Most divisive president ever

Sampling from his new stump speech:

Think about it. Think about it. This is not a situation in which the Republicans — after everything that they did to take record surpluses into record deficits, after all the failed policies that resulted ultimately in the worst recession since the 1930s, it’s not as if they went back and they said, you know what, let’s reflect on what we did wrong. (Laughter.) You know, obviously, there were some problems there, let’s see if we’ve got a different set of theories about how we should approach the economy, and how we should look after the middle class.

I mean that would be one thing if they had kind of gone off in the wilderness, they meditated. (Laughter.) They came back, they said, we’ve learned from our mistakes. We’ve got a whole new set of approaches — a whole new set of policies. But they’re not saying that.

They have not come up with a single, solitary idea that is any different from the policies of George W. Bush, the policies that they had in place for eight years before we had a crisis. (Applause.) What they are betting on is amnesia. (Laughter.) They are betting that you don’t remember that they were in charge all this time. (Applause.) I think Pat may have mentioned to you, they’re trying to get you to forget that they drove the car into the ditch. (Laughter.)

And after we’ve pushed it out, now they’re saying, “Give us the keys back.” (Laughter.) But we don’t — we haven’t forgotten, because we’ve got mud on our shoes, our back is sore from pushing that car out of the ditch. (Applause.) I mean, if they want to get in the back seat, that’s okay. (Laughter.) But we’re not going to put them behind the wheel. (Laughter.)

And then he goes on with his stupid little "D" and "R" metaphor.

Get in the back seat.

Fuck you Obama.

His stump speech completely ignores the utter failure of his current policies.

This data confirms once again that the $862 billion Obama stimulus legislation — as well as all the subsequent budget-busting legislation Congress has enacted under the rubric of “jobs” bills — has failed, as expected.

The weak jobs data also mean the Obama jobs deficit — the difference between current employment and the jobs Obama promised to create by the end of 2010 — now stands at 7.6 million workers. That’s 7.6 million fellow citizens who were promised jobs if Obama was elected and his economic program instituted, and who are still out of work. Unfortunately, continued weakness in the economy indicates they will continue to be out of work for months to come, perhaps as long as Obama adheres to his ideology instead of opting for proven solutions.

If only Obama had the good sense to shift right, as Clinton did. But, he’s a president possessed.
