Donít Call My Bluff?
Flopping Aces ^ | 07-14-11 | Skookum

[VIDEO AT SITE]

The president told Eric Cantor "Don't Call My Bluff". Well, why wouldn't you call someone's bluff; especially, after they just told you they were bluffing.

The president has once again made a mockery of the IQ that is supposed to be off the charts, during the negotiations over raising the $14.3 trillion debt limit. His tough guy line that sounds more like a Pee Wee Herman character than Gary Cooper; he was obviously off teleprompter.

The perviously unknown term "off teleprompter" has become that legendary period of time, when the real wit and wisdom of Obama shines through.

The president ended the meeting with a dramatic flair, after delivering his impotent one liner, he walked out of the meeting. Republicans weren't sure whether it was dysentery or Michelle had a honey do list. Some actors just can't do improvisation.

Straight man Eric Cantor told reporters upon returning to the capitol:

“It ended with the president abruptly walking out of the meeting.”

Our Progressive Socialists tried to spin the presidential petulance to make him look like less of a spoiled child. Witless Pelosi, Democrat from San Francisco, was asked if the president ended the meeting by walking out to prevent Cantor from having the final word, replied in her typical three word response to the question:

“No. Absolutely not.”

Witless Pelosi has always felt a brief lie is superior to a long winded lie; especially, if your brain is running on fumes of brain cells long gone.

I caught that right away. "Don't call my bluff" means "I'm bluffing."

If he had said that to me, and I had been drinking a cup of coffee, I would done a spit take to end all spit takes...and then laughed my butt off.

Who does this guy think he is? Andrew Jackson?

He doesn’t understand - NO ONE is afraid of him. No one.

According to Cantor, the full quote was, "Eric, don't call my bluff."

It was another example of Obama's arrogance to call the Majority Leader by his first name while expecting everyone else to call him Mr. President.

Please call the AnointedIdiot’s bluff .... on national TV, please. One significant problem with the GOP is fail at communicating excessively with the American public. Rectify this now by calling the Anointed One’s bluff .... =.=

Obama probably sent a note to Gaddafi saying the same thing.

And to Russia.

And to Iran.

And to North Korea.

And to the Taliban.

“Don’t call my bluff.” - Barack Obama Jul 13, 2011

Why is Obama bluffing the American people?

>>I caught that right away. “Don’t call my bluff” means “I’m bluffing.” <<

I did too.

Then he said “Reagan wouldn’t sit here for this.” Or somesuch. And stormed off.

His heavy-handed hint was for the media to compare him to Reagan.

What an Obozo.

The proper response would have been “Barry, thanks for telling me you’re bluffing.”

I think Obama said it just like he meant it.

It was a direct threat just like in the old time Westerns when the crooked dealer thought his gun was faster than the guy who he was bluffing.

To me it means that if Cantor does not call his bluff he becomes owned by Obama.

Cantor has no choice, Call his bluff or go hide in a corner somewhere shaking and scared to death.

I live in Kentucky. I'm not to sure that's true of one of my Senators. His first name rhymes with "Obama's Bitch", (hint hint)

Exactly, if someone tells you they are bluffing, you SHOULD call them on it.

What is really pathetic here is watching the libs pretend this was not a really dumb a$$ statement.

And it’s *creepy* in that it demonstrates again that no one is too stupid or evil defend as long as he is a socialist with a (D) after his name.

I truly believe these people would sing his praises while being loaded onto the cattle cars.

the IQ that is supposed to be off the charts

Being "off the charts does not necessarily mean being high.

It could be off the bottom of the chart.

That makes no sense. Why would you leave negotiations by stating that your opponents must disagree with you ? That is by far the worse negotiation tactics possible. Face it. Obama has the wisdom of a child. Some of us were better poker players then Obama when we were 10 years old.

I don’t believe Obama is very bright.

I believe he has gotten by because of his particuler Social Status.Hybrid.

Lets face it. A Kenyan drunk and a Socialist Hippy cannot breed a scholar, but Affirmative Action can make him one.
