Skip to comments.Obama: I Donít Care if Debt Battle 'Brings Down My Presidency'
Posted on 07/14/2011 12:42:57 PM PDT by bestintxas
The chances of a negotiated agreement on raising the debt ceiling took a sharp nosedive when President Barack Obama stormed out of a meeting with GOP leaders after a heated exchange with House Majority Leader Eric Cantor.
Eric, dont call my bluff, the president reportedly said as he left the table late on Wednesday after Cantor repeatedly called for a short-term debt ceiling hike. Ive reached my limit. This may bring my presidency down, but I won't yield on this."
Obama is also said to have told Republicans that no other president not Ronald Reagan would have sat through such long negotiations with them.
He shoved back and said Ill see you tomorrow, and walked out, Cantor said after the meeting.
As he left, Obama complained that Republicans are focused on positioning and political posturing, rather than trying to find an answer to the debt crisis.
The two sides are due to meet again on Thursday afternoon, just 19 days before the Treasurys Aug. 2 deadline for increasing the $14.3 trillion limit.
It will be the fifth day in a row that the president has led talks that have included the leaders of both parties in the House and Senate.

One suspects he was that angry and will reconsider when his handlers get a hold of him.
I imagine he’s already looking forward to the big bucks he’s going to make traveling the world and shooting off his bigass commie month once he’s out of office. What a slug.
And this would be a bad thing???????
Obama is the absolute worst thing to happen to America - ever.
Obama and I finally agree on something.
(’Cept I don’t care if anything brings his presidency down.)
I’d gladly pay higher taxes just to get this marxist clown out of the White House right now
bought and paid for
We don’t either.
They are following your lead Zero. Punk.
That makes two of us, Mr. President. In fact, I hope it does bring down your presidency. Something’s got to...
I do care.
I want it to bring him down.
With a crash.
(I just hope that the Obama-stuff doesn’t splatter much...’cuz it’ll take a hazmat team to remove all that infectious lib-stuff.)
He seems to have the attention span of a gnat with ADD.
Liar Liar tail on fire......
Bravado from wee wee’d up Herman.
Ah but he has the more effective weapon, media whoredom who will lie for him at the drop of a hat. We passed guillotine fixes long ago. There are now too many liberal liars working the media and teaching more in the lieberal universities every day.
He had to leave the room for his cocktail drug to prevent him from meltdown.
