Obama Slams Door Before It Was Opened

Obama said tonight in his Joint Session Health Care Speech,

This is the plan I'm proposing. Its a plan that incorporates ideas from many of the people in this room tonight Democrats and Republicans. And I will continue to seek common ground in the weeks ahead. If you come to me with a serious set of proposals, I will be there to listen. My door is always open.
Once again, actions speak louder than words. Obama has not invited the Republican leadership to White House health care discussions since April. On May 13, 2009 a letter from House GOP leader John Boehner and 9 other Republicans was sent to the president offering to discuss points of agreement. In the letter, the Republicans expressed a clear willingness to work together,
"We write you today to express our sincere desire to work with you and find common ground on the issue of health care reform."
So far, there has been no response from the White House. The LA Examiner today wrote,
"In a conference call with bloggers today, the Whip Group said that the White House response was essentially, "thanks, but no thanks." "
So much for the open door shtick.
