OMG… Obama: “If You Love Me, Ask Congress to Pass My Jobs Bill” (Video)
He’s done. This was pathetic.
Obama tells supporters:
“If you love me, ask Congress to pass my jobs bill.”
Really… He actually said this.
Here’s the video:
CBS News reported:
President Obama continued pushing his jobs bill in battleground states on Wednesday, telling a fired-up crowd of students at North Carolina State University that, “If you love me, you’ve got to help me pass this bill!”
Mr. Obama, speaking to a crowd of more than 9,000 people in an unairconditioned auditorium, reiterated the main points of his recently-unveiled American Jobs Act, and urged students to help him get it passed through Congress.
Framing the task as a “homework assignment,” the president called on students to “lift your voice, make it heard.”
“For those of you who did skip class today, I’ve got a homework assignment for you,” he said, “tell your Congress person that the time for gridlock and games is over; the time for action is now.”
“You can write a letter,” the president suggested, to laughter from the audience, after listing off a series of (largely Twitter-generation-friendly) methods for students to speak out. “When was the last time you did that?”
Man, what a rough day for democrats. You almost want to feel sorry for them.
