Obama says Republicans want to ‘bamboozle’ voters this November

President Obama told Democratic fundraisers Monday that Republicans are banking on voters having “amnesia” in the midterm elections.

“They have not come up with a single, solitary, new idea to address the challenges of the American people,” Obama said. “They don’t have a single idea that’s different from George Bush’s ideas — not one.”

The president said that instead of helping him and Democrats push for healthcare and financial regulatory reform, Republicans are “betting on amnesia.”

“That’s what they’re counting on,” Obama told a Democratic National Committee fundraiser in Atlanta. “They’re counting on that you all forgot. They think that they can run the okey-doke on you. Bamboozle you.”
