    Obama, Boehner at war over debt talk collapse

    Obama, Boehner at war over debt talk collapse - Political Hotsheet - CBS News

    With eleven days before the August 2 deadline, talks to negotiate a deal to raise the debt limit have broken down, leaving the United States on the cusp of a possible economic catastrophe.

    "We have run out of time," Mr. Obama said in acknowledging the breakdown.

    House Speaker John Boehner walked away from negotiations Friday, complaining that Mr. Obama would not agree to Republican demands that the deal not include any tax increases. Shortly after Boehner made his decision public, Mr. Obama, appearing frustrated, appeared before reporters to explain what had been on the table and hammer Boehner for walking away from an "extraordinarily fair deal."
    Boehner? I hope it was worth it, you worthless sac (spelling intentional) of ****.

    Nope. He called a press conference and cried. Prick.

    Here's what Obama is probably saying about him behind closed doors. And more.

    "If you do not have any revenues, if you have no revenues at all, what that means is more of a burden on seniors, more drastic cuts to education, more drastic cuts to research, bigger cuts to services for the middle class. It doesn't ask anything of corporate jet owners, oil and gas companies, and people like me, who've done very well." Republicans, he said, were demanding "a package that would effectively require massive cuts to Social Security, Medicare, and domestic spending, while not asking anything from the wealthiest of this country."

    "If that's their only answer it's going to be pretty difficult to figure out where to go."

    See Obama was the nice adult here just wanting higher taxes and more government spending and Boehner said "woah man, we're like way over budget here, and like no dude, we gotta stop spending"

    So all the little Obamalytes are now going all emo.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    It's either rule or ruin with them. They are so out of touch with mainstream America. Bought and paid for by interest groups and lobbyists and too pussy to stand up to the tea party whackos in fear of losing votes. Screw the people.

    Well, I hate to say it but we deserve it. American's voted these clowns into the office before the last pile of ****, they were previously kicked out for, was even dry. read 'em and weep America. You wanted 'em, you got 'em. Those who forget the past are doomed to repeat it and as sure as a dog returns to his own vomit, Americans let the GOP shysters back in.

    You get what you deserve.

    Obama has been President for two and a half years, had a complete majority for two years, and didn't see this coming?

    And it's all John Boehner's fault, huh?

To say this is a one sided failure just seems to ignore what should be obvious to all. Even partisans on both sides if they want to be a bit honest.

    The President gave them everything, against the will of his own party - and they still said no. Therefore.

    Sucks to be Boner.
