"A wise and frugal government which shall restrain men
from injuring one another, which shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government."

LA Times: Minutes after his Sept. 8 address to Congress is set, Obama bashes both houses

We will translate for the LA Times that Obama threw a temper tantrum because he lost on having his speech on the same night as the GOP Debate from the Reagan Library.  Obama caved so he gets back at both houses by sending out a snippy email to his loyal followers.  What an immature thing to do but what we have come to expect out of Obama.

What we found the most interesting of the article was the picture of Obama used in the article by the LA Times not some conservative blog.  It is a perfect picture for the article.

Obama is as thin-skinned as I have ever seen for a politician not to mention President.  Bill Clinton was the king of making jokes out of anything he lost.  He was smart enough to know that Congress has to be worked with not attacked.  Obama has none of what they called the Clinton charm at the time.

Obama became President because the media refused to vet him.  He had little experience, thin resume, but he walked on water according to the media.  Now look at the mess this Country is in thanks to Obama and the Progressives in Congress who spend and then spend some more not caring if we have enough money.

If you don't have Executive experience, you should not run for President or if you are thin skinned stay out of the race.  It is a tough job and requires people with a backbone to handle it.  Obviously Obama does not have a backbone when he decides to send an email whining about Congress.

Obama attacking the Congress for not focusing on what needs to be focused on would be laughable if he wasn't serious.  This from the guy who was playing golf while the take down of Osama was in progress and has been campaigning all over the country including his bus trip where he flew and used the $2.2M worth of buses for a few miles instead of doing his job.  If he was trying to look like he is whining because the 'mean old' Congress made him cave, he was successful.  If he is trying to play the big bad guy who is going to blame Congress for his failures as President, he failed miserably at that as well.

We would give Obama a big fat "F" for this debacle!
Minutes after his Sept. 8 address to Congress is set, Obama bashes both houses
August 31, 2011 | 7:54

Within minutes of agreeing with congressional leaders Wednesday night on an address to a joint session next week, President Obama flashed out an email to millions of supporters criticizing the chambers, their members and vowing to pressure them to enact his as yet unspecified job creation ideas. 
"It's been a long time since Congress was focused on what the American peoplObama during his address to the American Legion 8-30-11e need them to be focused on," the Democrat charged in an email with the subject line: "Frustrated."
It's not exactly clear how long "a long time" Obama was thinking of. But until midterm voters produced a historic House turnover to Republicans last November, Obama's Democratic Party controlled both houses with substantial majorities and gave him vast spending, reform and healthcare programs.
It was, at least in part, voter reaction to such legislation that produced the divided government in D.C. now. 
This evening's email is likely revealing of the strategy this White House intends to follow for the 2012 presidential election, blaming Congress for what hasn't happened in the economy and employment sectors. 
Polls show approval of Obama's economic leadership now down around 1 in 3, with 2 out of 3 feeling the country is on the wrong track. 
Speaking of his joint session address Sept. 8, Obama's email says: 
Next week, I will deliver the details of the plan and call on lawmakers to pass it. Whether they will do the job they were elected to do is ultimately up to them. But both you and I can pressure them to do the right thing. 
We can send the message that the American people are playing by the rules and meeting their responsibilities -- and it's time for our leaders in Congress to meet theirs. And we must hold them accountable if they don't.
Other than the chief executive's threats and the lousy job performance review of both parties, it looks like Obama and Congress are in for a really nice working relationship in coming months.
