare and we’ve eliminated the Pentagon. That’s not reality.”
No matter what, the White House is going to need left-wing voters in the fall and in 2012. I get that they are unhappy at being attacked from left-wing bloggers, but is this in any way going to help matters? Why does Obama think that sounding like Newt Gingrinch or the morning show on Fox News will help them politically?
