Republicans on Sunday said they welcome the White House's new "charm offensive" — even if they are skeptical of the motives behind President Obama's renewed effort to schmooze with some of his administration's harshest critics.

Paul Ryan took to the stump in Virginia, telling supporters that Mr. Obama can't run on his record and is relying on desperate attacks in hopes of winning a second term "by default."
