Obama Told Boehner ‘You Get Nothing’ in Fiscal Cliff Talks

http://www.politicususa.com/obama-told-boehner-you-nothing-fiscal-cliff-talks.html

Read into the rest of the article. It says exactly what I said. That the President knew from the beginning that anything he offered would be rejected. And now he stand at a place of complete strength.

"President Obama’s negotiating stance is a lot firmer than many have given him credit for. Obama has been negotiating from total strength. At one point telling Boehner, ‘You get nothing.’

A behind the scenes Wall Street Journal report confirmed that President Obama has been one step ahead of his Republican opponents all through the fiscal cliff negotiations.


The Wall Street Journal reported (Via Political Wire) the following exchange between Obama and Boehner during the fiscal cliff negotiations,

“Mr. Obama repeatedly lost patience with the speaker as negotiations faltered. In an Oval Office meeting last week, he told Mr. Boehner that if the sides didn’t reach agreement, he would use his inaugural address and his State of the Union speech to tell the country the Republicans were at fault.”

At one point, Boehner told the president, “I put $800 billion on the table. What do I get for that?”

Replied Obama: “You get nothing. I get that for free.”

1. No one says a damn thing about something great Obama says but they are all over him

about offering the SS cuts and not even considering what it says in this article and what I am others am saying, that he knew it would not pass and it was just a tactic.

Geeze are we into the hate Obama phase again?
