Obama’s Answer For Debt Negotiations? ‘Sitting on His Patio’ and ‘Playing Golf’

Let’s move! … Our debt negotiations to the golf course.

A reporter today posed a question about whether or not the President had developed the relationships necessary with members of Congress to avoid a debt deal collapse last year.

Specifically, the reporter was referring to excerpts and reports from Bob Woodward in his new book, The Price of Politics.

“Gaps” in President Obama’s leadership contributed to the collapse of a “grand bargain” on spending and debt last year, with the president failing to cultivate congressional relationships that may have helped him break through Republican opposition, author Bob Woodward told ABC News’ Diane Sawyer. 

Woodward’s reporting in his new book, “The Price of Politics,” reveals a president whom he said lacked the “stamina” in turning personal relationships with congressional leaders into action the way some of his predecessors have done. 

“President Clinton, President Reagan. And if you look at them, you can criticize them for lots of things. They by and large worked their will,” Woodward told Sawyer.”On this, President Obama did not.”

So how did Press Secretary Jay Carney counter the argument that President Obama was not committed to debt negotiations?  (h/t Gateway Pundit)

Carney:   “It’s a funny conclusion to reach given how many hours the President spends with leaders of Congress of both parties in these negotiations, including sitting on his patio, including playing golf, including you know, at the residence…”

And here we thought all this time that he was simply golfing over 100 times in the last four years, when in reality he was working hard on debt negotiations.
I’m wondering if we can now be compensated at our jobs for time spent golfing and sitting on our patio.
Take a listen to the clip, at one point it sounds like Carney is about to say Obama spends hours ‘sitting on his potty’.  That’s a negotiation I don’t care to hear about…
