Obama: 'If [Republicans] Want Me to Walk the Dog or Wash Their Car, I'm Happy to Do It'

Obama: 'If [Republicans] Want Me to Walk the Dog or Wash Their Car, I'm Happy to Do It' SEP 17, 2012 • BY DANIEL HALPER In remarks earlier today in Cincinnati, Ohio, President Obama presented himself as willing "to work with [Republicans] to reduce the deficit." Indeed, the president stressed he was so commited to helping Republicans that he'd even "walk the dog or wash their car."

THE PRESIDENT: But they can't tell you how they're going to pay for it. And the truth is they can't pay for it without raising taxes on middle-class families.

But then, on top of that, they want to spend another $2 trillion in new military spending, they say, without adding to the deficit. But they don't tell you how they're going to do that. The only thing they can do is to keep trying to bluff their way through until November and hope that you won’t call them on it.

But understand, Cincinnati -- look, I want to work with them to reduce the deficit. I've said if the Republicans need more love -- (laughter) -- if they want me to walk the dog or wash their car, I'm happy to do it. (Laughter.) And I genuinely believe that most Americans -- Democrats or Republicans -- they just want us to solve problems. (Applause.)

No, thanks. He’d probably key the finish on the car and eat the dog.

Maybe when he’s capable enough of coloring inside the lines with crayons he’ll be able to possibly maybe be capable of being in the same room with a dog.
Until then, he’d better stick to eating paste and cutting up construction paper with ridiculously oversized scissors.

I would not trust him to be able to wash the dog sheet out of my dog kennels, much less walk one.

Now of course, if he wants to lay a trail for a couple...I’m all in for that.

Even when taken figuratively this does not make sense. But I do sense another dose of condescension.

On the comments there were some funny comments...

He’s not qualified to walk dogs.
If he walks the dog, it will end up on his plate.

No, we just want you to walk your ass out of the White House. And take monster butt and your spawn with you.

Why is it that only Republican’s have to “pay for it”? Obama, Pelosi and Reid ran up the National Debt faster than anybody by “not paying for it.”

His comments are nonsense - which is why I believe he’s up to something that we’ll see unfold shortly.

IT’s good that he has some skills. I wouldn’t want him to starve to death in 2013.

"if they want me to walk the dog or wash their car, I'm happy to do it."

I think he meant "wok their dog or crush their car."
