President Barack Obama placed the blame on Congress for the nation’s economic problems in two speeches Thursday. But House Speaker John Boehner is having none of it, The Hill reports
"President Obama likes to talk about being ‘the adult in the room’ — but there’s nothing ‘adult’ about political grandstanding," Boehner said in a statement Thursday.
Obama had said earlier in the day, “What we’ve seen in Washington the last few months has been the worst kind of partisanship, the worst kind of gridlock. And that gridlock has undermined public confidence and impeded our efforts to take the steps we need for our economy."
Boehner’s response: "If the president wants to do something productive, he can start by delivering on his promise to outline his own recommendations to rein in the massive deficits and debt that are undermining job creation in our country."
