Obama: Congress has two jobs, but too ‘worried about’ ‘Rush Limbaugh’ to do them


quote:

In an exclusive interview with CNN’s Chris Cuomo on Friday, President Barack Obama said that the upcoming fight over the continuation of a resolution which will fund the government does not have to be a fight at all. He said that enough Republicans in Congress agree that seeking to defund the Affordable Care Act is a bad idea, but they are afraid of angering their base or of conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh.


quote:

“Congress doesn’t have a whole lot of core responsibilities,” Obama said. “One core responsibility is passing a budget, which they have not done yet. The other core responsibility that they’ve got is to pay the bills that they’ve already accrued.”


quote:

“How much of the lack of action in Washington do you put on yourself in terms of blame?” Cuomo asked. “Ultimately the buck stops with me,” Obama replied. “I get frustrated, and I’ve said before and I continue to say I’m willing to do whatever it takes to get Congress — and Republicans in Congress in particular — to think less about politics and party and think more about what’s good for the country.”

Constitutional "scholar" my ass.

Article 1 of the Constitution sets forth the powers/duties of the Legislative Branch and is the largest and most detailed Article in the entire document.

Article 2 (Executive) has only 4 Sections and is about 1/3 of the size of Article 1.

Obama blaming a radio entertainer for his disaster of a presidency.

You can't make this shite up.

Speaks volumes about his interpretation of the constitution.

Didn't the House pass 15 of them last year and Reid did not bring a single one to the floor?

I enjoy Rush, but even the conservatives on here all say they hate him. Why should the repubs care what Rush says if they agree with Obama? Makes it seem like a small % of conservatives actually listen to Rush.

So which clown school did Obama go to anyway?

He should be less worried about what a radio talk show host has to say and actually do the job he is paid to do.....if he is even capable.

Strange, I haven't gotten that impression at all. The only hate I've seen for Rush here is from liberals. Maybe I should spend more time on this board.

Hate may have been too strong of a word to use.

Yeah Rush is pretty deep in Obama's head right now. That and I think Obama has been advised that mentioning Rush as a boogey man helps Obama's cause. Personally, I think it makes him look very small to give the appearance that Rush is getting to him.

Hard not to bash someone who is blatanly awful. Its funny that the democratic senate is one of the major problems on passing a budget yet it is the republican house's fault, wouldn't you say?

From his previous interaction/mentions of Rush, Obama is the one who always seemed to come off as "worried" than anybody else. More twists than a pretzel.
