Obama vows not to negotiate over debt ceiling

Knowing that Republicans will have a better ‘hand’, President “No Compromise” Obama is already making his intentions clear that he won’t negotiate with the GOP over the debt ceiling fight that’s coming soon. He wants his debt ceiling increase just like his fiscal cliff bill – with little to no concessions on his part.

Here we go again.

YAHOO NEWS – After Congress’ narrow dodge of the fiscal cliff, Washington isn’t exactly breathing easy.

Major fiscal fights remain for the coming session and President Barack Obama has signaled his unwillingness to put Americans through another drawn-out battle over the nation’s debt limit, which Congress will vote on this term.

“While I will negotiate over many things, I will not have another debate with this Congress over whether or not they should pay the bills that they’ve already racked up through the laws that they passed,” the president said late Tuesday night after the fiscal cliff compromise.

The nation hit the debt ceiling limit on Monday.

Republicans have pushed back against raising the debt limit in past years, and this time around they’re expected to use the fiscal cliff negotiations as leverage to press Democrats to compromise on spending cuts.

I really hope we can oust Boehner from the speakership. It’s clear he can’t deal with such a mental case in the White House.

    Can we PLEASE stop showing Obama’s picture on conservative sites? I truly can’t take looking at his vile face any longer.


      …if a picture must be shown in place of Obama one of a DONKEY would suffice .”

    • MarkLeisNjConservative

      Agreed… His image is very tough to look at. Regarding replacing Boehner as speaker, I sent an email to my Representative (1 of the 85) and asked him not to support Boehner, Cantor or Paul Ryan as speaker.

      and…”President Obama will return to Hawaii this evening to resume his vacation with his family.”

      His total “holiday” vacation will NOW cost TAX PAYERS a whopping $7 million dollars. THIS should be a real indication that this man has NO plan of spending less in the coming four years. When millions of American’s are on welfare, unemployed, living pay check to pay check and he has NO problem slapping his expensive vacation on our backs. He has no intentions to stop the spending!

      • joyfulgiver

        UPDATE: He’s already there! Wow, he didn’t waste any time throwing more money into the wind.

        HONOLULU (AP) — President Barack Obama is back in Hawaii for vacation after a tense, end-of-the-new-year standoff with Congress over the fiscal cliff.

        The president arrived early Wednesday morning, local time, after an overnight flight aboard Air Force One. He was rejoining his family for a holiday break after having returned to Washington following Christmas to deal with the unfinished business that threatened to throw the economy back into recession.

        The House voted late Tuesday night on a package to avoid income tax increases for most Americans, allowing rates to rise on incomes exceeding $400,000 for individuals and $450,000 for couples. The wide-ranging deal, approved by the Senate earlier, delayed for two months billions in budget-wide cuts.

        The White House had no immediate update on when Obama would receive and sign the bill.

        • Orangeone

          Just shows nothing other than bullying the Repubs into tax hikes. An unsigned bill is worthless.

          • davienne

            what if we write a letter of resignation bill for obo and he can autopen sign it … hell they never read the bills anyway…

    “I will not have another debate with this Congress”, highlight THIS…

    He is right in one sense, Congress will be all new on Thursday. So he won’t be working with THIS Congress. But, the prospects are much worse for us, because there are fewer Rep. now. Wake up America, we are about to be steam rolled!

    • Rshill7

      Right. Maybe he was sleep-writing when he signed them?

      It’s a tough pill to swallow that he is about to be inaugurated again. Remember how King Herod was eaten with worms and died?

      “Immediately, because Herod did not give praise to God, an angel of the Lord struck him down, and he was eaten by worms and died. (Acts 12:23 NIV)

      This is neither here nor there of course. I just think it’s an interesting passage to share. Nothing amiss in sharing. Long live the “King”…in Hell.

      Besides, sticks and stones may break his bones, but Biblical references will never hurt him. Neither would I.

      “Do not take revenge, my friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: “It is mine to avenge; I will repay,” says the Lord.” (Romans 12:19 NIV)

        Let the “worm eating” begin!

  • mikeinidaho

    He probably won’t have to negotiate any more than he did over the “fiscal cliff”! Boehner will fold like a cheap suit and McConnell will supposedly “save the day” by folding in the Senate. No problem for the Demunists! They get what they want and the Republican are as useless as ever. Once again, the powers-that-be in DC tell We the People to take a hike while they collaborate to collapse the system and install themselves in power forever.
    The Republic is DEAD and We the People are SCREWED. Lock and load, folks, it’s the only way out of this mess. God bless and help us as we take back our Republic under American Revolution II!

  • sjmom

    Why shouldn’t Obama demand at this point? Enough Republicans have already caved on their principles?

    However, there may still be some hope because I have read there are now enough Republicans to oust Boehner. IMO that’s why Cantor voted “no” because he wants the job but couldn’t find his way to do this before. I’d rather see Michelle Bachmann or someone who is trustworthy and who can be relied upon.


    …America , your DEAR LEADER PART II is a TREASONOUS SOB as he by passes all the Statutes in your Constitution with this continuation of his blatant disregard for the Laws set out by the Founding Fathers. HUSSEIN OBAMA a MARXIST SOCIALIST should be put on trial by the,’ WE THE PEOPLE …’ and ousted from his position as PRESIDENT of the UNITED STATES of AMERICA for his DICTATORIAL actions . If not done the U.S.A. will become the U.S.S.A. in a head spinning time frame .”

  • R’s need to bring this man to his knees, licking their fingers before any debt increase. Nobody should give the President unitary powers to handle the debt limit. Sorry, this isn’t the 1930’s, where you can pack the SC, FDR style.

  • c4pfan

    People need to get a clue about Michele Bachmann. She couldn’t even get Tea Party people to join her Tea Party organization in Congress. Her staff turns over way too often and she almost lost her seat mostly due to giving no focus on her district/local issues while spending way too much time on getting her name in the papers.

    • Orangeone

      I live in MN and that’s simply untrue. Michele Bachmann’s opponent was well funded by the DNC machine and used television ads to repeatedly lie. Michele Bachmann worked in DC and with WI to get agreement on replacing a critical bridge between the two states in a very sensitive area. No one has been willing or able to do that in decades.

      • aposematic

        The same group, I think, that flooded money to take down Allen West along with the help of RINO R’s in FL that redistricted West. Can’t remember where i heard that Bachmann and West were major DNC targets.

        • Orangeone

          I heard the same thing.  Tons of cash poured in to try and unseat Bachmann and they FAILED!

          • davienne

            Yeah and the useless GOP never lifted a finger or a thin dime to help them…

            • Orangeone

              Exactly!  Not only did that fit into the RINO posturing it also played to the MSM’s “old white men” narrative

      • Whoah! They wouldn’t lie, would they?

        • Orangeone

          Never, ever would they lie.  /sarc  They continued to air a commercial after they were told it had to be removed.  Guess which TV stations?  Yup, the liberal one kept taking the cha-ching and continued to spread lies

    • davienne

      Michell Bachmann has more class and tenassity than any one of the RINOs in government … While everyone was cutting her down for exposing hitlerys aid huma abidin weiner for the muslim brotherhood member she is … Michelle , Louie Gohmert and 2 others [who i cant remember right now ]were filing cases to have her investigated… and has stayed with it

    • A) That’s so far off-topic that it’s almost off-site.
      B) What’s the point of something like this? Complaining?
      C) Congressional staff is a high-turnover job.
      D) She won her seat, and it’s in a tough state for Republicans.

  • c4pfan

    I guess it’s basically a wait and see thing now, because I don’t know if I trust Eric Cantor to do it either.

    Why should he negotiate when the idiotic, spineless Republican leadership will give him everything he wants?? He knows all he has to do is stand before the lap dog media and play the blame game and everything will fall right into place. We, as Conservative Christians, simply do not have a party any more. Rush was exactly right when he said “Folks, you can’t beat Santa Clause.” That is just the way it is

    • aposematic

      Yes, Obuma will just spew the message that the reason why everyone is suffering under his Reign is because those evil Republicans continue to oppose his benevolence. Concurrently, his boot licking MSM/Press will champion the Obuma lies until the R’s pretend that retreating back into their cave was the only choice/option remaining.

  • stage9

    I don’t get it….

    I mean, they passed a bill that increases taxes and doesn’t cut spending…so, um, I don’t understand exactly how the “fiscal cliff” has been averted.

    They’re doing a victory lap for losing.

    • Constance

      Correct. Apparently, they take us all for fools. They’ve done nothing here except feather their own nests and lie to the public.

    • aposematic

      The D’s consider America loosing to be a big win. Maybe the R’s do too, actions do speak louder than words…

    • Orangeone

      It has not been, it’s all political theatre. The bill contains $4 trillion in new deficits.

      Oh, I hear you. You should hear what I say in the privacy of my own home when I’m safe to do so. I’m not proud of the anger I feel towards this man, but he drove me to it. I thought I despised Bill Clinton… this is far worse. This is actual gut-wrenching anger, because I feel threatened as a citizen in my own country by this man. He seems to be alien, like he really doesn’t belong here, and he doesn’t even understand this country. He’s like a spreading cancer – turning people into haters and dividing and destroying. He’s clearly not right in his soul or his mind. Evil is the word that comes to mind for me. As long as I live, I will feel this way. By 2016, I can’t even imagine what will be said in the confines of my house…….

      • Orangeone

        Constance, haven’t you heard about the drones canvassing America? Barky also just signed the extension to read emails without a warrant for 5 more years. Why does he need 5 years to spy if the term is 4 years????

        Its soooooo hard isn’t it? My wife cringes every time he comes on the TV. She knows I’m gonna spend the next thirty minutes stomping around the house with blood shooting out of my eyes. That “press conference” the other day really did it too me big time and then his little smart a$$ comments earlier ruined me more.

  • Just what has NObama ever negotiated on that meant him losing something and we the people gaining something? Nothing comes to mind… Zero… How Very appropriate.

    • Orangeone

      Barky also said that he would not sign a fiscal cliff deal without unlimited debt. Well that isn’t what passed last night and he left DC without signing anything. I predict the bill will never be signed and tax rates will go up for everyone anyway. It was nothing but a political tool to cave Repubs.

  • SPELL9

    We need a new Speaker of the House NOW!!

    “While I will negotiate over many things, I will not have another debate with this Congress over whether or not they should pay the bills that they’ve already racked up through the laws that they passed,” – Obama

    Well, this has to be the first time Obama talked without overuse if the word ‘I‘. Bills that the Congress has racked up? Give me a break.

    Why doesn’t he just come right out and tell the American people that he balanced the budget, the deficit is completely gone, and the debt has been reduced to zero? Then he can issue an Executive Order stating that any news of future debt and deficit is classified information and any public disclosure would jeapardize national security.

    Wouldn’t that just make it all easier for him? I’m sure the LameStream would back him 100%.

    Edit: By refusing to debate with Congress, he is sounding more and more every day like the dictator he truly wants to be.

    I like what Boehner told Harry Reid, “Go F*** yourself.” I think that’s also appropriate for Obama! Way overdue!


    • We see this again and again. When a Republican has finally lost a contest, then they seem to find the guts to tell it like it is.

      Dems are the opposite. Only when they are out of power altogether do they ever soften on the rhetoric.

      Of course, after time, some of them go senile and start sounding even more insane.

      “Jew Hatin’ Jimmy” Carter, I’m talking about you.

      • marketcomp

        Only if Boehner had called out Harry Reid earlier, say when the house sent bill after bill to the Senate, then Boehner would not be in the position that he’s in today about to loose the speakership. I like calling all the dems out, including Obama, and putting them on blast when necessary and what Boehner said to Reid was necessary, relevant, and appropriate!

        • I’d like to repeat it to Dingy Harry’s face.

    Well, yippee. So glad I woke up this morning to see all the continuing good news going on in this country. Pardon me while I scrounge around my cupboards for those Vicoden I still have left from a prior surgery…. 🙂 Gotta get through today somehow.
    Honestly, even though I knew it would end up this way, it still sickens me that it came to fruition. I despise my government. I despise the GOP for their lies and weakness. I do not trust even the “tea party” elected representatives at this point, which saddens me to say. I feel used and abused by my government, and I feel threatened as an American citizen. I’ve never felt this way in my life, and I am sure I speak for millions of other people who are backed into a corner and wondering just what they will have to do in order to get these thieves and liars out of here and take our country back. Voting apparently doesn’t work. Neither does protesting peacefully. Neither does calling, faxing, or townhall confrontations. So, what’s coming?

    Well I hope the Tea Party is ready to “take over” the RNC and soon!

  • Obama may not want to negotiate over the debt ceiling, but he will have to. The conservatives in the House will demand it, and rightfully so. Obama has to realize that those conservative members got a mandate handed to them, too, to stop Obama’s spending. If he thinks they will back down on the debt ceiling, he is sadly mistaken. They will be spoiling for a fight, especially after having to swallow this tax bill. If Obama doesn’t think he’s gained a lot of enemies in Congress because of what he just did, then he’s dreaming.

  • Sober_Thinking

    Boehner is less than worthless. Obama is worse than insane.

    I have no doubt they will do the wrong thing.

    Obama is a dictator and a monster. And the House is letting him continue on as both.

    “I really hope we can oust Boehner from the speakership.”

    So don’t make any deals. Obama cannot raise the debt ceiling on his own. Don’t raise it.

  • This coming from the man who voted against raisin the debt ceiling as a Senator under Bush. He is such a fraud.

  • RocklinConservative

    What??? The debt limit came and passed and we can still pay our bills? Was I not led to believe in the last debt ceiling emergency that once we hit that point, all hell was going to break loose because we couldn’t???? Social security was going to stop, we wouldn’t be able to make our payments to our creditors (China) and they were going to call in all our debts? How come they haven’t made this into a crisis this time?

    • Orangeone

      Because Barky is demanding even higher taxes be paid from the wealthy in the “debt ceiling” bully tactics. He won’t stop until the wealthy surrender 100% of their wealth and all they assets and go before his death panel for beheading.

      • …and by ‘wealthy’ you mean “anyone not currently on food stamps,” right?

        • Orangeone

          Yup!  He just had another stmt today that he hasn’t gotten enough revenue from the wealthy.  Frankly, those on food stamps are better off than the working ones in the lowest federal tax bracket.  Sick and upside down.

    You azzholes. Republicans were the ones who incurred this debt. Now they are threatening the full faith and credit of the United States by refusing to pay it. Raising the debt ceiling has never been a political issue. It was raised 18 times under Reagan and 7 times under Bush. The fact that Republicans are willing to play this dangerous game with our national economy shows they don’t love this country at all.

    Why do Republicans hate America?

  • dales1019

    Why do Republicans need “concessions” in order to agree to pay the bills? Democrats: The electric bill needs to be paid. Republicans: No, I refuse to pay ANY bills until we agree to use less electricity!! See, it makes no sense. So much for the party of fiscal responsibility.
