‘a badge of honor’

President Obama returns to the White House after a trip to Cincinnati, Ohio where he spoke about jobs, September 22

“The Republicans in Congress call this class warfare. Well you know what? If asking a billionaire to pay the same tax rate as plumber or teacher makes me a warrior for the middle class, I’ll wear that charge as a badge of honor. Because the only class warfare I’ve seen is the battle that’s been waged against the middle class in this country for a decade.”

‘exploiting accidental gop candor’

Steve Benen: This week, Politico quoted a senior House Republican aide …. commenting on why Republicans should reflexively oppose the American Jobs Act, the senior staffer said, “Obama is on the ropes; why do we appear ready to hand him a win?”

…. The quote did not go unnoticed at the White House. Here’s President Obama yesterday (see video above), touting his jobs agenda outside an Ohio high school ….. Note that Obama also made use of the same quote at a Rose Garden event on Monday:

…… the president seizing on this has also not gone unnoticed by Republicans. House Majority Leader Eric Cantor’s office sent an email to more than 60 top GOP aides urging them to “be very careful on our tone when it comes to jobs/the president.”

Too late.

nothing changes, eh?

Following a meeting with President Obama, John Boehner, accompanied by Kevin McCarthy, talks about the budget on Capitol Hill, April 5

“Republicans approve of the American farmer, but they are willing to help him go broke.

They stand four-square for the American home – but not for housing.

They are strong for labor – but they are stronger for restricting labor’s rights.

They favor minimum wage – the smaller the minimum wage the better.

They endorse educational opportunity for all – but they won’t spend money for teachers or for schools.

They think modern medical care and hospitals are fine – for people who can afford them.

They consider electrical power a great blessing – but only when the private power companies get their rake-off.

They think the American standard of living is a fine thing – so long as it doesn’t spread to all the people.

And they admire the Government of the United States so much that they would like to buy it.”

Harry Truman
