The teabag congress must be loving this:
White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said Thursday the Obama administration does not believe the 14th Amendment gives the President the ability to ignore the debt ceiling, Reuters reported.
Meanwhile President Obama…
…says he won’t negotiate under any circumstances. And his top advisors say he’s adamant on the point — not just because of the current impasse but to take hostage taking over the national debt off the table for good.
Without the 14th Amendment, the President’s leverage is rooted in depending on the on the goodwill and common sense of the Lunatic Party. So what is the deal? The teabag Congress is just going to get all rational all of a sudden just on it’s own.
…coming off a big loss on taxes….with a weak speaker that can’t even broker a deal to pay a lunch tab. Yeah. That is going to happen.
