 Obama To Hold Shutdown Meeting With Congressional Leaders

AP  |  Posted: 10/02/2013 11:30 am EDT

BY JULIE PACE, THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON -- A White House official says President Barack Obama has invited congressional leaders to the White House Wednesday for a meeting on the government shutdown.

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.

The government shut down when Congress failed to pass a spending bill ahead of a midnight deadline.

The official insisted on anonymity because the person was not authorized to publicly discuss the meeting before it was announced.

He's been getting his ass kicked even on MSNBC for refusing to meet with Republicans, so I guess Obama's decided to at least make a show of it.

Obama usually gets taken whenever he tries to negotiate, so this may turn out to be a good thing.

This is pointless unless Harry Reid comes to the table.
