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.
A protracted stalemate between Obama-led Democrats and congressional Republicans had prompted Friday's last-ditch meeting.

Oh goodie..we are going to hear from the Commie prick saying how Republicans are bad bad bad for not wanting to raise taxes on those evil rich people..Hey Im all for raising taxes on those rich celebrities who voted for the Marxist ass, just leave the rest of us the hell alone
Here we go.......didn’t make an appearance for months prior to the election. Now he calls a presser every other day just to bash republicans.

I am sure that a last minute deal, hammered out behind closed doors between Obama, Boehner and Reid, will be straightforward and greatly beneficial to all Americans!
Do I really need to include the sarc tag?
Well, I’ll watch the thread. Can’t stand to listern to the p**ck speak! Mostly everything out of his mouth is a lie anyway.
Thanks. We’re about to hear from the Contributor-In-Chief?
Socialism Is Legal Plunder - Bastiat (It doesn’t depend on the definition of “is”)
“Don’t blame me! It’s all those dirty capitalist Republican pigs, their wall street donors, and Teabaggers!
Okay! Everyone get the shot glasses of your favorite adult beverage set up and pick “I” or “Me” and every time O’Blamer says it take a drink.
Standing by for Hussein.
He’s late ........... again.
Blame the republicans. Same old thing.
ON FNC some fine looking panelists as we wait. Mute for your own protection from Juan Williams.
Same here. (corrected)
What Obama Plan Ed Henry?
They’re saying no deal but an understanding. sticking point is tax rates. Saying the last meeting was “constructive”. Sounds like the GOP caved but not enough info. GOP should go for the 400k limit Obummer offered previously.
Our drama qeeen speaks: Dear Whitey....One way or another, I’m getting a big cut of your check....and I don’t give a damn what you make.
Now later than late.
Well...the R’pubs deserve bashing.... The whole bunch is as worthless as teats on a boar hog.
“All my new higher taxes I’m cramming down your throats are Bush’s fault! But soon you’ll lose your job, too, and then you can kiss my ass for food stamps and a free Obamaphone. Merry Ramadam and a festive Kwanza, stupid chumps!”
“For the last couple months....” you’ve done nothing, clown.
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.
We should start a pool on how late he will be. 2:45 I say it will start at 3:15 pacific time.
Someone whispering off to the side bothered him. Rabbit ears...
The liar speaks. What a tool!
I wish he was The Late...
Lying through his teeth about where the economy is and where it’s going and why.
Without cutting spending raising taxes wont do jack S#$%
I refuse to hear the liar in chief speak. Hearing him talk makes me want to vomit and I got this fear of puking..Obama can’t help lying, he’s been lying since the day he was born
Sounds like the onus is going to be on Reid to get something they can vote on.
[Reid has been the obstructionist for years.]
Correct title head prick to lie and blame others at 6:PM hes always late.
“Nobody gets 100%...” (except me)
Thank you for correcting me.
I just watched the arrogant bastard. People actually voted for that dumbass?
Yea, it is shocking when you actually hear the idiot speak.
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?
