Happy to be in NYC for the premier of Sean’s show at 10 PM eastern. Given the president’s speech just now refusing to negotiate on the CR and the debt limit, it should be an interesting show.
Looks like the president is willing to go to the brink –and over it– to get Nancy Pelosi back in the Speaker’s chair.
The Speaker said he wouldn’t blink and the president says he won’t blink, so shutdown weeks two, three and four loom, as does the fake default on October 17. When that dates passes and the world doesn’t end –just as it didn’t end with the sequester or the shutdown– will anyone take the president seriously on anything? The president is acting distinctly un-presidential, but nothing new about that. He is burying the Syrian-Russian fiasco with a contrived crisis at home while sending the special forces out on twice as many high profile missions in one weekend than he did in the four years prior.
Imagine how he will act when his approval rating falls through 40%.
