Skip to comments.Obama headed out of D.C. as shutdown looms
Posted on 04/06/2011 6:25:25 AM PDT by IbJensen
A fiery President Obama insisted Tuesday that if he and congressional leaders couldnt reach a deal to avert a government shutdown, I want a meeting again tomorrow here at the White House.
I will invite the same folks that we invited today, he added. And if that doesnt work, well invite them again the day after that. And I will have my entire team available to work through the details of getting a deal done.
Obamas team may not include the president himself. Despite the impasse in Washington over federal spending, the president as of early Wednesday was scheduled to give two speeches outside of Washington: one on energy in the Philadelphia suburbs, then another Wednesday evening to a group of black political activists in New York.
If the schedule remains intact, it will be the presidents first trip outside the capital since he officially declared Monday he will seek a second term. And while Obama (D) and his aides have repeated said he will not focus on his campaign in the next few months, his schedule may contradict those words.
Obamas town hall on energy will be held at a wind turbine plant in the town of Fairless Hills in Bucks County, a well-known political bellwether in the Philadelphia area. While the city of Philadelphia overwhelmingly votes Democratic, its suburbs swing between the Democratic and Republican parties, making them crucial for Obamas 2012 campaign.

Run Bambi, Run
What gets me about this President is how he continues to make fools out of the American public, day after day.
He came out talking tough, how he was focused on the budget, how he wanted more meetings with Republican leadership. Nice sound bite.
But, instead his focus is on the campaign trail as evidenced by his schedule.
Will the American public take notice of this contradiction? No chance.

Oh, no! Not the re-invite......anything but that!
How does he expect anyone to take him seriously?
"If you need me, call me."
BTW: An old country DJ in Lawton, OK once explained how you can tell if you are "non-essential" or not. Do you have your name on a parking space at work? If not, you're "non-essential". LOL!

When the going gets tough ... the tough get going
Ribs and lobsta tonight ... mmm mm mmm
how valiant of you to add that disclaimer. LOL
Liar! Reneger! Irresponsible pretender! I suppose he wants to distance himself so he can pretend the coming shutdown has nothing to do with him.
George Washington and John Adams would be so contemptuous of him.
"I think we could have reached an agreement, but the President left town and wouldn't meet with us. The deadline came; the shutdown occurred. I wish the President had made the budget a priority, but he seemed not to care if the shutdown happened."
All he has to do is stop spending money we don’t have.
Heading to his helicopter to drop more money on worthless projects to buy more votes.
I think this is more in the line of rabble rousing than campaigning. "Political activists" - a polite way of saying racist agitators. He is such a devisive, destructive person, just like his "prophet," Mohammed (Sower of Discord).
There are simply not enough adjectives to describe this pitiful, perverted Marxist lunatic whose past life is an enigma that has apparently been unraveled by Trump operatives.
He has brought many of us to such a feeling of hate that we’ve never experienced before.
With deliberation this soldier of satan has larded his multitudinous staff with communists, homosexuals,anarchists and other perverts.
He has inserted two howling left-wing women on the Supreme Court where if he gets to appoint one more will resemble the infamous 9th.
If this was an experiment to see what would happen if a totally unknown chunk of human debris was plucked out of the filthy sewers of Chicago and dropped into the White Hut it has failed miserably.
Wonder if he is one of the non-essential gummit workers who will be cut?
