Obama: ‘Republicans in Congress Love to Say No’

President Obama spoke in Milwaukee today and fired up the crowd with a Labor Day speech pushing Democratic policies and taking a few shots at Republican obstinance. In fact, he told the crowd that Republicans “love to say no” and only oppose policies they used to propose because he’s suddenly for them now.

Obama took a shot at Republicans for opposing policies that will “help more working families get ahead,” and said, “They oppose almost everything! I’m not making that up, I’m just telling the truth. It’s just the facts. In fact, they oppose stuff they used to be for!”

The president then dipped into a brief semi-comedic riff:

“I am just telling the truth. The sky is blue today. Milwaukee brats are delicious. The Brewers are tied for first place. And Republicans in Congress love to say no. Those are just facts, the facts of life. They just say no to everything.”
