A 'blameless' Obama scolds Congress
BizPac Review ^ | September 23, 2012 | Michael Dorstewitz

Posted on 09/23/2012 3:39:39 PM PDT by cap10mike

In his Saturday radio and Internet address, President Barack Obama excoriated House Republicans for commencing their scheduled recess at a time when there were numerous bills to be voted on that allegedly would have buttressed the economy.

“Last week, without much fanfare, members of the House of Representatives banged a gavel, turned out the lights and rushed home, declaring their work finished for now,” Obama began. “If that frustrates you, it should, because their work isn’t finished.

“When they skipped town, members of Congress left a whole bunch of proposals sitting on the table. These ideas have been around for months. The American people want to see them passed.”

In what can only be described as the pot calling the kettle black, Obama said, “But apparently some members of Congress are more worried about their jobs and their paychecks this campaign season than they are about yours.”

It’s time for Americans to send Barry to the unemployment line.

Hey hussein, how was Letterman? Guess you haven’t been on the job 100% lately either. Come to think of it, when have you ever been 100% on the job Mr. campaigner-in-chief, narcissist-in-chief???

cap10mike~ “When they skipped town, members of Congress left a whole bunch of proposals sitting on the table. These ideas have been around for months. The American people want to see them passed.”

Is one of those items his budget for United States Government for : 2010 , 2011 , 2012 , or 2014 ?

It been over 1200 days ( 3 years) without a budget; no wonder there is a financial crisis !
Sounds to me that he is more concerned about reelection posture than protection of US embassies .

No mention of Harry (the cadaver) Reid not allowing a vote on a budget since Obama’s been president.

How can anything get passed or accomplished without a budget? Aren’t they just wasting their time, anyway?

Hasn’t Congress passed a number of jobs bills that the senate won’t consider?

What about those?

I still can’t believe that the Dems get away with this. Nancy saying they were ‘handed’ a disaster when she was Speaker two years prior.

This tantrum makes Barry look so immature. When he gets frustrated, he needs to shut up and just kick the dog.

(Dog lovers. Just kiddin'. It's a joke. I really don't want him to kick the dog. He should give the dog a bone. Tick tack, paddywack. Don't Gong me!)

The man who goes to bed while our ambassador is murdered and then skips to Las Vegas for a fund-raiser complains about Congress skipping town? I’ve never seen such chutzpah.

Not to mention the plethora of jobs bills and yes — even budgets — from the House that he hasn’t brought to the floor.

” These ideas have been around for months. The American people want to see them passed.”
In 2010 the American people sent a republican majority to the house. Maybe Obama and Harry the cadaver are not real clear on what the American people want. The only thing Harry the cadaver will let through are democrat bills.

Barry has no interest in being president. He is interested in getting his policies passed that will complete the destruction if the U.S. He is interested in hobnobbing with the rich and famous. He is interested in campaigning for his next term so he can do more of the above. But he has absolutely no interest in fulfilling day to day leadership and presidential duties.
