Agressive Negotiations? What's That?

Here's the current status of the debt ceiling negotiations:

President Obama will not call for Senate Democrats to pass a budget in exchange for a debt ceiling hike, his spokesman said while refusing to say if a budget is important to managing the nation’s financial affairs.

“Congress — the Senate, the House — should act to raise the debt ceiling,” White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said today during the press briefing. “This is not a negotiation the White House is going to have.”

Asked if the budget — which has not been passed in over three years — “is more important than ever,” Carney replied, “That’s a question for the Senate.”

Right now I want to hear more about how Obama and the Democrats are the grownups. Because laughter is the best medicine -- unless you have Percocet or Valium or something.
