Distractions, distractions, distractions.
“This president was elected to get our economy going again, to attract capital into the country that is now parked off-shore, and anything that takes us away from that agenda is an unwanted distraction,” said Ken Blackwell, a member of the president’s voting ethics committee and former transition to team member.
Blackwell recently appeared on Fox News to weigh in about the president’s Charlottesville remarks.
“The president had a measured response on Saturday. He had a more expansive response on Monday. I would have done a full stop right there. He didn’t, because what he’s trying to drive home is…this is a threat to our culture — a threat of violence, a threat of hate,” and blame belongs to people across the political spectrum, not just the right.
And there’s plenty of evidence to prove it. Blackwell said the president continuing to comment on the incident got him off his game of improving the infrastructure and putting people back to work.
In the second part, Blackwell noted that throwing someone under the bus won’t appease leftists.
