GOP To Obama: Save Our Bacon

Republicans are reaching out, and apparently the Tea Party Kool-aid vendors are not at the table, sez the NY Times:

WASHINGTON — The top two Republicans in Congress said Saturday that they had begun new talks with President Obama and their fellow Congressional leaders to try to find a way to end the debt limit fight that is threatening to throw the federal government into default in just a few days.

“We now have a level of seriousness with the right people at the table,” Senator Mitch McConnell, the Republican minority leader, said during a news conference he held with Speaker John A. Boehner. He said that Republicans were now “fully engaged” in discussions with the White House and that he expected a deal soon.

I don't expect Obama or the demoncracts to have a plan. They haven't had a budget since they were elected in 2008. Why start now?
