President Obama: Don’t Give the GOP the Keys to the Car


The president from last night’s DCCC fundraiser:

So after they drove the car into the ditch, made it as difficult as possible for us to pull it back, now they want the keys back.  (Laughter.)  No!  (Laughter and applause.)  You can’t drive!  (Applause.)  We don’t want to have to go back into the ditch!  We just got the car out!  (Applause.)  We just got the car out!  (Laughter.)

Wrong. What’s happened is that voters have decided that they will no longer let their lawmakers drive drunk. November is a DUI checkpoint, so to speak. And since both incumbent Republicans and Democrats can’t seem to control their drunken-sailor spending, voters — as concerned friends — are asking for the keys until Congress sobers up.
