Off-teleprompter, the President is nothing if not a disaster, and this morning in Ohio, fresh off another heartbreaking jobs report for the American people, Obama attempted to wax eloquent to a small group about the beauty of the middle class and how he is its savior. According to Obama, it was his desire to save the middle class that drove him to get into politics and run for the State Senate in Chicago.
Suuuure.... we believe ya
The reason I ran for president, the reason I ran the first time for a State Senate seat on the Southside of Chicago, was because for too many people, that bargain, that dream, felt like it was slipping away. We had gone through a decade where people were working harder and harder, but we didn’t see an increase in income. And profits were going sky high for a lot of companies but jobs weren't growing fast enough. And the cost of everything from health care to college tuition to grocery to gas kept going up faster than people's incomes.
So a lot of folks felt like that idea that we could not only live a good middle class life but more importantly we could pass it on to our kids and they could succeed the way we might not have imagined. They could go to college and do some things we couldn’t imagine doing. That felt like it was slipping away from too many people. That's why I got into politics.
That speech was terrible.
Who wrote that garbage. This is just sad. Obama takes responsibility for nothing.
He should quit right now. Let Hillary take over. This is hopeless.
