Obama is once again in his community organizer (CO) mode blaming everything on Republicans and taking none of the blame for there not being any budget for the current year (that started in October of 2010) and for shutting the federal government down in the event a budget bill cannot be passed by Friday. Obama’s answer to providing leadership to avoid this budget crisis? LEAVE TOWN.
What is Obama doing that is so critical to the American People? HE IS CAMPAIGNING!
- He is having a town hall meeting on energy policy that will be held at a wind turbine plant in the Philadelphia area. I am sure wind power is much more important than insuring that we have a budget to run this country.
- Then he is off to New York to attend Al Sharpton’s anniversary of Sharpton’s National Action Network. Obama needs Sharpton to get out the Black vote in 2012.
Both events are clearly campaign engagements and have nothing to do with WORKING to solve America’s problems. But don’t worry, he has his “Team” ready to meet with Congressional leaders if they want to work on the budget.
Obama in Philadelphia said today: “At a time when you are struggling to pay your bills and meet your responsibilities, the least we can do to meet our responsibilities is produce a budget. That is not too much to ask for. That is what the American people expect of us, that’s what they deserve. You want everybody to act like adults, quit playing games and realize it is not my way or the highway”.
Obama had an iron clad majority in both houses prior to this budget year that began in October, 2010. He and Reid and Pelosi did not pass a budget because they did not want you to know, prior to the November 2010 elections, how much these three thieves were spending of your money. His is the Failure, not the current Congress. DON’T LET HIM AND THE MEDIA GET BY WITH THIS LIE.
EARTH TO OBAMA, THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES HAS A MANDATE THAT THEY HAVE TO WAIT 72 HOURS BEFORE VOTING ON BUDGET BILLS. YOU HAVE ALREADY RAN OUT OF TIME! THE GOVERNMENT WILL BE SHUT DOWN AND YOU DARN WELL KNOW IT!
I don’t think even Obama supporters get what this guy is about. He is totally absent in any meaningful discussions on the US Economy, the Federal Budget, Afghanistan, Libya, Iran’s Nuclear Program, our Energy Crisis (he does not need wind power, just put a turbine in front of his mouth), or any other of the tens of real problems facing this nation and its people.
What’s next on his schedule, a night on the town in NYC, more golf, how about another well deserved vacation!
