As reported in Real Clear Politics:
Preaching to the choir at a rally for Democratic gubernatorial candidate Creigh Deeds, our beloved Fuhrer Obama said:
I expect to be held responsible for these issues [the economy, health care, etc.] because I'm the president. But I don't want the folks who created the mess doing a lot of talking. I want them to just get out of the way . . . I don't mind cleaning up after them, but don't do a lot of talking. Am I wrong . . .?
Yes, Mein Fuhrer, you are wrong, as usual. I think I will say that now before your green-shirted thugs come to get me. Most of us didn’t even contribute to ‘this mess’ you are talking about. But for now, at least until you manage to completely abolish the rights guaranteed by the First Amendment, we don’t care who you want talking.
We also will not be ‘getting out of the way.’ We intend to be in your ‘way’ every step of that way.
We will be praying that God will speed the day when you and your thugs sail back to Chicago (with apologies to Chicago) or wherever it is you came from. Until then, wherever you turn, we will be ‘in your way.’
As a matter of fact, if anyone should shut up, that would be you. But we are all allowed to talk, or we used to be. So I suppose we have to let you talk, too.
It would be amusing to see what you could say sometime without that teleprompter.
