Pathetic excuse for a leader.
President Obama’s budget will probably be released in March, White House press secretary Jay Carney said Thursday, but has been delayed in part by “manufactured crises” including sequestration.
“The series of manufactured crises around budget issues, certainly has resulted at least in part in those experts in the administration who work on those issues having to spend a lot of time dealing with those crises rather than on that,” Carney said during his daily briefing. “But that’s part of the job and they’re working on the budget.”
By law, presidents are required to release their budgets on the first Monday in February, but it was clear before then that Obama’s budget would be late. There were expectations from Capitol Hill that the budget would arrive by the end of the month, but with Thursday ending the month, it’s clear that won’t happen.
Obama has delivered his budget on time just once, in 2010.
