The National Republican Senatorial Committee released a video Thursday critical of President Barack Obama’s leadership on debt ceiling negotiations.After Obama called for Republicans to “act like leaders” and reach a deal on raising the debt limit in a press conference on Wednesday, the committee fired back with clips of the president playing golf and drinking beer.

Titled “Actions Speak Louder Than Words,” the video listed the number of times Obama has played golf as president (76), how many vacation days he has taken (48), and the number of fundraisers he has held while in the White House (149). 

It ends with a quote from Robert Samuelson column from April, “no plan to balance the budget — ever.”
