Obama Walks Out Of Tense Debt Ceiling Meeting

Post by Guest on Wed Jul 13, 2011 11:16 pm

President Barack Obama walked out of a contentious meeting in ongoing talks to raise the nation's debt limit on Wednesday, an aide tells Reuters.

Politico reports that House Majority Leader Eric Cantor said the president stormed out of the negotiating session with top congressional lawmakers.

The Hill reports that House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi disputed Cantor's account of what occurred at the end of the meeting.

"Cantor's account of tonight's meeting is completely overblown," a House Democratic aide told HuffPost. "For someone who knows how to walk out of a meeting, you'd think he['d] know it when he saw it. Cantor rudely interrupted the President three times to advocate for short-term debt ceiling increases while the President was wrapping the meeting. This is just more juvenile behavior from him and Boehner needs to rein him in, and let the grown-ups get to work."

A GOP aide told Reuters after Wednesday's meeting that the president would not renegotiate his bottom line as to what he would compromise in the ongoing discussions. According to the aide Obama said, "I have reached the point where I say enough." He reportedly added, "Would Ronald Reagan be sitting here? I've reached my limit. This may bring my presidency down, but I will not yield on this

“Obama lit him up. Cantor sat in stunned silence,” said an official in the meeting. “It was incredible. If the public saw Obama he would win in a landslide.”

surprise
Cantor explained to reporters that he told Obama he would hold multiple votes on short-term debt limit increases to allow more time to negotiate a final deal. Democratic officials said this is when Obama “lit into” Cantor for 10 minutes while the No. 2 Republican in the House “sat there speechless.”

“He said he had sat here long enough. ‘No other president, Ronald Reagan wouldn’t sit here like this,’ and he’s reached the point that something’s got to give,” Cantor said of Obama’s final exchange. “So he said, ‘You’ve either got to compromise on your dollar-for-dollar insistence or you’ve got to compromise on the big deal.’ Which means raising taxes.

“He said to me: ‘Eric, don’t call my bluff. I’m going to the American people with this.’ I was somewhat taken aback,” the Virginia Republican said.

Cantor said the president then “shoved back, said, ‘I’ll see ya tomorrow,’ and he walked out.”

Good for him. Stick it to them like they've been doing to you. Expose them for what they really are.

wow, this is almost better than watching General Hospital! LOL

I'm glad the President isn't taking crap from Cantor. The lack of respect the GOP has shown to our president, whether they "like" him or not, is disgusting.

Yeah, Obama did alright.

But imagine what Jesse Ventura would have done to Cantor

Well, maybe. Hopefully. But let's remember he still seems to be arguing in favor of cutting Social Security as part of his big $4B plan. I'm not about to cheer for that idea.

That would be a 4T as in Trillion.
What Obama is doing is offering a compromise, something the GOP has not done nor will.

He has never said he would cut social security BUT I dont have any faith that he won't offer that.

However, I think the tide is turning. He may be and SHOULD be beyond that now. If he goes to the people with it he won't have to cut it because they will support him overwhelmingly.

Well, the Teavangelists are certainly screwing up the works, that's for sure. And now the Corporations and Banks are screaming at their paid for candidates to get this done and get it done soon. So, we can see how committed they are to jobs, cutting the deficit and insuring this doesn't happen again. They are not!

All of this debt ceiling drama was designed to distract everyone from talking about the real issues like the 99ers.

They will never help the long term unemployed and there is no help coming and the sooner you all face that fact the better off you will be.

When Obama said he wanted global wealth redistribution he wasn't joking

Read about that yesterday. It's not about adding weeks for the 99ers, it's about allowing those laid off more recently to collect the extensions up to 72 or 99 weeks.

They do not want to help the 99ers, because if they helped us they'd have to admit that they're been leaving us out of their unemployment figures. Adding us back in to the official UI figure would blow it well up over 10%, and no way Obama is going to let that happen when he's in campaign mode.

The CBC, or Congressional Black Caucus, are the only ones in Congress still talking about helping the 99ers, but in a worrisome move, recently even they have started talking specifically about black unemployment, rather than unemployment overall.
