In America, this isn’t what we usually mean by “Minute Man.”

Never let it be said that President Obama has failed to spend time with Republican leaders in seeking an alternative to automatic budget cuts that are due to hit most federal departments Friday. On Wednesday, for example, the president gave GOP lawmakers as much as seven minutes, a rare face-to-face encounter that the White House described as a “meeting.”

The White House’s characterization of this momentary huddle at the Capitol as a meeting illuminates Mr. Obama’s strategy in dealing with Republicans on the budget cuts and other fiscal deadlines.

John Boehner reportedly feels “unsatisfied.”

"Minute Man", "unsatisfied"... Stephen, there is not enough brain bleach in the world to erase that image of 'B and Boehner.

I don't know why the republicans don't scratch together the $500,000 OFA donation. Then they would be guaranteed 4 meeting a year with the prezzzy.

Seven minutes? How long does it take to say "We agree to surrender, errr, compromise"?
I'm sure that is what the President was expecting...

This is what happens when politics trump concerns for the welfare of the country.

Boehner must have gotten the word from Republican house members that his stint as speaker would last about the lifespan of a snowball in hell if he caves to more 'investment capital' - AKA taxes. Good!

“John Boehner reportedly feels 'unsatisfied.'”

The only punchlines I can offer to that are NSFW.
