Yesterday our Nation's Impostor in Chief declared that if the republicans should take back control of Congress it would mean hand to hand combat. Following are excerpts as reported in the Los Angeles Times.
Note that even though The One has been in the saddle for nearly two years now he continues to sing the refrain everything is Bush's fault. Even though democrats have controlled Congress and the purse strings for the last six years. I guess that would mean the entire second term of GWB as well as the first two years of the current administration.
Reporting from Washington —
A Republican majority in Congress would mean "hand-to-hand combat" on Capitol Hill for the next two years, threatening policies Democrats have enacted to stabilize the economy, President Obama warned Wednesday.
Days before the release of a key jobs report, Obama said most of the job losses his administration gets blamed for occurred before "any of my economic plans were put into place," and that the country is still "experiencing the hangover from the misguided policies" of the last decade.
Obama said a big voter turnout was vital, both to counter millions of dollars being spent by outside groups and the enthusiasm Republicans have demonstrated.
"They are fired up. They are mobilized. They see an opportunity to take back the House, maybe take back the Senate," he said. "If they're successful in doing that, they've already said they're going to go back to the same policies that were in place during the Bush administration. That means that we are going to have just hand-to-hand combat up here on Capitol Hill."
Given the track record of the democratic congress that has resulted in huge annual deficits and and a staggering increase in the national debt since The One has steered the ship of state methinks it is time the reins of Congress are turned over to different leadership.
As to The One's call to hand to and combat should the Congress (and perhaps Senate) flip. I can only imagine the outcry that would have been heard from the progressive collectivist left had GWB made such a statement.
