The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Don't you mean, "surprised?" Are you surprised the WH is surprised?
Is “Surprised” the Obama 2.0 version of “Unexpected”?
I still expect that the GOP will wimp out again, but notice something. The Leftists in the Senate and White House are getting a bit arrogant.
Arrogance equals temporary.
” . Its a serious blow to his credibility.”
It worked like a charm during the first 4 years ...
So why would he do anything different? It worked!!! Change requires not simply words but true intentions. If we buy lies then we will get lots of them coming our way.
If you fool me once, shame on you ... if you fool me twice or a dozen or multiple times shame on me!!!
I hadn’t heard about them wanting to give the President unilateral control of the debt ceiling.
Another unconstitutional dictator - like power grab from the Stalinist wanna be.
Obama is communist scum.
Must have been some of that “nervous” laughter the shrinks mention now an then....but then again, maybe they’ve been reading Alinsky...he always said the enemy cannot stand being laughed at!!!!!
I could never be a senator.
I’d counter offer by climbing up on the table, dropping my drawers and leaving a steaming pile right in from of Turbo Tax Timmy.
All hail King Obama, our beloved dictator. /s/
I laugh every time I look at Geithner...he’s a buffoon.
Of course part of the problem here is that Obama lacks any sense of shame whatsoever.
Well the vice president laughed when Paul Ryan presented some ideas from his plan.
This is going to be the media story for the next two months during the negotiations — the GOP “laughed” at Obama’s proposals, as if the GOP isn’t serious or isn’t willing to negotiate. Remember during the budget negotiations in the 90s, how Newt Gingrich’s alleged temper tantrum over not being seated at the front of Clinton’s plane became the story of how the GOP was being childish during those negotiations.
Anyone who has negotiated knows this is a farce...McConnell has to understand these obama proposal are designed to fail..
Obama wants to go over the cliff...there is very little downside for him
The laughter wasn’t an indication of surprise.
There is no reason for anybody to be surprised.
True enough. We have always known that the Democrats want higher taxes AND unlimited spending.
What I’d like to know is why GOP Congressional leaders are agreeing to meet with Obama’s cabinet members on these issues.. the talks should be with Obama directly. If Obama sends a cabinet member or staffer, the Boehner and McConnell should send their own staffers to meet with them.
In a way it’s understandable. After serving as a US Senator and then 2 years into his first term as President he was surprised to learn there’s no such thing as a “shovel ready job”.
