The president is hitting nothing but net when it comes to the pressing matter of submitting NCAA bracket projections on time (could this year be his first brick?), but he’s airballed four of his first five legally-mandated budget deadlines. Unprecedented! House Republicans T him up in a new video:
I still prefer the clip Katie and I produced for Townhall in 2011, which remains more applicable than ever two years later:
I’d forgotten about our “bold leadership” dig at his one seed cop-out. Heh. This month, Obama became the first president in 92 years (when the current law went into effect) to miss his budget date so badly that Congress was forced to initiate the process. The White House has missed its statutory and self-imposed FY 2014 deadlines; we’re now told to expect something in early April, two months late. When The One’s blueprint finally arrives, don’t expect much. He’s already expressed support for the Senate’s version, which even the Washington Post can’t defend. Whatever. Forget the super boring core responsibilities of governance, Mr. President — do you have the Hoosiers going all the way?
