This from The National Journal (emphasis mine):
The White House, burned by failed efforts to work with Republicans and dismayed by a growing perception that President Obama is a weak leader, has made the decision to put more pressure – and blame – on Congress when Obama returns to Washington after his family vacation.
So rather than actually, um, lead, the brilliant advisors at the White House are going to play the blame-game. Unbelievable. Hey champ, here's an idea - LEAD!
