The founding fathers were not lazy and stupid, and assumed future Presidents wouldn't be either. They didn't count on the 0rganizer, and the idiots who make excuses for him.
Because the golfing campaigner spends no time talking to people smarter than him, nothing has gotten done.
His budgets get no votes from either side. He hasn't passed a budget since he was elected, and all you idiots do is make excuses for the affirmative action recipient.
Oh my... You still don't get it do you?

The president is only required to submit a budget, it doesn't matter if the budget he submits is only a dollar or a trillion, The president is simply notifying the congress on how much he would like and what he intends to do with the money that is given to him from congress.

It is congress that decides to create and pass the final budget that will be used that year.

And please read a book. Before the budget acts of 1921 the president had no say in what congress gives him to spend, you can thank Harding for that. Before the act in 1974 Congress had no say in how or if the president spends the money that he is given, you can think Nixon for that.

The budget process today is not a process that was created by the founding fathers.

But if you would like we can go back to the old way of doing things. Congress just hands over money to the president without any coherent explanation on what he is going to spend it on if at all.

But I am curious in how your viewpoint on what the president can or can't do keeps changing. One post you are demanding that he obeys the Constitution and go to congress for approval and the next post you believe that he has the power to pass a budget on his own, like he is your king or something.

Getting it and voting on it are two different things. What keeps confusing you. Is it the fact no Obama budget has ever has one yes bot or the fact that Harry Reid has never produced a budget so as to really keep track of what Obama is spending.
Obama can submit a budget of $1 and he has done his job under the law, it merely the president putting to paper what he thinks the government needs and what he intends to spend for that fiscal year.

It's congress's job to allocate funds as it clearly states in the Constitution and form a budget as part of the budget process. If the congress doesn't form and pass a budget bill to pass on to the president to make into law. How is it the president's fault when he did his job?

I thought that link to the snazzy website of Paul Ryan explaining the process to you would have settled this matter to you hmm?

You stopped the argument and resorted to ad hominem insults. That's capitulation in a debate.
