Obama: 'Absolutely' No Regrets For Ignoring Economy for First Two Years
Breitbart.com ^ | 10/24/2012 | Joel B. Pollak

The Obama campaign has finally released the transcript of his endorsement interview with the Des Moines Register--and it is clear why they were reluctant to do so: the President says he has "absolutely" no regrets about ignoring the economy during the first two years of his term, when Democrats controlled Congress.

Here is the key part of the exchange:

Q: Yes, that begs a question from us, Mr. President. Some say you had a super majority in your first two years and had this incredible opportunity, but because of what you were talking about, as you were running, you had to go to get Obamacare done. Do you have any regrets taking on some of the economic issues, some of the issues that we're talking about for your second term, that when you had the chance, so to speak, during your first -- do you have any regrets that you didn’t do that at that time?

THE PRESIDENT: Absolutely not, Laura. Remember the context. First of all, Mitch McConnell has imposed an ironclad filibuster from the first day I was in office. And that's not speculation. I mean, this is -- it’s amply recorded. He gave a speech saying, my task is to defeat the President.

So we were able to pass emergency action with the stimulus, but we had to get two votes from Republicans...

Does this surprise anyone? The man had his own agenda and it had nothing to do with America.

Barry and the ‘RATS knew that the first step to a communist America was ObamaCare. It had to come first.

The Republicans could not stop anything.
It is not possible for obama to have regrets.
He is a psychopathy - the have no guilt, shame, people are only tools.
He is narcissist - everything is about them, they can do no wrong.

No surprises! Why would he have regret? This would have been a 'twofer' for Obama; and will; if he steals Election/2012. The Economy irrecoverable - in the tank - and a Government rendering our Constitution 'irrelevant' by way of an 'historical' Government hi-jacking; with Obama's name on it.

We can spell 'Obamacare'. . .but we will not survive it. Per plan; of course.

More misuse of “begs the question”, oh well, I suspect that this will soon be an accepted use.

I remember people saying that Jimmy Carter was “trying” to fix the economy.

It’s not a matter of “trying,” or “paying attention.”

Both Carter and Obama are ideologically opposed to tax rate reduction. Both of them called tax rate reduction “tax cuts for the rich.”

Unbelievable. This makes the “47% comment” look trivial- Obozo is admitting that he simply didn’t care about struggling Americans for two entire years...

This needs to be in an ad.
