Carney on Another Obama ‘Line’

Here we go again.

Village Idiots

White House Press Secretary Jay Carney on not negotiating with Republicans over the debt ceiling: “The President is not asking for anything in return for the Congress acting responsibly. He’s not attaching any partisan demands. He’s not attaching any items from his legislative agenda. … So what would be irresponsible – and I think a lot of commentators have begun to explore this – would be to allow for hostage-taking to govern this debate and get into a cycle in the United States where every time a President of any party faces another party in Congress that has a demand that it cannot get through the ballot box or through the normal procedures in Congress and threatens to default if it doesn’t get what it wants, you’re talking about turning the full faith and credit of the United States into something that’s an open question every year, every quarter. It could be every week. And that’s just unacceptable, and so the President is drawing a line here. We cannot do it. He will not do it.”

Oh boy, Obama’s drawing another red line. And you know what that means…
