Skip to comments.Obama calls Boehner, rules out debt negotiations
Posted on 09/21/2013 4:09:45 PM PDT by afraidfortherepublic
President Barack Obama is once again warning House Republicans that he will not negotiate over a debt-ceiling increase, even as the U.S. government moves closer to its borrowing limit.
Obama called Speaker John Boehner Friday night to reiterate his hard-line stance. The Ohio Republicans office said the president called to say he wouldnt negotiate with him on the debt limit.
Given the long history of using debt limit increases to achieve bipartisan deficit reduction and economic reforms, the speaker was disappointed but told the president that the two chambers of Congress will chart the path ahead, a Boehner aide said in an email. It was a brief call.
A White House official said Obama spoke to both Boehner and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi.
The President telephoned Speaker Boehner and told him again that the full faith and credit of the United States should not and will not be subject to negotiation, the official said in a statement provided to POLITICO. The President reiterated that it is the constitutional responsibility of the US Congress to pass the nations budget and pay the nations bills.

I just don’t beleive it. Pelosi said obama was the least partisan and most willing to compromise president in her life time.
There is nothing to negotiate. Obamacare is a constitutional conservative Tea a Party red line.
Well then, that’s settled. Okay, sorry we bothered you.
Pelosi can’t remember past her last LSD hit.
So what's the problem?
We stop borrowing and start paying down the debt ... "paying down the nation's bills"
Please don’t go wobbly and cry, Boehner. Please! Defund every POC sandwich We the People are bearing on our backs.
Cool. What do we need him for?
It’s not their responsiblity to borrow more money to create more bills that will require borrowing more money to not pay either. I wish Boehner had a pair but we know better. John will cave again. No surprise here.
So the man-child who would negotiate with Assad, Putin, and the Iranians won’t sit down and talk with the leader of the GOP???
What an ass-hat!
Boner should have replied:
“OK, fine with me.”
Then boner should have gone home and read this:
The house does not need obumber or Reid. All they have to do is sit on their hands, play cards or whatever until the dims beg for money.
Let the country shut down. Tell zer0 FUBO.
Show Obama how a real Government works. It seems he doesn’t know. while you are at it tell him to go F himself.
If I were Boehner, I’d warn Buckwheat that he don’t got no Muslims to back his skinny ass up, and his black slaves on the democrat plantation don’t know that you don’t hold your glocks sideways, even you got 2.2 billion rounds of cop-killer bullets. I’s also remind Buckwheat, if I were Boehner, that the latest poll shows that blacks fear these three things most:
2. Dark forests.
So if’n Buckwheat wants to get crazy azz crackers in fly-over America, he starts at a distinct disadvantage. Ain’t no muslims in deep, dark forests here in America, and black folk don’t like trees that cast dark shadows neither.
Too bad boner didn’t tell him to screw off. (Uh, warn his majesty that things may not go as plotted)
So let me get this straight. Zer0 picked up the phone and called Boner to tell him he is not going to negotiate? So don’t negotiate. Why bother calling.
I think we may end up with a very interesting 2014 election season in which a lot of Democrats go out of their way to distance themselves from Barack Obama and paint him as an uncompromising leftist @sshole.
