Skip to comments.Obama: We'll Get Things Done When The Republican “Fever” Breaks
Posted on 06/01/2012 5:34:56 PM PDT by SteelToe
President Barack Obama says he'll fulfill his campaign promises once he wins, because Republicans won't be obsessed with beating him.
President Barack Obama cited a Republican "fever" as the reason why he hasn't been able to make progress on deficit reduction or immigration reform at a Minneapolis fundraiser today.
The remarks are one of Obama's sharpest Republican critiques equating their recent activism with illness and are sure to draw condemnation from the right.
From the pool report:
Most of the talk was standard campaign speech, but the president did say he hopes that Republicans will be more cooperative after he wins reelection.
"It will be coming to a head in this election. We're going to have as stark a contrast as we've seen in a very long time between the two candidates. 2008 was a significant election, obviously. But John McCain believed in climate change. John believed in campaign finance reform. He believed in immigration reform. There were some areas where you saw some overlap." "In this election, the Republican Party has moved in a fundamentally different direction. The center of gravity for their party has shifted."
He talked of deficit reduction and said "we couldn't' get them to take yes for an answer."

How imaginative. Good luck with that strategy, Obozo.
If the Republicans are not more co-operative they will be sent to the gulag
What an idiot.
He's crazy with this ideology.
It is mother's milk to him...he'll never see that it is a failure!
That's the kool-aid...that's the pod person abduction.
He's been brainwashed...he'll never see the light!
Liar-in-Chief ping. Thanks SteelToe.
Obama Administration = Government on Bath Salts
I’m waiting for him break down in tears and swear that if we won’t leave him he’ll never lay a hand on us again.
Such a drama queen.
This punk is completely incompetent.
Keep ‘em coming, asshat.
Sheriff thought he could just print the money to cut the deficit in half.
Why oh why have top conservative voices not been screaming off the roof tops about the fact that in 06 the Marxist had control of the country???
If Republicans are a fever, Obama and the Democrats are full-blown AIDS.
Demo activism = good
Repub activism = bad
Is this what the "news" media is going to run with now? I thought it was all about Bain?
Friggin’ whining lightweight....this “experiment” can’t end soon enough.
You beat me to the cowbell!
"I'll have more flexibility then."
