In his victory speech Tuesday night, Pres. Obama said he was ready to work with Republicans in Congress on the big issues facing the country:
“I am looking forward to reaching out and working with leaders of both parties to meet the challenges we can only solve together: reducing our deficit, reforming our tax code, fixing our immigration system, freeing ourselves from foreign oil.”
According to the New York Times, minutes after the president made those remarks, he placed calls to the two top Republican leaders in Congress — and they dissed him:
After his speech, Obama tried to call Boehner and the Senate Republican leader, Mitch McConnell, but was told they were asleep.
So Republican leaders can’t be bothered to get their dead asses out of bed when the president of the United States calls them? Seriously? These people are hopeless.
