President Obama told Democratic donors Wednesday night that most Americans don’t have time to think about the details of the Benghazi terrorist attack or the problems with Obamacare.
Speaking at a fundraiser at the Los Angeles home of “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Scandal” creator Shonda Rhimes, the president took his usual shots at the Republican Party, suggesting its members are focused on the wrong issues and frequently “obfuscate and they bamboozle and sometimes don’t say what’s true.”
Furthermore, the president said, Americans cannot be bothered with the GOP’s focus on the Benghazi attack and the administration’s response to it, or with the rampant problems and constant changes to Mr. Obama’s signature health-care reform law.
“Over time, they start thinking, ‘you know what, all politicians are the same.’ And most folks don’t have the time to sort out all the intricacies of Obamacare or Benghazi, or this or that. They don’t have time for that,” he said. “All they know is it’s not working for them. And so people then pull out and they drop out, and they don’t work. And that further entrenches those who are protecting an unjust status quo.”
