Obama: "America Is Poised To Take Off," If Only Congress Would Do What I Want

Political dysfunction -- what you have when Republicans won't roll over for liberals.

In an interview with Bloomberg's Julianna Goldman, President Barack Obama stated, "I think America is poised to take off." The main obstacle, in Obama's mind, however, is political dysfunction.

"We're seeing pretty strong consumer confidence, despite weaknesses in Europe and even in Asia. I think America is poised to take off. And the question is, let's make sure that we don't have a self-inflicted wound, because there are a lot of silly games played up on Capitol Hill," Obama told Goldman.
