As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Video || Carney Vs. Karl on the Debt Ceiling

As you may know, House Speaker John Boehner has reversed his position and will now move legislation funding the government after the Fiscal Year ends October 1 – except, no money for Obamacare. If that fails, as I understand it, Boehner will refuse to raise the debt limit unless Obamacare is defunded.

So the battle has begun. Here’s a glimpse of what you’ll be seeing over the next several weeks – in this case a testy exchange between Jonathan Karl of ABC News and White House Press Secretary Jay Carney.

  1. The monetary morphine continues. Ben Bernanke, due to our sterling economy (sarc included gratis here) continues QE policy. Get your Zimbabwe carts ready to buy a bag of groceries. The damage we are witnessing daily will pale in comparison down the road. Obama will go one of these days and the landscape will look like Detroit from coast to coast. Michelle wants us to eat healthy, drink water and the other Obama demands – neither of them have read the Ancient Mariner. We’re stuck in neutral and drifting at sea with Captain Clueless and his cohorts.

    Day after day, day after day,
    We stuck, nor breath nor motion;
    As idle as a painted ship Upon a painted ocean.
    Water, water, every where,
    And all the boards did shrink;
    Water, water, every where, Nor any drop to drink.

  2. My oh my. Sounds like they’re getting feisty at ABC.

    OK. So if VISA raises my debt limit so that I can pay my bills by using my credit card, it won’t put me further in debt?
    huh. who knew.

  3. Who cares what this lying little weasel says? Nobody who has a clue is listening to anything these regime stooges are carping about anyway.

    Congratulations on growing a spine, John Boehner. Finally, a line in the sand. Hope you aren’t trying to pull a fast one by conspiring with the Senate RINOs to kill the defunding effort. Now you have to get out there and sell the defunding to the American people who have no idea how Obamacare is destroying this magnificent country. Don’t just slink back to your cushy chair in the speaker’s office. Remember the advice of Ted Cruz – DON’T BLINK!!!

    • I say…Defund obamacare or don’t fund the govt

      Remember, the federal govt is closed 115 days out of the year…31%. A few extra days won’t kill anyone

  4. Did Carney just call the Affordable Care Act “Obamacare” at 00:59?

    Imagine if Marlin Fitzwater referred to the Strategic Defense Initiative as “Star Wars.” He would have been told to clean out his desk as soon as the briefing ended.

    Even the carny huckster doesn’t respect Obamacare enough to call it by its “proper” name.
