Posted on 10/08/2013 1:28:28 PM PDT by Cincinatus' Wife
President Obama on Tuesday expressed openness to large-scale discussions with Republicans on entitlements, taxes and a host of other hot-button issues.
He even offered to buy them dinner but only after the government is reopened and the nations debt ceiling is raised.
In a rare appearance before reporters in the White House press room, a visibly frustrated Mr. Obama again called on House Speaker John Boehner to call a vote on a clean bill to reopen Washington.

And all of you know it. I mean, I'm not telling you anything you don't know because it's very explicit. You report on it. A big chunk of the Republican Party right now is -- are in gerrymandered districts where there's no competition and those folks are much more worried about a tea party challenger than they are about a general election where they've got to complete against a Democrat or go after independent votes. And in that environment, it's a lot harder for them to compromise......." The October 8, 2013 rant
Make Bammy eat his peas.
I can hear Obie’s grandma.....Here honey...Take the cookie jar to your room and later we’ll talk about you selling my jewelry at school.
“Give me a blank check, and then we’ll discuss your wishes.”
I listened to him....He looked like he was going in circles. Nothing made sense.
That's not being too representative, but I'll take it at the moment.
He’s willing to open negotiations after the unconditional surrender.
Anybody else notice that the little fudgepacker fights just like a woman?
That's because he was lying the whole time about everything.
“I’m always willing to negotiate with people who have surrendered all of their leverage”.
The old “put down your guns first” con job....
Maybe he did learn something from being Putin’s shoeshine boy.
I was getting my nails done while the resident was yammering on—and on—and on.
Thank goodness the sound wasn’t on.
Several people in the nail shop were saying not nice things about the resident, and I loved it, but didn’t chime in. I could tell that the person doing my nails was one of his supporters, and I didn’t want to say anything that would make her slip with the nippers she was using-—LOL!
“a visibly frustrated Mr. Obama”
We are WINNING! The polls are not where the enemies of this great country thought they would be.
With all the rhetoric about 'holding hostages', isn't this position the very essence of 'ransom'???
I mean, how is this different from 'I'll release the kidnap victim after you drop off the bag of money?'
And what kind of idiot trusts a habitual liar and gives him everything he wants on the promise of a payoff?
Oh. Republicans. Yeah, that's what kind of idiots...
IF what he says is true,
the representatives... hmmm... that word means something, does it?
well, the representatives are representing the will of their constituents, and not acting like elitist “know betters”.
This reads like something from The Onion.
So he wants them to give him the milk, and then he will discuss the cow, which he then will not buy.
If crybaby Boehner falls for this there isn’t enough duct tape in the world to keep conservative heads from exploding.
