White House On Payroll Tax Mess: President Not A "Marriage Counselor"

White House On Payroll Tax Mess: President Not A "Marriage Counselor"

In his daily briefing to reporters, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said there’s no good reason for House Republicans not to support the Senate’s compromise legislation on extending a payroll tax cut. Carney said the Senate compromise was “a result that was deemed by the Speaker of the House as a good deal.”

“The president is not, and should not be a marriage counselor” between House and Senate Republicans, Carney said, when asked whether the president would work to bridge the divide between the two chambers.

11. AND..stop telling people who they can marry

 

Get rid on DOMA.

Yeah I know Obama's been pretty good on that.... telling the Justice Dept to not defend it against attack. But of course the Repugs in the House want to step in and save it.

6. Oh that's funny! Good retort, Carney.

You have to be a psychologist and a hypnotist to deal with this sorry Repub party. They just waste everyone's time.

10. I'm sorry

to hear about the divorce. At least now he'll stop being so high-and-mighty. I mean, we get it, your married because you don't want to admit to your parents that you were wrong. I'll still be there if you need help. It'll be hard to trust men, yeah I know, but not all of us are partisan wife-beaters.

Yeah, okay, I'll give you a ride to planned parenthood.
