3. No! That is f---ing it. He's through and I am through with him if this is true.
If this is true, this administration has lost all credibility with me and, I suspect, with the American people. And...he is playing right in to the hands of the crazies.

4. That is the opposite of what Obama has been saying for weeks
There is nothing new that two days is going to add to the situation.

12. That's not his fault
I just hope this isn't a replay of December where we once again let the Republicans run out the clock so they can redistribute even more wealth upward.

14. He has been saying that he does not want to have this fight again
extending the existing fight 2 days is not having the fight again

8. I have doubts that this is authentic,
but if it is, then Obama would only be losing tons and tons of credibility.

9. If a bill actually passed 2 days later, I'd be ok with that.
But if 2 days later, they want another 2 days, and then another, then no.

10. "Look if it takes 2 more days.......
".....for us to get a bill that will cut entitlements, then let's do it."

Sadly, that's the most likely reason.

11. please say this is a hoax.
And if this turns out to be some kind of sick joke, I'm going to petition CBS to fire this Knoller creep.
