as a ‘successful businessman’

During the White House Press Briefing this afternoon, Press Secretary Jay Carney explained that “the topics will be many” during President Obama’s lunch with Mitt Romney. Carney added that Obama “expressed interest” in bringing Romney to the White House for lunch suggesting that the President was looking forward to hearing his ideas. “He was obviously was a successful businessman, and I’m sure has some ideas that I’m sure the President will find helpful,” Carney said about Romney, praising his record on running the 2002 Olympics. "It will be a substantial lunch, if not on the plate,

After months of slamming him for being a successful businessman.

I loathe Obama and his cronies with the heat of a gazillion exploding supernovas.

There is something that doesn´t ring true about this meeting between Romney and Obama - it doesn´t pass the smell test.

Now that blaming Bush has worn thin, he´s lining up Romney to take the heat for his failing policies.

It will go something like this:
Obama- Please Mitt help me. I need you to convince your fellow republicans to do everything that I ask so we can fix the economy.
Mitt- I´ll get back to you on that.

If Romney didn´t show up for this Bs meeting the press would paint him---- meaning his supporters ---as sore losers. Romney is a patriot he can still help this country disarm the left.

Mitt Christie. This is propaganda for President Revenge and any Republican who opposes Obama will be exposed as "unwilling to compromise" etc. Any economic or job building idea that Obama tries and fails, will be blamed on Mitt Romney, probably now the new George Bush. Stupid. Stupid. Stupid.

What a nasty condescending pathetic waste of skin.

Romney “has some ideas” that might “interest the president”? Right. That would be the president who has yet to provide any leadership whatsoever in the budget talks, has literally no business experience, and spent his entire campaign tearing down Romney’s ideas?

No, this is all about appearance. -0-bama will be the one displaying humble magnanimity in victory – reaching out to the opposition to demonstrate his good faith. Obviously, since he doesn’t even take his own debt commission’s recommendations, nothing Romney suggests will be used openly. -0-bama will try to use Romney’s ideas in a clandestine way so as to be able to claim credit for any success they achieve. It´s a photo op.

This reminds me of two divorced parents who hate eachother and one is threatening to kill the kid so the other won´t have it.

So what is Mitt willing to do to help BO out? He was asked, he did not waltz into the WH so cut him so slack. And if he does assist in anyway, is he ready to step aside and let BO take ALL the credit because you all know that´s how he rolls. Will anyone here be gratefull Mitt assisted and was actually successful.

To this date, Clinton takes credit for welfare reform when in fact it was a Republican Congress that made it happen. It´s maddening.

I think this meeting has to do with what to do with the train going over the cliff or somethin similar.

Obama said he had all the answers.

Obama now needs Romney to save him.

Romney should say simply that his ideas were rejected by Obama...and then say "good luck."

The FBI is probing past legal work done by Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis, according to a report her Republican opponent’s campaign calls a “bombshell.” The Dallas Morning News reported Friday that documents “related to Sen. Wendy Davis’ work as a lawyer for the North Texas Tollway Authority are part of an FBI inquiry of the agency.” The news outlet said it’s unclear how much this investigation revolves around Davis, the Democratic nominee for governor. “It’s not clear whether Davis’ work for the tollway authority is a focus of the FBI or only part of the material collected in connection

Researchers at Princeton and Northwestern universities have pored over 1,800 US policies and concluded that America is an oligarchy. Instead of looking out for the majority of the country’s citizens, the US government is ruled by the interests of the rich and the powerful, they found. No great surprises there, then. But the government is not the only American power whose motivations need to be rigourously examined. Some 2,400 miles away from Washington, in Silicon Valley, Google is aggressively gaining power with little to keep it in check. It has cosied up to governments around the world so effectively that its chairman,

Steve Lynch is a Democratic Rep. from Massachusetts who doesn’t hesitate to buck the party line from a centrist point of view, and to speak openly about problems in the party and with party positions. Lynch ran for Senate to fill John Kerry’s seat, but lost in the primary to now-Senator Ed Markey. Lynch recently was interviewed by The Boston Herald about upcoming Obamacare problems and how devastating they will be for Democrats. That runs contrary to cut current news cycle Democratic spin that (allegedly) meeting sign up goals means electoral problems related to Obamacare are over. U.S. Rep. Stephen Lynch, the

Then-Sens. Joe Biden and John Kerry were both opposed to Hillary Clinton’s 1993 health-care reform program, according to documents released by the Clinton presidential library. Clinton marked a handwritten “No” beside Biden’s name on Clinton’s list of Capitol Hill lawmakers that she needed to win over for her universal health care law, known as the “Clinton health plan” or “Hillarycare,” to pass. John Kerry, meanwhile, was marked with a “Probably not.” “Hillarycare” ended up dying in the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1994 without coming to a floor vote. As vice president, Biden has been a loyal supporter of the Obama administration’s

Wayne Crews of the Competitive Enterprise Institute and Alexis de Tocqueville, author of the classic Democracy in America, were born in different times and places. But the French aristocrat and American think tanker have the measure of the federal behemoth in the age of Obama. Writing in 1835, Tocqueville eloquently predicted how it would function, while Crews today supplies in his annual compilation of federal rules and regulations, “10,000 Commandments,” the hard numbers that describe the behemoth´s contemporary reach and costs. It is always worthwhile to revisit de Tocqueville’s description of what he called the

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too
