Krauthammer: ‘Irony’ Dems Are Making Case Against Slow Economy Obama Created
OBAMA: "So their basic story is America’s working class, America’s middle class, families like yours, have been victimized by a big, bloated federal government run by a bunch of left wing elitists like me. I’m being serious here. I mean, that’s the story that’s been told, and I haven’t, you know, turned on Fox News or listened to conservative talk radio yet today, but I turn them on enough over the past seven and a half years to know I’m not exaggerating in terms of their story."
BAIER: "President Obama in Indiana today."
KRAUTHAMMER: "Look, he’s making it sound as if this idea of the big, bloated federal government rub by left wing elitists is some kind of Fox News fantasy. How about exhibit “A” Obamacare. Jonathan Gruber and all the others who foist it upon the United States, elitists, pointed-headed intellectuals who designed a program that’s collapsing of its own weight, costing enormous amounts of money, having a terrible effect on the medicine — on medical — on the medical profession and I think will be gone one way or the other in several years is a perfect example of left wing hyper liberalism Obama brought into office. It was this idea that government and should try and do everything thwarted by Democrats who stopped the cap and trade and a lot of other measures that Obama would like to do, this is exactly what his government lass done and it’s given us a very weak economy and all the anxiety that everyone is acknowledging is what the candidates are running on. Sanders, trump, all the others as a result of a weak economy, a terrible recovery and people who have a sense that they are being squeezed. The irony is it’s the Democratic candidates themselves who make the case against the big government because of the results of who Obama has wrought and how it’s affected the electorate."
