For the first time since the waning days of the "fiscal cliff" battle in late December, President Obama reached out to congressional Republican leaders to talk about next week's impending budget cuts known as the sequester.
"He placed calls earlier today to [Senate Minority Leader Mitch] McConnell and [House] Speaker [John] Boehner," White House spokesman Jay Carney announced today. "Had good conversations, but I have no further readout of those calls for you."
Both Boehner's and McConnell's offices confirmed the calls took place but neither would give details about what was discussed.

When Republicans call Obama, they are caving.
When Obama calls Republicans, he is reaching out.
I’m sure their little hearts will melt.....
With only one side of his mouth.. With the other side, he was on Sharpton’s radio show (and other primarily black radio stations) bashing Republicans. Par for the course. Loseeeeerrrrrrrr.
The leftist media was probably fed that line by the WH.
If Boehner, et. al. cave on this its over for the GOP for many years to come. Say hello to a third party.
Right. Reaches out...and slaps them in the head.
Yes, it is time for the spineless RINOs to cave once again. It is very sad.
Elmer Fudd to Bonehead & Google-Eyes: “Can you guys cave before 5 PM on Friday. I don’t want to spend the whole weekend talking about what rotten guys you are?”
Bonehead ^ Google-Eyes to Elmer Fudd: “Yuck, yuck, yuck. Sure thing. 5 PM. Yuck, yuck, yuck.”
The affable act- looking for a real man, anyone, to suggest s solution to save his bacon. Then he can attack and blame them for it.
Why do they even take calls from goofus?
