    A biased blog pulls out two pictures, turns it into an attack, and you drink the Kool-Aid they're serving.

    The first story chronologically shows the itinerary (last link) before Obama went to Texas that had no plans for a meeting with Perry. The second post chronologically shows Perry rejecting the only offer for a meeting that Obama had for Perry which was a meet and greet on the tarmac at the airport. Perry suggested that they sit down for a real meeting. The last article shows Obama agreeing to the meeting that Perry suggested. This is exactly what I said.

    The issue is, our system works when people are willing to work together. No one part of the three parts of government can unilaterally introduce or make changes to laws in this country without the cooperation with the others, and when they attempt to do so, they all deserve blame. Blame is not the problem.
    Sure, but lets face it - the House isn't going to pass anything right now unless it burnishes their re-election campaign. They continually pass bills that won't ever pass in the Senate, and they know it. And what happens when they even think about compromise - they lose primaries to TPers (ask Eric Cantor).

    Republicans aren't going to work with Obama because doing so loses them their job. And Democrats don't want to help them ram through the TPs agenda (surprise!).

    You can thank gerrymandering for the dysfunction that is Congress.

    The meeting was a compromise. Perry first wanted a photo-op at the border. Both sides rejected the other's photo-op. So nobody got the photo they wanted, and now we see the right complaining that their photo-op was rejected.

    Being in the minority gives you license to influence outcome; it does not give you license to gum up the system. The Congress has done nothing but play politics. Now that it is time to do something, they do not know how. As a body, they are incompetent. You sir, seem to be an apologist for it; perfectly content with the result.
    Are you planning on voting for your incumbents?

    you might want to do a little reading

    Out of the 195 House-passed bills that are now stalled in the Senate, 31 were written by Democrats, and many have been awaiting Senate approval for close to a year.

    Most of these Democratic bills are non-controversial. But House Democrats are stressing the importance of passing them.

    GOP House leaders and Senate Democrats have engaged in a back-and-forth blame game on the gridlock in Washington.

    House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) has set up a website showcasing all bills “stuck in the Senate." President Obama and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.), meanwhile, have criticized the House for not acting on immigration reform, which passed the Senate last year.

    But the fact that House Democratic bills are sitting in the Senate gives GOP leaders political ammunition.

    “Democratic bills, Republican bills, bipartisan bills — the House has moved scores of legislation to help hard-working families and build an America that works,” Cantor Deputy Chief of Staff Doug Heye said. “Harry Reid's do-nothing Senate must not have gotten the memo that President Obama declared 2014 a year of action.”

    Reid's office did not respond to requests for comment.

    Only half of the stalled Democratic bills have a companion measure in the Senate. All but one are being sponsored by Democratic senators. The exception is Rep. George Miller’s (D-Calif.) Protecting Students from Sexual and Violent Predator’s Act, which has a companion bill crafted by Sen. Pat Toomey (R-Pa.).

    Three of the stalled Democratic bills deal with veterans and the military.

    Rep. Chellie Pingree (D-Maine) has two House-passed bills awaiting action in the Senate. The Ruth Moore Act aims to improve the disability claims process for veterans with mental health problems due to sexual trauma experienced in the military.

    dont blame just the house

    partisan politics are everywhere

    and no one plays the game better than the president and his buddy Harry Reid

    Obama was also an incompetent community organizer. The only accomplishment Obama achieved as a community organizer on the South Side of Chicago was registering blacks as Democrats by promising free stuff.

    Then I fail to see the problem. Do you really think this is the first time a president has altered his itinerary due to external pressure of one sort or another. Incidentally, given Perry's attitude (as written all over his smug ass face in the photo that your ridiculing) and things that he has said about this president and others (having admitted to stepping in it on several occasions) it wouldn't have bothered me if Obama didn't meet with him at all, and left him out of the loop on the game plan for dealing with the problem.
