Obama’s “We can’t wait” campaign is in full swing. And Tuesday, he added another soundbite to the growing collection showing him bashing Congress and vowing to go it alone.
“Whenever Congress refuses to act, Joe and I we’re going to act,” Obama said at the Eisenhower Executive Office Building, with Vice President Joe Biden off to the side. “In the months to come, wherever we have an opportunity, we’re going to take steps on our own to keep this economy moving.”
He added later: “With or without Congress, I’m going to be continuing to fight with them. I do hope Congress joins me instead of spending the coming months in a lot of phony political debates focusing on the next election.”

And he’s not kidding.
“Earlier Tuesday,” CNSNews reports, “the White House announced that as part of its “We Can’t Wait” campaign, the Departments of Agriculture and Commerce will expand the federal government’s purchase of bio-based products, promote regional rural job creation efforts, and develop a rural health care workforce.”
