Just don’t yell a question at him. He told the press guy that there will be no pics or questions before the meeting b/c “Obama doesn’t like being yelled at”. Really - no lie.

No questions b/c “it’s a circus”. Really.

Ofraudo really is breaking up. My bet is he will get questions yelled at him sooner or later and that he’ll blow.

tee hee hee

Its not a press conference when it consists of preselected questions offered up by lapdog journalists. Its a campaign expense paid for by the taxpayers.

Well he did say to Cantor and the rest he would do just that if they didn't yield to his way. But what it's really about is "showtime"....."campaign time"...."it's all ablout me time". He's doing exactly what he did when pushing thru Obamacare. It isn't about what's good for the country, as we all know, it's about HIS WIN he's itching for. Golly I have such disdain for the man. First Pres. I can say I more than dislike. No words for what his antics are.

He’s learned a new word and is anxious to show it off without using the teleprompter.

Information content will still be zip, zero, nada.

It’s Obama, after all.

I hope this isn't an announcement of an agreement based upon the MCConnell/Reid plan which sounds like giving Obama the authority to raise the debt now in exchange for a list of planned cuts over time and wherever he wants them. The various votes on the plan reductions, possible veto and 2/3 requirement for veto override also sounds like ways to cloak that Obama has the ultimate authority.

There's been so much outcry against this I doubt they'll go there. If they do we'll be done sooner than later. Nobody should be giving a Pres. that power....and can they? No matter, they've already surpassed all constitutional authority..the constitution cannot stand unless the people use it....so far it's just words on paper...the power of it comes from use...way past time for our congreemen to use it.

How can you lower the deficit while raising the debt limit? That’s like saying I will decrease my credit card debt by asking for a higher limit on the card.

Did Hussein, in his MANY years at Harvard, ever learn about this VERY simple concept:

Seriously, what does this economic dunce think he can accomplish? Is this his way of taking his message to the American people? What about ONE YEAR AGO today when he said "Give it to me" regarding the economy? What about his Chair Poodle, Debbie Wasserdork Schmuck who said Democrats "own the economy"?

He really is beginning to swirl down the commode of relevancy. All he has now is calling press conferences because he has no ability to accept reality.

I doubt they caved.

Like someone on another thread said, I’m paraphrasing, “I’ve been involved in tense negotiations, and when one party starts to act angry and threatening, they know they’re losing.”

I think Hussein knows he has lost.
