Andy Warhol once said that someday everyone will have fame for 15 minutes. Barack Obama’s version seems to be that everyone will get blamed for 15 minutes. After Bush, tsunamis, earthquakes, Greeks bearing debts and Tea Parties, the Scapegoater-in-Chief pointed his nicotine-stained fingers at the Congress his party half controls.
Make no mistake, Obama isn't upset with all of Congress
We get the story from Commentary Magazine:
President Obama blasted Congress from the road on Thursday, saying things would be worse if lawmakers returned to Washington.
“From the road” reminds us of the punk kid who used to call us names from inside his house.
“There is nothing wrong with our country,” Obama said in a speech at a Holland, Mich., plant. “There is something wrong with our politics.”
Sure, and that something is Barack Obama.
Obama did not single out Republicans or Democrats, but blasted Congress for what he said had been “the worst part of partisanship, the worst part of gridlock.”
The White House is the better part of the partisanship and gridlock.
“There are some in Congress right now who would rather see their opponents lose than America win,” Obama said. “And that’s got to stop.”
Straw men take cover, false choices incoming!
“That’s why people are frustrated,” Obama said. “Maybe you hear it in my voice. It’s why I’m frustrated. Because you deserve better.”
Barry’s frustrated because he’s not getting his way. We’re frustrated because he won’t get out of the way.
Deserve better you do, but unfortunately Obama’s president until January 2013 unless Congress can overcome stupid partisanship and gridlock and get rid of him.
