“I will not negotiate on the debt ceiling.”

Says the man who just negotiated a sweetheart deal with Bashar al-Assad and Vlad Putin.

Obama told ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos that he would not cooperate with House Speaker John Boehner’s demand for budget cuts in exchange for House Republicans’ allowing the government to continue paying its obligations.

“I’m happy to have a conversation with him about how we can deal with the so-called sequester, which is making across-the-board cuts on stuff that we shouldn’t be cutting, while continuing tax breaks, for example, for companies that are not helping to grow the economy,” Obama said on ABC’s “This Week.” “What I haven’t been willing to negotiate, and I will not negotiate, is on the debt ceiling.”

He may not be willing to stand up to blood soaked dictators but, by golly, he will stand up to a weeping John Bohener.

    It’s funny that Obama calls the sequester a “so-called sequester”. Obama was actually the first to float the idea and, like so many of his ideas, it came back to bite him in the ass.

    Pray he doesn’t alter it any further.
