“I’m happy to talk to Republicans about anything related to the budget,” Obama said. “There’s not a subject that I am not willing to engage in, work on, negotiate and come up with compromises.”
Well, here we go- one week of tough talk, and now it's time to capitulate and allow the Republican minority run the country based on extortion and blackmail. Get ready for it- in a few more days, this gutless worm is going to totally give in to the Republicans and harm tens of millions of Americans in order to accomplish the goals of the Koch brothers and a handful of other rich sociopaths.
And why should we have fooled ourselves into expecting anything different? Isn't that what he has done every single time his resolve to do the right thing has been tested?
In a few days, details of a staggering collapse in the face of Ted Cruz and his gang will start to emerge, while White House spokesmen tell us what a magnificent deal Obama has struck, and how he was the "adult in the room," which he will have demonstrated by giving in to bullying and threats.
That one remark by Obama has destroyed any shred of faith that I might have had that he would, for once, do the right thing and stand up to this threat to our Constitutional form of government. But then, what was there ever in the past behavior of this useless son of a bitch to make me think that?
