Obama, Elizabeth Warren rally Boston faithful with populist pitch
June 25, 2012|By Michael A. Memoli

BOSTON – President Obama joined forces with Elizabeth Warren in making a populist pitch before the party faithful at a fundraiser here, saying voters will decide this fall whether to return to policies that benefit a wealthy few or invest in an economy focused on building a more prosperous middle class.

**SNIP**

“I don’t believe that government can solve every problem,” he said. But he quoted Abraham Lincoln, the first Republican president, as saying that government should do what individuals cannot do well by themselves.

“There’s nothing radical about that vision. That’s the vision that built this country,” he said.

Obama said he was confident that a majority of Americans agreed with his vision, even some Republicans, he offered, though they “just can’t admit it now.” But he warned of the spending to come by Republicans and outside groups, more than in any election in history.

“Even if they buy what the other side is selling, it’s hard in this environment. Sometimes people feel discouraged. Cynicism creeps in. And the other side, they feed on it,” he said.

Obama speaking of needing a Billion Dollars for this campaign and then warning that Republicans will be spending a lot.

By the way who is paying for the fuel on Air Force One that is constantly transporting this mass of useless fecal matter around the country to campaign efforts every day?
