President Barack Obama held a press conference today to discuss the ongoing standoff over the government shutdown, which entered its second week today, as well as the looming debt ceiling deadline on October 17th.

“Take this drama off the table” the president said and let congress be on record for taking a vote today to end this government shutdown.

Obama let it all hang out even stating that it’s the tea-party who has Boehner and his colleagues in this petty strong-hold of threats. In the meantime holding the American people hostage until they get their way. The president stressed that he’s tired and he knows the American people are tired of this game of retaliation as well. 

Obama says he urged Boehner to hold a vote immediately to reopen the government. A vote could end the shutdown today!

        Simple solution, tell Boenher the American people will buy him a bottle of scotch if he puts a clean CR up for a vote. This way he can drown his sorrow the only way he knows how.

    The GOP is the entity who caused the shutdown. It wasn’t hard for them to have a hissy fit over an already passed law…stoopid asses!

    President Obama cannot negotiate with Congress – even if he wanted to.

    no one know what the Congress as a whole wants.

    why not a series of votes designed to outline the Congress’ actual position.

    without this it is just a bunch of games by Boehner.

    So, if the GOP won’t even hold a vote to re-open OUR government, how can they possibly have any credibility when they say this isn’t their fault? (I know, Repubs always say that)

    Boehner is just looking out for #1%. he is more concerned over getting his way than the survival of our country. He cares less about a vote and raising the debt limit to keep our country operating
