Demo­cratic cam­paign em­braces ‘Oba­macare’

The Washington Times Daily - - Politics -

Pres­i­dent Obama’s re-elec­tion cam­paign has lifted an un­of­fi­cial ban on us­ing the op­po­si­tion’s de­ri­sive term for his health care law.

Demo­cratic ac­tivists have been chant­ing “We love Oba­macare” in front of the Supreme Court this week dur­ing oral ar­gu­ments.

And the cam­paign is sell­ing Tshirts and bumper stick­ers that pro­claim “I like Oba­macare.” Lori Lodes, who sup­ports the law, said the name “just rolls off the tongue much eas­ier.”

But no pres­i­den­tial cam­paign makes such a move lightly. Mr. Obama’s cam­paign is try­ing to use the weight of his op­po­nents’ rhetoric against them.

Deputy cam­paign man­ager Stephanie Cut­ter said the strat­egy “meets the vot­ers where they are” and shows Mr. Obama cares. Bureau. Mr. Brown’s new du­ties re­quire him to work two full days a month and up to two weeks dur­ing the sum­mer, a sched­ule that ap­plies to all Na­tional Guard mem­bers.

Mr. Brown has served in the Na­tional Guard for 33 years.
