How many people can President Obama fit under that “Titanic on Wheels” called a bus caravan he’s leading across the mid-west in starting tomorrow? So far the underside capacity of the Obama Greyhound (“leave the blaming to us”) seems limitless, because he just threw all congressional Democrats under the bus and there’s still plenty of room remaining:
Obama tried to position himself on the side of the public and against a deeply unpopular Congress. But even though Obama’s approval ratings aren’t so good either, he clearly sees a need to direct the public’s anger toward Congress or risk being the target himself as the 2012 campaign revs up.
“You’ve got a right to be frustrated,” the president said. “I am. Because you deserve better. I don’t think it’s too much for you to expect that the people you send to this town start delivering.”
“Members of Congress are at home in their districts right now. And if you agree with me — whether you’re a Democrat or a Republican or not much of a fan of either — let them know.”
Blame everybody else — what a bold strategy. Whenever Obama speaks of problem solving, that simply means he’s found somebody to blame for any number of his administration’s failings — problem solved!
In the first two years of his presidency, Obama led the effort to shove all his unpopular, intrusive, expensive and incompetent schemes down the throat of America via his Democrat majority in Congress, and now that everything has backfired like the motor on a poorly maintained 1972 Buick Skylark, Obama is jumping on the side of taxpayers to rally anger at Repubs and Dems in Congress. How’s the weather under the bus, Dems?
The ship is foundering, “women and children first” has been called, and the “Captain” is blaming his crew, putting on a dress and wig, grabbing a random child and heading for the lifeboats… all while calling it “leadership.”
