ROFL
I actually had the same response when reading this. The individuals responsible to do something about jobs, the economy, taxes, budgets, deficits, are upset at Obama for their own incompetence?

Cross reference the Congressional Black Caucus with the Progressive (Communist) Congressional Caucus. You will find a number of U.S. House of Rep. members who belong to both. My Rep. is one of those who flew down to Cuba to kiss Castro's backside.

Get this through your heads folks, Congress cares about two things: Power & Money. They do not care about the folks at home whom they are supposed to represent. They do not care about the Constitution the swore to uphold and defend.

We have lost our representative Republic and are being ruled by a de-facto oligarchy.

The effers in Congress are squeezed on both sides between their constituents and the present corrupt WH administration. They are weighing which way to go, which "side" will deal them the better hand, so they can stay in position longer. What will they have to give up, whose a** will they have to kiss next, who can promise them the most for doing the least, what lies will they have to tell, etc. Maybe some are even in the process of finding their conscience...but I doubt it. Pink slip anyone?

They want to get re-elected next year. Push the blame on someone else so they can do that.

Default Angry Congress lashes out at Obama

I'm just glad that we've never had this congress-administration conflict before.

They'll cast blame at Obama to preserve their own jobs because he's an easy target and public opinion is turning against him. Obama isn't blameless, though - for the life of me I can't figure out why in the heck he just had to have Geithner as Treas Sec. Many people warned against that back in the day... links here:
