Of course he did.  He wants a default.

Fox is reporting that Obama didn't reject this out of hand....but insists on an end to the shutdown.

I pray the Republicans can hold the line.   :0001:

He wants an albatross around the neck of the GOP for the 2014 midterm elections. He will be talking about this shutdown, from now until the elections, regardless of the outcome from now forward.

He wanted to do far more to "transform" America, but got stopped cold by the 2010 midterm victory, gaining a GOP majority in the House.

When he said he wouldn't negotiate, it may have been the first time in his life he actually meant what he said.

Edit:  I take that back. He really did mean it when he said he'd transform America. We're being transformed into a Third World country.

You are 100% correct. You guys are not going to hear the end of this when elections roll around.

And that's exactly why Sparky used the IRS to shut down the Tea Party in 2012.

Let's not let that happen again!!

This is why I was against this shutdown to begin with. I think we may come out of this unscathed.
To Clear things up...

Mueller has been one of the most respected individuals on the planet over the last 20 years.

Mueller is a Republican

Mueller was appointed by Republicans

Mueller doesn't determine if someone is guilty, The Judge and Jury do!

Doesn't make sense.  If you think we will come out of this unscathed (which we will if Boehner holds the line) and Obama comes out looking even worse than ever - why is your having been against it a good thing?
