Obama: GOP ‘Will Not Collect
A Ransom In Exchange For Not
Crashing The American Economy’

Mediaite, by Noah Rothman

During a press conference in the White House on Monday, President Barack Obama warned Congressional Republicans not to hold the debt ceiling limit hostage in order to secure concessions on spending cuts from the White House. He spelled out what not increasing the debt limit would mean, and said clearly that the GOP in Congress “will not collect a ransom” from the president by holding the debt ceiling hostage. (Snip) “If Congressional Republicans refused to pay America’s bills on time, Social Security checks and veterans’ benefits will be delayed,” Obama said. “We might not be able

Without a bulldog press Obama can work his will unchallenged.

The low information voters (morons) don´t have a clue and happily dance to his merry tune.

This is the power the Dems hold.

I watched him today. I usually can´t stand to listen to him, but today I heard something different in his trying to repeat the memorized answer he was given to blather.

He sounded scared, really scared.

It was like being caught doing something wrong by his mother and he sounded like a scared little kid trying to lie his way out of a situation.

For the millionth time, the Republicans do not have the power to do much. Boehner is incorrectly spelled by some moronns on this site and if they watched, read and listened they would have heard John and Mitch out in front. Posters denigrating our side are a big part of the problem.

#14, he didn´t sound scared at all to me. If anything, he sounded comfortably arrogant, condescending and lecturing to the unwashed like the fifth-rate university whatever he was. I half-expected him to declare that Executive Orders would be used if Congress would not do his bidding and to fold his arms like Mussolini. (He will anyway). Welcome to Fascist America.

I don´t see the GOP getting anything out of the debt ceiling talks. Evil people in the WH can cause tremendous pain on the public and blame it on the Republicans. With Lew at Treasury doing Obama´s bidding on what gets funded we could see real harm inflicted beyond stopping social security checks.

Guess the name-calling of Republicans is down to a science, eh? It´s a shame that some don´t seem to have as much disgust for the criminal enterprise known as the obama-administration and his minions in the "msm", as they do while constantly denigrating the Republicans in Congress. No wonder the GOP can´t seem to win an argument. They are surrounded by cheap-shotters on all sides, including some "conservatives". The "msm", the demonrats, obama and every "news" network with the possible exception of (at times) FNC, are on constant attack. That is the same attitude that got the most anti-American president in the history of this country RE-Elected! Pathetic.

OK--I´ve not read this whole thing, but the headline makes no sense to me. Let´s see:
The GOP is supposedly holding "Not Crashing the Economy" hostage. Zero is refusing to "pay" the ransom they supposedly want...? So, he´s saying he has the power to keep the economy from crashing, but he´s not going to do it?

Puh-leeze. This article *should* have begun w/ an ´opening sentence´ gleaned from another of today´s news articles...

"“Late Friday evening, Deputy Director Zients confirmed that for the fourth time in five years, the president’s budget will not be submitted in compliance with the law,”

So to recap, Obama demands ´no ransom!´ or he´ll not obey law?

The only surprise here is that Obama hasn´t forcibly taken over David Letterman´s job so he can posture nightly on national television...

The real hostages are the few popular government programs that he listed. He is signalling that he will cut the muscle - the military pay etc and leave the fat - welfare programs, food stamps acorn etc - untouched when there is not enough money to go around. He is exactly like any municipal politician who makes the first cuts to fire and police protection so as to leave the useless pencil pushers untouched. I say lets have the showdown with this grifter now. Pass a budget showing where real cuts can be made to live within our means and then refuse to pass any increase in the debt ceiling. Let all the howling die down in a month or so then perhaps there will be some negotiations and less demagoguery.

I´m with #15 and #25 in being fed up with all the anti-Republican trash talk from self-described conservatives. A house divided against itself cannot stand. Many Republican officeholders are trying to resist the Marxist takeover. But Obama enjoys the long legacy of gradual change in our government which has resulted in an imperial presidency, with an unequal share of power. All it takes is for an evil opportunist with "audacity" to exploit the situation. We conservatives need to stand together to fight his takeover, not to undermine any and all efforts by our representatives to resist him.

Perhaps the posters criticizing the steers would not be so critical if the steers had won a single bout with the moron.

Why are they not bringing impeachment proceedings? Why are they not proposing any legislation to stop the guy? Why are they not cutting off funding to Zerocare? Many more questions could be asked. They are not weak because they appear to be weak. They really are weak and, in my opinion, just want to keep their cushy jobs.

Says the man trying to shut down 5% of US power while spending 10s of billions for expensive energy that can not compete. I personally would raise the debt ceiling $4 billion for every week he suspends ALL environmental rules. For a year delay of rule he has added, I would give him 108 billion. The economic growth would easily recover this amount. The GOP should throw this out and point out that this is more than he got from the ending the payroll tax holiday and tax on the rich combined.

The FBI is probing past legal work done by Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis, according to a report her Republican opponent’s campaign calls a “bombshell.” The Dallas Morning News reported Friday that documents “related to Sen. Wendy Davis’ work as a lawyer for the North Texas Tollway Authority are part of an FBI inquiry of the agency.” The news outlet said it’s unclear how much this investigation revolves around Davis, the Democratic nominee for governor. “It’s not clear whether Davis’ work for the tollway authority is a focus of the FBI or only part of the material collected in connection

Researchers at Princeton and Northwestern universities have pored over 1,800 US policies and concluded that America is an oligarchy. Instead of looking out for the majority of the country’s citizens, the US government is ruled by the interests of the rich and the powerful, they found. No great surprises there, then. But the government is not the only American power whose motivations need to be rigourously examined. Some 2,400 miles away from Washington, in Silicon Valley, Google is aggressively gaining power with little to keep it in check. It has cosied up to governments around the world so effectively that its chairman,

Then-Sens. Joe Biden and John Kerry were both opposed to Hillary Clinton’s 1993 health-care reform program, according to documents released by the Clinton presidential library. Clinton marked a handwritten “No” beside Biden’s name on Clinton’s list of Capitol Hill lawmakers that she needed to win over for her universal health care law, known as the “Clinton health plan” or “Hillarycare,” to pass. John Kerry, meanwhile, was marked with a “Probably not.” “Hillarycare” ended up dying in the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1994 without coming to a floor vote. As vice president, Biden has been a loyal supporter of the Obama administration’s

Wayne Crews of the Competitive Enterprise Institute and Alexis de Tocqueville, author of the classic Democracy in America, were born in different times and places. But the French aristocrat and American think tanker have the measure of the federal behemoth in the age of Obama. Writing in 1835, Tocqueville eloquently predicted how it would function, while Crews today supplies in his annual compilation of federal rules and regulations, “10,000 Commandments,” the hard numbers that describe the behemoth´s contemporary reach and costs.

Prominent Washington correspondents are accusing President Obama and his aides of knowingly stretching the truth on issues like the so-called women´s pay gap just to create controversy and keep issues -- and the president -- relevant. Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus kicked off the attack last week when she blasted as “demagoguery” the administration´s tactics during the pay gap debate. “The level of hyperbole -- actually, of demagoguery -- that Democrats have engaged in here is revolting,” she wrote. CBS White House Correspondent Major Garrett then weighed in this week in his National Journal

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'
