Obama’s Been Into The Kool-Aid Again

Obama’s Been Into The Kool-Aid Again

Says We’re Better Off Now Than Four Years Ago - Thanks To Him!

By Dell Hill

Do you think we’re better off today than we were four years ago?

If you do, you really should seek professional help.

Of course, your President thinks you’re better off....Just watch and listen.

“Well, you know, I think we are better off now than we would have been if I hadn’t taken all the steps that we took. I don’t think the country is stronger yet then it was when the economy was still booming and we didn’t have Wall Street crisis, and we didn’t have the housing bubble burst. But, we’ve made steady progress, we just need to make more.”

The Hill asked John Boehner to comment, and let’s just say that Obama’s remarks caught him by surprise:

“Are you kidding me?!” Boehner said loudly in response to a reporter’s question on the comment. “Why don’t you go ask the 14 million Americans who are out of work whether they’re better off today than they were four years ago?” …

Boehner spoke to reporters after a conference meeting in which he rallied House Republicans around the message that while the lower chamber is taking action on jobs legislation, the Senate is dithering and the president is campaigning.

Citing the so-called “Forgotten 15” House-passed bipartisan bills that have been shelved in the Senate, Boehner told his conference, according to a source in the room: “These jobs bills are stuck in the Senate because we have a president who is disengaged from the legislative process. Instead of engaging in the legislative process, the president has been campaigning. If the president would get more engaged and call on the Senate to get moving, there’s a lot more we could get done this year on jobs for the American people.”

I can’t wait to hear this quote brought up in a presidential debate!
UPDATE:  We're "better off" all except for....
