It would appear that President Obama's comprehension of the meaning of the word "negotiate" is different from that taught in the new "common core". Speaking at an event at FEMA, he noted:
- *OBAMA: WILL NEGOTIATE AFTER GOVT OPENS, DEBT CEILING RAISED
- *OBAMA: WON'T NEGOTIATE UNDER 'THREAT OF ECONOMIC CATASTROPHE'
- *OBAMA TELLS CONGRESS TO 'MOVE BEYOND THIS MANUFACTURED CRISIS'
But given his comments last week on the markets' need to see this as a crisis, perhaps the best word to use to describe this farce is "inconceivable."
