The press really wants to say that Barack Obama is moving to the middle, to which we say: get real.
"I said,'You want to repeal health care? Go at it. We'll have that debate. You're not going to be able to do that by nickel-and-diming me in the budget. You think we're stupid?'" recalled the president of his closed-door negotiations on the bill to fund the federal government until September.
Perhaps the most news-worthy part of this story is that the quotes came from Obama talking to a group of donors not realizing his comments were still being broadcast to the press.
Is it us or is Obama one smarmy, cocksure Mother when he is talking to donors in what he thinks is an off-the-record setting? The more Americans get to see of this off-the-record, religion-and-gun-clinging fulsome fraud, the lower his poll numbers will fall.
