President Obama to
meet with Mitt Romney

The Hill [Washington, DC], by Jonathan Easley

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 11/28/2012 10:33:25 AM

President Obama and Mitt Romney will meet for a private lunch at the White House on Thursday, according to a statement released by the administration on Wednesday. It will be the first meeting between the two since the election and will be closed to the press. Following his overwhelming election victory, Obama said he wanted to meet with Romney to discuss how he could work with the GOP nominee and Republican Party leaders on the economic challenges facing the country. Obama acknowledged that the two had “battled fiercely,”

I´m sure this will be a very productive meeing and 0bama will take any suggestions Romney has to offer related to the economy. s/o

The only thing overwhelming is the gap between trash inviting class to lunch.

Why? Why would Bambi invite and why would Romney accept? If I were Romney I would never, ever meet with this horrible individual...not ever!

Romney should not have taken this bait. This is only to make Obama look good and nothing Romney advocates will ever find its way into Obama´s tyrannical governance.

Apparently ´landslide victory´ was out of the question so ´overwhelming election victory´ will have to do.
I hate the media.

I agree overwhelming victory if you consider the vote early vote often crowd, dead people voting and not to mention the voting machine "malfunction" it was very close and if there had been voter id and stricter voting practices I wonder ????

To be basic, Obama wants to rub Romney´s nose in it. Beating Romney unfair and unsquare wasn´t enough to the Perpetual Campaigner. Obama needs to perform a "it´s a black thing" dance in the end zone to further taunt his opponent.

Obama will have on his demonic grin, complete with his Mussolini head in the air posture. Photo op will become a SNL skit, with the old white guy wondering why he was ever talked into running against the cool, brilliant messiah.

If Anne Romney has a brain, she should tell Mitt to postpone this meeting, and never reschedule. Doesn´t Romney have a life?

50.5% of the vote that includes places like St. Lucie county Florida where he got 243,000 out of a total 177,000 registered voters, doesn´t sound like an overwhelming landslide. But thats the language of politics we are going to see for the next few years.

The current vote totals are: Obama 65 million votes, Romney 60.5 million votes. That´s either a lot of voter fraud or a lot of denial.

Romney has not been elected by anyone to do anything. Maybe Obama will offer him a flunky job so that if the economy collapses Obama can then claim that it was a bipartisan failure. Remember anytime Obama puts someone in charge of an issue, if there is a success Obama steps forward and takes the credit, if there is a failure or if the results do not meet expectations, under the bus that person goes. It is very doubtful that such a meeting will be beneficial to Romney or the Republicans.

Romney should politely decline, stating that "I can´t imagine what we would have to discuss." 0bama has already shown that he has no manners and no class, even in winning.

Romney is not as smart or as good as everyone insists. This amounts the same political expediency that made Boehner golf with and Christie hug Yertle the Turtle.

Whatever modicum of like I had for Romney has evaporated with this announcement.

And it convinces me more than ever that the GOP establishment is worse for this country than five hundred Obamas in office.

One can only hope that Romney will bring a food taster with him, or eat before he gets there. Trusting ´the WON´ is never a good idea.

Anyone else wonder why Repubs continually kneel before liberals? It smacks of dhimmitude.

Symbolic gesture only. Romney is now a pariah within the GOP establishment...they won´t have anything more to do with him, even though what happened was THEIR fault. I think he should go to the lunch. It´s the polite and gracious thing to do, and he is a polite and gracious man.

As an aside, I love how us tea party people were the solid force behind Mr. Romney and the GOP elites were the ones who shied away from him as the campaign wore on.

The Farmer and the Snake

One winter a Farmer found a Snake stiff and frozen with cold. He had compassion on it, and taking it up, placed it in his bosom. The Snake was quickly revived by the warmth, and resuming its natural instincts, bit its benefactor, inflicting on him a mortal wound. "Oh," cried the Farmer with his last breath, "I am rightly served for pitying a scoundrel."

The greatest kindness will not bind the ungrateful.

Obama in a nutshell.

The Eagle, the Cat, and the Wild Sow

An Eagle made her nest at the top of a lofty oak; a Cat, having found a convenient hole, moved into the middle of the trunk; and a Wild Sow, with her young, took shelter in a hollow at its foot. The Cat cunningly resolved to destroy this chance-made colony. To carry out her design, she climbed to the nest of the Eagle, and said, "Destruction is preparing for you, and for me too, unfortunately. The Wild Sow, whom you see daily digging up the earth, wishes to uproot the oak, so she may on its fall seize our families as food for her young." Having thus frightened the Eagle out of her senses, she crept down to the cave of the Sow, and said, "Your children are in great danger; for as soon as you go out with your litter to find food, the Eagle is prepared to pounce upon one of your little pigs." Having instilled these fears into the Sow, she went and pretended to hide herself in the hollow of the tree. When night came she went forth with silent foot and obtained food for herself and her kittens, but feigning to be afraid, she kept a lookout all through the day. Meanwhile, the Eagle, full of fear of the Sow, sat still on the branches, and the Sow, terrified by the Eagle, did not dare to go out from her cave. And thus they both, along with their families, perished from hunger, and afforded ample provision for the Cat and her kittens.

The column I wrote last week, it turns out, has created somewhat of a storm. This is due to one thing only: Rush Limbaugh read it aloud on his radio program. (Start reading in the middle from where it says “BREAK TRANSCRIPT.”) That one decision by Rush led all of our mutual enemies to go viral, sending numerous Tweets and Facebook posts attacking Rush and me for supposedly arguing that the anti-Semitic neo-Nazi Glenn Miller acted because of Max Blumenthal. Of course, as I wrote last week in an addendum, this was not the point I was making. I wrote the following, and repeat it once again:

Iran Refuses to Pull Terrorist

Iran is insisting that the United States accept its decision to appoint a former terrorist as it representative to the United Nations, which held a closed-door meeting on Tuesday to address Tehran’s concerns over the matter. President Barack Obama signed into law last week a widely supported bill preventing countries from appointing terrorists as their U.N. ambassadors. The bill came in response to Iran’s selection of Hamid Aboutalebi as its next envoy to the United Nations. The pick drew outrage on Capitol Hill and elsewhere after Aboutalibi was identified as having played a key role in the 1979 Iranian hostage crisis,

Politico: Dr. Ben Carson´s Talent

At Politico Magazine, writer and physician James Hamblin tried to answer the question "Who is Dr. Ben Carson?" After describing how he became a "darling of the right-wing media" after calling out President Obama at a prayer breakfast, Hamblin tried to explain how he speaks in "over the top" language about America in decline. But Hamblin really let loose when he insisted that despite Dr. Carson´s surgical talent, his opposition to Obamacare is based on "sentiment," not a "rational pespective. His talent "does not imply an elevated or even rational perspective on health-care policy." Carson speaks from a unique position of stature

Obama’s Malaysia Trip

When President Obama becomes the first U.S. president to visit Malaysia in almost half a century, he will visit a prominent mosque on Sunday – but not a church, in a country where relations between the Muslim establishment and minority Christians have not always been smooth. Also, Obama’s itinerary includes a meeting with “Malaysian civil society leaders,” but according to the White House he will not meet with Anwar Ibrahim, the veteran opposition leader who since the late 1990s has been embroiled in a legal battle with the government widely viewed as a politically motivated harassment campaign.

On Monday, The Washington Post announced it had hired Philip Bump, a journalist currently at Atlantic magazine’s The Wire, to cover politics for their daily blog The Fix. The move set off a chain of congratulations from across the political press corps. But lost in the media love fest was Bump’s partisan past — a history left unspoken in either the Post’s official announcement or any of the Twitter applause. Not only does Bump’s archive at The Wire betray a palpable bias in favor of progressivism; his career as a journalist began when he headed a vicious pro-labor blog which published the names and addresses of opponents later targeted by

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

He has power, incredible power, and yet to this day he has no understanding of the election that made it so. Moreover, all around him are astonishing opportunities for him to be an historic figure -- one who could and should be the man who did more than any other single person in turning back the red tide of Obama. It’s all there for Speaker of the House, and yet John Boehner manages to miss
