Wednesday, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor proposed a short-term increase in the debt ceiling to buy more time since Dems and Repubs are deadlocked on spending cuts vs. tax increases with an August 2nd deadline looming. Obama, who has said he wouldn’t accept a short-term solution allegedly said, “Don’t call my bluff”, abruptly ended the meeting and walked out. But Nancy Pelosi denied it, saying she’d never seen a President end a meeting more graciously.
- Then she went back to doodling “Mrs. Nancy Obama” and “I Heart Barack” on her notepad.
- She then looked at Eric Cantor after his description of the President’s departure and yelled “You lie!”
- Obama wasn’t really mad, it was just time for his scheduled “Sneak-A-Cigarette” break.
