Obama and the Budget

The Washington Examiner's Conn Carroll writes:

Up until now the liberal media has been dutifully playing along with the preferred White House script that Obama is the "adult in the room" far above Washington politics. But at some point the facts will make it impossible for them to play along. It was Obama who played classic Washington politics by avoiding the tough budgetary decisions and appointed a debt commission. Then he cynically dismissed their work once they were done. Then Obama released a budget so out of touch with reality that the Senate rejected it 97-0. Then, when the House Republicans took a hard vote on a real budget scored by the Congressional Budget Office, Obama publicly rebuked House Budget Chairman Paul Ryan, R-Wis., and then presented his own plan that was so vague the CBO refused to even score it.

From Conn Carroll's Morning Examiner email:

President Obama ordered Congress to "pass this bill" more than a dozen times last night. There is just one problem: no such bill exists. After Obama's speech, White House Senior Adviser Valerie Jarrett said Obama would be drafting the legislation next week. If Obama really wanted his "American Jobs Act" to pass, he would have had the text of the legislation ready for everyone to read last night.

That explains more why Mr. Obama had to state so explicitly, "This isn't political grandstanding." If he hadn't told us so, we might have thought that getting up and giving a speech insisting "pass this bill" when the bill hasn't been written yet might qualify as that. It's almost comical.
