Bob Woodward of The Washington Post said if there is a downturn or a collapse resulting from the failure of CR or debt ceiling negotiations it will be on President Obamas head Monday on Morning Joe.
"Its on the presidents head, hes got to lead, hes got to talk Woodward said:
BOB WOODWARD: Can I enter in here just for a moment because I think its a good question. And there is something the president could be doing. He said he will not negotiate on the debt ceiling. A reasonable position. I will not be blackmailed he said. But he should be talking. They should be meeting, discussing this, because as I think Steve Ratner showed earlier, the American economy is at stake and the president, if there is a downturn or a collapse or whatever could happen here thats bad, its going to be on his head. The history books are going to say, we had an economic calamity in the Presidency of Barack Obama. Speaker Boehner, indeed, is playing a role on this. Go back to the Great Depression in the 1930s. Ill bet no one can name who was the speaker of the House at the time. Henry Thomas Rainey. Hes not in the history book its on the presidents head. Hes got to lead. Hes got to talk. And the absence of discussion here, I think, is baffling element.

This guy is a thorn in Obama’s butt
And Harry Reid...that little Curmudgeon wants a shut down so they can lay it at the GOP’s feet. The public is on to this type of bullchit politics so hopefully if they shut it down for a few days the people scream to high heavens...
Obama needs to give him the Red Pill from Obamacare. Instand death.
“... Harry Reid...that little Curmudgeon wants a shut down so they can lay it at the GOPs feet...”
P E R F E C T!!!
Then we’ll separate the facts from the lies! I am sick and tired of this game of chicken!
Let it BURN! How much worse can it be than having this stupid SOB in the White House who doesn’t know s%$# from Shinola, telling US what is happening!
We want to see what will happen! Go for it.
As el Rushbo would say...
“He he he he he”
of course obama will live with this shutdown as part of his legacy
Sure they will, as soon as Breaking Bad and Honey-Boo-Boo are off the air...
Say it and say it often, “Obama can negotiate with the Iranians, the North Koreans, and muslim fanatics in Syria, Egypt, Libya, and Tunisia; but, he can’t talk to the GOP. Unbelievable!
Bob Woodward’s old school - and totally fearless. Too bad he’s a dem...
Random act of Journalism on Woodward’s part?
Er... Breaking Bad just had its series finale...
Shame I can’t say the same about Honey-Boo-Boo.
Is Woodward being truthful, or just spreading disinformation?
All theDemocrats are thinking about is politics, the economy doesn’t figure much in this. The small businesses don’t vote Democrat for the most part. If you wreak havoc on them with Obamacare and a government shut down, so much the better. Helping small business is a talking point, nothing more. Tax and regulate them out of existence is an Obama objective.
Breaking Bad, aka The Meth Show, was on this weekend. So was the vote.
Guess which one the stupids watched...
Yeah science, b1tch!
What, one of three “journalists” who dare question this punk?
