Adviser Dan Pfeiffer likens GOP to 'people with a bomb strapped to their chest'

Appearing this afternoon on CNN’s “The Lead,” White House senior adviser Dan Pfeiffer informed Jake Tapper that President Obama bears no responsibility for the debt ceiling crisis. Everything’s totally the GOP’s fault:

And when Republicans aren’t occupied with undermining Obama’s good intentions, they’re busy plotting death and destruction:

From Politico:

“What we’re not for is negotiating with people with a bomb strapped to their chest,” Pfeiffer told CNN’s Jake Tapper in laying out the president’s refusal to compromise with the GOP to win an increase in the nation’s debt limit. “We’re not going to do that.”

He referred to a list of Republican add-ons to a debt-limit bill as “ransom demands,” and said “it’s not a negotiation if I show up at your house and say give me everything inside or I’m going to burn it down.”

Jon Favreau is a former speechwriter for the president and has no problem with the “100 percent accurate” suicide bomber analogy.

The GOP does have a very simple approach: just strip Obamacare funding from the continuing resolution and the White House can have everything else.

According to Pfeiffer, the GOP is threatening to “blow up” the economy over Obamacare. Remember the good old days when the “violent rhetoric” of Sarah Palin PAC’s crosshairs map had people fainting?
