VINEYARD HAVEN, Massachusetts (Reuters) - A vacationing President Barack Obama accused Congress on Saturday of holding back the U.S. economic recovery by blocking "common sense" measures he said would create jobs and help growth.
In remarks recorded on Wednesday on his campaign-style bus tour in Illinois and aired during his holiday in Martha's Vineyard, Massachusetts, Obama said the stalled construction, trade and payroll tax bills could give a boost to the economy.
"The only thing preventing us from passing these bills is the refusal by some in Congress to put country ahead of party. That's the problem right now. That's what's holding this country back," the president said in his weekly radio address, which is also transmitted on the Internet.

I’m on a $50,000.00 a week vacation, but since I’m there for 10 days, it will be $70,000.00 and I’m eating LOBSTER.....and it’s all Congress’s fault!!!
What a bullshit artist. Too bad he wasted a career as president when he could have been a killer used car salesman.
This punk is the most surreal piece of work and I look forward to his losing it when this tripe is questioned during the campaign. This turd doesn’t think he has to answer for anything.
What would he do without Bush, congress, Tea party, Casey Anthony, George Anthony, Cindy Anthony, Joes Biaz, Cheeny Mason to Blame?
300,000 illegals getting a pass should really boost employment rates.......what frig’en AH.
A truly sick man. Completely predictable.
I think about ways to improve our economy, and get America working again, all of the time. Before a drive, before a long iron, even before a putt. Before my gourmet dinner, before ice cream and pie, before I brush my teeth. All of the time, constantly, 24/7.
Add Luck & Japan Earthquake to the list. . . . .
nobama is such an anti-Free-America putz. Does anyone pay any attention to his spouted drivel?
Won't wash. What was holding back the messiah when he had both houses for two years?
Oh yeah, how the hell do you define ‘common sense’? As things that have never worked in the history of man?
Add global warming, polar shift towards Russia, solar flares, and the Amish folk.
Even though he is the president he thinks he is a casual observer to politics on the sidelines.
Congress is holding it back. So, until they do something I am just going to sit down and wait. They have my number. Call the cel, I might he out of town for a couple of weeks.
What exactly is holding up the trade bills? Don’t they date from the Bush years?
And he’s still on the hunt for “common sense” and keeps the blame game alive.
