Obama goes on the attack

Posted By on Wed, Jun 29, 2011 at 7:00 PM

President Obamatoday took a page out of Harry Truman's book, blaming Republicans for a major role in creating today's budget problems and the predominant role in blocking solutions.

He accused the Republicans, who last week dropped out of negotiations on the budget, of avoiding tough decisions and said they were playing a dangerous game that could significantly affect the nation’s struggling economy and capital markets and slow down private efforts to create jobs.

Mr. Obama repeatedly mocked tax breaks that he said were for “millionaires and billionaires, oil companies and corporate jet owners,” saying that voters would not look kindly on Republican lawmakers who defended such breaks at the cost of cuts in popular programs like health care, education and food safety.

Will it work?
