Here’s what passes for news:
“The official says Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, House Speaker John Boehner, and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi have been invited to the meeting. The official says Obama will urge the House to pass a spending bill to allow the government to reopen”
I’m not sure when Barry is going to get the message that talking to Boehner is useless. Boehner is done. Boehner is toast. Barry can urge Boehner all he wants, but what Barry really needs to be doing is talking to the Republicans who feel snubbed by, for example, meetings like this, while they are cheered on by the folks back home in their safe seats. So Barry can urge Boehner to pass a spending bill, and Boehner can tell Barry that he likes his leadership post, and then they can all play pinochle.
