The President’s recent “Get Er Done” speech upon the reopening of the federal government was quite telling to say the least. Gloating is not attractive on anyone. He spoke of working together, putting aside differences, and doing what’s good for the American people, then quickly proceeded to take jabs at and admonish his Republican opponents. And let’s remember all this “let’s work together” rhetoric is coming from the man who just a few days prior said he wasn’t going to budge. Obama admonished House Republicans on passing a farm bill, saying that “If House Republicans have ideas that they think would improve the farm bill, let’s see them. Let’s negotiate. What are we waiting for? Let’s get this done.” House Ag Committee Chairman, Republican Representative Frank Lucas, responded that the President should “check his facts”. That “fact check” from the House Ag Committee countered that farm bill negotiations have begun, that the House adopted a motion to go to conference October 11, named conferees to negotiate differences in the House and Senate passed farm bills October 12, and House and Senate Ag Committee leaders have met and will start formal conference meetings when the two bodies are in session together, which should be next week.
