No end in sight after White House meeting

reidboehnerobama-split-gn

President Obama and congressional leaders emerged from a White House meeting Wednesday evening with little sign of progress toward ending the government shutdown, a standstill both parties acknowledge could last weeks.

Following a 90-minute meeting, Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) told reporters Obama had “reiterated one more time tonight he will not negotiate.”

Boehner described the meeting — the first between the president and Capitol Hill leaders since the shutdown began Tuesday — as “nice” and “polite.” But he said ultimately Democrats should appoint conferees to negotiate a compromise.

“At some time, we’ve got to allow the process our Founders gave us to work out,” Boehner said.

    This entire thing is sickening and I never thought I would see Sean Hannity blatantly lie along with Cruze,Bachman and others. There is no problem with funding for veterans healthcare as it has already been allocated and set aside through 2014. They all tried to lump several issues together when the salacious act of B.O. to spit in the faces of WW2 veterans rights to visit their memorial along with two other pieces of legislation regarding the gulf war veterans similar to Agent Orange exposure will be taken up in a couple of weeks. Bachman lost all credibility when she was running for president and suggested that veterans were being overpaid for their service connected disabilities. She was warned by myself and many, many other veterans but like all politicians ignored the will of the people and her popularity disappeared nearly overnight.Ted Cruize KNOWS better but this evening on Hannity went along with the hoax just the same. All this does is to re- affirm that all politicians LIE and Hannity now has become that which he rails against. So just WHO can we trust anymore? Once B.O. repeals the 22nd amendment to the Constitution and is officially crowned king for life MAYBE we the people will wake up but by then it will have been too late. R.I.P. the United States of America? The next three weeks will be unlike anything we have seen.

    • Ed Orr

      It appears that even Republicans can’t handle the truth. Vote down a comment and then run like chicken schitt yellow bas turds….no point ,counter points as we are supposed to do which puts us above the Democrats. I get it!

  • NDAMIX

    One thing I’ve learned in life is that everything is negotiable. It doesn’t matter what it is. Playing hardball only gets you so far and will ultimately come back and bite you. When you deal in a fair and honest manner. Both parties walk away satisfied and future business becomes more pleasurable. The fact Obama says he won’t negotiate suggests he doesn’t understand how to get things done and make something happen.

    • Ed Shick

      I agree and if Obama The Commie and Harry ,dementia Reid will not negotiate , they have a problem , if they will not move Boehner should stand just as Tall ,, It is time to get our Economy under control , and about 80 % of the American People do not want Obama care,, I think it’s time to Ground Air Force One ,, The World War 2 Vet’s can not go see there Monument ,, Obama Should not return to Indonesia this Weekend ,, I Know that is where he is a Citizen ,, A lot of great Americans will never get a Chance to see the monument again ,, Fire the Traitor !!!

      • glwood

        Nothing is his up there. It belongs to We The People, but he thinks he can do what he wants. I am so sick of him and his lying ways

    • barb patton

      If comes back and bites —- it is to be hoped that it bites so hard that Obama is kicked out of his cushy job FOREVER.

    • SallyE

      He is totally incapable of leadership. Elections have consequences and I am beginning to believe that the American people will have to learn their lesson the hard way.

    • Jack Parker

      To the Dems, “negotiate” means give us everything we ask for and we will in turn give “promises” (which will never be fulfilled) for the things Repubs ask for. Naw. Let’s try hardball for a while ’till Odumbo breaks.

    • ABO

      Oh but he was a community organizer. He knows everything there is to know. And he’s our duly elected narcissist in chief, so he’s never, ever wrong, and certainly shouldn’t be expected to take responsibility for his screw- ups… the ones he never makes that is.

    • Doris C

      He is not a negotiator in any way shape or form. He is a good speaker and well groomed. Thats about all. I have a real problem listening to him when he gets excited and turns into Rev. Sharpton or Wright.

    • glwood

      obama doesn’t understand anything. He’s just a whiner so he can get his way and when that doesn’t happen, he just throws out another executive order

  • gene

    maybe now obama won’t be giving our tax money to the muslim countries.

    • Ed Shick

      Why do we give Foreign Aid to 192 Nations that mostly HATE us , but just like Harry Reid they are there for a Hand out!!!

    Now dumbocrats can say that they talked to republicans. But they will never say that is all that they said was no negotiations. Republicans should say the same when the debt limit increase comes up. Keep the government shut down. At least money is not being scuandered so badly.

  • Ellen

    The U.S. Senate is one big friggin’ DISGRACE! I believe we are going to see the biggest American backlash against these worthless dumbocraps that people have ever witnessed.
    We’re already seeing Americans abandon the worthless communist party known as dumbocraps.
    It’s all POLITICAL to them!
    Shame on all these lying WORTHLESS dumbocraps who passed the biggest worthless healthcare bill in our history in the middle of the night behind closed doors without caring about the outrage from most of the American people. Now, they continue to push it down our throats but it DOES NOT INCLUDE THEM or the white house scumbags or unions or other special interest groups who contribute to the dumbocrapic party.

    • joepotato

      It’s not only the Demcommies that are a disgrace… There’s plenty of shame + criminal indictments to go around… if the rule of law was still in effect for these elite Dung wads…

      Everyone is forgetting that Clittery Hinton designed her version of the Health Care Fiasco Act when she was supervising old Bill in the White House. Soeterro-Obama, who has never once had an original idea, or ever worked at anything in his life, took it over and his handlers ran with it, this most infamously unread idiotic legislation ever shoved up the collective rectums of the U.S. Population of Dullards. If you think bad now, if the Witch of Benghazi takes over in 2016 – you are all in for a severe drubbing such as has never been seen since the Days of Caligula. Remember one of her supporting voters in NYC when questioned by a jest TV Reporter if he knew who “Hitler,Goebels & Goering were?” -replied that he thought they were a firm of Jewish Stockbrokers on Wall Street. The Democrats are allegedly totally brilliant, aren’t they just ?

    • Caveat Emptor

      The Founders Congress took weeks to travel to and from their early days of Independence from around the former 13 Colonies. (Remember in those days there were no 57 States as Obama averred in his election campaigns that he had visited – he was probably confusing it with the origins of now Secretary John Kerry’s “Heinz 57 Varieties” that he had married into !). Anyway Congress only sat for a few months, and then they had to wend their ways back to their consitiuents to report on great decisions of possible significance. At least they did not “sit” all year and dream up inconsequential nonsences and legal pestilences requiring excessive taxation to conduct World Wide Wars and Socialist Mischief. If this Congress and even more Insane Senate is closed down for a year – that is an infinite number of pestilences that they can not inflict upon the populace of the U.S.A. But of course their President in those days was a releuctant president who would never have flaunted his one man megalomanic powers of Executive Privilege as this egomaniac from nowhere does. That is his very dangerous opportunity to give the entire non-Moslem part of our population a serious shafting.

  • joepotato

    Shutting down non essential govt functions may not be so bad after all (the BS wrangling)…

  • 1baronrichsnot1

    One thing! I live in an addition filled with gov’t workers of varying agencies, primarily though, space. These spacy folks had their motor homes out, cleaned them up on monday, and by 10AM tuesday were on their way to Keys, las vegas, mountains, spending their 3 times larger checks than private sector workers that we give them and their big retirement plans, cadillac health plans(opted out) we furnish and smiling like children out of school. They seem to be suffering immeasurably! We peons out here will wind up with brass health plans, wont pay anything we can just boast that we have plans! I understand that some navigators are saying, that people come on the web site (particular the under 30’s), and find out if it’s free or not, finding that they have to pay something, they click off and disappear! They will pay the $95, won’t buy until they are sick, can’t be refused, and hit the emerg. rooms. Who could have forseen this! Certainly not our illustrious leaders! They couldn’t track a bull elephant in a 4 foot snow! ACA is already crashing! Even after they stole 500 billion from medicare! CBO says implementation is to cost an additional 3 trillion. Another transfer of wealth, war on poverty, great society blunder that will not work! The last one cost us about 7 trillion in transfer of wealth, crashed into oblivion, overtaxation never works. Can you say LBJ?

  • DEANS

    BOEHNER, STAND YOUR GROUND. BE THE LEADER OF THE HOUSE YOU SHOULD HAVE BEEN BEING FOR THE LAST 5 YEARS. Don’t give in like you usually do.

  • afanaglenn

    It becomes obvious that perhaps millions of people will not sign up for the health care bill, the savings per year for three years covering a lot of medical costs, like for a hospital visit. Moreover, people who do not file income taxes, 50% of the nation most likely won’t even have to pay a fine. The bottom line…. the health care bill resolved nothing except it will be a substantial drain on middle income wage earners, the middle class getting hit the hardest. I hope someone can tell me I’m wrong. We will probably end up with more uninsured then we were before the law.

  • Bwana Mkubwa

    Speaker Boehner should be told old Texan Folklore…….”Man who play with Rattlesnakes,soon get bitten !” I learned in S.E.Asia, “Not to put too much trust in Snake Charmer with Cobras”. Defanged Cobras grew new ones fast ! Congress and Senate full of Rattlesnakes and Cobras. King Cobra live in White House ! Watch out where putting feet when opening mouth ! Caveat Emptor.

    So again it’s the democrats that refuse to negotiate and blame everyone else for their failure. This is how our government is designed to work, by negotiation. It is not a dictatorship where one side gets to demand whatever their hearts desire. This is true for both sides of the aisle.

  • SallyE

    This will only end when Barry thinks he is getting most of the blame for the shutdown. As long as he can successfully blame it on the Republicans he’ll keep it going. This IS his fault. He refuses to back down from his socialist ideology while blaming everyone else. This man is incapable of leadership. What a poor excuse for a president. In fact, I never refer to him by that title. I just call him Barry Hussein, leader of the Choom Gang.
    Funny that he got caught trying to keep the WWII vets away from their monument. Good for the congressmen who went down there to let them in. I would like to see some bikers show up to escort the vets. Bet Harry Reid would wet his pants if he had to go up against a biker pushing a vet in a wheelchair!

    You can tell by Obamas face he is enjoying the prospect of further dismantling of the system he and his farther hated so much and the democrat and republican puppets are to lame to understand that his dream for the United States is going as planned and Soros/Obama plans are right on track. Do not give in Washington pariots as we will loose it all if they suceed with their plan.

    reid said Republicans need to learn the answer is yes. Well that says it all the dems do not want to negotiate, it’s their way or no way, and the media still puts the blame on Republicans.

  • George E. Buttner

    A government that goes from crisis to crisis, so goes the nation: Civil Wars have been fought over less then this crisis. The polls show the American people do not want ObamaCare, and yet, this president will not compromise, and now the Speaker has drawn a line in the sand. I Think we need to give a little and take a little, but in this case when our nation is at the edge of oblivion, our resolve should be firm, so let’s hope the Speaker stands his ground! a Patriot!

  • SallyE

    Reid and Obama REFUSE to negotiate at all. They think it is to their benefit politically. Barry is also threatening the stock market. He wants the market to crash and for people to lose their life savings. He will stop at nothing to get his way.

    If that’s what they want on the left, then so be it. The Republicans have asked for conference and have been cut off. The main stream press better start report the facts on this story if they expect to have any credibility..

    The GOP has got to hold the line or face complete disgrace as a political hack party incapable of doing anything.

    So once again, Obama says, I am king. You will do as I want. there will be now talk of compromise from me.
    The next paragraph he speaks he blames the republicans for the shutdown. Just how stupid does this man think the American people are. Sorry. I guess there are a few not so intelligent folks out there that are liberals and progressives, or both. He is after all a Marxist/socialist poc. When you state that there will be no compromise, you have just stated that you want a shutdown. Now you have it. You deserve it.

      Please tell me it’s not true… Please! It’s just a BAD dream
      right? A BAD dream, a BAD dream, a BAD dream, right?! If I say it enough times
      I can make it true, right? That’s what obumer say’s so it must be true.

      People in their right mind can’t make this stuff up… IS someone
      is just looking for my reaction and this is just a BAD joke… ? No, It’s been
      confirmed by actual employees of both agencies and contractors in the last 18
      hours.

      The House did make provisions to keep these facilities open,
      but dingy harry tabled it.

      Learned yesterday about
      1:30 pm central time, from two different sources in less than 15 minutes, the
      super snoops “support teams” have been declared “non-essential personnel”,
      meaning they are now subject to the political winds. Many team members have
      been “laid off” and sent home till further notice as with those furloughed yesterday
      afternoon. Reason: they were “except from furlough the last round”. That right,
      except from the last round is the reason. And Not just subject to “furlough”,
      but actual “lay off”! That amounts to about 170 people in Miami along. A similar
      number in Oklahoma, then there is Alaska with untold, but more. Plus, two-thirds
      of ALL Remaining personnel are subject to temporary assignments in the DC area.
      That puts all the Remaining support teams in one area. (Most under one roof.) These are the same men and women that are the life lines for operatives (some undercover) all over the world. What is going to happen next???? The operatives where not called home!

      The House did make provisions to keep these facilities open, but dingy harry tabled it.

      Is someone on drugs?! Are there really people in our government that
      want to see our hunter heroes killed and our country under attack?! (Oh, my
      bad, forgot about Benghazi. Sorry.)

      The blow back on this is going to be HUGE if someone doesn’t
      get out in front and get this knee jerk reaction under control. Our national security
      is at great risk.

      Dingy Harry and Obumer will stop at nothing to get their way.
      This is treason in its highest form isn’t it?

      We need for a Federal Judge to sign off on warrants for
      arrest right now!!!!!

      Where my handcuffs? Found the zip ties, Always liked zips
      more anyway.

      Now we truly have something to worry about. Our national security
      is at great risk.

      Locked and Loaded somewhere near a cornfield. But will
      quickly be in place to volunteer and execute the Judge’s warrants for arrest of
      all these morons.

    A lot of Americans have become so insulated from reality
    that they imagine that Americans suffer defeat without
    any inconvenience to themselves.
    Pause a moment and reflect back.
    These are actual events from history.
    They really happened!!!
    Do you remember?

    1. In 1968, Bobby Kennedy was shot and
    killed by a Muslim male.
    2. In 1972, at the Munich Olympics, athletes
    were kidnapped and massacred by Muslim
    males.
    3. In 1972, a Pan Am 747 was hijacked and
    eventuall diverted to Cairo where a fuse was lit
    on final approach and it was blown up shortly
    after landing by Muslim males.
    4. In 1973, a Pan Am 707 was destroyed in Rome , with 33
    people killed, when it was attacked with grenades by Muslim males.
    5. In 1979, the US embassy in Iran was taken over by Muslim males.
    6. During the 1980’s a number of Americans were
    kidnapped in Lebanon by Muslim males.
    7. In 1983, the US Marine barracks in Beirut was
    blown up by Muslim males.
    8. In 1985, the cruise ship Achille Lauro was
    hijacked and a 70 year old American passenger was murdered and thrown
    overboard in his wheelchair by Muslim males.
    9. In 1985, TWA flight 847 was hijacked at Athens , and a
    US Navy diver trying to rescue passengers was murdered by Muslim males.
    10. In 1988, Pan Am Flight 103 was bombed by Muslim males.
    11. In 1993, the World Trade Center was bombed the
    first time by Muslim males.
    12. In 1998, the US
    embassies in Kenya and Tanzania were bombed by Muslim males.
    13. On 9/11/01, four airliners were hijacked; two were used as missiles
    to take down the World Trade Centers and of the remaining two, one
    crashed into the US Pentagon and the other was diverted and crashed
    by the passengers. Thousands of people were killed by Muslim males.
    14. In 2002, the United
    States fought a war in Afghanistan against Muslim males.
    15. In 2002, reporter Daniel Pearl was kidnapped
    and beheaded by Muslim males.
    16. In 2013, Boston Marathon Bombing, four
    innocent people including a child killed, 264 injured by Muslim males.

    No, I really don’t see a pattern here to justify profiling,
    do you? So, to ensure we Americans never offend anyone, particularly
    fanatics intent on killing us, airport security screeners will no
    longer be allowed to profile certain people. Absolutely No Profiling!
    They must conduct random searches of 80-year-old women, little
    kids, airline pilots with proper identification, secret agents who are
    members of the President’s security detail, 85-year
    old Congressmen with metal hips, and Medal of Honor winner
    and former Governor Joe Foss, but leave Muslim Males alone
    lest they be guilty of profiling..
    Have the American people
    completely lost their minds or just their Power of Reason???
    Let’s send this to as many people as we can
    so that the Gloria Aldreds and other stupid attorneys along with
    Federal Justices that want to thwart common sense, feel ashamed of
    themselves — if they have any such sense.
    As the writer of the award winning story
    ‘Forrest Gump’ so aptly put it, ‘Stupid Is As Stupid
    Does’.
    Each opportunity that you have to send this to
    a friend or media outlet…Do It!
    OR JUST SIT BACK, KEEP BITCHING AND DO NOTHING.

    If I got called names by childish jerks including Barack Obama and Harry Reid, would I reward them by voting against the will of my constituency, the people that provided me my job?
    Respect and cooperation are things that must be earned.
    Obama and Reid have poisoned the well.

    These people are going to push the American people so hard that they will erupt into violence.
    Perhaps that is what they want. Maybe Obama wants the violence as an excuse to declare martial law and become the first dictator of the USA.
    Do not fall for it. Be in a defensive posture only, BUT BOYCOTT THE GOVERNMENT – all of it.
    Get out of the banks. Stop paying for your own destruction. Turn the television off. Go to the Internet and wage a relentless war of words and ideas against these people.
    Refuse to buy Obamacare, and refuse to pay the fine.
    Stay out of the banks, and protect your family.

    The beast will kill itself because they will go broke on their watch.

    What is the expectation of a meeting where one side refuses to negotiate? The opportunity to surrender? That may very well be the only expectation there could be? For instance like, from what I read, Santa Ana at the Alamo. Looks like obama got the same answer.

    TAHCA (the affordable healthcare act), AKA obamacare, was originally set up to fail we all pretty much know that. He, obama, was actually after a single payer system, he even admitted that. So what difference if it doesn’t work at first. The thinking is everyone will beg him, or the government, for a single payer (total government controlled healthcare bill) and from the unworkable system in obamacare that transition will be very easy. At least that is the thinking.

    All these actions should show the true colors of the liberal progressive communistic democrats, they really do not care about the average people their only concern is the elites. They talk a good story however, their actions tell a much different story.

    The rumor has been spread around however, once obamacare is placed into effect there is no going back. How can that be? If we can make the change into obamacare why would it suddenly become impossible to change back. Only a liberal progressive mind would think that way. Once the general public sees how bad it is it should be very easy to convince people to change to something better. The old system could have been tweaked easily to do everything obamacare is expected to do and without all the fanfare. But that would not have allowed so much government control over the people as does this.

    The first giant leap toward America’s demise is underway, the next steps will be giant ones as well. If in fact the Republicans fail in this effort. Stay the course!

    I received this e-mil from a friend in Florida yesterday. I think it tells what is wrong with the current ” government shutdown ” fiasco.

    Putin said off the record:
    “Negotiating with Obama is like playing chess with a pigeon.

    The pigeon knocks over all the pieces, shits on the board, and then struts around like it won the game.”

    The Senate is worse than the House was under Bela Pelosi, and it’s getting more intimidating.

  • Mr Washy

    What do you call a person who deals with terrorists but won’t negotiate with Americans? Always thought that that was one way to define Americas enemies.

    Mr Harry Reid tar down the Forced to buy Taxation w/ gestapo wrecking of good-hard working Americans lives! Now!

    This is the largest form of Governmental Police Power ever in American History! And a meek minded Supreme Court allowed it to happen. Shame on them too…! You wonder why the IRS and seated President met behind closed secretive doors 153 times!

    The 30 Million exempted – Stand up for your hard working Neighbors!

    Turn back the free cake for once!

    The icing is not worth it!

    He apparently offered up a “grand bargain.”

    Shame that Boehner won’t appoint conference committee members to deal with the budget…something that he has been avoiding for 6 months. In the end, Boehner is trying to preserve his position as the speaker of the house, while the rest of his party has decided to put their political party ahead the nation. You know like what Washington said in his farewell speech, as Pelosi noted last week.

    We have to turn to “no negotiating” stance on the caps and obama care and all these exemptions! The exemptions given to gov’t and muslims have to be purged. No obama care money until it is ready to go! No taxes until it is ready, if ever. No cap increase until we get a signed and agreed to budget form the pres. Then maybe they will negotiate!
