That statement was made by President Obama in his softball interview with Diane Sawyer, or at least what's left of her that's not collagen. If ever there were words that would come back to haunt a president...that's almost up there with "Bring 'em on."
He listens to his enemies and ignores his voters. I am now officially off him. Not that I am turning Republican either, though. I have always tried to avoid the easy cynicism that both parties are the same. That's not so much the case here. It's more like that Obama is so weak and so easily ruled by his need to win over his enemies--who will never be won--that he is more than happy to spit in the eye of his base. It doesn't matter that the GOP are not in charge. They're deferred to anyway, and Obama has absolutely no spine. Show me, Obama, how you differ from having a Republican there. Otherwise we might as well save a step, & have someone there we already know to suspect.
If you take a shot every time this tool from the White House(whom Maddow gives not a moment's deference to--she's one of the few true investigative journalists on TV) repeats the mantra "jobs middle class," you may die of alcohol poisoning.
Hey, here's something that'll save money. Lives too. Getting the hell out of Iraq and Afghanistan. You know, like he'd said he'd do by now. But wait: The Pentagon is explicitly exempted from this freeze!
When it comes time to vote, he will be baseless. The Republicans are an evil gang, and could never win my vote. But I have no idea what the Democrats are, apart from purveyors of one of the worst betrayals of all, false hope.
