They rammed through the most radical piece of legislation in US history… Without even reading it.
Today Barack Obama told supporters that his radical agenda is on the ballot this year.
“My name’s not on the ballot, my agenda is.”
The Hill reported:
President Obama said Tuesday that while his name isn’t on the ballot on Nov. 2, his agenda practically is.
The president stopped short of saying next week’s election is a referendum on his policies, but suggested the outcome of key elections next Tuesday could determine the fate of his agenda.
“My name may not be on the ballot, but our agenda for moving forward is on the ballot, and I need everybody to turn out,” Obama said Tuesday afternoon during an appearance on the Rev. Al Sharpton’s radio show.
Obama made the remarks to appeal to African-American voters to show up for Democrats at the polls. The president has made appeals to young voters and Latino voters in recent days in order to try to drive high voter turnout and replicate the coalition that propelled him and congressional Democrats to victory in 2008.
To that end, the president will also participate this evening in a conference call with black leaders.
Finally, something we can agree on.
