    FNC is reporting this morning that Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis. 1st Dist.) has proposed tying a short-term debt ceiling extension of $118 billion -- that would last about six-seven weeks -- to an equal cut in spending. The Los Angeles Times erroneously reported that GOP conservatives said the plan wouldn't fly. The Times quoted one Tea Party member as panning it, but the GOP is more interested in actually solving the crisis than the liberally-biased media are willing to give them credit. By quoting the one dissenter, they hoped to paint a picture of rebellion in the GOP. It isn't happening. Ryan's plan is going to the White House today in a meeting between GOP leaders and the Great Pretender.

    Looks like the Republicans have finally hit upon a way to save face in this debacle.

    Republicans do not need to save face. They have lost none.
