President Obama went into crisis mode yesterday and called a possible government shutdown “inexcusable.”
Obama’s focus on solving the problem (whether or not it’s a “problem” is debatable) is so laser-like that he’s… well, leaving town:
A fiery President Obama insisted Tuesday that if he and congressional leaders couldnâ€™t reach a deal to avert a government shutdown, â€œI want a meeting again tomorrow here at the White House.â€
â€œI will invite the same folks that we invited today,â€ he added. â€œAnd if that doesnâ€™t work, weâ€™ll invite them again the day after that. And I will have my entire team available to work through the details of getting a deal done.â€
Obamaâ€™s team may not include the president himself. Despite the impasse in Washington over federal spending, the president as of early Wednesday was scheduled to give two speeches outside of Washington: one on energy in the Philadelphia suburbs, then another Wednesday evening to a group of black political activists in New York.
Remember though, this is the same president who left the country just before mid-terms rather than stay in town and help explain the slaughter.
Incidentally, Obama’s speech in New York City will be to a group founded by race-baiter extraordinaire Al Sharpton, the National Action Network. Maybe Obama can remind Reverend Al that it’s almost tax time ::nudge nudge:: and to pay his fair share.
Here’s a nine-second clip dedicated to Obama’s crisis-management style:
