Boehner Waiting for Barack the Terrible to Negotiate

House Speaker John Boehner is waiting patiently for Barack the Terrible to come to the negotiating table:
Speaker John Boehner said Sunday that the House of Representatives will not pass bills to re-open the federal government or raise the debt limit unless President Barack Obama comes to the negotiating table.

“He knows what my phone number is, all he has to do is call,” Boehner, R-Ohio said on ABC's This Week with George Stephanopoulos.
In his first extended TV interview since the government shut down closed Tuesday, a defiant Boehner placed the blame for the fiscal impasse firmly on Obama, who has refused to sit down with House Republicans until they re-open the government.
"The president just can’t sit there and say, ‘I’m not going to negotiate,' " Boehner said.
Boehner said that there aren't enough members in the Republican-led House to simply re-open the government with no other strings attached.
"There are not votes in the House to pass a clean (continuing resolution)," Boehner said.
But Democrats immediately called that claim false, arguing that 195 Democrats and 21 Republicans are ready to vote for that bill.
Of course Barack the Terrible has better things to do with his time .... like golf. Barry wants the catastrophe he's anticipating. It's all part of his plan for "fundamental transformation" of our society as we know it. Let's hope the 21 RINOs don't fold. And we need to fall back to our first position: Defund Obamacare or nothing.
