President Barack Obama summoned congressional leaders to the White House on the second day of a partial government shutdown that has furloughed hundreds of thousands of workers and closed military cemeteries as far away as France. Republican leaders welcomed the Wednesday afternoon meeting but questioned whether Democrats were ready to deal.

I happen to agree with you on this. These meetings with 0bama always go badly for our side or anyone who opposes this dictator. What threat will now be made? What blackmail will be used?
Can the conservative base support Boehner et al, in the face of a revealed corruption if Boehner finally decided to stand tall and lead?
It’s really gonna hurt when he signs those ... (I’m optimistic today)
Invite would have been the correct word.
Summoned-authorize or order a gathering of; call together by authority, as for deliberation or action: to summon parliament.
Isn’t it sad that we all know these summons equal blackmail by the office of the President.
Did his round of golf get rained out?
I don’t know that at all. I put nothing past this lying pos in the Crack House.
Backing away from another Red Line, eh?
Listened to some of that, the Dems are blatantly, clearly arguing for keeping it shutdown.
Good thing for them the media won’t put any of their speeches on the Nightly News...
No, he wants a photo op where he is “trying” but the R’s won’t deal.
I hate him like no other soul.
Let’s hope very few are qualified for subsidies, since the only thing worse than the government requiring you to buy health insurance is the government subsidizing the cost of it.
Obama caved, Boehner.
Don’t give in, make them give you:
one year delay
end of religious conscience unfairness
end of anything remotely resembling or connected to “death panels” whether in counseling, funding, or decision groups or individuals.
end of unfair costs from state to state
end of unfair advertising that doesn’t include ALL monthly payments, deductibles, co-pays, and special pays, and add to that average individual costs of all new taxes, fees, etc.
Nah... he is going to pull out his race card.
Government shutdown is racist
Xerxes has deigned to meet with the mortals?
He’s starting to bend ...
But he will not “Break” instead he will “Snap” and it will either herald the end of his presidency or of the Republic...
Time will tell...
He can’t ride the bike today, the girls are using it.
This meeting has nothing to do with the shutdown. This meeting is to negotiate what Republicans want in exchange for increasing the debt limit.
My bet is after yesterday’s debacle with Obamacare, obama will settle for the 1 year delay ( which will go to 2015) in exchange for another trillion. If that happens, both sides win politically while we all lose, as usual.
The pubbies all ought to go golfing
Got to be a lighted course around somewhere.
Don’t laugh I’ve seen em.
Screw Obama. Maybe the WWII vets can reopen the White House while they are there.
McConnell needs to get an urgent case of Strep Throat that sends him to intensive care and he must delegate Cruz to stand in for him..
