Barack Obama: Heckovajob.
No seriously. He said this, this morning, in his childish rant about the government shutdown, entirely forgetting about his left-wing labor union base, in which striking — shutting down businesses just to get what they want — is the modus operandi. He was off teleprompter, as if I had to tell you.
“Everybody here just does their job, right? If you’re working here and in the middle of the day, you just stopped and said, ‘You know what? I want to get something, but I don’t know exactly what I’m going get, but — I’m just going to stop working until I get something. I’m going to shut down the whole plant until I get something.’ ”
“You’d get fired!”
As I tweeted:
Obama said this, but it's not a gaffe, guys: "If a worker shut down a manufacturing plant until they got what they wanted, they'd be fired."

No media is reporting this as a gaffe, or even as the monumental blunder that it was. In fact, so far, I’ve been unable to find a clip in which that idiotic brain fart wasn’t edited out.
And by the way, what Obama lies and in the most extreme partisan attempt possible calls a “reckless,” “Republican,” shutdown, which Speaker John Boehner is doing only to appease “extremists” — is actually Barack Obama’s and Harry Reid’s and the Democrats’ shut down, which they cold end today.
Video upcoming (not from any mainstream media source, I can assure you).
UPDATE: HERE IT IS!
