Obama: “Reporters Tell Me My Ideas Are Great”
One thing President Obama said yesterday during his speech in Galesburg, Ill. stood out to me:
President Obama said reporters praise his economic proposals as “great” and tell him they are “all good ideas.”
Obama made the remarks in a speech Wednesday in Galesburg, Ill., focused on the economy.
Obama said the news media often praises his ideas.
“It’s interesting, in the run-up to this speech, a lot of reporters say that, well, Mr. President, these are all good ideas, but some of you’ve said before; some of them sound great, but you can’t get those through Congress. Republicans won’t agree with you,” Obama said.
Maybe you shouldn’t be listening to the reporters so much, Mr. President. Just a thought.
