The President Slams Republicans (In His Gentlemanly Way)

President Obama Speaks on the Economy

We know from our history that our economy does not grow from the top down [i.e., ‘trickle down’ doesn’t work], it grows from the middle out. We do better when the middle class does better. We do better when workers are getting a decent salary. We do better when they’ve got decent benefits. We do better when a young family knows they can get ahead…. That’s when things hum.

With just a few changes we could get a lot done right now if Congress would think about you, and not about getting re-elected, not about the next election, not about some media sound bite, but just focus on you….

My message to Republicans is, Join us. Get on board. If you’re mad at me for helping people on my own, they why don’t you join me? And we’ll go it together. We’ll do it together. I’m happy to share the credit.
