Obama: We'll Get Things Done When The Republican “Fever” Breaks
BuzzFeed ^ | June 1, 2012 | Zeke Miller

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."

So blame all the country's economic ills on the House.

How imaginative. Good luck with that strategy, Obozo.

He's insane. He has the Marxist fever...got it as a baby.

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!

Sheriff thought he could just print the money to cut the deficit in half.

Demo activism = good

Is this what the "news" media is going to run with now? I thought it was all about Bain?

Over at DU no doubt they’re all saying:

“Yeah, Obama was reducing that deficit like gangbusters when Pelosi was Speaker- and passed terrific immigration reform too!”

TOTUS knows the IQ level of his audience...

nobama has some real twisted souls working for him to come up with something like this.

First it was blame Bush. That got tired and worn out. Now he blames his woes on a bunch of feverish Republicans. How hilarious!

Yeah, you could resign the office tomorrow to address health issues stemming from a full-blown case of AIDS and everyone opposed to you would still spend the rest of their days trying to beat you. You're that wrong.

I think Obozo is toast come November. A couple die-hard Dims I know have been despondent lately, and they both said that it is inevitable that Obozo will lose. And both of them blame — get this! — Pelosi and Reid!!! They both said that Pelosi and Reid sabotaged Obozo and cut him off at the knees!!!

"Republican fever" goes back to at least 1789. If it's standing in the way of him "getting things done", then it's working as designed.

Obama is already so irrelevant that even the Dems in Congress are ignoring him. Assuming by some miracle that he wins a second term, he’ll likely face both a House and Senate controlled by Republicans. Other than rule by illegal executive order, a second Obama term will be pointless (which in this case is a GOOD thing.)

Isn't the purpose of a fever to fight off an invading pathogen? Looks like Zero chose an excellent metaphor, though not for the reason he thinks.

It is sad that so many of the ignorant Zer0 supporters believe that Congress is holding this nation’s economy down. It is the cabal of the DemonRAT Senate that is holding effective Congressional legislation down. And, Zer0 has not yet put in writing a budget.
