WASHINGTON (AP) - Testy lawmakers pointed fingers at one another and President Barack Obama on Thursday as negotiations over raising the national debt limited entered a perilous endgame. Wall Street eyed the standoff with growing anxiety, warning of catastrophe if the U.S. defaults on its obligations.
Obama's blunt declaration that "enough is enough" as Wednesday's talks ended did nothing to quell the rancor as a new day of positioning and posturing began.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid took to the Senate floor early in the day to snipe that House Republican Leader Eric Cantor shouldn't even be part of the talks anymore, calling him "childish." And not long after, Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell stood to serve notice that the debt problem belonged squarely in Obama's lap.
"Republicans will not be reduced to being the tax collectors for the Obama economy," McConnell said. "Don't expect any more cover from Republicans on it than you got on health care. None."
None of it was a promising prelude to negotiations scheduled to resume at the White House on Thursday afternoon, less than three weeks before an Aug. 2 deadline for increasing the government's borrowing authority.
Obama is demanding that budget negotiators find common ground by week's end, as the financial world watches with increasing anxiety.

Harry Reid = Senile
Democrats and their illegitimate offspring in the MSM wrote the book on childishness. Just take a look at MSNBC and the Frauds on Pennsylvania Avenue.
Harry is such an ingrate. Cantor is doing his best to save the Socialist Programs. What thanks does he get. A slap in the face.
Well that was certainly respectful and mature of ole Dingy.
Wait Harry! It wasn’t Cantor who started pouting and stomped out of the negotiations when he didn’t get his way. It was YOUR BOY Hussein 0bama.
I guess to the Cryptkeeper living humans all look like children.
Harry Reid has a high, whiny voice anyway. Talk about sounding childish...
Hey Senator Reid, your weekly envelope from The Mustang Ranch arrived in today’s mail.
Cantor is the only one in the room that understands the problem and the solution. So reid trys to expel him so all is left is dumbasses.
“You’re a doody-head”! - Dingy Reid
Though that only applies when he speaks above a whisper. I don’t know how long it’s been since I’ve found myself shouting “Speak up, sir!!” It’s part and parcel of how quintessentially creepy he’s become, and more of the insulting behavior that now typifies every Democrat utterance, whispered or spoken aloud.
They need to be flushed down the Potomac at the first opportunity.
If so, Reid must have used Obama as the role model.
They are so desperate that all they have left is name calling? How long before they pull the big guns out and spin this so they can call everyone a Racist????
01/29/09: Obama to GOP: I Won
07/14/11: Obama: I Won’t Sign Any ‘Stop-Gap’ Debt Deal
“we’re gonna meet every single day until we get this thing resolved.”
“will not sign a 30-day or a 60-day or a 90-day extension,” and will not consider any “temporary stop-gap resolution to this problem. This is the United States of America, and we don’t manage our affairs in three-month increments.”
You made the mess, Obama, you fix it!
It’s called “projection”!
I have to laugh everytime I think about what the knee pad media would say about all the crap Obama does if he was Conservative...
Yes. Nancy Pelosi herself promised a new level of Democrat childishness when she was predicting the Democrat takeover of the House in November 2006:
"The gavel of the speaker of the House is in the hands of special interests, and now it will be in the hands of America's children."
She and Harry and Barry have more than fulfilled that promise.
