Yep, it's all Obama's fault. How? I have no idea.

I've said it before but I fail to see how the Repbulicans are compromising at all. They say they are, but I don't see how exactly.

From what I've heard Cantor today started to push a short-term plan (ie, not really a solution) and that was the end of talks in today's meeting.

The whole thing seems like a charade at this point but to put all the blame on Obama is just wrong, IMO.

Debt Ceiling Talks Hit an Impasse as Eric Cantor Walks Out

Let me guess. It was noble, strong, and the right thing to do when the GOP took their ball and went home. It is just a loser move when Obama does it too.


I don't think this has anything to do with the GOP or partisanship at all.

This is Obama acting like a child when the welfare of this nation is on the line. Hell, if he's not willing to stick it out and work this out, then he deserves to burn at the polls.

I wish his approval rating would go down to 27% like Bush's. That might be a reality shock to Mr. Obama.

And the fact that he said, "I'll go to the people", just shows how blind he is to reality. The people want a compromise, or a solution. Not more double speak and threats of how bad this will get.

It is never a noble move to end talks by abruptly walking out on either of their part, but the old saying "two wrongs don't make a right" also applies here. I have no love for Obama, but as the leader of this country he should be held to a higher standard.

Yet still no equal condemnation of the GOP fellers that did the exact same thing coming from you.
Hypocrites much?
Why would I condemn? I want the talks to fall apart. I want the ceiling to be lowered not raised. I am all for a default. Let's get this thing moving so we can get some real change; maybe then we can have some hope for the future of our children.

The topic of this thread is about Obama walking out on the talks. I am sure there is a thread on the GOP walking out on the talks, and that would be the proper place for those statements. Where are your statements condemning Obama??? .... Speaking of hypocrisy.

aug 2 is the deadline

the deal will get done aug 1

just hold on and don't lose your lunch, both sides are looking for pressure points and signs of weakness.

sadly, the next step will be negotiating through the media so get ready for way more of obama, boehner and cantor than you ever would want on your TV

That is it right there. Why is it acting like a child when Obama does it but not when the GOP did it?

I always hope that whoever is president does a good job for the people and enjoys high approval for it. You have sad hopes for the country I live in.


And the fact that he said, "I'll go to the people", just shows how blind he is to reality. The people want a compromise, or a solution. Not more double speak and threats of how bad this will get.


Ok then. Who did Cantor go to? The Koch brothers?

Because the OP and subsequent posts in this thread are all condemning Obama for doing something that the GOP has been doing. That is why. Apparently you are a fan of Obama then?

I think it all a charade. Look how the people all are polarized. "Oh my Gosh, Obama walked out of talks!" They are all putting on a show and you all seem to be pretty entertained, so it's a good show.

They want this all to breakdown for a reason. I can't say which reason or how many reasons, but it's a show for the people, and moving towards a finale.

Let's be smarter than their antics and look beyond the shock of dare I say it....The President walking out of talks.

So, now I'll go find a thread where people are talking about the coming collapse, since that seems to be where they're leading us.

Actually, you need to read your own OP and the posts that come after it.

This right here is why there is no headway in these meetings. It comes down to a "My way or the highway" attitude, and we all know that isn't how things get done. This kind of action from the leader of this country makes me sick.

I can see why hes upset, if this doesn't go well he'll secure infamy in the history books. but he's definitely not handling himself well.

-more like a kid on the playground.

such an attitude is expected from obama...he's like a little kid...I'm sure he's gonna go stomp around in his room and throw a temper tantrum until that coloring book on his bed looks appealing once again

What a big baby. What kind of example is this?!

These are our leaders?! This is certainly not assuring and should be an example of just how out of control the problem is.


See the theme you started and one that continued is all about how bad Obama is for doing this yet, he was not the one to do it first. I want to know why when he does it, it is so bad but when your hero GOP does it, not so much?

Please look up hypocrite. I never condemned anyone for walking out so I have no obligation to even anything up on my own. I just want to know why you all think Obama is acting like a child for doing what Cantor and Boehner did as well. Are they acting like children too or is this just part of the game they are all playing and picking on either side for doing this one thing just seems silly?

Yes, and by doing so I stuck to the main part of the topic. This is about The President of The United States of America the highest authoritative power in all the land being held to a higher standard than a congressman or a senator.

It is the Republicans who want to cut some budgets that are allotted for services to the public yet it is Obama who is being nailed here for having a hard line that there should be no budget cut in those services. Obama can't do anything good in this site.

He has no idea he has lost the "people?"

In early 2009, that threat would have carried some weight, but not now! Let him plead his case to the people with his false fear-mongering, and toothless threats! The people are already suffering; we are already feeling the inevitable depression; we are already in the mud, we are eager to let the house of cards fall, and let the rebuilding begin!

Go ahead Mr. President. Let them call your bluff. Shut the whole dam thing down. Send the Fed employees home. Hold the checks of the soldiers and the seniors.

Lets get this show on the road!


"Lost the people???" But, but...hasn't he just raised 87 gazillion dollars in the first quarter, almost ALL in less than $250 dollar (wink, wink) donations??? Because "people" just can't get enuf of Barry...Can we PLEASE have four (or fore!) more years??? (And yes...this is sarcasm. He has lost the "American people" but somehow, even in HIS mess of an economy, he has received 80 some mil from the faithful. As Obama's campaign says, WTF?

Not true. Obama should stand fast on the removing the tax loopholes/deductions/credits, etc. The Dems are right on the money there. It hasn't helped the economy, it has only hurt the debt. BUT, Obama needs to cave on the Budget cuts and let the Reps have them.

The only way all of this becomes relevant is if both sides get their way on the most radical points. We absolutely must have the tax revenue, and we absolutely must have the budget cuts, even if they hurt. Without both, it is just lip service, and no real progress can be made.

My worst fear? A COMPROMISE!! Please, no more compromises. If Obama gives up the tax hikes, and the Reps give up the budget cuts, and they all vote to raise the debt ceiling, then just kiss the country good bye, and start brushing up on your Chinese.

New facts I just learned

Obama is invested very heavily in Treasury bills... As a private citizen he
Is banking on Americas success IMO.

Cantor is invested short in Americas performance

I learned this from a Tory here in London



It tells me Cantor will literally benefit from Americas failure, Obama is banking on it's success.
A shill trying to kill America would not put his nest egg in a position that he was trying to
Demolish, while a person capable of initiating a poor result would take a short position.

Obama ants-and-grasshoppers.blogspot.com...

Cantor www.sherdog.net...

I'm liking Obama's merit betting ON Americas success

Cantor benefits tanking the whole burrito

Says a lot...

Why do you always take Obamas downfalls and try to turn them into someone elses downfalls.

And why is it that anyone who dislikes this president is part of the GOP?
