Obama: We Need to Stop Focusing on Bloggers

by Breitbart News 17 Oct 2013, 9:43 AM PDT

On Thursday morning, President Obama delivered a speech applauding Democrats and “responsible Republicans” for reopening the Government and giving America the opportunity to pay its bills and avoid the first default in two hundred years.

Ignoring the dizzying increase in the national debt to almost $17 trillion and the inevitability of further huge increases with the implementation of the Affordable Care Act, Obama insists our deficits have been cut in half.

Obama provided inconsistent rhetoric while acknowledging Democrats and Republicans often share different strategies and ideas, claiming that this is a wonderful aspect of Democracy. But Obama cautions Americans from getting their ideas from their favorite internet blogs and radio broadcasters:

    And now that the government has reopened and this threat to our economy is removed, all of us need to stop focusing on the lobbyists, and the bloggers, and the talking heads on radio and the professional activists who profit from conflict, and focus on what the majority of Americans sent us here to do, and that's grow this economy, create good jobs, strengthen the middle class, educate our kids, lay the foundation for broad-based prosperity and get our fiscal house in order for the long haul. That's why we're here.

“The time is now near at hand which must probably determine, whether Americans are to be, Freemen, or Slaves.” G Washington July 2, 1776
