Obama: GOP is lying to you
Arguing doggedly against returning
Republicans to power, Obama told Iowa voters Wednesday that
<>Seventy voters -
the GOP has been dishonest about what needs to be done to revive the
economy and restore middle-class dreams.
"We can't pretend that there are shortcuts," the president said,
addressing about 70 voters in a grassy backyard.
He could talk to more Democrats by attending a Bartfest.
I'm so old, I remember when Obama used to speak to
but now he's down to trying to convince people 70 at a time?
"When you look at the choice we
face in this election coming up," Obama said, "the other side, what
really offering is the same policies that from 2001 to 2009 put off
hard problems and didn't really speak
honestly to the American people about how we're gonna get this country
on track over the long term."
Five weeks ahead of midterm elections, Obama confronted stark voter
angst. The first question he got
was from a woman who said of her son, a recent college graduate, and
his friends, "They are losing
their hope which is a message you inspired them with."
That sounds like a pretty good
speech - too bad he didn't deliever it in August 2009 when America's
house first caught fire. Obama was nowhere to be found in August
2009, and this Teabagging nonsense
took hold because, with no Democrats fighting back, it was the only
story on TV all summer.
Obama ignored it then and he
continued to ignore it until about Labor Day, 2010.
How many House seats
will that 13 month vacation cost us?
And once this election is over, will Obama contuniue the
attacks on the enemy
or will he go back into that deep sleep only to wake up in September of
in time to scold us for standing on the sidelines?
BTW, they say Rahm might leave as early as Friday.
SURELY his replacement will be better, right?
Obama needs someone to tell him the truth and I think
that's his Chief of Staff's job.
Rahm, why are you laughing?
Obama lost 28 approval points working with you.
