President Pound Puppy Whines More In Cleveland

I’m loathe to use the link from The New Republic for the full text of Obama’s yapping, but, hey, it’s the big link at Memeorandum, so, what the hell. Away we go!

Good afternoon, Ohio. It’s good to be back.

Except, the people of Ohio prefer Bush over Obama. Say, where were Sherrod Brown and the other Dem Representatives of Ohio? Can’t find any news stories about any being present.

We also hoped for a chance to get beyond some of the old political divides – between Democrats and Republicans, Red states and Blue states – that had prevented us from making progress. Because although we are proud to be Democrats, we are prouder to be Americans – and we believed that no single party has a monopoly on wisdom.

Now, he certainly wouldn’t get all partisan after saying that, would he?

That’s not to say that the election didn’t expose deep differences between the parties. I ran for President because for much of the last decade, a very specific governing philosophy had reigned about how America should work

Oops. Then we get even more whining and “I’s”. Shocker.

Now, much has happened since that election. The flawed policies and economic weaknesses of the previous decade culminated in the worst recession of our lifetimes. My hope was that the crisis would cause everyone, Democrats and Republicans, to pull together and tackle our problems in a practical way. But as we all know, things didn’t work out that way.

“So, after I get done whining and excoriating at my political opponents, I expect them to work with me.”

That’s what’s happening right now. A few weeks ago, the Republican leader of the House came here to Cleveland and offered his party’s answer to our economic challenges. Now, it would be one thing if he admitted his party’s mistakes during the eight years they were in power, and was offering a credible new approach to solving our country’s problems.

But that’s not what happened. There were no new policies from Mr. Boehner. There were no new ideas. There was just the same philosophy we already tried for the last decade – the same philosophy that led to this mess in the first place: cut more taxes for millionaires and cut more rules for corporations. Instead of coming together like past generations did to build a better country for our children and grandchildren, their argument is that we should let insurance companies go back to denying care to folks who are sick, and let credit card companies go back to raising rates without any reason. Instead of setting our sights higher, they’re asking us to settle for a status quo of stagnant growth, eroding competitiveness, and a shrinking middle class.

“Coming together” means “do it my way, or I’ll blow my nose in your general direction.” And more I, I, I.

That’s what we Democrats believe in – a vibrant free market, but one that works for everybody. That’s our vision for a stronger economy and a growing middle-class. And that’s the difference between what we and the Republicans in Congress are offering the American people right now.

I know it’s juvenile, but, ROTFLOL! “Dems believe in free market.” Oh, wait, he put a disclaimer on it. Then more whining. More complaining about Boehner and Republicans. Jeez, Barry, Man Up. Grow a pair. Act like the POTUS, instead of a whining 3 year old told he can’t have ice cream and a toy.

(And, yeah, I know some people will whine about the picture being raaaaacist. They can get over themselves. Just imagine if I had asked the Surrender Monkey to take a break from his well deserved retirement. (PS: I have used the SM for mostly whites, and have included Bush and other Republicans at times))

    Obama is the most whining president on record ever. And that record I have goes back 30 years. He is also the most liberal and most black president ever. And I have data for the last 30 years that backs my facts up.

    So, if the Bush’s policies got us in this mess, then how come it was his SH**STORM that actually caused the massive unemployment and delayed recovery. Many places in Europe are already recovering and they didn’t do a dang thing to “fix” their economy.

    Sen Boener is right, we need to slash our budget and cut taxes. But, I would go much farther than he. I would go back to pre-2000 levels. And then cut Federal welfare and subsidies to zero.
