Skip to comments.Obama Said Monday Willing To Talk, End Partial Government Shutdown (starting to crack)
Posted on 10/07/2013 2:50:09 PM PDT by Libloather
I have said from the start of the year that Im happy to talk to Republicans about anything related to the budget. Theres not a subject that I am not willing to engage in, work on, negotiate and come up with common sense compromises on.
Mr. Obama stressed that he cannot negotiate with Republicans under the threat of a debt default, urging Congress to reopen the government and raise the governments borrowing authority immediately. What Ive said is that I cannot do that under the threat that if Republicans dont get 100 percent of their way theyre going to either shut down the government or they are going to default on Americas debt, so that America, for the first time in history, does not pay its bills.

RUSH: This is a total crock.
The reason the Republicans shutdown the government is an attempt by "conservative" groups to "defund Obamacare". From the NY Times: A Federal Budget Crisis Months in the Planning
Shortly after President Obama started his second term, a loose-knit coalition of conservative activists led by former Attorney General Edwin Meese III gathered in the capital to plot strategy. ... This is a radical approach to public policy and it is Not Gonna Happen .
Out of that session, held one morning in a location the members insist on keeping secret, came a little-noticed blueprint to defunding Obamacare, signed by Mr. Meese and leaders of more than three dozen conservative groups.
It articulated a take-no-prisoners legislative strategy that had long percolated in conservative circles: that Republicans could derail the health care overhaul if conservative lawmakers were willing to push fellow Republicans including their cautious leaders into cutting off financing for the entire federal government.
We felt very strongly at the start of this year that the House needed to use the power of the purse, said one coalition member ...
Last week the country witnessed the fallout from that strategy: a standoff that has shuttered much of the federal bureaucracy and unsettled the nation.
Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel made a surprise announcement on Saturday that he would recall next week almost all of the 400,000 civilian employees of the Defense Department who had been sent home when the government shut down. Congress will pay-the-bills (aka raise the "debt ceiling"). This is not negotiable. Treasury believes they will be low on funds by October 17th.
Mr. Hagel said the decision that most D.O.D. civilians would now be exempted from furloughs came after Pentagon and Justice Department lawyers interpreted a budget law passed just before the shutdown to include a larger number of workers.
Never put doen a “red line” either.
Has this guy ever told the truth?
He speaks with forked tongue. He does the opposite of what he says.
“My dear Stanley Ann Dunham,
I will love you in the morning as much as I and my friends love you tonight.”

I’ve heard for every lie uttered; one hair on the liars’ head turns KKK Sheet White.
Do you have a more recent picture?
That’s what’s wrong with this evil administration and it’s rotten head!
Until he says similar words, anything he says about Obamacare are worthless.
The only thing I want to hear from the Clown Prince is “How often do I get to leave my cell?”
This country is now under Cruz control.

He’s got at least 80 reasons to put him away.
It’s amazing that he hasn’t been gotten on at least a couple dozen charges of treason.
“Some animals are mor equal...”
Just another divide and conquer ploy

How do you even have a discussion with someone so detached from reality that he can’t tell whether or not he said he would negotiate?
No, sorry. He uses Lady Clairol `Dark As A Woodchuck’s Butthole’ black hair color anyway.
There are liars and then there are sociopaths. Obama is the latter and the former. Quite an accomplishment actually.
No compromise. Total surrender by the WH.
