If there is one thing President Obama doesn't lack it's confidence. While shmoozing with the one-percent last night at a swanky New York City fundraiser hosted by gay singer Ricky Martin, President Obama said he's "not worried" about being re-elected.

“Their message will be, ‘You’re upset, you’re unsatisfied. It’s Obama’s fault.’ But I’m not worried. The reason I’m not worried is because of you,” Obama said.

Obama contrasted his vision of government’s role in the economy and society in wide-ranging remarks to the audience, and continued his partisan attacks against Republicans.

And yes, he went there again:

“The ideas they’re putting forward have been tried,” Obama said. “We’ve tried them from 2000 to 2008 and it resulted in the most sluggish job growth we’ve ever seen.”


"I'm on not worried. The reason I'm not worried is because...George Bush!"
