Obama to Cantor: Don’t call my bluff!

The Hill is reporting that before Obama apparently got a little upset in the debt talks earlier today:

Republicans said a tense negotiation over raising the $14.3 trillion debt limit at the White House ended when President Obama stormed out of the meeting with a stern warning to Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.): “Don’t call my bluff.”

“It ended with the president abruptly walking out of the meeting,” Cantor told reporters upon returning to the Capitol. …

Cantor said he asked Obama if would consider allowing two votes on the debt ceiling to give leaders more time to negotiate additional budget savings while avoiding a calamitous default.

“That’s when he got very agitated, seemingly, and said that he had sat there long enough, and that no other president – Ronald Reagan wouldn’t sit here like this – and that he’s reached the point where something’s got to give,” Cantor said, describing the president’s reaction.

“He said to me, ‘Eric, don’t call my bluff. I’m going to the American people with this,’” Cantor said. “I was somewhat taken aback,” he added with a smile.



Levin reported this as well and then went into a passionate monologue ripping the main stream propaganda media and the left for not reporting the truth about how much money we have and what will be spent. It’s great!
