'Beholden to One Extreme Wing'
The president blames the political minority in advance.
Barack Obama spoke about the looming budget and debt ceiling battle, returning to his usual blame-shifting antics: “After all that we’ve been through these past five years, after all the work Americans like those standing behind me have done to come back from the depths of a crisis, are some of these folks [Republicans] really so beholden to one extreme wing of their party that they’re willing to tank the entire economy just because they can’t get their way on this issue? Are they really willing to hurt people just to score political points? I hope not.”
No, it’s Obama who’s willing to hurt people just to score political points. His “stimulus” was nothing more than a goodie bag for his ideological allies, and the tens of millions of Americans still out of work – millions not even bothering to look any longer – can attest to the hurt he’s caused.
