Washington, Aug.9 (ANI): President Obama, it seems, wants to be seen as presidential and not a partisan combatant, but there are times when exceptions can be made.
At a campaign fundraiser Thursday evening for Virginia gubernatorial candidate Creigh Deeds, Obama shed the cloak of bipartisanship and fired a verbal barrage at Republican critics and opponents of his economic policies.
Without naming names, he portrayed them as hypocrites with selective memories.
"That bank crisis didn't happen on my watch. I don't want the folks who created the mess to do a lot of talking. I want them to just get out of the way so we can clean up the mess," CBS quoted Obama, as saying.
White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs described Obama's outburst at the GOP as a liberating experience in the sense that inside the White House Obama "gets free advice every day from people that took the bus and rode it into the ditch." (ANI)
