President Obama / PAUL BEATY, AP

President Obama appears to have a new word for his Republican foes: "Rigid."

"We have a group of folks in the Republican Party who have taken over who are so ideologically rigid, who are so committed to an economic theory that says if folks at the top do very well then everybody else is somehow going to do well," Obama told Democratic donors Thursday in Chicago.

Rigid or not, the Republicans -- who say Obama believes too much in big government -- are heavy favorites to retain control of the U.S. House after the November elections.

The GOP also has a chance to win a majority in the U.S. Senate. Obama headlined a pair of fundraisers for the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee during his stop Thursday in Chicago.

"I need a Congress that works," Obama said. "And that means I need a Democratic Senate. And it would be helpful to have a Democratic House."
