When asked by a reporter what he’d tell the unhappy person from Cincinnati that voted for him 3.5 years ago… Obama says "I’ve tried real hard."
According to him, the pesky Republicans don’t want to join him in turning this into a Socialist nation.
But the way, why is he talking in past tense? Is he not trying hard now? (Rhetorical question).
“I suspect that most people in Cincinnati would acknowledge that I’ve tried real hard, and we haven’t gotten the Republicans to engage on a whole range of issues that, I wish had happened,” Obama said in an interview with WLWT-TV in Cincinnati, Ohio.
“Part of what I think needs to happen in this election is the voters once again have to send a message, ‘We want common sense ideas. We don’t folks who are just saying no to everything. Even stuff, traditionally [they] were in favor of,” Obama said.
