Here’s an update on POTUS’ challenge to Congress to join him in taking on the debt ceiling impasse without delay.

President Obama Yesterday:

“They’re in one week, they’re out one week, and then they’re saying, ‘Obama’s got to step in — you need to be here?’ I’ve been here,” he said “You stay here. Let’s get it done.”

And today:


Harry Reid did cancel the Senate’s vacation next week, but something tells me the president’s upcoming weekend and week of the 4th will be chock full of golf.

In a related story, Mark Halperin has apologized for using Sen. Durbin’s first name to describe what he thought about Obama’s press conference performance yesterday.

Apropos flashback quote: “Whatever scum did this, not one man on this force will rest for one minute until he’s behind bars. Now, let’s grab a bite to eat.” –Lt. Frank Drebin
