Denny's Daily Zinger: Team Obama’s Rotten PR

I believe in health care for all. The idea of non-coverage because of a pre-existing condition is obscene. And if a serious illness occurred, that uninsured person could lose the house.

Pre-ObamaCare, the health care system was a catastrophe.

It's still sick and needs work.

However, ObamaCare Works, in Spite of Team Obama's Lousy PR.
What triggered this column was the story of cancer patient Julie Boonstra, whose health care policy was canceled in the wake of ObamaCare. The Koch brothers ran attack ads. Actually, the patient could get a new policy under ObamaCare that would save her more than $1,000 a year.

If Obama PR were not run by Chicago political hacks, it would post an upbeat story like this every day of the week.

This is good copy. The media would run with it.

"PR is the business of letting people in on what you are doing," my first mentor Evelyn Lawson counseled.

Heath Care Horror Stories
I Googled "Health Care Horror Stories" and got four stunners, including a guy who lost his job and his house in 2005.

Obama Team PR should post one of these horror stories daily, as well—seven days a week.

The key copy drivers—the emotional hot buttons that will get the country together on health care: Fear, guilt, anger and salvation.

This is the business of world-class PR.

Sadly, nobody in the White House would recognize world-class PR if it crapped on their heads.

This presidency is a train wreck because of gawdawful PR.
