So, the President offered an off ramp, in which he said I will accept any length of extension...
So, Boehner has his offer, he goes in to see the president, you would expect that he would then have a six-week extension and discuss all of these issues. What seems to have happened is there are now demands from the president...

Obama doesn’t want a solution, and he will make sure he doesn’t get one. That’s how he plans to win and seize emergency power.
Obama and his administration lies.
That is an easy way to say a tough thing.
A small word that tells much about the person’s character.
Public pressure forced the president to sign the “Honoring the Families of Fallen Soldiers Act” yesterday and I am certain he is mad and resentful about that. If his history is any guide he will become even more difficult to deal with in the upcoming days. He ususally is after having had his @$$ handed to him.
This is like living under a king...edicts and all.
Unfortunately yours is an excellent summary and it’s right on the money.
I think Republicans and most people in general can’t fathom that anyone can be pure evil.
“He is evil and you are morons.”
Vituperation... great word, thanks.
Over and over and over .... Fast&Furious, Benghazi, IRS, NSA ... and especially 0bamacare:
In the 2008 campaign and the years thereafter, Barack Obama said something over and over: Under the health law of his and Democrats dreams, premiums for average families would fall by $2,500. He said this until he was blue in the face that health insurance would be more affordable, and he put a specific number on it.
He also said, over and over and over and over that, if you liked your plan, you would not have to give it up. Nothing would change for you. No, we were just going to help some folks who were down on their luck and did not have access to health insurance. But rest assured: If you liked your plan, nothing would change for you.
Now, both of those things turn out to be untrue: Health premiums are not going down, by $2,500 or any other number; theyre going up. And its not true that you wont be forced off your plan: Some are.
Okay, the rant (cooler version): If you were President Obama, dont you think youd feel the need to address these things?
if you were a reporter in the White House press corps, youd ask the president about them. Youd say, Mr. President, you said over and over that health-insurance premiums would fall by $2,500.
Silly Boehner and GOP, community organizers need a crisis to advance their agenda...haven’t you learner that after almost 5 years of Obama?
My reasons for liking the 6 week extension idea: It allows a separation of the Government Shutdown/Obamacare issue from the Debt Limit Issue.
Why is that important?
Combining the two will both confuse the public and make it all too easy for the GOP to negotiate a debt ceiling reduction and a clean Continuing Resolution without getting anything but some nominal spending reductions out of the deal. Obamacare goals would be the first thing that gets dropped during the negotiations. A bad deal for us.
Krauthammer attends the Obama dinners. Not a word out of his mouth should be believed or adhered to.
This is actually the same technique used by Hitler against Chamberlain. Chamberlain offered Hitler something, and Hitler would take it; but instead of offering something in return, Hitler would demand more from Chamberlain, who was such a weak-willed individual that he would agree to it, with hopes that Hitler would offer something in return. Hitler never did.
The trouble with this technique is that eventually it backs (the) Chamberlain side into a corner, so he has to create an ultimatum, a “red line”. Since he has proven so weak before, (the) Hitler side, defies the ultimatum, thinking he can get away with it. Which at least at first, he can.
So now the conservatives must persuade the Republican leadership that negotiations with Obama are fruitless, because Obama does not haggle, only demand. And if the Republican leadership are firm, Obama will endlessly complain and whine about it.
This time, even with the help of the MSM, complaining and whining won’t work either, because it makes him look not only mean, but petulant and bratty, as Krauthammer pointed out.
Don’t negotiate with Obama. He is not so popular that you cannot wait for a crack in the Dems. Make them break with him. Lather. Rinse. Repeat.
Actually, you malign Chamberlain. England, it’s peacetime army, its obsolete air force, and its people were not yet ready for war, and his only ally, France, was useless, as was proved later. Chamberlain was playing for time to get ready for the war that was expected eventually.
