Obama uses fiscal cliff press conference as victory lap
Obama wasn’t making any friends today. In fact, he looked somewhat like a tool.
With less than 12 hours to go until the United States dove off the fiscal cliff, the President took the podium to make a public service announcement: I won.
Just as sources were reporting that Senate Republicans were close to cutting a deal with Senate Democrats and the White House, but that no deal has officially been made, the President disparaged Republicans in Congress at a live event with “middle class Americans” at the White House.
President Obama’s televised campaign event on Monday did the exact opposite of help.
