Says it all, doesn't it? Change we can believe in.
I do laugh quietly to myself when the peeps get going with they shoulda consulted congress.....like that would have been a one day event! Every damn teabag committee would have had to hold hearings, it would have dragged on for months....and nothing would get done. Just like the budget....it would have languished in a week at a time land.
Plus Congress was on VACATION! And they have stayed on vacation for the following week. Should President Obama have waited for them to come back into session? I don't think that would have worked.
I just saw Jane Harmon on MSNBC complaining about this. She said that since Congress was on vacation, some of them had to call in to the meeting the President had with them and some of them had "phone lines" that weren't very good. She them mentioned that one time President Reagan had sent planes to pick up Congress people to consult with them on some military action.
It is all about them.
It reminded me of this tweet from Josh Marshall a couple of days ago:
