Following a question about who Americans will blame for the shutdown, Carney highlighted a key difference between the negotiation tactics of the president and the GOP.
“Hereâ€™s what the president is offering Republicans,” Carney said. “Heâ€™s offering them no conditions attached to reopening the government, no conditions attached to raising the debt ceiling.” He said that if Obama were to “play the Republican game” he might do something like say “I wonâ€™t sign a bill that funds the government unless you pass legislation that 90% of the American people support, which is to extend background checks on gun purchases.”
“But, he wonâ€™t do that,” Carney continued. “He believes that kind of thing should be done through the legislative process, the normal legislative process. We had that fight and he continues to press for Congress to pass an expansion of background checks, but he would not do that.”
What saints. The House Republicans have offered three different versions of a spending bill to Obama and his mistresses in the Senate. All were rejected. Then, they said, “Okay, lets extend gov spending for a week or two while we negotiate.” Rejected by the Dems. Then, they said, “How about a bunch of us Representatives meet with you Senators, and try to work things out?”
Again, rejected by the Dem controlled Senate. With Obama’s blessings, of course.
And, the MSM puts all the blame on the Republicans for not “compromising.” Sadly, the majority of the low-I.Q. citizens and non-citizens believe them.
Folks, we cannot win this argument until we take back at least a portion of the media that the low-intelligence, mentally defective, liberal voters rely upon. How can that happen? Beats the heck out of me. You?
