    So the darling of the Tea-Nutcase Republicans offered a debt limit increase scenario at the July 13 debt ceiling raise talks at the White House.

    South Chicago Obama could make the point that Republican Jewish(?) negotiator Cantor had just highlighted the phony stance of the Tea-Nuts. It was all a charade, and it had not worked.

    Debt Limit Talks Blow Up

    Speaker Boehner and Minority Leader McConnell, even, are probably on a more Reagan-Trajectory path themselves!

    What does the fact that Cantor is Jewish have to do with anything?

    Won't Cantor make a fortune if the economy goes south?

    The President knows that he's won and Cander can kiss his shiny black ass!

    Cander is desparately wiggling with this short term deal.

    The Repugs have 2 choices:

    1. Raise the debt ceiling and take whatever budget deal the President gives them.

    or

    2. Raise the debt ceiling and take whatever budget deal the President gives them.

    " Update 3: Reuters is reporting that Obama would not back down on a comprehensive deal to raise debt ceiling, even if it jeopardizes his reelection chances.

    "Would Ronald Reagan be sitting here," he reportedly asked. "I've reached my limit. This may bring my presidency down, but I will not yield on this.'' "


    Why is it terrible for Cantor to walk out but not when Obama does it?

    The truth is that Obama wants the tax rate increase on the rich and cannot accept the fact that the repub House just won't pass that. If no agreement is reached soon, I think the House wil pass something along the lines of cut, cap, and balance and dare the dems in the Senate and Obama to stop it. Or maybe they do a short term deal for 60 days or something, which Obama has said he won't accept. But would he really veto that?

    Frankly, nobody's lookng very good here.

    I believe the article states that Obama walked out of the meeting--not Cantor.

    You are correct, Obama was the one that walked out today. I was referring to the time Cantor walked out of negotiations a couple of weeks ago. The left was all up in arms about it then.

    Wiseacre is referencing last month when Cantor walked out of the dead-end meeting ( with Biden..lol ) and was crucified for it and now the president has but all is well....:lol:

    President Barack Obama abruptly left today's negotiating session to raise the debt ceiling and lower the deficit, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) told reporters after the meeting.

    Cantor said Obama walked-out "angrily" after he offered to support two separate debt ceiling votes — a proposal Obama had repeatedly said he would veto.

    "Eric, don't call my bluff," Obama said according to Cantor moments before storming out of the meeting. "I'm going to take this to the American people."

    Cantor said all progress in the debt talks has been erased.

    Update: According to Fox News, a senior Democratic aide pushed back at Cantor's account, saying "Congressman Cantor is the last person who should complain of people abruptly walking out of meetings."

    Cantor publicly quit the deficit talks led by Vice President Joe Biden last month.
