On the final full day of campaigning in the 2012 race for the White House, President Obama is being blasted for a speech he gave in Madison, Wis., a speech his opposition calls “delusional.”
“We tried our ideas. They worked. The economy grew. We created jobs. Deficits went down,” Obama said Monday.
“We tried their ideas. They didn’t work. The economy didn’t grow, not as many jobs, and the deficit went up. But here’s the thing. Governor Romney’s a very talented salesman, and in this campaign he’s tried as hard as he can to repackage the same old bad ideas and make ‘em out to be new ideas and try to convince you that he’s all about change.”
“This is just delusional,” opined radio giant Rush Limbaugh, reacting to Obama’s suggestion that deficits have gone down in this administration. “This is our president, folks, entirely totally completely delusional. He’s not there. The elevator is not going to the top floor today. … This is worthy of men in the white coats. … I wonder if he knows what he’s saying. It’s on the prompter. … I wonder if he believes what he’s saying.”
Obama himself stressed during his Madison speech that he doesn’t utter anything he doesn’t intend to say.
“You know that I say what I mean and I mean what I say,” the president noted.
