I can think of >one< (1) instance to which you could be referring, and as usual, your truthiness filter is out of kilter. That ain't what he said at all, much less is it the spirit in which he meant it. He said something to the effect that those who stood by silent and watched us get in the financial mess we found ourselves in in 2008 shouldn't be wantin' to get all talky now it's time to clean up the mess.<quoted text>
Without talking about anything specific here my main gripe is that Pres Obama has a few times basically told people that don't agree with him to shut up. Did he use those exact words? No. In one speech he did say he didn't want certain people to ".... do a lot of talking"
I feel a whole lot the same way. A whole bunch of ya jacked on the same fiscal binge as the rest of the nation, got miraculously fiscal "clean" about Jan'2009 and now, like a "reformed" addict on the lecture circuit, ya's can't shut the heck up about how "irresponsible" everyone else is NOW. Where was yer fiscal yap for the preceding 7 years?
That's what he meant, and he was right. 1st amendment truth? Yer all a bunch of phonies.
If you've got any other >actual< instances where he told someone to "shut up", then.....ah, I know it's a waste of time. Just more of that pious "truth".
