Surprise: Obama Uses Weekly Address To Attack Republicans

This. Is. Pathetic. We have a massive crisis regarding illegal aliens, most of which are under the age of 18. He’s just requested $3.7 billion for this crisis. Many of them are gang members and have diseases. And there are plenty more problems occurring. One would think the President Of The United States would cover this. Nope (video here)

Weekly Address: Expanding Opportunity – It’s Time for Congressional Republicans to Do Their Part

Hi, everybody. This week, I spent some time in Colorado and Texas, talking with people about what’s going on in their lives. (and shooting pool, meeting people with horseheads, generally having fun while ignoring the border)

One of them was Elizabeth Cooper, who’ll be a college junior this fall. She wrote to tell me something I hear often: how hard it is for middle-class families like hers to afford college. And she shared something I know many of you feel when you wonder what’s going on in Washington. She said she feels “not significant enough to be addressed, not poor enough for people to worry [about], and not rich enough to be cared about.” (maybe she should ask Senate Democrats who held the Senate open to yammer about “climate change” because a %.01er asked)

I ran for President to fight for Americans just like Elizabeth – people who work hard, do everything right, and just want a chance to build a decent life for themselves and their families. (running is not the same thing as managing)

But while we’ve created more jobs at this point of the year than any year since 1999, too many families barely earn what they did in 1999. It’s harder to pay for college, save, or retire, because people’s wages and incomes have not gone up. Nearly all the gains of the recovery are going to the very top – and aren’t making a difference in your lives. (Democrats had two full years at the beginning of Obama’s first term, as they controlled the House and Senate, and frittered that away. They still control the Senate. What are they doing? What has Obama done other than stoke class warfare? Oh, and attend lots of big donor fundraisers)

Here comes the whining and blamestorming

But so far this year, Republicans in Congress have blocked every serious idea to strengthen the middle class. Lifting the minimum wage, fair pay, student loan reform – they’ve said no to all of it. And that’s when I’ve acted this year to help working Americans on my own– when Congress won’t act.

I’ve taken actions to attract new jobs, lift workers’ wages, help students pay off their loans, and more. And the Republican plan right now is not to do some of this work with me – instead, it’s to sue me. That’s actually what they’re spending their time on. It’s a political stunt that’s going to waste months of America’s time. And by the way, they’re going to pay for it using your hard-earned tax dollars.

I have a better idea: do something, Congress. Do anything to help working Americans. Join the rest of the country. Join me, I’m looking forward to working with you.

This is one of the reasons I refer to him as Not My President (NMP) Obama: the whining and using the office of POTUS for hardcore political attacks. He’s whining about being sued while he acts in a lawless manner. He actually has the cojones to whine about using “hard-earned tax dollars” when he uses those same dollars to travel to fundraiser after fundraiser, along with quite a few golf trips and vacations. Remember, he’s bailing on his job for half of this coming August.

This is a guy whose economic ideas are given on sticky pads and short talking points. A guy whose budgets have consistently been shot down by his own Party. They refused to even bring the most current budget up for a vote. The GOP has passed dozens of economic bills, which languish in the Democrat controlled Senate. Furthermore, while Obama was recording his campaign style, heavily partisan Weekly Address (because he needs some “me time” Saturday, in which he will certainly play yet another round of golf)

And

Sorry, John, Obama doesn’t have it within himself to do the hard work, nor be anything but a hardcore demagogue who demands things his way or no way.

    “Democrats had two full years at the beginning of Obama’s first term, as they controlled the House and Senate, and frittered that away.”

    Note too that because of the arcane Senate rules, a supermajority (60 votes) is needed to move legislation along. The Democrats had that supermajority for a few months in late 2009. The Dems had to make significant concessions in legislation to satisfy conservative Dems and liberal Repubs to pass needed legislation. With Republican cooperation, ARRA, PPACA and Dodd-Frank could have been much more effective.

    The 111th Congress passed several pieces of important legislation including the Fair Pay Act, ARRA, SCHIP ReAuth, Dodd-Frank, Defense ReAuth, PPACA, DADT Repeal in the face of unified Republican opposition.
