Well, the paraphrase for the day, at least. President Obama responding to Rep. Dave Camp (R-MI), asking whether or not they can find more middle ground on tax relief:
Obama says tax relief for some working families must come from payroll so even families who don’t pay income taxes get relief and they will spend it.
He said “feel free to whack me over the head because I probably will not compromise on that part.
Obama said that there will be time to beat him up and a time for politics. He said I understand that and I will watch you on fox news and feel bad about myself.
More of that, please. Shorter Barack Obama: “You’re likable enough, Rep. Camp.”
