The reason I go after President Obama for that is he is constantly railing against Boehner. I'm not defending Boehner as much as criticizing the President for blatant partisanship. The Senate has gotten NOTHING done during his Presidency but you don't hear about that. All your hear from him is the House this, the House that. The House is passing a budget every year. That's not something special, it's something they are supposed to do by law. The Senate, by law, is supposed to as well. No one notices that, especially him. He continues to criticize the House and Tea Partiers for what he calls "bailing out the rich" when the Senate can't even execute the most basic of required functions. That's my problem concerning that issue. He should use his power as a way to push the Senate to do what it's supposed to do. He doesn't because his party controls it.
The thing is though, if he was tougher on the Ds in the Senate it wouldn't matter because the Rs in the Senate would filibuster any legislation that might reflect good on the Pres. I feel the same frustrations about the Senate not getting crap done. And I can understand where your coming from about the partisenship too, its frustrating when the politicians are more worried about criticizing the other side and their views instead of working to solve the problems that are facing the nation today. I just don't think it's 100% fair to call out the Pres. for being partisan and not say anything about the partisanship of the other side, you know.
