All Obama’s saying, is give peas a chance:

“I’ve been hearing from my Republican friends for some time it is a moral imperative to tackle our debt and deficits in a serious way,” Mr. Obama said. “What I’ve said to them is, let’s go.”

The president said today he would not accept a smaller, short-term deal. “We might as well do it now,” he said. “Pull off the band aid. Eat our peas.”

Time to “eat our peas”? This from the guy who got to the White House by selling the promise of free filet mignon and Dom PĂ©rignon to his adoring minions.

The president then left his “eat our peas” press conference and wolfed down a chili dog with an ice cream chaser.

The biggest spending president in the country’s history seems awfully eager to cut $4 trillion over the next ten years, don’t you think? It makes you wonder what else is going to be dropped into that package if Republicans agree to it, which it doesn’t look like they will. And I mean “what else” besides the huge tax increases we know Obama is insisting on including in the package. My guess is that Obama’s $4 trillion in cuts would require at least $6 trillion in new spending to make happen.

Hold firm, Republicans. Obama needs you on this, but you don’t need him. You were sent to Washington to reverse the skid, not merely slow it down a little.

Update: The “Pea Council” responds. No, seriously:

A spokesman for the pea council said it wasn’t interpreting the remarks in a negative context.

“We take President Obama’s comment on the need to ‘eat our peas’ as a reference to the first lady’s push to get all Americans to eat a more healthy diet as part of the Let’s Move campaign,” Pete Klaiber, the council’s director of marketing.

“We know that if tasty and nutritious meals featuring peas are served more frequently in the White House and in the cafeterias of both Houses of Congress, it will contribute to a balanced diet, if not a balanced budget.”

    I`ll wait for more analysis before saying more, but the weepy Bonehead`s response to Oblunder was sorta, kinda stiffish and firm… ! He said he agrees that the debt limit must be raised. THAT is a serious mistake that puts the other "standing firm" against raising taxes and holding the line on entitlement spending, etc., in jeopardy !

    "Hold firm, Republicans. Obama needs you on this, but you don’t need him. You were sent to Washington to reverse the skid, not merely slow it down a little."

    Yeah we don't 'need' him period. He's had enough a blank check. For our trolls, had there been a genuine effort to restore/restart the economy, generate job growth and Sheriff Joe kept his word, there would be 'some' level of understanding.

    But when all the Stimulus did was spin off a handful of Gov/Temp make-work jobs and the BALANCE of it gone to line cronies pockets and Union war chests, then the answer is NO.

    He may succeed in turning the Nation socialist YET! But we're not going to hand him over a blank check so he can FUND the Soft Coup under our own noses!

    As Lennon and McCartney might have put it: "Won't you please, peas, help me."

    Priceless Headline Doug – Made my day!

    By the way – heard the Demoncraps had Van Jones come in and give them a pep talk. Or is the perp talk? Whatever, kinda says a lot about what direction the libs wanna go when they bring in that Marxist to get fired up for a fight.
