"Reid says Cantor's conduct during the sensitive White House talks have shown, in Reid's words, "he shouldn't even be at the table." Reid says other congressional leaders are negotiating in good faith as an Aug. 2 deadline approaches for raising the debt limit."

Translation: Reid: "We can't allow a Republican who actually has a spine in these talks. Send John McLame or Lindsey Graham to take his place...."

I had to take a double take on that one!

GREAT news!

Has the MN GOP been taking direction from Gov. Walker? : D

We can only hope that they finally got some and will make Dayton toe the mark!

Guess you didn’t think I was interested in your corner of the world? :)

Well I'll be dammed. It was just a fantasy of mine that the SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE, who you say is in charge, and his leadership team got their collective rear ends handed to them during the great budget compromise. How much was that again? 350 MILLION when we needed 350 Billion, minimum. If that is leadership, get rid of him and the “Yes” men under him. HE is as much a member of the elitist Republican establishment that got us to this place as is Newt “The Poot” Gingrich and Karl “The Mastermind” Rove. So far I haven't seen Cantor cozy up the the elitists in the party. I stand by my fantasy. I'm a bitter clinger. I'm a Southern redneck. There is no dealing with me.

You raise the essential question. If the debt needs to be raised for what purpose is the funds/monies to be used? There has been much presented that revenues are plenty to cover essential government costs. It is a good time to get rid of non-essentials including support for groups that should be on their own, non-contributors to SS, funds to foreign governments, all czars and staffing, congressional and presidential staffing, etc. etc. It is beyond my reasoning why the USA after giving so much money over so many yeats to so many countries becomes the beggar. I would guess trillions over the years, and has to be concerned with something like Moodys or world bankers opinion as to our viability as a Nation. One thing that comes to mind is that these European bankers want money to bail out nations like Italy, Greece, Spain and the fed reserve and Bernanke need an increased USA debt limit to afford backup for some more printed Fed paper/funny notes.

He could have stopped a lot of this insane spending

Yes, he could have, but it would have been nice if our Congress, either party, could stop coming up with new ways to spend money.

Boehner is getting tired of Kabuki theatrics and negotiating with a shape-shifter.

I feel his pain.

Reid is such a little fag.

If he isn't a fag, he missed his calling. His voice sure sounds like a fag.

No concern here, Reid will have already forgotten that he made these statements about Cantor, it is just too bad that this meeting does not allow the senile...

Is this being done without the withdraw of conditions he was insisting on before?

According to the report in my local paper, Dayton gave up on new income taxes while the Republicans agreed to drop a list of policy changes and a plan to cut the state workforce by 15%. Raising revenue would be accomplished by delaying state aid to school systems and by selling tobacco payment bonds.

Hope that helps.
