  • quotes:
    • Cantor said Obama walked-out "angrily" after he offered to support two separate debt ceiling votes – a proposal Obama had repeatedly said he would veto.
      • This quote is highly ambiguous: who offered to support the votes? Why would either of them propose it if Obama had already said he would veto it?
    • Update 4: Democratic aides continue to push back against Cantor's account, telling NBC's Luke Russert that Cantor was rude at the end of the meeting, and Obama ended it.
  • summary: House Majority Leader Eric Cantor told reporters that President Obama walked out "angrily" from a meeting on the debt ceiling; Democratic aides say that Cantor was rude and Obama merely ended the meeting for the day.
