Ladies and gentlemen: the Tantrum-Thrower-in-Chief.
President Obama told attendees at a high-dollar Manhattan fundraiser Wednesday night that the Democratic Party would be in better shape if he “could just get a million surplus votes in Brooklyn” and move them to Nebraska, where Tea Party conservatives scored a major win in Tuesday’s primary.
Complaining that he had a “drawerful” of things left to do, the president said he had been stymied because “Washington doesn’t work…”
Obama made the comments at the second of two New York City fundraisers Wednesday, held at the Manhattan home of investment banker Blair Effron. Supporters paid $32,400 to attend the event, which benefitted the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee.
How much do people pay you to hang out with them? Sounds like Washington is working just fine. For Washington. As always.
And to entertain his One-Percenter guests, Obama told his favorite bedtime story. Good King Barry was wise and just and fair, and nothing was ever his fault, and the evil Republicans ruined everything for him, and it wasn’t fair, and IT WASN’T FAIR.
Then Obama and all his rich friends consoled themselves with this fantasy and drifted off to a gentle sleep in their luxurious beds.
No need to worry about November, Dems. No matter what happens, none of it will be your fault.
