House Democrats Emerge From Obama Meeting

Tyler Durden's picture

And anyone hoping that a quick, evening solution would emerge today will need to roll over their hopes for one more day.


Finally, it appears that the resolution to the debt ceiling, now due to hit in one week, will be a 6 week can kicking to late November, early December so the whole thing can repeat again, while the government probably potentially shut throughout:

Will Obama agree to "negotiate" a mere 1.5 month debt ceiling extension? Wait and see tomorrow.

CD emerged from the bathroom determined not to lose any more hair. CD will happily negotiate with Rogaine after hair loss stops.

Oops, I've been out of town in Tallahassee the past few days, must'a missed that one, sorry...

Don't feel too bad.  Obama didn't hear about either until it was on the news, just like the rest of us.  He wasn't even in the room the whole time.  And, of course, it's the Republicans' fault whatever that bad thing was they just told him about.

Perhaps I'll start taking the Democrats seriously only when they re-reaffirm their determination to end the government partial shutdown.

However, they have to pinky swear that they really, really mean it.

johnQpublic's picture

would you notice the government shutdown if you turned off the tv, radio, and computer?

I'd like to notice multiple laser dots on those politicians then hear some popping sounds.

Thus the stormtroopers laying razor wire around public spaces in DC.

Notice how Dems started wanting to talk the day the Dear Leader's poll numbers cratered into the 30's.

No, you haven't noticed anything yet.

 If the House of Representatives caves on this you will never have any tether on the Executive.

 The goddamned Repukes glorified the Executive when they were out, thus laying the foundation for the last fight now. The "Tea Party" which is hardly Republican Party in the true libertarian faction of same has made their stand now and need some help so that the Executive cannot declare total victory against the small amount of representation that we have left.

 Rather than bithching from the sidelines perhaps you can offer your support for the last bastion of a check on executive power.


and another reason, the "tea party" is the only voice left against Yellen and the abdication of the goomint to the financial interests. It will die asno one cares to actively stop it other than the few libertarian types that got elected on the last cycle. They ain't perfect, but that's all that we have in that asteroid target.

They walked out of the meeting once they agreed on what was going to be served for lunch at tomorrow's meeting. That's all they got accomplished today, I'm sure.

These fucking house democrap POS - starting with that loser/LIAR Steny Hoyer are worthless - they have no power. 

What was the point in meeting with them?  No one listens to what they say anyways.

P.S.  I get it - it was so noone breaks ranks.  Good luck with that one -House Dems are pansies.

ronaldawg's picture

Here - I'll give you another chance to down arrow me.

Obama can't negotiate - it is not in his DNA - he will get rolled.

Therefore he is trying to bring all the players to the table with him - so that it is not a one to one negotiation with Bo(h)ner.

Why else wouldn't he and Harry Reid refuse to negotiate.

P.S.  Also Pelosi just stated that she does not know what the Republicans want to raise the debt limit - Huh?  How about defunding or delaying Obamacare.

JUST SHUT THE WHOLE GOVERNMENT DOWN until these clowns come to the negotiating table in good faith.  NO MORE LYING OBAMA.

Republicans: Can I burn down your house.

Obama: No


Republicans: Ok then - only the second floor.

Obama: No


Republicans: Ok - just the garage.

Obama: No


Republicans: OK lets sit down and discuss what we are going to burn down.

Obama: No


Republicans: 'YOU WON'T NEGOTIATE!'

im seeing this shit all over the place... what is this the SEIU talking points pamphlet?

Serenity Now's picture

Obama made an analogy that if you offered to buy someone's house, and they didn't give you the price you wanted, then you would threaten to burn down the house.

The stupid burns.

Good grief, another troll made it past the captcha. Time to switch the format to a short economic or history quiz!

No, no, no.

The problem is not with Bo(h)ner.

It is with Putin.  You know - Obama has a monstrous case of penis envy when it comes to Putin, so he is trying to man up by pushing somebody - anybody around.

It's all Putin's fault.  The same way that it is all W's fault.

On a serious note, we have had a special debt resolution commision on every by-election since Prez Clinton in '94.  If you can't do the math, that was twenty years ago, and five special attempts - the last one being Erskine-Bowles (sp?).  Sure it will be different this time.  And it can be resolved in just the six weeks of a short term extension until December 1.  It hasn't been resolved regardless of who holds the Oval Office or what permutation of political party controls the House/Senate.  The longer it goes on, the worse the collapse will be.  The Pubs would be doing everybody a favor by just closing shop until post 2014 elections.  Let the chips fall where they may - we would be better off.  Read what Denninger has to say - "sine dei" I believe he describes.

Riiiiight, Pelosi... just like we have QE infinity we need the debt ceiling to be lifted? DC Infinity?

DaddyO's picture

Listen, with Obummer's poll numbers in the toilet, they have to find a way out of this mess with their pride in tack...

Pelosi is only a mouthpiece for the real behind the scenes power.

If VJ says it's ok to give a little on time frames for a "compromise" then Obummer will back it and make everyone think it was his idea.

Doesn't matter what these clowns say - in the eyes of the world right now, the US is Zimbabwe.

zimbabwe is exceptional in comparison.

Yes, Robert Mugabe doesn't stutter like Obama

And Mugabe has those super-multi-colourful African shirts he wears at the Zimbabwe political rallies ... Maybe Barack O should consult Mugabe's tailor, it might help fire up O's supporters

Mugabe has some great moments denouncing Western imperialism too, like that wonderful speech where he talked about « Bush and Blair ... the unholy alliance ! » for how they manufactured the fake false-flag evidence to invade Iraq

And beyond that, we are sure of where Mugabe was born, went to school, and that he is a Christian and not a Muslim ...

I missed the part about spending cuts?

kito's picture

obama will just declare a national emergency, raise the debt ceiling, imprison the republicans for treason, declare martial law, confiscate all weapons, mandate curfews, etc. 

so relax, the debt ceiling will be raised!
