Obama had a meeting scheduled with the republicans and democrats today at 11 am ET. Despite quitting talks yesterday, Boehner said he'd be at the meeting. Now, they're just working to raise the debt ceiling. Actually, Reid and McConnell are said to be working on a plan. Then Boehner has to get the House of Tea Party in line. If that's possible. The sorry fact is no republican can look at Obama, talk to Obama, meet with Obama, let alone compromise with Obama without tea party abandonment.
