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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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 hold it that a little rebellion now and then is a good thing, and as necessary in the political world as storms in the physical.  Unsuccessful rebellions indeed generally establish the incroachments on the rights of the people which have produced them. An observation of this truth should render honest republican governors so mild in their punishment of rebellions, as not to discourage them too much. It is a medicine necessary for the sound health of government." - Thomas Jefferson to James Madison, Paris, January 30, 1787

On and on we hear of the rotteness of the "tea party".

 Perhaps you should give some of the real ones some credit in actually being the last bulwark against the Merkin Caeser.

 Boehner is a tool of the usual shit that has gutted us for decades. There are the real ones that will not bow, so he doesn't have the votes to sell the people that elected the representatives that vowed to stop the goomint from absolute control of all facets of our lives.

 Yeah, I am a pollyanna and I will be sold out as always, but there just might be some remnant that takes the mandate of their voters seriously. This will be the last time for this unless the fight is to the end.

 The congress is powerless forever if they back down now.

Obamacare will fail the system.  Under the pre-existing conditions rule, any hospital admitting an uninsured patient, with a significant and expensive illness such as cancer, will simply sign the patient up on the exchange and pay the premium.  It's a great return on investment for the hospital. It's like buying fire insurance after your house is burning out of control.  Insurance companies will all be out of business soon, and then we'll get single payer government run medical care.
