Oh, this is rich. The hapless President Obusha fired a blistering attack at his liberal base (the voters who helped sweep him into office) yesterday during a fund-raising stop in Philadelphia with a patronizing attack suggesting his critics are nothing more than whining, insolent children.
“When I hear Democrats griping and groaning and saying … ‘the health care plan didn’t have a public option’, and … ‘the financial reform — there was a provision here that I think we should have gotten better’, or, ‘you know what, yes, you ended the war in Iraq, the combat mission there, but you haven’t completely finished the Afghan war yet’, this or that or the other, I say ‘folks, wake up’.This is not some academic exercise. As Joe Biden put it, don’t compare us to the Almighty; compare us to the alternative.”
How telling that Obusha would attack his liberal base but not ask the Congress to pass the Defense Authorization Bill to which the DADT repeal measure is attached. The DADT vote is scheduled for Tuesday afternoon.
