Obama, Boehner meet about fiscal cliff and agree - not to say much

Washington (CNN) - Twenty-three days since they last met face-to-face and 23 days before the fiscal cliff becomes a harsh reality, the two men most pivotal to the contentious budget talks sat down Sunday.

There was no evidence of a breakthrough, though President Barack Obama and House Speaker John Boehner at least did agree on something: what, and what not, to say.

    Boehner needs to step up and lead. If he wants to solve our national debt by eliminating $140 million in public broadcasting, but thinks that the $90 billion for taxing the upper 2% is not that much and will not help our deficit, he should let us go off the cliff. He cannot pass anything in the house except anti abortion bills.

    what's Tan Man going to do.....? Show "party loyalty" and watch as the GOP is pummelled without mercy? Or work with the president and show some cajones toward the T-trolls? Time will tell
