President Obama and Mitt Romney met face to face today for the first time since the election, breaking bread at the White House as talks over the looming "fiscal cliff" appeared to be faltering on Capitol Hill. "I bet it was and is quite tasty," Obama spokesman Jay Carney said of the lunch as it was underway, "because [the chefs] know how to prepare very fine meals." The menu included white turkey chili and Southwestern grilled chicken salad, the White House said in a written statement following the meal.

White turkey chili? Isn´t that a form of racism?

Everyone, check out the photo which was released by the White House. I was stunned at how tacky and poorly-decorated the Oval Office appeared! The super casual dull brown couch looks like something you put in a kids´ rumpus room. Is it just me.. I can´t remember the Oval Offce looking like that!

The photo in the Oval Office shows a dominant Romney looking presidential and Barry looking like his usual slouchy self.
What should have been ..except for a lousy 320,000 votes in the Battleground States.
" The former GOP nominee arrived without fanfare or entourage, opening his own car door both times."
Typical Romney , unlike Emperor Barry .
This was clearly Barry using the lunch to show how bipartisan he is compared to
those awful Congressional Republicans.
Plus, he probably got pleasure out of taunting Romney by what could have been.

Zippy and Mittens hooking up for burgers and beer so Zippy can put some muscle on him to get his Repstablishment buddies like McLame Grahamnesty and Snoweball to roll over like good dogs and get their bellies rubbed and vote for his stuff.
I am sure Mittens will be a good boy and do what he is told.

Oh come on folks--white turkey has a symbolism all its own. And I wonder given the level of the cookery, if Romney was able to keep it down without a Bromo.

Why Mitt even accepted is beyond me. It´s all blue smoke and mirrors, and Romney knows it. There may have been some Congressional strategy behind it, maybe Paul Ryan convinced him--who knows.

Perhaps seeing the New Apostle, it will convince him and Ann to accept a long Mormon mission--outside the country. In all honesty, the mission I´d give him is to head up a multi-organization, wholly private effort to organize relief and rebuilding efforts post-Sandy, as the ARC has made a botch of it.

Mr. Romney was used by BHO to make BHO look bipartisan, flexible, and gracious within the context of the Fiscal Cliff. It´s the Republicans that are the ones being partisan and inflexible don´t ya know.

Wonder how many showers Governor Romney took after his obligatory call on the prez as dictated by his own good manners and the fact that he planned to be a uniter.

If I were him I would get out of Dodge quickly and where I would be unavailable for future meetings. He can´t really help much and can give photo ops for the Alinsky expert campaigner in Chief.

American Samoa would be my choice if I were him. He can afford to fly in the grandkids.

A race well won, a fight worth taking to the people but the illiterates overcame and trying to help obama govern to the right fiscally would be to be used and abused and wasted time.

I was hoping Governor Romney would exit back into the corporate world and make companies that pay their employees wages like Henry Ford did. obama used the word revenge in telling folks to vote for him as revenge on the rich?

Mr. Romney should take a lesson from Mr. Churchill. He should state boldly and publicly that we are walking toward certain self-destruction, state that he refuses to participate in that self-destruction, and go to Italy and paint for a year or two.

That way he makes a clear distinction between himself and failure. When people begin to recognize the folly, he will stand as a symbol of everything that is not Obama.

That is not nice decor. Everything seems jumbled together by someone with a taste deficit. The wallpaper is beyond brutal.

As for the meeting, it would have been nicer if Obama was showing Romney around the place in preparation for the latter´s transition into the Presidency. Not to be, unfortunately.

A few weeks ago, BHO said he was thinkin´ ´bout a Secretary of Business to set a good recovery plan for the folks.
Let´s hope that if his idea is to bestow that title on Mitt, that Romney told him sweetly where to cram his idea. Nothing like trying to set up a GOP fall guy, to take the direct hit when the inevitable financial disaster happens.

So choreographed you can almost smell the greasepaint.

Mitt´s OK. He did what a gentleman does. As Victor Davis Hanson said, "Let Obama Be Obama" - he should own all of his errors, and there will be plenty before this disastrous term is over.

Pipeline Delay

DNC Chair and Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) told Meet the Press’ David Gregory Sunday morning that President Barack Obama’s latest delay in the approval of the proposed Keystone Pipeline was not a political decision meant to animate members of the Democratic base ahead of the 2014 midterms. “As a member of Congress who represents hundreds of thousands of people in south Florida, I want to make sure the right decision is arrived at and that the president makes that decision carefully and doesn’t factor politics into his decision, which I don’t think he is,” Wasserman Schultz said.

LAS VEGAS — Deep beneath Lake Mead, a 23-foot-tall tunnel-boring machine grinds through stubborn bedrock in a billion-dollar effort to make sure water continues flowing to this thirsty resort city. For six years, the Southern Nevada Water Authority has been building an intake straw below the reservoir´s two existing pipes. Due for completion in fall 2015, critics say it may not provide a long-term solution. An ongoing drought and the Colorado River´s stunted flow have shrunk Lake Mead to its lowest level in generations. The reservoir, which supplies 90% of Las Vegas´ water, is ebbing as though a plug had been

(Video) A car plowed into a Fort Myers church filled with 200 people celebrating Easter on Sunday night, injuring 21. Fort Myers police responded to the chaotic scene shortly before 8 p.m. at the Second Haitian Baptist Church on 3660 Central Ave., Lt. Victor Medico said. When officers arrived, church members were using car jacks to try to lift the vehicle off churchgoers who were trapped underneath. Mary Briggs, spokeswoman for Lee Memorial Health System, said 18 people were taken to Lee County hospitals. Ten of the injured were taken to Lee Memorial Hospital, one of which was discharged late Sunday.

A man was charged with attempted murder and aggravated battery in a Friday shooting that left a 40-year-old man in the Brainerd neighborhood with six gunshot wounds. Deontae C. Jones, 18, was held on $1 million bail after appearing in Cook County bond court Sunday afternoon. Prosecutors said Jones approached a man who was outside his residence on the 9300 block of S. May St., checking to see if his recycling bin was full when Jones approached the man and fired at him. The victim began running away and fell to the ground, said Cook County Assistant State’s Attorney Naheda

The first family attended Easter services Sunday at the Nineteenth Street Baptist Church, a Northwest Washington congregation that welcomed the Obamas on the eve of the president’s first inauguration. The Obamas’ motorcade left the White House shortly before 10 a.m. (Snip) The motorcade pulled up to the church, about four miles away, just after 10. The first family arrived through a tented entrance and sat in the second pew in a mostly, but not completely filled church, joining an estimated 250 others. The president wore a light khaki suit. The first lady was wearing a cream dress and sweater. Daughters

CLEARWATER — In the mid-1970s, Wayne Phillips saw a television program telling the story of the Shroud of Turin, a centuries-old linen cloth that bears the image of a crucified man. At first, he was miffed. Years of Catholic schooling — Jesuit High School in Tampa and Notre Dame University — and he had never known about this artifact? (He would later learn that it was a delicate subject at the Vatican.) A doctor, he has a curious mind. A mind shaped by logic and by science. But as a Catholic, he understands some beliefs are still a mystery. He

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

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

If the Rev. John DeBonville could preach a sermon to lift the souls of churchgoers across America, his message would be simple: Stop dressing so tacky for church. DeBonville has heard about the “come as you are” approach to dressing down for Sunday service, but he says the Sabbath is getting too sloppy. When he scans the pews of churches, DeBonville sees rows of people dressed in their Sunday worst. They saunter into church in baggy shorts, flip-flop sandals, tennis shoes and grubby T-shirts. Some even slide into the pews carrying coffee in plastic foam containers as if they’re going to Starbucks. “It’s like

President Obama asserts that 8 million people have signed up for Obamacare, as though that were something to be proud of. In fact, Obamacare has always been a fiasco from a fiscal perspective–a black hole of subsidies and expanded Medicaid, with largely fictitious mechanisms in place to pay for it. As the number of subsidized participants grows, the disaster gets worse. Charles Blahous explains: Our national discussion…is missing the truly significant story here; what is unfolding before our eyes is a colossal fiscal disaster, poised to haunt legislators and taxpayers for decades to come. It is quite possible that the ACA is
