UPDATE: Drudge ran with a link to this story about how The Sack-of-Crap-in-Chief is attending meetings and is -- apparently -- still ducking issues at 70 days out:
In the wake of the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, President Obama today summoned a bipartisan group of over 20 senators to the White House to push for energy and climate change legislation.
But one thing the President did not want to talk about at the meeting was the BP disaster, a Republican source told ABC News. And that, the source said, led to a pointed exchange with GOP senator Lamar Alexander from Tennessee.
“The priority should be fixing the oil spill,” Alexander told the President, according to the source. “That's what any meeting about energy should be about.”
But when Alexander tried to interject the BP leak into the meeting, the source said, the President told the senator, “That’s just your talking point.”
Retorted Alexander, “No, it’s my opinion.”
The exchange illustrates the difficulty in getting any comprehensive energy and climate change bill passed by the Senate this year. Various proposals are floating around the Hill, but to date no bill has managed to gain enough support to get it past the 60-vote threshold. Republicans are adamantly against cap and trade proposals or any measure that puts a “price on carbon.”
This guy is a piece of work. The 800-pound gorilla in the room is defecating in the punch bowl and this guy has his head buried in the sand, said The War Planner, murdering metaphors.
I am getting the feeling that maybe this guy is not as stupid as he acts; he's just tone-deaf and has a set agenda. I guess this is how they do it in Chicago. You know, like the SCOTUS handing the Chicago handgun ban a stunning defeat and having that tool of a mayor proclaim that he was still going to pursue another handgun ban.
