From Powerline, quoting Obama:
The private sector is doing fine. Where we’re seeing weaknesses in our economy have to do with state and local government. Oftentimes cuts initiated by, you know, Governors or mayors who are not getting the kind of help that they have in the past from the federal government and who don’t have the same kind of flexibility as the federal government in dealing with fewer revenues coming in.
And so, you know, if Republicans want to be helpful, if they really want to move forward and put people back to work, what they should be thinking about is how do we help state and local governments…
Three days ago the voters of Wisconsin rejected the notion that the people should pony up ever more so that government be flush with cash…and now Obama is asserting that if the GOP wants to be helpful, the way to do it is to get the people to pony up ever more so government can b flush with cash! This goes beyond stupid – this is an egregious rejection of basic reality. Whatever else the people might want, more government isn’t it.
If we can’t beat Obama, now, then we might as well close up shop for good. He’s just proven himself to be completely out of touch and in opposition to the direction Americans want to go.
