Priorities! Fiscal cliff? Obama hasn’t bothered to meet with congressional leaders for 13 days

What laser-like focus! Fiscal cliff, shiscal cliff! President Obama can’t even be bothered meeting with GOP leaders.

But, hey, he’s sending out some of his lackeys instead.

And he picked up the phone! He’s super serious.

Good lapdog!

Heh. And he has time for an “I won” Lunch Summit with Mitt Romney today.

Whatever! Obama doesn’t need to meet with anyone, nor does he need to, you know, do his job. He started a hashtag and all.

    According to the news this am there was a terse phone conversation last night between Boehner and Obama. Does that qualify as a meeting?

      Not to this voter, it doesn’t.

    Geesh, people… he is working on the fiscal cliff, just yesterday he was asking moochers to tweet their congressmen to raise taxes… isn’t that enough?

  • Lisa Dean

    Maybe Obama’s rational is “If I don’t meet with them then they aren’t working with me on the budget. See it’s the Republicans fault”.

    • Albert N. Milliron

      That sounds about right

    I think we need a beer summit, or a Google town hall meeting or one of those really, really serious solutions.

    Even worse is BO and the fam are off to Hawaii again for a 21 day vacation while we are left with a trip over the cliff! Awesome.

    But, but, but….. I thought his lunch with Mitt Romney was going to fix everything!/sarc

    At lest that is what the Obama-bots in the media are going to be expounding for the next two weeks.

      …and it will be Mitt’s fault when things fall apart because 1) Mitt gave BHO bad advice or 2) Mitt withheld good advice that would have helped.

      Wait for it.

        If Obama can’t fix the country without help from Mitt, then why didn’t America elect Mitt? (Rhetorical question.)

  • Joseph Phillips

    He gets paid either way, right? Well, there ya go.

    • nc

      Even worse, he gets ELECTED either way.

      • Joseph Phillips

        Good point!

  • Thomas Collins

    Obama does not and cannot negotiate, it runs against his DNA. He is an ideologue. His “negotiating” skills consist of putting out a proposal and saying “pass this”.

  • nc

    But but but he CARES!

  • Albert N. Milliron

    …and the White House leaked the Phone call that was supposed to be private. Oh yes, lets believe the Dems will cut spending at a later date LOL

  • Robert Johnson

    Obama doesn’t want to avoid the fiscal cliff as much as he wants a PR victory against the Republicans.
