During a speech given at Northwestern University that focused mostly on the economy Thursday, President Obama took a shot at Fox News over the issue of ObamaCare and seemed to lift a line directly from Ezra Klein.
President Obama: While affordable health care might still be a threat to freedom on Fox News, it’s working pretty well in the real world.

From the transcript:
I am not on the ballot this fall. Michelle’s pretty happy about that. But make no mistake: these policies are on the ballot. Every single one of them. This isn’t a political speech, and I’m not going to tell you who to vote for – even though I suppose it is kind of implied.
But I have laid out my ideas to create more jobs and grow more wages. A true opposition party should have the courage to lay out theirs. There’s a reason fewer Republicans are preaching doom on deficits – because they’re now manageable. There’s a reason fewer are running against Obamacare – because while good, affordable health care might still be a fanged threat to freedom on Fox News, it’s working pretty well in the real world.
Fox News has been a frequent target of the president.
