I am looking forward too see the Obama budget and see which loop holes and deductions he is going to close to bring in more revenue. Or what actual cuts {not projected} that he is endorsing. Lets hope it is not like the one budget that was voted on in the Senate and was shot down 99 to 0.

So, Obama was making his excuses a month ago, for violating Federal law?

In that case it's completely OK.

So you wish to ignore what past presidents have done just so you can blame it on Obama. Gotcha.

Gas prices too high....blame it on Obama.
Congress has sat on their hands instead of dealing with the budget....blame it on Obama.
Congress has made it near impossible for itself to function....blame it on Obama.
so on and so on, just make sure you blame it on Obama.

But when the next Republican is in office (not like that will happen any time soon the way you guys are going) make sure you say it isn't the Republican's fault, it was the guy before him's fault.

Don't be a mindless drone.

I have never blamed gas prices on Obama.

Obama has broken a few dozen promises that he could have done without congress. You want to treat him to a different standard and make him responsible for nothing.

Bush was a bad president. Obama is on that same path...perhaps if you and his fans would hold him accountable he would actually have to fulfill his promises.

No, no, you go on and keep blaming the president for everything, I don't mind. Were you hoping he was gonna be your God or something as he took office when we were on one of the worst falls since the Great Depression? I bet you thought we would just bounce back from that overnight.

The president does not submit a budget, he submits outlines for his plans for the nation, and read my quote in the context i responded to.

Very hypocritical.
Already said it before, the President is not required to do it. Im attacking YOU for being hypocritical because you had no problem with what passed presidents did.
