38. Apparently there are some here who selectively listen to what Pres. Obama insists...

For example, many of his critics conveniently ignore the following comments by "the prez":

The president this evening said he wanted supporters to understand that we are just in the first quarter here. Weve gotten a lot of stuff done, but weve got a lot more work to do.

He criticized Democrats who complain that the health care plan didnt have a public option, or say to him, 'You ended the war in Iraq but havent completely finished the Afghan war yet.'

His message to them: Folks wake up! This is not some academic exercise. As Joe Biden put it, Dont compare us to the Almighty, compare us to the alternative.

Of course, Biden said it best here:

At a fundraiser in Manchester, NH, today, Vice President Biden urged Democrats to "remind our base constituency to stop whining and get out there and look at the alternatives. This President has done an incredible job. Hes kept his promises."

The remarks, made to roughly 200 top Democratic activists and donors, recall comments President Obama made last week to griping and groaning DemocratsFolks: wake up. This is not some academic exercise. As Joe Biden put it, Dont compare us to the Almighty, compare us to the alternative.
