WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Barack Obama accused his critics on Saturday of resorting to "outlandish rumors" and "misleading information" aimed at derailing his efforts to overhaul the $2.5 trillion U.S. healthcare system.

Obama struck back at conservative opponents as lawmakers returned home for their August break facing an increasingly rancorous battle over his top domestic legislative priority. A deal on healthcare has yet to be struck in Congress.

1. He needs to stop being mealy-mouthed on this.
The Republicans aren't guilty of "outlandish rumors" and "misleading information." The Republicans are lying. Using the more polite terms that the President uses serves no one at this point. He needs to state that the Republicans are lying and itemize the lies.

Anything less only prolongs this nonsense.
