President Obama attacks GOP over vision for the country
http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20100630/ap_on_bi_ge/us_obam...

Seizing on a political opportunity, President Barack Obama on Wednesday lashed out at Republicans as out of touch with the daily problems of Americans, hoping to sharpen the contrast with the opposition party as midterm elections loom and economic anxiety still runs high.

Speaking to a town hall in his latest getaway from Washington, Obama reveled in what the Democratic Party sees as two recent political gaffes by Republicans one House lawmaker's apology to BP oil and another's characterization of the nation's financial collapse as an "ant."

More broadly, Obama said of Republicans: "Their prescription for every challenge is pretty much the same and I don't think I'm exaggerating here: basically cut taxes for the wealthy, cut rules for corporations and cut working folks loose to fend for themselves."

(snip)
"We've tried the other's sides theories," Obama said. "We know what their ideas are. We know where they led us."

1. Despite all the country's current problems,
I think Obama will prove to be a good spokesman for Democratic ideas this fall, and a formidable opponent in 2012.

3. The only "visions" they have are dollar signs
Getting rich and staying rich are their only two plans.

4. Nice. I wonder how much play this will get.
The media usually ignores Obama's more progressive comments but they do like a fight.

5. How soon people forget.
I dare say he needs to use the "B word"

BUSH

"We've tried the other's sides theories," Obama said. "We know what their ideas are. We know where they led us."

Remove the words other sides , Their , They and insert Bush, McConnell , Boehner
