Skip to comments.Boehner: House will not pass bill to re-open government until Obama agrees to negotiate
Posted on 10/06/2013 7:21:57 PM PDT by Kaslin
Speaker John Boehner said Sunday that the House of Representatives will not pass bills to re-open the federal government or raise the debt limit unless President Barack Obama comes to the negotiating table.
He knows what my phone number is, all he has to do is call, Boehner, R-Ohio said on ABC's This Week with George Stephanopoulos.

This statement makes no sense. The House has passed numerous bills. Boehner makes it sound like the House is doing nothing and plays into the dems’ hands when they claim the pubs shut down the government.
This uncharacteristic show of spine from Boehner is....disturbing. I’m waiting for the other shoe to drop. I feel like It’s only a matter of time before the Republicans snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.
I hope he doesn't, but I've seen the scenario before.
jonny’s must be overdosing on Axiron
Finally! For once I will thank Speaker Boehner.
McClatchy is making up headlines. The Clown and his master Dingy own the Shutdown.
boner must know it’s now or never. Maybe he knows raising the debt limit is the worse thing we could do.
The solution is simple, Mr. Boehner:
Convert to slam, then join Al Queda, Hezbollah, or any number of respectable terrorist orgainzations, and obama will go the extra mile for you, no problem.
And he’ll even bow before you when you meet too! It’ll be all in the family then...
I want them to stick with it. I also want them to do a better job of making obastard the villain.
I think that he put his finger in the air and found the wind direction favorable to this new position. I will take this as good news.
I believe that the press is becoming increasingly ambivalent on Obama. The arbitrary shutdown of government functions, discovering that the vast majority of certain departments (i.e., the EPA) is “non-essential”, and grossly blatant lies and quarter-truths over the weekend by the mouthpieces, unignorable by all but the lowest information voters, did not help Obama at all. People do not like having their health care screwed around with, a lot of people who DO have insurance are getting sticker shock this month, and the flop of the websites and a view of “things to come” are pushing this over the edge.
If you read comments on Yahoo Finance, for example, the Dem shills can’t keep up anymore in their attempts to refute the tidal wave of discontent from the real majority.
A real howler was Yahoo’s sob story article about government employees already selling their possessions - like evening gowns(!), for example - because apparently, they didn’t have any savings and were up to their ears in credit card debt!
Obama may agree to “negotiate”, but will show up at a table, rub his chin and nod, and then say “no”.
To demand a lie from a liar would be the height of folly.
While past experience means that they will cave at any minute, I am hopeful that this actually means what he says!
Not holding my breath though as I’ve been so discouraged by the Republican leadership so many times that I’ve decided to vote Libertarian...
They’re having to sell their evening gowns? How beastly! I wonder what the females are having to sell.
What did they talk about when the speaker was summoned by Obama to the WH four days ago? From what I recall, president ‘Xerxes’ simply stated “I won’t negotiate” while Reid stood by and glowered like Grumpy cat. “I have spoken. Let it be writ. Let it be done.” This punk is a parody of himself!
Good for Boner! Make him call you, otherwise you’re negotiating with yourself. Obama and the democrats are loosing. Let them hang.
Let them talk. Wait them out. The dhims are in panic mode, not having been able to tap the sweat of our brows for almost a week.
Yes they do indeed own the Shutdown, there is no denying it!
Shutting down the Government is the Negotiation.
The topic for discussion is "which parts of the Government should ever be restarted".
We want real negotiation and the outcomes were looking for.
Obama can not be trusted.
Joe Wilson called it long ago !
I think the pod people have taken over Boehner’s body...that not the Speaker of the House...
>> McClatchy is making up headlines. The Clown and his master Dingy own the Shutdown.
Boehner needs to put on this tough guy act because Ted Cruz stripped the ball from him the other week.
I still remember Bush 41 playing the tough guy saying back in the 1980’s when he was campaigning “I’m not a card carrying member of the ACLU” or something like that.
“Read my lips, no new taxes” was his biggest tough guy line and we all know that was a lie.
ITS PRETEND TO BE CONSERVATIVE TIME FOR THE RINOS RIGHT NOW......
I have no confidence in Boo Hoo Boehner. You can bet your last dollar he is working double overtime to try to find a way to kiss the Prez’s a$$ and bring this shutdown to an end and give his boyfriend Barry all that he demands. He has all the backbone of limp linguine. The only question that remains is which will fold quicker a) a cheap suit b) an old lawn chair or c) John Boehner. I pick C since I have a memory of every other “tough” stance this bona fide, worthless piece of human debris has taken. He hopes he can keep his Speakership and cave to the President all at the same time. He may be the only politician that visits the White House with a jar of Vaseline. TERM LIMITS NOW!!!
I think obamma and reid have already agree to negotiate, after a clean CR is passed. In other words, same thing they have done time and time again. and nothing happens.
Ted Cruz made Boehner get a backbone. Cruz exposed all RINOs that were supporting ObamaCare. With 2 yr terms it is easier to vote out RINO House member
Ted Cruz is the person who should be the only one to comment,he cleaned The candy balloon on CNN yesterday,explaining that Republicans have been passing bills and having them shot down by Reid. Boner is a disgrace,he should resign
Thank you. :)
