Washington (AP) -- President Barack Obama said Thursday that the 2012 election will be a "fun debate" over two competing visions for the nation, referring to Mitt Romney as the Republican "front-runner" who has backed policies that would undermine middle-class families.
At a fundraiser held at a Washington hotel, Obama told supporters that his administration had spent the past three years "cleaning up after some of that mess, and I don't want to have to do it again."He warned that a budget plan pushed by House Republicans would hurt early childhood education, veterans and road and bridge projects crucial to the nation's economic recovery.[...]
Kirsten Kukowski, a spokeswoman for the Republican National Committee, said in response that Obama was "still pointing fingers instead of talking about his accomplishments. The president who was all about hope and change has now resorted to distortion and fear."
Obama revisited many of the same arguments he made earlier in the week during a speech to newspaper executives, in which he framed the election as a choice between his work to use government to help people prosper and Republicans who would let average Americans struggle while pushing policies that help the wealthy few.
"It's going to be a big debate, and it's going to be a fun debate. Because it's always good to have the truth on your side," Obama said.
Blog author's comments - Obama refuses to take any responsibility for the destruction he has done in less than four years. He continues to blame the Bush administration for almost all that is wrong with the country.
Most of the problems we now have are the result of Obama's policies and agenda. If Obama is in office another term the damage inflicted upon America may never be repaired.
It is amusing to read that he says he has the truth on his side. Obama also said the GOP budget plan would hurt the nation's economic recovery. The economy will begin to recover when Obama moves out of the White House.
