President Obama met again today (Saturday morning) with House Speaker John Boehner; House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi; Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid; Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell; and Vice President Joe Biden, to discuss how to resolve their differences on the debt crisis facing our nation.
After the meeting, the White House released a statement relaying Obama’s opposition to a short term deal, which he claimed would erupt again during the 2012 campaign. Heaven forbid the topic of how badly he has screwed up the American economy should be a campaign issue for Americans to consider. After all, it’s not his fault, is it?
The White House statement went on to say that:
Congress should refrain from playing reckless political games with our economy. Instead, it should be responsible and do its job, avoiding default and cutting the deficit.
Who is it who pushed through Obamacare and the bail out of the financial and automotive industries? Who spent over $1T dollars that we didn’t have?
And Obama has the hootspa to tell Congress to stop playing political games and to be responsible and do its job?
Talk about the pot calling the kettle black? That’s like the kid who stole his brother’s lunch money and blamed his brother for being careless. President Truman was known for the statement ‘the buck stops here.’ Obama will be famous for ‘the buck never stops here.’
Mr. Obama needs to take a good long look in the mirror when he accuses others of playing political games and not doing there jobs responsibly.
