Barack Obama is all about progress and looking to the future. Which is why today, speaking at tech startup hub 1776, he went back once again to his 2012 campaign to dig up this gem:

“My hope is the American people look at today’s news and understand that in fact we are making strides,” Mr. Obama said. “We have not seen more consistent job growth since the ’90s but we can make even more progress if Congress is willing to work with my administration and to set politics aside at least occasionally, which I know is what the American people are urgently looking for.”

He called on Congress to show “a sort of economic patriotism — to say to yourself, how is it we can start rebuilding this country.”

“Economic patriotism.” For him, that one never gets old.

First of all, in what universe does President Obama have any standing to lecture people on setting politics aside? Has he ever listened to himself?

Can we also call it downright creepy?
