    Obama blast Republicans as "trying to mess with me!"


    President Barack Obama excoriated Congress for being "focused on trying to mess with me," hours after the Republican House approved a stopgap spending measure to continue government operations, but also eliminate funding for "Obamacare."

    House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, R-Va., center, makes remarks as he is joined by Speaker of the House John Boehner, R-Ohio, on Capitol Hill Friday.

    The president angrily lashed out at lawmakers who voted largely on party-lines hours earlier to take aim at the signature domestic accomplishment of his first term, the GOP's opening gambit in a fiscal standoff with just days to go until the government runs out of money.

    "They're focused on politics; they're focused on trying to mess with me," Obama told a crowd at a Ford plant in Kansas City. "They're not focused on you."

    The public battles came 10 days before the deadline at which the government will run out of money, causing a myriad of federal services to cease. Republicans were unable to advance legislation to preserve government operations without including the provision to eradicate the Affordable Care Act as a way to entice conservatives.

    But the measure faces almost certain doom in the Senate, where Democrats have said they would vote to restore funding for the health care overhaul. And even if they were to fail, Obama has flatly promised to veto the bill.

    Heard on the 10:00 news - they showed a clip of Obama speaking. They "started" the clip with: " "They're not focused on you."

    Totally left out the "They trying to mess with me."

    Kinda defeats the "focus" of what he was saying, doesn't it? :10400:

    What does any of this have to do with the OP? Or, again, are you saying Obama is lying and that the GOP is NOT "messing" with him?
