Obama Urges Voters to Scold Republicans ~ More Bashing From Obama

Obama says he is frustrated with Congress

Obama toured a battery-maker in Holland, Mich., where he expressed exasperation with Congressional Republicans.

Obama Urges Voters to Scold Republicans

The New York Times


In the seven days since Standard & Poor’s downgraded the country’s credit rating, political observers and frustrated Americans alike have asked this same question: Why doesn’t President Obama haul lawmakers back to Washington to deal with the worsening economic woes?

On Thursday, Mr. Obama gave his answer. “The last thing we need is Congress spending more time arguing in D.C.,” he said in an angry speech before workers and executives at a battery plant here.

Rather, the president said, echoing what his aides have been saying privately for days, “What I figure is, they need to spend more time out here, listening to you, and hearing how fed up you are.”

It is a sign, perhaps, of the White House’s desperate search for a way forward that Mr. Obama is hoping that American voters — who are deeply disgusted with Congress, but not exactly thrilled with him either, according to recent polls — will somehow rise en masse and make their representatives see the error of their ways.

“If they’re listening hard enough,” he said, “maybe they’ll come back ready to compromise, ready to do what you sent them there to do.”

Wild Thing's comment......

Urging the voters to chide the Republicans? How about the voters kick his butt!

The Liar-In-Chief seems to believe that compromise only goes one direction. The GOP must come to their senses and compromise with the RAT party. The RAT party is never asked to compromise with the GOP. Reid wouldn’t even let the CUT, CAP, and BALANCE come to a vote.

The clueless bloke is still a community organizer.

In or out of the White House, that is the extent of his capability.

With Obama, it's always someone elses fault.

He's right when he says that the last thing we need is more argument. It is time to get down to the business of turning this thing around.

This self centered A-Hole will never see that it is he that is the root of the problem. At this point he is beginning to preach to the choir on this issue.

His approval ratings a dropping like lead , and yet he seems to think that he can force the issue based upon his charismatic personality, alone.

Up to this point, he has been able to push his agenda without too much argument, due to a compliant Congress.

Now the American people are starting to realize that the Change that Obama was thinking about, is not the same as the one, that they thought they were voting for. He has stepped over the line and for the first time in his Administration he is on the defensive.

No amount of rhetoric or quote from synchophant taliking heads like Axelrod can save his sorry butt now.

He needs to start acting like a chief executive, something that many of us think,he is totally unable to do.

The suit has been exposed for what he is, a Charlatan
