Fernandez: “This town ain’t big enough for the few of us…” (4)

CBS says President Obama “abruptly” left the debt negotiations meeting with Congress. He said “enough’s enough” and that he had been “very patient.”

During the meeting, Speaker of the House John Boehner reportedly challenged the President to offer real spending cuts. He said the gimmicks and accounting tricks that Washington has used for decades are not applicable here, according to the GOP aide.

When White House officials allegedly attempted to justify budgetary gimmicks, the House Speaker John Boehner said pointedly and, “We’re not doing that anymore,” according to the GOP aide.
