Barack Obama today, at a Chrysler plant that was saved by his administration’s intervention:
I want you to remember, though, that if some folks had their way, none of this would be happening. This plant and your jobs might not exist.
Uh, Mr. President: those “some folks” are called Republicans. Republicans, Mr. President. They are your political opponents. You should remind the voters who those “some folks” are.
And no — that language isn’t inappropriate at an event like this. There are 100 days to the election. Despite the wishes of your Chief of Staff, that’s an election it would be good for your party to win.
