John Boehner to Barack Obama : "WHY AREN'T YOU NEGOTIATING???"

remarks : user eduardo2 in the readers' comments on 10/8/2013 9:44 AM PST in response to the new item "Obama renews calls on Congress to end shutdown, raise debt limit," published on Tuesday, October 8 in the Washington Post.
After reading the full transcript of President Obama’s Oct. 8 news conference on the shutdown and debt limit here, I was tempted to write my comment which I reproduce below :

"Significant damage has already been caused (to all the eligible entities) by the world-wide discussion of the government shut down and the default deadline of Oct. 17. I can't believe that Americans elect such foolish lawmakers who don't realise this obvious outcome of their egoistic behaviour. I hope they are NOT doing this under influence of some vested interests at the highest level, and to fulfill some ulterior motives. This is a globalised world. Someone's loss is someone else's gain. I am trying to know who is going to gain at the cost of Americans in the present uncertain scenario."

Meanwhile, I stumbled upon a very unique response from a reader (user name : eduardo2), giving the chronology of John Boehner's (Republican's) communication with Barack Obama since Oct. 2008 to Oct. 2013. I feel like sharing this by reproducing it below :
