Laura Ingraham stupefied by Obama’s popularity: ‘In defeat… he’s setting the agenda’
Conservative radio host Laura Ingraham on Sunday reacted to President Barack Obama’s rising poll numbers by advising the Republican-controlled Congress that “gridlock” would help the country.
“In defeat, Obama looks like he’s setting the agenda,” Ingraham complained during a panel discussion on Fox News Sunday. “I mean, his poll numbers are up. He’s got a bounce in his step… He is rising in the polls as he comes off this near-historic defeat across the board.”
“The Republicans shouldn’t fall into the media trap of ‘We have to work with Obama! We have to work with Obama!'” she continued. “Obama is going off on his own. He’s going to sign an executive order, he’s going to close Gitmo, he’s draining Gitmo down.”
“Republicans have been successful and the economy has been improving with two things: gridlock and opposing Obama. The economy has been getting better!”
