....In his first Sunday show interview since his reelection, President Barack Obama admonished congressional Republicans for their unwillingness to compromise over debt reduction and implored the media to cast aside its pox-on-both-your-houses coverage.
"We have been talking to the Republicans ever since the election was over. They have had trouble saying yes to a number of repeated offers," said the president, according to an advance transcript of the interview with host David Gregory. Obama added later, "[S]o far, at least, Congress has not been able to get this stuff done. Not because Democrats in Congress don't want to go ahead and cooperate, but because I think it's been very hard for Speaker Boehner and Republican Leader McConnell to accept the fact that taxes on the wealthiest Americans should go up a little bit, as part of an overall deficit reduction package."Read the full story HERE and view the related video below:
No Mr. President YOU'RE THE PROBLEM...not the GOP.
Isn't there even 1 member of the PATHETIC LIBERAL MEDIA who might consider asking the President after this interview, "Could it be Mr. President that the problem is not just the GOP's unwillingness to say 'yes' but perhaps your unwillingness to stop saying no?"
