Bombshell: White House planned shutdown

Post by Dennis324 on Thu Oct 17, 2013 4:22 pm



WASHINGTON — The shutdown was deliberately orchestrated by the White Houseaccording to the former foreign editor of Newsweek and editor-in-chief of the New York Times Magazine.
 
Why would the White House intentionally cause such pain and havoc across the country?
It is a ploy to win votes, concluded author Ed Klein.
 
He told the New York Post that President Obama’s closest adviser, Valerie Jarrett, developed a strategy to force a showdown with Republicans over Obamcare.
 
Jarrett recommended shutting down government because, Klein said, she believed voters would pin the blame on Republicans.
And that would give Democrats the opportunity to win control of the House of Representatives in the 2014 midterm elections.


“She convinced the president that a government shutdown and default offered a great opportunity to demonize the Republicans and help the Democrats win back a majority in the House of Representatives in 2014,” he explained.
“Valerie also came with the idea of using the words ‘hostage,’ and ‘ransom’ and ‘terrorists’ against the Republicans,” Klein maintained.

Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, believes there was evidence in plain view that the administration planned the shutdown in advance. 
Gohmert told Fox News that on the eve of the shutdown, Sept. 30, the administration already had barricades and cones in place.
“They had worked out in advance they were closing these things down.”


The congressman said “that’s the only thing that explains” why the White House turned down their proposals and compromises.

If so, the reps played right into it. I think both sides had plans for a shutdown beforehand. Especially given the professionally printed signs that went up all across america the first morning of the shutdown.

Ah yeah!  The GOP leadership are morons.  And the ones who aren't are likely more concerned about power and money than what's good for the people of this country.

Who exactly was the "leadership" here? Seems like all the decisions were being made by Ted Cruz and the other tea partiers, and Boehner couldn't do anything about them.

Was Cruz and the Tea Party wrong for trying to stop horrible legislation???

Look, it doesn't matter what "side" you are on(and the fact that we now have sides is childish and troubling), bad legislation hurts us all. It is never, ever a good thing to like bad laws just cause you like the side that wrote them.

Don't tell me you're defending John Boehner.  Wink
