I know that's not a good visual for Monday morning but after seeing him trying to explain away the massive caves of the administration this morning - that is really and truly how I feel.
You remember David....the guy who said the American People wouldn't care about the unemployment numbers when it came to elections.
This morning's comments are not really any better:
He conceded that the process had "been messy," and said he believes the American people "obviously would like a little bit more compromise and a little less shouting."
No David, the American people would like a president who would at least pretend to be negotiating on their behalf and not cave at the first sign of push back from the lunatics.
On taxes, Plouffe noted that a newly constituted bipartisan congressional panel will "look at tax reform, entitlement reform," as part of a continuing effort to reduce the deficit.
Yes, Catfood Commission II will save all our problems and we can all go back to finding good deals on tents that will be big enough to include Grandma as the nursing home she was in closed because of all this very serious "deficit reduction".
Is this all in preparation for a future unemployment rate of 40% since your administration has done nothing to raise the issue of the increasing outflow of jobs from this country?? Seemed like that was part of his campaign way back when, ya know - he wanted to get elected. David, you do realize that if he pulls that out again during his campaign that it won't work since we saw how much time he paid to that issue this time?
And finally, the thing that really aggravated my gag reflex:
And he said the White House was not worried by lawmakers' criticisms of the pact.
Or apparently, the rest of his party. Go away David - just please go away.
