    Not one peep from the man that never let's a crisis goto waste. Well, here is a crisis that actually impacts the American peoples wallet and where is Obama? I guess there isn't anything in it politically for him eh?

    On the other hand he could show some "ACTUAL LEADERSHIP" and call on congress to return and find further savings to show the world markets, lenders and ratings agencies that were serious about getting our fiscal house in order.

    why can't congress come back on their own?

    why do you think obama should have to ask them to come back and do their jobs?

    Are you saying congressmen and senators are not grown ups and can't do the right thing unless papa obama tells them to?

    that's nutty gramps!

    ObamaCare Price States $60 bil;Price Prez Fundraiser $71,600;S&P Downgrade Priceless

    Tip: HotAir

    The parties just keep coming for birthday-boy Barack Obama. After a Chicago fund-raiser the night before he turned 50 and a White House party on the big ay, a third event is now planned for New York.This time it is high-powered movie mogul Harvey Weinstein who will host the president at his Big Apple home, reports the New York Post.

    And despite being described as “a small dinner and discussion” on the invitation, it will raise $2 million for the president’s reelection campaign and the Democratic National Committee. According to the NYP, the cost per couple to chow down is $71,600.

    Poor guy
    all that nasty budget talk kept him from fund raising

    They could, but the highlight is lack of leadership. Again!

    Dems forced the low deal.

    Because if we acknowledge they can, we can't attack Obama. And that's no fun!

    What's nutty about expecting our leader to show some leadership? He had no problem begging the people to help him, so why not congress? Hell, he could make a speech directly from the golf course.

    Mere rightwing political theatre from said congressman, a pathetic and shameful attempt by the right to make political hay out of a crisis they created.

    The House had its opportunity to conduct itself responsibly and failed.

    And the Constitution mandates Congress to take lead addressing the Nation’s financial issues, not the Executive.

    of course he could use his backup plan

    you think his plea would be heard? If he speaks up and asks, that's a GUARANTEE that repubs won't show up.

    get real.

    congress- needs to do their own jobs.....they shouldn't need a president to ask them or beg them to do what they are paid to do.

    end of story....in my book.
