Obama turns the other cheek, again

After all the crap that the Republicans have thrown at Obama, he is still a class act to them. At a speech in New Orleans, he thanks Gov. Bobby Jindal and the crowd boos, and he defends Jindal for working hard and doing a good job:

In a different speech, he does comment about some of the rhetoric being thrown at him from the right, and responds with a challenge:

What I reject is when some folks say we should go back to the past policies when it was those very same policies that got us into this mess in the first place.

Another way of putting it is when, you know, I’m busy and Nancy’s busy with our mop cleaning up somebody else’s mess — we don’t want somebody sitting back saying: “you’re not holding the mop the right way; you’re not mopping fast enough; that’s a socialist mop”. Why don’t you grab a mop, why don’t you help clean up? Grab a mop — let’s get to work.
