Pres. Obama “Engager-in-Chief”
President Obama spoke yesterday during a news conference about the ongoing debt ceiling negotiations, again. And, once again, he said something that just needs to be repeated:
“What we decided was that staffs, as well as leadership, will be working during the weekend, and that I will reconvene congressional leaders here on Sunday with the expectation that, at that point, the parties will at least know where each other’s bottom lines are and will hopefully be in a position to then start engaging in the hard bargaining that’s necessary to get a deal done.”
Good show! After months of insisting a clean debt ceiling increase was absolutely essential, President Obama is now ready to start negotiating. Just one question: where are the CSPAN cameras?
