Obama's Attitude Is Disgusting
After President Obama’s Monday press conference, is there anyone left in America who thinks this guy has a single bipartisan bone in his body?
In all my years of observing politics, I have never seen a president so inflexible and hyperpartisan. His “my way or the highway” attitude is disgusting. He seems to think that since he won re-election, the Republicans have no voice in anything.
Debt limit? Just shut up and do what I say. If you call me to negotiate, I won’t answer the phone. Default? Your problem.
Here are some news flashes for this president, who seems to think he was elected king rather than president.
First, you are the president of all Americans, not just the 51 percent who voted for you. The job of president is to be the leader of the American government.
Nearly half of all Americans didn’t vote for you, and most Americans want you to work with Congress to find solutions to the problems we face. That takes leadership, and you were elected to provide it.
Second, it’s true that you won re-election. Guess what? A total of 279 Republican senators and congressmen also won their elections in November, and they feel just as strongly about their mandate as you do about yours. Do their voters count less than yours?
The country is fairly evenly split between the parties; it’s not 100 percent Obama supporters, 0 percent others.
Finally, the Republicans may or may not be successful in getting you to stop borrowing 40 percent of what we spend. But one thing is certain: If the Republicans don’t do it, our lenders eventually will, and that will be a lot more painful (think Greece). You can be an adult and do it now, or the markets will do it later.
