In so many words.
Hats of to Boehner… the world is learning that there’s no negotiating with the thug-in-chief:
House Republican leaders have called off negotiations with the White House over a broad deficit reduction deal tied to an increase in the federal debt limit and will begin exclusive talks with Senate leaders to avert a government default on Aug. 2, Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) announced Friday.
Boehner told House Republicans in a letter that President Obama is “adamant” about raising taxes and would not agree to “fundamental changes” to entitlement programs.
“For these reasons, I have decided to end discussions with the White House and begin conversations with the leaders of the Senate in an effort to find a path forward,” Boehner wrote in the “Dear Colleague” letter.
Boehner will now feel the wrath of Obama’s curmudgeons in the media but let’s hope he finds some Palin backbone and sticks to his guns… speaking of Palin, now would be a great time for her to give him a call and say exactly that.
Get the popcorn folks, this is gonna get interesting.
