Carney: Tea Party Wants Obama to 'Resign' to End Shutdown
breitbart ^ | 10/10/13 | b shapiro

Posted on 10/10/2013 2:11:22 PM PDT by bestintxas

President Obama’s meeting with certain House Republicans, Carney said, would not be a negotiation: “he’s not going to pay ransom to the Tea Party so that the government opens or the government doesn’t default.”

Carney blamed divisions among Republicans for the government shutdown, particularly blaming the Tea Party: “The President invited all members of Congress because he believes all of them shoulder the responsibilities…When it comes specifically to the House of Representatives and the House Republican conference, I think the president extended the invitation to all members because we have seen that it is a very diverse and fractious conference…a subsection of the House Republican conference has been driving decisionmaking…and that is in part why we have a shutdown.”

Carney complained that Obama had “sincerely engaged” by buying Republicans dinner. He said that “there is a subsection here that will only end the shutdown if [Obama] offers to resign.”

He'd turn the country to a cinder pile before he'd resign.

The spokeskid has it right!!! Nothing would please me more than seeing the Kenyan resign and take a job he’s actually qualified for, like WalMart greeter.

Yes,

but this needs to be called what it is:

A STRAWMAN ARGUMENT.

No one in the Tea Party is saying that Obama must resign to end the shutdown.

Just sign the budget bill that the House, according to its Constitutional duty, has passed.

Ransom? Hostage takers? I’m confused. Don’t the Dems and libtards constantly lecture us on “getting along” and against the “polarizing language” of those that “disagree with our ideas”?

Rush yesterday, and I think Hannity too, played their rhetoric today against what O said at that “can’t we all get along and quit shooting Congress members, especially Dems speech he gave after Giffords got shot.

Hilarious.

That sounds great until Biden is considered. He might actually be insane, in addition to being half-witted.

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

I wonder how he feels about "resigning" rather than "negotiating"?

So the MOST ARROGANT ONE thought he was making some kind of concessions to the GOP by buying (some) their dinner? Like he even really paid for it, right? AND I am getting pretty dang tired of hearing from dems and MSM that it is just a bunch of right-wing crazies driving all of the push back on the debt and 0bamacare. How much would it hurt them to listen to and report on our side of the story once in awhile?

Well, not quite. Biden would have to resign too. Then we can talk about ending the shutdown.

I guess then that’ll make Boner the President, but I think at least he can be pressured to stay in line until we can elect a REAL President.

If Prince Barry has found the pressures of the job too much for him, then resignation would certainly be the honorable thing to do, and I applaud him for it.

Frankly, that would make him a martyr to his jihad. Cities would burn and the nation would take decades to recover.

If what is being done now does not work to bring the country to its knees, he might just do it.

In fact, given the profligacy of binging on this or that thing/vacation, I wouldn’t be surprised if this entire period doesn’t include that as a form of political self-immolation. He becomes the ‘victim.’

Are Tea Parties organized so that somewhere their is a head of the organization and the independent parties report to. And does this head speak for all Americans in the Tea Parties. Just asking because not much information about if organized. Would like to know.

Actually, Carney lets slip aha this is all about.

Obama has been able to intimidate the Republicans not by the power he has, but by the power they think he has based on his seemingly ability to screw everything he touches while being able to blame every one but himself and his Administration to keep his favorable ratings and public support.

Obama governs simply by fear and intimidation - it's his only game plan

The Syria redline situation and Benghazi has destroyed his foreign policy credibility and and put a chink in his aura of invincibility.

If he loses this domestic battle, his aura of invincibility will be totally destroyed and he will cease to be effective, which in his eyes is the same as resigning.
