President Obama having fun
President Obama appeared at a fundraiser in New York on Monday. He decided to have some fun with the Republican candidates for having a temper tantrum because they did not get the questions they wanted from the CNBC moderators. In effect they wanted softballs. The President called them out in a manner that made them seem rather puny.
“Have you noticed that everyone of these candidates say,” President Obama said. “‘Obama is weak. Putin is kicking sand in his face. When I talk to Putin he is going to straighten out. Just looking at him. He is going to be.’ And then, it turns out they can’t handle a bunch of CNBC moderators.”
Over the years President Obama has reached out incessantly for bipartisanship. Many time he did it at the expense of his own base. He made concessions on Obamacare, the stimulus, and many other policies. He still did not get their support, respect, or votes of the Republicans. He is still attempting bipartisanship. The difference now is he is not lassoing Republicans and trying to pull them in. He is simply leaving the door open. If they so choose, they can step right in.
It is fun watching a President that no longer cares what Republicans or anyone else think about him anymore. He does not have any other election to run. He has accomplished most of his major goals. He simply needs to get the popcorn and a cold drink as he watches the politicians that attempted to bring him down self-destruct.
