Obama: Republicans ‘trying to mess with me’

[Ed. note: Yeah, that’s what it is, sport. It’s not that your ideas stink. They’re just being a bunch of meanies.]

Speaking at a Ford Motor Co. plant in Missouri Friday, President Obama accused congressional Republicans of “trying to mess with me” by derailing basic government operations.

The sharply-personal remarks–made during a speech in which the president outlined his economic vision–came just hours after the House passed a continuing resolution on a largely party-line vote that would keep the government running while simultaneously defunding the Affordable Care Act. Because the Senate is expected to strip out the defunding plan when it considers the measure, the House action raises the prospect of a possible government shutdown at the end of the month.
