REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – Is President Barack Obama’s failure to reach out to his democratic allies in Congress the reason it has become a challenge to protect him from GOP attacks?

Some House Democrats have expressed their frustration with what they consider a lack of communication from the Obama government.

A number of democratic leaders accuse the president of not reaching out to his allies about his plans on big issues like immigration.

They say even after close to six years in office, Obama’s working relationship with lawmakers remains shaky.

Rep. Gerry Connolly of Virginia asked, “Is it just lack of full staffing and resources?”

Rep. Raul Grijalda of Arizona told Obama: “Call us in when you’re developing something, so we can give you our ground-level reality check about how this is going to work.”

Rep. Jim Moran of Virginia added “I don’t think this president, this quarterback, invests all that much time and effort into the care and feeding of his offensive line.”

    Mr. Zero hasn’t a clue what most true Americans want. It is Constitutional government as opposed to the tyranny his form of government will put us in. He is a dictator at heart and his abuse of power clearly shows that. While it is clear he cares not what non-democrats might want but I firmly believe he has gone beyond what any sensible democrat wants. WHY are they afraid to speak up? BHO could complete his destructive agenda before they get him stopped. It is important someone step up to the plate and save this Nation!
