At yesterday’s press conference President Obama criticized the Congress for not working hard enough to fix the deficit.

Oh and except for the 75 golf outings, which is a record for recent presidents.
The President also implied the the Congress did not work as hard as his two daughters, explaining that the girls were the type of student who finished their homework the day before its due (which explains why the poor “goody two-shoes” get their butts kicked by bullies every day.
Speaking of goody two-shoes, today Senate Minority leader Mitch McConnell invited the President to meet with Republican party leadership and discuss their differences.
However, the President rejected the offer, White House press secretary Jay Carney said McConnell was asking Obama to visit and “hear Republicans restate their maximalist position” in the negotiations to raise the $14.3 trillion debt ceiling. “We know that position. That’s not a conversation worth having,” Carney said at his daily briefing.
Besides the President is very very busy.
The president heads to Pennsylvania Thursday evening for a fundraiser at a downtown hotel, followed by a private dinner at the home of Comcast Executive Vice President David Cohen, tickets for which start at $10,000.
And then the rest of the weekend??? Well lets just say the POTUS has plans:
