Obama: still blaming after all these years

The incumbent President of the United States has decided to lay off blaming his predecessor for the nation’s sorry economic and fiscal situation and is now blaming someone else:

Facing an end of the week deadline, President Barack Obama said Monday that Congress can avert sweeping across-the-board cuts with “just a little bit of compromise,” as he sought to stick lawmakers with the blame if the budget ax falls.

Obama’s always trying to stick someone else with the blame.  He tries to pin the blame on Congress even while, as Jim Geraghty reports, he “has not met any congressional leaders face-to-face to discuss avoiding sequestration yet.

If he really wanted to avoid these cuts, he’d been holding regular meetings with these leaders.  Seems he’d rather blame Congress than sit down with its leaders.

And this from the guy who four years ago told Jay Leno that one thing he wanted “to break is a pattern in Washington where everybody is always looking for somebody else to blame.

Physician, heal thyself.



  1. Obama, accept any blame for anything?


    Never happen. I would sooner expect my pet pug to look up at me with her huge bug-eyes and explain Quantum Mechanics to me than to have Zero admit that any of this is his fault.

    I mean, he lies about who put the idea of this sequester out there. He has demonstrated time and again that he is unwilling to compromise (“I get that for free”), and he has the audacity to say CONGRESS should compromise? After bad-mouthing them publicly?

    I’d have ended with “Hypocrite, heal thyself,” personally 🙂

  3. First of all, sequester reductions are <2.5% of the spend — it is ludicrous to say this will bring the government and economy to its knees.

    Second, there is usually plenty of opporunity to cut non-people related spend and I bet government is no different — they should be able to find ways of cutting costs without sacrificing major services.

    Third, they had two months to plan hoiw they would get these reductions — they have an obligation to the nation to plan and do it in a way that is least disuptive. Trying to peanut butter cuts after they had time to plan is irresponsible.

    Fourth, if they can't cut 2.5% without imploding all over the place, does it give anyone any confidence that the government will be able to cut any spending ever?

    I could go on… this is a joke.
