Yesterday we noted that for a decision that was supposed to be a political disaster it was rather odd that Obama for America decided to spend real money running ads paid ads on MSNBC urging their folk to call congress asking them to stop the GOP in the house.
Now that the house vote has taken place with only one GOP member voting no. You would think the president would be grinning after all if the MSM is right the GOP has fallen into the trap and has all but assured him of a possible democrat house and senate for his final two years.
Yet the headline at Twitchy says it all
and he will NOT negotiate
President Obama phoned Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) on Friday to tell him he will not negotiate with Republicans on the debt ceiling, according to a readout provided by the Speaker’s office.
Boehner told the president he was “disappointed” to hear his position, according to an aide.
Glenn Reyonlds nails it:
Maybe Vladimir Putin can offer Obama a face-saving way to climb down.
If only Putin WAS the speaker of the house, perhaps then we’d see more of that flexibility we heard about pre-election.
He seems very upset for a political winner or maybe that’s just me.
Update: And the GOP seems to have different e-mail lists for different results too.
Last day of the pay week and still haven’t hit the $100 mark toward that $305 paycheck.
Your help to change that would be most appreciated.
