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.
