re: Obama rejects GOP short-term debt limit increase..


quote:



WASHINGTON — President Obama on Thursday rejected a proposal from politically besieged House Republican leaders to extend the nation’s borrowing authority for six weeks because it would not also reopen the government. Yet both parties saw it as the first break in Republicans’ brinkmanship and a step toward a fiscal truce.

Twenty Republicans, led by Speaker John A. Boehner, went to the White House at Mr. Obama’s invitation after a day of fine-tuning their offer to increase the Treasury Department’s authority to borrow money to pay existing obligations through Nov. 22. In exchange, they sought the president’s commitment to negotiate a deal for long-term deficit reduction and a tax overhaul.

Mr. Boehner and his colleagues left after about an hour and a half without speaking to waiting reporters.

The Republican proposal could come to a vote as soon as Friday. But the White House and Congressional Democrats remained skeptical that House Republican leaders could pass the proposal. A large faction of Tea Party conservatives campaigned on promises never to vote to increase the nation’s debt limit, and say they do not believe the warnings — including from Republican business allies — that failing to act could provoke a default and economic chaos globally. And House Democrats vowed not to support the proposal without a companion measure to fully fund a government now shuttered for 10 days.

I think he'll take the deal, but first he's going to push to clean up the debt ceiling and the shutdown right now.

He can spin all he wants, it'll be hard to blame the GOP for the debt ceiling not being raised if he's the one not taking the deal.

Dam..that is scary....the Tea Party doesn't BELIEVE ???? If they are going to sign such a thing they better dam well KNOW what they are doing. This is the problem I have with people of faith...believing in a fairy tell like God is one thing when it only affects you personally but BELIEF is no way to run a battle ship......You better have some infallible knowledge or something is going to knock a hole in your hull and you gonna sink like the Titanic....

nope.

This all about trying to defund ACA.

And since Obama isn't trying to do that...guess where the buck stops.

Sure, keep telling us that you're a republican and a conservative.

You'd fit right in with people like John McCain, Lindsey Graham, and Peter King.

It's hilarious when you really think about it.

Obama had an excellent opportunity of a softball thrown at him and he can't even hit it past any of the bases.

No, no.
Boehner should repeat his same offer. Everyday. He should continue to offer opening of DC funding, etc. He should continue his offer to negotiate. He looks like he's trying. POTUS looks like an ass.

Hard to believe, but the GOP could take the upper hand here.
