President Obama, returning to Washington from his Christmas vacation in Hawaii, urged House and Senate GOP leaders to put partisan politics aside in the name of working to boost the economy.
The president said onboard Air Force One he hoped incoming House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) “will realize that there will be plenty of time to campaign for 2012 in 2012,” according to a pool report….
“I think that there’s gonna be politics, that’s what happens in Washington,” he said. “They are going to play to their base for a certain period of time. But I’m pretty confident that they’re going to recognize that our job is to govern….”
This is classic Obama, calling for non-divisiveness in a very divisive and derogatory manner.
