Obama: Won’t negotiate ‘with a gun at my head’

Obama: Won’t negotiate ‘with a gun at my head’ By: Jake Sherman and John Bresnahan and Burgess Everett and Jonathan Allen October 9, 2013 07:38 AM EDT

President Barack Obama told House Democrats on Wednesday that he would negotiate with Republicans but “not with a gun at my head,” according to one lawmaker who attended a caucus-wide meeting at the White House.

As he has before, Obama said he was open to short-term agreements to open the government and raise the debt ceiling if that’s what it took to help Republicans out of what he described as a political box, the lawmaker said.

After the meeting, House Democratic leaders suggested that they would accept short-term deals on both matters.

“All we want is a short-term CR because we think the number is unacceptable,” House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said, using shorthand for a continuing resolution that would fund the government for as little as a few weeks at current levels.

“We’re not going to vote against America paying its bills,” said Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (D-Md.), who stood beside Pelosi outside the West Wing of the White House.

Republicans, too, were busy Wednesday mapping out plans to end the crisis, with 2012 Republican vice presidential nominee Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin outlining a proposal for GOP colleagues in which they would agree to raise the debt limit and open the government for a short window with a spending-cut package riding alongside those deals.

What was it that Jumbo Ears said after Gabby Giffords was shot ?

In his speech he said we need civility, unity, less finger pointing, less blame, less cynicism and vitriol. We need to work together.

In reality he's my way or the highway.

Hes losing the battle. Especially when he goes out of his way to target veterans and the military and common tourists visiting our nation parks and monuments.

He acts like he’s going to die if he doesn’t get his Obamacare. Makes me wonder who is holding the gun to his head.

I think on odd numbered days he says he won’t negotiate, but on even numbered days he says he will.

IOW, my approval ratings down to 37% and every stupid thing I've done to create outrage has not been blamed on the Pubs.

or IOW, the American people actually expect me to be a grown up and sit down and talk with their elected representatives!

Well, well........

He will not negotiate with a gun at his head, but will negotiate with a nuclear bomb at his head.

I guess the Republicans need to take lessons from the Iranians and go nuclear

Can’t negotiate with a gun to your head, Obama?
Well, that is a fair thing to say. On the other
hand, we just can’t do anything about that
stick up your ass.

Not only is his analogy way over the top, it doesn't make any sense. If someone is holding a gun to your head and you believe that they'd use it, you'd be a damned fool not to comply with any of their demands that won't cost you your life.
