The unmitigated chutzpah here is so blinding that I don’t just need sunglasses to protect my eyes. I need blackout curtains. Watch President Obama blame Congress for Demcare bribery and sabotage of transparency. As if Rahm and all the senior goons in the White House weren’t twisting arms and cracking heads to ensure that the deal met their boss’s timeline. As if the Cadillac tax break for unions hadn’t been hashed out at 1600 Pennsylvania.
“I think that this gets into a big mush. So, let’s just clarify: I didn’t make a bunch of deals. There is a legislative process that is taking place in Congress and I am happy to own up to the fact that I have not changed Congress and how it operates the way I would have liked. So, that’s point number one. Number two is that, I think, it is important to know that the promises we made about increased transparency we’ve executed here in 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.”
“Big mush” indeed.
Of course, if he means “executed” in the homicidal sense as opposed to the operational sense, he’s perfectly right…
