Obama can't penetrate Republican base

In doing what he does best and what he was apparently made for, President Obama whined in an interview with The New Yorker magazine that he is, "not the caricature that you see on Fox News or Rush Limbaugh" and that further, the gridlock on Capitol Hill has been caused by his inability to, “penetrate the Republican base.”

Well, maybe the president needs a clue about the Republican base that he can't penetrate.

Maybe if you didn't travel around the country Mr President on one of the most expensive jets in the world to fly and tell people who make a good income working all their lives to build a business, that they, "didn't build that" or that they don't pay their fair share, you would have a better chance reaching us.

Maybe if you didn't force us to buy an insurance plan we don't want, by cancelling ones that we do want, you may be able to reach us.

Maybe if you didn't tell us in the face of 55 million dead babies after 41 years of Roe v Wade, that our efforts to stop that slaughter is really a, "war on women" you might be able to reach us.

Maybe after a year of obfuscating on Benghazi and not letting a single staff member of the consulate who was present during the attack be questioned, maybe if you'd quit stalling on that momentous issue, maybe you could reach us.

Maybe if you weren't increasing food stamp usage by 70% since 2008, and then telling us we still don't spend enough on welfare, you may be able to reach us.

Maybe if you didn't constantly lie to us about what really creates jobs, or what the REAL unemployment numbers are, or why conservatives were targeted by the IRS, or that you would reduce the cost of healthcare premiums in Obamacare, or that you wouldn't take money from lobbyists, or that you unequivocally set a "red line" on Syria and then tell us you didn't, or that, "if you like your healthcare plan, you can keep your healthcare plan," or that you would actually defend the Constitution, and on, and on, and on.

That's why you can't, "penetrate the Republican base" Mr President. It is because none of your ideals are our ideals. it is because your policies are bankrupt. It is because you are a fraud. Period.

President Obama said that gridlock on Capitol Hill stemmed from an inability to “penetrate the Republican base” and convince voters there that he’s “not the caricature that you see on Fox News or Rush Limbaugh,” rather than his oft-questioned willingness to socialize with lawmakers.

In bonus excerpts from an interview with The New Yorker’s David Remnick, Obama conceded that there was “no doubt that personal relationships matter at the margins and can tip something over the finish line,” and admitted that he “wasn’t in a position to work the social scene in Washington” as the father of two young girls. [...]

“The issue has been the inability of my message to penetrate the Republican base so that they feel persuaded that I’m not the caricature that you see on Fox News or Rush Limbaugh, but I’m somebody who is interested in solving problems and is pretty practical, and that, actually, a lot of the things that we’ve put in place worked better than people might think,” Obama said.
