I think we might want to send Robert Stacey McCain for an MRI. After watching excerpts of Steve Kroft’s interview with President Obama, I fear he might have damaged himself. Look at the evidence for yourself.
Today on Morning Joe, they were playing clips of Steve Kroft’s 60 Minutes interview with President Obama, and I literally started screaming. There is only so much of this bulls–t I can endure withouttalking back to my TV:
OBAMA: If I can’t get Republicans to move, partly because they’ve made a political, strategic decision that says, “Anything Obama’s for, we’re against, because that’s our best chance of winning an election,” I don’t think the American people would see that as a failure on my part. My preference is that they’d have a different attitude. You know, I’ve been joking with my staff lately that I think in my next speech, I am gonna say, “I am adamantly opposed to investing in education and putting teachers in the classroom. I’m adamantly opposed to rebuilding America and putting construction workers back to work.” And I’m thinking maybe suddenly Republicans might be for it. But, you know, keep in mind, I’m talking about Republican members of Congress. I’m not talking about Republicans around the country.
KROFT: They don’t like you much better. It’s only 7% approval rating.
PRESIDENT OBAMA: Yeah, no, I understand. But I think that they like the ideas that we put forward. I mean, the interesting thing is the majority of Republicans actually think we should have a balanced approach to deficit reduction, including tax increases for the wealthy. The majority of Republicans do think that we should make investments in roads and bridges and improving our airports and investing in basic research and medical research.
So if you take my name out of it and just look at the ideas that we’ve been presenting, these are common sense, mainstream ideas that …
THAT WE CAN’T AFFORD! YOU ALREADY BLEW A TRILLION DOLLARS ON THIS STIMULUS CRAP AND WHAT DID IT GET US, HUH? WHERE’S THE F–KING RECOVERY? THE DEFICIT’S OUT OF CONTROL! WE DON’T HAVE THE MONEY TO PAY FOR THIS CRAP! SHUT THE HELL UP ABOUT ‘COMMON SENSE’!
Now, if you go to The Other McCain, you’ll see that he used caps-lock twice, indicating extreme stress. For all we know, he could be bleeding into his brain as we speak. So, get over there and read his post, and hit his tip jar. After all, an MRI would be expensive. Think of it this way, he’s willing to watch this garbage, and write about it-so we won’t have to. If that isn’t taking one for the team, I don’t know what is.
