OF COURSE, BLAME SOMEONE ELSE. WASN'T OBAMA THE ONE WHO WENT IN SAYING HE WOULD NOT NEGOTIATE ?
"The president remains hopeful that common sense will prevail" IS WHAT OBAMA SAID IN ANOTHER ARTICLE. DOESN'T COMMON SENSE APPLY TO BOTH PARTIES ?.........IT SEEMS TO ME THAT "O" IS JUST WAITING FOR THE "EVIL" REPUBLICANS TO KNUCKLE UNDER AND APPPEASE HIS EGO........ BOEHNER IS NOT MY FAVORITE PERSON BUT I'M GLAD TO SEEE HE FINALLY HAS THE CAJONES TO STAND UP TO OBAMA [OUR FEARLESS DICTATOR] NEDRA PICKLER, AP
Obama is speaking at a small business just outside of Washington on the third day of the shutdown. He says Boehner is preventing a vote on a funding bill because he doesn't want to anger "extremists" in his party.
The president is calling on Boehner to quickly hold a vote on a bill free of extra demands. The president met with Boehner and other congressional leaders at the White House for more than an hour Wednesday, but no agreement was reached.
Obama says the longer the shutdown goes on, the worse the impact on the U.S. economy will be.
