Obama Blasts Republican Economic Policies: GOP ‘Snake Oil’ Could Jeopardize Economy
With the midterm elections just 10 days away, President Barack Obama is blasting Republicans’ economic policies at rallies in support of Democratic candidates and over the airwaves.
“This is a choice between the policies that got us into this mess and the policies that are going to lead us out of this mess,” Obama told a crowd of about 37,000 on Friday at a rally in Los Angeles for California Sen. Barbara Boxer. “They are clinging to the same worn-out, tired, snake-oil ideas that they were peddling before.”
At a rally in Las Vegas, Obama told supporters of Nevada Sen. Harry Reid: “They’re banking on the fact that you might forget who got us in this mess in the first place.”
