WASHINGTON, DC- Congressman Jeff Landry (R, LA-03) released the following statement after he declined the President's invitation to the White House this morning: "I have respectfully declined the President's invitation to the White House today. I don't intend to spend my morning being lectured to by a President whose failed policies have put our children and grandchildren in a huge burden of debt. Over the past two years, President Obama and congressional Democrats have overseen the largest budget deficits in U.S. history. On top of that, the President's budget adds $1.3 trillion to our national debt every year for the next ten years - a budget that failed to muster a single vote in the Senate. Until the President produces a responsible deficit reduction plan, I'm not going to the White House to negotiate with myself. Our conference has put out for months where we would start the process. The President has done nothing, just like he has for the people of the Gulf Coast. For months, the Louisiana delegation has sent the President numerous requests to meet with him or his chief of staff concerning the de facto moratorium issued in the Gulf of Mexico, a de facto moratorium that has driven gas prices up and now threatens to derail economic recovery; the President hasn't even had the courtesy to write us a note back. I refuse to partake in his political grandstanding that will ultimately do nothing for debt reduction and job creation."
Good for him.
We need a few more in the GOP like Rep. Landry.
Let’s start a trend, shall we?
has this guy formed an ‘exploratory committee’? Sounds like he’s running for President. Bravo!
Funny how those “dumb” Cajuns are a lot smarter than the smartest president in the universe!
(This caustic remark comes from a Cajun who’ll debate any MSM idiot any day.)
I wish more PUBs had courage to respond that way. Accepting a meeting with this prez is like endorsing his theft of the future of the next generation.
Congressman Jeff Landry, one of few with the courage to tell it like it is and not play “I’m the Magic N “ games with the street hustler from Kenya.
A politician with guts!
How novel - and laudable!
The people of Louisiana are indeed fortunate.
Daaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaayummmmmmmmmmm!!!!!!! Good going.
Thank you sir!
Good for you Rep. Landy!
Good for you Rep. Landy!
What he said.
A star is born! Well done, Sir.
Debt is only part of the problem, and one that Hussein proudly blames on GWB.
Hussein has sided with America's enemies, sued one of the 57 states, refused to prosecute thugs with weapons who intimidate voters at polling stations and has failed to provide even a basic history of who he really is.
I applaud Landry and his remarks. But members of congress should be calling Hussein on all of this and not just the debt.
I am totally impressed by his integrity AND courage of convictions!
Now HERE. Is a real man!!
Wow. Good job, Mr. Landry!
Awesome statement. Right between the eyes. We need more, much more. Every Republican in the House needs to be echoing this. The people are slowly waking up.
Scream and yell. Call out the arrogant SOB!
It’s a tipping point. When everyone realizes that Landry won’t spontaneously combust over this, they’ll pile on :)
Neither of those links contain the complete statement as does this one.
Bravo Congressman Landry!!!
I salute you sir!
Landry for President!!
(before I get scolded it was a joke, but you never know)
A conservative populist who is not afraid to speak the truth can beat President light in the loafers.
Hey John Boehner! you listening?
Sorry he doesn’t have a email for me to offer my hardy Bravo to him from outside his district.

I agree! This honesty is certainly a breath of fresh air for us all.
Now that Congersman Landry has a few extra minutes by skipping the meeting maybe he’ll be the one to write up Obamuzzie’s Articles of Impeachment——there’s plenty of grounds. Try naming a combatant target personally for assassination. Or failing to produce a budget. We really, REALLY need to get rid of this dumbass before ‘012.
Wow, I guess the Republican can rent a set once in a while.
We should be seeing this type of thing constantly, not once every few months or even a year or so.
Boehner is tearing up over it.
Use ZIP Code 70360.
That’s going to leave a mark!

AMEN!!! This Dumbass was too stupid to legitimately get into Harvard Law or graduate! He was clearly sponsored by big Donors, most likely the Saudi Family of Saud. Obozo couldn’t write a book or a real sentence! so he had his best friend, the Pentagon Bomber and Avowed Guity terrorist, Bill Ayers create the work of Fiction, “DREAMS FROM MY DRUNKEN, POLYGAMOUS, ILLEGAL ALIEN, HARVARD FLUNKOUT
ALLEGED FATHER!” We now have the teleprompter Presidency, the guy is too Illiterate and empty suited to provide his own words and beliefs, he is a terrible Liar, its so easy to see thru his bullcrap and objective of destroying AMERICA!
May America wake up to this Enemy of America and Freedom!
Pass the pig and some lipstick? /s =.=
To everyone in Louisiana:
Landry’s Congressional district is dissolved in 2012, and he is up against the insider scumbag Boustany to see who represents the new 3rd district.
Make sure this guy wins the primary!
Well spoken. He has the good sense and taste to call a spade a spade.
My goodness gracious, this is a thing of utter beauty!
It’s like Benjamin Netanyahu holding Ozero down while Cong Landry smacks him around and then a certain tour bus rolls over him just to make sure he doesn’t get back up. All metaphorically speaking, of course. If this keeps up, more of our GOP politicians are going to find their balls.
