By now, it’s certainly no secret that the Republican party has – since day one – made it their mission to do everything in their power to ensure limited success of the Obama presidency.
Their strategy from the get was as nefarious as it was simple. In the words of Ohio Senator George Voinovich;
“If (Obama) was for it, we had to be against it.”
Clearly, the President has finally had enough. In his weekly You Tube address to the nation, titled “Expanding Opportunity — It’s Time for Congressional Republicans to Do Their Part,” the President reaffirmed his commitment to supporting a robust middle class, pointing out that – despite GOP obstructionism – his policies have created nearly 10 million news jobs.
He then proceeded to destroy Republican members of congress for blocking “every serious idea,” to make the economy stronger, and ridiculed the pure theater of Republican House Speaker Boehner’s plan to sue him;
“Lifting the minimum wage, fair pay, student loan reform – (the GOP has) said no to all of it… the Republican plan right now is not to do some of this work with me – instead its to sue me. That’s actually what they’re spending their time on. It’s a political stunt that’s going to waste months of America’s time. And by the way, they’re going to pay for it using your hard-earned tax dollars. I have a better idea – DO SOMETHING, CONGRESS. Do ANYTHING to help working Americans…“
