Nonsequitur: President Obama Calls Speaker Boehner to Say He Won’t Negotiate

October 8, 2013

Here’s how CNN described it (under the euphemistic title, “They’re Talking”):

Boehner spokesman Brendan Buck said Obama reiterated his refusal to include the debt ceiling and a short-term spending plan to end the shutdown in negotiations on broader policy issues.

A White House statement said Obama “is willing to negotiate with Republicans — after the threat of government shutdown and default have been removed — over policies that Republicans think would strengthen the country.”

Either way, the President won’t talk about the shutdown or debt ceiling. That means he won’t negotiate.
