THE HILL: Obama would veto any debt-ceiling bill with spending cuts.

President Obama would veto any bill to raise the debt limit if spending cuts are attached, the White House said Friday.

“Yes,” spokesman Eric Schultz told reporters when asked whether the president would kill such a measure.

It’s the clearest sign yet from the White House that Obama will only accept a clean bill to extend the nation’s borrowing authority before a fast-approaching Nov. 3 deadline.

“We believe this should be done without negotiation, without drama, without delay,” Schultz said. “No negotiations, period.”

In other words, give Obama everything he wants or you’re an obstructionist. My advice: Find the dumbest stuff you can and cut it. Then dare him to veto.
