Obama, Abbas to meet Monday morning regarding peace talks

President Obama will sit down with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas at the White House on Monday morning, a key meeting that comes just weeks before a U.S.-imposed April deadline to complete a framework for peace talks between Israelis and Palestinians.

Monday’s meeting also comes two weeks after Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu visited Washington. He was told by Mr. Obama that “tough decisions” must be made to move forward with Palestinian peace talks.

The president is expected to make a similar case to Mr. Abbas, urging compromise in order for the two sides to agree to a framework for broader peace talks by the April 29 deadline.

But the two sides do not appear close. Secretary of State John Kerry met with Mr. Abbas over the weekend and reportedly told him — just as Mr. Obama told Mr. Netanyahu — that tough decisions must be made in order to reach an agreement.

When does the Republican Party, put in the majority by the Tea Party, plan to honor its commitment to halt the growth of the Federal monolith and bring the budget back into balance"?

I wonder if Obama's state media will be allowed to report this or take pictures of him bowing or genuflecting?
