Norquist: Obama Shirking Duty in Fiscal Cliff Talks

Monday, 24 December 2012 12:54 PM EST

President Barack Obama has been shirking his duty in fiscal cliff talks and has “not been negotiating” at all, according to anti-tax crusader Grover Norquist.

“One of the challenges, of course, is people see this happening; they realize that the president has not been negotiating at all over the past three months,” Norquist, the president of Americans for Tax Reform, said on CNN’s “Starting Point.”

“We learned days and weeks and months afterwards that they had non-meetings where this is going on.”

Norquist said he would like to see more transparent fiscal cliff negotiations.

“I was a strong advocate of having C-Span cameras in the negotiating room so you wouldn’t have this situation where the president’s spokespeople say one thing happened in a meeting when the people in the meeting said the opposite happened,” he said. “The American people ought to have the right to see really what’s happening and what the president’s real position is.”
