Skip to comments.Obama: GOP captive to ideologically rigid group

President Barack Obama on Friday blamed dysfunction in Congress on a Republican Party he said is captive to an ideologically rigid, unproductive and cynical faction, urging like-minded Democrats to show up for November's midterm elections.
Addressing Democratic donors at a fundraiser in Rhode Island and another in New York, Obama said Republicans had realized that blocking all progress led Americans to become cynical about government. Republicans consider that "a pretty good thing" because they don't believe in government to begin with, Obama said.
"It doesn't have to be that way," Obama said during a barbecue in Purchase, New York. "There has been a certain cynical genius to what some of these folks have done in Washington."
Later, at an event in Newport, Rhode Island, he told donors: "The answer to our challenges is actually pretty simple. We need a better Congress."

Call me “Rigid”. I’ve been accused of that before.
I’d be ashamed not to be.
make that ‘straight’. Spell check can’t fix stupid. ;^)>
What amazes me is the Mitch McConnell-John Boehner duo are the doormen for Obama Marx.
They have GOT to go.
Mitch and Boehner agree and want the GOP to drop the rigid backbone they could never understand.
If so, it sure isn't to an ideologically rigid Conservative group
We have the best Congress that money can buy.
(I know, I know, 'that's what SHE said'.)
Another member of the Tee Party.

That’s our president ? Gloves off!!! Republican Congress ge t off your backsides and tell people how Obama blocks anything he doesn’t like for the good of Obama not America.....the Scat in The White House is not our friend.
So the evil one is conjuring up his own version of the VRWC without using the “c-word.”
“There he goes again” - demonizing his opponents.
“...held captive to an ideologically rigid, unproductive and cynical faction...”
Let us ask Democrats a few questions.
1) How many Democrats leaders are *allowed* to be “Right to Life”?
The answer is “zero”, indicating rigidity of doctrine.
2) How many Democrats *cynically* support Planned Parenthood because its emphasis is on killing black babies?
The answer is “a lot”, with the balance just ignoring the obvious and embracing the “choice” lies.
3) How many bills are awaiting action in the US senate, solely because unproductive Democrat leader Harry Reid will not allow them to be debated, much less voted on?
The answer is “thousands”. For the last two years of the W. Bush administration, and the entire Obama administration, Harry Reid has obstructed almost all congressional actions in his power to do so.
4) How many Democrat leaders endorse cutting taxes and the size of government to improve government efficiency and stimulate the economy?
The answer is “zero”, again indicating a rigid, agenda driven ideology.
This list could go on and on. And it is not a case at all of “the pot calling the kettle black”, as the liberals in both parties fight as hard as they can to stop what the conservatives want, and to refuse to even compromise with them to show *any* restraint in government.
A “rigid, unproductive and cynical” group of people do not work to try to reign in an obviously out of control and intrusive, spendthrift government. In truth they seek moderation and reason, which is the furthest thing from rigidity, being unproductive, or cynical, except to far out and destructive extremes craved by the liberals.
I love this.......hope someone runs with it nationally!
