(Reuters) – President Barack Obama, still smarting from his Democrats’ big losses in congressional elections, said on Friday the United States cannot afford to get mired in legislative gridlock for the next two years while countries like China forge ahead.
Three days after voters punished Obama’s party for the weak economy, he called for “putting politics aside” as he struck a conciliatory tone with victorious Republicans, saying he was open to hearing their ideas for tackling stubbornly high unemployment. (Editor’s Note: BWWWAAAAHHHHHH!)
Obama now faces a threat by Republican leaders to try to roll back his signature policies, including a healthcare overhaul and Wall Street reform, and to block his agenda for the rest of his term.
“We can’t spend the next two years mired in gridlock. Other countries like China aren’t standing still so we can’t stand still either. We’ve got to move forward,” Obama told reporters before departing on a 10-day Asia tour.
I have a novel idea for you, Barack. When the House and Senate pass constitutionally written bills that are supported by The American People, such as repealing Obamacare, FinReg, auditing the Fed, abolish-ion of the Fed and IRS, yada, yada, yada….
Shut The Fuck Up And Sign It!
We no longer have the luxury of debating the merits of social justice and redistribution of the wealth that has been shipped overseas; the economic clock has run out (as Ben can attest with his trillions of dollars of fake money).
100 years of ponzi scheme, bullshit legislation has finally caught up with us.
No more gridlock.
We actually do know best.
When do the bankers’ arrests start again?
