For one just about old enough to join AARP, President Obama is acting like a two-year whose favorite teething toy has been appropriated by a new born unwelcome sister.
As reported in part, at the link:
Tensions boiled over Wednesday, when Obama heatedly rejected Republican House Majority Leader Eric Cantor's push for a short-term deal anchored on spending cuts, according to key Republican and Democratic aides.
Obama said he would veto such a stopgap measure, warned Cantor "don't call my bluff," and declared himself ready to take his case to US voters, said aides on both sides, who described the events on condition of anonymity.
Republican aides described Obama as storming out of the meeting in a huff, while their Democratic counterparts said that the presidential rebuke left Cantor chastised and speechless.
"I've reached my limit. This may bring my presidency down, but I will not yield on this," Obama said, according to a Republican aide.
The president's message was "enough posturing," said a Democratic aide, who said Obama did not storm out but left because the meeting had ended.
An aide to Republican House Speaker John Boehner later signaled that the lawmaker was prepared to accept a short-term deal in which spending cuts outweighed the debt limit increase and tax hikes were off the table.”
Note that the arrogant, self-consumed Obama sees the worse case scenario as something that might “bring my presidency down.”
As usual, it is always about Obama. What about the devastation that would be visited upon 300 million Americans? What about the effect on the global economy?
None of that matters to Barack Obama. Its all about his super-inflated ego and the shame of being forced to do something right for a change.
To hell with your presidency, sir. Your incompetence and inability to see the truth has already rendered your presidency a colossal failure not worth saving!
