Mr. and Mrs. Blunt and Cranky are in an undisclosed but warm and sunny location, getting a much-needed vitamin D infusion. So here is a short post about the Prexy’s news conference today:

Is this humble blogger the only person on Planet Earth who noticed that almost every question asked of President Obama should have been directed at Congress? The Debt Ceiling, gun control laws, almost everything being asked was a topic that is the responsibility of the Legislative Branch, and about which the Executive can do damn-all.

On the other hand, if the reporters had asked Congress, they wouldn’t have gotten straight answers, so what the hey. Ask the wrong guy, ask the right guys, nothing’ll get done either way. So sure, ask Obama. Why not?
