Then he needs to act like a leader. Sit down the senior members of both parties and say "We are not leaving this room until a compromise has been met." Instead, he says that he won't entertain talks until the Republicans work out the issues on their own. That's BS. I don't even care about his politics right now, I'm just embarrassed by his lack of leadership abilities.<quoted text>No, not the presidents fault. He got the ACA passed the old-fashioned way. After going through the proper legislative procedures, it then withstood the scrutiny of a conservative USSC. He ran on the ACA in '12 and defeated the guy who vowed to repeal it on his "first gay in office". THEN the ACA survived FORTYTWO expensive House votes against it!The rest of the world is laughing at us! This is not what democracy looks like. It's not even close to the way we used to portray it.
Hopefully this foolishness stops now before the teapublicans pick up guns to settle this.
CNN just ran a quote that he was "happy" that there was some talk of raising the debt ceiling. I don't give a flying fig if he is happy or not. He just needs to make sure that the job gets done.
