President Obama says he is "amused" when people say he needs to get more involved in the debt crisis talks currently being led by Vice President Joe Biden.

"If you know you have to do something, just do it. And I have to say, I am very amused when I start hearing comments about 'well the President needs to show more leadership on this.' Let me tell you something: Right after we finished dealing with the government shutdown, averting a government shutdown, I called the leaders here together. I said we have to get this done," President Obama said at a press conference this afternoon.

Obama told Congress it is up to them and "they need to do their job."

"Now's the time to go ahead and make the tough choices, that's why they're called leaders," he said.

That's some top-notch leadership there. Calling people on the phone and telling them to do their job. That's tough sleding there. I wonder if he made the call from his golf cart?

At this point, who will follow?

Leaders need a team and he has none. The gig is up on him. He knows it thats why he has already done the new blame game, starting to divide/lie/scare tactics....and how long before elections?

All good and well...except Obama was a part of congress and introduced nothing of the sort.
