Here's an analogy you may not have heard before. In an interview with Time Magazine, Barack Obama said that his reelection would be like the popping of a blister. He also said that once reelected, he expects Republicans to cooperate more with him. Is he for real?
In an interview with Time magazine, Obama says he expects Republicans in Congress to work more cooperatively in a second term, since his re-election would no longer be a factor.
"My expectation is that there will be some popping of the blister after this election, because it will have been such a stark choice," Obama said.
The president says he also wants to do a better job of explaining to the public how his policies will help the economy grow. Obama claims he didn't do a good enough job selling Americans on the stimulus plan and the auto company bailout because he was so focused on acting to fix the economy.
This always seems to be the problem with those on the left. Their policies fail, but they think it's simply because they didn't explain it well enough. Guess what, my president? You could have explained the stimulus for years, it doesn't mean it would have worked. It failed. It's bad policy.
