This just substantiates the fact that Obama is an ideologue. He may have a surprise coming if the Republicans take both the House and Senate. The tables may turn and he may be the one that has to get along. He forgets one thing, even tho he’d like to be a Dictator……he’s NOT one.
Obama: Republicans Will Have to Learn to Get Along With Me
President Obama reveals in a magazine article that he is weighing what to do if Republicans win the House majority next month, and has come up with a novel approach: Make the GOP work with him.
In a seeming twist on the post-1994 midterm calculation made by President Bill Clinton — when Republicans pummeled Democrats in the congressional election — Obama said he thinks Republicans will have to move in his direction no matter the outcome of the Nov. 2 vote. (What? When the polls show his approval ratings at an all time low, Republicans will have to move in his direction? What is wrong with this man? Is he that much out of touch or is he that arrogant to think such a thing?)
“It may be that regardless of what happens after this election, they feel more responsible,” he is quoted saying in the Sunday edition of The New York Times Magazine, “either because they didn’t do as well as they anticipated, and so the strategy of just saying no to everything and sitting on the sidelines and throwing bombs didn’t work for them, or they did reasonably well, in which case the American people are going to be looking to them to offer serious proposals and work with me in a serious way.”
Accusing the public of mistaking his abilities, the president also told the magazine that he’s a little taken aback that voters are disappointed with the current turn of events in his administration. (A little taken back? Does this man not understand if he ran for re-election in November 2010 he’d be defeated handily?)
Obama said he also realized too late that “there is no such thing as shovel-ready projects,” a familiar refrain made by the president when he was trying to sell the stimulus package.
“There are almost 100 shovel-ready transportation projects already approved,” he said in August 2009. As recently as July of this year, he said, “Shovels will soon be moving earth and trucks will soon be pouring concrete.”
