Does anyone play dumb better than Maxine Waters? It's a role that comes quite naturally.
“I don’t know who he was talking to, because we’re certainly not complaining,” said Waters, who has been critical of Obama in the past. “We are working. We support him and we are protecting that base because we want people to be enthusiastic about him when that election rolls around.”But remember, she never complains.
Obama told the audience at the annual gala to “take off your bedroom slippers, put on your marching shoes. Shake it off. Stop complaining, stop grumbling, stop crying. We are going to press on. We’ve got work to do, CBC.”
Waters said she found some of the language Obama used “not appropriate” and said it “surprised me a little bit.”
