“I met with every single caucus for 1-1/2 hours each,” Obama said.
“Republican Senators, Democratic Senators, Republican House, Democratic House. I’ve met with the leaders multiple times. At a certain point they need to do their job.”
He said that too many senior members of Congress “say a lot of things to satisfy their base or get on cable news,” but it is now time to change.
“Hopefully leaders will rise to the occasion and do the right thing for the American people. Call me naïve but my expectation is that leaders are going to lead."
Obama made it clear that the debt crisis has been caused by measures passed by Congresses in the past and the current one cannot walk away.
“This isn’t a situation where Congress is going to say ‘okay we won’t buy this car or we won’t take this vacation.’ They took the vacation, they bought the car and now they’re saying ‘maybe we don’t have to pay or we don’t have to pay as fast as we said we were going to pay.’
“That’s not how responsible families act. And we’re the greatest nation on earth and we can’t act that way."

Is he serious? Is this guy incapable of taking the blame for any thing? I am actually surprised he didn't blame it on President Bush. That's seems to be his favorite scapegoat.
Obama and his family have spent how much money on their vacations? What the hell does that man know about family responsibility? He is clueless. The Obama's have spent millions on their vacations. Just to mention a few. Recently, Mrs. Obama has spent over $500,000 on her South Africa trip. Then there was the Hawaii trip which cost the taxpayers over $1.4 million dollars, then the trip to Asia (India) over $200 million a day, then of course Michelle Obama's trip to Spain estimated over $375,00,. And the trip to Europe no amount has been disclosed.
Truly fed up with the monarch's in the White House.
