Take a look at what Obama said last night during a rally for Senate Majority Leader Reid in Las Vegas. Is this really, I ask you, what Republicans thought back in 2008?
The Republican leaders in Washington, they made a different decision. Here’s the thing, they realized what a big mess they had made. They said, boy, we screwed up so bad, it is going to take a really long time to recover those 8 million jobs that were lost. It’s going to take a long time before the housing market fully recovers. So our best bet, instead of trying to help Obama and Harry Reid to solve problems, we’re going to stand on the sidelines, sit on our hands, and basically just say no to everything.
THE PRESIDENT: Their theory was, people will forget that we were the ones who caused all this stuff, and we’ll be able to blame them, and people will be so angry and frustrated that we’ll be able to ride this anger all the way to the ballot box. That was their theory.
In other words, they are basically betting on all of you having amnesia. (Laughter.) They’re basically — they’re banking on the fact that you might forget who got us in this mess in the first place.
It’s already bad that we have a man who is supposed to be the leader of us all playing the role instead of a hyper-partisan pol in order to maintain his power. But it’s just as bad to have a president who is JUST PLAIN SILLY.
