And now, before his upcoming Thursday speech on a jobs bill, our President has a message for the Republicans in Congress.
“We’re going to see if we’ve got some straight-shooters in Congress,” Obama said. “We’re going to see if congressional Republicans will put country before party.”
The president said that the time is now for Washington to work together to deal with the economic crisis, and not spend time on a “manufactured crisis” like the debt-ceiling debate. “The time for Washington games is over,” Obama said.
He thinks it’s a doozy. I wonder, who wrote it. Again we have an instance where this man seems to think he is acting presidential with his tactics.
Tiresome. And hardly seen as mature. He has obviously no intention of working with Republicans. That has been clear for quite some time, and now repeats that mantra.
Oh, President Obama? You’re repeating the need for roads & bridges rework in this message now, yes? It seems you said the purpose of that $787B stimulus was supposed to do exactly that, didn’t you? But where did that money go?
Remember in November 2012.
