It appears Obama is feeling a little cockie today. We’ll have to knock him back down a peg or two when he tries to ram thru his immigration bill. Then see how much he crows.
In an apparent attempt to rub Republicans’ noses in their defeat on the debt ceiling conflict, President Barack Obama said Thursday that they should “win an election” if they want to change his policies.
“To all my friends in Congress, understand that how business is done in this town has to change,” Obama said in a statement to reporters at the White House.
“You don’t like a particular policy or a particular president? Then argue for your position. Go out there and win an election. But don’t break it.”
Obama said members of congress aren’t listening to the public.
“Stop focusing on the lobbyists and the bloggers and the talking heads on radio and the professional activists who profit from conflict, and focus on what the majority of Americans sent us here to do, and that’s grow this economy,” Obama said.
He didn’t leave his criticism of Republicans at that.
“We hear some members who pushed for the shutdown say they were doing it to save the American economy,” Obama said.
