Reid says Cantor's conduct during the sensitive White House talks have shown, in Reid's words, "he shouldn't even be at the table." Reid says other congressional leaders are negotiating in good faith as an Aug. 2 deadline approaches for raising the debt limit.

That is because he was bold and spoke up to o. We need all of them to follow his lead. They are scared of anyone who speaks the truth to them, like Sarah.

This is a the latest signal that the dems have a weak hand and know it. If Cantor and the rest of the rebupbs continue to hold out, President Temper-Tantrum will fold.

Closed-door meeting: DemocRATs can make up whatever manure they want and noone can dispute it. So Zero throws a temper tantrum because he’s not getting his way, and the DemocRATs say “See? See?? Eric Cantor’s being childish!”

Of course, the Drive-Bys print whatever the DemocRATs spew.

Cantor should not be in debt limit talks

Since Reid said it, it's proof that Cantor should be there.

The daily talks ended Wednesday with Obama and Cantor clashing, and the president leaving the room.

I'd say the one leaving the room was the childish one.

Cantor should use Obama’s OWN WORDS against him:

“Elections have consequences, WE WON. You are welcome to come along for the ride, but you’ll have to sit in the back of the bus...”

As someone noted yesterday, this could cause Obama to be the first person to reach orbit without the aid of a rocket.

Reid: Cantor should not be in debt limit talks
///
i agree!

Obama has increased spending by over 40%.
tax revenues are enough to pay for about 70%.

the debt limit should NOT be increased.
the only thing Cantor should discuss with them,
is where to cut, to balance the budget.

(Bush had one year with a balanced budget,
and would have had more, if not for Iraq and Katrina.
is Obama is so awesome, he should be able to do it easy.)

get ready. The stage is just about set. Some day in the near future it will be just before midnight. Haggard looking politicians with ties undone will emerge from behind close doors with the press waiting with baited breath. Smiles, speeches, self congratulatory back patting all around. Heroes abound. Once again, they have all worked so hard to save us all with their last minute heroics and bipartisan statesmanship. Get ready folks. It’s coming. And the press will gush over the great courage shown by all to raise our taxes and increase our debt. Another magnificent performance for the people by those doing the people...I mean...doing the peoples business.

Which to me translates to ... this is exactly the guy the GOP wants at the table!

It’s all clear now. Obama took his ball and went home because Cantor is childish. Next thing you now, Reid is going to be telling us that Cantor is thin-skinned and unwilling to be contradicted by others?

And that is exactly why Cantor should be there. I don't want them to be comfortable and chummy. I want them angry, paranoid and scared. I want them nervously looking out the window for the flicker of torches and the glint of pitchforks. Do I smell hot tar?

The fact that Cantor made Sparky the Empty Suit storm out of the room like the ignorant, pampered and childish a$$ clown he is, proves that he should be there. Keep poking the thin-skinned, narcissistic pansy... maybe we'll finally see that psychopathic “Greg Stillson moment” we've all been waiting for and fully expect to happen eventually. This Marxist puke has skated without challenges HIS ENTIRE WORTHLESS LIFE!

THANK YOU NEVADA!!!

Reid's use of words is code for "Cantor, you are NOT a true Washingtonian!"

Reminds me of Pelosi's words just a few months ago:

“To my Republican friends: take back your party. So that it doesn’t matter so much who wins the election, because we have shared values about the education of our children, the growth of our economy, how we defend our country, our security and civil liberties, how we respect our seniors.”

This is a perfect time for Boehner, Cantor, and McConnell to stand in front of any camera that’s rolling and say...

“We will be happy to resume negotiations once we have the assurance that Mr. Obama will not leave prematurely and stay to see this thing to a satisfactory resolution”.

With the way Obummer acted, I WOULD NOT use the term “the President”. He lost that when he acted like a street punk that had to run away to get his bully friends (MSM) to back him up.

If anyone is childish it is this man-boy we have to call President. His words: "You need to be here. I've been here. I've been doing Afghanistan and bin Laden and the Greek crisis. You stay here. Let's get it done."

What he's been 'doing' is the back nine and doing round-robin fundraisers. He's a petulant asswipe that has had his mediocre, prehaps substandard, performance corrected via 'affirmative action' his whole damned life.

To tell you the truth, I hope every damn word Reid and Obama say about Cantor is true. I hope he interrupted, ridiculed and upset these lame-ass talks. I expect nothing less!

I want ZerO stopped! I want Reid stopped! Anything they want, I DON'T want; and I expect my representatives to make it so!

If there was anything ever so true it is this: O-B-A-M-A ..ONE BIG ASS MISTAKE, AMERICA!

Boehner needs to announce TODAY a suspension of all future talks and needs to just go back to the House and start passing bills.

You probably hit it on the head ~ Obama has a way of dealing with Jewish people that ought to have the crowd in New York and Connecticut up in arms.

The fact they're not screaming their heads off about this continuing pattern suggests they just don't get it.

There's a brainblock in there somewhere.

I would like to see the Republicans demand to know what the extra money is for in the budget. Someone should say, “So far, you have used taxpayer funds to shovel guns to Drug Cartels in Mexico, Marxists in Honduras, and God only knows what the Palestinians have done with the money you gave them. How much more money do you intend to shovel to criminals and terrorists Mr. O?”

End the talks. Period! We own the House for chrissake! Use it to advantage. Pass a long term deal with 100's of billions in necessary cuts then let the Senate and the WH figure out WTH to do with it!

There will be NO default and the only way SS checks don't go out is if obama tells the treasury not to release the funds. obama OWNS this mess...pass a bill nad make him tale possession!

We can't default and won't default. We take in 10 times our debt payment liability every month in tax revenue. TEN TIMES. The only way the US defaults is if obama and Geitner conspire to destroy our economy...but it would be so patently obvious they wouldn't dare.
