Obama Unloads on Republicans, Sees 'Cynical Genius'

NEWPORT R.I. ó Obama, raising money for Democratic candidates as Republicans aim to take over the Senate in the fall, on Friday blamed some Republicans for a calculated effort to undermine faith in government by opposing policy compromises.

"There has been a certain cynical genius to what some of these folks have done," Obama said at the second of three fundraisers he attended.

"What theyíve realized is, if we donít get anything done, then people are going to get cynical about government and its possibilities of doing good for everybody," he said in Purchase, New York. "And since they donít believe in government, thatís a pretty good thing."

2. President Obama sees exactly what they are doing.

And, thankfully, most of us do, also.
