Before leaving for the course Obama took time to slam Republicans for their "obstructionism" -- despite Democrats holding super-majorities in both houses of Congress:
"To hear President Obama tell it, Slurpees are the beverage of choice of obstructionist Republicans.
In each of 20 political speeches over the last two months, Mr. Obama has included a riff in which he portrays GOP leaders as sipping Slurpees while hard-working Democrats struggle to pull the economy out of a ditch.
“We’re down there. It’s hot. We were sweating. Bugs everywhere. We’re down there pushing, pushing, pushing on the car. Every once in a while we’d look up and see the Republicans standing there. They’re just standing there fanning themselves — sipping on a Slurpee."
A spokesman for Slurpee refused to comment, fearing retribution from HHS head Kathleen Sebelius, who has a history of threatening those who speak out.
