Monica Crowley, author of the New York Times bestseller What the (Bleep) Just Happened? talked to Brian about the dinner President Obama had with a group of GOP senators. "What I think he's doing is inviting these Republican senators to dinner, and Paul Ryan to lunch today, and going on and on with these congressional leaders as a setup," Crowley said.
She went onto explain that with this setup, once the economy goes south and the sequester kicks in, President Obama can now blame the Republicans and say, "look, I tried. I had these guys to dinner, I had them to lunch, I was operating in good faith, and still, nothing."
