« Wednesday Morning News Dump | Main | "Enforce it Vigorously:" Florida Orthodontist Brings Suit to Compel Obama to Enforce ObamaCare as Actually Written, Regarding the Employer Mandate »
October 02, 2013

When a narrative implodes in the park, does it make a sound?

I'm stealth underposting this due to timeliness of the information.
Bottom line: Obama blinked and wants to talk now.

The "optics" of Obama's petulant gambit at the WWII monument were changing faster than the shape of a Hatteras sand bar in a hurricane.

This is what happens when you're tone deaf and living in bubble world.

"It is dangerous to play politics with the Budget." -- Clement Attlee (post war Brit labor party PM)

Sage wisdom there coming from a leftist. But Obama is not a leftist in the traditional sense of an Attlee.

How far off track has Obama's scheming gone?
NOW, suddenly, after his plans went all pear shaped and the optics at the WWII monument started breaking ugly, Obama wants to talk, and right now damnit!

President Barack Obama summoned leaders in Congress from both parties to the White House on Wednesday as the federal government shutdown entered its second day with no immediate resolution in sight.

House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., were set to huddle with the president at 5:30 p.m...

Petulance has turned to panic.

Its said no plan survives intact upon contact with the enemy. Obama and Reid's collapsed on contact with a few old guys who wouldn't be cowed.

Bonus hilarity from the Searchlight Strangler in that NBC piece -- Harry Reid says: "I'm not a criminal. I'm not a scoundrel,".
