ABC reporter super-slams WH in less than 30 seconds

The consequence of President Obama’s repeated refusal to negotiate with House Republicans over any issue was highlighted by an ABC reporter at Wednesday’s White House press briefing.

After ABC’s Jonathan Karl confirmed with Chief White House Spokesman Jay Carney that “the president’s positions is, he will not negotiate over the debt ceiling,” he asked, “How is that tenable?”

President Obama excoriates Republicans for not succumbing to his requests for debt ceiling increases, claiming each time that they’re risking a default and government shutdown. Karl pointed out that the president’s unbudging position means that he’s the one risking default — not Congress.

The president can’t have it both ways. He can’t refuse to negotiate and claim Republicans are the ones risking default.

Watch the exchange below. The video was posted on YouTube by GOP Rapid Response.

    You guys are killing me here with all the comments, I have enjoyed reading each and every one. Now, will someone please answer the question of ” What do we do to get this man out of office before 2016?” No one wants to, or knows how to answer this.

      Petition The House of Reps to begin Impeachment Proceedings. Start there.

      Dottie.. It’s up to you and only you to make it happen. Lots of praying to God and Jesus might help. They are both Republicans and card-carrying NRA members.

    Its about time we hear from some intelligent ABC reporters! He nailed Jay C to the wall, what a horrible mess we are in thanks to a president that is not qualified to be a leader of the greatest country ever. We better get some conservatives into office and get rid of the rino’s and the liberals by voting them out.

    Why should he negotiate when the Tea Party will primary anyone who actually negotiates. That is why it’s a non starter for the President. The GOP is like Lucy pulling the football away from Charlie Brown. After a while you have have to quit talking or listening to her.

    And low intelligence voters would let obumbo win again. Kudos to the reporter!
