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. Â This plant and your jobs might not exist.
Uh, Mr. President: those “some folks” are called Republicans. Republicans, Mr. President. Â They are your political opponents. Â You should remind the voters who those “some folks” are.
And no — that language isn’t inappropriate at an event like this. Â 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.
