During the 2008 campaign, the media pushed the no drama Obama theme. They lauded Barack Hussein Obama’s apparent calm during the 2008 financial crisis as opposed to John McCain’s panic. The truth is that the reason Obama was calm was because he knew an economic meltdown helps him politically. Well this no drama Obama theme was, once again, another Progressive lie.
After his inauguration, he told Republicans that elections have consequences. At the Obamacare summit, he got nasty with John McCain and reminded him he had lost the election. When Eric Cantor and Paul Ryan drilled him and pointed out his budget numbers were a lie, he cracked and got nasty. The truth is he’s a nasty person and very thinned skin. Well in the recent debt ceiling negotiations, Obama once again got nasty with Eric Cantor. He even walked out like a brat!
“He shoved back and said ‘I’ll see you tomorrow’ and walked out,” House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) told reporters in the Capitol after the meeting.
When Cantor said the two sides were too far apart to get a deal that could pass the House by the Treasury Department’s Aug. 2 deadline — and that he would consider moving a short-term debt-limit increase alongside smaller spending cuts — Obama began to lecture him.
“Eric, don’t call my bluff,” the president said, warning Cantor that he would take his case “to the American people.” He told Cantor that no other president — not Ronald Reagan, the president said — would sit through such negotiations.
On exiting the room, Obama said that “this confirms the totality of what the American people already believe” about Washington, according to a Democratic official familiar with the negotiations, and that officials are “too focused on positioning and political posturing” to make difficult choices.
Read the rest: President Obama abruptly walks out of debt ceiling talks
Obama can’t take pressure. Bibi Netanyhu, Donald Trump and now Eric Cantor have proven that when you confront him he cracks. This man should never have been President. He is like a child and throws tantrums when he doesn’t get his way. Rather than try to reason with the GOP, he sticks to his ideological tax increase stance. Clearly he is not serious about getting our debt under control.
This should be a lesson to his future Republican opponent. Just attack Obama and he will crack!
