Here are a few more great lines from President Obama’s speech in Austin last night. All so, so true (not that you’ll ever hear about the truth on Faux “News” or whatever)!
*”Now, I don’t know which things they find most offensive – me helping to create jobs, or me raising wages, or me easing the student loan burdens, or me making sure women can find out whether they’re getting paid the same as men for doing the same job. I don’t know which of these actions really bug them.”
*The truth is, even with all the actions I’ve taken this year, I’m issuing executive orders at the lowest rate in more than 100 years. So it’s not clear how it is that Republicans didn’t seem to mind when President Bush took more executive actions than I did. Maybe it’s just me they don’t like. I don’t know. Maybe there’s some principle out there that I haven’t discerned, that I haven’t figure out. You hear some of them – ‘sue him,’ ‘impeach him.’ Really? Really? For what? You’re going to sue me for doing my job? Okay.”
*”Sometimes, I feel like saying to these guys, ‘I’m the guy doing my job, you must be the other guy.'”
