The law dictates that the president is supposed to submit a budget by a certain day. Today is that day. Did Barack Obama submit a budget? No.
Instead, he was busy talking about gun control in Minnesota.
This is the fourth time in five years that Obama has failed to meet the budget deadline. Think he forgot? Nah. The same rules that applied to other presidents do not apply to him. And even though this is a critical time for our economy, with our debt topping $16 trillion, Obama doesn’t seem to care.
House Speaker John Boehner noticed, though. He slammed the president for missing the date and pushing it to a month late or more. Where is the presidential leadership, he asked?
Think this would have happened under a President Mitt Romney?
Didn’t think so.
