Raw audio: Cantor describes Obama walking out of debt talks

On Wednesday evening a Reuters journalist captured audio of House Republican Leader Eric Cantor describing an abrupt end to debt ceiling talks at the White House. Cantor tells reporters that the President Obama “walked out” and appeared “very agitated, seemingly.”

Cantor also recounted Obama telling the assembled political leaders that, “he ‘had sat here long enough, and that no other president — Ronald Reagan wouldn’t sit here like this.’” Cantor says he was taken aback when Obama warned him, “Eric, don’t call my bluff. I’m going to the American people with this.”

“I’ll see you tomorrow,” Cantor recounts Obama saying, as he shoved back from the meeting table and left the room.

The complete raw audio (with, warning, some flutter and background noise) is available below.
