S&P futures are now over 15 points off the day's highs, as it seems equity investors were hoping for a Cumbaya moment after the White House meeting today. However, as Bloomberg reports,
*BOEHNER LEAVES OBAMA MEETING WITHOUT SPEAKING TO REPORTERS *REPUBLICANS LEAVE WHITE HOUSE WITHOUT MAKING STATEMENT *OBAMA REJECTS REPUBLICAN PROPOSAL FOR SHORT-TERM PLAN: NYT It would seem that Obama's "unconditional surrender or default" position has merely placed the pressure to act back on Boehner's shoulders.

Compromise for thee but not for me.
So the Republicans are the ones doing all the work, approaches, yet it’s all on the Republicans? Doesn’t make sense.
Who wants to go in on the tissue concession for when Boner starts weeping?
Ah Ha Ha
Lucy pulled the ball away again
Take that Charlie Brown Boner
Will they ever learn?
Boehner needs to confer with Cruz and Lee and like people to keep his resolve and/or backbone.
Well let’s see if Boner’s half-assed surrender now turns into full-fledged surrender.
At least it just shows Obunghole keeps saying No. Guess after all this time who looks like he’s not trying to do anything. Obummer. And many, many people are seeing it.
Don’t get your hopes up. Brett Baier said that Obama did not reject the offer outright, he just wants the Republicans to show progress (cave) on the CR.
That’s a comment much like you hear from democrats. Wait and see before shooting from the hip.
Pass the bill anyway and tie it to the full faith and credit act! Then let the markets (and big business) force Obama to take up this measure.
In a word - yes. The Republicans are the ones crawling to Obama to beg him to bless them with a solution.
MARK LEVIN RADIO NEWS ALERT!
WH LEADERSHIP IS TALKING TO THE REPUBLICAN LEADERSHIP.
Obama is a POS lying SOB. He should be frog-marched out of the White House and held at Gitmo for Treason.
So he wants to raise the debt ceiling by 2 trillion now ?
The Reps keep on negotiating with themselves. It is time to give a take it or leave proposition. The constant presenting of a new plan is viewed as a sign of weakness not a desire to negotiate. The Reps should hire Donald Trump as an adviser on how to negotiate.
He's halfway there. He already crawled on his belly to the snake, now he is waiting for the snake to open his jaws so he can crawl in.
Dont get your hopes up. Brett Baier said that Obama did not reject the offer outright, he just wants the Republicans to show progress (cave) on the CR.
7 days to go is a lifetime in any negotiations. Barry will play this for all its worth.
So now, more than ever, the Republicans should continue the mini-bill strategy and stop giving anything to OSpiteful, because it’s obvious he won’t budge unless the R’s completely give it all up and give him everything he wants. I pray they continue to hold the line and put it all in OSpitefulls lap.
I think it was Putin that said negotiating with obama is like playing chess with a pigeon. He struts all over the board like he owns it while knocking over the pieces, craps all over the board, and then flies away like he won.
“Doesnt make sense.”
It does if you understand just how powerful propaganda from an incredibly biased media can be., Like the NBC Evening News fear-mongering “Blame The REPUBLICANS!!!” lead I just watched.
However, very few in today’s America even know what the word “propaganda” means.
What a perfect comparison to Charlie Brown and Lucy! And this is so true!
Then Boehner should define "progress" as demanding that Reid pass a Senate budget so that they can abandon the CR's and return to regular order.
That should be the House's final line in the sand.
Put it on Reid's shoulders. Senate budget and regular order or nothing.
I don’t believe this report...remember Obama wants to see the market rattle....
Reid said “It won’t happen”. This proves obama takes his marching orders from someone else. Reid is the messenger. I assume the republicans know this which means when they talk to obama all they do is ask “So, what did Reid say?”
The GOP should tell the world that they tried and obama won’t budge. Then just walk away. They should say they’ve got to get to the banks and withdraw all their money and buy gold. Gold is the only thing that will be of value when the democrats are finished.
It’s his way or the highway. No surprise here
<...”very few in todays America even know what the word propaganda means”....>
LOLOL...they’re so deep in believing it they wouldn’t know!
Krautammer said it was a classic bait and switch by the preazy.
Compromise: Come pro my eyes
That means you come towards me ‘til everything’s good in my eyes.

I doubt this is a wrap as reported here....Boehner would have gone straight to the mike if it was a no go...the fact he didn’t talk to the media says he has to go back to the others with what he’s got.
We”ve been down that road many times....but it’s very clear the President is not leading....why would he...he’s pretty much handed the wand to Reid.
Hahaha! Don’t forget the “Meet The Depressed” music. ;-)
Gosh, Obama REALLY does not want Obamacare for himself.
So far, Boner’s performance bears me out. This recent stand is merely an anomaly.
I agree. Reid is leading the way.
Maybe we should hire Putin to negotiate. Pigeons can be quite tasty when roasted.
Obama wants a default..Obama knows this is his last term, he is going to do whatever it takes to destroy this country completely before he leaves..he figures now is his chance
Easy really then no credit card. What you get in the coming taxes and receipts is what you got.
It’s all pretty simple really. Boehner tells Obama that until Obama and his administration put a plan together so this will not happen again, there will be no deal.
Obama blames Boehner and Boehner comes to the mic says the American people will not be extorted for the next 3 years to fund follies like Obamacare, which is bankrupting the country.
And walk away.
Do you want a Government who punishes Americans during shutdown to Run Your HealthCare System !!??
can anyone top that ?!!?
The Senate has passed a budget -- totally on party lines.
The Senate budget is, however, so unrealistic -- calling for more expenditures than are currently scheduled -- that the House has refused to take it up or go to Conference.
Recall that, some months ago, the House voted to deny salaries to the Senate until they passed a budget -- which is what caused the Senate to finally act.
The Democrats are not about dealing in good faith.
You can’t trust a Communist!!!!
