Via Bloomberg, speaking on US slow economic growth, Barack OBomba said:
“Europe is having a significant crisis in part because they haven’t taken as many of the decisive steps as were needed to deal with the challenge, and that’s weakening Asia and that means it’s harder for our exports,” he told supporters at the Bachelor Farmer Restaurant in Minneapolis.
During that event, the president blamed Republicans in Congress for legislative gridlock on issues from funding highway construction to taxes, saying they have been exclusively focusing on the goal of defeating him in November. He urged supporters to work for his re-election so that the partisan “fever” gripping Washington can be broken.
“I believe that, if we’re successful in this election, when we’re successful in this election, that the fever may break, because there’s a tradition in the Republican Party of more common sense than that,” Obama told approximately 100 people who paid $5,000 each to attend the event, the first of three in Minnesota.” (my emphasis)
Will his re-election break ‘partisan fever’? Or do ya reckon it’s gonna take… More Cowbell?
