Same guy who had Churchill’s bust removed from the Oval Office.
Via Beltway Confidential:
President Obama, speaking at a million-dollar fundraiser yesterday, told supporters that he believes Americans “will do the right thing” by supporting his reelection bid and second term agenda.
“I think it was Churchill who said that the Americans always end up doing the right thing after they’ve tried every other alternative,” Obama said, to laughter, after summarizing the policies discussed in his State of the Union speech. “And that’s true. We muddle our way through because of messy democracy and it’s in our nature to be contentious and have these big arguments, but ultimately we choose the right path. And that’s what the world is counting on right now as well.” Obama also said that he “know[s] we’re going to get there, but I’m going to need all of your help to get there as well.”
