    Obama Rejects Latest House GOP Offer

    Just in case any of you are wondering who is actually responsible for the continuing on-going Govt. shut down, it's the guy who was offered literally everything he wanted, but for a shorter time, with the request that he pretty-please be willing to negotiate in the meantime on something - anything, and still said no ; because he thinks that the longer more people are in pain, the better off he does politically.


    President Obama used his weekly radio address to reject the latest offer from House Republicans to end the fiscal stalemate. The outline of their proposal was released Friday and would have reopened government through December and lifted the debt ceiling for six weeks...

    On Friday, Senate Republicans floated the outlines of their own plan to end the standoff. Their proposal would lift the debt ceiling through the end of January and reopen the government for six months. The dueling proposals put Obama in the enviable position of choosing between his opponents. He can reject one proposal and still look Presidential by negotiating on a competing offer. Obama said Friday he would look for the "best deal."
    On Saturday, the House Republicans are meeting to finalize the details of the plan they released Friday. Obama's rejection of even the outlines of that plan makes the next moves by the House uncertain. The Senate, meanwhile, moves back to center-stage of the debate with a vote Saturday afternoon on a one-year increase in the debt ceiling. ...


    There you have it. The next time anyone in the Administration complains about the shutdown or coming debt limit, remind them that they value it less than the opportunity to perhaps divide some of their political opposition.

    Breitbart! Oh dear God.

    The real story is the GOP didn't offer to restart the government at all. It only offered to raise the debt ceiling for 6 weeks.

    In short, Breitbart's report is false. And you actualy repeated it!

    Perfect.

    I'm not wondering who shut down the government. I know it is some ideological nut wads who take Ayn Rand to heart. Whoa six whole weeks in a nation that has been around 200+ years.

    It doesn't even end the government shutdown and you still somehow think it contains everything Obama wanted.

    Why is that?

    Wait. Nevermind. You don't think that. ****ing Breitbard told you that.

    Yeah, they offered to raise the debt limit, but not to open the government. The GOP are children.

    If you don't wonder, one must question what informs what you consider to be your "thinking," and how exactly that you "know" what you imagine to be true.

    No, ultimately it's the Electorate's queer notion that Arithmetic can be altered by silly slogans such as "hope'n'chage," and other self-cannibalistic swill that have led us to a place where we've filled Congress and the White House with people detached from Reality. By the way, since Ayn Rand has proven to be a much better prophet than say, Kinsey or Marx, you might want to take a little does of Reality yourself and adjust your thinking.

    This farce might be the end of the Republican party. Most Americans are starting to see the break with reality.

    Ayn Rand readers legitimately believe the world will be a better place once everybody is an asshole.

    That is not vey lucid on your part. And we are talking about the same chain smoking Ayn Rand who spoke of smoking and Social Security and then wound up taking advantage of Social Security when she was dying of lung cancer due to smoking.
