… For Once I Agree with Joe Scarborough [Nuclear Option] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,November 25th,2013

.. the way that he has been going , I think that former Congresscritter Joe Scarborough [R-Fl] has changed into a “D.” That is to be expected , considering who he works for these days [pMSNBC] .

.. for once , i actually agree with something that he has to say . He was a bit off on it , though . The ObamaCrapCare bill was passed in the Senate via what is known as the ” Reconciliation ” process (with the adoption of a budget) .So ” Morning Joe ” whiffed on that point . The large point of his clip [link] , for once , I actually agree with …

Woodward: If Shutdown or Debt Ceiling Causes Economic Crisis, It’s on the ‘President’s Head’

Bob Woodward of The Washington Post said if there is a “downturn or a collapse” resulting from the failure of CR or debt ceiling

negotiations it will be on President Obama’s “head” Monday on Morning Joe.

Woodward noted he respected President Obama’s objection to negotiating on the debt ceiling, but criticized the administration for failing to initiate any dialogue that could result in a deal on funding the government.

“It’s on the president’s head, he’s got to lead, he’s got to talk” Woodward said:

BOB WOODWARD: Can I enter in here just for a moment because I think it’s a good question. And there is something the president could be doing. He said he will not negotiate on the debt ceiling. A reasonable position. “I will not be blackmailed” he said. But he should be talking. They should be meeting, discussing this, because as I think Steve Ratner showed earlier, the American economy is at stake and the president, if there is a downturn or a collapse or whatever could happen here that’s bad, it’s going to be on his head. The history books are going to say, we had an economic calamity in the Presidency of Barack Obama. Speaker Boehner, indeed, is playing a role on this. Go back to the Great Depression in the 1930s. I’ll bet no one can name who was the speaker of the House at the time. Henry Thomas Rainey. He’s not in the history book it’s on the president’s head. He’s got to lead. He’s got to talk. And the absence of discussion here, I think, is baffling element.

LEC here again — this is an interesting take from a so – called leading light in the media . You can say what you want about Clinton and his politics (he was superb at it) , but at least he negotiated , and knew when  to move , and when not to . In a case like this , it requires two to tango . The G.O.P. has moved enough , for now . It is now up to POTUS to get the lead out of his butt and get moving …
