Obama has big plans for when Republican ‘fever’ breaks

President Barack Obama waves at Honeywell employees after delivering remarks in Minneapolis

President Barack Obama cited a Republican “fever” as the reason why he hasn’t been able to make progress on deficit reduction or immigration reform at a Minneapolis fundraiser today.

The remarks are one of Obama’s sharpest Republican critiques — equating their recent activism with illness — and are sure to draw condemnation from the right.

From the pool report:

Most of the talk was standard campaign speech, but the president did say he hopes that Republicans will be more cooperative after he wins reelection.”It will be coming to a head in this election. We’re going to have as stark a contrast as we’ve seen in a very long time between the two candidates. 2008 was a significant election, obviously. But John McCain believed in climate change. John believed in campaign finance reform. He believed in immigration reform. There were some areas where you saw some overlap.”
“In this election, the Republican Party has moved in a fundamentally different direction. The center of gravity for their party has shifted.”
