Obama Again Scoffs at ‘Phony Scandals’ Most Americans Think Are Real

27 June 2014 / 24 Comments

President Obama is back on the road complaining that Republican lawmakers offer nothing but “cynicism and fear and frustration,” as they focus more on “phony scandals” than the needs of the American people.

It’s become his standard pitch to big-ticket Democratic donors like the ones who paid between $10,000 and $32,400 to attend a fundraiser in Minneapolis at the home of Democratic power couple Sam and Sylvia Kaplan for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.

After regaling the wealthy crowd with tales of his own struggles as a member of the middle class, Obama turned his attention to congressional Republicans.

“That’s what we should be talking about every day in Washington,” he said, referring to the struggles of those less wealthy than the donors he was addressing, such as Rebekah Erler, whom he visited with earlier in the day.

“We talk about everything else. … We talk about phony scandals, and we talk about Benghazi, and we talk about polls, and we talk about the Tea Party, and we talk about the latest controversy that Washington has decided is important.”

Don't interfere with anything in the Constitution. That must be maintained, for it is the only safeguard of our liberties. And not to Democrats alone do I make this appeal, but to all who love these
great and true principles.

Let us then turn this government back into the channel in which the framers of the Constitution originally placed it.
