“I know this is an election year but it’s not an excuse for inaction”

Barack Obama

Amazing. Simply amazing. The man who’s spent over three years in perpetual campaign mode,  interspersed with frequent vacations and endless golf, is now lecturing people about not doing their jobs.

Does he really think people are buying this crap?

Speaking at the University of Albany, Obama mapped out a what he called a “handy little ‘to-do’ list” for Congress, while swiping Republicans on Capitol Hill for standing in the way of his agenda during a down economy.

“The only way we can accelerate the job creation that’s needed is through Congress,” Obama said during a 20-minute speech. “There’s no excuse for inaction. There’s no excuse for dragging our feet. None.”

I know this is an election year but it’s not an excuse for inaction,” Obama said.

It’s OK if he’s inactive. After all, he’s clearly in over his head and, well, he’s got fundraisers and parties to attend.

Obama’s tone turned wry at one point in his presentation as he said he was keeping his plan short to ensure lawmakers had the time to focus on it.

“I’m not trying to overload Congress here,” Obama said before adding that his five point plan is “about the size of a post-it note so every member of Congress should have time to read it.”

Unlike his ObamaCare law, which clearly he never read, nor did anyone who voted for it.

The Hill says he’s being sarcastic. The rest of us call it being an asshole.

Maybe while he’s at it he can see if Harry Reid has any interest in passing a budget after three years.

Meanwhile, future President Romney chided the hapless man-child for living in a cartoon-like fantasy world.

“Julia progresses from cradle to grave, showing how government makes every good thing in her life possible. The weak economy, high unemployment, falling wages, rising gas prices, the national debt, the insolvency of entitlements — all these are fictionally assumed away in a cartoon that is produced by a president who wants us to forget about them,” Romney said in an address in East Lansing, Mich.

What does it say about a president’s policies when he has to use a cartoon character rather than real people to justify his record? What does it say about the fiction of old liberalism to insist that good jobs and good schools and good wages will result from policies that have failed us, time and again?”

    The president is a cartoon character. It’s just natural for him to assume everyone else is too.

    So did President Snide decide to finally listen to his deficit commission? Or to approve the Keystone pipeline? No? Thought not.
