At Lavish Fundraiser Obama Agrees: Republicans ‘Un-American’ for Restricting Voter Access or Something

Gee, and only hours earlier he was pretending to speak for all Americans at Fort Hood. Then he hits a swanky fundraiser and the mask drops.

Denouncing the current Congress as the least productive in modern history, President Barack Obama chided Republicans on Wednesday for blocking a Senate bill aimed at narrowing the gender pay gap – an issue Democrats are counting on to give them an advantage in the fall elections.

Revving up Democratic donors at an opulent home in Houston, Obama said the legislation advocated by Democrats seems like common sense to most Americans, creating a pathway to meaningfully enforce the concept of equal pay for equal work. He sought to portray Wednesday’s failed Senate vote as part of a broader Republican strategy to obstruct any progress before voters go to the polls.

“You would think that that at this point it would not be a controversial proposition, and yet the Republicans in the Senate uniformly decided to say no,” Obama said, hours after Democrats failed to secure enough votes to advance the bill.

Republicans say the bill could hinder employers from granting raises or permitting flexible hours for fear of costly lawsuits. Democrats disagree, and hope the issue will spur women to back them by wide margins in November.

In an equally forceful rebuke to Republicans, Obama accused the GOP of seeking to restrict access to voting in Texas and elsewhere. When one donor shouted out that the GOP effort was “un-American,” the president concurred.

“How is it that we’re putting up with that?” Obama asked incredulously.

Indeed, how does he put up with all these “un-American” Republicans? It speaks volumes that he didn’t chide that individual, but then again, he obviously agrees.

    I honestly hate this man now. Originally I was worried that he would turn out bad, which is why I declined to vote for him in 2008, but I wished him well and hoped for the best. I cannot say the same for his wishes for me.

    Obama the destroyer. First he demolished the southside of Chicago. Then it screwed the entire state of Illinois. Now he is well on his way to ending freedom and liberty in the USA.
