Obama’s Jekyll and Hyde Routine
Does anyone take Obama seriously?
Check it out:
A little over halfway through President Obama’s State of the Union address last night, Republican Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler of Washington started clapping tentatively.
Obama was inviting the GOP to come to the table with its ideas on health care. “Tell America what you’d do differently,” Obama said. “Let’s see if the numbers add up.”
As Herrera Beutler began to clap wholeheartedly, Obama violently turned direction, prompting a roar of approval from the other side of the room.
“But let’s not have another forty-something votes to repeal a law that’s already helped millions of Americans,” Obama said, mocking Republicans for their attempts to turn back his signature legislative accomplishment.
Just as suddenly as Obama had changed tack, Herrera Beutler put her hands down, her eyes racing around the room and chagrin covering her face.
