Posted on 12/28/2012 2:45:39 PM PST by John W
The highly-anticipated meeting came and went without any immediate clue from congressional lawmakers as to whether they had made any progress toward resolving the impending onset of automatic tax hikes and spending cuts set to take effect on Jan. 1.
But the president is scheduled to deliver a statement from the White House at 5:45 p.m. ET.

4-5 mins of "let me repeat"....
President Camacho forgot to fire his machine gun
Even CNN is saying his calling for an up-or-down vote doesn’t work in Washington.
They are running out of venues to discuss it. They have run out of time and places to go for a deal.
Translation: O didn’t impress CNN/Crowley in his spiel.
Obama’s voice- Harry Reid’s words.
I bet Harry even picks and chooses the men Obama can date...
Just getting back from Hawaii, he must be exhausted, give him a break.
That and - he's on CPT.
Maybe he was taking a dump and thats what took him so long..seeing the comments from twitter he’s sure full of crap
Is he done yet?
Is he headed back to Hawaii now?
Crowley, after the commercial break, is actually chuckling about what Obama said.
Reid & McConnell are negotiating. They may take up one of the House bills and amend it into meaninglessness. Obama's being hardline on $250K for tax hikes.
I’ve heard the @$$hat’s talking points, he’s given NOTHING!
Tell him to take a hike!
I bet the reason he left Hawaii early was NOT due to the fiscal cliff, but health reason: the MiL voted him off the island.
It probably has more to do with reaching the debt limit - Barry can afford to have his credit card maxed out.
People didn’t vote for Obama, they voted for what Obama can give them..as much free crap as humanly possible. There are many reasons why Obama never released his college transcripts, for one he can’t put two words together without saying UMMMMM
WOW you know things are bad when fat ass Crowley isn’t even impressed by what the dirt bag said
He is done for now but oh me!!!!
That’s true. And not just the rate of increase decreased but actual cuts.
That’s it? That’s it?!!! I expected a long thread and it’s ovah!
