Obama ends meeting after GOP proposes short-term debt-ceiling fix - latimes.com“I suggested we were so far apart I didn’t see in the time before us how we get to where he wants us to be,” Cantor told reporters after the nearly two-hour session.
Cantor said the president "walked out," but a Democratic official familiar with the meeting disputed that account, adding that Cantor had repeatedly interrupted Obama to press his short-term proposal.
“Left abruptly is perfectly fair," the official said. "But the meeting was over--in no sense did he walk out on it.’’
And before leaving, he accused both sides of posturing.
Yes, sir. The President said "Eric, don't call my bluff. I'm taking this to the American people."
