Obama met with his cabinet Tuesday and encouraged them and their respective agencies to get “creative” as they use bureaucratic fiat to circumvent Congress.
“What I’m gong to be urging all of you to do and what I’m going to be continually pushing throughout this year and for the next couple of years, is that if Congress can’t act on core issues that would actually make a difference in helping middle class families get ahead, then we’re going to have to be creative about how we can make real progress.”
Talking about House Republicans, Obama said, “They’ve said no to raising the minimum wage, they’ve said no to immigration reform, has said no to equal pay legislation.” The caimpgner-in-Chief then reverted back to his dry 1% talking points saying, “The only thing they seem to say yes to, the Republicans in the House at least, is more tax breaks for the folks at the top.”
“We’re not always going to be able to get things through Congress, at least this Congress. But we sure as heck can make sure that the folks back home know that we’re pushing their agenda,” continued
The Democrats are toast and Obama knows it. And that’s why he’s making a huge effort to show that he cares. Obama’s populist “we’re working hard on your behalf” rhetoric won’t save him and his party from the coming tsunami in November.
But it is fun to watch him squirm.
