WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama will work with Congress where he can and circumvent lawmakers where he must, his top advisers warned Sunday in previewing Tuesday's State of the Union speech.
Obama faces a politically divided Congress on Tuesday and will use his annual address to demand expanded economic opportunity. Absent legislative action, the White House is telling lawmakers that the president is ready to take unilateral action to close the gap between rich and poor Americans.
"I think the way we have to think about this year is we have a divided government," said Dan Pfeiffer, a longtime Obama adviser. "The Republican Congress is not going to rubber-stamp the president's agenda. The president is not going to sign the Republican Congress' agenda."
I saw another article myst posted that was like this one. They keep repeating this redistribute the wealth and Obama has a pen theme over and over.
I saw on a news show that even the moderate democrats are questioning this theme.
Does Obama really think blaming the GOP for the economy and playing everyone adores him he is King, will work?
Do the people that advise Obama have the same delusions?
Obama can't pull the rich fat cat it is not fair theme as he just golfed with rich fat cats and IS A rich fat cat.
