Skip to comments.Carney: Tea Party Wants Obama to 'Resign' to End Shutdown
Posted on 10/10/2013 2:11:22 PM PDT by bestintxas
President Obamas meeting with certain House Republicans, Carney said, would not be a negotiation: hes not going to pay ransom to the Tea Party so that the government opens or the government doesnt 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.

works for me!
Nope - but passing around a clipboard with a petition for people to sign might, might, be within his capabilities.
okay, I’ll agree to the stipulation Obama resigns.
Resign is putting it way too mildly.
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.
Just found the Tea Party web sight.
Carney doesn’t know what the TEA Party wants.
Resign? Resign? Heck, I want him in prison, in the cell next to Holder. Or, Sebelius. Or, Jarrett.
They really hate us... it’s creepy...
no.. nobody wants President Biden
That might help, but then you have Uncle Joe.
That would almost be justice. Almost.
Resigning would be a nice gesture on his part.
If this clown was my PR agent and went out and put the words Obama and resign in the same sentence, I would twist his soft and tenders off.
It is such an obvious mistake, you wonder why they did it. I suppose he could be that stupid.
But he swears he wasn't after Boehner, just a kiss good night.
