Obama To Explain His "Negotiating" Tactics - Live Webcast

Tyler Durden's picture


Given the statements this morning it is clear that President Obama is unwilling to negotiate on his unwillingness to negotiate. It would seem that he would do well to listen to the immortal words of Mike Tyson, "everyone has a plan, until they get punched in the face," and we suspect the market is about to deliver that upper cut... which in reflection is exactly what the President called for last week - though as we noted earlier - the polls are mixed as to who is to blame.

I really hope the House just tells him to go fuck himself and leave this bitch closed.  Despite Harry "they are anarchists" Reid's fucking ignorant blather, this is actually the job of Congress.  Their most important responsibility is the power of the purse.  And under no circumstances should that be ceded to anyone, even if we have a petulant child for a President.

what an ass...Congress set the debt limit, congress spent too much.  if congress wants to stay within their debt LIMIT, they can by implementing what the President himself DEMANDED.....PAYGO.  if you want to spend a $1 over, then you simply need to cut a dollar somewhere else.

now, the president chooses to forget his own directive and claim the people following his directive are "Deadbeats"

lost ALL respect for this guy.....

Once again, I see things from a different vantage point...

(1)  He's scoring points by DEFINING THE DEBATE, w/o a good counter-point (the Truth!) coming out from Boehner & GOP.

(2)  Taking advice from Rahm Emmanuel ("Don't let a crisis go to waste!"), he's also setting the stage for Wall St, and positioning himself to enact the IEEFA*.

Not even negotiating is very strange.  I'm a bit nervous that if Obama really is a plant or a communist or reptilian or whatever, that he will declare the risk of default as a "national security threat" and use that as an excuse for "temporary emergency measures" to remove Congress and declare himself ruler of all.

Arrest him for being a traitor to the US and the constitution.  He hands over all the NSA raw data on US citizens to a foreign power without any legal restrictions.    That agreement with Israel was signed in March 2009.  That is the work of a traitor.  

“The National Security Agency routinely shares raw intelligence with Israel without first sifting it to remove information about US citizens,” theGuardian article by Glenn Greenwald, Laura Poitras and Ewen MacAskill reports.

The undated five-page memo records an agreement reached between the NSA and its Israeli counterpart, the ISNU (Israeli Sigint National Unit), in March 2009, during the first months of the Obama administration.

While insisting that the Israelis operate with deference to the US Constitution and law, the memo adds, “This agreement is not intended to create any legally enforceable rights and shall not be construed to be either an international agreement or a legally binding instrument according to international law.” In other words, in practice ISNU and the Israeli intelligence agency Mossad are free to do as they please.

It's been an open secret for decades that the Israeli's have been extremely active against the US in regular and industrial espionage. Why on earth would the US government collude with the Mossad?

Tue, 10/08/2013 - 15:36 | 4035085 JustObserving
JustObserving's picture

Let's be exact.  It is not collusion.  It is spying on all US citizens (including US Congress, White House, all judges including Supreme Court judges) and handing all the data to a foreign power without any legal restrictions.  It is handing US sovereignty on a silver platter to a foreign power.

It is the ultimate in treason.  So the NY Times, Wall Street Journal, ABC, CBS, NBC etc. will not touch this story.  Yes, we are in the land of the free and the home of the brave.

Why do you think he met with Dimon, Blankfein and the other banker slugs last week.

The public must feel as much pain as possible during this farce.

Anychance he starts off by saying he is a filthy, lying cocksucker, not that there is anything wrong with that.


Or perhaps an explantion why Blankfein, Corzine, Thain, Lewis, Fuld, Dimon, etc etc etc. are FREE?


I wonder if OFUCK will address his 2006 failure of leadership statement regarding raising the debt ceiling or if the useless press corp even ask.


I can't wait to see if the truckers can arrest a CONgress critter on Friday.  Now THAT would be inspiring.

I'll bet Lindsey Graham scheduled the hamster removed from his ass this weekend.



Truckers plan 3-day slowdown on D.C. Beltway


Enraged by low wages, fuel prices, regulations, the government shutdown, the debt ceiling, President Obama and "the corruption that is destroying America," the "Truckers Ride for the Constitution" aims to tie up three lanes of Interstate 495 circling the nation's capital, with big rigs traveling 55 mph, an organizer told U.S. News & World Report.

Tactics are clear to see:  Whine and stamp your feet until you get your way.  If that doesn't work have David Axelrod and Valery Jarret write up a terse little speech  to read off the the teleprompter blaming everyone in the universe EXCEPT BHO.

Rinse, repeat, the gullible sheep eat it up every time.

to take all those guns away!

I was re elected, so I can do whatever is I want to.

I'm not really sure what I want to do, so I don't do it. Except play golf. I do like that. And do it.

We've got the flop and the turn card.  Both sides are all in.

No more bluffing; no more looking for clues on the opponent's face; no more intimidating stares.

It's all about the river card now.

I told my wife this morning that I was NOT GETTING OUT OF BED unless she made me bacon, eggs, lightly toasted english muffins, fresh squeezed orange juice, freshly ground coffee, half a grapefruit - lightly sugared, AND I REFUSE TO NEGOTIATE ABOUT IT!!.

She said she wanted to talk about it, but I TOLD HER NO!  I AM NOT GOING TO TALK ABOUT IT!

So, I'm still here in bed.

My boss called and I told him that it's my wife's fault that I can't get out of bed.

Can you believe that the jerk blamed me?!
