President Obama abruptly walks out of talks


President Barack Obama abruptly walked out of a stormy debt-limit meeting with congressional leaders Wednesday, a dramatic setback to the already shaky negotiations.


“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....





“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.

Congratulation Congressman Cantor on your election as House Speaker.

Oh, and "don't call my bluff"? What a stupid thing to say. Which means, it probably wasn't said.

Cantor is self-aggrandizing. You can see that, I hope.

As long as you can see that Obama can act like an immature ass at times like these.

He can definitely be an immature ass. That interview with the Texas reporter showed that. And I can even see him getting frustrated with trying to figure out who he is negotiating with. If it is some elaborate good-cop-bad-cop thing then it is not working. If it is just insider Republican Party palace intrigue with Cantor trying to make a move on the Speaker's position, Obama should walk out until the party can sort out their leadership problems.

Cantor speaking without authority from Boener is much more unlikely that O Blah Blah not saying something stupid. Your liberal fantasy is interfering with reality again.:cool:

Cantor is the Republican Leader in the House, Boenher is the Leader of the ENTIRE House, BIG difference

My mistake. I confused the Majority Leader with the Majority Whip.

I guess that explains why you are quoting someone else, then.

Not so much fanboy.

He's been the only one in the room acting like an adult that's put forth a real legitimate plan to reign in the budget.

Self aggrandizing is inviting someone from the other political party to sit in the front row of your press conference and trash them.

Pure political theatre. Bravo! Best I've seen in a while.

It would have been a good time for Cantor to say," Look behind you, Mr President. No one is following."

But then, that already got said.

He said.:D
