Obama Ready to Take on Congressional ‘Crazies’

President Obama said he spent part of his recent vacation “figuring out how we are going to deal with the crazies” in Congress, according to Time.

During a Monday night appearance at a fundraising event in Las Vegas, the president announced that he feels “refreshed, renewed, recharged and a little feisty.”

As Obama and Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada traveled together to the fundraiser, they discussed how to work with the Republican majorities in the Senate and House on budget, energy, education and other issues. The president noted that neither he nor Reid is running for re-election, so they are “riding off into the sunset together.”

While Obama declined to specify which lawmakers he considers “crazies,” it is no secret that his administration has major philosophical differences with the GOP's right wing.

“Too often, our political debates are not about what’s best for the country but what’s best for the next election,” Obama said. He stressed that the country requires “not just a president who, after a few gray hairs, seems to know what he’s doing, but we also need a Congress that functions.”

Time reported that earlier in the day, Obama told his audience at a green-energy conference that the nation must ramp up efforts to replace fossil fuels with renewable sources of energy. Failing to do so “is not the American way,” he said. “This is about the past versus the future. America believes in the future.”
