Breakfast Scramble (Sunday)

DavidL's Breakfast Scramble
Harry S. Truman: “The buck stops here.”

Barack Hussien Obama: “The buck passes here.”

Roger Simon, Politico [1]:

President Barack Obama said Friday that some members of Congress are being hypocritical [2] when it comes to blaming the White House for its handling of the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

In an interview with POLITICO, the president said: “I think it’s fair to say, if six months ago, before this spill had happened, I had gone up to Congress and I had said we need to crack down a lot harder on oil companies and we need to spend more money on technology to respond in case of a catastrophic spill, there are folks up there, who will not be named, who would have said this is classic, big-government overregulation and wasteful spending.”

Buck Passer is now blaming members of Congress with whom he  did not meet. and with whom he did not talk for what they did not say.
Hat tip:  Sister Toldjah [3].
More Vladimir, Red State [4]:

Seems like our Commander-in-Chief feels that it’s not necessary to engage another being in conversation, because with his superior intellect, he’s able to discern what they’re going to say, without their having said it!

And then he blames them for what he thinks they would have said!

My Star Trek days were long ago, but even Spock had to come into physical contact with the party on the other end of the Vulcan mind-meld, if I recall correctly.

No that is not spock.   Rather Obama has become the Maureen Dowd President, who reacts on what he only imagines other people, with real brains think.
