President Barack Obama summoned congressional leaders to the White House on the second day of a partial government shutdown that has furloughed hundreds of thousands of workers and closed military cemeteries as far away as France. Republican leaders welcomed the Wednesday afternoon meeting but questioned whether Democrats were ready to deal.

"We're pleased the president finally recognizes that his refusal to negotiate is indefensible," Boehner spokesman Brendan Buck said. "It's unclear why we'd be having this meeting if it's not meant to be a start to serious talks between the two parties."
If OBAMACARE SUBSIDY HEALTH INSURANCE TAX, aka OSHIT, is so popular, then why isnt Mr. Michelle Obama enrolled?
This is enrollment day number TWO, Barry: tick-tock - - -
How about Obama hop on his bicycle and haul his ass to Congress and beg for a meeting?
no he;s not bending but understands that him saying no talking to the right looks bad.
This is all a stage and I bet they did a inside poll.
“President Barack Obama summoned”
He could summon all he wanted and I would tell him to kiss it! This is his baby, let him deal with it on his own.
No, he has got them up there to make it look like he is negotiating. The only thing he is willing to negotiate is whom sits in the left chair and whom sits in the right chair before the emperor.
Then his press office will put out a statement that he found Bonehead to be reluctant to deal because he was being held hostage by the tea party.
If this obamacare is so great then why are not all the Obama’s signed up and why hasn’t the Dems?
LEAD BY EXAMPLE BOZO AND SIGN UP YOURSELF AS WELL AS YOUR FAMILY.
Summon? Obama can visit Congress, not the other way around.
He won’t bend. He is calling them in to tell them that he wants everything his way or no way.
this is where the blackmail threats start.
they better treat the little man/boy with the disrespect he has earned.
people are starting to see how overpriced obamacrare is.
5000 dollar deductable, 40%(?) copays, 30-40% more expensive premiums, only moocher class qualified for subsidies...
“President Barack Obama summoned congressional leaders”
Summoned like come here lackies.
This is his attempt to double punch Bonehead. Bonehead saying this is probably the first move to negotiate! What an idiot. This is just like when he asked Ryan to come to that speech he gave and in which he berated him and made him look like a fool. Typical bully move, two on one.
*He wont bend. He is calling them in to tell them that he wants everything his way or no way*
He’s calling them in to wish them into the cornfield because they’re “very bad men”.
You know, with all the crimes the rats get away with, with all the full-throated support they show to their criminals, if I was a Republican congressman and they tried to blackmail me even with something I really did, I’d tell them to “bring it” and then have my staff start preparing charts and lists of rats who got re-elected in spite of their crimes. Sometimes you just have to fight them on their own ground, because they will never fight on high ground.
That’s a good point. Congress ought to do just that.
...think the WW2 VETS hit a nerve yesterday and AGAIN TODAY...pictures of old guys in wheelchairs were NOT ALLOWED ON AN OPEN SIDEWALK...didn’t make Odungo look good....he caved, no mounted police to enforce Odungo’s wishes this AM...tho the threat WAS THERE LAST NIGHT. *smiles*..THEY CAME ANYWAY...
