McConnell invites Obama to GOP lunch; president says no, thanks
The President scolds congress for not doing enough to resolve the debt issue and compares them negatively to his daughters and says that congress should forego its 4th of July recess to “do their job” and work on a solution to the debt crisis and “get it done”. The Senate forgoes its recess, as suggested and the Republicans invite him to join them for lunch to try to work on this issue but he refuses because it’s “not a conversation worth having”? Instead he flies to Philadelphia for another fundraiser?The Senate’s top Republican invited President Obama to a GOP lunch at the Capitol to discuss the ongoing dispute over the debt and related issues, but the White House on Thursday rebuffed the invitation.
A day after the president at his news conference challenged Congress and especially Republicans to move quickly on the nagging question of increasing the debt ceiling, Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-Kentucky), the minority leader, urged Obama to meet with Republicans to explain his position.
He has been AWOL on this entire issue and the day after he chastises republicans for “not doing their job” he decides his fundraiser is more important than him showing up to do his job for a change.
This guy is certain to be a one term President because the Voters are going to do their jobs in about 16 months when they throw this lazy butt to the curb and elect someone who will take the job serious.
