The man-child is going to try and berate everyone into submission. He’s going to get up there, say “I won”, and do a victory dance. He can’t deal with opposition, and he cannot forge compromise.

He is a street thug, nothing more.

“..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...”

I agree! I think those vets save us yet again!

WE owe them so very much! I wish the Conservative talking heads would pay them some extra respect!

WH sources are saying that Obama will reiterate to them, “Clean Bill or nothing.”

And how exactly are they supposed to clean Bill? If they couldn't get the stains out of that little blue dress, the rest of him must be just disgusting.

Put stipulations on any negotiation. For example, due to the fact that Democrats have recently displayed contempt for the process of closed-door negotiations, all negotiations must be held with full television coverage. Things like that.

Make any demands reasonable, but make Obama have to work for any negotiation.

exactly, this is all about him now saying he tried to talk but the GOP won’t budge and will hold the people ransom.

He knew by saying he would not talk would look bad thus he now meets but has nothing new to bring

My thought exactly - one branch of government does not “summon” another branch. If it was really posed that way, I think the answer should be, “KMA, you arrogant pr*ck”.

>> Smell under the table deal already made.

That can be taken at least two ways,

Smell under the table; deal already made

or

[I] smell [that an] “under the table” deal [is] already made.

The funny thing is, they both work.

A ‘Sunset provision’ among many others. No more than a year. The Dims will run us all into the ground otherwise.
There should be a stake held over this thing’s chest in case it turns out to be the bloodsucking vampire we believe it to be.
And no exemptions and no subsidies.

On second thought .... start pounding now!

Hope Boehner doesn’t let him off the hook on the shutdown in exchange for a debt limit deal- which is IMHO what he wants today.

That is EXACTLY what I believe will happen. Obama will postpone Obamacare but Republicans MUST pass the debt limit increase. I PRAY that the Republicans tell him to pound sand.

That “snap” might be helped along if Boner could work up the nerve to mention a few key words like Beengazzi, F&F, impeachment, etc. There has to be a certain threat level directed at the Kenyan directly-—that’s the only negotiating technique he will respond to——fear for his own skin.

BRILLIANT!

Let’s broadcast that meeting LIVE on C-Span!

Then let everyone see how “The One” tries to spin himself as the only “adult” in the room.

I think the Republicans should start the meeting by saying:

“For quality assurance purposes, this meeting is being recorded...”

Alternately, it may work to our advantage, if the House invites the networks to send big camera crews to broadcast the meeting. THEN, when “The One” tries to play-act as “Emperor Nero”, EVERYONE will see it....

If the White House has a problem with permitting an “open” meeting to occur, then Republicans should delay holding the meeting until the question of just WHY the White House wants to make a “secret deal” with the House has been thoroughly discussed.

Reid and other Democrats said if the House would first pass a “clean” funding bill (which includes bammycare),, then they would be willing to enter negotiations on a longer-term measure.

OK the commies want the House to hand them 100% of what they are demanding.

Then they will negotiate...

On what?

The democrats would have just gotten 100% of what they are demanding.

When the next "red line" is reached they will start whining about how "it was ok last time" and demand that the republicans do it again, give them 100% of what they want.

Just like the democrats always have.

Senator Burr went to dinner with Obama and fell in love and couldn’t stop playing tiddly winks him after that-I would guess many of the GOPers will be seduced if he throws a steak at them and a bottle of red.

So is this gonna help the GOP win more seats in the 2014 election? That is what I am hoping, that it energizes at least some of them to get out the vote and get the GOP more seats in the 2014 elections. Because I am unsure how popular this is gonna make them with independents and fence sitters.

Obama will reiterate to them, “Clean Bill or nothing.”

Then I guess it's nothing. Let Baraq veto funding for things people want like parks, guard and reserve pay, and a whole host of other things.

I put some figures into the calculator they have. The more you make, the higher the premiums. Some low income ranges would get a 75% subsidy on a 3K premium. That 3K premium is for the “bronze” plan.
