The President Says Politicans Shouldn't Read This Blog

This quote from President Obama today to Democratic Senators on how divine the what voters really want in today's media landscape:

“If we could just — excuse the press — turn off the cameras, turn off your CNN, your Fox, your MSNBC, your blogs, turn off this echo chamber … where the topic is politics. … We’ve got to get out of the echo chamber. That was a mistake I made last year — not getting out of here [Washington].”

Er, 'exsqueeze me,' but the Disease Management Care Blog humbly submits the White House and Congress would have done better with health reform if more of them had regularly checked in with this blog. It also objects to being included with the likes of CNN, Fox and MSNBC.

The DMCB is heartbroken. There is only one thing to do at times like this, and that's break into song.

The lyrics from The Maverick's Oh What A Crying Shame perfectly describe the bloggers' lament:

Mr. President, wasn't (we) good to you, didn't (we) show it....... and if we ever hurt you, we didn't know it.
