President Obama delivered a rallying cry to Democrats at the party’s winter meeting in Washington, D.C., today, urging an unabashed embrace of his economic record as they head into the 2016 campaign.
“We were told by our good friends the Republicans that our actions would crush jobs, explode the deficits and destroy the country. I mean, I want everybody to do a fact check,” Obama told the crowd.
“If we were to look at the evidence, it’s pretty clear whose theory works,” he said. …
The president singled out Republican Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky — an “interesting guy” — for advocating greater outreach to minorities and efforts to fight inequality, but suggested he was just “talking the talk.”
Mr. Obama made no mention of the controversy surrounding former NYC mayor Rudy Giuliani’s comments questioning the president’s patriotism. But Obama did offer a spirited close to his address, referring to “this great country’s amazing story” and declaration of “God bless, America.” [Whatever that means. – Ed.]
