Obama: The Government Is Us, And We’re Doing Things Right
Do you feel well-represented by your Federal government?
If you said no, President Barack Obama wants you to change your tune: You should love the government “because the government is us,” the President said Monday.
Obama was attempting to make the point that Americans should focus less on government failings and more on where it makes things better.
“We can’t just stand on the sidelines. We can’t take comfort in just being cynical. We all have a stake in government success— because the government is us,” the President proclaimed. “And we’re doing things right”
He went on later, “We’re doing a lot of this work administratively but unfortunately there are still a bunch of rules, a lot of legislation that has poorly designed some of our agencies and forces folks to engage in bureaucratic jump-hoop – hoop jumping – instead of just going ahead and focusing on mission and delivering good service to our citizens.”
