It has been a Junius Horribilis for President Obama. [...] Apparently Bryson will have to clean up his own wreckage. This White House has too many other pileups to deal with. – Pileup at the White House, by Dana Milbank
“Well, the truth of the matter is, as President of the United States I have got a lot of responsibilities. …” – Pres. Barack Obama
LAME EXCUSE by Pres. Obama not to show up in Wisconsin. It’s also insulting to Democrats, activists and labor.
In interviews with local radio stations across the country, this beauty stands out to me as defining. Hey, but I’m a liberal who believes unions are the foundation of the middle class.
That’s obviously not where Pres. Obama stands, evidently believing that corporations grant workers rights without a fight.
