Obama attacks GOP field on bus tour

obama attacks GOP

Hitting back against an emboldened GOP, President Barack Obama launched a rare through attack Monday on the Republican presidential field, criticize his potential 2012 rivals for their blanket opposition to any deficit-cutting compromise connecting new taxes.

"That's just not common sense," Obama told the crowd at a town hall-style meeting within Cannon Falls, Minn., as he kicked off a three-day bus tour from side to side Minnesota, Iowa and Illinois, "You've got to be prepared to compromise to move the country forward," the president said later in the day as he delivered the similar message at a town hall in Decorah, Iowa.

At the same time Obama was forced to protect his own record as Iowa voters asked him about all the compromises he's complete with the GOP, "I make no apologies for being reasonable," Obama declared as he stood in facade of a cheery red barn, surrounded by bales of hay, The president recalled a moment in last week's GOP presidential argue when all eight of the candidates said they would refuse to hold a deal with tax increases, even if tax revenues were outweighed 10-to-1 through spending cuts.
