Skip to comments.["visibly frustrated"] Obama willing to talk, but only after government open, debt ceiling raised
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.

I thought the idea of a democracy is that the pols had to listen to us.
And since when was gerrymandering a republican idea?
Just once I wish a presstitute would point out the obvious to this freakin' pretender.
Speaker Boehner just told him they WILL talk.
He said that raising the debt ceiling cannot continue as it has.
Heard that before. First, raise the debt, and then we’ll talk. Riiight.
First, eliminate Education, EPA, USDA, and half of the cabinet-level agencies.
“hand over your wallet and then we’ll talk about whether or not I’m going to rob you”...
Besides, the gummint IS open, at least the Obamacare website is, right?
give him everything he wants and then he will talk
what a joke
“Im always willing to negotiate with people who have surrendered all of their leverage.”
Obama’s attitude makes sense from his perspective. What if for your whole life somebody just passed you along, through schools and social situations...you never had to fight for something or work for something. Imagine how frustrating it must feel when suddenly you aren’t having things done for you and made to work out for you.
He has no idea how the game is played because he never had to play it. Worse, he’s unaware that he doesn’t know how it’s played. He thinks he’s the master. So he’s instructing the other side to lay down and let him win.
Obama’s speech (what I could stomach watching)reminded me of Caesars Chavez justifying his take over of the economy. He sounded like a dictator not an elected president. I fear that Obama will use the debt crisis to seize more unconstitutional powers in bypassing Congress. We could be seeing an end to our Republic. Sadly the GOP will likely cave in.
IOW, GIVE ME EVERYTHING I WANT, THEN I’LL TALK ABOUT NEGOTIATING.....................
Boehner said that just minutes ago. The bam wants complete capitulation... then he’ll talk.
Obama’s sympathy for Republicans facing primaries is just, er, uh, umm, well, not playing well I guess. My message to the white-half of Obama: pound sand liar!
Ill talk about ways to improve the health care system. Ill talk about ways we can shrink our long-term deficits. Ill also want to talk about how were going to help the middle class and strengthen early childhood education and improve our infrastructure and blah blah blah...
Same recycled hot air. Only the saps still believe his tired jive.
“Oh what a web we weave , when we first star to deceive”
Bonehead has surprised me so far.
I don't want to be too hard on this, but the more you say it the more it becomes an acceptable expectation. They will rationalize that if it is expected it won't be that bad when they do cave.
"Hey Barry! Go home and get your ****ing shine box!"
“but only after the government is reopened and the nations debt ceiling is raised”
translation - give me the means to keep spending as I have been snce 2009, by simply raising the debt limit, again, so again the heat is off to negotiate seriously, and I can delay serious negotiations ocnce again, until I create the next crisis demanding another raise in the debt OR ELSE!!!!!!!
When it comes Obama vs Boehner and the GOP in the Senate, they have become like the South Koreans and the U.S. in “negotiations” with North Korea - played for the rope-a-dope patsies that they are - the winning side (North Korea and Obama) create a crisis (his threats to default, instead of cutting discretionary spending) if he does not get a debt increase), threaten and bluster, and the losing side caves and appeases the victor. For five years now Obama and Reid have held up getting the nations budget business done until time for the next 11th hour crisis point and need for another raise in the debt limit (’cause they just want to keep spending as is (2009 budget and its automatic increases) and a debt limit increase is satisfactory for that objective).
I love that graphic every time it’s posted. Thanks!
TEA party to Obama:
Shove it you contemptible little pipsqueak! We are not your subjects to be kicked around whenever you think we’re disobeying your dictates! YOU WORK FOR US! THIS IS OUR COUNTRY!!!
