President Disaster threatened the GOP today to go along with his radical agenda, or else.
The radical former community organizer is upset that Republicans voted against his latest round of spending bills.
The Hill reported:
President Barack Obama went on the attack against Republicans on Saturday, accusing the GOP of obstructing a litany of his legislative priorities in Congress.
The president struck a decidedly partisan note in his address, castigating Senate Republicans in particular for using their 41-vote bloc to slow down and filibuster a number of pieces of legislation.
“What we need is a willingness in Washington to put the public’s interests first – a willingness to score fewer political points so that we can start solving more problems,” Obama said. “That’s why I was disappointed this week to see a dreary and familiar politics get in the way of our ability to move forward on a series of critical issues that have a direct impact on people’s lives.”
Obama took aim in particular at the Senate’s failure to end debate and pass legislation containing a series of extensions to unemployment benefits, tax credits, and other benefits.
The Senate voted 56-40 on Thursday night to end debate, four short of the 60 senators needed on such a vote. One Democrat, Sen. Ben Nelson (Neb.), joined with the GOP on the vote.
President Obama has a lot of gall to point at Republicans for playing politics.
He hasn’t stopped his campaigning since he entered office.
