Obama wants to break Republican “fever”
President Obama said a Republican “fever” was the reason he hasn’t been able to move legislation on deficit reduction or immigration reform, BuzzFeed reports.
Said Obama: “I believe that If we’re successful in this election, when we’re successful in this election, that the fever may break, because there’s a tradition in the Republican Party of more common sense than that. My hope, my expectation, is that after the election, now that it turns out that the goal of beating Obama doesn’t make much sense because I’m not running again, that we can start getting some cooperation again.”
He added: “My expectation is that if we can break this fever, that we can invest in clean energy and energy efficiency because that’s not a partisan issue.”
