Obama's pre-election weekly address: say what?I just don't get it. This is the President's last regular weekly address before Tuesday's election. And he makes a pitch for an impossible bipartisanship on domestic issues? Other than setting the stage for him to embrace Social Security Phaseout when the Catfood Commission makes its recommendations Dec. 1, what is the point of this?
Whatever the outcome on Tuesday, we need to come together to help put people who are still looking for jobs back to work. And there are some practical steps we can take right away to promote growth and encourage businesses to hire and expand. These are steps we all should be able to agree on – not Democratic or Republican ideas, but proposals that have traditionally been supported by both parties. ...He does take a timid shot at the Republicans:
That’s why I found the recent comments by the top two Republican in Congress so troubling. The Republican leader of the House actually said that "this is not the time for compromise." And the Republican leader of the Senate said his main goal after this election is simply to win the next one.Then he goes on to say, "But when the ballots are cast and the voting is done, we need to put this kind of partisanship aside – win, lose, or draw."
I just don't get it. After what we've seen this last two years with the Republicans, I really don't get it.
