WASHINGTON (CNN) - President Obama did not attend a White House meeting Thursday with members of his own debt commission, irking some of the Democrats on the panel who were expecting a high-level push from the commander-in-chief to show that its comprehensive deficit reduction plan is being taken seriously by the White House.
"He should have at least dropped by," one Democratic member of the debt commission told CNN, speaking on the condition of anonymity because he wanted to speak more freely about the panel's private meeting.
A second senior Democratic aide close to the panel added that commission members were miffed and privately believe the President did not attend because it would have been awkward "given the fact that he has just endorsed $900 billion in deficit spending" with the tax cut deal.

Don’t they know he’s very busy?
He’s crumbling. There were telltale signs aplenty in his latest presser.
Obama is completely falling apart among his own Rats.
Isn’t he on vacation?
He won’t complete his term. There are a number of ways that this could play out, but I say Biden will be president, at least for a short while.
No doubt he was busy almost giving up smoking....
It certainly seems as though the long knives are out. Oops, can we say that?
‘Obama’ means ‘light-worker’ in Kenyanesian.
Why not send Joe Biden in “O’s” place? I mean, what’s the difference?
Shows a disinterest in running the country which we will take care of in two years or before.
The dilettante president.
The tax cut rebuke is astonishing. It’s actually not pleasant to see a U.S. President so dissed by his own party. Kinda creepy.
Then there’s the big labor union that is going to oppose Obama on the S. Korea trade agreement.
I won’t be surprised if Obama decides he wants to retire and spend more time with his family.
I bet Obama and Axelrod sit in the Oval Office and make fun of these democrats...
Obama - need a smoke?
“Obama means light-worker in Kenyanesian.”
LOL! They never told us that was as opposed to “heavy worker”. :)
Yesterday a lib on NPR (Ken Rudin) said Obama was 'a poor leader, a poor negotiator (he concedes before the negotiations even begin), and a poor fighter.' He went on to compare Obama to the Wizard of Oz (as in 'he's a fake').
We, um, the world is better off when he's on vacation than when he's not.
Contact your congressman, senators, County Sheriff, DA, State Legislators, Governor, and County Grand Jury Foreman and demand that they indict, prosecute, convict and imprison BO, Big Sis and all of their local co-conspirators for leaking information to WikiLeaks and all the other crimes: Voter Fraud, Identity Theft, Illegal Foreign Campaign Contributions, TSA Sexual Assaults, Embezzlement of Government funds etc.
Mark Levin: The possibility of impeachment does not immunize the president from criminal prosecution. He remains, at all times, a citizen of the United States who is answerable to the law.
Shooting buckets with the Lakers, I believe......
Obama’s on vacation most of the time.
He’s made time to go play with the LA Lakers.
Must’ve been something on ESPN he wanted to see.
Everywhere he goes, someone's trying to get him to pass something.
Outside sneaking a smoke?
....Dumbo is losing credibility with even the MSM.......once that happens, he’s coconut residue...
When does he meet with Kobe and the Lakers?
Well, he’s definitely OUT TO LUNCH most of the time.
Zer0 does not want to know the facts about our Nation’s economic problems. That’s above his pay grade, which should be zero. I guess that’s why they call him Zer0!
Obama don’t care none about tax payers.
He only cares about tax takers.
Dat be his folk.
WoW, he’s not even voting ‘present’ anymore.
looks like this is where Ulsterman1 steps in from newsflavor - gee whiz - i wonder where he is lol
I guess out to lunch, as usual, can be he is on vacation.
The US dollar and the full faith and credit of United States... under the bus!
What makes these guys think they're important anyway? Sheesh!
legislative bipartisanship and executive leadership... under the bus!
Gibbs should do a press release in the absence of The One:
“Were it not for the failed policies of my predecessor, along with partisan Republicans, a few teabagger extremists, and other enemies, umm opponents, the buck would stop here.”
Too cold for golf - must be at the gym
It getting ugly.
I'm betting on an overdose of prescription meds...
The list, ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
This can go one of two ways: either the Lefties succeed in pushing him Left or the Lefties succeed in pushing him into the arms of the center.
If the Left keeps this up, they could even make people start feeling sorry for da man.
Any way you slice it, a party in public uproar against its own President is a risky gambit.
I gots a basketball JOnes,
I gots a basketball Jones,
with a side order of golf.
Imam Oamah can’t break free from playing with Reggie Love.
