Delivering a speech in front of the Associated Press today, President Barack Obama took a very harsh stance against the budget plan being supported by House Republicans. While Obama has already been engaging in the rhetoric of inequality when referring to the plan, he further tweaked his language to contrast the difference between himself and the GOP’s presumptive nominee, Mitt Romney. He referred to the budget as a “Trojan horse” and “thinly veiled Social Darwinism.” In an election year, them’s fightin’ words. AirTalk takes a look at Obama’s speech and the potential political fallout for both parties. Furthermore, we’ll look forward to tonight’s primaries in Wisconsin, Maryland and Washington D.C.
