Obama Doing His Best to Validate His Critics on the Right

President Obama met first in a meeting open to the press, and then in private, with a group of Senate Democrats, many of whom are sensing that riding Obama’s coat-tails is leading them straight into a political wood-chipper — and for good reason.

But Glenn Reynolds ran across something peculiar that Obama said during the meetings — a possible Freudian Slip for the ages that the right may feel validates the opinion that Obama and the Democrats don’t want the economy to get better, because a healthy economy is anathema to their quest to create a culture of government dependency.

From The Hill:

Lincoln asked Obama if he would be willing to push back against liberals and “look for that common ground that we need to work with Republicans.”

Obama said he would attempt to convince his party’s left wing to take a less ideological approach to economic challenges.

“We’ve got to make sure that our party understands that, like it or not, we have to have a financial system that is healthy and functioning, so we can’t be demonizing every bank out there,” Obama said. “We’ve got to be the party of business, small business and large business, because they produce jobs.”

We need a healthy and functional financial system, like it… or not? Who wouldn’t want a healthy financial system and economy? Don’t answer that.

Obama’s trying hard to make Limbaugh and Beck seem less crazy every day.
