The President has stepped to the Republicans…
What are they gonna do?
They ran this into a hole…
Now the President has stepped on their necks….
Lets see how this plays…
It’s about time!

Mr. Obama did not lay down a “red line” beyond which he would refuse to negotiate. But he repeatedly dared Congressional Republicans to side with oil companies, hedge fund managers and corporate jet owners against the interests of the elderly, schoolchildren and the middle class. His tone throughout was defiant.The question is whether Mr. Obama’s pointed remarks about his Congressional adversaries will help jump-start the stalled debt negotiations, or will have the effect of backing each side further into a corner even as the Aug. 2 deadline for raising the nation’s borrowing capacity nears.
So apparently the only thing standing in the way of getting a deal done is whether or not Republicans have their feelings hurt by what President Obama said in a press conference? Sorry, but if Republicans are really that sensitive, then their problems are far, far bigger than anything President Obama may or may not say.
Meanwhile, Mark Halperin says Obama was a “dick” yesterday. Yes, that’s a direct quote from the “civil” MSNBC show, Morning Joe. (Morning Joe blamed it on a producer forgetting to bleep out Halperin.)
But whatever the New York Times or Mark Halperin might say, the reality is that Republicans need to take responsibility for their own actions. They may not like it when President Obama tells them the truth. And pundits like Mark Halperin might think it makes him an asshole, or even a dick. But they can all go fuck themselves if they think that’s a legitimate excuse for Republicans to not do their jobs.
Time to grow up, children.
Join the discussion in LaurenMonica’s diary, Mark Halperin just called Obama “a dick” on Morning Joe.
Update….Halperin has been suspended indefinitely by MSNBC for his name calling….
*It seems that I HAVE spelled Mark Halperin’s name wrong …..It has been corrected….I apoligize for the spelling mistake….

The office of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-AZ), who has been undergoing medical treatment since she was shot in the head at a district event this past January, has nowreleased onto Facebook the first official photos of the Congresswoman since the incident.
The photos were taken on May 17, the day before she underwent a cranioplasty surgery to replace part of her skull with a plastic implant. One of the photos is a solo picture of Giffords, facing the camera and smiling. The other shows the Congresswoman accompanied by her mother, Gloria Giffords, and both smiling.
Probably a real good idea….
Though I think going on a talk program with his wife would be better..
He needs some breathing room…
And the rehab treatment thing plays good….And he’s gotta learn to be a one woman man…
A couple of weeks off for the rest of the stuff to come out might be a good idea also….
The media is in a feeding frenzy…..
The guy IS taking a beating…..
And there probably is more out there…
It will give him some face time with his wife also…..
Rep Anthony Weiner (D-NY) will leave Congress temporarily to tend to his personal life, a spokeswoman for the Congressman, Risa Heller told TPM on Saturday. The move falls short of a resignation, which Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and a group of top Democratic officials publicly demanded earlier the same day.
“Congressman Weiner departed this morning to seek professional treatment to focus on becoming a better husband and healthier person,” the statement reads. “In light of that, he will request a short leave of absence from the House of Representatives so that he can get evaluated and map out a course of treatment to make himself well. Congressman Weiner takes the views of his colleagues very seriously and has determined that he needs this time to get healthy and make the best decision possible for himself, his family and his constituents.”….More.….
